Sadly I have to agree with you. WE are in a moral mess and many of us cannot even see it.
Our vulnerable minds are constantly bombarded by advertising propoganda which stimules greed, vanity and sexual lust. Images of violence in movies
numbs the brain to the horror of inflicting pain and fear on others so that it becomes second nature to believe in guns and knives, and communication
and negotiation is disregarded as methods of obtaining agreements. Actually, it is also because agreement is not really what those with knives and
guns have in mind. Domination and winning is more like it. How utterly immoral.
The focus of today's society is heavily laid on selfishness and materialism. A total disregard for empathy, sympathy, compassion, understanding,
spiritual growth, love and peace is envorced by the way most think and do.
This is extremely sad.
On ATS at the moment there is this 'prostitute' discussions going on and every time I considered posting a reminder that lust paves the way to hell
(it is the lowest of the senses, the animal desire, and uses the spiritual energy that could rather be channeled to spiritual progress instead of
constantly channeling it into the fire of lust) but after reading only one or two posts to try and find a footing I was so disappointed and disgusted
that i just closed the thread out of sheer helplessness. Some of these people have fallen so deep into the pit of self gratification that they will
look at me asif I am the alien.
The road of lust, and materialism travels through the lowest organs. They are very closely related as they are both centred on the ego, the self. Both
these energies take you downwards and outwards into the world. Sex and lust should not be your master. Sex is a SACRED attempt at expressing closeness
(when not for reproduction) and is utterly private between man and woman. Within the safety and trustworthy walls of an intimate relationship, man and
woman can explore while still MAINTAINING A HIGH SENSE OF SELF WORTH.
When we start justifying loose morals we will be falling down-down the slippery slope and soon we sill find ourselves doing things that we would have
thought very degrading before. Eventually a person can no longer hear that voice inside that tries to guide them and then life becomes utterly filthy
without the ability to selfevaluate.
Love and unselfishnesh is a road that leads through the heart and takes you inwards to where all the true jewels of creation lies (the microcosm
within the macrocosm) and upwards to love and higher love. This state does not allow for selfishness and just in the same way that darkness cannot be
where a light is switched on, self gratification cannot be where this pure state is. How sad that we do not choose the state of bliss, peace, immense
happiness and real joy that lies here.
I don't care who calls me names such as 'taking the higher ground' or what ever creative way you want to find to label me. We have become a specie
that is dirty inside our hearts and minds and outside our bodies in the lifestyle we follow. We are dirtying our beautiful planet and find new ways to
do so constantly. This is true.
If you cant see that at least the planet was not as poluted 100 years ago, then think back to the garden of eden. i am not a chistian or even
religious, but I do believe there was a golden age. From then till now is a very very EXTREMELY far fall in morals and values.
Can you see regression now?
THERE! now I have finally said my bit.
Probably no-one will really read it.
Cause reading is work.
And work is love.
And love is very very hard to find anymore.
