    1. Namaste my dear brother Prit. I have enjoyed the way you have exposed the true character of property. Property is a very good example as it represents the epitome of wealth creation.

      The EgoSelf sees wealth as the paradigm of self worth. With the creation of a global class system we find that the greatest bulk of humanity remains bereft of wealth. By extension this group of peoples see themselves personally as worthless.

      The Lord Krishna urges Arjuna to remember the physical world is illusion. Death, power and wealth truly have no substance when compared to unity and unconditional love.

      Let us learn from our infant children. A newborn child cries out in the night, he is not crying for money or material wealth, he is crying for love. Without the programming of society to interfere with his true essence he understands unequivocally the reason for his being is to give and receive love.

      The child is taught of a world of have and have not, rich and poor, educated and dense. These fundamental lies and hypocrisies learned by the child create a manufactured desire for wealth. The child becomes a man who then has little regard for anything which does not support his egoic desire for physical riches.

      Lost in the structures of global society is the desire for love. We seem to have lost the definition of love. Most people choose to allot their love with condition. Core family members come first, then friends, finally little consideration is given to the unknown masses.

      When we finally dispel the illusion of separation we will come to see all brethren deserving of the same unconditional love we give our children. However it is only by releasing this tenacious grip on the material can we understand that unconditional love is all that is real. True wealth is measured by the percent of reality one can define as self. True wealth becomes a measure of ones capacity to love.

      In conclusion the only true course of action is in giving away ones wealth. We become wealthy by giving love to others.

      In Lak' esh, my dearest brother, I gift to you the property of love without condition...
