I have posted this before, but i just dont feel i was doing it properly. Because of how passionate i am about it, and how much energy i put into it,
i feel it deserves its own thread. The other discussions were centralized over the "end of the world." There were too many that were
fear-mongering or saying things like "this is how its always been, there is no problem." Either way, i have added a lot, and hopefully under its
own thread, the post will gain more focus as the topic.
Many feel that the world is a fantastic place in all regards, and that there is little improvement to be made. i am not one of those people. Others
feel that it is absolutely hopeless to do anything whatsoever. i am not one of those people.
But how will we change anything if we do not try?
I am not asking, or telling anyone to do anything. I am proclaiming what this one intends to do, "end of the world" or not. It is irrelevant. It is
almost as if people didnt realize they were going to die?
I have put my all into the following post. I mean it with the entirety of my very being. What i have to say is not new. It is considered by many to
be hippy bs tripe, but i feel that is because of cynicism, and lack of desire to actually change on a person level. To those who would say such
things, i strongly encourage you to come up with solutions yourself. Truly. The way things have been done will yield the same results. What we are
doing right now, is the definition of insanity. If you do not feel anything in the world needs changing, then this thread (simply put) is not for
you. I make no judgments on anyone, however. All i know is that for thousands of years, the same thing has happened. The same cycles have occurred.
Pointing fingers everywhere except towards one owns actions and perspective. This one will do that no longer. I am pointing the finger at myself.
The only one i have the power to truly change is myself. But, if i never gather the strength to do so, how can anyone expect someone else to do the
same? I am putting this out there because.. maybe, just maybe, others are thinking in the same way, but havent had the motivation (for whatever
reason) to speak out and consciously choose. I have seen many people riddled with everything from fear, to outright agents of division and hate. But
i have also seen a trend of some going in the other direction, which instills a glimmer of hope. Regardless of others actions, though, i know exactly
what way of life i am choosing, consciously and continuously.
I see all these talks of revolution and "change" and cant help but have serious, serious doubt.
How long did it take for the american revolution to simply fall back into the hands of corporations, and greed-obsessed individuals? not long at
Many of the very people calling for change would be guilty of the exact same crimes they fervently fight against, if put into the same positions.
Nothing will change, it will simply prolong the problem, shoving it off on our great-grand children (at best). This cycle has repeated itself for
too long. What makes anyone
think THIS time will be different?
Contrary to the popular view on this standpoint, it doesnt mean nothing is to be done. It means, to this one, that people need to start taking
responsibility for their actions on a personal and individual level. If the change doesnt occur there, it is simply procrastination (one of the
things humans do best). I have little doubt that a revolution in say, america, would lead to nothing but chaos and looting. Perhaps that is a
cynical view, no, that is
a cynical view, but humans currently have very little interest in actually helping one another as "self" and are
much more interested in helping ones immediate body as self. They will trample over one another to get the last piece of bread, without a care to how
many die in the process (literally). Re-acting to pre-programmed neural pathways without even knowing why.
It is not the nebulous "governments" fault, they are simply giving in to the same base desires most people would if put into the same
It is only a matter of time. It is the individuals involved responsibility for their own actions, devoid of any vague entity such as religion,
government, or anything else. But, to break this terrible cycle, i must change myself first
. It will take a different direction than what we
have always done, and will be difficult in that respect. However, such a direction is necessary as the way i have done things leads into very, very
predictable results. We only need to look at history for our answer on how things will continue to go. Something much different must happen, for
something much different to happen. But, i strongly feel it starts with us as individuals.
Its so disheartening to see all this destruction, division, and hate.. it truly, truly, truly
brings tears to my eyes.
The proposed solution is coming from a place of unconditional Love. When this happens, the definition of "self" changes to include ALL. Who would
trample one they Love for food? Who would stifle the progress of their people if they had unconditional Love? Who would murder one another in the
name of Love? Who would need to have a revolution if the governing bodies came from a place of unconditional Love? This is NOT speaking of the
emotion of love, where one becomes the almighty arrogant judge of what is or is not deserving of it. It is, as my signature says, a
. A conscious, mindful, choice
towards true balance and equality. Realizing that this sack of blood and guts is no more important
than the next, period. It will take a change on a completely different level to yield results that so many say
they want (but do they really?
i have sincere doubt). This isnt about semantics over the word. It can be called anything one wants. Love, Respect, anything. The end result is
That does not
mean no action is ever taken.
That does not
mean one sits around twiddling his/her thumbs while the world crumbles around them.
It means that every single decision..
every single thought..
every single f#cking movement is done from a base of Love.
If we, as a race, are truly interested in change, what else can be proposed?
This one will no longer sit around, hoping this endless, useless, violent cycle will somehow dissipate this time around
. The only way this
will work is to truly
realize the "power of the people." Those who have said this throughout history have turned into nothing but martyrs or
given the title of "saint." As if they did something others somehow were not capable of choosing themselves. Do humans really
or do they just want the opportunity to do the same terrible things themselves? Or do they simply not realize their "revolution" will simply
devolve into that which it fought against in mere decades, if not immediately? It just seems so incredibly blatant and obvious to this one.
Call me a fool, call me an idiot, call me "weak," call me what you will. It does not matter. It is
time for change.
I am making a damn stand.
This is a revolution of a different kind.
I do not "love" you
individually, i am in a radiant state of Love.
