Great post OP, you are singing my kind of tune
Let me share with you an irony...
A snake has the venom to kill a man, yet it sits there in fear of us. The snake would rather run first, but when backed into a corner, it will strike.
When it strikes it lets go of all fear, and in striking has the potential to injure and kill a man. In that moment of life and death potential who is
then in fear?
The snake having had to confront his fear, or the man having to confront his own mortality? The snake is wise, and choses to remove himself from a
situation of harm, man is foolish for thinking he has dominion over all. Man is a part of the order, a slave to natural law, as is the snake and all
The way we humans have been pushed into fear is not unlike the irony of the snake. The all powerful fear us more than we fear them. Because they need
us to prop them up, we do it tough, trying to survive on our own. We are the strong, the oppressed, the ones under the control of tyranny, yet we
prevail because our existence is proof of our strength, our resiliance... the powerful do not bare the scars of battles won and fought, for they allow
others to do their bidding, only enhancing their weakness and their sad grab of control.
When you realize we, the oppressed, those under control of tyranny are the snakes, then we are the ones with the real power. We are the strong! They
may batter our bodies, they may be break our bones, they may shackle us and imprison us, but the mind will always be free. In their lust for control,
they only serve to push us snakes further into a corner, to the point where fear is faced squarely and upon which is reversed back onto those who
oppress the snake.
A tipping point is coming, and no-one need have to die from facing such fears to realize the illusion that the powerful are the true fearful and the
oppressed are the strong. In great numbers we can come together, free from fear and thus freeing ourselves from tyranny. A world where all men and
women are born equal, where families, friends and neighbours can rejoice in life, rather than languish in competition. We have the power to end it
tomorrow, but too many are still too distracted... but slowly, the lights are turning on. Slowly people are beginning to question the state of their
reality and are asking is this life really as good as it can get?
Humanity and the earth is at a cross roads, the old institutions are running out of steam, and old foundations are crumbling... the time is coming for
a new earth, one which we co-create for the benefit of all who dwell here!
