Low Latent Inhibition Effect.
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
People have been asking where I have been and why I haven't posted. Winter for me this year was productive.
I have met so many extraordinary people. Kind people who I lodged with, went camping with, and even had the privilege to teach a few things to (open mindedness and alternative living). They happened to show me a thing or two themselves :) I have been recently staying at a good friends house here in Fort Wayne. It took me a little while to recover from some internal disputes within myself and an infection I had in an impacted wisdom tooth. If not for that, I would be in South Milwaukee right now. Maybe even the east coast. After it was all said in done, I can say I'm content with staying in Indiana. For now that is. I almost, almost considered the idea of cleaning some offices to get my tooth fixed. Then I thought to myself, my tooth will worry about itself. It's summertime! There is adventure to be had.
Since my lifestyle change, I never touched base on here about the core trigger to my awakening.
Here is the story:
In 2003, I was living in the Monroeville Indiana trailer park at that time. I decided to smoke some marijuana one Saturday evening. Not a lot, just enough to get the effects for a relaxed evening. Nothing unusual for me at the time. I stepped outside and sat on the deck out in front of my family's dwelling when a vision flashed before my eyes! I stepped out onto the sidewalk and it happened at once. All of the mobile homes and vehicles parked on the road started to rust immediately. The rusty homes and vehicles broke down into mere piles of rusty scrap, simply fading away all together. The street lamps popped and fell down, reducing them into mere shavings and dust. Everything began to make since now.
The road preceded to crack and splinter away with grasses, herbs, and trees sprouting through it. Small streams formed through this newly awakened oasis. Fish and life-providing water for the plants and animals spawned out of an instantaneous time lapse, creating a beautiful and abundant paradise. Robins and kill deer flew overhead while animals roamed and scurried below. Unrestricted. Deer, beaver, mink, squirrel, were all living in harmony with plenty of natural resources to be consumed and used. Natural and sustainable. Without competition. Then people ventured into this oasis. All living in harmony. No competition, but coexisting. Sharing items, everyone had enough and excess was non-existent. There was nothing to condition anyone to rob or cheat each other. No idea of ownership. As I projected upward, I could see that this wasn't just happening here, but all over the earth. Unlike anything I have ever experienced, we were in a sort utopia. One not seen by man since the primitive era. As I projected even further up, I could see our planet in the solar system, the galaxy, galaxy clusters, and the universe. After viewing all of this, I returned to a normal state of mind, but I was forever changed. For the first time, everything was transparent to me.
I knew what it meant to deny this life.
We are such a small part of existence itself, but yet we worry over insignificant things that aid us none and have no true value. What has true value? The earth. Nature, our ecosystem, which provides us with life, the way the universe intended. Not just human life, but all life is sacred. As well as the ground we walk upon. If we would acknowledge this, treat our resources responsibly, with humble pride, no one would ever need or want again. We have all been herded into using our current system, tricked into relying upon it and tricked into defending it, even though it is unsustainable and will one day destroy our planet. Along with us since are a part of nature after all.
What does the future hold for humanity? Even more so, what does it hold for the planet?
I don't believe we should all smash our computers, move into the woods, eat tree bark and play Tarzan. Honestly quite the contrary. Through my vision experience I ask this: If we treat not just others the way we want to be treated, but the entire planet, what would be left to inhibit real progress? What would exist to cause, not superficial suffering, by things like lack of luxuries, but, actual suffering? The idea of Profit. Which triumphs over all rationality and will continue to do so until there is nothing left to harvest. Greed, ownership, power, the same.
If you get anything from this rant at all, then my work here is complete. If not, I can still say the very same, for I am content.
