Every day, each and every one of us asks ourselves, each other and whoever we pray to the question; “What will become of us?” in one way or another. As the pace and intensity of the degeneration of the human condition increases, the question becomes more complex and stressful. Many hear the comment “there are more questions than answers”. This is not true, of course, it’s merely a measure of how much fear we allow. There is, in the end, only one question to ask, and sooner or later we must all ask ourselves the question; and answer it, for only we, all of us, can do so; we are all we have.
That question is: Can we change what we choose to believe enough to re-define ourselves and understand that ‘hope’ is not a philosophical ethereal state that is bestowed; it is a tangible, physical force that a human being invokes by will and becomes the fuel we use to build what we call ‘reality’; The very same reality that we already created and broke, because we did, and then act as if someone ‘else’ did.
Have we lost so much of our humanity that we’re willing to be the architects of our own destruction instead of the authors of our future? Do we believe in ourselves at all? Or have we become so warped by our abuse of free will that we believe our species irreparable and doomed?
The time to ask the question is upon us and we (you too) must do so soon. If our collective decision is that we can’t change, then find a place to sit and continue to believe as we were taught, for the sheer weight of the damage that we’ve already done to ourselves is already more than we can bear and we literally face extinction. If, on the other hand, we decide, with absolute clarity, that we CAN change (of course we can change), then, together we CAN re-define the reality that we ourselves create. If that’s the case; then, what are we waiting for? All we need Is CONSENSUS not WAR.
(If you’re not sure, ask the person who looks back at you in the mirror- we can’t lie to that person. )
It is time to answer that question.
I’ll go first if you wish: WE CAN DO BETTER.
