alone because many people I talk to still
feel it’s hopeless. The
question (in my mind at least) is no longer can we save ourselves but what
the process that must be followed in order to make the lasting changesneeded to not only survive but grow and prosper. Make no mistake about
what I’m saying;
there will be pain
no matter what we do or don’t do
. Butthere is pain during healing as well as pain during destruction and we have achoice.

The answers are deceptively simple, which makes it difficult for most peopleto accept when we
ve been conditioned to believe that complexity requirescomplex solutions. Nothing could be further from the truth. When one findsthey
ve dug themselves into a hole, the first rule to follow is to stop digging.Since we
ve been trained all our lives that digging
s what we do
, it’s almost
heretical to ponder anything else. Considering how our narrow view benefits
certain select “others”
we should question everything we believe
stopped digging and are looking for a way out.As with all my work, I ask the reader to consume it i
n it’s entirely, in the
order presented and to leave all sections in context. I
’ve broken this
essayinto multiple parts (5 at this point) for easier consumption. But it really
doesn’t work unless it’s
read as a continuous thought process. So I suggestyou read each section in order because
this isn’t 5
independent articles, butrather one article broken into 5 separate pieces.
Each section won’t
make sense on its own unless you’ve read the
preceding sections. Even then it might not make any sense,
but I’m only
responsible for my insanity.
You’re on your own.
This silliness started out asa one or two page blurb but quickly morphed into Godzilla like proportions.Consider it the insane leading the insane and have some fun whileexpanding your mind.May I also suggest that you read each section twice, something I usually dowhen reading anything new? Reading it the first time trips all the objectionsmy ego comes up with, which exposes my deep conditioning andindoctrination. My ego always defends my consciousness from the inevitablecognitive dissonance I experience when I read something that contradictswhat I think I believe.
