If I post that I made an awesome batch of muffins, I’d get heaps of buy in.
If I post that there is a famine in Sudan then the page goes quiet.
Is that because people can’t relate to people starving to death (because of war and climate issues etc)?
We are all one people who live in an integrated living system, and we all share a consciousness – like we are each one drop in the ocean of consciousness – and so if people are starving how does it relate to us?
Perhaps in our neck of the woods we can oppose war – stop supporting overseas quarrels; insist government addresses climate change; and personally we can give to charity.
But for heavens sake- we can’t do nothing
The more stark naked the truth becomes that one posts of the truth of reality in how humanity and its psyche is manifesting destruction of this world, the effect on people becomes far more noticeable, cognitive dissonance kicks in, the political and legally minded attack and disparage, find excuses, new ageyness carries many off to la la land, others withdraw resigned to, and mentally and physically humiliated by, the seemingly overwhelming grip that man made evil has on this planet not being aware that the solution for them really does lay within each and every one of them. What affects one affects all.
Since Lisa mentioned “heavens’ sake” let’s delve a little in to that idea as well.
I speak not of the ugly impossible way that maindream religions say spiritual writings must be interpreted and acted upon, nor the new age cultivate the ego imagination stuff, we’ve had enough of that crap, 2000 odd years as is rumoured and the world and humanity has come to what we are now fed up witnesses to, enough proof to doubt that those interpretations and all the others are the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
To be the impartial observer one must disavow what one thinks one knows and start with a clean slate, build from there, question every assumption.
By questioning everything one will eventually establish a comprehension that the bible contains the truth where liars had it written with the intent of deliberately concealing the truth in such a manner that due to the workings of the human psyche, human conditioning, most would be misled by way of that conditioning and their own ignorance of language.
It was written knowing people would either accept, fear and obey and not likely find the truth or reject it partially or entirely and not likely find the truth.
