It's Time for Humanity to Take It's Own Side
I don't believe any fate in any book is unchangeable for humanity. We are making the choices individually and collectively that will decide us. The real God of the universe has not planned dystopia for humanity, but the gods small g that have dominated our consciousness for millennia very well may have that planned.
By nature, humans tend toward being good and compassionate. However, that natural tendency is quite easily.overcome by repetitious conditioning. With what have humans been conditioned? Well, if we go back to ancient times we've been conditioned that we're lowly, unworthy sinners in need of redemption, awakening, and enlightenment. Our God didn't believe we were worthy of knowledge, tried to destroy us regretting he'd made us, and when we collaborated to build a tower to the heavens we were divided and our language confused. Later we were slammed with the concept of original sin - code for if you're born human you're born bad.
Then along came the age of reason. Surely, our own reasoning would place us in a more positive light? Nope. Modern science tells us we are tiny meaningless accidents existing in the midst of a colossal meaningless accident. We are the nefarious villains in the mythos of climate change where humans play the demons to the earth's shining divinity.
Finally, our mainstream media and entertainment works 24/7 to convince us other humans are bad, scary, and dangerous and we buy it even though it counters the reality of our day-to-day lives.
Garbage in, garbage out. With millennia of these kinds of messages, it's a wonder we're sane as we are and haven't destroyed ourselves.
If we start feeding our minds and consciousness with better messages, we can rise up and fulfill our true potential as a species We are capable of so much more, but we have to shed the conspiracy of perpetual negativity to manifest it.
Either way, our only chance to solve the puzzle of our past and ignite a new future for humanity is to take pro-human position. For too long, we've been apologists for the very forces oppressing our species. They're powerful, advanced, and egoistic so challenging them is dangerous. It's very likely our inbred fear of them comes from a time when they openly used that power to oppress us and destroy humans who challenged them.
You are a human being. I am a human being. We are human beings. Why would we continue to play along in a game that doesn't benefit us, take our interests to heart, or end well for us, if we're to believe all the dystopian prophecy that started in ancient books and now flows to us every day through popular media?
It's time to take our own side side. It's time to climb up off our knees and spit the sand out of our mouths from laying face down to these beings for millennia and take our destiny in our own hands. We are capable, despite what you've been told. It will take time, even with the best of intentions, to rid our system of the toxic, disempowering messages that have been so ingrained within us.
We've been in this abusive relationship too long. We don't have to make excuses any more for those who have done this to us and then blamed us, like an abusive parent.
One line of push back I've received to this argument is that, in blaming the gods small g for what they've done, I'm shifting responsibility off of humanity for our actions.
I want to be clear. No one is a stronger advocate for the idea that the hero you're waiting for is waiting for you in the mirror than me. In fact, this is going to mean us taking personal and collective ownership like never before. We're not taking ownership for the abuse that wasn't our fault, but for the path to transcend it. No one is going to do this for us. There no cavalry coming. Like new born zebra on the Serengeti, we're going to have to learn to stand up on our own legs in a dangerous neighborhood and claim our life.
I happen to believe that we, like all sentient life in this multiverse, have within us a divine spark that holds the key to our potential. Knowledge of that fact has been among the most hidden pieces of information.
How can we know what information is good and what information is not in this world where information is fed to us by firehose and everyone is pitching an angle. I think Buddha, of all people, had a sound answer to this conundrum. It's advice we would do well as humanity breaks orbit from the gravity of this age-old deception and charts a course for its own destiny.
Many will be fearful of this process. They hold a deep-seated fear of punishment from the gods small g that became the God big G. They will hold onto to beliefs that don't support the well-being of themselves or those around them. It's OK. Everyone will understand in due time.
However, those of us who have awakened to the fact that this world is not being run in a way that benefits human beings on this planet, must work together to chart a constructive, collaborative new course that is based on our mutual self-interest. We are after all, human beings, and we have have every right to take own side, support our own interests, and make our move to take our place among the space-faring civilizations in this galaxy.
Never stop seeking your truth!
