You can only handle so much ignorance at one time. Like a diabetic that is an alcoholic or a skitzophrenic smoking weed. Philosophers say that what angers you in others you refuse to condemn in your own darkness. It is true yes but sometimes you want to yell and slap people to help them because they are so stupid.
It is not that I am not stupid, I am. I do things that are very stupid, I always have. So how do I stop myself being stupid?
It occured to me once that there are influences. Metaphysically. Spiritually. You can’t just pass this off as your excuse for everything you do but it is an actual force that hinders you, and not just you, everyone.
The evilest things a person does are actions usually, like torture. A human who is not damaged mentally in a severe way would probably not be able to do it to someone. It is this realisation that a normal, functional human usually does not cause horrible attacks upon other people. So why do people?
It is actually completely simple. It is purely the ego. You can think of the ego like a dark force. After a child grows up influenced in a certain way he or she will have certain attributes. If a child is influenced terribly they could become terrible. I am not just talking about their parents or friends either. I am talking spiritually.
I do not consider myself to be religious at all and have a very basic understanding of religion. Though I have experienced darkness and light through my life. It seems to me that by drug abuse or alcohol you are really risking being influenced in a more spiritual way. These substances work on the ego in a negative way generally and allow the ego to gain better control over the mind.
When a person loses control over their ego completely they can do horendous things to others. How funny how a lot of criminals have drug problems. It is no coincidence. I am not saying that every person that takes drugs is going to torture someone but I can really understand how drugs have effected my ego personally. I have a lot more darkness in my life because of them and trauma.
If I had not taken drugs so early in my life things may have been very different for me. I was a very smart child who could learn very very fast. Top of my class. This all went down hill when I took drugs.
So here we have all these young people today on really strong drugs. Weed is stronger than ever (and laced), you have a meth problem, alcohol is out of control, extacy, acid, all the kids are into it, and older ones too. Porn is huge as well and morals are flying out the window, capitalism is winning and people are going for money over values. It does not look good at all. It is not that my generation are much better but the younger generations are even worse. It is a real wonder whats going to happen next when it comes to finding new leaders in society. Who is going to take those positions? Who will be the managers, who will be the CEO’s, the rock stars, the actors, who are these people and what will their values be? Will they be worse than ever, separated from religion completely and the morals it should use to protect us, spirituality free souls with no concept of value of compassion, fueled by greed and money and sex? Is that what is happening? Not to everyone but a lot. This is a crisis. A lot of people are getting hurt. Capitalism is winning. The rich ARE getting richer. There is going to be a civil war. Look at London, Look at France, Germany. It is happening. Two cultures combining in anger. Violence every week. The rich and the poor in danger. It is not safe anymore anywhere, not really. I worry about Earth. It needs some big changes and fast.
