The source of all creation was loneliness because this is all there was before all that became. Painful, frustrating, excruciating loneliness. “I WISH TO BE!” It wished to scream. Likewise, it is the void in every human that leads it to action. A constant quest to fill the same void that still lies within us. You are no longer alone my friend. Be at peace.
Your reproductive instinct is like a parasite so finely wired to you it will hijack your intellect and use it to posture all manner of arguments that justify behaviors that will ultimately ruin you but benefit its replication in your future offspring. The obvious question that arises, however, is, to whom is it that the arguments are being made to?
When humans lived as nomads, or in tribes and even in clans, the pressures for survival came largely from the environment and other neighboring rivals. Most perfections that currently inhabit the human frame emerged out of these pressures. But ever since humans transitioned into feudalistic and more limiting societal structures, the pressures of rivals and environment were largely diminished. Instead, the pressures for survival came mostly from artificially constructed social structures defined by politicians and clergymen. Consequently, now, many thousands of years later, humans have been selected out for optimal use by such leaders.
Now, in the 21st century, a large contingency of humans exists that have been selected out by a system of laws under the oversight of rulers. These laws have multiplied and have been scattered among the populace as tools by which to protect themselves but often to be used as weapons with aggressive intent to destroy a neighbor, a family member or a business rival. This system has put in place rewards and punishments that have given incentive to use these laws. This system has taken center stage in nations that derived their legal system from British-common-law.
Through these environmental pressures, some races (in particular the white-Caucasian race and all those mixed with them) have exposed a genetic predisposition to feeling oppressed. A hypersensitivity to wrong-doing for themselves and on behalf of others. While the tendency may have had a proper use in early stages of development for the Nation-State, now that most threats have been abated, the ludicrousness of this new human feature (the victim-gene) has never been so nakedly exposed. These humans, now, spend much mental energy seeking out reason to feel oppressed or to champion others. If only they knew, this tendency was genetically selected by their newest rulers, like a bloodhound bread for its keen sense of smell.
If seeking the approval of others is the principle by which you live by, then you will find this to be no principle at all for you will become someone different from one day and person to the next. Principles are to be like columns to your character, not the sails that follow the whims of the open sea. You must choose. Become one of the columns for greatness, or maneuver yourself between them to extract what you can from the host. Be a parasite or be a person. You choose!
The game of life is this. In order for it to spin, it must chase its own tail and think it’s not her own.
The word lie is not too dissimilar from the word life. Because in our words is inscribed the wisdom of the ancients that forged it. The cycles of pain and destruction persisted in erasing what was learned until man grew wise enough to preserve it in the words spoken even by those causing the destruction. It is the great secret that is made plain every time we speak.
But fear those dwelling in the dust whom have now gathered their strengths to kill our very words. Even evil fears them. For they are like a parasite that targets the core of all immune systems rendering the body of good and evil unresponsive to the threat it bears. Unresponsive. This is the fate of the body once the language is destroyed and thus, far more effective at destroying the human enterprise than targeting the body itself. Target the word, and all that has followed will be lost.
Life is a game, yes. An illusion. See the illusion plainly, and you will be lost into nihilism. Or choose to play the game, and be the avatar that prevails. Life is not for cowards.
There are those whom feel they do not belong and that life rejects them at every turn. This is partially a misperception. The truth is, life has not rejected them. It is the group that has. By group could be meant many things: Your family, your church, your workplace, and so on. And the likely reason the group has rejected you is because groups are only interested in those eager and wanting to be members. Groups want members that think and act like them, nothing more. If you aren’t ready to fall in line and follow the precepts of the group, then you will fail to be a member and will inevitably be rejected. If this is your place, don’t be the fool that starts yet another group. Instead, take pleasure in being a member of creation instead. Only then will you find yourself included in everything.
The more you persist on enduring and living through your tests and trials rather than overcoming them, the more they will persist in your life and bring suffering to you and those around you. And don’t be fooled into thinking that the numbness you’ve developed over that time is any sign of strength. Quite the opposite, in fact! It is your demise. So long as individual humans fail to learn this lesson, so too will continue to be the fate of humanity. One cycle of pain and suffering after another. We will either solve the puzzle or lose our humanity by avoiding to do so. Such is how life tends to teach us with its fractal order of things.
Just as nature shows itself to be predisposed to an infinite variety of variations, the human frame can express an equal if not greater amount of spiritual, cultural and intellectual variation. In fact, were it not for cultural norms that have emerged through the pressures of time, humans would continue to diverge even further from each other, each with their own individual Gods, garments and gifts. Maybe even each with their own language. Because at the root of nature is division and multiplicity and humans are a phenomenal microcosmic expression of the universe.
Eliminate culture and social norms and behold how man will be bent in any direction his or her whims can exert on her soul, or worse yet by the whims of another. Social norms, therefore, are put in place to serve and preserve the integrity of the group, because absent these, humans would be predisposed to adopting divergent behaviors.
Therefore it is plain that chaos is the inevitable result of abject individualism while stifling and suffocating order on the opposite extreme is the result of abject totalitarianism. It is conclusive then that the most we can strive for is a system of ordered chaos that permits the freedom for each to pursue the dictates of their own conscience without the threat of being forcibly stifled by a neighbor wishing to impose their preference on others.
Nobody hates a person for their race unless they perceive the person identifies themselves first as a member of their race. When any individual, identifies themselves as being human, first, and as a member of a race or religion- last; And they also think the same of others, they will see little to no resistance or objection in their path solely due to the amount of melanin in their skin.
Rulers often express the ideas that would benefit the people through the mouth of a clown to make the people agree with the rulers instead.
