Being open and human in a severely flawed society

 

We the Human animal are a higher mammal, we are a life form, not the only life form. We have no more right to be here than any other animal, or indeed any other life form.

For humanity and all life on earth to survive, we must be in balance with the environment and the rest of life on the planet, not selfishly using our power to control life and use the planet only as a resource to be plundered purely for our own benefit.

The political leadership of our western cultures are in my opinion valuing the wrong things, they are corrupted and misdirected.

The majority of us, generally rule our lives through fear and all aspects of ego, driven by self interest, status, all is allowable for profit.

I would consider the following quotation by Krishnamurti a revealing one.

“It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a sick society”.

Of course there are many people who are walking towards the light, that is working to create and maintain a balance with nature, but until humanity changes what we value, it will be a difficult and thank less task, only made bearable by seeing others working towards the same end.

My posts are simply my perspective offered in the spirit of discovery, exploration and empowerment – take what resonates with you and leave the rest.
