Our faith must be bigger than the price tag. I understand the economical impact that COVID-19 is having upon America. Some large business execs want to hurry the pace to bring back society to the way it was just a short while ago. This of course Is foolish talk as even when the spread ceases people will not forget the pandemic. The handshake may become a thing of the past. That might not be a bad idea with the world population far exceeding the earth’s natural capacity. Viruses will become more sophisticated over time. There is however an answer to this if we allow our faith to be bigger than the price tag.
Our technology is increasing at an ever-rapid rate. When our quantum computers combined with artificial intelligence advances to a level in which we can create not only vaccines but cures in days rather than years the worry of dying young will vanish, but world population may still be a problem. One might feel that cities in the seas, creating cities in places with less population density is an answer. America and the rest of the world must become very serious about colonizing space. The moon and Mars will be humanities next homes. Rather than having countries we will have self-governing planets with an alliance for the advancement of humanity into the further most reaches of space.
Humanity needs a reset and COVID-19 might just be that reset which humanity needs, right now. To admit our love of money and to then become free from the fear of lack which is holding us back. When we worry about things, those things tend to happen in our lives, and this is magnified when billions of people are putting negativity into the world. We get off on the negativity, we embrace it even when it hurts us. We feel comfortable in which we give up control. Like having an abusive partner we keep going back from a false sense of control over our lives.
It is time to do some deep soul searching. To look into the dim mirror of our souls, brave enough to be honest with ourselves and the dark human nature. Start taking steps by writing down our fears. “I can’t afford the rent, groceries, healthcare, etc.” Admit that this scares you, then start to tell yourself you can afford, you can do, you are not fearful! Embrace the evil negative thought patterns placing themunder your control. We will get though these strange times, it is what we do afterwards which will determine our future for either good or evil. We can go back to business as usual as slaves or we can create a world of universal Contributionism in which all people share in the richness of all the resources that are available to us. Along with the material benefits we will receive the most important benefit, peace of mind.
We put on a costume every day and act out a role. I do not care if you work at McDonald’s or you are a medical doctor, it is a role you play.
We have all heard phrase “I do not know what I want to be when I grow up.” I am sure you also have said this on more than one occasion. I know up until recently I have. I have also heard people as old as 60+ still trying to figure out what they want to be. It is interesting that we as a society put so much emphasis on what we are going to be, generally referring to an occupation. Our occupations seem to define yet we are never happy. We put on a costume every day and act out a role. I do not care if you work at McDonald’s or you are a medical doctor, it is a role you play.
If you are lucky enough to achieve the “dream job” you have always wanted, you probably will not be 100% satisfied. You may still not know if this is you. You may take on the professional roles such as an attorney, medical doctor, business manager etc. You say I am a doctor or lawyer or truck driver. Yes, you do those roles but is that really you? I would argue that it is not you; rather, it is a role you play in society in order to make money so you can feed yourself. We are trained this way since early childhood. The sole purpose around our education system is to grow up and be something you are really not. We are all a bunch of liars.
When going to our perspective places of work, we all put on a show. We are then watched by HR who is the biggest liars; who make sure we are lying correctly. Don’t say this, don’t do that, don’t be you. Who are you? We do not know because we were never trained to be (add your name). We were trained to be an occupation. We live in a matrix like environment in which we must submit to societal norms or be cast out like a leper ending up in a homeless shelter. Generally your only crime was you were just being yourself, or at least enough of yourself not to care about what society says you should be.
We all need to eat, and while I have met many happy people who enjoy the homeless lifestyle it is not for everyone. I myself was homeless for a short period of time and it did have its moments of freedom. Although the luxuries of life were often missed; missed so much in fact that I decided to join back in with the matrix and learn a gig. I am very fortunate that I have started to grow in my spirituality which has led me to a greater understanding of myself and the conclusions that I have stated above.
I am learning that my life’s purpose is to just be me. I am not a writer, student, counselor, teacher etc. I may do those things, but they are just actions that I do to make money in order to feed myself. I was most truly myself at the time of my birth, untainted by the corruption of our humanity. We are tainted by our educational, monetary and government systems into being ego driven sociopaths only looking out for a ourselves. What is worse we do not even know who we are. Today we have a growing number of people who suffer with depression and anxiety than ever before. We have an alarming amount of people succumb to suicide. We believe we must work 30+years then retire and die. Sadly most never learn who they really are.
Just be. That’s it. Just be. I do not expect anything out of you other than you just being you. Seek within. Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven s within. Within is found our true and highest self. A self that has been clothed with the world we live in. When taking path less traveled you must go through stages of disrobing. We then are left naked with our egos brought down and nailed upon the cross. We have returned to the state of our birth. A sense of freedom comes from taking of the layers of deceit. Removing the worldly clothes from our ego can be frightening as we will eventually view ourselves for who we truly are.
There are many steps a person can take towards understanding who they truly are. They can be found in the religions of the world as well as various occult orders. We may learn in gradually becoming curious of this unknown world within. This by the way is what happened to me. Once a conservative seminary student with aspirations of the pastorate; I realized I was learning many great truths but the organized Christianity I was a part of was not Christian at all. I let go of what I thought, I wanted to just be! I am a perfect spirit and so are you! Just be. Let go. You have found your purpose. In fact you never lost it. Your purpose is to be you. Now live you and don’t look back!
