• The Tudors

    My children recently introduced me to Netflix and over the past weeks I have been watching The Tudors series. I only had a vague knowledge of Henry VIII and his six wives from my school history class, so I have found it interesting. However, it has also caused me to have sleepless nights.

    My energy system is very sensitive and I am unable to find any understanding for the behaviours witnessed. I am aware that it is just a tv programme but I assume that they have based this on historical facts.

    I also know that we have advanced in many , many ways, but just catching titbits of the news, with the recent tube bombing and acid attacks. Have we come far enough?

    I am unable to understand how any human being could deliberately cause another physical harm. We do not have the beheading, the hanging, drawing and quartering and boiling in oil that they carried out in Tudor times, and on many occasions without just reason, although I would argue that whatever the perception of fault there would enver be just reason to carry out those monstrous acts. But, how much have we developed?

    How different the world would be, if we recognised other beings as another part of us! Would our behaviours and thoughts towards another be the same.

    I am not religious but the command based on the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” The Mosaic law contains a parallel commandment: “Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person.” would seem to me to be a very good basis in which to live our lives.
