To live in today's world requires that one be tenacious, fearless, courageous and strong. The erroneous and irrational teachings that one should simply go out in the bushes and sing songs and praises around a campfire or go hug trees or meditate all day without using their creative powers, is simply cowardice. Certainly, the whole life can be a meditation, but not a passive-meditation, because meditation in itself is an active journey towards accomplishment.
Thus the misguided thinking that these so-called gurus, masters, spiritual ones and guided monks say to their students, claiming the life should only be lived passively and that one should not use what the earth has to offer to grow, is not only nonsense but illogical because the spirit cannot grow if no efforts are undertaken in the life. If no cognitions are built, no experience is had, then no knowledge and wisdom can come about thus leading to individual evolution and contribution to the world's continued growth.
Naturally, earth is polluted in so much rubbish and turmoil, sprinkled throughout most of its media; the TV, games, music, movies, entertainment, schools, education, parentage, etc. that to one seeking to be more aligned to effective reality, which is the true spiritual-living, then they can arrive at a point that may be very confusing to their continued evolution. To be more specific, those who wish to let go of all evil and negating-negative may find themselves in a paradox in daily life because earth is so ingrained with evil and non-peace that it is abundantly everywhere and so much that the whole planet's vibrational frequency is very low. Indeed, the bubble earthlings are in is such a low frequency, then they scratch their heads and wonder why aliens won't beam down and greet such a lowly evolved planet that cannot even unite as a world?
Any human born in any planet must use what they have available on the incarnated planet to grow, regardless if the human's spirit was born on another, more advanced world, it matters not, because the human can only grow through experience. Therefore, to the ones who blank out everything because they do not want to be bombarded by negative energies, be aware that you stifle your own progression. Of course, this by no means entails that the human should purposely go out seeking evil and negative; rather, the human should use the available resources and experience so that they can continue growing and testing their gained wisdom which leads to more certainty and confidence in the consciousness. It is thus important that the human being develops a neutral-positive auto-translator that can be used to automatically filter out the good from the bad.
There are enormous benefits to this translator. If one's spirit is truly from another world and has gathered massive knowledge in their storage banks, then they should be able to adapt like a chameleon to their environment and not wallow in excuses. This is necessary to not only survive in modern day earth but to also benefit from it because like a slingshot, that which is bad, negative and non-good, can hurl into becoming very great, positive and uplifting if the human being is to neutralize and equalize the experience. One should engage everything neutrally, to see things precisely as they are without exaggeration on either side of positive and negative, then, after the truth is seen and precisely undertaken as it is, the human can transmute the experience into positive.
For example, one may listen to a certain song, and parts of it may have horrible lyrics while the other may have good lyrics, and one can either choose to allow what is evil and bad in the song to bring them down and drive them into a depression, or see it exactly as it is; the truth, which is that the current time they live in is extremely unevolved and in order to get to the better times in the future, it is necessary earth goes through the turmoil so that they can learn good and positive. Therefore if one is to view it like this, they can then move on with joy and take the necessary positives from the negatives because one has to ask themselves, how do you expect to get into a future Utopia if we do not strip the good from the bad now?
It is very important that those who are truly on a path for true good, true peace, freedom, harmony, uprightness, honor, dignity, strength, might, firmness, true love, order, unity and development, must not be cowards. Running away and sticking your fingers in your ears will not help the situation. The truth is the truth which is why the state of the world must be confronted precisely as it is in order to make it better. If one is to shut out all the tools (experiences, people, places, things, entertainment, work, pretty much everything in the world) then how can this person progress and gather knowledge and wisdom in order to contribute to society and help make the world a better place?
To point the finger, judge and damn without doing anything to change it is useless. To say this and that is bad and refuse to be an active participant in society, regardless of its state, is to abandon your world. There are some in their ridiculous delusions and arrogance who assume that because they've reached a certain stage of understanding or gathered some knowledge, that they have no need to continue anymore. They think they should just isolate themselves from the world and forget about the rest of humanity. In their selfishness and egotism, they hinder their own evolution through the passing on experience and the wisdom that can come from it. Of course, this is not to say that one should continuously go back to the past and old evils like a drug because what was once used for growth does not need to necessarily be used again.
However, there comes a point where, even those who wish to hide themselves away from the rest of mankind, must, sooner or later, face mankind because without mankind they cannot even be alive. We are all connected even if we are separated and this is precisely why the wisdom-seeking human being who wishes to do well for themselves and the world, should build an auto-translator in their consciousness that can fine-tune things exactly as they are, whether the specific thing is good or bad, then make it good from there. This is just one of the necessary adaptations strong and wise human beings living on earth must develop in order to grow and prosper from the world they live in. It's impossible for any human being on earth to grow without using what is available to use. Therefore how the base consciousness is configured; the base thinking and the base psyche, plays an enormous role in how the human being can cope, deal with, and use their time here on earth for the betterment of their lives.
A pessimist is more likely to look down on everything, more likely to not even see the precious pearls hidden in the dark wool. They'd only point out the flaws without seeing any of the good that can come from it. They'd rather only talk about the end; only the bad than to see the bad and see what possible good can come from it. Naturally, an evolutive-optimism is necessary to create the auto-translator. Through a healthy, balanced optimism, one can see things exactly as they are, even if it is bad, and from there, strip apart that which is good to make it better. Human beings must make mistakes in order to grow. Those who dream of a better world must realize that this can only come through a constant waxing and waning which means that it is only through the constant toil and bettering of that which isn't good, can a success eventually be given and all that was once bad and collapsed, can be risen again and driven to new heights.
Surely if one is to point their thinking to Oneness (neutral-positive-equalized) then they will see that truly everything is indeed wonderful, even the bad, because it is through this can we learn to be better. Identifying this even in the smallest of scales will only help the human being deal with the necessary hardships and challenges of life and not be beaten down and drowned in an abyss of irrational thinking. Suffering is only caused through wrong modes of thinking. The law of harmony is broken when the human being fails to see the bigger picture; fails to see cause and effect. Naturally, cause and effect plays a significant role in the whole matter because if one is to observe society from this angle, one will be able to see that things are generally pushed one direction before it regenerates, gets better, then pushed another, and the cycle repeats over and over until relative perfection is achieved.
Thus it must be said that everything is indeed beautiful and everything and every creature, human, animal, all that crawls, flies and swims, are all beautiful, wonderful and Creational-gold that have their place in the universe. Each and every single experience is a wonderful one because it is only through the experience can we live, learn and grow. Woe only comes to those who neglect the beauty that is all around them at all times, ever-present, everlasting. Woe only comes to those who refuse to experience and think that life is only an non-equalized-positive hazy delusion or a non-equalized-negative gloomy nightmare. True positive-equalized can only come from the embracement of everything as one unison, and so, it is of enormous benefit if the human beings on earth develop methods and means such as a neutral-positive auto-translator to deal with the necessary experiences on earth which may still be very polluted. Like dirty water that becomes distilled through various processes - water is still water, thus experience is still experience, and what was once dirty can become clean. What was once horrible can become beautiful, and so, one should ask themselves - isn't life truly wonderful? There is no place, person, experience or thing that can take away this truth and all it takes is the human being's love of the truth and realization of effective reality to put this into practice and to truly live a life worth living, no matter the circumstance.
