In the last few years, a few of my closest friends have shown a disgust for how I think; when once it seemed that was one of their favorite attributes in my personality.
Perhaps they think that I think that the world is out to get us, or maybe that I have fear of my fellow human. The word conspiracy has that effect on people, on purpose. You are either “in” or “out” of it. Those who stay out of it generally take what they are given verbatim without thinking too much about any of it, and then when the time is right, they regurgitate it in order to protect themselves. It’s safe, it’s something to cling to and gosh darn it four out of five professional/experts/doctors/scientists agree.
Fact: We live in a hierarchical structure of natural power. Humans interpret it as a Hierarchical structure of CONTROL. (In Nature, a large cat could pounce on you and kill you in an instant. In Man Made Control, you know that you don’t want to be killed by a large cat, and therefor you make legislation to limit the amount of cats thereby “humanely hacking Nature” so that you can “protect the human population that is growing into lands that large cats inhabit.” You hire a good looking suit to deal with nitty-gritty nature (just an example of NOT working with nature and focusing solely on self preservation and growth from a safe citizen stand point.)
Why do you think a large cat might kill you, if it isn’t hungry? It knows you are in their territory. Boundaries are real in biology. We kill wild animals like we kill “wild/ undomesticated” humans. We invade and take over and kill the population down until it no longer feels like a threat to the agenda. This shit is real, AND repetitive, folks.
No One becomes something out of nothing. We live within a structure of levels; natural and imposed. If you seek to ascend the levels, whether it is in a gang; tribe, pack, job, corp, MLM scheme, or even government… You gotta pay your dues and the work usually pays off by climbing the ladder. Even our education system is built around passing tests and making the grade.
“Uhm did you even graduate? But, like, did you GET your degree?”
This construct of existence is embedded into us from conception and is further reinforced once we enter the world.
Fact: Hierarchical structures will never lend to equality in any place but Nature, the Natural Way.
When I talk about equality, I am not talking about the subjective definition of “feminism” or Black Lives Matter movement. I am talking about every living being, playing a fair field in survival and consequence. Nature is just as brutal as it is forgiving. We don’t have to tell it what to do *edit*Yet there are things we can do that assist the natural order. YES! Arnica helps with bruises! Yes! Turmeric helps with inflammation and pain. Nature also works with us, the natural organisms existing on it. (That doesn’t mean that humans aren’t trying to find a loophole or hack beyond that. Google Cloud Seeding in Drought Areas. We are in the heyday of humans trying to control the thing that naturally sustains their life without comment or opinion.) This also means that sometimes certain people are struck by lightening more than once. What does it mean when we have a conversation with nature or the world around us, and then integrate it into our present circumstances? The process can actually share a lot of into.
Before there was democracy, there were kingdoms; Matriarchal societies, small tribes, councils, prophets, tribunals, cults and that one asshole snake oil salesman, etc. Each society has taken a stab at trying to control themselves and anyone in eye sight. Even in small sedate groups of friends, you will find an “Alpha” that drives the dynamic. There is a certain order to Nature that man seems to think he can perfect, as to streamline command in times of trouble or discomfort. (Note, usually the drive to do this is incredibly selfish and not at all about the greater collective. The charisma drives the agenda. This is how one good looking and well spoken person, can lead a “revolution” that is purely based on a selfish agenda. If you look good; sound good, have money and press to back you, things can get Gold(en)). Everyone wants to be on the “Sunny Side of the Street.” Currently we are sitting in a spit stew of people who have barreled forward this way. The House Of Cards is Ready to Crumble. Charisma and money are not a Savior.
This is not to say that Hierarchy is wrong; more so, it is to say that this is an unavoidable dynamic in the construct we not only collectively support, but also live in, and with some intro/retrospection, could probably address better as a collective. As it stands, the one with the most money and sponsors wins; they win public opinion; they alter the course of research, and they justify the use, misuse or under-usage of that which belongs to ALL OF THE PEOPLE.
This may seem fair if you find agree-ability to an agenda or personality, but it isn’t fair at all due to the huge disparity of financial equity that holds this structure in place. ( I feel bad for people who send their spare $5 to a candidate that is given thousands if not millions by large corporations. Do you feel like you are actually “contributing”? Of course you feel “invested in a cause” if you send your last five dollars… you are scraping by as-is. That five dollars was the last bit of hope you had wishing for a better future. That must feel futile and draining.)
This dynamic is as old as time and will seemingly continue to play out in repeat until all of us get the clear picture of how this play continues in repeat.
Let me give you an example, since so many people are going to the polls today in places like California.
The program has always been: VOTE! Your VOTE matters! YOU can Make a Difference! Get to those polls!
If you were anything like me, your first time voting, you did some research, got fired up and took to the poll box, only to find that the person you wanted to vote for was not on the ballot. In the state of Wyoming where I took my first vote, they told me “If you write in a candidate, you lose your vote.” (This would lend to my later years of not voting, because, like, am I really losing a vote if I don’t vote? Or am I voting by purposefully stepping out of the game?”)
People are increasingly getting disinterested in the voting aspect of politics because they know it can be hacked, and when your options are limited in a swing state, and you feel vehemently opposed to a candidate it isn’t a (personal) vote of the least offensive. That is the crap about voting, it will always be polarized by the system and finacially supported by backers with the most cash=influence. One that alone an election is always going to be in imbalance.
In that first voting experience I was CRUSHED! I was discouraged from writing in a vote.
I live in a swing state ( Highly influenced by the Electoral College), there was no use in putting in a vote for my choice ( at the time Ralph Nader). I was two months into being 18 and the Presidency had been so hyped up that local politics was drowned out by mainstream division. Despite being crushed, I tried again four years later in the same location, this time, giving the vote to someone on the ballot. G.W.Bush. I wanted my vote to count and I only had two options; not to mention Wyoming is obviously a Red State, and those comments in my first voteable election “shook” me.
During my second vote-able season I was involved in a non-denominational church , our church was on a hill over looking town by the notorious water tower… The night of the election we had bible study; we prayed over our town, while holding hands in a circle praying that GWB would make office. During that prayer my hands were sweating and it felt like a very wrong thing to do. A couple of handfuls later, 9/11 was a reality.
What happens when humans hijack natural hierarchy?
Nature, when left to it’s own devices, does what Nature does. It lives and dies; thrives and regresses, changes and adapts toward its best balance.
When man in his “so-called infinite wisdom”, attempts to dominate natural flow, it all comes back to bite… eventually. I wonder if anyone else feels the pressure of impending pain, but not in the ways we are told it will play out.
I want you to meditate on this, because people immediately assume that if we didn’t have a man made power structure, that we would destroy ourselves or that Nature would take us out. That conclusion in my opinion is only partially true. Let me explain.
Nature seeks balance. Man seeks dominance. There is your TLDR.
Yes, if we relied on Natural Law, people would die. They would die of stupidity, rage and over confidence. They would also die naturally and accidentally like they already do. People would still die the ways they have always died, but maybe even less often given our deathfood/ deathcare system, or maybe more, because it seems like there are a lot of imbalanced people existing in this world. This is not to say that I want people to die; it’s just fact that we all will, eventually. When Nature seeks balance, it actually takes each one of us into account. We don’t always see how that plays out for an individual. A certain amount of trust is asked. You may even call it “faith” or “karma”. Ultimately it is the trust that “everything works out for the best” “even shit can be turned into diamonds”. (it’s all carbon, right?”)
It is to say that I think it is strange that any human could live on earth to be 20-100 years old and think they know better than the Earth knows itself, which has been around for as long as we know based on our biological data. This is to say that despite how long we have been recording data, not one of us still has 100% substantial proof of how things actually operate. (This goes for everything. We know a fraction of what there is to “be known”. Is anyone really an “expert?”) Formulas, Math, Theories and Philosophies are a start, so where does this weird “control matrix” dominate the paradigms?
We can work with the Earth, we can try and work with it the best we can; but history shows it was programmed to ADAPT to almost anything (note, it hasn’t totally disappeared yet), as were humans and other animals/ biological organisms. Our amazing ability to adapt has been both a blessing and a curse, depending on how you look at it. We humans, seem to be the only entities commenting or making opinions about it (unless you follow Channels) The Earth Speaks, no doubt, but it really doesn’t care what you think nor does it take your opinion into account when it does what it does.
In my opinion; I view the Earth to be amazingly resilient and adaptable, full of humor and tragedy. She actually seems like the LEAST LIKELY entity to ultimately self destruct when it comes to planetary biology. People who think that ultimate planetary destruction by the planet’s upset alone have no basis for this planet reaching that end. From what I can tell from history, our planet is SUPER FORGIVING. It seems like a pretty pessimistic and “speck in the dust” kind of attitude to think that Earth is trying to shake us off of it like a disease.
I counter: that this “Man Made Hierarchy” is to blame for attitudes that lend to the aforementioned philosophy. “Man, always thinks he can make everything better.”
“For what would the Earth be, without Man?”
Probably a pretty awesome self sustaining unit of balance.
“But what would Man be, without the Earth?”
Well He, She, It… wouldn’t exist. Tell me again about the Center of the Universe and how we all live out selfish microcosms while neglecting the Macro Cosmic Truth;
None of this exists, as it is, if humans were not part of the equation. Their thoughts, feelings and input would be vacant in this greater space we call “Our Own, Our Home”. Our greater Origin matters in the context of all things relevant in this modern society looking quite defunct under the microscope of function and relation. Seeking in these little hubs of humanity, individuals grasping at balance. Truly asking how they can adapt, change and work with the greater entity that sustains our fragile lives.
In Natural Law, the greatest power in construct, is CREATION itself. The cosmic conscious pattern of play that is the overlay that creates the reality we call reality, either subjectively or objectively. We become the centers of our own Universe by the construct of our minds. We either agree or disagree on major and minor points, but at the end of the day we each have to go to bed with ourselves and our personal views.
In my observation, the Macro and Micro always reflect and somehow come back to center. It is not chaos, it is not unorganized or random/coincidental. Everything, Every Thought, Every Action follows a pattern that can be observed as above (telescope) or so below (microscope) and is filtered through a slit experiment of observation and opinion; further filtered by logic, rhetoric and reasoning. There is no room for name calling (ad hominems), this isn’t a place for Devils advocate. These are equal organisms sharing a home looking to support the best function and structure of the Home.
99% of what you think you should care about, doesn’t actually matter. The 1% that matters, if you pay attention to it and tend to it, will ripple in effect 100 fold.
“Fix Yourself before you Try and Fix Others.”
When you fix your home, you feel more comfortable. When you feel more comfortable, others immediately feel more comfortable with you, and doubly so when they are in your home. Your body is your home. Your mind is your home, your house is your home… your Earth is your home. Treat yourself the way you would have others treat you. Treat your home or Earth the way you would have others treat it. We are all seeking a certain amount of Trust. It is a basis for strong foundations.
Fact: We learn by example.
This speaks for itself. Be conscious of those who influence you, and be aware of how you influence others. Be true to yourself, and seek Truth to share.
You may call conspiracy on me but the only conspiracy is silence and lies.
I’d love to start a podcast, or just continue writing on this topic, but the lash back from close people is hard. Perhaps you are a follower and like topics like this… hit me up, send a donation, like the post or leave a comment.
I love the interaction and would love to see more of it.
Peace be with you beautiful people.
