Obviously, there is something wrong with humans as a race. The fact that we take, take, take from the wider world without giving back is the prime example. We will destroy anything, even ourselves, to get what it is that we want. We will systematically exterminate subsets of our own species just so we all look alike. Humans believe they are the crown of creation, the final evolution, God’s chosen species. But we are not. That is just something we tell ourselves to justify the evil things that we do to other species and our own species. Before we save the planet, we first need to save ourselves. We need to become emotionally healthy and self-sufficient. If we can’t do that, how are we supposed to get anything else accomplished?
If humans would stop for just one second and look at the desolation and destruction they have caused over the past 10,000 years or so, they would be appalled. But most humans would rather not look. Why not? Because it will reflect in ourselves what we, too, are capable of. We are all capable of such cruel and unusual behavior, it’s just some people are more prone to commit these kinds of horrendous acts. It is either nature or nurture in these cases. It is mostly nurture, I believe, due to this insane world we live in. But it can also be nature in some cases. Some people are simply bad seeds. It is not their fault, nor their parents’ fault. They are born that way. But that is the exception, not the rule.
Most people have to be conditioned thoroughly to commit the horrendous acts that are perpetrated daily on a mass and small scale every day. Some of us aren’t even aware of what we are contributing to. Others knowingly commit crimes of epic proportions to get ahead in life. It is not their fault, though. The system was set up thousands of years ago and it is only recently that it is becoming evident that something is seriously wrong with it. This civilization is pathological and will never stop, even at the expense of itself. We will exploit everything and everyone that can be exploited. I truly cannot see it stopping anytime soon, even when many of our natural resources get scarce. It will become more frantic then, more cutthroat, more devious. But why?
I would argue that the human race was traumatized somewhere between 10,000 and 30,000 years ago by multiple traumas. One of them was the magnetic reversal of the poles, and another was the Ice Age. It is entirely possible we were visited by aliens and they did something to us that traumatized us so badly that we had to invent the ego, which allowed us to get through these tough times. The truth is that we don’t completely know why we got so fucked up, but the important thing is trying to get better. Like I said, we need to fix ourselves before we can fix the world. That is definitely a prerequisite.
There has been this practice called yoga going on for over 5000 years. Yoga takes many forms, and it is a form of cleansing overall. The real question here is: What did we need to be cleansed of in the first place? There had to be something. Something terrible. And something we can only speculate on today, because we truly have no idea. I’m sure somewhere deep down in our DNA we know, but the attempts at explaining this shift in our behavior for the last 10,000 or 30,000 years sometimes gets crazy, like fourth-dimensional lizards messing with our DNA and breeding with some humans to create shape-shifting lizard people who rule the world. Is this scenario possible? Maybe. Is it likely? Highly doubtful. All I know is that this isn’t the life us humans planned for ourselves. There shouldn’t be so much darkness in us, in the world.
Like I said before, it’s anyone’s best guess what happened to us so many thousands of years ago. We truly don’t know because we weren’t there. Our ancestors were there, and they are long dead, and there was no written word when this happened, so how are we to find out? It would really help a lot to know what went on, but I don’t know how that’s going to happen. It’s kind of like a repressed memory that we’ll have to dig out of our subconscious at some point down the road in order to begin the healing process. We used to be one with the Earth, now we are one against the Earth. Something profound has to happen for an event like that to take place. There are a ton of theories about what happened, but how can we know for sure what truly took place? How can we find the origin of the separation from the self and the movement into the ego, which is the cause of all our problems and also what saved us in the beginning?
I’m posing these questions to you. I don’t have any answers, other than the fact that we’re totally bonkers as a species. And that whatever spawned civilization had to be pretty dark, as civilization spawned dark emotions in many, many people throughout history, behaving in such a manner that they have no soul, no empathy, and an addiction to power and control. Why is it that 13 or so bloodlines have most of the power? Or why do they pass laws that makes it illegal to sell or give away food you grow yourself unless the government has its look at it? Why do we need government in the first place when no other species needs it? What the hell made us so selfish in regards to the wider world? These are all questions that are not easy to answer, and may have no definitive answer that we can discern. But it is thinking about it, wondering, that gets us moving in the right direction. And it could possibly lead us to an answer, that would jump-start the healing process to allow for us to finally get over whatever it was that made us this way. Let us pray.
