Humans are extremely weak. Although they have a strong body and strong will, they have weak minds. One can coax any human into saying or doing anything with just a little emphasis and conviction. This is how we have come to the point in life that we have arrived at today. We all are spellbound by an intriguing sound. We live by the word and follow great orators. We quote great authors and well spoken philosophers. We live our lives in such a strict experience of our five physical senses. Especially what we see and hear.
The rapture was to arrive on May 21, 2011. It is now May 22, 2011 and all is well with life on Earth. There are many followers of this man, Harold Camping, and many of them took the “warning” seriously. There are some in the U.S., if not the world, who quit their jobs in order to prepare for the “event.” These people risked their well- being for the sake of what some random radio show host said would happen. People are so feeble minded and gullible. It is truly sad at times.
On reality television, in the music industry, in the film industry and in the fashion industry, many companies have been able to create their own zombies by brainwashing the public into believing in a certain type of lifestyle. Everything must be lavish and expensive. Life is all about the finer things. What is your net worth? If it isn’t much, then get your money up! Who are you wearing? What size looks good on camera? What is your best angle? Viewers and clientele all feed into the latest fad and craze and consume endlessly. Society is always “keeping up with the Jonses”, and that is how we like it. Right? People go to various extremes, including expensive wardrobe editing and hard dieting, just to fit in and look current. It is pathetic.
Everything is so superficial. Everything is so disconnected. We see with our eyes, not with our hearts. We hear with our ears, not with our souls. We taste with our mouths, not with our stomachs. We feel with our hands, not with our hearts. We speak with our mouths, not with our minds. Just because we hear it, we believe it. Just because we see it, it must be true. We cannot continue to allow ourselves to be so easily deceived because we refuse to allow our selves to have any depth. We no longer know how to truly communicate. There is no spiritual connection. We have lost touch the the experience of life. Most people simply live life, not experience life. It is the experience of life that helps everything to come together and make sense. We should all go beyond the life we are living, and feel the experience. All will be right with the world again.
