The title of this blog post is an understatement to say the least. Collapse of society is not a pretty thing, only inevitable. Despite the efforts of a good many, kind, caring people, what it really comes down to in the end is survival. The right to play in the game another day. The right to perpetuate the species into the future. How are we doing so far?

I first became aware of life seeming to speed up just after my first child was born. There never seemed to be enough time to get things done after that. It has only increased in intensity since then. The information explosion that has engulfed us has changed our reality forever. It can be extremely overwhelming. I think back to when I was a kid. Life was much simpler. Life was much slower paced. Kids today are so quick to be bored. Is it any wonder as the constant barrage of stimulation never ceases. As adults we also experience overload on a sometimes catastrophic bases. The information explosion brought on by the Internet has been a blessing and a curse. I myself am a self proclaimed information junkie! For better or for worse I have sworn to a life of truth seeking, and have quickly realised that most people do not share my love of truth.

You see, one of the first casualties of truth seeking is the very security you think you have that comes from beliefs. Most people choose comfort over truth any day. That's a big part of why we find ourselves at the brink of societal collapse. Yes we can blame the government, or the corrupt banking system or the influence of organized religion, but when you come down to it, we have chosen these systems to provide us with comfort and a sense of security. Collapse of societies brings devastation to most, but it also affords a few with a unique view. For you see, while the great bulk of humanity is deceived on multiple levels, those who stay true to there pursuit of knowledge which only comes from the truth, are rewarded with a breathtaking view. A view of the moment when failed systems are replaced by new ones. It is a given that if we stray too far from natural law, natural consequences will adjust the unbalanced situation. Often from our earthly, singular perspectives things appear unfair and downright wrong. I take great comfort in knowing that a vastly superior system is in place, that is beyond our human understanding, that keeps the balance, even if it appears not to exist.

I find this system to be best displayed here through the purity of intent of the individual. Simply put, do you intentionally deceive others for personal gain and comfort, or do you try to uncover the teach truth, regardless of personal benefit. What you come to discover is that uncompromising adherence to principals that are only discovered while searching for the truth, become the backbone of moral actions which allow you to begin to receive glimpses of this higher system, and begin to understand it's workings, and how to go about teaching about it and working with it to help build the next, hopefully more viable society, to replace the one that is collapsing. Truth seeking allows the seeker to eventually embrace this long view, and thus learn to not be so overwhelmed in the moment, especially in these times of decay of corrupt systems we are seeing unfold right before our questioning eyes!

As we proceed ahead, the unveiling will proceed with an increasingly rapid pace. Never has it been so easy to see the vast corruption and deception that underlies nearly every societal control complex (Governments, Religions, Monetary Systems). You can easily spot them by their constant use of fear to promote the dependence upon them for some form of comfort or protection. As we begin the long process of withdrawing our support of their rapacious, cancerous influence, it will appear to be a very chaotic, traumatic episode. It is supposed to be that way. The vigilance we have learned from truth seeking needs to be expanded upon during this time. We must never forget the painful process of the collapse in order to ensure this process never need be repeated in the future. It is a lesson we must learn completely. It is inevitable, we can either try to cling to the dying remnants or we can move forward, creating a society that can make the most of the natural, higher ordered system that made it possible to say the error of our ways to begin with. Maybe then we could finally embrace the fact that we must forgive but never forget the fact that obeying and never questioning anything, and allowing institutions to think and act for us, was a huge part of what got us into this mess to start with!
