Dear Brothers and Sisters:  Gender and Its Responsibility

As I watched interviews and panel discussions concerning the use of torture and the fate of prisoners at Guantanamo I became increasingly uncomfortable, annoyed, and saddened to see in the American government open advocates of the torture of human beings. These advocates came primarily from the conservative element of the Republican Party that also receives significant support from the “religious right.” These advocates of torture are proud of their religious affiliation and can usually be seen in church on most any Sunday.

I wonder as they worship, pray, and listen to sermons what causes their difficulty in understanding the fundamental tenets of their religion. What part of “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and “Turn the other check” do they not grasp? Is the meaning of “Love one another as I have loved you” so deep that they cannot comprehend it? Apparently it is and always has been.

The corruption of spiritual truth by Western thought has existed from the beginning as has the torture of those who would not accept its ignorance. From the earliest days of the Christian influence in Egypt, through the Crusades, Middle Ages, and the present time, there have been those who persecute and torture those who think differently than the “enlightened” group in power. The early immigrants to this nation such as the Quakers, Pilgrims, Puritans, Huguenots, Mennonites, Jesuits, and Lutherans were victims of severe persecution in Europe. There are among us today those who would welcome the return of The Inquisition provided of course that they were the inquisitors.

On the other side of the spectrum of political Western thought are the liberals who believe that if the resources of the material world could be redistributed societal happiness would prevail. What part of “Man does not live by bread alone,” “My kingdom is not of this world,” and “What does it suffer a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul” do they not understand? These liberals who rely upon academic learning, material considerations, and governmental power apparently have no grasp of the meaning of the words of Jeremiah “ Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, nor the valiant of his valor, nor let the rich man boast of his riches.”

However, liberals and conservatives alike unite in their focus on matters material and in their aristocratic attitude towards those who do not see as they do. It was because of this European thinking that prevailed at the time of Jesus that he uttered near the end of his earthly sojourn the words “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” They still don’t and that is why Western society is in its death throes.

Every segment of Western society is in a state of decline and its political activists are scurrying about trying to find something in their institutions that will “fix” the mess that 2,500 years of gross materialistic thinking created. It is not fixable. Nothing will change until the thinking changes. The time has come for Western thought to reflect on the meaning of “Lest a man be born again.” A change in thinking must occur within the individual man, and then he will begin to change society.

Men will begin to make change for the soul has begun to regurgitate the toxicity produced by the diet of gross materialism. The indwelling spirit is rousing man from his somnolence. Real Men of courage will rise up and re-establish the patriarchal structure necessary to sustain human development and spiritual growth. Patriarchy is a spiritual structure wherein men expressing the love of God within them dedicate their lives to the propagation and preservation of human existence. It is a structure that enables women to dedicate their lives to the nurturing of the race. It is a structure in which men and women working in accordance with their unique attributes grow spiritually.

Be ready my sons and daughters, you are witnessing an event that has already begun that will transform society to a degree beyond your wildest imagination. You are witnessing the implosion of a grossly materialistic, aristocratic, and monolithic government that is frantically extending its influence into every facet of our personal lives in order to maintain its control. As we see it tightening its grip by the enactment of onerous laws against the family, increasing the use of surveillance cameras, manipulating the economy to financially disempower ever-larger segments of society, and using the media as a huge propaganda vehicle to justify its actions, it appears that it is approaching complete control of our lives; however, it is decaying from within.

This decay will continue until the whole aberrant structure collapses and makes way for the only natural societal structure of the universe—patriarchy. Such a society loves its fellow man and does not devise ways to torture its brothers and sisters. It doesn’t keep them in prison without a trial either.

This past Mother’s Day I visited the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx and from the moment I entered the grounds the sight of the colorful flowers and lush green foliage produced an exhilaration in me that lasted long after I left. I attended a lecture and demonstration given by one of the staff on the care of tulips and in listening to her I realized that she was describing how a segment of the world that God had created functions, and that the entire Botanical Garden was God’s creation in action. Insects, birds, animals, plants, trees, and minute organisms went about their respective tasks of propagating and preserving the species in an interdependent community operating in accordance with universal laws and design.

I compared this activity to life in our modern civilized society with its emphasis on what man has made. Raised in an environment almost devoid of nature (see my essay cubists) and schooled in the works of man, increasing numbers of people have been cut off and insulated from the natural environment they were designed to live in.

The vocational and career training of our children focuses on occupations created in response to the negative effects of our un-natural lifestyle. Social workers deal with the breakdown of the family; occupational therapists deal with job-induced stress; physicians deal with the effects of the pollution of our air, water, and food; and lawyers deal with our inability to relate with each other. An increasing proportion of societal activity focuses on “fixing” the damage wrought by the ignorance of its un-natural lifestyle.

In his book The Holy Science, Sri Yukteswar defines ignorance as the perception of the nonexistent, and the non-perception of the Existent. He goes on to explain that man believes that this material creation is the only thing that substantially exists, there being nothing beyond, forgetting that this material creation is substantially nothing and is a mere play of ideas on the Eternal Spirit, the only Real Substance, beyond the comprehension of the material creation. This ignorance is not only a trouble in itself, but is also the source of all the other troubles of man.

Sri Yukteswar’s comments were in essence an explanation of Jesus’ statement “My Kingdom is not of this world.” At the time of Jesus, the focus on the material world and ignorance of the spiritual world was the source of all troubles, as it is today.

The gross material focus of Western society, especially Anglo-American society is upon material possessions and accomplishments. I had a blogger say to me, “Just look at what we have done,” referring to the accomplishments of Western man. I emphasize the word “look” for the results of Western man’s efforts can be seen. The skyscrapers, airplanes, automobiles, highways, bridges, dams, home appliances and communications equipment serve as visual examples of the results of Western man’s productivity.

The blogger, however, did not “see” our children suffering from a lack of nurturing due to the breakdown of the family; nor did he see the ever-expanding prison population and explosive increase in mental illness. He did not see the utter defilement of the female beginning in grade school where 10 year-old girls participate in sex clubs; continuing to adulthood where streams of women journey to the California, the world’s Mecca of pornography, to serve as interns in X rated films in order to build up resumes necessary to obtain work in big city strip clubs; to the unprecedented rate of unwed motherhood, which spawns juvenile problems and creates stress induced depression upon their mothers. These conditions are not readily seen, but they do exist and evidence the collapse of society caused by its focus on the seen and its ignorance of the unseen.

My pleasure in the Botanical Gardens derived partially from what I saw, but also from what I didn’t see. Looking at the tulip bulbs caused me to reflect on how they produced the offspring that would be the next generation of flowers. I was aware that flowers follow the path of the sun and that trees reach their branches out to it. I realized that the roots of plants and trees unerringly grow towards the source of water and nourishment. Birds always seem to know just where to build their nests and bees know which flowers to pollinate. Unseen forces guide the movement of the entire community of the Botanical Gardens, which provides the environment for the interplay of gender called patriarchy. Everything seen and done at the Botanical Gardens derived from the unseen and its harmony with universal vibrations.

This interplay of the unseen and the seen to produce life and sustain it is not limited to plants, animals and insects, but occurs in greater depth among humans. The indigenous peoples of all continents except Europe based their communal existence on unseen principles. All rites, customs, rituals, traditions, and religious practices derived from their efforts to propagate and preserve the species while it grows spiritually. Their farming, fishing, gathering, and hunting were in harmony with nature and the unseen forces upon which it depended.

Western man calls these societies primitive because they had not exploited their resources to construct material things. These “primitive” societies did not have orphanages, foster care, old-age homes, prisons, and insane asylums. They had no need for social workers, therapists, police, or parole officers, and they didn’t have to take vacations or anti-depressants. They had a high regard for matters spiritual, lived in harmony with nature, and were happy.

The “ME” orientation of Western society focuses on the accumulation of material things and a self-indulgent lifestyle. The American Constitution emphasizes the right to health, wealth, and the pursuit of happiness; there’s nothing in it about the propagation of the species, family, universal love, or spirituality. Freelance writer Wendy Dawn’s article titled Wealth, Wealth and the Pursuit of Happiness that appeared in Associated Content described the growing emphasis on material accumulation in America and the resultant decline in fundamental values.

Published on November 20, 2007 Wendy’s article reflects a growing awareness on the part of Americans that the emphasis on gross materialism is creating negative effects on society and is un-natural. At the time of her article there was little recognition of the cause of this materialistic emphasis, namely the imbalance of gender in Western society. However, I have noticed an increasing awareness of gender issues in the past six months along with an increased realization that men and women are different not only in appearance but in attributes. Eventually people will come to realize that these different attributes were designed for different functions and that a genderless society is an aberration.

This trend is encouraging, especially when I consider that the establishment and all the institutions under its jurisdiction such as education, law, and especially the media has a grossly materialistic focus that it projects to the populace on a continual basis. However, what the establishment does not recognize is the existence of spirit and that it works through all people. This spirit provides the truth that eventually prevails over material ignorance. The spirit that causes plant roots to seek water, flowers to follow the sun, and bees to pollinate is always at work. Adversity tends to motivate us out of our somnolence and get back in touch with the spirit and the harmonious life it produces.

We are at the threshold of great societal change. This decade will witness a return to a more natural way of life and the survival and growth of those who embrace it.

The essays I have written under A Message from Elder George address the negative conditions of Western society with an emphasis on their cause and resolution. I will continue to write such essays but at a reduced level, as expanding our outreach collectively and individually requires an increasing amount of attention. This website already contains an abundance of material addressing the adverse conditions under which we live, its cause, and the message of Men’s Action.

Sixty-six of my essays precede this one and can be reached by clicking the last title shown at the bottom of this page, and then the last title on the bottom of the page it brings you to, and so on until the last essay is reached. If you log on to google.com and search for “Elder George – men’s news daily,” you will locate an archive that holds about 125 of my blogs. These blogs together with my essays, home page information, and streaming videos contain approximately 30 hours of continuous viewing and reading for people interested in our message. Anyone logging on to our website for the first time can spend a month exploring it—an activity that I believe would be interesting and rewarding; however, I feel no compulsion to supplement these archives by adding variations to the subject matter they contain. The time has come to advance and address issues that we can control.

The implosion of Western society has accelerated and cannot be reversed. Our activity must focus on what we can do during this implosion to prepare for its aftermath. What kind of society will we establish? Will we continue with the gross materialistic thinking that has caused our present downfall or will we move on to a more natural and enlightened way of thinking? Will we work to fulfill the mission statement of Men’s Action “To foster a natural way of life for humankind?”

Will we recognize that the purpose of human existence is spiritual growth? Spirituality is the recognition that there is more to the human being that the physical body and more to life than the material world. The continuance of this growth requires the propagation and preservation of the species, humankind’s natural activity and highest calling. The natural interplay of gender called patriarchy establishes the family as the focal point of society and makes possible the propagation and preservation of humankind. Men and women are not the same—they are opposites. Our goal is not to compete with each other but to come together and become complete as we work to fulfill the purpose of human existence.

These values are contrary to Western thought, which has made a god of the material world and does not recognize the purpose of existence and the interplay of gender necessary to fulfill that purpose. Here lays our challenge—to live a more natural way of life in the midst of the collapse of a grossly materialistic society.

A portion of my future writing will describe the activities of the men and women who promote our message and recommended lifestyle. It will recognize the man who distributes fliers to his friends and acquaintances as a means of spreading our message. It will recognize those who send our message to local radio and television programs. It will recognize the man who invests in five books and distributes them to his friends and family. It will recognize the first $1,000 donation, which most likely will come from a woman. It will recognize those who promote our message to other websites, who send leads to me, who meet with others in their home to disseminate our message, and who on occasion give me moral support.

Besides this promotional activity we can also put forth effort on living our lives differently. We can change to more natural diets and also prepare more of our own food. We can practice home economics and teach it to others. We can share more of our time, talents, and treasures with others in the development of a more friendly and cohesive community. Most of all we must enlighten and empower men so that they can fulfill their responsibility to women and children by providing the environment and means that will enable women to nurture the race.

There is much to do, and I plan to write more about what needs to be done and those who do it. News of these activities will be published under Men’s Action News rather than under A Message From Elder George. In a few days I will publish an article there about the promotional internet activities of one of our supporters.

Our comatose society has begun to stir. As it awakens it will begin to seek change. Men’s Action will through its active supporters provide the message for that change.
