The human race is exhausted. Human behavior has reached its maximum capacity for ridiculousness. The only thing left seems unfathomable. Yet, the abyss looms large and tangible enough in the corner of our eye to keep us moving away from it, toward something… anything that is better than THIS.
Look out your window and see there is very little in the world that has been created by man that is of practical value. In spite of documents signed and millennium goals set, we are still mired in the age-old constructs that perpetuate conflict and human suffering.
Whether you are gazing out into your own backyard or the world at large, it seems that much of humanity is still grid-locked in a state of survivalism and competition for access to basic necessities such as food, water, shelter, healthcare and education–even in the industrialized nations.
When we expand our gaze, we see that the Earth is abundant enough to feed, house and even nurture a population of this size. We see our own capacity to mirror nature through working together cooperatively to create a renewable and sustainable way of existence, in harmony with all of Life around us that is inclusionary rather than exclusionary.
Further, something does appear to be happening. In addition to the announcement of one of the most important scientific discoveries in recent history, human consciousness is undergoing a shift so profound; the proof can be seen with the naked eye.
THE END OF HOPE
The intent here is not to bring you hope. Hope is the last thing humanity needs at this, “the hour of our death.” The intent is to dash every hope you’ve ever had so that you may finally be able to move beyond the idea of hope into something more substantial, something more powerful, NOW; though no more physical.
With half the world still mired in war and poverty and the “good” half amidst economic collapse, you may find yourself down on your knees pleading for miracles on your behalf or the behalf of those you love.
Perhaps instead, in a collapse of faith, you find yourself looking skyward with tears in your eyes in hurt and confusion. How could He continue to allow such suffering in the world? In fact, is it not getting worse?
No doubt you have begun to ask questions–perhaps for the first time in your life. If you were raised under the flag that blind faith rather than inquiry is the path to Heaven, now is the time to ask yourself, “Can I absolutely be sure of that?”
For this is no ordinary inquiry. This inquiry will turn you upside down and inside out. You will be asked to question everything you hold dear and think you know to be true–even who you are relative to the world. Even… GOD.
