If it had been proven that being politically correct was a solution to the problems we face on this planet, I would have employed its ‘diplomacy’. It wasn’t. There are times when diplomacy is necessary, despite the idiots you may find yourself facing. And diplomatic means that you speak your mind with regard for your person and respect for another’s intelligence. It does not mean that you lie. When diplomacy goes out of the window it is a sure sign that the shit is going to hit the fan. When that fan is my face, you will know about it. Every single one of you.
I am certain that political correctness had good intentions. It was meant to dress up the mess of this planet in ribbons and bows for those whose sensitivity had already correctly identified it. That was perhaps a kind gesture. It was, though, counter-productive. It showed contempt for the people who have been listening to a ‘truth’ with the view of finding solutions. That this was in part unintentional – given that those who were preaching the bullshit did not know they had a sympathetic audience – is the only aspect that makes their lies acceptable. And white lies are called white lies for a reason. That is not to say that they are the only lies there are.
For those who may not know or understand political correctness for what it is, it is cowardice. Avoidance. It becomes a debilitating habit of telling a people what you think they want to hear instead of starting dialogue that addresses the real problems we all face. That can be as a result of the ‘partriarchal complex’ rife on this planet – one that we have been conditioned to accept. The belief that men are obligated to be the protectors on this planet. Not all of them are. Those that are not natural-born protectors – those who have misrepresented themselves as saviours – will be the ones who lie to you about your reality. They will do this for two reasons: either to save face, or to conceal their weaknesses, their actual inefficacy.
The way you go about your daily business identifies for you who you are. The nuances in your behaviour are clear indicators of how it is to be you, and why it is that you bother. There is always a reason to bother being yourself. As we have heard countless times before, there is no one that can do that better than you can. It can be interesting at times to watch other people try. It can be extremely irritating, too, especially when they will perpetually fuck it up. Once you have identified your true self you will not need to put up with pretence. Not from yourself, and not from others.
There are those in our midst that are trained identifiers. That means they have learned how to see what is in front of their eyes. It would make sense as an identifier to trust your first instincts. They are usually the right ones. It also makes sense to identify a positive rather than a negative. Like it is preferable to meet the truth in a person than it is to make excuses about the lies they use to conceal their real. What on earth is the point of dealing with what is unreal?
When you find that you can accurately identify your every aspect – and for some people that takes a very long time – you will find the ‘inner peace’ that you seek. Until you have identified and accepted your entire being, your past misdeeds and concealments, your basic building blocks – that ‘peace’ will seem to elude you. You can chase peace around in circles for eternity – it is notoriously skittish. If you cannot take on board everything that you are, we are, then there can be no real peace on this planet. If peace is contrived, it is not authentic – and then calling it ‘peace’ is pointless. What does a word mean if it has no substance? Until you show unconditional love for yourself, your fellow earthlings and the vast expanse that is our collective unconscious, peace will forever be one step ahead of our efforts.
Revolutions are occasionally necessary, despite their untimely arrival. The hows and whys of their happening are perhaps obvious to some, to others their actuality is a surprise. A revolution can be a pleasant surprise. It can also cause a nightmare for those who will circumvent change. Change comes when it is ready. It cannot be subverted. It can be delayed, naturally, but it cannot be prevented. Change inspires fear in the hearts of those who need the order of the old establishment to conceal their misdeeds. Misdeeds are misdeeds – they stand out in the barren landscape of inescapable lies. Lies are lies – nothing can hide their devastation from the truth.
Some people would prefer not to have to revolve. Or evolve, it would seem. That is unfortunate when those people have no choice. Some will go around and around and around, for eternity. Others will pull their particular revolution straight and leave themselves an open passage to the future. There will always be a future if you choose to believe that it exists. Knowing it exists is one thing, the other is finding it. If you do not know at this point where you are in your own future then it would be safe to say that you probably won’t have one to speak of. If you were alive inside your future you would not have to find it – and nor would you still be searching. You would instead be sitting – and waiting.
The purpose of any revolution is to show you something new. New is interesting, no matter how you may feel about it personally. You can be part of a revolution or you can stand on the sidelines and watch it roll by. Either way it will happen. Revolutions don’t tend to ask for permission. They always come at exactly the right time. They know what their work is and they know why it needs doing. Revolutions are worth the effort needed to set them in motion. When they are successful, they take ideas and their people to new places.
We have all used them. We have all needed them, it would seem, to survive. This world is made that way. People have been lying to save their skins since time immemorial. I suppose if you lie to save your life you can always hope that it was worth it. Your life, that is.
It is said that people lie out loud, on average, four times every twenty-four hours. I doubt whether that includes the myriad lies people tell themselves all day long – those need counting as well. It would appear that a lot of people feel far safer behind a wall of lies than they do out in the wide open, where reality is happening. That is a pity. A wall of lies is hardly a stronghold. It can be knocked down with one – or two – simple truths. The truth, as simple as it is, is where the ultimate power lies. Everybody knows that.
Lies destroy. They build, yes – bullshit castles in the sky – but their real purpose is to destroy. That is unfortunate when you consider what lies are actually destroying. It is no good thing when the voice of reason we have been conditioned to hear does not speak to us honestly. Reason in itself has always been problem enough, but at least when it was decided that reason was going to ‘lead’ the way, the age-old deciders should have ensured that reason was truth. Unfortunately, lying for a living bent reason sideways and it has never straightened itself out.
You are what you learn. If an animal learns cruelty from a human, whether in life or in death, its wild will become ferocious. That an animal has enough self-control to perform tricks in a circus without killing the ringmaster is testimony to its tolerance for man’s desire to wield power. Man does not wield power well. It corrupts his giving spirit. Keep in mind that we are all of Nature, we all have wild within. It comes to us through the ages of our DNA, no matter where we are born or brought up. Our wild feeds from source. Source is contaminated. There is a lot of cruelty to assimilate. The scales are off-balance where wild is concerned and the imbalance is being visited upon the planet in the shape of man hurting man in a barbaric fashion. Man has always hurt man – that is his way, his demonstration, his ascension to the top has always involved battles, scars. The problem is that in our society there are a lot of people doing a lot of hurting and either deriving pleasure from the experience or not giving a shit.
There are too many children being raped in this world. That is cruelty. There is too much shit being spoken in the name of love. That is cruelty. People need to trust love, because it is very real. As a force, it is breath-taking. People need to know that love tells them the truth, not lies. Love will not tell you what you want to hear. If you are hearing exactly what you want from someone all the time, you must question their motives in life. It is likely that they do not care for you the way you think they do. Perhaps it is that they want something, or that they are already taking from you and in order to continue doing so they keep you sweet by filling your ears with shit. Do not feel angry if you should realise that you have been or are being taken advantage of. Used. You allowed it to happen. Your ego allows it to happen. Keep your ego where you can see it, do not let it run away with you. Be aware that a cruel person is addicted to cruelty. Do not tolerate cruelty. If you are with a cruel partner you must question your motives in life.
If you are a person who speaks shit in the name of love, please stop it. You are giving love a bad name. Love is sensitive to its reputation on Earth. It is sensitive to the lies you speak in its name. If you are spending time fucking people for a living and calling it ‘making love’, please stop it. You are lying. And for god’s sake, stop believing that you are ‘making love’. You are not. Love has NOTHING to do with fucking someone. You are insulting Nature when you choose to pretend that it has.
