can money save us from people who make more of it than us ?
doesn't seem logical
other than a collective change of consciousness and self-image, im not sure what else would bring us to "where we need to be"
as a whole we need to stop thinking its natural to sin
stop thinking we are animals
stop thinking war is necessary
drop the attitude of nothing's perfect....
anything that is complete is perfect - there are countless examples -
if i buy a spoon from the store - that object is perfect for its purpose
though most people have no direction, no purpose
even those who claim their purpose is to serve god, will place sensual gratification above it - without choice because god is a mystery to them
their sole purpose in life is to relieve sensual tension - usually through any (irrational) means necessary - a true savage in pursuit of happiness
so basically - the average person needs to realize his/her potential
once one's self-image is changed to that of a positive one (god, in place of the animal self-image) all good things will naturally emanate from that.
HOW to effect that change is some whole other shit though - I wouldn't even be sure where to start
and I'm not so certain there aren't people who are so lost in their emotional attachments that they can't make that change. What do you do with them ....?
(I guess these posts are limited to 1000 characters)
doing what we are doing is a start - we are discussing it - do the other members here not see the importance of discussing these things ?
that inner war that you are talking about is just that - an inner war - i never met anyone who had their lower self fully in submission
^^ in response to Mumm Ra's last post.
Money is not even important. It can't save us. But yeah change needs to come from the inside. Helping others change comes from example and encouragement, but not by force.
"i never met anyone who had their lower self fully in submission"
no doubt, me either by no means
but i think only good things can come from striving for that
while we may see the blessings inherent in the struggle you describe, others are not so easily swayed. as you said, they have formed an emotional attachment to a cipher counter to the clock's natural movements.
our best weapon is our example, we will be judged by our actions and most of our words lost on cabbage, lettuce and corn.
"our best weapon is our example"
is that our BEST weapon tho?
i mean 85% wont even recognize the example
is that the only thing we can do? we'll be forever outnumbered
although i think a lot of us need to be more verbal than just an example -
i know i have that problem -
i draw a lot of attention on my example alone - though i find im apprehensive about infringing on other's way of life - even if i find it totally sideways
but sometimes a militant stance has to be taken
if we have words and actions then we have knowledge and wisdom, the cornerstone of Divine Mathematics.
Actions always speak louder than words and the just are judged by their actions as well. While I understand your apprehension (I feel it as well) I will not let this form of fear stop me from speaking and acting on what I know to be right and exact.
Like you said, this is war. We battle not against flesh and blood but principalities...
