Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia.
I am in a restaurant in Rainbow Beach. I have an hour and a half to write and post this in the internet café next door. Everything closes at 7 pm and at 9 it is bedtime for most of the locals. I try to stretch it till 10 and then I go to sleep too.
I walked through a forest today. It seems all I do: I walk along remote beaches or in other manifestations of nature. I felt quite lost and useless to be honest. Is this my contribution to mankind? Walking through a forest? But right now I feel really good. May be not so strange after 40 minutes of meditation, 3 hours of walking through nature, a swim in the ocean and an hour of yoga. Anyway, let’s see if I can something good with the spacious feeling and the quiet mind.
A friend of mine is worried about the Illuminati and the NWO (New World Order). I was not really aware of these things but I promised to look into it myself. I have only glanced at it. What I understand there is an elite of super rich and powerful families who strive to control humanity and all it’s resources. People who spend a lot of time researching this stuff find lots of evidence and symbols everywhere.
His question was: “what do I think about this?” I don’t know if the Illuminati are real and if they really have a plan to kill a large part of the global population. But I do know that we all have a dark side so we can safely say that people in power have that side too. I don’t think Illuminati are the problem, I think ego is the problem. Or more specifically: the part of us that is filled with greed, obsessed with survival at any costs, prepared to kill, cheat or lie and terrified of dying. Give a couple of those egos access to billions of dollars and they will come up with pretty scary schemes to consolidate their positions, preferably forever.
I think the point is that we see that the fast majority of us would do the same. How can we accuse others of selfish, greedy and survival driven behavior if we are not different at all? Who doesn’t believe that it is a good thing to be rich? And what is even better then getting rich? Staying rich! The idea that the Illuminati are conspiring to control our thoughts (by controlling the media) is scary but if you really feel like that make an attempt to liberate yourself from thoughts, greed and fear.
I do believe that there are dark forces. But instead of fighting the dark forces on the internet I prefer to fight the dark forces in myself. It is hard work and very difficult. But it is still easier then trying to change others and more empowering then cultivating a cynical outlook on the world.
Illuminati or no Illuminati, the world needs courageous, openhearted and generous people who are devoted to doing good for others and planet. If enough people choose to live like this it will make the world a better place. If few choose this life well.. at least they lived a life worth living. Don’t think that you will make a difference by forwarding fear inducing links to your friends. If you are genuinely concerned about the cynical forces of humanity man up and join the warriors. Open your heart, work hard, inspire others and share your wealth. It will guarantee you a good life.
