After countless deep and meaningful conversations, with people from all walks of life, all around the world, I was left wondering, “Why do people hate people so much?”
Despite all the years of study and research, I couldn’t answer this question in a way that fully satisfied my Heart. The nutty professor inside of me likes to have an answer for everything. He wants to understand life from every possible angle - and, until recently, the underlying cause of this problem remained a mystery.
I realise addressing the deepest and darkest side of our humanity is a full on topic, but I don’t actually see anyone else presenting a plausible answer to this situation. So I feel it is time to take a brutally honest look at humanity’s dark side, and determine exactly what is going on and how to fix it. Sound ambitious? Maybe…. But what is more important in times like these? It is a big topic, so it looks like it might be a long post.
The thing about humanity is: We are all the same. This can be a good thing and a bad thing, but at least it makes finding the answers to our problems very simple. As a practitioner, I have treated people with practically every dis-ease and problem known to man. During consultations, it didn’t take long for people to realise I genuinely cared, and almost immediately would open up, and literally tell me everything. There is almost nothing I haven’t seen or heard in the last 30+ years.
Everywhere I went around the world, I shared with people who were getting by in life. However, I didn’t have to scratch very deep to find out that most were living some degree of an existential crisis. The only difference was that some people could hide it better than others. The vast majority of people were openly full of pain, confusion and exhaustion.
Beneath all the masks and hats people wear, there is a person who just wants to get the hell out of their situation. Their motives may differ, but they nearly all lack Peace and doubt their ability to keep going. Some people struggle to make life better for themselves; others for their family; others for the world. Some can function within the system, while others fail miserably and seek alternatives.
The vast majority of people are seeking alternatives. They simply want out. Most are bored out of their brains, and can’t cope being shackled to a controlled and regulated society. The suppression is unbearable, and they are no longer prepared to prop up an artificial world. It has become an unacceptable burden to have their tax money kill and destroy another culture. The abhorrent destruction of the planet and animal species breaks their hearts. They don’t want to support the slave labour in prisons and sweat shops. Everyone tells me that given the chance, they would go and live a self-sustaining life in a cabin in the woods.
This is why so many people escape to nature every chance they get. Their holidays usually involve getting away from it all. And the more isolated and remote the better. Those that are fortunate enough to make the escape permanent speak with a deep conviction. They don’t want to be reminded of the outside world, and are happy to forget it exists.
However, most people are trapped and can’t escape. They are a slave to the system. At best they may go on a short vacation or a 10 day retreat, but nothing that comes close to providing the required healing. Even though they lost heart years ago, they keep dreaming that one day their luck may change, and they will have the freedom to spread their wings and never look back.
So, how bad are things when most people just want to flee their lives? The environments that are supposed to be supporting them are driving them crazy. Most people just wish they could stop the world and get off. They are sick and tired of the suicide bombers, the police brutality and killings, the crime, the terror, the homelessness, the drugs, fake news, narcissistic celebrities, the beheadings, the false flag operations, the disease and medication rates, etc. - pretty much everything in society.
It is obvious that society is being driven by the insane, war-mongering, Illuminati controlled governments. These psychopaths are backed by the blatant fear tactics of the corporate media. This is reinforced by a subliminal assault inflicted by the satanic cults running the music and entertainment industry. And it is all kept in motion by rigged elections for smug politicians, who lie directly to our face. They are protected by the paedophiles among the elite and religious - the very people who should be making a difference.
We have probably all witnessed or been the victim of someone who was on an egotistical power trip. There are people who are just plain nasty and act like absolute arseholes towards others. They vent on social media, which has become a playground for the haters. But when you put all judgment and opinions aside, you will see that these people are the ones who are suffering the most. They just take their frustrations out on others. Exposure to this behaviour effects the mental health of many people, who eventually cannot contain their frustration and hit boiling point.
People who have reached this point demonstrate a contempt for life, others or themselves. You only need to look at how many people display self-destructive habits and behaviour. They appear as socially accepted ways of suicide: smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, eating junk food etc - all of which are known to kill people. Everyone knows the only reason they are allowed to keep existing is because someone is profiteering off the ways people distract themselves away from their inherent pain.
This is why many people are completely over dealing with other people’s attitude and behaviour. They are tired of being bombarded by the stupidity of the sheeple. They feel like screaming, “For God’s sake people, just wake the fuck up!”. Even if they do blow their lid and scream “ENOUGH!”, it doesn’t change anything. They usually go deeper into suppression, until the next time around the world drives them completely bonkers. Any wonder suicide rates are going up.
When I reached that point in life, I was fortunate enough to have a spiritual master take me aside. He said very emphatically, “I want you to understand just one thing Brian. There are no longer just irrationalities in the world. There are only varying degrees of insanity! So STOP expecting people to change their attitude and behaviour.” This cleared the way for me to focus all my energies on going within, which carries over into everything I share today.
Anyone who dares to break the mould is definitely going to be made an example of. Let’s find a good example - I know, let’s use the story of Jesus. Now this guy, he was supposed to be as good as you can possibly get. He was perfect - right up to end, then he cried out in pain and questioned God his father. But he quickly woke up to himself and totally surrendered, so it was all good. But we probably need to remember why was he nailed to a bloody cross in the first place. Ummm….Oh that’s right, because one of his closest friends betrayed him for money and got him arrested. Plus, his best friend denied ever knowing him - not just once, but three times - AND, his remaining friends abandoned him when all the people he was trying to serve turned on him. They even chose to free a criminal over him, and then protested until he was condemned to a slow grisly death.
I am by no means anti-Christian, it is just that the bible contains some of the best examples of humanity’s dark side. Which is why the story of Jesus was not created to teach us how to have compassion and forgiveness for those who harm us, or how to have unwavering trust in our Creator. If it was, then every Christian would be living a charitable life and be completely at Peace, having followed his example of how to forgive - and surrender even when being tortured to death.
No, his story wasn’t a message - it was a warning!
Be a good citizen and follow all the rules, but don’t be too good - otherwise, we’ll make
all your friends turn on you, and we may have to kill you.
This sinister message is a deterrent, which sets a precedence in the hearts and minds of every Christian. What chance have they got to make a difference if this is what happened to a guy pure and powerful enough to perform miracles? The story is suggesting the pits of hell await anyone prepared to stick their neck out or cross the invisible boundaries.
So at the end of the day, no one ever really does anything to change - the consequences are just too great. Besides, despite the wisdom of the ages, no one seems to have a clue on where we are missing the point, or even knows where to begin fixing this rotten mess. Most people are stuck in their roles, trying to validate their existence and keep the current paradigm going. If it isn’t part of their job description, then they will happily leave it for someone else to sort out. The only problem is, we are all in this together - and the only way we will ever get through this is if we all pull our heads in and work together.
However, unless we know exactly how to pull the plug on this cesspool of a society, we will never be able to stop and face the reality of our situation. Until we can look ourselves, and each other, in the eye and say, with absolute conviction and honesty, “I‘ve got you. I am with you on this!”, then we can ditch all the empty platitudes and warm and fuzzy clichés. We have to do whatever it takes to get on the same page so we can start anew. So what’s the answer?
The answer to this whole situation came to me at the end of ‘one of those days’. I had spent the day dealing with the extremes of ignorance, arrogance, stupidity and insanity. A night walk to the beach was needed to give me the inner space to make sense of my day. I thought about it deeply, and realised I needed to go back to the very beginning within my own experience. So I did.
As I walked and talked with my friend, I relived the earliest and most painful memories lurking in the crevasses of my mind. I dug deeper into them than ever before. Then the answer hit me. What was at their core is what makes people hate people.
The answer is:
Because we are killing each other!
- not directly, but indirectly, by killing each other’s creativity.
So could all the world’s problems be simply due to the suppression of the creative genius within each of us?
My answer is, YES! - absolutely.
If you look deep enough, you will see that all the deep-seated emotions plaguing us are the direct result of being denied the opportunity for our pure spontaneous creative expression. We are destroying each other’s opportunity to feel Oneness and Bliss. We deny Love. We inflict pain, and react with vengeance. This is because we are all suffering the very same thing. We are literally doing each other’s heads in. We hear it in flustered exclamations like, “OMG! This is killing me!” We are left 'hating' whatever or whoever we believe is responsible for the pain and frustration.
When you look at people who have an emotional or mental breakdown, you can see how they regress back to their child self. They go back to the age they were denied the chance to develop and grow through play and creativity. This default state is the point where they stopped developing the pathways that enable them to be who they are meant to be. When we are denied the opportunity to experience or express our creativity, our energies simply turn destructive. This is the real root of much of the violence and destruction in our world.
I facilitate a neurological remediation program - for people with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, autism etc. The most remarkable thing people and parents repeatedly told me was: “When they are doing something they love, they don’t have a problem.” Their symptoms would literally disappear. The best example of this is in the documentary ‘Horse Boy’, when a nonverbal boy speaks for the first time having climbed onto a horse.
My theory: A lack of creativity is at the root of all our social problems. To return to how we are truly meant to be, we just need to have fun doing what we truly love, and share it with as many people as possible. To make this a reality, we only need to honour a single Natural Law - DO NO HARM. If everyone just minded their own business, and left each other alone to do what they wanted, then we might all just find the Peace and Love we need.
