The S Word
Your life is about to change irreversibly. Of course, you do have the option of taking the coward’s way out, right now! Yes, life is about choices. So, pause for a moment and reflect, because there is no turning back from what is about to be revealed to you.
Do you increasingly feel that your life has no meaning? Has God gone blind or deaf? Why are we so disconnected? Why do we feel so lonely, bored, tired, frustrated? Why is our environment in a mess? The misery of modern existence is not just your imagination. There is no melodrama in what many of us perceive to be ‘a world gone mad.' It may, however, surprise you to know that our predicament is not as bad as it may appear to be. Our existential chaos is not the work of an angry God. Humankind does appear to be facing catastrophe one way or another, but we are actually heading toward a brighter day – as long as we have people like you and me on board. The most pessimistic among us may be anticipating calamity or utter ruin of Biblical proportions.
Our future on Earth appears to be destined for disaster. Depending on your background or religious beliefs, you may even regard this as an undeniable fact. It is sensible to be somewhat uneasy about our future, but there is no need to be exceedingly concerned. How can this be? Well, a simple decision has been made by many of us. Many of us have faced this choice. And now it is your turn.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
You can continue chasing your own tail in the world economic circus to earn more, possess more, control more, fear more, or destroy more. You can drown yourself in information overload or opt to lounge around in La-La Land – drugs, sex, television, dogmatic religion. You can continue to hop from one relationship to another, change careers, move from country to country, or adopt several different religions. These are all very worthwhile pursuits, even if they don’t bring you any lasting peace or fulfillment.
On the other hand you can dive into our true collective destiny. You can awaken the deity within yourself to emerge as a titan of spiritual enlightenment. You can save yourself, and you can save me too. You can save all of us. Yes, you have the power to mutilate the future of thy neighbor’s children, or save the human race from certain extinction. The fate of our species does not solely rely on government officials, environmental activists, CEO’s, church leaders or rock stars. The future now depends on you and me. It is time to awaken. Our future is in your hands. It may come as a surprise, but many people know by now that the quality of our lives are entirely our own doing. Yes, we do create our own reality.
And those who are in the know also realize that we have the Divine duty to change our ways for the better, as well as the world we live in. If you know this, you will also know that the solution is simple. Each of us has a job to do, a duty to ourselves and to others and to the planet.
Awakening begins when a man realizes that he is going nowhere and does not know where to go~ G. I. Gurdjieff
It is not about making money, having children or chaining ourselves to endangered trees (although you are most welcome to keep up that good work). If we want to have even the slightest chance of making our lives on this planet worthwhile and our future more meaningful, we have to develop ourselves spiritually. There, I said it. The S word! Spirituality should become the main purpose of your life, if it is not already. Should you decide to accept your spiritual path, you will have the power to change far more than just yourself, your community or your nation. You have the potential to permanently transform our species. Now, to become more spiritual in this insane asylum we used to call Mother Earth is easier said than done. Many of us simply have no idea how to go about this. And if we do, what is the point? This is what I hope to reveal to you in this new blog: the true meaning of your life and how to finally grab hold of it and make that difference. © 2010 Anthon St. Maarten
