We live in a reductionist society. We are reliant on the few for everything we do and have. Our jobs, our income, our media, our entertainment, our religion and spirituality, everything is very carefully controlled.
We are encouraged to look outside, to aspire to external beauty, good jobs, good houses, money and these are all held like carrots for a stupid donkey. Even our religion is politically controlled and run. Our elections are like turkeys voting for Christmas.
We are never encouraged to look inside and explore the bigger inner universe, to challenge every bit of information that is fed to us. Thinking for yourself is only encouraged as long as it conforms what the top echelons want. When we REALLy start to fundamentally challenge the structure of society we are classed as fools and conspiracy theorists.
Yet we are an integral part of our universe, we can be educated to communicate and harmonise with it as opposed to attempting the impossible task of ‘conquering’ it – not realising that when we do it will bring our own demise. We are like lemmings running toward the edge of the cliff.
Looking inwards is the key. Developing critical thinking, emotional intelligence and the lost arts of wordless language, intuition and empathy are the answer. We cannot change the top echelon of our hierarchical structure and their dictatorial ways without changing the will the people and we cannot do that by pressurising and bullying them, revolution will only change the bullies.
The journey inwards is the answer, stillness and introspection are self education and cannot be stopped. If you want to change the world this is the way. When every person is able to think for themselves, find that necessary empathy and intuition, the world will change itself.
No more greed, hate, violence and anger because weakness, fear, distraction and apathy will be gone and challenged every time it appears.
