By now it should be apparent to most; humanity is at war. Although the enemy looks like us, they are not human; they are psychopaths. We actually have an intra-species enemy in our midst.
The influence these creatures have had on the trajectory of human evolution cannot be understated. They are parasites who have managed to infest our power structures and are operating today as the ruling class. And, to carry out their parasitical predation this cabal of psychopaths tries to regulate our every move and tax us into poverty. They not only want to control our bodies but they want to corrupt our minds too.
This intra-species enemy has an invested interest in impairing the human’s ability to choose right from wrong. As rulers they promote messages of hate so that we keep fighting and killing one another. Their aim is to ensnare us in their evil web of lies and destruction. They do not want us thinking clearly about how to achieve healthy relationships.
These psychopaths need humanity to be in continual confusion and chaos for fear that we wake up to the very real threat that they pose to our species. And, in order to promote their madness this ruling class has taken control of the mass media. By regulating the messages humanity receives, these psychopaths get to broadcast their twisted interpretations to the masses.
There are consequences to being out of touch with reality; it threatens a creature’s ability to negotiate the demands of living. And, in the case of Homo sapiens this vulnerability also affects our species’ ability to make contact with the Almighty Creator.
A human primate is situated in a milieu of complex interdependency. In the quest for adaptation, he must learn how to successfully negotiate this set of circumstances. For this reason, the human needs to become aware of the emotional features of his personality. He needs to gain insight into how his bestial nature interferes with his ability to address the task at hand.
Because our species has been granted freewill, we can be introspective. By choosing to monitor our own subjective frame of reference, we can learn to manage all sorts of useless moods and selfish impulses that distort our thinking. Freewill then, allows us to downplay our self-centered viewpoint so that we can behave in a more principled fashion. And, by learning to address the demands of our interconnectedness in this manner, we get to activate our capacity for conscience.
This flowering of conscience not only equips the individual to choose between right from wrong. It is a sign that the human has actually changed the way his cerebral cortex fires. An egocentric view has been replaced with a more expansive mind set in which fear and never-ending desire no longer plague his thinking.
Each human primate experiences this burgeoning of conscience differently. However, along the journey to becoming a human being one must give birth to a conscience. The human’s self-preservation reflex must be replaced with a deeper appreciation for the organic predicament in which he finds himself. It is as Jesus Christ pointed out: "No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again".
Let’s be clear. The development of conscience is about provoking actual changes in the way the brain perceives reality. This inner transformation puts the ego in its proper place; and, that is crucial if one is to experience the grandeur of The Almighty Creator who dwells within all. Humility then, is the prerequisite for gaining insight into what Jesus knew when he claimed: “The kingdom is inside of you. And it is outside of you.”
It is as we are told in the first book in the Bible. Man has been “created in the image and likeness of God”. Nowadays this perennial message of the mystics has been translated to make it palatable for modern man. Reassuringly we are told that humans are “spiritual beings having a human experience”. The part conveniently left out is the fact that your pet is also spirit having a cat experience. By leading us to believe our species enjoys an elevated status in the universe, we never have to come face to face with the stark reality and terror of our human existence.
Do not be fooled. Communion with the One and Only Almighty Creator does not come about without a humbling of the ego. There is little hope we will get the spiritual connection we desire as long as we avoid the inner work required of us. That is why Jesus warned “For the body is a domestic animal. Therefore, you must go about perfecting yourself.”
