What is on the other side?
If this world is depicted though our senses, and senses are merely deciphered electro/magnetic explosions between our nervous system and our surroundings; What realities are we missing? if we were to invert all of our senses to their exact opposite, what kind of reality would we enter? if we were to shut all of our senses off, what would we experience?
This World… this world is plagued with rules and laws, beliefs, standards, policies. If we were to erase this clutter of limitation inducing rules what world would we live in? They say chaos, however, it seems the very Rules and laws we have in place to prevent chaos are what instigate chaos. I believe Humans are a species that like to be free both physically and mentally. Any effort to restrain that freedom has always been met with Blood, either with rebellion of the people, or merciless attacks from the Governments towards the People to contain/ prevent rebellion . .. now.. If Humanity, were to restore its physical, mental, emotional self to neutral, what kind of animal would we be? What direction will we steer to without distractions and socio economical/ political noise?
I believe the problem with this World is that everyone wants for themselves without the will to give up a luxury or convenience that will allow the desire of another group to exist in Harmony with the rest.
.. And with that comes resistance.
The fight is not between the Rich and Poor, Governments and Rebels, Christians and Muslims, Blacks or Whites etc.. it boils down to the selfish individual, who bands with other selfish individuals for the same cause. The mission between every group differs, both want to take, none want to give. The group with the most resources has the most Power and power wins.
The powerful feel entitled to control and exploit the weak, rather than use theyre unlimited resources to help the organization as a whole become a singular, perfect organism, they keep the weak down, hurt them, take advantage of them. “That is where they belong” they say. We must understand that this “Weakness” I speak of is not physical weakness, it isn’t emotional. The weakness I speak of is purely ideological. It holds no validity in the natural world. We dub people, without financial affluence as ‘weak’ and ‘lower’. We feel ‘above’ those who have not the amount of resources we have. The “weak” are getting tired of this system, this system that favors the Rich and scolds the poor, especially those who are poor of no fault of their own. Born into poverty, into a system designed to hold you there through inflation rates, interest rates overdraft fees (you’ll owe them money for not having money!) In essence, this system doesn’t make sense. As a species, that we created this system, accept this system as true and continue to utilize this system is insane and against our natural instinct to protect our own and flourish as an Organism. However, what the Powerful fail to realize is that power eventually favors the weak, as the weak eventually abhor their weakness and strive to be strong. Add in the pressure given from the Powerful, to either adapt or die, the weaker organism has no choice but to find the soft spot of the powerful and exploit it or cease to exist. Eventually you have a power struggle between those who are fighting for their existence, and those fighting for fear of losing their Power.. Life always wins.. There is a moment of Peace, and the cycle begins once again.
In reality, in true, cosmic perspective, this Power struggle is laughable. It’s pointless, makes no sense in the grand scheme of things. Humanity is an Organism that fights its Environment, and even fights itself. Rare are the viruses that attack their own.
This world, and it’s system is corroded, dirty, clogged. It seems Humans can’t keep anything clean and stable even if we tried, because at the end, what eventually matters most, is ourselves, at an individual, personal level. Our own survival. Could this be because we are the only species aware of its own individual existence? We customize ourselves via thoughts and personalities and beliefs and values, dress codes, friendships, music ideologies. This ‘Self-customization” as I call it creates an ego, and the Ego, this custom emotional defense wall is created to protect our mental creations to the death. We eventually favor our mental inclinations more than our physical life. This is how people are able to ‘die for what they believe in’.
Ego’s are dangerous. Ego’s are self-serving. Ego’s will kill you. they are a mental parasite created through emotional attachments with things, intangible things. Things that hold no worth in the physical world, but that eventually effects and molds our physical world. They eventually separate from the person in an abstract way. When someone gets so wrapped up in their ego, in their beliefs, in their perspective in their personality, anyone with a different viewpoint, or physical attribute, hell, anyone or anything DIFFERENT than us.. sets off a defense mechanism and eventual hostility. Violence. Hatred.
it makes us ‘Anti-species’. It makes us go against our very own kind, to fight each other, and at times, to the Death. For what? an intangible ideology, most likely created through Social expectations (intangible), or even outright imagination (also intangible).
Many animals do the very same thing, however, these Animals also don’t have the capacity of Reason and Introspective thought we have. we do, and we continue to hold each other back, kill each other, and what convinces or plagues us to do this? Ego.
The Ego eventually becomes it’s own entity within your mind in a way, a spiritual parasite. It can actually begin to hurt you physically if you go against it yourself.
Don’t believe me? Try this.
If you are an egotistical person, you probably are: A) mostly Negative B) easily Defensive/ Irritable C) In love with yourself, not in a good way (Narcissistic) D) Your beliefs are the only ones that are “true” or “valid” E) You’re denying that you are any of these things.
For the benefit of the doubt, for those reading that aren’t run by their Ego, good for you. Stay Neutral my friends, you are VERY rare.
Everyone else.. try this..
Its very simple. Just go against your own thoughts, turn them into positive ones .. ALL DAY LONG.. That’s it. cross a homeless man? Dont think of him as disgusting, think of him as a person paying for bad choices, or down on his luck that can and WILL get himself out of it and become a productive human being in the future. .you get the picture. Not only say these things in your head ALL DAY, for EVERY thought, but truly BELIEVE what you are saying… Think of every Human being as a distant cousin, that you care for, as this is not far from the Truth.
By 3pm none of you are going to have any energy left, and you are all going to have headaches and feel ill to the stomach. You are killing the ‘parasite’.
Read Ekhart Tolles “The Power of NOW” for a more detailed view into the Ego, how to identify and eventually defeat it. I read it when I was 18, and set me off into the spiritual path I am now.
The Ego is real. It is the plague that swarms the Human inside of us and allows us to commit the terrible atrocities we have been capable of.
Children show us that Humanity is Love, they are Love, because they are pure Human, because they haven’t yet created and have been taken over by their Ego. If you know a kid, have a kid, watch and observe the creation of the Ego as you watch them grow up, and guide them from that dark path. Lets begin to break the chains of Evil through changing ourselves and our Children by showing Understanding, Compassion, and Love. I’m keeping a spiritual eye out for my 7 year old Sister, I want to help her build emotional and mental defenses based on Love not on Fear.
In order to change the world we need to go from ‘Service to Self’ to ‘Service to Others’.
Or continue to watch our Planet, and our Species, dwindle away into eventually becoming merely another chapter in the Endless book of Time.
