It is becoming more apparent to me that a major distraction is underway, and has been for some time. Decades.
Currently, in every single country in the world, the population is locked into some sort of disagreement. These populations locked in dispute are
typically divided into two sides. For example: Libs vs Dems, Leave vs Remain, Socialist vs Capitalist, West vs Rest. This in itself is an indicator
that something suspicious is afoot; the fact that most disputes are rarely black or white (two sided) should make us question the disputes. In 99% of
cases the solution to a problem lies somewhere in the middle of the two extremes. Yet we are forced (normally by the media) to take one side over the
The result of Earth’s population being locked in dispute is distraction. There is a constant cycle of dispute but never is there a resolve. One
illusion of resolve merely leads on to an evolution of the original dispute, or a completely new dispute.
For example, the world will not get measurably better if the UK remains in the EU, nor will it get measurably better if the UK leaves the EU. There
will of course be positive and negative outcomes but in the long run, no matter what the outcome, these will equal each other out and the end result
will be another dispute in which the populace are forced (by the media) to take one side or another, whilst those in power remain unaffected.
(Interestingly as an aside, when individual disputes are looked into in depth, be it climate change, economics, whatever, it is generally the case
that being able to be completely in agreeance with one side or another is impossible due to a few things: 1) lack of available knowledge, 2) lack of
expertise to allow the ‘everyman’ to understand the available knowledge on offer, or even 3) lack of experience of the specific obstacle or
People have been locked into these disputes for centuries. I understand that disputes of old generally stem from rich and powerful people dragging
peasants and soldiers into war for their own gains, not to provide a distraction. However of late, over the last few decades it seems to me that
whilst the rich and powerful are still dragging us into wars for their own gain, there are other ‘moral panics’ or ‘band wagons’ which are
pushed at us. This ends up with the populace becoming increasingly distracted with increasingly futile distractions. Always negative, for obvious
This is leading me to wonder what the distraction is. From what or for why is it necessary to keep the populace distracted? The common answers in our
circles is that we are being distracted from a major cover-up, from a secret government deal, a Regulation being signed behind our backs, maybe
distracted from alien contact – all specific ideas from which we are being distracted.
I have a different opinion.
I believe we are being distracted from ourselves.
The more time I spend away from the daily distractions of politics and the media the more I am growing as a person. I’m not perfect, completely the
opposite. I get angry, I eat rubbish, I drink too much (again). But removing the negative distractions from my life is allowing me to become more
understanding, more compassionate and my brain is working better. It’s faster, it’s tighter, and it’s beginning to understand the bigger
I have replaced many of the distractions with healthier habits. I won’t go into details. You’ll accuse me of being a hippy.
So am I getting closer to a universal truth? And if I am would we all be stronger if we got rid of the futile distractions from our life and worked on
ourselves to become closer to the universal truth as a group?
I don’t doubt that politics can have beneficial effects on our lives if we fight for what we believe in – but does the benefit of positive
political outcome outweigh the benefit of personal and spiritual growth and the effect this could have on the entire planet?
I personally doubt it does.
