Nothing Is Going To Come From The Sky And Save Us

20150720_140421There is nothing above or higher than us and we need to start acting like it.

Meditation yes, prayer no.
Reflecting internally yes, expecting externally no.

We Are Higher.

What Go(o)d Comes From Prayers?

Our leaders on the scene asking multiple times for prayers, why?

It’s a pacifier.

And what exactly are we suppose to be praying for? And praying to what for what?

And to be elected to a leadership position you must display a strong belief in prayer.

Prayer is completely self serving

Prayer and meditation may be cousins maybe, but there is harm in praying to and relying on an external source, expecting action from that source and doing nothing. Being subservient to a higher being is de-empowerment and esteem lowering, there is nothing higher than us (consciousness) and we need to start acting like it.

The underlying problem also is that there is something out there that is going to come and save us or helps us. We need to realize that we are all we have and step up to the plate and not pacifying ourselves waiting on the savior.

I Feel Totally Like A Mortal Today

i feel mortal today. mentally clumsy and unable to leap tall buildings with a single bound. when i go thru these types of episodes i imagine that this is what the overwhelming majority of the rest of the world feels like basically all the time. the keywords: “feels like.”20150705_105816

sure i may or may not be “immortal” and just a “talking hairless monkey” like other homo sapiens, but the key is what i feel like. belief is a powerful thing in that just as your faith in God strengthens and supports you, my deep belief in myself and my capability empowers me just the same. maybe my belief more so as i place nothing above me and i bow to nothing i’ve witnessed in this universe. i am indebted to no higher power and my behavior is not directly tied to an arbitrary judgement to determine my eternal happiness or well being.

this thinking gives me the foundation to achieve a freedom that most humans could never possibly attain. a freedom that just doesnt happen but needs to be achieved via effort and focus.

my future and the things that happen to me are not dependent on an unseen conscious being. the mere fact i’m not bound by an idea of a force that protects me from an evil is a massive freedom.

Love One Another For What?

20150608_000832On my way to work I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said “Love One Another.” I thought to myself, what would that really accomplish? What does “loving one another” really get done? Getting things accomplished, fixed, changed, progress, etc may be the goal and that can be done if we love each other or not. More practical and tactical strategies are needed to “progress” in a global world consisting of thousands of cultures and billions of people. Then I thought there is a chance we have accomplished more things because of NOT loving each other!! LOL

When I was smoking weed daily I was deep into the whole hippy- new age- harmony- hugs and rainbows- depaak chopra- thing. But then I realized that whole “let’s get along” concept is just an operating mode. It actually is not a solution, action or strategy to get anything done!!
We don’t have to come together to get stuff done and things changed. And hey now that I think it may be even better if we DON’T kum-by-ya in sleep circles. It may be best if we address our social, economic, etc issues with opposing viewpoints, dispositions and emotions.

We are in this together and in the macro macro sense at multiple universe scales we are “a” one. But that may not mean that we are one. Sure it feels good to pursue the idea of solidarity, but possibly the only things we may need to be “one” in is communication and economic protocols. When it comes to the actual “get things done” practicals of exchanging with each other there we need to be one and on the same page.

We are past the “can we all get along” phase. It may not seem like it but we are already actually doing it. There will never be an “everybody is equal” or a “we are all a success” Utopia. Certain evils will always exist but should not detract from the parts we are getting right. And for the most part WE ARE GETTING IT RIGHT. We may not all love one another but basically we are getting along. A few acts of violence and the corresponding outrage are reminders of what “evil” is and can really be.
