If something here makes you angry or sad or both – let’s talk about it. That’s what we do where I’m from. Because we want to grow… and we’re mature enough to own our shit.
Our society is a fucking mess.
Never mind politics or economics or the environment.
Just look around you.
Everyone is either fat or miserable or fat and miserable.
Everyone is in a deep sleep, ruled by fear and sex and politics and economics.
And all over the Internet are articles about “The Inner Goddess” or “The Divine Masculine”.
Really? How about we learn to be fucking human first?
How about we learn to feed the hungry, take care of the sick, raise our children properly, birth our children naturally, cherish our elders?!
How about we stop the industrialised ‘factory farming’ of our animal cousins? How about we stop experimenting on them? Hunting them to extinction?
Please take your spirituality and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine because I’m sick and fucking tired of finding out again and again that the people who claim to be ‘spiritual’ are the ones wearing the biggest masks.
What is this ‘spirituality’ anyway?
All is spirit. There is nothing but spirit.
Saying that you’re spiritually inclined is a bit like a fish declaring a predilection for water.
We’re swimming in it, and the problem isn’t that we’re not spiritual enough.
The problem is that we don’t know what we are.
Stop paying ‘lip service’ to Spirit.
Stop being a voyeuristic consumer. Stop it.
Stop buying things you don’t need, stop wasting your precious time in jobs and relationships you don’t believe in, stop playing along with a system that you know is totally broken.
Have the courage to step out of this utterly corrupt and dysfunctional system and create a new system.
Unleash the creator within.
Because the solution is in YOU.
And if not now, then when? ~ Ben Ralston
Ben Ralston, I don’t know you but if you write and think and teach like this very often, you’re my new hero.
