It has been an interesting year, thus far, this 2020. I have to admit to feelings of a misanthropic nature. Certainly melancholy. It seems many of my fellow humans have indeed lost their senses.
It’s clear that as a species, we need the ideas of climate crisis, and global economic and political collapse. We need these seemingly insurmountable challenges to both unite us, and to force us to break through the patterns and paradigms that have brought us exactly and perfectly to this intensely catalytic point in modern history.
Isn’t it strange that our laws and statutes are enacted to allegedly protect the majority from the vastly less significant minority — those of a criminal or distorted character and propensity — who would engage in or profit from exploiting an otherwise open system of commerce, education and governance?
When you endeavor to grasp the greater aspects of how this universe works, you really can’t help but fall down a few rabbit holes — and really, that’s an essential step in learning discernment and embarking on an open road to wonder and discovery.
When you finally come to grips with the idea that much of Western (or modern, capitalist/consumerist) society exists within a low-level mental cloud of illusory belief systems, you will realize that there is a lot that you need to unlearn, in an effort to reframe your world as you know it.
