sphinxDarkness will be preferred to light, and death will be thought more profitable than life; no one will raise his eyes to heaven ; the pious will be deemed insane, and the impious wise; the madman will be thought a brave man, and the wicked will be esteemed as good. As to the soul, and the belief that it is immortal by nature, or may hope to attain to immortality, as I have taught you, all this they will mock at, and will even persuade themselves that it is false. No word of reverence or piety, no utterance worthy of heaven and of the gods of heaven, will be heard or believed” From the lament of Hermes (full text here
We are living in a time where fools are treated as wise and the wise are treated as fools. Yes, everything is backwards. What to do with it?
In short, find your inner light and nurture it. That’s the only way if ever the chaos is going to be resolved. By each and every person doing that.
Maybe it isn’t meant to be though? So the old cultures say. Humanity rises to a peak then goes back to the beginning, again and again and again.
And why not. Such is the movement of all things. Why would humanity be different? Though it is possible to alter the movement of energy and keep it going on a straight path.
How? WILL and CONSCIOUS INTENT. In humanities case, this would need to be on a large scale. Considering the fact that any positive intent has as its opposition thousands of years of momentum going in the direction of absolute stupidity. Which by the way is where we are now. STUPID LAND. We are destroying the very ground that we stand upon. Could there be a better definition of stupidity?
I would say that collectively we are most definitely in a decline. This has happened to all great civilizations why shouldn’t it happen to this one? Though one main difference which certainly should not be overlooked is our connectedness through the internet. This does open a possibility for a new global civilization no longer held back by the ridiculous and outdated throwbacks of patriotism, tribalism and division which have held us back and stifled our potential for so very long.
So in every decline there are things rising also, all things grow from putrification… wisdom is blooming again in certain places. Indeed, it is always there, it always has been throughout all the madness and chaos and strife and folly. Its light kept burning by certain small groups of people around the world, over the centuries.
How to find these things?
Don’t try and find them. Work on yourself, move towards your own truth and they will find you. It is miraculous, magical even. But don’t just believe my words. Try it for yourself. It won’t be easy, it will require sacrifice. It will require the strength and bravery to follow your own soul.
