A lot has happened in the last couple of months and that's my excuse for not writing a new post here on our blog.
2016 came and went way too fast. During the year we achieved some of our goals and missed others by a wide mark. One thing for sure the World is changing fast and I see new hope and new fears in equal measure wherever I look. We are moving into what I believe a defining era in our human evolution. Not only is the political and cultural landscape shifting, I also see a positive awakening among the population concerning the environment, health, and respect for life. It might not be apparent at first glance, especially if your info is coming out of the flat screen 'Weapon of Mass Deception' that's sat facing you on your wall.
As a species, we have huge challenges to work through and the price of failure is not worth thinking about. If our species destroys itself because of ignorance, dogma and fear then I guess that'll be our fate. One thing for sure the planet will not mourn us and any trace of us will soon be erased by mother nature and life will go on.
However, I don't believe this is necessary or our destiny. The definition of insanity is repeating the same actions over and over and expecting different results. This is what our species has been doing forever, like a hamster on a wheel.
Our internal and external environment is being challenged with new conditions, forces, and ideas. If we can't learn to adapt to these changes we are doomed. These are the tides of evolutionary change that are confronting our species, adapt or die are our only options.
The most terrifying challenge most people have is confronting change, whether at home in the personal life, political and social ideas or even (I had to get it in) dietary changes. Dealing with these new situations with fear and anger, can and will only lead to fear and anger from the very thing you are fighting against. This is a no-win situation that only leads to conflict, distraction and oppression.
In today's World for the first time humanity has access to a global communications network. We've evolved to the point where we can instantaneously share ideas with anyone, anywhere on the planet. This ability to share ideas has given us an evolutionary edge over the rest of the animals on this planet and allowed us to eventually develop advanced technology. It's all very new to us still, and we are making big mistakes in finding the best use for our ideas. Our species has just learned to stand up without falling over and we also have a choice to stop shitting ourselves and leaving it for our parents (church, state etc) to clean up. It's time, we all, every one of us starts taking responsibility for our own little piece of the planet.
Leave as little or no waste, recycle, replenish our local environments, encourage wildlife with wild places, cherish all life as a family, help and serve the people we love and have open minds and hearts to people less nourished, educated and treat people the way we all would like to be treated. I'm positive we are all born into this world with these universal ethics and morals inside us, part of the human experience. We recognise them in religion (any flavour) because we identify with the words written down as speaking to our own morals and truths already inside us all. We're all the same species trying to make the best of this life while we drift through the cosmos on a grain of wet sand.
We all have the power to make significant changes for the better.
If you don't like the power of the big corporations then do some research and stop purchasing their products and services or blindly voting for the politicians that are bought and paid for by the corps you hate.
If you hate to see the disgraceful abuse of your surrounding countryside, covered in litter and being polluted, start taking a litter bag out with you and pick the mess up.
If you don't like your current health, start researching what you can do to improve your quality of life, change your diet, get some exercise, stop relying on your doctors and their prescription pads.
Make your voice heard, be honest with your opinions and ideas and share them.
Sign petitions, they work and you can play a part in positive change to end the exploitation of the people, animals, and the planet. You say nothing and just moan then you are part of the problem.
I could go on and on, but what I'm getting at is when you realise that your reality can be changed into whatever you want it to be, you have the power and choice, then positive things can and will happen.
We've all become lazy with our responsibilities and choices, "it'll do, somebody else will take care of that" or the most common attitude "I can't be bothered and it's too complicated". Well tough!!! Our society and the planet is sliding towards a very bad future. We've for too long given control of ourselves to people who don't care about us, they don't even know we exist, we are just stock and crops to be used, manipulated and profited from. We gave that power away when we gave our own personal sovereignty away, something we are born with.
To use the cliche, 'be the change you want to see'. You're not alone, trust me. Most importantly don't let ego rule your decisions and choices. Change can be very positive if you choose it to be. But often it takes integrity to stand up and admit 'I was wrong'. Seek the truth in all things, question everything. My late father used to say to me "John there are no coincidences", he was right and I just didn't realise it at the time because of my ego, sorry dad.
When you come to the realisation that what we think of as our own free will is actually being manipulated and coerced because of our own ignorance things become simple. We can make that ignorance go away and gain more control of our lives and situations. Knowledge is power (LOL another cliche) but it's true. If you hear a story that makes you angry or even feel hate, research it from all sides and sources. You may be right from the outset and your research will only confirm your fears. If this is the case act and do something, no matter how small (petition, engage conversation, and sharing of info). But please be informed and don't just spout views that often ignite a bad situation further.
Intolerance, ignorance, and hate is dividing our species and threatening everything. We could have a future unfolding with a destroyed environment, decimated natural world, political or religious oppression like we've never imagined before, as the norm. Or we can all take a deep breath and step back from the brink, shed the medieval thinking of government and church, after all, they don't seem to know what the hell they are doing and have made a bloody mess of things so far. Breath and look around you.
Our leaders, kill, destroy and oppress every which way they turn. At the same time, they beg us to help with charity and taxes and to go to war to fix the very problems they cause. There is never enough money to fix human suffering but always a blank cheque for human misery, hmmmm. This happens in plain sight, nothing hidden. We need hospitals, housing, food, education and sanitation for all. How about a government that encourages the scientific communities of the world to come together and solve our burdening energy crisis. Don't hold your breath, cause that is not going to happen anytime soon. We've had clean energy technology for a long time but it has always been suppressed and hidden from us. Do you really think we still need to be burning fossil fuels? We are being lied too BIG TIME.
Money is created out of nothing, literally (Money Explained) but never it seems for the good of humanity. While we ignorantly imagine that our spiritual and political leaders are working hard for a better future, all the time they laugh and judge us from palaces, cathedrals, and mansions. They are all guilty of spreading fear and hate which is the very fuel we supply back to them to justify their evil acts. We the people are the ones that beg for war and atrocities against our fellow man, all because we believe the bullshit and propaganda we've been fed and it terrifies us. For a historical example, strap in and watch: Vietnam - How we get manipulated into War or Project For The New American Century
Politics and religion have one thing in common.....it's just business based on lies, fear, and manipulation, simple. They create prison bars for the human mind. The resources available from these institutions could fix poverty, malnutrition, and inequality Worldwide within a generation. This isn't and never will be the plan. They are very happy with the current world view. Scared, ignorant consumers, just as designed. For a great insight into the agenda and plan that's been in motion for a long time, make a cup of tea and be enlightened by this documentary by Adam Curtis The Century of the Self
Starting at home with family and friends start living and eating better. Become less reliant on the big food and pharmaceutical corporations. The cleaner you diet the better you critically thinking and overall health will be and the less easily you'll be manipulated by the media and propaganda. Nutrition & Brain Health
When you feel the emotions of anger, fear or isolation. Research the underlying causes and problems that have triggered these emotions, you'll often find it's not what you originally perceived.
If we have to evolve in this political and environmental landscape get educated. No, I don't mean go to school again, I mean use the technology around us to inform yourselves. But please dig deep and don't just go to the massive, corporate media websites, the very originators of fake news...ha ha you couldn't write it!
Demand a better and fairer election system. Democracy is not what we have been given no matter how they polish and wrap it up.
LEARN HISTORY. Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.
Be brave, be heard, support campaigns and sign petitions. You are not powerless, stop being part of the flock of sheeple, it's time to evolve.
Cherish and wonder at all life, open your eyes. Cause no pain or suffering and help others. Share your excess if you have any, be it food, shelter or happiness. Be good, always.
Teach all children without the bias of church and state that only the fools don't ask questions.
We must always seek the truth with evidence and not be lead by simple hope, laziness or faith.
The reality we face is the reality we can create, our choice
Ahhhh, much better, New Year's rant over. Time for a plant based lunch, a walk in the crisp, fresh, January air. Maybe hug a tree or talk to a bird (I know you don't believe me LOL). But most of all step forward into a bright future with optimism, love and light. It's great to be alive so come on 2017 let's have it! 😀
Happy New Year everyone Jxx
