The nature of this higher power is so all encompassing, and denies the nature of what we've become so thoroughly, and is just so absolutely
simplistic and unexpected (considering what we've convinced ourselves over the years) that we refuse to see it.
I don't completely understand why we insist upon looking everywhere but at the light...perhaps it's because of what we've become. Perhaps it's
because we are too frightened to let go of what's familiar. Perhaps it's because we would rather be followers than leaders, and those to whom
leading comes naturally have decided to further themselves rather than the world, because of their mortality - and they want to have all the power and
influence and change they can before their bodies decay.
Who knows? All I know, is this: all of the hell and the "demons" and the negativity in this world was born of our actions and our reactions. We have
done this to ourselves. And we continue trying to fix what we've broken, only to discover as it's being fixed, we're breaking something else. And
it continues in a circle. We are NOT the most intelligent species on the planet, because in spite of our potential and our power, we have done the
most harm to it.
Saddening, isn't it? I think the crux of it is this: all of nature is in motion. And that's what the nature of the universe is. But we want to stay
in place, and we keep inventing more and more ways to stay in place. And we keep doing that, ignoring the damage that's building up as a result of
our stagnance, because we have convinced ourselves we need go no further.. And that's where we're wrong.
