The problem is that most of us can not see the relation between cause and effect. The effects are uncountable, the Cause is ultimately , One . We are afraid to see things in relation to each other.
We are afraid to find out the cause. God knows what we may find…
The premise we hold regarding our very existence is false, as we no longer are in contact with our transcendental source. When a civilization has lost touch with its higher purpose is doomed. Thus, technological progress is mostly, a compensation for our emotional , ethical and spiritual deficiencies.
If we were really sane, progress would mean a greater life-awareness and morality.
Progress – to put it in Ekhart Tolle´s words -”has become intelligence in the service of madness.” No mad man will ever admit he is mad. The same goes for our so-called civilization.
Watching on Youtube a film about Hitler and Stalin. The world as we know it, is the outcome of their frantic and sick ideas. How these paranoiacs and caricatures came to power, and like many other lunatic dictators, including Ceausescu, became leaders and changed the course of history, is indeed a deep mystery.
Can it be that they mirror the very reality specific for what Man is behind the mask?
Mithenismos means nihilism in Greek. Mithen, that is, zero. Nothing. That´s the disease of our time, deep down we think we are nothing. So what does a “zero-person”do? Punishes the others for his unworthiness. Look to Hitler who punished the whole world, you and me included, for his not being accepted at the Art Academy. He wasn´t accepted as he couldn´t draw people. Interesting ha?… If you can´t draw them, you can at least kill them, as they already think they are nothing.
