In all my studies in Search of Truth, Philosophy & Spirituality, Consciousness, the Metaphysical & the Political I have become a Realist. My Philosophy remains an ever evolving open book, looking at things as The Cup half full always, but In the process I have killed all of my illusions, grown cynical of politics and of "hope", come to understand human nature, seen through Dogmas and come to a better understanding of why things are the way they are.
It is better to look at things as they truly are and not make excuses for the way things appear. I have seen through the veil, a glimpse of what could have been, what will be and what is now...
It comes down to personal responsibility in all aspects of ones life, and countless hours of soul searching, going within ones mind through meditation as the key to unlocking the secrets of this life. The answers to happiness, or the pursuit of it. It is personal responsibility for ourselves that will save us as individuals, and as a collective whole. I remember a famous quote, through many years of reading every book I could get my hands on ,"Faith without works is Dead". This is very true. To merely believe in something without doing the work needed to accomplish the goal is pointless.
Hope is one the most manipulated and empty words there is. It is wishing that something will happen without doing the work needed to accomplish it. For example; "My dog has been hit by a car, but I am not going to the vet, I just hope he will recover". Hope and Complacency as a symptom of inaction has become an excuse for not doing something or ignoring the problems we ALL face, in the "hope" that everything will just work itself out and we will avert whatever we are running away from or avoiding.
It is by placing Hope in others to do things for us, the things that we should do ourselves that we are sorely disappointed and fall further away from true change or progress.
Instead of Hope we should DO. Through personal responsibility and action alone we can change our world, our lives and our reality. Faith is not something to be thrown away, but placing Hope for change by sitting idle and waiting for some Politician, Savior or date on some ancient calendar to just come along to save us from ourselves is mindless arrogance and ignorance of the way the universe works, it is but a slow suicide in truth.
The reality of the situation is that we stand at the most crucial time in modern recorded human history. The Clock is now at 11:59, or maybe it is 12:01 and everyone is just lost staring like a deer in the head lights, it is a staring contest, a carnival of illusions, waiting for someone or something to move or happen so that we might all get on board and cast off these chains of complacency.
The moment we can begin LIVING life as it is truly meant to be experienced and not this slave based rate race we find ourselves in. It is about creating a better world for ourselves, for our children and our grandchildren. It is about unveiling the illusion that is ruled by corruption and greed and replacing it with truth and love. It is beyond time for us to begin acting like we are the most advanced beings to ever grace this floating rock.
It comes down to the fact, that we are the ones we have been waiting for. There is no difference between us, not of race, color, creed, religion, liberal or conservative, democrat or republican or any other contrived and created difference or label we have imagined for ourselves. We humans are good at creating things to prove our diversity while all we are really doing is dividing and splitting ourselves away from each other. We are all one and the same, human beings, all trying to do the same thing, to simply live and provide the best we can. To experience and to attempt to contemplate our place in this universe.
The Games must stop now. We must stop living in imaginary worlds, distracting ourselves from the truths that are so blatantly obvious so we feel better about feeling so helpless. We must reclaim our power and rise up and shout ENOUGH! We must become the change we want to see in the world. We must evolve , Revolt and cast off the old ways that only enslave the mind and soul. We must become what we are meant to be...
No corrupt or evil power hungry man, or Government, or Religion has the right to hold power and dictate the lives of others.
So enough making excuses, enough lying to ourselves or waiting around for someone else to come and save us, we must do it ourselves, we must do it soon and we must do it right.
We must do the work needed to make it happen ourselves as well. No one else will do it for us.....Take Personal Responsibility and stand up
The time is Now
