2012 - The Religion of Self in Spirituality Part 2: To Each His Own
To each his own...
To each his own is 'to each his own experience of self interest'. I mean this is the obvious implication, the obvious acceptance, where the individual wants and desires 'freedom of choice', 'freedom of belief', 'freedom of religion'. The point that has been missed within this, is what is being Allowed within the Acceptance of these 'individual freedoms'. In Accepting my individual starting point to be that of 'I want and must have my freedom of choice, freedom of belief, freedom of religion', I Allow the freedom for all others, one and Equal to my OWN starting point, to create a religion of 'my own individual experience' - within which one is not considering a key point: what is best for all. One is giving everyone permission to not consider what is best for all. Within this one is actually isolating one's self from all other beings in existence, and within this Accepted self starting point thus Allowing and giving everyone permission for everyone to follow their own isolated self religion, making their individual self religion their entire 'purpose and point of being here on Earth' - the self religion of freedom of rape, the self religion of freedom of greed, the self religion of competition and winning, the self religion of bliss, the self religion of making profit as money, the self religion of being a vegetarian, the self religion of being a vegan, the self religion of sex and masturbation, the self religion of porn, the self religion of sex enslavement, the self religion of animal abuse, the self religion of depression, the self religion of drugs, the self religion of style, the self religion of atheism, the self religion of nihilism, the self religion of not giving a fuck, the self religion of entertainment, the self religion of art, the self religion of freedom of ignoring the mess on earth just trying to have fun until one dies, I mean the list goes on and on and on. And within this, what is not being acknowledge or seen by those within spirituality, within religion, within 'trying to make a difference', is that all of these self religions are only possible if one has one thing: MONEY. I mean, half the world is in poverty - with a billion starving. Do these people have 'freedom'? No - these people are forced by their circumstance into a starting point of survival, of doing whatever it takes to survive. And I mean, that is their 'own lot' they've been given by virtue of their birth and condition.
So in saying 'to each his own', we are also isolating those who are starving and struggling to survive into their 'own bubble', 'separate from me', saying 'to each his own to deal with what he has been given', 'it is the starving person's own responsibility to sort out his condition'. And we are also saying 'it is the Earth's own responsibility to sort out its own condition', 'it is the animals own responsibility to sort out their condition'.
Within such an Accepted individual starting point, how can we ever have a world that supports life? How can we ever have a world where everyone does what is best for all as the group, so that everyone can have a dignified life on Earth? So that we are living effectively with Nature? So that we are living effectively with the Animals? In 2012 it is time to realize that we must give up 'to each his own', and rather focus on 'to each I must give what I would like for myself', and so I must give everyone a system that supports everyone with the basic things I see support me: food, water, a home, access to education, technology, implements with which to explore creativity in art and music, proper nutrition, transportation - I mean, these are really obvious points that EVERYONE should have access to, and within this, take responsibility within our current condition, our current circumstance, to do what is required to make this world the place is must be - a place that supports life. So, obviously we must realize that there are billions of people who do not have enough money to be able to take responsibility to sort out their condition, to create a new system. Thus, those of us with money, those of us with time, those of us with access to education, to information, to technology, to politics, to leadership -- we are the ones who must bring about a real change. And obviously we have now established that this will not be possible if each participates within a starting point of the Religion of Self as Self Interest. No - each must stand Equal Here on Earth, and make the SAME considerations. Each must take responsibility, self responsibility to sort out their individual starting point - to identify and stop the religion of self within self, that self has Accepted and Allowed self to create self as and participate within, so that one as the individual can Stand Here, on Earth, clear, free from inner distractions and conflicts of Self Interest, to be able to dedicate one's life to sorting out the system on Earth.
I understand many do not want to hear this, many do not want to give up their 'freedom of self religion', because, it is just so EASY to make up 'my own truths', and 'make myself feel good', and focus only on myself and my experience. But, where has such a starting point gotten us as Humanity? We, within the starting point of the Religion of Self have created this world as a mess of abuse, of war, of conflict, of destruction, of total negligence of the actual, real SOURCE we share. The source that gives us the fuel we need to participate in our Religion of Self - the Physical, the Earth. It's time to stop using the Earth, using the Physical, to generate individual, energetic, mental alternate realities of Self Interest within ourselves, through our Minds. It is time to stop Mining the Physical, and Mining the money system for money and energy to fuel our Religion of Self as MINEd. It is time to start MINDING what is best for all. It is time to start MINDING that billions are suffering needlessly in poverty. In sorting out the system on Earth, and bringing about a new system of Equality based on the actual consideration of how to support ourselves, the animals, and nature effectively, we can end the very problems, the very ugliness that has caused us to react in fear and desperately search for a 'way out' through religion and spirituality and entertainment within our Minds. When we have taken responsibility to end the ugliness of a system of separation, a system of 'to each his own', and give everyone a system of real support to live effectively, live with dignity, live with the support to really develop ourselves as Life, instead of being forced to develop as a conditioned robot of survival and self interest due to a system of survival and self interest, when we are all Here, doing what is Best for All - then we all have freedom of Expression as Life, where Freedom is the freedom from creating, accepting and allowing consequences as outflows of Who we Are, that are not Best for All. When we are all doing what is best for all, and have given everyone the support we need to not have to resort to conflict and violence and competition for survival, when we are no longer using and abusing the Physical, the Earth for our own individual pursuit of profit as 'having more than another', and 'making myself feel good while billions suffer' -- when we are born, live in a way that is best for all, and die, and Earth remains as Heaven for All - then we can say we stand as an example of how to live effectively in the Physical, on Earth, in the best way possible.
Stop the 'light work' of the religion of self, and get down to the real work, the physical work, the physical participation required to sort this world out. It's 2012 - it's time to stop waiting for ourselves.
