People can argue knowledge all sorts of knowledge from how we got here to how to love but its nothing compared to the knowledge of yourself. Take for example, forgiveness. You can talk about it all you want and even debate how to go about doing it but unless you get to know yourself you will never be able to forgive. People can say how to be a spiritual guru but unless you realize your true self it means nothing. You can be told how to control your anger but unless you know why you get angry, you will always be angry. Learning to meditate and trying to clear your mind means nothing if you go back to all the habits that make you suffer.

The thing humans fear most is themselves, Get to know yourself and you will get to know love.

I think it is more unnatural to not be angry these days. Anger is healthy at times like this in my opinion.

And what have you accomplished throughout your anger, what do you intend to accomplish?

Knowing the self is knowing truth. It is through our direct experience with our selves that we heighten awareness and raise our consciousness.




May you find time to commune with your self.

You must learn to respect yourselves as being a humble and honourable person Your personal integrity,your moral principles and you ego must be controlled within your willpower. Then you will respect others with a humble mentality and attitude.
Anger is very common in these trying times due to the mounting pressures that are vibrating in the air. Lack of money to survive in an ever materialistic world is the main cause of the psychological tendency to get angry over trifle matters.
To try to learn to calm yourselves and become a better and wellliked person you must built up your willpower to control your every emotion.
When you are in tune with yourselves,the knowledge will automatically surface within you.Other knowledge within the universe will also be drawn to you.

So it is better to just sit by and just watch and act happy while our freedoms are taken away and the western world pretty much turning into a prison world?
People who are content and happy wont ever rise up and join a revolution to take back the power of our own countries.

Every country in this world is a prison to the people there. Even the universe that you exist in is a prison,because there are bad and outdated laws and devious systems that controls and manipulates your every action. Your destiny is being planned and controlled by those beings who are in control of the astral and material universe.
To change and make the material world a truely free place, we must first fight to change the invisible universe and all that is bad in their way of thinking. The time is approaching when the joining and merging of All beings,lifeforms and lifeforces as one absolute force to confront those very beings who have dictated over the universe since the manifestation of the astral and material universe. We have been fight fighting for a long time and this time the Combined Guardian Force of All Universe shall rise and combine with all to be the combined absolute,infinite force in the cosmic void and all created universe.

I think you should read "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse.

It might give you some good reflection on the way you perceive the world.
