I have found that the world we are looking at and being shown every day is nothing more than a smoke screen. There is so much love in the world. So many who care. As I believe it was Mister Rodgers who said; “When I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me; Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
We are being shown a world of chaos, all of the time. Whether financial, War, Mass shootings… Yes people are dying and are experiencing it in terror. We can ask ourselves; what is the correlation to our addiction to movies, where this happens all the time. And horror movies. Pulsing our bodies full of adrenal for two hours in anxiousness and for some, fear. And say, when it is over, “glad I didn’t have to experience that.” The truth is we do. We have through all forms of media witnessed so much devastation, that we pass off any real catastrophe, as a society, as if it really isn’t happening. Hence, we don’t care. Except those that are the helpers…
So that brings me to the point of this moment.
There are 300 plus million people in this country, and instead of dealing with things, we are shopping. We ignore the homeless, the lost are placed in homes or state hospitals. And the poor are incarcerated, hidden away from our eyes.
We make stupid people famous. Why? That way we are able to judge ourselves as better than them, so we change nothing about our own lives. I have participated in all of this, but if have to see another thing about the fucking Kardashians, I want to flee this country.
Why does this happen… I am not a Christian Fanatic but this correlates to what is happening in the USA.
Every adult above the age of thirty remember the movie the Ten Commandments, with Charlton Hesston.
No matter how much we call ourselves a Christian nation, are we not more like the Canaanites dancing around the golden calf? Even the movie Dogma, by Kevin Smith, used the corporation, Mooby’s, the golden calf as its idol.
We certainly are not acting like Christ has modeled. How many times a day do you truly see another human being? Bless them with your heart and not your judgement, or disdain.
We are in fear… Our society is self-imploding because everything we are shown is either horrific, or glitz. But if we think about it, how many people out of the 7 billion that exist are actually individually affected? Do you see any of what lies between the two extremes? The America we live in is not our grandparents. It is our mess, and to an extent, our ego’s, needing to be fulfilled with just what we want. We tithe, to let go of the rest of the world. We as a collective are participating in the creation of our future. How is it looking to you? To your heart and mind?
So much of our world is actually, in peace. Do you witness the beauty and gentleness that unfolds every day, even all around us?
We are either going to slide off the cliff, purposefully, with our intent. Or we will take a collective breath, slow down, Attempt to see others as innocent as you see yourself to be, allow your heart to touch theirs.
I am not afraid to admit; I am truly scared for us.
And, at the same time, I am the one I‘ve been waiting for.
So true, nice post !
