ALL Of this is very interesting:
BECAUSE No doubt about it, it is true that as people and society now are set up, that botched and unhappy individuals cause a good deal of anguish and misery for those around them. And this is so whether you are talking about criminals or police, realtors or city administrators, or anyone else of the millions trapped by everyday life….
After all, the real prisoner of the Blue Earth County Jail for example is the fifty-nine-year-old guard grimly hanging on to his temper so he can collect his pension without clubbing one of the other prisoners and getting in trouble with…government liberals and psychologists.
Now if I was to say in so many words what is “true,” namely that individual fantasies are perhaps the most-powerful tool we have for changing reality and the whole World, you would most likely have to (!) say that that is a lot of “wishful thinking.” And you would not be to blame for that, because really no one is to be blamed for their conditioning. Virtually all social systems beginning with family-life itself are conditioning-systems.
IT Is like the whole question of “free will” in Christian theology. No one can honestly be said to have freedom of choice until they are first of all taught exactly about the nature of choice, limited options and so forth.
And even then no one is really “free” to choose anything until they have been given (!) the power of choosing, the courage and determination and so forth. Or at least until they have come to desire strongly all of this enough to do all the work needed, to lay claim to that sort of power.
The key to it all is to be found in the unfolding nature of love in each individual life — love is an endlessly winding path and of course lots can wrong. We all know this from all the wrong sorts of “love” we see in ourselves and others, everyday:
Obsession, hanging onto another, clinging to the past, especially hurt feelings, and so on. Lots can go wrong with love:
WHAT Is most dreadful perhaps is to see how many little children are poisoned from babyhood, and ruined for life by those who really love them. (And so here I do not mean only the obvious victim-children of out-and-out psychopaths.)
And we will continue to produce miserable people who grow up to become cops & robbers, and Zionists & Terrorists, and whatever, until we individually change ourselves.
Baron Bodissey said it once to me very clearly:
“EVERYBODY is a victim of their family because the adults were victims of the grandparents, and the grandparents were victims of their parents and so on, all the way back to the Year Zero. The trick is to stop wallowing in bad memories — and to just start to be happy!”
DON’T Worry — be happy?
THIS is the final solution to all of the miserable problems of physical existence?
Of course it is….
AND Equally of course learning “how” is a lot of work. People interested in inklings (and who really, Really, REALLY want to help the “bad” cops and the good cops, and all of the criminals, and everybody else on Earth, including the psychologists) are invited to look through following items:
DON’T Make a big deal of this, just read whatever catches your eye. There are many ways to get it through your heads after all, this “one thing that is really true.”
What is really true is this:
If you change yourself, above all if you change your mind, you change the World — and when you finally change yourself not only for “the better” but for The Best, why then you (alone in your room) will find that you (!) have already rescued the whole World long since, and everything and everyone that ever was, is now or ever shall be.
