THE QUEEN IS OUR COMMON
The importance of lawful structures that
Sri Lankans have abandoned due to ‘rebel mentality’ surfaced by the passing
away of the queen. Rebel mentality based on the seen and the heard, promotes de facto governments . In Sri Lanka,
the political structure collapsed due to continuous rebellions which resulted
in de facto governments replacing lawfully structured common governments.
As per Hindu philosophy, all those who
pass away and are honoured by us become our holy spirit. Hence the religious ceremonies.
Those we honour become Common elders. That is the way of Spirit/Energy –
be it positive or negative. To the extent, rebel supporters honour rebel heroes
after they pass away, they would inherit rebel genes. This is on the rise in
Sri Lanka – as confirmed by the invasion
of public offices by those who desired the benefits of Protests.
I was therefore happy to
read the report ‘Sri Lanka declares day of mourning to honour Queen Elizabeth
II’ at http://www.adaderana.lk/news/84849/sri-lanka-declares-day-of-mourning-to-honour-queen-elizabeth-ii
I was happy because, the queen represented
the highest position in good government – as if she were the ancestral spirit. I
oppose those who demonstrated disrespect for the queen.
An American Tamil posed the following question
about the queen –
[Who is this woman to us ?]
response was :
is Gotabaya Rajapaksa to this group? If he is nobody why talk so much about him?
Our investment in Sri Lanka is our common interest. In Sri Lanka, we continue
to practice English law and decisions delivered by the British including
through Thesawalamai law. You seem to have separated yourself from Sri Lankans.
Hence your question, in Tamil only attitude.
An Australian Tamil overrode that and responded:
[There is a
pathetic yearning in many to be linked to the royalty in someway]
My response to this was:
queen maintained her dignity at all times. Since you do not value the dignity
of a woman, you do not appreciate the respect paid to the queen as respect for
the queen in your own environment – be it family, workplace or community around
you. This is the reason why you kept writing to me as if I were your junior.
That is the way with those who marry for pleasure and throw away the
institutional values. At the workplace, it is like working for money. At
community level, it is like working for status. You then promote de facto
structure and not reliable common structures. In this instance – those who
respect the queen would promote loyalty in marriage.
of us strengthen our belief in good government by following the laws, rules and
Due Processes of a government that we know to be reliable. The experience is
local. Completion of this local is essential in Democracy. Once completed it
becomes Energy. Energy spreads itself wherever there is need.
Queen represents autocracy which is successful as per time of practice. The
older the practice, greater the invisibility of the source. Hence they become
the ‘spirit’. At that level, the spirit is ‘common’ to all believers /heirs of
is based on visible majority believers. Hence the requirement of transparency
at outcome level – so followers can ‘see’ and follow.
problem in Sri Lanka is that we indiscriminately mix the two systems – once we
get to the top. The family rule of Rajapaksas was autocratic. By indiscriminately mixing it
with democracy, they became a messy government. Had they followed the queen and
become an invisible spirit – Sri Lanka would be as economically prosperous as Britain.
