How Does a Spiritual Person Deal with Normalized Insanity?
A request was made for spiritual insight regarding the subject of transgenderism and anal sex being promoted and encouraged to young children in schools, and what our responsibilities are. This post is my response.
This is another consequence of cultural Marxism – an agenda to primarily destroy the American way and replace it with a communist system. Anything that is “normal” and good is maligned and criticized. (In fact, cultural Marxism was introduced with the actual name of Critical Theory.) Marriage, heterosexuality, actual genders, business (meaning capitalism,) logic, punishment for crime, personal responsibility, truth, liberty, etc. are all targets for destruction.
At the highest level, there is an intent to destroy the values that enable a society to exist. At the lowest levels, people may not even know of the agenda they serve. Some do, and these people openly call out for either communism, socialism, or anarchy. But they can also play a “useful idiot” role without even being aware of the meta-political agenda they’re serving. The foot soldiers act on emotion and super-charged feelings of right and wrong.
An example of this emotionalist-activist in action today is border resistance. Visualize a poor Mexican family standing at the border asking if they can please come to America and partake in the American dream. They are fleeing poverty, crime, political corruption, and daily violence. On an emotional level, it FEELS mean to deny them entrance. (Or even worse, to send them back home after finding them later.)
But rationally and logically, America cannot absorb the world’s poor and oppressed. We’ve taken in tens of millions already, but can we host several billion who would rather live here than where they are? Of course not. But this is not a consideration because it is not an emotional calculation. It’s one of logic, logistics, resources, geography, and so on.
The political agenda plays out socially and culturally, which comes down to individuals. They are being taught ultra-self-indulgence with zero responsibility. This has gone from “If it feels good, do it,” to “If I can’t have what I want, you’re oppressing me!”
Far from being “progressive,” people are adopting the mentality of unhappy, self-centered children. If you’ve ever seen a spoiled, poorly-behaved child being denied something he wants, and he repeats over and over the thing he desires without consideration of why he was denied, then you understand the mindset of crowds chanting in the streets. Mindless repetition of what they insist on having without regard for any facts whatsoever.
On a spiritual level, this entire scenario from top to bottom is in direct opposition to universal core elements of spiritual advancement. But under the guise of compassion, justice, and equality, it slips past the thought process and engages individuals who think they are being more spiritual, rather than less, and more good, rather than evil.
The worst genocides in history were perpetrated by communists, and yet, communism (under a variety of names) is still being sold as a means to utopia. Similarly, complete and utter self-indulgence is an obvious recipe for personal destruction, but it is being sold as your birthright. People are essentially taught that no personal challenge should be examined for the personal development one needs to overcome it and grow as a soul and a member of society. Instead, anything that gnaws at a person and minimizes their idea of personal contentment means that someone or something outside themselves needs to be identified, blamed, and ideally, eradicated. This is the opposite of growth. This is an embracing of the ego and all of its maleficent manifestations.
No self-help principles or religions on earth teach people to examine one’s desires and then indulge them to the point of violence against others. Not even Satanism does that. But this is what is happening. Anti-Responsibility. Others as Cause. Demands for goods or services without fair exchange. A central ruling authority to fairly disperse the fruits of your personal labors.
How has this become the norm? By dedicated, sustained efforts over a long period of time. Generally, this has been achieved by doing what the communists did in Russia – indoctrinating children. Specifically, there are many facets of the agenda, and sexuality is just one of them. Two Marxists named Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs concluded that in order to convert Western societies over to communism, Christianity would have to be destroyed.
Lukacs introduced radical sex education programs in Russian schools in which they were taught atheism and promiscuity and urged to revolt against their parents, pastors, and various social norms. These same strategies were brought to American schools by among others, the NEA, ACLU, GLSEN, and GSA.
It isn’t a freak of nature or coincidence that 98% of teachers are leftists, or that many college professors are radical communists and Marxists, such as the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. The rebellion against parents, religion, law-enforcement, government, family values, etc., that happened in the 1960s was not spontaneous. There were architects behind the division that manifested then and has expanded ever since into the hopeless situation we see today. Herbert Marcuse was one of the primary masterminds behind this intentional destruction of the social fabric of America as well as other Western countries.
So how does a spiritual being deal with this unfolding catastrophe? What does one do when insanity and evil appear to have become the norm? The first thing to do is gain perspective and take comfort in knowing that tens of millions of people reject this. Transgender individuals for example are only 0.003 percent of the population. From watching the news, one would assume that there untold millions of them in America. In the same way that the vast majority of educators are socialists, whether they admit it or even know it, the same is true for the majority of mainstream media. That means not just the news media, but the entertainment media. This does not mean that such people are aware of Marxism/communism and have knowingly embraced it. They are largely just uneducated and do not realize that they are useful idiots. They are unwittingly aiding and abetting a political agenda that is bent on destroying the greatest country in the world. (You have to wonder, if America is the bastion of evil and white supremacy that leftists claim it is, then why does everyone under the sun want to come here?)
Because leftist ideas are pervasive in our news, movies, and music, etc., the impression is created that this way of thinking (or not thinking) has taken over. But the recent presidential election in the U.S. tells us something important. One candidate who railed against this anti-liberty insanity was able to win the election despite having many characteristics that the average person does not find appealing, and despite having a 24-hour hate campaign waged against him by the most powerful opinion-makers in the world for a year and a half leading up to the election. In the past, one minor scandal was all it took to end a presidential campaign. And yet this candidate withstood a tsunami of scandalous allegations, most of which were fabricated, or wrested from the threads of reality and made into a gross caricature that was literally unbelievable. As Ted Cruz said early on, the media made Donald Trump out to be a “cartoon villain” from the very beginning.
The reason Trump was able to win, despite being accused of just about every despicable thing you can imagine (which millions still believe to be true about him via the scientific method of inquiry known as “tribal knowledge”) was because so many people are adamantly against this communistic takeover of America. Most of them probably don’t know that’s what it is, or have never heard of cultural Marxism, but ironically, they know how it feels. And the feeling is wrong.
Knowing you’re not alone, and that not everyone is buying into this is evil is the first step to confronting it. Take some comfort in that. Another step, if you’re so inclined, is to learn more about what and who are behind this effort. The main thing to do though is what you’ve always done as a spiritual person: maintain your convictions and live your life true to your beliefs and knowledge about what is good and right.
If you had friends in your youth who encouraged you to steal a car with them and go joyriding, you either participated and regretted it because you knew it was wrong, or you resisted the peer pressure from the get-go and may have eventually lost criminally inclined friends.
You may have heard that there is no physical bliss comparable to shooting up heroin. Maybe you tried it. Or maybe you rejected the idea of it because you know that more awareness and more control over yourself is your goal, not less. If your friends don’t agree, they eventually end up not being your friends.
Core principles define us. They determine who we befriend, who we love, who we marry, and how we raise our children. Unfortunately in modern times, layers of morality and spirituality are being stripped down to the core. In the past, a friend might have revealed his great fortune at discovering that he could get away with stealing large sums of money from his employer. Socially, one might not feel comfortable censuring their friend’s revelation – but the feeling is there in the gut that this is wrong, and this affects the affinity for this individual, and over time, a distance is created until the friendship either dissolves, or is maintained artificially.
But now, instead of a social façade that keeps us from knowing the moral core of our friends and family, we have an immediate revelation of where one stands on a multitude of issues, and the reaction is typically immediate when one merely voices where they stand in regard to the president. All of the complexities of morality, ethics, politics, and even spirituality are blurred into one side or the other. For or against. Left or right. Hate or love. A simplistic judgment system is employed on the spot. “Oh, you’re one of them.” It’s not accurate, intelligent, or reliable, but the litmus test is real today.
The person who is primarily engaged in spiritual matters is in a uniquely unfortunate position. Practitioners of new thought, metaphysics, light work, past lives therapy, and so on, are most likely to find themselves vastly out-numbered in this artificial political division. This is mainly due to the fact that conservatives are generally believers of some sort of Christian-based theology, and it is those who’ve rejected Christianity who have discovered other forms of spirituality or alternative religious instruction. So the person who has rejected confining religious dogma in pursuit of spiritual truth and has actually spiritually evolved, understanding that they are ultimately responsible for their physical and spiritual life and fate is not likely to be found in either political camp. They are likely to have boundless love and compassion for humanity as those on the left believe that they do, while also embracing principles of truth, honesty, family values, and personal responsibility, as those on the right at least pay lip-service to. Those on a spiritual path usually do not find a perfect home in any political camp. Politics is the making of policy for massive groups of people, while spiritual enlightenment is a solitary pursuit. There is no enlightened political party. There are only enlightened individuals.
The answer of how to deal with the horrors of cultural Marxism as a spiritual person is mainly to keep doing what you’ve been doing, particular when it comes to the manifestations of evil. Identify it, understand it, resist it, and personally avoid it as much as possible. Where you feel inspired to educate and inspire, and can safely do so, without threat of physical harm, or the loss of your income (both of which are tactics and targets by rabid activists,) then do what you can.
It’s a challenging time for us, and a heart-breaking time. But keep in mind that evil has manifested in many ways throughout history. You can read in the daily news about children whose lives have been ruined by people with no cultural/political position whatsoever. Some people are just evil or corrupted beyond salvation. The difficult challenge we face today is seeing forms of evil becoming normalized, promoted, and required. This feels like a new development, but it’s really just a blatant example of a progression that has been going on for some time. It’s just darker, and shocking because it’s happening in the open, and otherwise good people are ignorantly supporting it.
One important thing to maintain is your ability to look at things from a viewpoint of love. Realize that many people who are engaged in destructive practices actually believe they are doing what’s right. Most of them are not evil themselves. If a man hated religion and wanted the local church destroyed, he could spread a rumor that the priest was a cannibal with dead bodies in the basement freezer. Those who rally to burn down the church are not necessarily evil. Those who adopt the propaganda of cultural Marxism largely do so out of suppressed pain from their own past and their psychological impairment and a yearning for internal peace and happiness. The sad truth is, they’ve latched on to the rumor that the local cannibal-priest is the source of their unhappiness. And now they believe that burning a church full of people will make the village a better place and restore their happiness.
So do what you’ve always done. Resist ignorance, and group-think, and propaganda, while trying to spread light and love in your circles of influence where and when you can. Know that you can’t stop the harm that is done to innocent children in America by the official adoption of insanity just as you can’t save the lives of children in African villages. But also remember that all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. In a time when it appears that there is an abundance of young souls in young bodies, it’s vital to be a living example of higher principles, just as a parent should be for their young children. Unruly children hate rules, but your love for them requires that you enforce them. Fortunately, you’re not on earth to win a popularity contest. (Unless you’re a celebrity, in which case, congratulations, now use your tremendous and unwarranted influence for something important.)
All you can do is exercise your power and influence when and where you can. Stand for truth and beauty as you are able. Be careful and aware of your speech and your actions. And remember that you probably chose to be here at this specific time for the spiritual needs of yourself and your groups. Your purpose and your path may take on new dimensions, but haven’t changed. And while being extra empathetic is more difficult now in this culture and in this battle than ever before, your presence, strength, wisdom, and light warrior aspects are needed now more than ever.
You are here for a reason. Stay on point. Gather your resources. Find and embrace your soul companions. And keep doing the right thing.
