“We have in fact, two kinds of morality, side by side: one which we preach, but do not practice, and another which we practice, but seldom preach.” ~ Bertrand Russell
Take a walk. Take in the air you breath. Take in the sights of nature and how it functions. Then ask yourself one simple question to give it perspective. Could I have created this? Dose your brain even compute the possibility of what life truly is? Are you aware that you are a product of a larger mind? I am not telling you to get down on your knees prostrate. I am telling you to open you mind to the actuality of not having all the answers. When are you going to stop and think about the vast multiverse, and the actual galaxy we inhabit and how we came to be?
While you are off playing god with your ego driven search for the answer. An answer that once you find it you realize you have not even a clue what questions to ask to find the source of your initial thought that began the quest. You can tinker away in your lab or theorize in your philosophy. However, your quest manifest itself you are usually landing back where you started. The truth is light years away and even if we are fast enough to get there (Random planet) before our life force expires. I am beginning to think that will lead to another journey. A journey back home.
Time has certainly shown us the truth and that truth has been revealed. In vain pursuit we wish to ignore it. We are the product of a larger picture. One that is not our place to have all the answers. The answer is staring us right in the face in a paradoxical way we refuse to accept it.
We dream of seeing God before we die and we die to see God, and in turn end up trying to play God to control the outcomes that said God has already put in place. Such as any sport or game, there are rules in which to abide, or the game is not fun and can cause chaos or hatred if played against the principles and rules. We are in the gamification of thought. We are the mind, and the mind is us. Our freedom to choose to obey the natural laws of life and human interaction is what pushes us to succumb to the ideas of a lesser conscience. Our integrity moves from us and our need to be the winner, cause us to succumb to the darker aspects of our being.
There is no truth to be found in a lie. Once it is tainted; it ceases from being reality. It has a life of its own. It becomes a mirage that once you get closer you realize there is no chance to quench your thirst. Seeking outside yourself to find what you already possess is an endless journey because you are looking in the wrong place. The journey must happen within for us to even begin to fathom what is beyond the skyline and whether we should embark on such a journey.
What I do know is that we can’t take the same mindset. How, would the universe allow us to destroy two worlds. We are searching for meaning because deep down we are afraid of the end. The end is the beginning of something no one has returned to tell us about. We are destined to not know in the temporal. To enjoy your life is to live it by supporting the honest possibilities. To grow within the rules not outside of them.
By consistently growing outside the rules, we continue to create chaos that manifest continuously through time. When has a world been so corrupted that it vanquishes any possibility of utopian fruit? The balance is good vs evil, the understanding is that this is balance, what is vs what is not. Correct? What we should do against what we should not do. With our perpetual state of discomfort, we are living through the results of us choosing from the; they should not do pile as our task mandates and now we must fight perpetual wars to uphold any good we tried to extract from the outcome and call ourselves good.
From Pandemics, to economics we have chosen the side of what makes us look good while our infrastructure crumbles regardless of what is right. We apply Band-Aids when we know for sure there should be a surgery based on the diagnoses of the condition. However, we seek power and fortune over right and sustainable. Dystopia is a symptom that does not have to exist. We are the ones who would create the conditions that would deem anything in such condition. The end is the beginning, and the beginning is the end. What we chose to do with the present will determine the result of the human experience. History has already proven outcomes when one does not take heed to the warning signs.
The reality we are in now is a result of our moral code. What we aimed for with extraordinarily little regard for the erratic nature of the negative. We allowed politics and power to determine something that could care less about politics and power. Ethics always win. The war against ethics is futile. Ethics has the tools to try our hand every time. History has taught us this much.
