The Society Of Eat Or Be Eaten

American society has shown itself in all these mass shootings over these years to be a society of eat or be eaten. What does this mean? This is simply a reference to the reptilian brain that still operates as a part of the human lower brain. I sometimes refer to it as “lower ego.” This part of the human brain has shown dominance in our society when we seek to solve our existential angst by shooting others and ultimately ourselves. What is at the basis of this?

In my experience, this is the national tragedy of not parenting our reptilian ego. There is a level of our society that condones violence with its video games, movies, TV series, wars, militarized police state, gang violence, political bickering, political divisiveness, bullying and increasing economic stress leading to mental imbalance. To me, it’s a spiritual crises born of an imbalanced ego that seeks to eat or be eaten,  an imbalanced emphasis on materialism over soul.

How do we reclaim our sanity? We reclaim our sanity by parenting our out-of-control egos and by becoming more soulful. This must be taught by parents and leaders to our children from the earliest age. Teach them about spiritual values like compassion, Love, peace, tolerance, kindness, harmony and how to parent their egos by knowing the difference between the voice of the ego and the voice of soul. The voice of ego is easy to recognize: comparing, competitive, controlling, judging, approving and eat or be eaten at all costs. Please realize that I am not advocating the diminishment of the ego. We need our ego to survive in this world. I am talking about parenting the ego by making it your best friend and by being its boss, always showing it the higher road.

Out-of-control egos in many cases, egos that are so self-absorbed that they can only see themselves and have no compassion lead to obsessive-compulsive disorders and other mental health issues like psychopathy, narcissism, sociopathy and others.

I believe that moving from ego-centered thinking to soul-centered thinking is a part of what American society can do to lessen its focus on eat or be eaten, when that mindset, that mentality is not what is called for in the daily living of a people. Some of it is Ok like in competitive sports, etc.

Going into a school and shooting people is not going to assuage a imbalanced, out-of-control, unparented ego. That imbalanced ego is not just a sign of that individual’s fragile mental health but of the health of the society as a whole. It is time to bring back spiritual values into our conscious awareness. Keep our ego intact but work with it so that it doesn’t behave like a bull in a china shop!!!

Love Is An Abstract Noun

I volunteer to help improve the reading of second language grade school students and yesterday I was reminded about the meaning of an abstract noun. While an abstract noun is still characterized as a noun, it is considered abstract because it cannot be apprehended with the five senses. In the example with my student, the abstract noun was Love.

We consider Love “abstract” because we cannot see, touch, taste, hear or smell Love. To me, the world’s grammatical definition of Love is at the very heart of why many humans experiencing, speaking or writing of Love do not grasp what it really is. They perceive it as “abstract” when in reality, Love is the greatest Force in the Cosmos. Why do we see this thing, this noun called Love as theoretical and not as the powerful and useful Force that it is? Do we reduce it to an also ran because we see emotion and feeling Love as weak?

My experience is that most humans don’t believe in anything they can’t experience with their five senses. The common belief of humanity is “seeing is believing” when it can be “believing is feeling” or “believing is seeing.” The weird thing is that most people feel Love, give Love, want Love but they relegate it to something spooky, something unseen, something “abstract.” They refuse to see and use Love as the incredibly powerful Force that it is and as this Force, it is NOT an “abstract” noun; it IS a noun because it CAN be apprehended with the five senses when we allow our hearts to experience the Love in all things with a sense of gratitude, appreciation and thankfulness and feel our hearts flutter, our skin tingle, our ears buzz, our noses swell, our taste buds explode!!!

To use the Force of Love is to consciously use the power of Love in all things human and beyond and to see it, not as an abstraction but as a thing to be reckoned with that is as real as any physical thing.

Be Love now.

The Human Matrix Is More Than Ego

The Human Matrix, the complex known as human being is so much more than the persona/psyche/ego yet most of the humans on the planet are ensnared by the ego’s machinations and live strictly in an egoic centered awareness. How can you tell this is true? Look at the behavior of most humans here on Earth: comparing, competitive, judging, seeking approval and to approve and controlling. There are other paradigms of the Human Matrix. What are they?

Human beings are a complex also made up of emotions, feeling, a physicality that has innate intelligence all its own, a soul and Spirit. Most humans ignore this side of their human being and from this ignorance arises most if not all of humanity’s problems. What I am inferring here is that most humans ignore their emotions, their soul and their Spirit, relying mostly on their intellect, the ego part of their complex. We see this in most humans acting in a soulless manner. Everything is linear, rational, overthought with no sensitivity to what is going on with their subconscious, their soul. This has led to a spiritual crises where humans feel that life is worthless, has no intrinsic meaning. There is too much obsessive/compulsive disorder. This is not the truth.

Our emotions, our souls and Spirit give us meaning, understanding, knowledge, awareness and wisdom. Yet we ignore our souls. This sorry state of affairs is ending now as more and more humans across the planet are beginning to wake up, become aware, parent their ego and become more soulful beings. When most of the humans have become soul-based on Earth, we will have a planet of peace and abundance. We will never be perfect but we will let go of ego-centered behavior and beliefs.

We may not always see eye to eye but we will not lead with our egos wanting to eat or be eaten.
