Huston, We Have A Problem

Being compliant, conforming, cooperative, non-questioning, is exactly what the dominant cultural “system” requires to continue its dominance and spread throughout the world as we know it. This “spread”, this viral infection in humankind started approximately 10,000 years ago, the beginning of what some refer to as the start of the “Great Forgetting”.

In order to start to understand what is this “way of life”—and what it costs to maintain across the nations — our world — and how we got here, I can only encourage those that can — to “question everything” that you’ve learnt, or have been told, or continue to hear.

Don’t just have a logical mind, or a scientific mind, or spiritual mind. Don’t have a “closed mind” or a mindset formed by a set of “beLIEfs” that have just been passed-on. Have an “open-mind”, consider all possibilities.

Don’t get stuck, or fixated. Be prepared to change, to evolve, to grow, to mature, to give-up those beliefs that no longer can be maintained in the face of rapidly changing and challenging times. The uncomfortableness, that millions are feeling within, and seeing around themselves, and hearing about from all corners of the globe, is a warning symptom that somethings are just not right.

“Huston, we have a problem.” Now is the time for all to truly get involved with uncovering, exorcising, healing, correcting and adjusting our individual and shared mistruths, our unhealthy indoctrinated, culturally conditioned biases and beliefs, our unhelpful habits, our current, collective ways of living.

Silence, compliance, conforming, sanitising, uniforming, is not the way of Nature… it is the ways of normal.
