In sum, money, power, and status are mutually exclusive of knowledge, art, and spirituality, for a few reasons. For one, money, power, and status are transient in nature, whereas knowledge, art, and spirituality are eternal in nature. By logic, something which is transient on one hand and something which is eternal on the other hand would not be able to mix. Simply put, money, power, and status do not mix with knowledge, art, and spirituality, as oil and vinegar do not mix with one another. Also, knowledge, art, and spirituality build and develop the soul, and the soul is then carried over to eternity, whereas money, power, and status go into decline and eventually enter into demise due to their transient nature.
At the moment, no one better manifests and sheds light on the transient nature of money, power, and status than Boris Johnson. Although the prevailing notion is that Boris Johnson is a cat with nine lives who can survive any calamity, the reality is perhaps that Boris Johnson’s decline and demise is a slow-moving one. It began with an outcry amongst the public and certain elements of his own party over his behavior during the course of the coronavirus pandemic as well as other instances. And today, it rose to another level with the resignation of Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid. There is no reason to doubt that there will be yet another stage to Boris Johnson’s decline and eventual demise, although when that stage will occur is not clear as of yet.
Nevertheless, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid’s resignation is a punch in the gut for Boris Johnson, because the Desi vote in England and the United Kingdom in general is quite important. Regardless of their political affiliation over these years, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid are individuals who are undoubtedly looked up to in their respective communities, and as a result, they bring clout and votes to their party. By removing their clout and thus their votes which are derived from the esteem with which they are held in their respective communities, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid are making the shaky political ground which Boris Johnson currently stands on even shakier.
As mentioned before, what follows this particular stage of Boris Johnson’s decline and demise is not clear as of yet. Moreover, this sort of event and occurrence perhaps has a silver lining for groups such as ‘Labour’ and the ‘Liberal Democrats’ who are a legitimate alternative to the circus of Boris Johnson as well as monsters like Priti Patel and Liz Truss who are with Boris Johnson. I must note that I am not an expert in British politics. I do have friends who are experts in British politics. However, one need not be an expert in British politics to have a sense of where things stand and where things are headed.
Certain folks want instant gratification and for things to happen fast, so that their assertions or suggestion are proven true. But the fact of the matter is, some things are slow-moving and they take time to develop and occur. My dislike for Boris Johnson and his mentality was something I conveyed a long time ago. And now, it seems as though my personal sentiments have permeated into other hearts and minds as well.
