Separating yourself from doom and gloom

Seeing through a mountain of lies and realizing what is happening on this planet does not equal surrender; nor does it equal living inside a bubble of doom.
I should know. For more than 30 years, I’ve been relentlessly exposing the lies of great institutions and societies. I could say, “Well, I’ve earned my stripes as an eternal cynic. All human activity is destined to fail.”
But I’m not that person. I never have been.
Nor do I walk around with a glazed grin on my face, fantasizing about Disneyesque rainbows and aliens 100000 light years away who will come and save us.
Under any and all conditions that have ever existed on this planet, an individual human being has always had the opportunity to make a choice: sink into a swamp of despair, or make things better.
And there are numerous examples of men and women, living in far, far worse situations than you or I, who have made the latter choice, against all odds.
Understanding the depth of corruption that exists on planet Earth is supposed to be a prelude to action. It is supposed to be a confirmation of what you have long suspected.
“All right. Good. Now I see that I was right all along. My perception is untainted. I don’t have to live in the middle ground of doubt anymore. Now I know. And now I can do something. Unless I want to weave tales about how nothing can be done and nothing works; unless I want to opt for creating hopelessness.”
But oh, wait a minute. There are untold numbers of people who, when it comes to doing something, say, “I don’t know. What can we do? How can we win? I don’t have any answers.”
This is a confession that something is missing from the arsenal of the individual.
This speaks to a losing mode of thinking that accepts only standard responses to problems—and finding those responses insufficient, drops back into despair.
“I can only see A,B,C,D, and E as possible reactions to what is happening in this world, and those reactions are futile. So I’m done. That’s it.”
And for that, a gold star should be awarded?
No, I’m afraid not.
The truth is, when most people try to access their imaginations, they actually stare at what other people have proposed as solutions instead. They make that error. They find no other options.
“Look, I want to run. I want to run like the wind. But I can only use other people’s legs to do that, which obviously won’t work, so I can’t run. End of story.”
Another version of that is: “Every solution that can be invented has already been invented. So why should I try or care?”
That’s like an artist saying, “Every painting that could be painted has already been painted. So this is the end of the line.”
There is no end of the line.
