It is as if we are in some kind of violent squeeze, penance for past sins, or just wicked men behaving wickedly.
Regardless of whom or what is behind the endless cavalcade of charred carcasses, those of us who look on in horror feel a sense of grief; inability to change as if we were in the middle of a living, breathing night terror from which we cannot awake.
But how do we fight this beast of a million
heads that mines our hearts for the last drop of fear and anxiety it can
draw until we collapse, punctured and poisoned by its necrotizing fangs?
And whether we choose to look at it as total
insanity, or a divine inspiration, there are a few points that struck me
deeply as I read them:
These two points beg the question,
This the riddle of every peace activist out there, how to stand against something so vile as to never lash out and fight fire with fire.
How can we Obi Wan Kenobi-ify ourselves to
become unstoppable against this empire?
But we cannot do this until we understand the
nature of the reality in which we live and therefore look for the hacks and
loopholes that will allow us to not be vandalized as others might be:
So if we are (in theory) indeed part of a simulated reality, then we must consider what it all really means.
Are the bad guys in your video game coming to
murder you in your sleep? When you die in the video game, does it trouble
you in your Ďreal lifeí?
...but no matter how we see it, there seems to be a consensus that it isnít really REAL; we are here doing something for some purpose (which is up for discussion what that is) and yet our hearts and minds tell us itís not everything that there is to experience.
Our psychedelic experiences show us something
different, our spiritual leaders tell us something different and yet we
cling so hard to this illusion that we canít sleep at night.
You can do impossible things, you can change the
world, but it all begins with yourself. Of course many of you know this and
will scoff that I might be preaching to the choir (Disinfonauts are known to
be really clever!), but I know that if I might need this frequent reminder,
than many others might as well.
I donít know what tomorrow brings, but as long as good people like us are here to bring light to the dark, we are still the winners.
In fact, we win, no matter what; whether
battered and bruised or somehow unscathed. We win. Love wins, truth wins.
Freedom wins. Remember your own power and use it to change our reality.
