Is the Freddie Gray Baltimore Death the End to Police Brutality
Author: Greg Tharpe
Freddie Gray, another black male unjustifiable killed by police officers, igniting rioting, looting, burning, destroying, the saga continues. People killing people, injustice, crime, violence, drugs, joblessness, hopelessness, anger, rage and the beat goes on. As the Temptations sang in their song “Ball of Confusion, that’s what the world is today ….” When is the foolishness going to stop? Is there a solution?
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” [Matthew 11:12]
Realize that the death of Freddie Gray and the turbulence in Baltimore is not the end of the craziness, there will be more and more until evolved government leaders are elected in office. All of this social unrest, crime, violence and injustice going on are signs of the times. Meaning, it is time to put an end to the spiritual ignorance that is destroying the world. It is spiritual ignorance that causes police to use unnecessary brutality when making arrest. It is spiritual ignorance that is motivating young men and women to not have hope and faith in the pursuit of a positive prosperous law abiding life. It is spiritual ignorance that causes racism. It is spiritual ignorance for government to ignore the need to reform the education system.
As I stated in a previous article, (see Ferguson Missouri) all of this craziness and foolishness going on in the world are symptoms and not the root problem. Police brutality, poverty, drugs and gang violence in inner city are not the problem. Although, we mistakenly label this as problems, it is actually the byproduct of the root problem and as long as we misdiagnose and do not treat them they are not going away. For example, if you have a runny nose and treat it by buying a box of tissue to solve it, you are going to find out that the runny nose is going to only stop for a minute, but continue to come back until you treat the root cause of the problem instead of the symptom.
Maybe there is an underlying conspiracy by the government to ignore the root problem. Or maybe they are looking at the fact of how much money will be taking out of the economy if there was no crime. I guess they look at the fact that crime is good as long as it creates jobs and helps the economy. As I have stated in a previous article, the education system and its curriculum was not created based on the love of people, it was created based on the love of money by the people who created it.
Much of everything that is happening in the world or in one’s life is the byproduct of what has been supplanted in the hearts and minds of the individuals. Therefore, the craziness that is going on is the result of an inadequate education system and media feeding people negativity. The bottom line is if the education system is not based on transformation, meaning spirituality, love, faith, wisdom, unity, cooperation, happiness and holistic success for all, there is going to be a lot of negativity in the world and Baltimore is where it has escalated to here in America. On a larger scale, America is not the only country suffering the repercussions of an inadequate education system.
The root cause is lack of education, particularly spiritual transformational education, where the students learn about the spiritual and mental components that causes success and failure in each part of one’s life. When the student is educated properly in accordance with their strengths natural talents and gifts they intuitively know that a life of happiness and success is inevitable. Therefore, their renewed confidence or faith lifts their spirit to illicit assistance from their personal higher power or deity; whatever name they choose to call it (God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Angel, Saint etc). Now they understand the truth of their purpose and role in life and how and where they fit in.
Therefore, God is the solution. However, what I mean by God is not from the perspective of the man who created the world and sends people to hell for sinning as believed by many. What I mean is that education about the truth of the God or spiritual powers in you will heal people and eradicate the ignorance that is going on in the world. When you know the truth about your mind and it is connected to God to help you manifest joy and happiness in every area of your life (emotionally, physically and financially), it liberates and empowers you to have faith in seeking the very best life for yourself. Furthermore, it inspires you to share your wisdom and resources to assist others with the faith to achieve their very best life.
The solution to life challenges always begins with change. First the leaders have to change. The majority of the political, religious and social leaders are not enlightened enough to understand spirituality and the root cause of the problem. Therefore, the leaders have to change or we have to get more evolved leaders. Then we can reform the education system to provide the students with the knowledge and mindset that is more aligned with helping them reach their full human/spiritual potential. Currently, the system is more ego based and based on left brain intellectual thinking rather than developing both right and left brain thinking where they depend more on their intuition for answers and solutions.
Everyone cannot be taught to be a doctor or lawyer or engineer or scientist, however everyone can be taught to love their fellow man and to treat everyone equally with respect and dignity in honor of the spirit of God in them. Furthermore, everyone can be educated on how to find their purpose and calling and be successful in what they are good at and like. Everyone has the power in them to thrive and flourish in life, it just has to be realized nourished and cultivated.
Only hurt people hurt other people. The desire to hurt people is a sign that they need healing and once healed they no longer have the propensity to hurt others. When the mind is properly educated based on the dynamics of love, you do not have hate, jealousy, greed, fears or selfishness in your heart and you are not out to hurt anyone. Therefore, when the government put God or spirituality in the education system the police brutality, killing and rioting will eventually cease and the world will be a better place as the results of it.
