Ive been spending time wondering and trying to understand the mentality I see today concerning the major call for the world to be saved that is infecting everyones mind in a viral fashion yet the part I watch in horror is the side of it that is projected outward in complete ignorance of the immediate concern, ie, yourself.

Be it in the form of people longing for the overthrowal of the rulers of this world, people that want aliens to turn up to the rescue, truth movements, and I could on of course but im not going to bother because its easy too see if you stick around and watch with your eyes.

Ask yourself where this feeling even comes from?

What does the world need saving from?

Ask yourself why the heck you care?

If you dont care, ask yourself why you do not care?

Ask yourself what would make you truly happy from a world stance of view?

What would make you happy as a person?

If this world changed tomorrow and you ruled it, what would make you better at it?

If you cant make it better, what makes you think there is something out there that can or someone?

Question simply where the essence of the feeling comes from and truly ask yourself, why are you directing it outward?

Im interested to see if anyone understands what I am asking and if they can answer it because it is at the core of every single person yet almost everyone strikes outward.

Do not mistake me in this thread at all if you believe I am appearing condescending towards others, I am doing nothing more than what was done for me if you can see, take the time to understand.

Ok, I retract this last statement and apologize. So why don't you go ahead and answer these same questions you have asked of others, than maybe I will better understand where your coming from. THanks.

Cannabis?

Ive been near it once when I was a kid and had a panic attack, so its a no from me


That aside, im simply trying to spur an honest approach to where the need for saving comes from and why is it that people direct it outward?

How many of the same people who feel like this would push themselves in front of a bullet that was aimed at another person?

Im not expecting everyone to understand my point, I did say that in my opening post and not because of anything other than the reasons I have stated, ie, outward approach. The worlds problems answer nothing about the worlds future.

We live in a world where the past is shaped by the present, the future is shaped by the past. It offers nothing but confusion yet we all feel a longing to save it. Why?

Why do a lot of us ask the world for the answers instead of wondering where this nature comes from within, the need to save us all if you like?

I'm feeling this feeling of powerless bystander at a plane crash and with the notion that if they would just have listened when I told them it was metal fatigue, it didn't have to happen.

Screaming outwards hoping it would help me forget my part in all this.

Cause all fairness needs me to say that if we would all push the energy we use screaming for help , and redirect it into our personal affairs , and really start bettering our lives, we would not have to scream help to others.

I think the feeling comes from all the input i receive from all i live. Things are not right.
The reason i care is it would benifit me and all for a better life.
What would make me happy would be to be sinless.
No mortal man can rule this world. studying the bible teaches the truths of the mortal mans life, The truth that Godalmighty is real and very misunderstood, NOT THE BEARDED MAN IN THE BIG CHAIR IN THE SKY, BUT LIFE, ALL LIFE MANIFESTED INTO REALITY.

The human being is essentially a communal being. There is a deep elemental reason for this, but regardless of why, the fact remains that the human being seeks community with other humans. This western society pushes the notion of independence and relentless competition as the heroic ideal, celebrating the sociopathic behavior of the uber-achiever as the right way of expressing the human spirit.

The reason for this is obvious, since established power is easily maintained when the competing potential of the masses is eliminated if they are as scattered as possible. Now, the nuclear family is being touted as the largest proper community for the western society version of humanity, with anything more than this being labeled as Socialism. And yet, the essential need for the human being is community, and all the benefits inherent within that close and supportive structure.

This schism is ripping our society to shreds and the campaign (and election) of Obama - due to his invoking our deep desire and need for the kind of community he told us we could have for ourselves - has awaken that very real need within too many of us to have it go back to sleep again just because a few talkshow hosts tell us it's evil to care for each other.

I would love it if people would realize that what Obama showed us we can have if we actually decide to reach to each other and create that community. He said "Yes WE can"...not "Yes I can". There's power in We.

This need, and that brief taste of maybe getting to have it, is what's freaking people out.

I am you and you are I, it seems that you have not much more time.
Why, do do we project our horrors outward? Because if not, it will eat us up from the inside out.

This feeling comes from the very ones, who would have us not ask it at all.



What does the world need saving from?



Your I.



Ask yourself why the heck you care?



it is none of your business.



If you dont care, ask yourself why you do not care?



Because it is my business.



Ask yourself what would make you truly happy from a world stance of view?



you can not afford it



What would make you happy as a person?



you can not afford it



If this world changed tomorrow and you ruled it, what would make you better at it?



I can afford it.



If you cant make it better, what makes you think there is something out there that can or someone?



I never said I can not, you did.
