A Challenge to You: Prepare to Experience Truth

Dear Reader,

Throughout this short essay, I would implore you to take these words seriously.  Take these words to heart, and please be open to your innermost self.

You are a hypocrite.

There is no denying it, and the hardest part is knowing that you are hypocritical, and yet expect others to be non-hypocritical.

It’s OK.  

Every human being is a hypocrite.  Singly and in groups, we all say one thing and do another, and we all do it with the knowledge of our hypocrisy.  It is part of being human and may be a necessary product of our ability to form complex societies and relationships.  On grand scales involving many people, hypocrisy is responsible for war and death, bad governance, poverty, inequality, and the list goes on.

Do you believe that you, a seeker of truth, can be honest enough with yourself as a single human being to move your life, as you know it, in a different direction?

Does human compassion outweigh indifference?  Do “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the self”?

If we ever needed answers to these questions, the time is now.

Can you give up something?  Perhaps a way of life that you have envisioned for yourself? Could you replace that vision with a picture that includes more than yourself, in effect minimizing your ego and desires in order to achieve a higher purpose?  Would you use some of your short time on earth to truly contemplate a change in yourself and your outlook on life?

I ask these questions to you, whoever you are.  I don’t have the answers, but I am willing to ask you to think about where you are headed in your life as an individual, and as a member of a group of animals that now controls and changes the planet at will.

 I believe that humanity is ready for a fundamental change.  I hear it on the news, from my friends, on the internet, and almost everywhere I go.  It’s less of a conversation and more of a feeling, a gathering of forces unseen but palpable.  I feel a collective guilt, a feeling of selfishness, a circling of wagons as if our little group of societies were about to be attacked in some way.  It’s hard to explain, this feeling of impending change, but I can think of no better way to describe it.  It is the beginning of something, or the beginning of the end of something. 

I also feel great hope, as if I were a part of a grand and glorious new world in which we had become enlightened and more homogenous.  A world above petty and selfish “I have mine, get your own” thinking and actions.  A world obsessed, not with gathering and having the best “things”, but providing for each other and equalizing true happiness.  I have been compelled to contribute, in the best way that I can, an idea of a sustainable world that has passed the test of living together in harmony with each other and with nature, our life giver.  Unfortunately, my idea would require great change and sacrifice for all of humanity.

 I know and you know the truth.  The world has arrived at a crossroad.  To remain on our present path means that humanity will go silently into the night, and the lights will go out one by one as we perish.  Our greatest achievements will mean nothing, and will disappear and soon be erased by the universe.  The most advanced animals ever to evolve on earth will have foolishly and knowingly committed suicide.  It is entirely possible that this has happened before, perhaps on other worlds capable of evolving intelligent life.  This is the true test of intelligence, knowing that we have the ability to save ourselves but not the will to do so.  I have two children, and I cry every day.

Quiet your mind.  Close your eyes.  Feel your body.  Let your thoughts go away and melt into the collective consciousness.  Life is good.  Life is amazing.  Your mind is the most complex object on earth.  Emotions are unique, puzzling, and give meaning to life.  Love is a real thing and is all around you.  There is a Force, a power greater than yourself that is everywhere and every when.  It is the Force that gave birth to the universe, and is in and of the universe.  Meaning exists only as a home for love and life.  These are the good things.  Forget about details, religions, control, governments.  Remember that you are one with humanity.  We are all the same, capable of the best and worst.  Use your mind and have confidence that it will naturally lead you in the right direction by default.  Don’t believe in human interpretations that, by their very nature, change your innate ability to know right from wrong, good from evil, and life from death.  

You need help, as do I and anyone who cares about the future of our race.  Our time here has been short.  We as a species have been shortsighted.  We cannot continue in this manner, expecting to expand forever on diminishing resources and worsening global conditions.  We must each take individual responsibility for our actions and uses.  The government exists to serve the people, and we must remind our leaders of this.  It serves no one when there is no cohesion throughout the world.  It is ultimately up to we, the people, to challenge the present system that is attempting to direct us down the path of consumerism and greed, a path that leads to oblivion.

Please help me.  My original essay follows:
