It’s a question of “trust”…
Who should I trust and why? As in – what do I base my trust of “other people” on?
Most people today are not trusting of others. For any number and list of “good” and valid reasons.
So…it is astonishing to me that a great majority of folks suspend their instinctual “trust” compass when it comes to “authority” figures of any stripe or station.
If you don’t trust the man that knocks at your door, or the woman that speaks sweet nothings into your ear, or pretty much anyone you come into contact with on a daily basis — why would you turn over your entire life and family’s well-being to figments on TV, in a periodical or newspaper, or via any media format whatsoever? Be they in uniform, in expensive suits, or veiled in any garb whatsoever; how is it you suspend your disbelief and allow them to dictate your responses and actions? Is this not counter to every instinctual reaction and experiential lesson you have learned throughout your life?
You and Yours end up where You Are in direct relation to the amount of the “World” you allow to affect You.
Most of what comes our way is out of our control. Much of what goes on WE cannot impact, except in the way we personally conduct our own lives. There are immutable Laws-of-the-Universe which are acting all around us continuously. We either harmonize or buck the physics of our existence.
At some point, when we “mature”, we learn to rely on ourselves, and perhaps a “higher power” which we have come to know by experience, trial, and much error. If we do not hold to the “higher power” concept, then WE – are very much On Our Own on this journey.
Ceding our individual “Wills” to any other is one of the most serious actions we take on our journey. Most learn early on, that “Trust” is “Earned”.
With this in mind, if boggles my mind to see such a great number of people cede their only self-protective mechanism (which they are born with, as in the concept of inherent and immutable personal “Freedom”) to other individuals or “systems” with nary a thought on the matter?
If I should watch like a hawk my home, my children, my capital, and my health, why would I entrust it all to digitalized figments dictating their thoughts to me? When I open my mind to them uncritically, I am obviously “opening the door” and letting them into my mind, my family, my present and future, no?
This short essay, or whatever you want to call it, is meant to Wake People Up to what they are doing to themselves and all that is “theirs” by allowing Others to govern their very existence. Should not every individual be wary at all times? When has “Safety & Peace” ever existed in your lifetime? I have not seen it, nor never hope to on this Earthly plain.
We can not afford to be “Stupid” and “Ignorant” and “Trusting”…of anybody or anything. You don’t “vote” for someone else or some system to take over your personal responsibility of watching out for yourself and your family. You should never, ever “trust” someone else or a system that soaks up everything about you, but divulges nothing about itself. This is Obvious.
So, be critical. Be wise and get Wisdom if you lack. Trust nothing and no one that comes in through the backdoor, in the darkness of secrecy, and offers smooth sayings for you to lay down your guard, lay down your weapons, lay down your survival instincts, lay down your very individuality and personal freedoms of the pursuit of Life, Liberty, and Happiness.
We live in the time of corruption and myriad deceptions perpetrated upon mankind and this very world. If this is news to you, then you have not been paying attention.
Let Trust be earned. “By their actions you will discern their character”. If you cannot acquire or be presented with enough valid information to make truly informed decisions, then you must remain wary and on guard. Is this not Obvious? Deeds shrouded in “Secrecy” mean they cannot stand the light of exposure or Truth.
Why should and would you bet your life and the lives of your family on “these people”? Being that they are “far removed” from the locale and life you lead every day, and in fact operate “above-the-law”, or certainly outside anything you would be held to; then why would you put an ounce of trust in “them”?
The 1% do not know you exist except as dirt upon the floor they would never touch. They have maids and hirelings, servants, to deal with everything below their “status”. Yes, I’m making a point. There is a “class system”, and you’re not in it. This is one of the most glaring and prevailing problems today. And the Gap gets wider by the second.
You see — there are 2 boats. There is the dilapidated boat, barely a barge that humanity is floating in, and there are the ridiculously obscene yachts the 1% speeds around in. You should be able to guess how this has come about. It is time Humanity comes about, and faces the pirates down.
The World is in dire need of Truth. Without “The Truth and Nothing But The Truth”, WE must assuredly suspect chicanery and criminality is afoot.
