A paradigm shift within is required for change

My answer to Paul´s latest post:

The greatest mind-blowing paradox is not that we are in deep shit.

The real crisis is the average man´s resistance and refusal to admit this
impending state of things.

It happens before our eyes, yet everybody is busy to proceed with the lies and petty absurdities you well know by now…

You say:
“A paradigm shift in politics is required for change”. I say a paradigm shift is required in each and every man´s soul. A step that in all likelihood, man will not deliberately take…
Unless forced be a horrendous nature catastrophe or cataclysm of sorts, humans won´t show any readiness or interest to face this truth.
Human nature is the way it is…Cowardice. Bigotry. Sloth. Mendacity. Convenience.

People secretly like the way things are, otherwise we would witness a change right away, if all were sick and tired of the present state in whatever area of life.  But humans won´t make a move unless forced, indeed shaken, by a visible, tangible threat. As if what is happening is not enough a big of a threat. But it is not enough that you and me, and few other individuals see the state of affairs.

Unfortunately, progress happens by mistake not by deliberate will-power…

As I said before, we cannot save the world. Just save yourself first!

Each of one of us has to make the priority of establishing Peace within,
to bring order inwardly and, at best, in our very proximity. Few powerful steps
in right direction!

I trust you have the power to undergo the shift you talk about.

That´s the most pragmatic step you can take for you and the world.

Can we embrace a new paradigm?

In a way, we want to find out…On the other way, our ego, somehow doesn´t allow that, and hampers us to perceive things clearly.

If I were to tell you “new things”, would your ego want to hear, or dismiss them as pure phantasy inventions?…

How can you give something unless there is also the desire of the other person to receive that? The desire to receive may be there, but, as the mind is a bad interpreter, it interprets according to its conditioning. With other words, it often doesn´t recognize the gift. The key to a problem may lie just in front of our eyes, but because it comes in a “strange” package, we won´t be able to see it, or accept it. Often we dismiss truth through indifference or sloth.

Our habits are our prison. How can we recognize “new facts” when we are conditioned to live according to outdated patterns? We claim that we are so modern, yet our way of perceiving reality is old: we keep repeating and reiterating our ancestors´ totally false ideas about reality which we still  take as The True Paradigm. Can we recognize that the Paradigm of Darwin, Newton and Descartes is totally outdated, that this specific assumption that life is nothing but a material process, can be the menace for our survival?

To illustrate my point: if only the strongest makes it, it means that life is nothing but a constant struggle for survival. Survival of the fittest is the result of pure madness, madness generated by abysmal fear. It is this fear always trying to dominate and compete. Not knowing WHAT or WHO they are, most people define themselves only through competition. Basically this thesis builds on “I dominate and kill you so I know who I am.” That´s our present recipe for success.

It is quite manifest that, having the urge to dominate, struggle and kill for life, we define ourselves ultimately through crime, through death.

In this frenzied state of despair to survive, how on earth can we have time and peace to think, consider, see and think clearly, embrace beauty, approach life with a deeper understanding and joy? It is clear, we think of ourselves as being victims to be soon executed, and how can a man constantly living with fear of extinction be sensible, generous or altruistic?…A total contradiction, don´t you think?…

WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ACT THE WAY WE DO, BECAUSE OUR COMPREHENSION OF REALITY IS MOULDED ACCORDING TO SOME WRONG IDEAS THAT WERE STATED VERY LONG TIME AGO.

Obviously, we cannot change our way of action, unless we get at the very Ideas which generated our wrong way of thinking. I am aware that it is overwhelming to start considering life and ourselves as a part of a spiritual grand design, but failing to recognize that, we are doomed.

Are we prepared for a new comprehension of Reality?…

Who is going to answer: our Real Self, or the fearful Ego…?

Spontaneous Evolution by Bruce H. Lipton and Steve Bhaerman

I was kind of “directed” to this book. Indeed, Spontaneous Evolution is incredibly valuable and pertinent, questioning our deepest beliefs: “what if everything we know is wrong?”.

It describes thoroughly that The Stories of our ancestors who have modelled this world are basically obsolete and outdated.

I was incredibly grateful to read that what I have been saying for the last 20 years has finally been expressed by someone else:

THE MADNESS WE SEE AROUND US IS THE SECONDARY PRODUCT OF TRYING TO LIVE A NEWTONIAN EXISTENCE, IN AN EINSTEINIAN WORLD.

The required paradigm for building a new civilization from the ashes of the old is exactly this:

Individually and collectively, we urgently need  A NEW STORY.

In Steve´s words, each moment is a choice: “Am I feeding the old story – the limitation story – or am I feeding This New Story that´s being born?”
