Im putting this in the social issues forum because of the content i am about to present so mods please don't move, i will further clarify as and if
the threads grows.
It seems to me that one of the biggest issues facing humanity as a whole is everyones inability to live and see the truth of themselves. Here's what i
mean, everyone hides their true self for many reasons. Some of those reasons are to fit in socially, to coverup what they think is a dark part of
themselves, fear, sometimes even a blatant disregard to live honestly, and others as an attempt to be the good guy or hero. I notice this at work, at
home, with myself sometimes if i lose my sense of awareness, and in others in many places in many circumstances. Think of the judge who smokes a drug
and then goes to work and convicts people to life sentences for carrying the exact drug they are addicted to. Think of the politician who writes a
bill extending sentenced for criminal behavior they go home and do themselves. Think of the guy at work who thinks hes doing a good thing by getting
someone else fired for something their unaware of. Think of the person who lied to you last because they thought you were unworthy of their truth.
What i think is happening is, is as people become more confused by media, and social networking and get lost in information in the digital age, people
are just losing themselves. People are walking around confused about who they are and what they are, even where their at. I think humanity is
adjusting to the new technological age and we are here facing a medium or sort in which humanity is going to have to evolve for survival. At no point
in time during our currently understood and mainstream understanding of history of us and the world have we had so much control over our future. We
soon going to face a descision as a species in which we will become symbiotic with machines or face extermination. This is personal revelation that i
base on facts other then my own observations of technology and the direction i see us going in, but this isnt what the threads about.
I believe we need to start living the truth. Not only live the truth but demand from everyone all around us. I believe we need to do this at the cost
of ourselves with no regard for consequence. I believe we need to do this to save future generations and to continue to grow as a species. I believe
the biggest problem in our world is peoples frail sense of self and the egoic mind consuming our culture, at least here in America.
We have politicians passing laws for doing things they do on a daily basis (drugs, sex, other things). People who think they are good people wronging
others in their path to self righteousness unaware of the affects of their actions on others. We have people putting their belief systems ahead of the
way they treat others. People who think they winners who have won nothing. The list goes but im sure your starting to get the point if your still
The only way i see us being able to put a stop to things a lot of us here may wish to see stopped in this world is by holding first ourselves, and
then everyone around us accountable to their thoughts and actions on every level. We need to do this in a compassionate and caring manner, in way that
allows room for growth and healing, and a way that allows us to spread love and honesty throughout the world. I believe this will end a lot of hatred
spewed throughout our planet as people will finally be able to be their true self, not their self developed as a social paradigm in where they refine
their self to fit in with a group of their choice. One were people are no longer insecure and hindered socially, where they can express themselves
freely and honestly without repercussions, without hurting anyone of course.
Anyway, thats how i think we can end a lot of this senseless violence and oppression, by ending the lies, by ending all of this insecurity and ending
our current social paradigm.
I admit i could be wrong about a lot but i think at some basic level we need to start being more honest with each other and ourselves in order for
this world to change and i think thats the biggest conspiracy of them all. I think this issue is systemic and whats holding us back from entering into
a more peaceful stage of humanity.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. - I may not have clarified or left something out, please ask for further clarification.
