About mental fog, delusional wishes and how to develop keen observation.

We are constantly bombarded by information. We seek in multiple channels what speaks to us, according to the place we are in life. Sometimes that changes, and cognitive dissonance ensues, in order to achieve some sort of harmony in our soul's melody.

The internet, social media especially is full of wishful thinking and delusional paranoia, pronoia and both extremes. It's easy to think, extremelly easy, that the world is both awful and awe-full. It's easy to think we are completely helpless and it's easy to think, by looking at how human beings basically control the planet, how we can achieve some sort of God Status. In the case of spirituality, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking we can get divinity status simply by awakening our souls into realms of the unknown. This makes us fall into the traps of delusion. In extreme cases, medical intervention is necessary. I've seen throughout my life multiple cases of people who've "awakened" to states that simply can't ever be possible for the human being. Being real with ourselves, what are our true capabilities, what we can achieve, the GOOD we can bring into the world, is in fact much healthier for us than to believe we can enhance capabilities and be super-humans (remember Neitzsche who said God is dead? I blame him for this epidemy of confusion.) It's easy to believe we can only change things if we're super-human, because we feel so helpless by the pain that surrounds us. In fact, and in reality, every kindness act, every good gesture, every smile and shared meal helps another person fight the loneliness that this life of extreme consumerism and disdain for what in fact, simply is - call it Mother Earth, God, Goddess, Divine Plan, what have you. My question here is, what does truly matter here? That we awaken delusional superpowers within ourselves, or that we grab what we've established in our lives, develop our talents and find what truly matters to make this world a better place?
A big spirituality trap is to fall for the delusion that we can be Gods on this planet, when the truth of the matter is that no one truly knows what a God even is, what it means, we just feel helpless.
So, my next questions are: How to empower women and men all over the world to make a change in our environmnents that truly matters? How to bring more kindness and less insanity into this world? How to be more in tune with what is our identity, how to develop a healthy ego? These questions are truly meant to provoke, to create a question inside of you that brings you to a land of sanity in the craziness that is the flow of life.
We are not robots that need tweaking to be made better, we are people who deserve self-care, self-love and to not be exploited by others who think they can profit from our ignorance over ourselves.
Are human beings destined to be controled by delusion, or can we start looking at humanity with the fresh look of a new beginning?
How can we not fall prey to the insanity of others? How can we protect ourselves from harm? With love, kindness and self-care, which means self-protection.

With love,
Matilde.
