THE FOG – Out with the Old
Today the economic, political and corporate elite have forgotten the community as a whole. They have forgotten that society provides everything which enables them to be successful. Consequently the elites treat the citizenry as indentured servants. People are no longer valued as co-creators and are treated as disposable. What I have just described is the growing slavery of a seductive free market society through the genius of social engineering. This is thought reform at its finest. We are instructed what to buy, where to put our efforts, and what kind of education we should pursue to better serve global elitism. And we buy it all hook line and sinker. If you want to explore what I mean then just put away your cell phone for a day and see if you have any skills that are in harmony with Mother Nature.
There was a time before the invention of mirrors that the only way to see one’s reflection was to look into a still pool of water or a polished stone. At that time the only face you could see clearly was that of another. People could see the face of everyone else, but not their own. Then once mirrors were invented we could finally gaze on a clear image of ourselves. Likewise the only people who have ever seen the earth from a distance are astronauts. As they circle the planet in their spacecraft they have a clear view of earth. For the rest of us we have not had the opportunity to view our planet from a distance. As a result astronauts seem to have a deeper appreciation of an earth without borders.
Similarly it could be said that the rest of us lack the ability to see a true image of the entire family of sentient life. Much like our ancestors who had no vision of their own face we still lack the vision and insight to see how the earth looks and how we are all connected. For if we truly felt this connection we would hopefully stop participating in terrorism, wars, oppression and a united nations of imaginary borders and flags. Surely we all have seen pictures of the earth but this is simply looking into the pool and not perceiving earth’s true beauty. So until we can all visit the space station, how can we develop a true and accurate vision of planet earth? How can we truly learn to love our neighbor across man-made borders and division?
Well the answer may not be to become an astronaut but to become a psychonaut. To look at the rich universe within ourselves to see the beauty of a rich interior cosmos of the soul. The earth is a beautiful place but it to will someday die. Someday the sun will burn out or an asteroid will collide with the planet or maybe we ourselves will end life by starting WW III. The point is we do have some choice in our collective futures if we can adapt to a new religion and culture based on communion with the natural order. The world does not have to develop a new world order. It only has to return to a natural order which has always been with us but not appreciated.
Humans are part of nature. Not a commodity for the elites to use like chattel. The difference between a monetary based society and a resource based society is that the former fuels greed, anger and ignorance through competition. Whereas the later empowers sharing, peace, and wisdom through cooperation. Today we desperately need change. Will democracies survive the self-interest of greed? Can governments led by the ignorant patrons of greed really facilitate the kind of change needed for Mother Earth to survive the rise of an oligarchic swine? So what are we to do? Let us listen briefly to the stoic philosopher Epictetus when he says:
“Don’t be more cowardly than a young child, but just as children say, I won’t play any longer when the game no longer amuses them, you should say likewise, when things seem that way to you, I don’t want play any longer”.
Friends, it is time to say we are tired of the game that elitism has handed us. We are tired of the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing appearing as democracy when in truth it has degenerated into the patronizing platitudes of the rich and powerful. We must stop playing the game and deny ourselves the trinkets of poor health care, poor education, the minimum wage of poverty, and demand a basic income which will create equality for all. If the elites are afraid of equality then we the people must demand it. For when those sworn to protect us are not doing their job then the community has not only the right but the duty to stand up and revolt against its oppressors. If you are tired of playing the game then stop playing. Say no to political charlatans, say no to corporate hucksters, say no to bureaucratic go boys and most of all say no to perverted cultural and religious superstition and magical thinking orchestrated by self-proclaimed gurus who discourage independent free thought. The goal of any political or corporate institution which does not value the input of Mother Nature is to simply continue the status quo of ignorance, greed and violence.
Higher Purpose and Magical Thinking
Magical thinking is defined as believing that one event happens as a result of another without a plausible link of causation. For example: “I got up on the wrong side of the bed so today will be a disaster”.
Believing that everything happens for a reason, can be reassuring but it can also lead spiritual people to wonder why God wants them to suffer. The alternative to this type of reason is randomness. It can actually be of more comfort to know that much of what we experience is really no one’s fault which can be much more empowering.
When we let go of magical thinking the risk is the world will become more real. The belief that there is no father figure in charge of the world can prompt society to become more rational and less neurotic. Just imagine if we stop giving super powers to politicians, governments, corporations and religious institutions. We would probably all be less in “awe” of charming and charismatic personalities. We would wake up to the fact that just because an individual won an election does not all of a sudden make them an expert on everything. It would wake us up to the notion that the elites may know what is best for them but not necessarily what is best for the rest of us. And in the business of religion we would finally wake up to the truth that receiving a prayer cloth from these charismatic characters is just another blond haired blue eyed con.
Those of us who actually wake up to the basic principles of truth will learn what science actually knows about the true nature of reality. This is the interesting world of discovery and wisdom that awaits us.
The Six P’s
There was a time when the Six P’s meant, proper planning prevents piss poor performance. This old adage is still true. However today the Six P’s can also mean; people, politics, power, and profit, stimulate planetary poverty.
We the sheeple, must break free of guru’s cults and corporations and return to the source of a liberated free thinking society.
We the sheeple, must break free from the deceptions of political con-artist
We the sheeple, must break free from the corruption of the power elites.
We the sheeple, must break free of the greed of elitist
We the people, must appose planetary propagandas which are killing Mother Earth
We the people, must ensure that all life share’s in the fair distribution of wealth in all its bounty.
Humanity has now come to a great evolutionary tipping point. We have come to a point when we must call forth the wisdom and power of truth. We all stand on the shoulders of greatness which teaches how the human struggle can balance both virtue and vice. Those who embrace the struggle will progress in gnosis and will be doing their part to make the world a better place. Today the road is clear. We are all in the midst of a climate crisis! It is therefore time to travel this road less travelled. It is the only way to avoid condemning our children to climate catastrophe!
The Gospel of Gnosis
“When you break bread, do so not in my memory, but rather to remember what I came to teach the world. The Creator’s hand is on the chosen. Therefore strive first to be good and all else will follow. Go to the places where goodness lives. Then go to those other places and goodness will follow.’
