I'M OK ... YOU'RE STUPID
The World, is full of stupid people. Stupidity is at the root of all of our problems. We hear about war, white on white violence, black on black violence,illegal immigration, mass shootings, drug addiction, alcoholism, drunk drivers, drug abuse, traffic fatalities, teenage pregnancy, abortion, murder, rape, stealing cars, frozen food, cigarettes, and TV's. The recent paranoia concerning Syrian refugees, and the reluctance of many Americans to grant asylum, underscores the mentally challenged majority.
But now, I am going to share an epiphany I had some time ago. One day I began thinking about stupid people, and then I started to think about smart people. And then I realized that stupid people and smart people need each other. Stupid people need smart people to help them think and figure things out; especially the grey areas. Smart people need stupid people because, without stupid people in the world, there would be nobody for the smart people to help. And if there is no one to help, then what's the point of being smart? That would be stupid!
Obviously I am a smart person, because writing an essay on this particular topic, and in this particular manner, would not even cross a stupid person's mind. But if you are a stupid person, as I know that a majority of you are, there is no need to be offended, as I am not suggesting that I am better, or that I am more important than you. Also understand, I am in no way patronizing stupid people. When I say that stupid people are just as important as smart people, I am simply stating a fact. How so? I will try to explain through the following analogy.
Analogy For Dummies
I have played the acoustic guitar for many years. The reader should understand that the acoustic guitar consists of two main parts. There is the body of the guitar, or the wood, and then there are the strings that are fitted on the wood. It would be foolish to think that either part was more important than the other. In fact, without both of these parts fitted together, there would be no sound. And so, it is a fact, not an opinion, that both are equally important.
I will now digress and paraphrase one of my favorite Barbara Streisand songs:
Smart People Who Need Stupid People
Are The Luckiest People
In The World
This is the kind of music that smart people write.
Where In The Hell Are You?
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Do not be deceived!
You are not living in Idaho
You are not living in California, Arizona, or Colorado
You are not living in the godforsaken backwater state of Indiana, Iowa, or Kentucky.
You may believe that you are living in New York, but you are not there
You may believe that you are living in Virginia, North Carolina, or Alberquerque New Mexico, but someone has only told you a lie.
You may even think that you are living in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or Alaska
But these imaginary places never existed
And if you think even for a moment that you are living anywhere in the United States, it is only an American Dream
And so now I will tell you
exactly where you are
You are standing on a ship in the middle of an ocean. And the name of the ship you are standing on is The Titanic. And yes! Unfortunately for you, the ship is sinking.
Now, let us step away for a moment and consider definitions: I have spoken of smart people, and I have also spoken of stupid people, but I have yet to define either one. And so, I will now provide you with the proper definitions.
We have been led to believe that a man who can build a supercomputer is a smart man. We have been led to believe that a man who can sing, play guitar, and write his own songs, is a smart man. And we have often heard that a man of the working class; a man who started a business and became a multi-millionaire, is a smart man.
But how smart is the man standing on The Titanic who is preoccupied with building a supercomputer? How smart is the man standing on The Titanic who is busy writing, and singing, and playing his own special songs.? And how smart is the man standing on The Titanic who spends all day counting his money, as the ship is slowly sinking beneath the waves? As you can see, these are not smart men at all, but they are quite stupid, and in need of direction. And so, they have provided me with a purpose, for I am not a stupid man. I am the smart one!
I am the man who knows where he is standing. I am the man who can see that the ship is going down. But most importantly, I am the man who can tell you how to stop the motion, change direction, and bring the ship safely to the shore.
Beware The Deceivers
Evil men practice their deception because Love has come to destroy their evil world. Their dark world cannot exist in the light of Love. Yes, evil men are afraid of Love. In fact, they are scared to death of it. That is why many have spent such a great amount of time and money to discredit the notion of Love. They will attempt to educate your mind, and then appeal to your vanity. They will have you believe that Love is only a silly idealistic human emotion. They will have you believe that Love has no application in the "real" world of business and commerce, the "real"world of medicine, the "real" world of Law and Order, and in the political arena, which is the "real" world of the Dog and Pony Show. But there are only two things that are real, and one is Life, and the other is Death. All else is an illusion. Even "now" is not real. Without the Power of Love, there can be no Life, but only Death.
"You are standing on a ship. And the name of the ship is the Titanic. Only Love can stop the downward motion. Only Love can turn it all around. Only you can shine a light, as you are the vessel and God is the source".
Evil men are afraid of Love because in Love there is no need for the Laws,The Rules, and the Regulations of Man. And where there is no need, there is no longer any control. Men want to control you. World governments want to control you. Reptiles want to control you. But Love is the Law of God. The Law of God supercedes the Laws of Man, and has made them worthless and obsolete, long before they were ever written!
If a man has love in his heart, he will not violate the woman. If a man has love in his heart, he will not pull the trigger. If a man has love in his heart, he will not wonder how to steal what little money you have left in your pocket, but instead, he will go to the store and buy you a bigger pair of pants, with a much bigger pocket, and he will see how much money he can help to put in that pocket; until it can hold no more.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Love has spoken loud and clear:
"God has blessed me with the gift of life, and the gift of sound and vision. If I am not my brothers keeper, if I have no other purpose than to help myself, then I have offended God, and I am not worthy of life!"
That's what Love is.
Solve The Problem, Get Out of the Way
Jesus didn't know anything but Love. Jesus got up on the cross, was crucified, and gave the world a demonstration. John Lennon and the Beatles sang "All You Need Is Love". But it is not just a song. It is a revolutionary idea that can transform the world. It is an old idea, but it's a made out of gold idea. Many will ask,"How do we implement such an idealistic notion?" It is a common question, and easy to explain. In order to see the Power of Love we must first "believe" in the Power of Love. Let us use our common sense: In order for anyone to have an occupation, a career, or a college degree, they must first have a desire,or a dream. They must then believe that they are capable of making the dream come true,and then they must take the necessary steps to realize the dream. Concerning The Power of Love, the process is the same.
However, the fundamental difference is that a stupid man cannot grasp the Power of Love. It is easy for a stupid man to become a doctor, a lawyer, or even a rocket scientist. Such professions only require a basic ability to read, comprehend, and then memorize and parrot what someone else has told you. Here we are only painting by numbers. But only a smart man can understand and manipulate the Power of Love. And so, the best that a stupid man can do is to accept that he is stupid, and then step aside and allow us to do our work. We are here to save a world full of stupid ignorant people. So if you are stupid, there is no need to feel ashamed, and there is very little that you can do to help. And by all means, keep your stupid opinions to yourself.
I have been vilified and scorned. I have had threats made on my life. I have been held captive by an army of demons and thrown into a prison. I have even been tempted to take my own life, as my life has literally been torn apart. The evil forces of this world have sought to prevent me from delivering this great teaching. An evil and ignorant man will tell you that I have lost my mind, that I am a charlatan, a false prophet, or simply a fool. But let it be known that he is the stupid man, and that I am the smart one.
"And you well know that I have not demanded tribute
And you well understand that I have not asked that you follow me
And you well believe that I have not asked to be worshiped as your God
And you have well figured out, that I have not come here looking for a friend"
I have had many of those, and most of them were quite stupid. But do not listen to these hateful little men. They have no love for you, or themselves, as they are as dumb as a foundling ass.
"I am the man who knows where he is standing. I am the man who can see that the ship is going down. But most importantly, I am the man who can tell you how to stop the motion, change direction, and bring the ship safely to the shore".
The children of God are not powerless.They have only been deceived. If you are having trouble understanding the messenger, here is what you should do: Fill a 5 gallon bucket with water. While standing in the middle of your living room, pour the water over your head. Now, while running in place, start slapping yourself on the buttocks,alternating first with your left hand, and then with your right. Continue doing this for approx. 5 minutes. After cleaning up the mess, if you are still having trouble understanding, this would indicate that you are a stupid person. But if that is the case, God has only made you this way. And so, you will not be forsaken for your stupidity.
For whomever the shoe fits: I'M OK / YOU'RE STUPID. It is not necessary for us to live in a world of misery and violence. But because the collective consciousness has denied the Power of Love, we can only understand that this is what the stupid people have chosen. Make no mistake: the rule of man's law does not work, the rule of money does not work, the rule of selfishness, materialism, and consumerism does not work. It is time for us to choose something else.
And Take Control
We must choose the Power of Love, and we must choose a Weapon of Prayer. If you are a smart person, then be smart, and stop acting stupid.
"I am the man who knows where he is standing. I am the man who can see that the ship is going down.We are standing on a ship, and the name of the ship is The Titanic".
