Day 191: What’s Required for Change?

Change require an understanding of how one exists and what is the problem with how one is existing, and the decision that one do not want to continue that way creating the same consequence over and over. So what this means is really Facing Oneself. 

Facing the Reality of oneself, to really see - in total self honesty – just what/how I am existing as, what have I become in fact, and understanding the context of who I am within existence as how it currently exists. 

You can reverse engineer this also to see that the reason we’re existing as we do and not changing is because we haven’t yet seen in self honesty and full understanding what we are/have become and the consequence we create. So we don’t have the context to yet understand what is the problem with how we’re living, to then understand why change is necessary, and especially how to change for real. 

A good example of this you will see in the show Thailand - Blood , Sweat and Takeaways - Chicken where before they were exposed to the reality of what is going on in the world, they were fine with how they were living, but when realizing the context in which food products are being produced for the elite of the world by slave labor, and by going and experiencing that slave labor and that reality for themselves, then the need for change become obvious. The gravity of the situation become obvious, and the reality of how and what one has been existing is, and how that fit in to the context of how reality is currently existing, is then understood, where one realizes for example how most of the complaints one may have are quite petty in comparison to the actual suffering that’s going on in the world, and one realize that one has been living and benefiting off of the blood, sweat and tears of others without any regard or consideration for the lives that are sacrificed in the process. 

And, ultimately, that one is responsible for the fact that such suffering exist, because we didn’t question where things came from or how they are made so cheap, when we know it must mean someone else is paying the price. It is this way, because we have accepted it, within our living, within every moment in which we ignored the reality so we could have cheap things. And thus the solution is to change ourselves, change the words we speak, change our living, from support of Ignorance of reality, to spreading Awareness of What’s Really Going On, why it’s a Problem, how We’re Responsible, so that we can then understand why we need to change, and then actually change, to no longer accept ourselves to benefit at another’s expense, as we wouldn’t want to be in that position either, so that this lead to actual change in reality, and ending slave labor.

So what do we know – if slave labor hasn’t ended yet – we haven’t effectively changed yet. We haven’t yet made change in reality – because reality hasn’t changed – it’s still the same, the same things going on, the same abuse, the same suffering. Whatever we’ve done thus far, has not been effective. And that’s because up till now, we have really only paid Lip Service to the problems in the world, but not ever getting down to the point of actually changing reality. Nothing has changed, and thus up to now it has just been Empty words, because we did not live them. 

So, because there has been no substantial change in the world – we know we have not yet got an effective understanding of ourselves, of the reality of the situation, of our responsibility for how the world exists as it does, of the consequence that we’re creating. We have for so long, never got around to actually facing reality, facing ourselves, holding on to the hope that somehow we can just keep ignoring what we’re doing, and everything will work out anyway. Yes, it’s quite ridiculous.

We have for so long, accepted a reality in which massive abuse and suffering exists, when the solution has been here all along, which is – to CHANGE. So – why have we not really got this point? What is it that has made such a simple and obvious solution, so apparently not obvious or simple? What has been so instrumental in us not ever effectively applying change? It is – Responsibility. What do I mean? That we have never grasped our responsibility, and in fact what responsibility really means. A fascinating thing – we have taken that which is our truest power, and formed such a resistance to it, that we’d cut ourselves off from that which is our ability to have power in our lives and have a real impact in reality, to make Real Change. 

We will look at this further in the next blog – of what Responsibility actually is and how we’ve misunderstood it to the extent that we’ve robbed ourselves of our Real Power in this world.

Day 190: What is Real Change?

Let's have a look at CHANGE – what is it, how does it work, what does it mean to really change, because – humanity sure likes to have ideals. Ideas and ideals and perceptions and conceptions of how things should be, but when it comes to our Actual Living – what happens? Do we apply that which we see is Ideal? Or does it remain a picture in our mind, of how things ought to be?

Can we have principles, but not live them? Can we claim to have principles, morals, standards, yet not actually live those standards, principles, morals? Do we pay Lip Service and talk about how things should be, could be, ought to be – and ‘forget’ to get down to the actual Living of it?

Isn’t it – we must Live the Change we want to See in the World? Wouldn’t that imply that we then, have to Change? Which would mean, that we would end up different than we are/have been, our living will be different, our experience will be different. So what do you know, if nothing is different – you are not Changing. And what do you know if you are not Changing? The World is Not going to Change. Why?

Because the World is made up of each and every one of us Individuals – that’s right – we don’t tend to give ourselves the real credit we’re due. It’s so easy to avoid our individual responsibility, because there are so many of us, we can just blame it on the group as a whole, and ignore our own Role as the Part we play, as a Participant in the Play of Life. And as each one go on Ignoring oneself, no one is thus Changing oneself, and thus, No One Change. The Accepted Nature of humanity Remain the Same, as it has always been.

So, the problem is that we can talk change and talk ideals, but what really matters is Changing our Living, and we have missed this point. How can you know? Because nothing in the world has changed, and the world is the reflection of ourselves and how we live, the values we accept and live by. Nothing in this world will change, until we change. Changing our very approach to how we live our lives, in each and every moment, with how we interact with our environment, other people, animals, the physical things in our world.

Most of this stuff we are hardly even aware of most of the time – because - a fascinating thing - the human is generally fixated on only itself, and only sees everything else in relation to itself. This is the CON of Consciousness, where you are in a private bubble that no one else enters, where you seem to be separate from everyone/everything else.

Yet missing the obvious – you Are Here. You are not separate and everything you do and are has an Impact on this Reality. And by believing that we exist within only our own personal experience, we cut ourself off from the rest of existence, to then only exist within the most limited way possible, in a made up realm within our mind, while all of the rest of existence is going on right around us and we’re excluding ourself from it. We settled for an Image-inary world in our mind instead of the Real world which is far more advanced and vast and is actually Physically Real.

So, the solution to this is to no longer I-so-late oneself, before it’s too late and you reach the end of the line, and to actually get to know and become a real participant in actual reality, in awareness. And awareness is not something that just happen, but will take a process of self application, to actually expand oneself to become More.

We’ll take a look at this in blogs to come, in just how do one become Aware? And what is the Benefits one stand to Gain by doing so, and the Problems that stem from our lack of Awareness that can be prevented, so we don’t have to experience our own CON-Sequence play-out in Space and Time.
