With things like this ISIS video of them burning that pilot alive, like that poor girl who was burned alive by her boyfriend and this lady who abort her baby because it was male I am so disgusted by our actions that i want no part of this world anymore.
I am caught between wanting to live a happy and fun life but i am also sickened and maddened by the atrocities that humanity commits against itself in the name of religion and capitalism.
I see things happening like this and i have to ask myself whats really worth living for? Should i be trying to pursue financial interests and selfishly trying to make money so that me and my family can have a happy life or should i only focus on developing my spiritual self and focus on the next world?
Its entities like ISIS that ensure my perspective that there really is some spiritual unseen evil in this world influencing events by gaining control over people through their ego's. I dont know if its Satan or Lucifer or Jesus, I have no idea. This world seems to serve as some sort of proving grounds wherein you can earn place in the greater cosmic being as a lower or higher form of consciousness. This has to be true, i hope it is, i hope there is a heaven so people like the pilot and the girl can experience glory and love and that the people who did that to them experience the totality of loneliness and burn in an eternal fire. These events make me want to be a Christian, i want these things to be real so i can have assurance that these scum pay and the victims receive true rewards.

I remind myself this: my immediate reality takes precedence over external information. In other words: have you witnessed with your own eyes today any of these things you listed that are causing you concern?
The creator has a master plan, Peace and happiness for every man

If there is no objective morality, the nothing is ever truly wrong and nothing is ever truly right. Thus, all things are permissible to you, even if you say that you would never do them personally. After all, so long as someone says they are right for him or her, how can you judge?
Thus you stand there with ISIS as they burned that pilot. After all, they felt it was right and just for them, and who are you to tell them otherwise. After all, you just got done saying there is no objective right or wrong only the subjective.
You are very much part of the problem the OP has with the world, but I'm sure this thinking helps you go to sleep and wake up in the morning. After all, everything is right so long as you say it is and no one else has the right to tell you otherwise.
