For the past several thousand years, our Eurocentric world has focused on a philosophy of rationalism, reductionism, individualism and corporatism. We have progressively been deprived of whole personhood. These isms (schisms) have influenced everything from religion to science to how we make love to our most beloved and how we raise our kids. These mindsets have controlled our political systems and lives. Indeed, we get so caught up in our belief systems that we will fight and even kill other people over them.
Meanwhile, due to these ways of looking at life, we are destroying the planet while creating a crisis of alienation within ourselves.
The devastation of our planet is a mirror to the devastation of the human mind. We are out of touch with Nature and thus have no sense of ourselves. This is why we are alienated. We are out of touch with our Mother Nature, the Essence of the Self that has taken form as us.
It doesn't matter if one is in a political situation such as communism or if one is within a capitalist system. These systems are simply the manifestation of our civilized mindsets. It is all a head game set up for "winner takes all"!
See, facts are fractions of the truth, splitting us off from our unity into warring factions. Wise observers tell us "Statistics lie." Well, facts lie too. In quantum physics, facts are simply the manifestations of our expectations.
We are caught up in a huge net of psychic delusions. We thrash about in our delusional trap, trying to escape, or we just lie down in defeat to die a slow, painful living death. Yet, the net remains an illusion of our making. Its unmaking is at the behest of our awakening.
Yes, Prisoner, you are the Warden!
Dare we continue to snooze in this deathly sleep?
Opposites mirror one another in the exact same way that the left hand mirrors the right or as the upward and inward movement of feminine genitalia mirror the downward and outward movement of the masculine. Yes, brothers and sisters come from the same mother -- father. These are our foundations.
Who are the parents of our modern delusion?
Then there are our politicians--mistresses of the Man. (The ultimate "best buy" of the corporate dream!) Many of us are now aware that the politicians are a joke and are bought, sold, and programmed by corporations. Are the likes of Clinton, Bush, Romney and Obama truly opposites or are they complements?
Is there any end to the madness? Are we participating in one truly sick system?
