Self-Liberation from Socially Induced Spell of Can'titis
What an Embarrassing Disparity!
Whether we look at incredible architectural marvels of the ancient Egypt or at the ultra modern Dubai, we just can't escape the nagging impression of a disparity between what we can do and our condition. By "condition" I mean the state of our overall wellbeing and the level of our achieved capacity to produce harmony within ourselves and with each other.
The craziest part of our conclusion would have something to do with the fact that at any point back in history we actually had that unused potential to match, or even outdo those architectural wonders with achievements in every area of our condition.
Indeed, we could outlive the oldest person ever recorded for his "phenomenal longevity", and we could also live that reality of coexistence only dreamed of in the story of Shangri-La. So why don't we?
Rasputin's Eye of Society
Once I had to write a little thesis and I chose to title it in Latin : "Hypnosis Mater Civilisationis Est" (Hypnosis is mother of civilization). We might as well use the title for the central idea of everything what follows.
In a very distant history at one point someone must have discovered this very usable human characteristic of suggestibility, actually originating from that animalistic part of our nature. It's that sense of being intimidated while facing a much stronger opponent, of caving in, of submission, with a total surrender of will power.
It was equally effective in a tribal community of a jungle as it was during those mesmerizing speeches of Adolph Hither, or during speeches of presidential candidates which put the crowd of followers under a cheering spell.
Those wizards of advertisement are using it, and it's also obvious in those impressive holy buildings with masterfully arranged and highly suggestive interiors, enhanced by the aroma of burnt frankincense oil that lulls nervous system into relaxation and suggestible submission.
Voluntary Mental Slaves by Unconscious Choice
Right somewhere between the lines of these examples lies hidden answer to the above question: "Why can't we?" Also the question of why is the mankind suffering from this seemingly incurable pandemic of "can'titis" that reduces our capability to act out the best of our available potential.
Since every hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis, we practically volunteered to be mentally guided like a bunch of brainless sheep into these limitations. All that political, religious, and commercial Rasputins had to do was to convince us that we needed them to tell us what to think, feel and do. That highly controversial channeled entity Ramtha must have meant something valuable when he said: "If you want to be a genius - use your own mind".
Power of Comfort Zone
Our minds are so much in the grip of the social hypnotic influence that most of us would probably be scared of a new and unfamiliar de-hypnotized mentality. This miserable status quo is at least something that we know, and we want that security of our comfort zone no matter how much that "comfort" is hurting us.
Just like a chain smoker who is coughing his lungs out but dreading a life without his nicotine fix. So we don't allow ourselves to even start imagining that life of being happy, creative, strong-willed, and at peace.
Mental Freedom Means Health
One way or another this can'titis is an underlying cause of every sickness imaginable. It's all easy to understand when we remember that our immune system can successfully fight anything from hay fever to cancer - when it functions at its optimum.
Since immune system and nervous system are working closely to each other - by empowering or weakening each other - it can't be a mystery why we have an astronomical number of sick folks all over the globe. Low "spirits" - low vitality, it's as simple as that.
Except in a devoted spirituality (not religion), we hardly ever care to get in tune with our true potential, or our higher-self. Now and then we hear about a case of yet another spontaneous remission which makes the medical profession scratch behind ears in confusion, as it defies all medical prognoses.
By the virtue of a sheer love for life and persistent faith in recovery, certain individuals got attuned into their higher resources of their latent potential - resulting with some orange-size cancerous tumors shrinking overnight into nothing.
And that's so telling about what happens when we dismiss the verdicts of our limitations suggested by authorities and take our faith into our own hands, reclaiming our spirits, our minds, and our hearts.
Medical Consumers of Advertised Diseases
However, unless there is such a survival urgency coupled with a determined spirit, we are merely an individualized version of the society we live in, and whose indoctrinations about every aspect of life we assimilated making them our second nature.
In a certain jungle community of primitive folks there is a belief that if their witch doctor points a bone at one of them, he will die - and that actually happens. How far are we really advanced from them as we are falling for all medical and pharmaceutical advertisements of sicknesses. I hope you do realize that they are in the first place a "business", and every business has to advertise the "need" for their products.
As a result an average dude knows more today about possible health perils that might befall him "due to his fragile constitution" than any other in the history. It's not something to be proud of, as if a sign of "being well informed", but rather a sign of being well brainwashed.
For we are much stronger and more resilient than our medical and pharmaceutical establishments want us to believe; and much smarter than our political leaders are allowing us to believe; and much more god-like than our religious leaders want us to believe. "Believe" is the common thread in all what makes us limited. And I mean - hypnotic belief.
So, as the advertisement of another coming flu season is urging us - let us stand in that long lineup to get our precious flu shots. Without them we don't know how to survive, and sickness has become a "normal" part of life.
With Every Thinking Dude and Dudesse Waking Up
If by some miracle the world suddenly woke up from this nightmare, every soldier on earth would peel off that ugly skin called "uniform" and laugh in his leader's face when ordered to kill a totally unknown human being that had done nothing wrong to him.
And every voter would refuse to vote before a brand new party was formed with a humanistic agenda to work for the interests of all citizens, not just for that handful of the richest and most influential.
And every doctor would have decency to explain to his patients how his mind style and his life style, his belief system and his attitude all have to change, if he wants the underlying cause to be healed, not only symptoms.
And every elementary school would teach how to enhance the capacity for happiness, confidence, and ability to use one's own mind.
Armies would not exist, as there would be no enemies to fear - which in the past were always created by leaders, not by peoples who don't hate their neighbors, unless they are told to.
The global economy would bloom, based on mutual support and cooperation, rather than a bitter competitiveness propelled by ultra greed of the corporate establishment.
And so many other "outlandish" changes would result from man waking up from his nightmarish idiocy of confusing and weakening his brain and his body with that suggestive input from society that's against what is best in his nature. Our intuition is telling us that we are on a wrong path - so what's really holding us back to change it?
What Is more "Human"?
Well, some folks from the very bottom of that hypnotic crap pile are bound to call me a "New Age dreamer" or something. That's basically how every voice of hope gets labeled. "Get real." - they say - "Get down to earth, that's life and we are only humans".
Only humans? What humans? We are more like humanoid robots repeating our history of wars and every imaginable form of conflict, from inner psychological ones to global. Not satisfied with those, we are even entertaining ourselves with visions of inter-stellar wars, inspiring our kids with heroism of killings.
What is that mostly "human" in us? Our intuition is begging us to get closer to who we really are, and stop playing a faceless particle of society who can't think, feel, and act unless told how to - by those who are taking advantage of it.
We can be so much more, each one of us, but first we have got to face our truth - that we are alienated from that person in ourselves who believes and knows they can. As we yank ourselves from the hypnotic grip of the world's idiotic games advertised so well by the media, we'll make that first step in the direction that was predestined for our species.
