Weight of the World (cont.)
By Jason Gregory
In our present day the weight of the world is not a physical disability, but instead it is psychic in nature. Almost everything we visualize in our external world stems from our collective psychic illness. Buddha once said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.” This piece of wisdom rings true when one understands the total functions of the mind. One of the innermost fundamental principles of consciousness is that everything in our world either on a personal or collective level is a deep mental projection. So what we create in our reality is either from conscious concentration or it is from a darker emotion suppressed within the human psyche. This is very important to understand especially at this moment in time, because even though some people out there are consciously manifesting reality, most of these people still haven’t addressed the darker content in their own lives, and hence we all contribute to a collective disease. All of this comes back to the psychic dance between the ego and the self. This dance can truly seduce the most ardent believer. A lot of people on Earth at the moment believe they are in true rebellion against the banking cartel, corporate structure and corrupt governments, with the belief they are creating a better world. The seduction here is that this rebellion is only a projection of our ego. The ego does this to keep anyone from having true eternal rebellion. Since the ego is the totality of the mind at present, it will do whatever it has to do from letting you go inwardly and finally dealing with those darker emotions suppressed within the shadow-self. So because of this, what is happening now is the ego is disguising itself under a false projection of a better world to further its own existence and to keep us from the true journey.
In our present day many activists, movements and rebellious groups are rising to the surface, but none of this is new. We have always had opposition to the status quo, but never any lasting change. For thousands of years we have been in external conflict with no true results. This is because we choose not to shine the light within where true freedom resides, so we persist with rearranging the chess pieces in the world we see. So it is with our illusory belief that we can change the external chess pieces that our illness is sustained. Herein lays the problem behind all movements and revolutions, because we believe to heal this world we need to rearrange the external world. If this is the basis then all movements and revolutions are fundamentally flawed. Sure a new movement may look more pleasant to the eye, but if the same collective and individual psychological state is going into the new world then our sickness will still plague us. In the end it should not be a debate about what certain benefits or external relief we will have from any particular movement, because the only issue that should be of our concern is what truly drives any of these movements or revolutions deep within us?
