About fruitive labor, unemployment and The Order


One of the fundamental problems of cultivated man is the fruitive act: from the apple of Adam and Eve to the stockmarket and the creative modern artist: taking profit be it materially or intellectually might lead to hell. Changing our ways leads to conservative forces: we must maintain and stop the creative act. We are too much of a 'shit'culture (the 'creative' ego) and not enough of a culture of respect (remembrance and soul).

The Order is not that simplistic though. It is important to restrict the creative by offering the fruits of labor to The Order as The Order would settle against the lust of fruitive action by means of timeschedules and a discipline according to the eternal values (../../images/theorder/images/values.jpg): on chakra days and regular sundays and saturdays we do not work or develop fruitive activities, but instead socialize and preferably deny secondary media of keeping distance. It is true that this policy necessitates a redefinition of the concept of work (read fruitive labor). The Indan concept of karma might apply better. One should not forget that the word unemployment is a political invention: there is no mention of it in the holy criptures. In vedic literature there is an alied term 'akarma' that could be translated with unemployment, but the guru's assure us that this is wrong: akarma means to serve the spirit of goodness, God and the eternal values of human civilization. Fruitive labor they indeed defy as something that has to be given up. The thing is that these same guru's are not so explicit as to when this fruitive activity of making it should be given up (thus creating their pupils): is it for once and for all or is it just for the holy days of resting with the calendar? Isn't religion after all nothing but a demand for spreading our holidays and daily hours for work in such a fashion that it is impossible to get overstressed and thus unholy? It might just be so (on the premisse of our goodness).
