BODHICITTA NURTURES OUR SENSE OF AGENCY
Well one wonders who the tribe are really in an affluent first world country on October 14th 2023 just over 60% of voting age Australian citizens voted NO, to First Nation people having their VOICE AND NEEDS being heard, within in the current framework of colonial rule in Australia.
It could be said that what occurred on October 14th 2023 at the voting booths across Australia is an absolute disgrace and represents deep seeded apathy ignorance a lack of compassion and pure entitlement , that is so painful a week of silence has been asked for by first Nation People to absorb and process this shocking situation .. Research ya self deaths in custody, child mortality and the appalling situation of first nation children in custody under 12.. The injustice is endless and it could appear has been made complicit and endorsed by the NO voters..
ULURU STATEMENT 23 DISCUSSED EVALUATED DISMISSED ON OCTOBER 14TH 2023 IN AUSTRALIA
I compel all readers to read the site above get acquainted with genuine human rights and why it MATTERS for us ALL
ASKING AN ETHICAL GENUINE QUESTION
It could be said that the nuances of this is very complicated yet we must ask, the question,’ is equality so hard to comprehend? Many things were part of the lack of clarity. It could be said a poor response by the Federal government, in framing a more appropriate question FOR THE REFERENDUM may well have been helpful… Many things have contributed to this alarming and deeply painful outcome, these include poor communication it could appear a very entitled uninformed voting public etc..
These are just the immediate extraordinary concerns that contributed to and sabotaged the process of the ULURU statement not being endorsed or validated. There so many fundamental issues that need to be addressed, so many layers I will name but a few. Who has a voice and who does not is a key cornerstone of this grueling, and unjust outcome. Issues that are layered in conscious bias essentially, that are absolutely confronting yet so simple to rectify if people valued the other as self…. An overstatement maybe yet loving the other as self is a real thing if one is paying attention.
Australia and so many countries who have colonized controlled corrupted and had a genocidal approach to their take over bids.. This all needs to BE readdressed it is imperative we rethink what democracy actually is in the third decade of the women’s century. As an aside research ya self this issue which places women in the center of the issue of HUMAN RIGHTS..
VALUING EQUALITY FOR ALL COULD WELL BE A BETTER CHOICE QUESTION
As we know mostly it is NOT who asked the question, it is what QUESTION WAS ASKED . AS WE ALL KNOW “YES OR NO” IS IN FACT A CLOSED QUESTION . Hmm MAN MADE LANGUAGE YET AGAIN
There is a massive difference between having a vote that was ‘granted in 1967 to first NATION PEOPLE to actually being heard and listened to in a patriarchal framework of that covers two centuries of Australian government, It is blatantly unjust as we move forward in the third decade of the women’s century.. https://aiatsis.gov.au/explore/1967-referendum
GENUINE VOICES TRUE RESPECT
The ULURU website above was created and discussed with government to honor that fundamental need of creating a genuine voice that includes compassion kindness .respect and validation of the oldest culture in the world. The injustice is massive it has been 250 years of struggle to be heard and understood, given a true Voice that is honored, respected, truly validated.
The years of work for this to be achieved is still an achievable process and must be done NOW! Australians must step up and act on i this situation immediately .. A current vision that we must HONOR for generations not yet born as we ‘not arrived yet.” Colonialism is the past and NO LONGER acceptable viable behavior in a country that calls itself ‘the lucky country.”
A FINAL MANTRA TO LIVE AND LOVE BY THAT I WROTE MANY YEARS AGO
All we have come to do in the world is speak from the heart
Love who we are and love what we can become , to speak with integrity
act from compassion to love fully…. All we have come to do in the world is
honor the other as self to live and share that truth .
To honor and love, the other as we Choose to be loved and honored .
With only belief faith and true heart felt love for us ALL
Don’t ask what choice equity and love have done for one ask what ones is doing with choice equity and love of the other as ONE
