Excerpt from The Genius of Homeopathy by Stuart Close - good stuff to read
Ch1. Principles and Organizations:

A common mistake and one of the greatest that can be made,is that of rendering to organizations the spiritual submission that belongs in the highest degree to principles only.

Organization are formed for the purpose of maintaining and advancing principals, but it often happens that in the stress of building and maintaining the organization the principles are pushed into the background, neglected or forgotten. The man too often becomes the slave of the machine instead of its master. The organization becomes a Franenstein which destroys it's creator. Worse even than the mere neglect or forgetting, is the willful corruption and perversion of principles which is often the result of the mad struggle for organization prestige, power and position. Moreover, individuals connected with or responsible for the success of the organization are easily infected with the germ of selfish personal ambition. They come to regard their official contract with it as a through ticket on the Limited to the city of their dreams.

Of these conditions, which it is not necessary to illustrate or enlarge upon, arise some of the most serious problems of the world. Organizations - civil, military, medical, political, social, religious and educational-may and often do become corrupt, mercenary, tyrannical; a menace to lbery and progress; enemies to the principles they are supposed to represent and agents of compulsion.

The individual truth-seeker must, therefore, keep his eyes open and walk circumspectly if he would keep in the path of progress, maintain his mental integrity and preserve liberty of thought, speech and action.

It has come to pass that individual liberty is calculated only in percentages now. The increasing pressure of offical and institutional compulsion encircles us. The moral compulsion of the "Drive" is but a short remove from the physical compulsion of the "Draft." metaphorically, the internment camp, the prison, the dead wall and the firing squad are just beyond.

The world is in a state of war. It is a "War of the Worlds." The political worlds, the industrial worlds, the social world, the religious world, the medical worlds - organizations all - are torn by war because importance has been attahced to organizations that belongs only to principles.

Organizations like men are subject to disease, decay and death. When they become corrupt they die, for corruption is elementary death. Institutions, nations, whole civilizations have died, disappeared and been forgotten until brought to light by the excavations of archeologists centuries or perhaps mellenniums afterwards. But principles never die.

Principles are essential truth, represented by or corresponding to facts. The essential characteristic of truth is its steadfast conformity to law and order. Truth is Life, Mind, Spirit; absolute, infinite and immortal. Organisms in which truth embodies itself are transitory. They change, decay and pass away, but life is continous. Truth, like the fabled Phoenix, burns itself on the altar and arises from its own ashes.

I don't know when he wrote this but he was born in 1860 and died in 1929. Weird how it sounds like the things of today.

Oh boy does this sound familiar. I keep hoping that those caught up in the corporate madness will wake up one day and smell the coffee.

What facinates me was that this was written 80-90 years ago! I can barely imagine what was said 200, 500, 1000+ years ago.

Thanks for finding this and sharing it. Flower Essences are also intersting.

I have noticed that many scientists will state "It's not proven to work". Often what they mean, more accurately, is no one will give funding to see if it would work, and why would they when we're all pretty happy taking their bucks to "prove" pharmaceuticals.

INteresting was ana rticle from an Oxford or Cambridge scientist, which I cannot find, which showed that a large number of researchers were not reporting any negative findings in their work. When confronted with this, they still believed their research was 100% accurate.

I haven't gotten to the flower essences. There's just so much to study and it's a never ending process. I'm waiting for my next group of lessons.

I found this very interesting and highly relevant, so it does go to show that nothing changes.
