Note: before reading this blog, it might be an idea to visit the loo and then put on a cuppa. It’s lengthy… but worth a read.
What would happen if a cosmological being was sent on a mission to visit Earth, morph into human form and then report back on its observations? This is how it might read…
During my visit to Earth, the strange behaviours I observed led me to question human sanity. Here’s what I unravelled…
Many humans in ‘advanced’ western cultures are pre-occupied with money. The more they get, the more they spend. Most appear to spend more than they have, then borrow more money from institutions that charge more money to do so. This is called debt. Most of these institutions are very wealthy because they have little regard for humanity. Then humans have to work harder to get more money to pay back the debt. Confused? I was!
It appears that these problems are caused by greed – a condition where many humans and institutions desire more than they need.
Because many humans work long hours, they have less time to relax and be with their loved ones. To counter this, they wait until they retire (which means they stop working when they are older) so they can relax and have more time with loved ones. But in the meantime many become agitated, develop a condition called stress and suffer from deteriorating health. This often results in relationships falling apart and then there’s no loved one to spend time with.
To relieve their agitation they put many peculiar things into their bodies including a liquid substance called alcohol, which causes blindness if consumed undiluted. To prevent blindness, they mix in other liquids to dilute the alcohol. This has strange effects on their bodies and their behaviour, including unusual speech patterns, hysterical laughing, shrieking, crying, losing balance and becoming aggressive. One of the by-products of this alcohol epidemic is an abnormal amount of violence and vehicular accidents – except most are not accidents because they are preventable.
I asked many humans why they drink this liquid and they told me they do it to relax or have fun. When I asked what was preventing them from relaxing or having fun without alcohol, they didn’t appear to know.
Some said it brought out their true personality, so I asked why they needed alcohol to do that. They did not know. Some said they drank to escape. “Escape from what?” I asked. “A meteor shower, tsunami or avalanche?” It appears that they use alcohol to escape from themselves. But why?
After drinking alcohol, many humans feel very sick and make solemn vows called ‘never agains’. But alcohol must affect memory, because believe it or not, within a short space of time they are back at it.
There are also huge, wealthy organisations where toxic chemicals are blended with crushed dried leaves and the mixture packed into small paper cylinders. Around a billion humans pay trillions of dollars to light the cylinders and suck in the poisonous smoke, which damages their respiratory systems and causes various illnesses, often ending their lives prematurely.
Most humans know this is bad for them, but they choose to continue and would rather sacrifice their lives than cease to suck in chemical-laced smoke. This is where the term ‘sucked in’ comes from.
There is also a leafy plant which many dry, then pack it into paper cylinders or glass vessels. They light the substance and breathe the smoke in deeply. The effect is zombie-like behaviour smattered with outbursts of uncontrollable laughter. Consistent use results in diminished brain function and delusions for which many require small tablets for the remainder of their lives in an attempt to balance this condition.
Some inject a liquid made from poppy flowers directly into their blood stream while others sniff powder through their noses. When asked why, a common response was “It’s OK, it’s natural.”
When I mentioned that snake venom and strychnine are natural, so why not sniff or smoke them, there was no response (apart from one human who said he would ‘give it a go’ – but he passed out before that was possible).
No-one is forced into these rituals. It is a choice that many consider to be quite normal because others do the same. Why do they follow each other to self-destruction?
Yet this was only the beginning of my discoveries…
Governments (a group of humans who are elected by fellow humans to manage their countries) contribute to this cycle of violence, death and devastation. This occurs because governments have a vested interest from collecting lucrative taxes on the white cylinders and billions of litres of alcohol that humans pour down their throats.
Ironically, much of the money is needed to pay for more nurses, doctors, hospitals and rehabilitation centres to help these ill-fated humans.
Meanwhile, other government agencies continue to approve more licences to sell more alcohol and permit longer drinking hours. Should it not be reversed? Go figure! (That’s an Earth term meaning “What the?!”)
Then there are non-alcoholic drinks laced with sugar and caffeine. Television screens tell humans these drinks will boost energy. That is not true. These drinks give a false boost of energy for a brief time, only for the human to experience a fall when it wears off. This eventually results in the collapse of the human energy system.
Governments also have other ways to raise funds. In many of the buildings where humans drink alcohol, there are many rows of machines adorned with flashing lights and sounds to attract donors. Humans put money into the machines hoping they will receive more back than they put in. But this is impossible because the venues and governments ‘take’ a percentage of the contributions.
From ‘the take’, huge buildings have been built to house even more machines. In America, a religious group and crime syndicates developed a city called Las Vegas from ‘the take’. Every year, millions of humans go there to donate their money and drink alcohol.
Some humans become elected members of government so they can make heartfelt decisions to serve fellow humans. Yet most eventually make decisions according to the will of the group they have aligned with. Their intention to help humanity dissipates. What becomes more important is retaining power at the expense of what is right and fair for all.
Some humans are considered beautiful because they have symmetrical facial structures (compliments of the lucky sperm club). ‘Beautiful’ humans are often acclaimed by other humans. I found it quite odd how humans praise other humans’ bone proportions.
Many ‘beautiful’ people are used as mobile clothes hangers to display various garments.
Some ‘beautiful’ people are involved in a vocation called acting where they mimic others and appear in movies that are beamed onto large screens. An annual contest determines the best actors and the best films, but only those associated with the acting industry vote. Humans who watch the movies do not. The real reason for the competition is to dress up, be noticed and praised.
Many actors are very wealthy, yet insecure, although idolised by numerous humans. This is most peculiar, particularly as those who teach children and care for humans in hospitals receive little recognition and are paid very little.
Humans have even de-nourished their own food supply. Crops and food have been modified and controlled by large corporations who seek to make huge profits. Most of the Earth’s population has lost its natural vitality. Many humans are either very large or very small.
Eating has become an obsession in developed countries where cooks become celebrities. Believe it or not, they even compete on the television to see who can make the best meal.
I also came across extremely wealthy corporations involved in producing small tablets which assist humans to sustain their lives and give them relief from illnesses, diseases and anxiety… most of which are self-inflicted. Many humans in poor countries are denied access to the tablets because they do not have money. But the companies have more money than they need.
I was beginning to despair as I continued to ask myself, “Are humans insane?”
But I was looking forward to attending one of Earth’s biggest events called the Olympic Games which occur every four years, where humans from countries around the world gather together to play games, also known as sport. Initial reports indicated it was a celebration of unity. But that was not the reality.
What I saw was a commercial monolith focused on politics, image, lucrative sponsorship and television profits. From the thousands of humans who participated there were winners, and there were many others called losers. I felt the despair of many of the losers who did not perform to a preconceived standard after torturing their bodies for four years to prepare for the competition. If this event represents global unity, then what is left? Where else can humans find true harmony?
This concept of winning is unique to humans. Winning means beating or triumphing over another. It may not mean hurting another physically – although the effect can be emotionally devastating, resulting in ongoing behavioural problems.
A popular activity many humans engage in is hitting a green sphere over a fence with an object that looks like a musical instrument called a banjo. Known as tennis, there appears to be much love in this game, because they repeat the word regularly. But there is not. The person who wins the last point is the winner. That person feels elated while the other does not. There are four major global tennis events each year. At each there is a male and a female winner who feel elated and another 254 humans who do not.
This is common to most sports.
Other activities include boxing and martial arts, where rowdy humans yell and scream to encourage the participants to hurt each other (similar to football).
Winning extends further. Leaders of some countries like to be winners, so they declare war on other countries. A boundary (an imaginary line on the ground) is often the catalyst for fighting, torture, death and misery. Even humans within their own countries kill each other and leaders turn armed soldiers against fellow citizens.
I saw wars fought over oil, greed, power and religion. Some leaders of countries with weapons of mass destruction say other countries cannot have those weapons, or they will attack them. Yet it appears to me that even though these leaders may triumph, they are indeed losers.
Even language is changed to dehumanise atrocities. Instead of saying, “We attacked an enemy and also murdered other innocent humans who had no involvement”, they now say “There was collateral damage.”
I saw large, gentle creatures called whales slaughtered in the name of science, while governments lacked the courage to stand up against the executioners. I also saw revolutionaries on the high seas using aggression and intimidation against other humans to ‘protect’ these non-violent animals. Is this not ironic?
There is so much more to report, however, enough is enough. It is time to present my conclusions…
On Earth I saw greed, corruption, obesity, malnutrition, disease, loneliness, disrespect, envy, disregard, anger, violence, murder, abuse, control, manipulation, separation and more extraordinary abnormal behaviour.
Many humans live in ‘hope’, but the reality is that hope is futile because it is an intangible somewhere in the future. And the future, like tomorrow and like hope, will never come; it is always distant.
But more importantly is ‘NOW’, and ‘now’ is the place where I eventually unravelled the questions I had about humanity.
It was easy to see what was wrong on Earth, but I needed to be more vigilant to seek what was true. I realised I had focused on what humans did, rather than who they truly are. I had neglected to genuinely connect and be totally present with humans when I communicated with them.
And then when I did, something magical happened. I looked into human eyes and I saw sadness, despair, fear, resignation and sometimes almost nothing. Yet there was something else I saw – a flicker, a glow.
In a moment of revelation I recognised that within every single human on Earth, even the most disturbed, is a light: an inner-fire just waiting to be kindled. For some the light is dull, for others it is a bright glow radiating out and touching others.
That light is Love.
Most humans have chosen to build protective shields to hide their light. They appear to be continually dousing water onto a fire that refuses to go out.
Humans feel hurt from an absence of love. Yet ironically, their natural essence is love, which is omnipresent from childhood. But humans shut it down and deny loving themselves. Hence the hurt and the abnormal destructive behaviours I saw on Earth.
Ironically, by doing so, they are missing out on a life of constant joy.
Love is the most powerful and unifying agent in the universe. And no matter how many reject it or fight against it, love is expanding on planet Earth right now.
More and more humans around the planet have made the choice to discard the abnormal, unloving lives they previously lived and instead, now live with self-care, compassion, brotherhood, service, love and freedom.
The changes in their lives have inspired others to live with love and discover how wonderful life really is. In turn, more humans will be inspired and so it will continue.
So to answer the question, “Are humans insane?” the answer is “No”.
Humans have simply lost their way without comprehending how much love and potential they hold within.
A little crazy? Yes.
