Ignorance is the essence of evil, but all that really is, is the lack of proper knowledge.
It's everyones' and no ones' fault.
All that's left for you to do is to forgive and release.
If you learned to control your mind you could avoid anger and increase happiness. Look to your own thoughts and start there. If you have free will you have the ability to transform your thoughts and emotions and guess what, when you do that for some reason other people treat you better. :)
I won't post again in this thread cuz it will hijack it but,
I am screwed then.
If what you say is true then I have no chance. The thoughts that i have are as follows:
Monsanto poisoned me.
Government lied and stole from me.
Politicians lied and belittled me.
The Bankers stole my wealth.
Everyone who was ever supposed to help me instead told me to just basically forgive all these things that were done to me.
How can i let go. I can't. My moral compass says this is wrong. This world is wrong.
I continue here, please come over (as to not hijack) and throw me a couple of more thoughts. Thread: fed up with the current BS
I think individuals can totally understand where you're coming from. Not that they necessarily still feel the way that you do, but that they either once felt that way or can sympathize with why you would harbor such feelings. Your sentiments are natural is what I'm getting at.
Now, if you want to move beyond these feelings, and I'd imagine that you do, because negative emotions, even projected outwardly, create discomfort and dysfunction within you, and no one wants to experience that as it is not beneficial to your state of being.
My advice to you if you seek to trascend these feelings would be to explore what you feel comes after this lifetime that you are living. How you feel about what comes next, or the 'bigger picture' plays a crucial role in defining your 'perspective'.
For example, if you (hypothetically) believed that your conscious experience/awareness was of a limited duration and that it ends at the time that your physical body perishes, you might find yourself feeling extremely livid over everything that we're forced to experience in this world. If a loved one passed away, you may feel that that individual is gone forever. If you were stuck in traffic for 3 hours, you may feel like you just lost a precious 3 hours of your life that you'll never get back. If you research the NWO and the corruption & deception that's inherent in our world, you may feel like you are getting cheated out of your one and only lifetime of conscious awareness and that others are completely ruining your one shot at experiencing this life. Essentially, it's like you have all your eggs in one basket. From this vantage point, we can envision how such an outlook would make it extremely difficult to endure and cope with what is experienced in this world.
Now what if you explored this subject matter and reached the opposite conclusion? What if you determined that your conscious awareness was infinite and indestructible? What if this current lifetime is not the only one you have ever experienced? What if you've lived many lifetimes? In this context your eggs are not in one basket. In this context you are just living through an experience and this current lifetime is not interpretted to be everything you have ever experienced or everything you will ever experience. From this perspective one could eventually learn to trascend fears (ultimately the fear of 'death' since it is illusory) and to rise above negative emotions that keep us locked in a low level of consciousness. From this perspective, for me, I look at the negative things transpiring in this world and maybe even around me and instead of feeling these circumstances are a threat to me, I now view them as merely temporary inconveniences.
There is no right or wrong answer about how you should feel. Different mindsets are appropriate for different stages of your journey of conscious evolution. My advice is to keep asking questions that challenge your understanding of the nature of your existence and see where it leads you.
