As honest and sincere people try to force their views onto others, bickering and arguments break out. How did we get to this? Has our behaviour been modified to bring out the worst in us? Has propaganda and mind control played a part?
Tessa Lena explores all this in a recent article and concludes that the answer is “we have to grow our spiritual spine.
I don’t want to write a juicy gossip column on “who said what and which team to choose” since the sporting team mentality is a train to nowhere and a killer of all things good. I fully trust your brilliant selves to read perspectives from every side and make up your own minds – and then change your minds as many times as you want based on the information and your gut.
One thing I am going to say for the sake of logic and facts is that I don’t think that Mattias Desmet used the concept of “mass formation” to blame the crowds – he merely said that such a thing exists, and it does.
Is “mass formation” real?
Short answer: yes, but the short answer is not enough.
Let’s start with our roots. Who are we on this Earth? Why are we here in the first place? (Just a small question, so … ummm… no pressure at all.)
We, human beings, exist in multiple worlds (the “quantum” word would be “dimension,” if you prefer intellectual words). We exist in what we call “the physical world,” or “material world” – which we can see, hear, and touch – and we also exist in other dimensions, whose presence we can only sense. Life is everywhere, where we can see and where we cannot. The poetic word for the dimensions that we cannot see is “the spiritual realm.”
Our ancestors knew this very well. We forgot.
In fact, we in the modern world have been so thoroughly robbed of this basic understanding of our important parts that we often self-harm, or pretend that we only live in the material world and that nothing has a soul. The history of how it came to be this way is its own beast but for the purpose of this story, we can just say that we do exist in different worlds, and our different parts talk to each other all the time.
