One of the easier ways to determine which is which is by asking self reflective questions. Consider the husks as simply a computer, ask your computer
why did what it did to you when it crashed. No answer, it isn't programmed to self reflect and neither are the husks.
Admittedly, most people are unable to distinguish the language differences in true self reflection verses programmed responses to stimulus, but it can
be done as I do it often. Humans, true humans, are self reflective, we live to learn about our reality and what we do in it, the husks simply execute
tasks they are programmed to execute.
Yes, the majority of the world now are husks, though it was not always this way.
I find this statement very very disturbing - why ? Because I agree with it..
I do not understand so much of what happens in this world - I mean this when I say, I cannot understand people who do not value all life equally.
To me all life is sacred - It is not ours to destroy or take away - our job is to live in harmony with this lovely planet, yet we defile her with our
blatant and casual cruelness.
Take the dolphins that are slaughtered, the whales, the elephants and rhino - what right do people have to do such evil things. I believe these people
are not connected to their souls - if they were they could not do such things.
I saw a picture once of a shark with a tear or what looked like a tear in his eye, as he lay dying, on a beach, having had his fin removed and his
body chucked back in the water ... only to end up dying and wasted on some beach somewhere - for what ? So that someone can enjoy sharkfin soup -
I saw another picture of an orangutang mother protecting her baby, crouched over her, as hunters descended with machetes, her forest home having been
destroyed. She was saved by a charity just before she was murdered in cold blood... what for ? Palm oil plantations.. for use in cosmetics and
margerine - sick.
What world tolerates such brutality and barbarism ?
Why are ancient forests chopped down ? Do the fools doing this not realise what they are doing - I am guessing they do not care, they are just
interested in the cash in their back pockets.
I am the only person I know - who gets a physical pain when I connect to such things, it is crippling and agony.
SO it is like I have to hide behind a thick wall of unfeeling to survive in this realm, it is a very painful place for me.
Or am I the only person I know who feels such pain - do others feel it too and are they in denial?
I mean, I find slaughterhouses vile and cannot eat creatures that have been subjected to such torture - but if I say that to people, most laugh and
say something like
' you are making me hungry for a steak' ..
So yes I feel out of step with the people of this world.. does that make me 'souled' i have no idea to be honest.
All I know is that most people are very cut off from what matters..
