I don't really know how to start, or where to start.
But there are becoming more and more people, who seems to be awaiting some kind of enlightenment, who thinks there someday will come an golden age,
and every person will become better, spiritual, a good fellow man, and what not.
That actually frightens me.
Not the change... But the fact that there are so many people, who actually waits for it..
Who thinks, they don't need to do anything, other than wait, so this crappy world will become a better place.
The reason the world wont become any better soon, are because of people like that.
For me, enlightenment is something yourself
achieve. Not something you have to wait on.
Its when you go help another person who is stuck because of his car.
Its when you begin to think about what you are doing, not just doing things because of yourself.
Its when you think of another person, before you think of yourself.
Its when you start to understand that animals got feelings too.
Its when you feel bad when you throw out garbage from your car _
I could keep going, but I guess most of you know what a good person is.
The reason I write this, is because of a thread there was started on ATS for some time ago, where they were talking about how enlightenment was going
to work, and that you could feel it.
In the thread, it scared me how many that wrote "That is happening for me" And so on.
If you actually think, you can achieve enlightenment, without doing anything, you are wrong.
And then you are probably one of the reason we will never have a 'golden age'.
You need to wake up
, and do something to others, instead of sitting home and think you are evolving into some higher spirituality.
P.S if you think this sounds like a rant, then move it to the rant forum. Thanks!
