I hear ya!
I know it sounds weird, but I too just explained to a close friend why my hobby is "world conspiracies" and (as for the first time in weeks I had
someone to talk to about this in a sensible way), while talking I wondered how strange it is that every movement has some kind of "spiritual
leader", and how these people gather around them a following like modern saviours: be it, for example, Alex Jones for NWO theorists, or Dr. Steven
Greer, the UFO disclosure guy; there used to be Michael Moore and Erich von Däniken - and also, how other "subcultures" have different
"icons" in arts, music, politics, science, religion and various other forms of social networks.
Many of them - with some exceptions - gain power by playing on the fears of people, stating clear "if X, then Y" rules, "programming" the minds by
telling them what they are meant to avoid, should keep away from and so on.
We have clear definitions for what we hate, or don't want: war, injustice, suffering, sorrow, pain, for example. These are written on stone. But
because there are so many diffuse things that we can choose to WANT, we find many explanations what may cause the things we don't want: the devil,
the illuminati, the reptiloids, the Dark Force and argue amongst us what can be done against THESE.
But WE create the universe around us, so let's focus on the many stuff we DO want. Let's get real greedy. What do we put our faith in, what makes us
happy, what are we in love with? Peace, money, happyness, a cure for all diseases, something to eat, a drink, freedom, control, wisdom, enlightenment,
zero point energy, friends from outer space, nice neighbours, fresh air, good food, education, weapons, might, strength, tolerance and understanding,
benevolence, sex, more rules, a healthier planet, more security, a nice and fulfilling job, less liberalism, faster cars, more drugs, the truth, free
icecream for kids under 12 years on each 2nd sunday of the month?
Each one be a leader, a visionary, a magician, a prophet, a master of his thoughts, creative power of his part of the universe, his own destiny... to
turn that pyramid upside down: there are many ways to go from here, let's find a few of them :-)
May peace prevail on earth!
^^ my first wish
PS: This is worth a forum, let's call it "Aladin's Lamp". Why not start threads with stuff that we want and let those who agree post their ideas
about these thoughts. That would be pretty neat, and with a little luck this would affect the overall spirit of the board: a global project to examine
the vibes and metamorphic fields in a virtual meditation on a binary level :-)
