Thoughts may, like diaphanous veils, blur our visions of truths innate. And in this way revelation becomes a distant possibility, for our beliefs are the perpetuate r of lies that for the sake of security keep us blinded to our own potential. Collectively we build arguments to keep truths at bay so we can follow the course of our stable paths without interference and the complexity of change. Fear is the root of all our negative decisions and stagnancy, and without addressing it we risk a life of mundane expectation and emotional routine.
The world is a mire of displacement and thoughts addressing the unimportant, while false gods and ideals drive us to destroy all good and uphold the primordial aspects of our beginnings, our innate struggle with survival that now has no real meaning. We forge philosophies that render us pawns to their supposed value, and in their interpretation we, in righteous assuredness, become the beasts of our long gone ancestors. We create religions that relinquish our responsibility to deities, rather than accept life and our sentient roll within it. What we create in ideals are more often about selfishness than ascension in thought and spirit, and we corrupt them as a result.
Each system of government, of society, fails because we are basically imperfect, and regardless of philosophy there will always be a corrupt soul, who given power, will assert a personal agenda rather than work for the common good. So society evolves, changes, yet ultimately nothing changes because the same result cannot be avoided. Commercialism or communism, it doesn’t matter for these ideals are fraught with the same mark of humanity and are destined to fail. The more power any individual has, the more corrupt the outcome, not because of the individual, but because of the system itself, the lines and alliances forged to attain power.
Individually, we have an endless potential, yet most people will accept a mundane narcissistic life based on attainment and physical betterment: the lie of happiness. Rather than embrace the ideals of love, compassion, kindness and sharing, we have evolved to become competitive to the point of isolation and segregation. Difference and intolerance have become the weapons of our struggle to be better off than anyone else, and this plays out in every thought and action we complete. Collateral damage is a concept we have all come to accept, no matter the consequence, death becoming a common and unemotional disconnect; someone else’s problem.
Spiritually we have fallen for the words themselves rather than the intention, following prophets rather than their words of truth, holding on to insecurities that are innate in human thought and wanting someone of higher being to alleviate our own created misery. In doing so we fall to the man-made beliefs created initially to have control over the masses, religions and beliefs written as a power in itself. We have become the pawns of our own making, shifting our fears and placating all that we should be learning, not keeping at distance.
Lost we have become in our own thoughts and actions, our own struggle to find meaning and purpose in life. The irony is that here we are on this physical plane of existence, yet it is our spirit, our innate knowing and essence that can save us from ourselves. The truth may hurt, its stark and brutal reality opposed to what we want in our delusions of grandeur, yet without us facing ourselves, we can never be truly happy, be truly in acceptance of the beauty of what life can be.
