Can you please explain where the conspiracy is ?
As acknowledged above, feelings are very important. This might be obvious to those people already aware of this, however for me it came as something
of a revelation. I was very 'retarded' in the feeling department of life.
And the Great Conspiracy I am wishing to point out, is that we generally are all in one way or another made to deny some of our feelings, so some of
our selves. Individuals, families, societies, cultures, nations and the whole world - we all in some way deny feelings - and usually lots of them.
And so why is that? What happened - and is indeed still happening - to make us do that? Is it that it's how we're meant to live, has God made us
so we're meant to deny certain feelings? And if so, then why don't we all feel gloriously happy in our feeling-denying states?
So can you see what I'm getting at, something is going on, something mysterious, something that we're all apart of, that we do every day, and yet
mostly we're not even aware we're doing it or that it's a bad thing to do to ourselves - and so why aren't we aware?
You feel bad, you go to the doctor to take your pain away - why? Why do you have the pain in the first place? Why have we made our lives be
dependent on requiring a stranger - a doctor - to help us deal with our pain, why can't we deal with it ourselves?
So is there something or someone who's stopping us deal with it? What happened to our ancestors to make us go down this track of feeling-denial?
And humanity as a whole are experts at it now. We've had a long time to evolve and perfect it. So much so that when our child falls over we might
say: 'stop crying, you're all right, nothing bad happened'. But what is this doing to our child? We are telling it, it's wrong as it is, it's
wrong to keep crying, it doesn't know itself, the parent knows better than it, the parent says there's nothing wrong, the parent takes the child's
own feelings out of its control, making it stop feeling bad, making it suppress and then repress such feelings, all stopping it living true to itself,
all forcing it into being as its parent is - untrue to itself. And we even call this: being a loving parent!
And this is not right. Yet why don't we understand it's not right? Why do we keep accepting it as being even: 'good parenting'? What is really
going on here? And the further you look into it - into the truth of your own feeling-denial, the more you'll come to see there is something very
unloving at work.
And that's the conspiracy. Our parents, mostly through no fault of their own, are conspiring against us as their child, as shown by their stopping
us having our feelings. And having learnt from them, so we now keep doing it to ourselves, as we pass it on doing it to our children. And that's
bad, it makes us feel bad. And it's at the root of all our problems, and all out pain.
And on a spiritual level, Feeling-Denial, has been artfully inflicted on humanity, and we're none the wiser, so it's the greatest conspiracy of
all… however that's possibly a topic for another thread.
