The Proverb of The Golden Bird.

Beaten by a 2019 year old man?

What is the one thing that nobody or no thing in creation has done that Jesus Christ and the Buddha did? What is the one difference between say the Queen or superstar DJs and Jesus Christ or the Buddha?

Money.

Apart from Christ and the Buddha and perhaps Saint Francis of Assisi, no human has ever deliberately given all their money away, or deliberately pursued poverty.

Francis of Assisi.
Saint Francis of Assisi. His sanctity was based first and foremost on his deliberate pursuit of poverty.

No matter how high and advanced we get ultimately we are all beaten by an ancient and primitive 2019 year old man. How? It must be relative.

Animals are funny.

No animal has ever cared for or healed another sick or injured animal.

Some higher primates share food in exchange for something else, however, no animal in creation has ever generously given away food or energy to another animal out of kindness or charity.

“A squirrel has never given a nut to another squirrel out of generosity or charity.”

The benefits of sociality are not limited to mutual protection and cooperative behaviours such as food-sharing have been documented for some of the higher primates, including chimpanzees, bonobos and capuchin monkeys.

Grooming appears to be pivotal in holding primate coalitions together, although it is not the only social tool that has been observed. Food-sharing also plays an important role. Male chimpanzees exchange meat for support against adversaries and have also been known to raid domestic crops for items that may be traded against favours.

The Proverb of The Golden Bird.

Imagine if someone won the lottery and gave every last penny of it away. Is there reward in heaven for such an act? What this person did goes against every animal instinct. He or she goes against nature. This person is golden. Imagine if there was a bonanza of big fat juicy worms in the middle of a road, and a sparrow came along and carried every single last worm to safety from the traffic and onto the grass, instead of eating them. This bird would be magic, it would have a radiance of energy. Or imagine if a bird went around feeding the chicks of other birds, not only it’s own, this bird would be golden. The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism does exactly the same as the golden bird, because the poorer you are the more native you are. Therefore if a serial killer like Jeffrey Dahmer thought like or accepted that he was an animal, say a raccoon and gave away every last penny and possession that he owned, he might lighten his sins and be forgiven. Nativism and primitivism operate or think in the opposite or inverse direction of instincts or capitalism.

The Parable of the Rich Fool.

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”

Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

“Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

“This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

Worms.

Imagine if a lion protected lambs from a predator instead of eating them, this lion would be golden. ‪Imagine if a businessman ran a business not for profit but to keep it ticking over, for example imagine if the people who made smart phones were Buddhist or Christian monks, and did it all not for personal profit, but just to keep the company innovative and state of the art. They would be truly advanced beings. Profit is big fat juicy worms!

Wiggly worms!
Wiggly worms!

Animals are comical.

This type of thing has never happened in the animal kingdom because animals never think about it, they just go for the belly or the energy of life, that is the fats, protein and nutrients etc, without any generosity. Heh heh!

The Proverb of the Golden Bird.

Think differently to animals.

Capitalism educates people to instinctively go for as much money as possible without thinking about it. Think differently to animals. I am not saying we should be Communist, I am saying we should be more like Buddhist or Christian monks. God looks out for such beings or creatures that act this way. However, it has only happened twice in creation. If such a golden person, bird or lion does not exist we are not happy or pleased. The Buddha and Jesus Christ are that golden person, bird or lion. The Buddha and Jesus Christ both won the lottery and gave every last penny of it away. Hence, on earth and in heaven they are the https://richestmanintheuniverse.co.uk.

Golden Buddha.
Before Siddhārtha Gautama became Buddha he was the son of a king and lived a life of opulence in a palace, hidden from the miseries of the world. He then renounced his wealth and deliberately pursued poverty and practiced extreme self-mortification, almost dying of starvation in the process. Because of this Herculean sacrifice from a rich life to one of abject poverty and suffering (or reversal of divine merit), Siddhārtha Gautama then consequently attained nirvana and became the Buddha.

Matthew 19:16-24.

The Rich and the Kingdom of God.

Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

“Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”

“All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

When you read the above did you get cynical and wink at Jesus Christ?

Game.

It is a game, we natives and primitives do not go for the energy down here on Earth or in life, whether it is food, money, gold or big fat juicy worms, we seek the energy of the afterlife. We understand that God and the afterlife have absolutely zero interest in the material wealth we hoard down here on Earth or in life. We know that we cannot purchase our rank in the kingdom of heaven with gold or money.

The Proverb of the Golden Bird.

Is there reward in heaven for giving all your money away? Jesus Christ said the following:

Matthew 6:19-21.

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The Proverb of the Golden Bird.

What would you do?

Your close ones would never forgive you for giving all your money away down here on Earth, such as your family, relatives, children and friends etc. However, the hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism determines that we should never pursue money and that we should never play the lottery or fantasise about winning it.
