I’ll mostly write my Youtube comment here. It is important to not happily stumble into more of the same folly, and that video bothers me a lot. It’s like a bullshit indoctrination commercial for more of the same insanity. I guess that it was basically funded by Bill Gates speaks for itself.
0:59 Everything changed with the industrial revolution? LOL! Zero sum/positive sum is all in the mind and it never changed because the people with power were and are still craving more, more, MORE as always. And it’s still zero sum if there’s just a temporary growth, if the sum cannot grow indefinitely and sustainably. This is exactly the mind’s folly that keeps perpetuating the problems. The solution is not “positive sum”, but ‘doesnmattersum’. Transcending the thinking that creates the problem.
1:50 More of this BS, claiming the growth of prosperity is continuing today when we see violent conquest and mass theft of all kinds as a way of life for certain countries. (Also, I guess once someone dies, they fall out of the statistic of how many things people own, hah.)
3:03 And there we see that what’s called “positive sum world” is just a choice of what speed of change to label as such and what not. Again, it’s an attitude and perception thing. With the speed of change came more pressure by the limited ‘confines’ of this planet and more total power of greed, so guess what the bottom line is: same. No change to society if it’s all external. But back then we had the same problems, and since there were less people living on the planet, it was just as foolish and sick. Or did we forget the rule of monarchs in their lavish castles and the miserable poverty among the People? Without that crap you could go and call those times a positive sum world. But since we still have that crap today, I don’t see a distinction as valid.
Videos like this emerge from minds too enamoured by science and technology and not enough by spirituality. (And I don’t mean the label, the mass culture, I mean the looking inwards, the very personal, the part where you actually discover your own bullshit.)
4:30 Oh yeah of course, now the cancer cure clichée. – Billions of dollars have been flowing and are still flowing into developing new lucrative treatments while dodging the cures. Raising people’s financial power against cancer doesn’t drive cures, but treatments, unless the People stop being tools, which I don’t see happening because the masses are way too emotionally convenient and are sometimes rather willing to die than to give up a convenient belief that makes them sick.
Gist of the video: ‘We need more money for the existing system! More money for everybody will solve everything!’ – so frickin’ naive and insane. In part because it is imagining a reality that cannot even come to pass because of the very system that is being glorified in the video.
It’s not the first time I hear something like this, exploiting an incident for incitement and personal commentary. For a news speaker such language should be forbidden, but it shows how much they have become propaganda speakers for the establishment.
People allow themselves such transgression because THEY are cowards and are trying to distract from that, by rallying against their nemesis. Standards of proper conduct and professionality are thrown out the window when people think they can get away with it, because it’s popular and because peer pressure tries to stifle critique of that mainstream.
This shows how troubled our society is and how the demons we fight originate in us.
Cowardice is rooted in existential fears and its derivatives. Calling someone a coward who is deliberately giving up their life … well, as I said, that’s what cowards do who refuse to understand the real causes that drive people to such ultimate self-sacrifice, because then they would have to see their own responsibility and involvement, and that is inconvenient, and cowards fear personal inconvenience.
Speaking of a “cowardly terror attack” is barking from the cheap seats, self-importance from the safety of peer support. It is only a small step away from a news speaker saying “Those evil barbarian enemies of all that is good need to be eradicated”, and things have moved in that direction and still do. The example in the title is not the most extreme case of an ignorant inciteful mindset I have witnessed.
People with some spine don’t kick downwards, but punch or at least look upwards, towards the source of collective suffering, the influential war-mongering psychopaths. They are given power through the convenience of fear, through cowardice, through refusing to confront your inner demons and thus manifesting them in the world through your denial-fueled actions.
You either become a common rabble puppet of the age-old game of divide-and-conquer or you find some courage and hone your character. And if these words upset you or create antagonistic thoughts, then that’s where you need to start that work. And that involves the most scary thing: opening your heart. Because the heart is not just the source of true kindness, but also of courage. Mind without heart is nothing but fear. It makes you ascend in the ranks of those who further the suffering in the world, which you will then call being successful.
Unconditional love is like the love a writer has for their characters. One character might be a villain, or a rude asshole, but they love them anyway, since they enjoy their creation. They are essential pieces in great storytelling.
This is why people usually only experience this unconditional love when they manage to connect to the divine. Because they’re totally not used to it due to lack of exposure, since so few people practice it. But the divine is all about enjoying its creation in its totality. It does nothing but love unconditionally, and that is enough to bring things into existence. It doesn’t play favorites; That’s why anything can happen.
Man says: “Why is this allowed to happen?”
God says: “Why not?”
Man says: “People are suffering.”
God says: “How could it be any other way?”
Man says: “No suffering. Everybody happy.”
God says: “You will get there. Why so impatient?”
Man says: “I don’t want to suffer anymore.”
God says: “Then I cannot allow you to happen.”
Suffering ends when you realize you are one with God. But that can only happen if you accept your separation from God.
Which means loving life unconditionally.
You accept the separation and it allows you to do that, and doing that confirms the unity.
