A whole new world has opened up to you because you chose to be honest with yourself. Welcome.
Has someone said something to you or called you something that hurt you and pushed you into an argument because it wasn’t true?
You’re a racist.
You hate me.
You don’t care about your country.
“There’s a transition taking place from a material world view to a more spiritual world view, and civility is the first thing that goes out the window. Those holding on to the old world view begin to cling to their obsessions with ever greater ferocity, until their beliefs become an ideology-a system of ideas that are no longer based on truth. They’re based on the perceived idea that there’s an enemy out there threatening the world, and in such a dire situation, they fell it’s okay to give up on truthful democratic debate and legal procedure. The political left and right are moving to extremes because each thinks the threat is so great from the other side, that extreme measures need to be taken. It all self-reinforcing. When people exaggerate the facts they abandon truth, and then the law of karma kicks in, and each side draws in their opposites, who are lying as well. They fan each others’s flames. What’s worse, is that those in the middle, are constantly being accused of being extreme by both sides, so gradually everyone tends to be pushed towards the extreme opposite poles. The danger lies in this increasing polarization of political thought with more people moving to extremes everyday. Either side can become violent or despotic. Those in alignment must find a way to stand up to those in extreme ideologies.”
– James Redfield
I’m not asking you to believe this, and you might debate that there’s a transition actually taking place, but ask yourself if this excerpt from James Redfield’s “The Twelfth Insight” resonates true with you. Some of us are on the other side of this already waiting for you to join. “Yoohoo, we’re over here!”
