I'll probably get flack for this, but I don't care.
I think the answer lies in a process of changing our perceptions and what we focus on, ultimately. Choosing to direct our thoughts and behaviors in
more positive directions, not becoming overwhelmed, depressed, apathetic, or overly angry about the things we are passionate about. For example, I
feel strongly about human rights, I am incredibly aware of the dysfunction that exists in the world, and so forth... but I don't let it consume me. I
realize that continually embracing nihilism and negativity AFTER I became conscious of the truths of the world is just as destructive as being either
an uninformed ignorant or someone who is informed but chooses to elevate self-interests above all else.
I hope this makes sense so far. Let's see... the whole "divide and conquer" method just isn't working anymore. Even the whole "we are the 99%!"
is divisive. The corrupt elite and politicians are a part of all of us (we are all One, after all!), they are not some subhuman entity completely
removed from sentience. But they do represent the darkest manifestation of the soul, the most extreme version of evil that exists to some degree
within each human (which, again, are parts of a whole).
So how do we "conquer" that darkness? To be blunt, we can't. What we can do, though, is subjugate it's power, influence, and importance by
focusing our awareness, our consciousness, on love. Instead of trying to fight evil with rage, which veryyy often results in a sense of powerlessness,
we should instead become empowered by extending compassion in every single possible way we can - and this needs to happen first on the individual
levels. Then it can happen as a movement.
If we believe we are powerless and weak, we will indeed become so, if we aren't already. Once we realize the incredible power we have to direct the
energy first of our own, individual existence ("individuality," of course, a conception born out of the illusion of time), we can then converge
these "individual" energies to rediscover the truth of the Singularity. Not sure how long this process takes, or how it can ultimately manifest, but
I feel its truth very deep within my bones.
