PARASITES: ATTACKING THEIR HOST FROM THE INSIDE OUT LEADS TO THE HOST ATTACKING OTHERS
Like cockroaches and jelly fish, internal pathogens [aka parasites] know no boundaries. They simply take over. There is a desperation in their actions to stay alive and reproduce. The age, social standing, sexual orientation, skin color, ethnicity often makes little difference. Parasites are internal “terrorists”. They have no empathy, they just want to proliferate. Very often people have similar personality traits of the pathogens that hold court in their bodies. Mass numbers of people unconsciously reproduce. They do this without considering their personal capabilities, or that of our belabored planet. These words may make sense to you. They may piss you off. For me, these observations have helped to create a deeper understanding of others. However, it is not so easy for me to feel empathy and compassion for people who are in denial about their personal situations and the highly tenuous condition of this beloved planet Earth.
EVERYONE ELSE IS CRAZY, NOT I!
When people have a inner terrain that is in balance and NOT overly populated by pathogens, they most likely have a greater sense of acceptance toward the world and others. However, even the most aware have limitations. Feeling defensive and closed minded is a sign of poor health. To recognize the poor health of those we see as our enemy is a sign of wisdom and maturity. I recently heard someone say that the world “needs” villains and heroes. Simply put, most of us need someone to be wrong so we can be right. We need someone to dislike. Why? Well, often to feel good about ourselves. Time is running out on this planet for immature behavior like that. Hot headed people of any kind culture, from any nation, using Chemical Weapons of any kind is one example. Powerful nations all over the globe are culpable.
WRITING HONESTLY IS NOT SO EASY, ALTHOUGH…
More than ever I truly admire people who write about what is going on with themselves in very personal ways. In a way that seems like they do not care what anyone else thinks. At this time in the world they face the opinions of others as never before. A time when mean spiritedness has a a platform like no other. That platform is the internet. People of all ages and sexual orientation are expressing their ugly words [often anonymously]. These words are often justified in the mind of the speaker by their own sexual, social, racial, economic fears and prejudices.
LEARNING FROM OTHERS
I began writing these blog posts in an effort to reach out and possibly meet others who were on a similar search. Looking for solutions to a dwindling feeling of vitality and all the repercussions that go with it. Meeting people and conversing outside this blog post has been a great help at times. It has also forced me to look at how I am influenced by the opinions of others. Getting to know people who have contacted me through this blog has at times curtailed what I say here to a certain degree. I am determined to not let this continue.
PARASITES: ON THE ATTACK BEHAVIOR
On a similar note, writing these blog posts I am again facing how the words of others effect my own self expression. This is not something I like to admit.Why? Sadly, for similar reasons. From what people tell me, it appears that what others think is of little consequence to me. This is due to my health and other lifestyle decisions. I must admit that, at times, it has taken great effort to go against the norm. Decisions that, in my opinion, only effect others by their perception of my decisions. How it may cause them to question their own decisions. What kind of decisions? One example is keeping my family surname after marrying. A total nothing burger in my book.
Besides myself I have seen the concern of what others think determine the actions and decisions of people I know very intimately, to those I only know by what I have read, and what others say. Reflecting on this has forced me to make some uncomfortable choices over and over again. Choices that challenge the decisions of others that are blatantly not in their best interest, or that of those around them. Like what? How about daily red wine consumption. I know CNN tells us it is good for our hearts. See how awkward things become when when you decline wine in the company of people who consume daily.
FOLDING TO SOCIAL PRESSURE, EVEN WHEN IT IS AGAINST OUR BETTER JUDGEMENT
When pathogens rule, people are easily manipulated, even if they do not think they are. We are all sold products and helped to make decisions based on what is best for the economy to keep growing. What our family, our tribe finds acceptable. Our jobs and investments, of all kinds, greatly shape these decisions. Shaming people into conformity is Advertising 101. How we look and feel needs to be acceptable in the eyes of others, or this is what we are deeply encouraged to believe. I have felt this. Have you? Maybe it is something you have never even questioned. Understandably so, because it could mean the end of marriages, other relationships, a job, and lifestyle. Several of the people I have met through The Unique Healing, CD Autism, etcetera want to “get better” so they can fit right back in. May work for some, but for many they will always have the feeling of being the outsider. Coming to peace with who we are is not so easy in a society that, for the most part, does not like change.
Advertisers know the psychological profile of most consumers. They know that the downfall of others peaks the interest of others. Understatement. Ever hear of The Enquirer Magazine [USA]? The media pressure distracts us from facing our own lives. In the similar sense people like to see their “team” win, and when it does they think so have they.To be a fan of a “team” that is not related to the tribes [aka families, country, schools, etc.] we come from is frowned upon. Trying to get members of our own family to change their philosophy can be a real uphill battle. I have learned after many years that leading by example is way more effective. In the end, you may not have converts, but they will respect you.
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH PARASITES?
A great deal. Questioning what pathogens, viruses and bacterial infections really are, and getting an honest answer can start an avalanche of changes that can rock our world and those of the world around us. I do believe there is a connection here to everything I have said previously about parasites and patterns of unconscious and addictive behavior. Somethings we all witness and participate in on some level. Connecting poor health with combative behavior has helped me to be more compassionate toward myself and others. It is way easier to have compassion toward others when we like them. Not so easy when we dislike someone, when their actions have hurt us. When their actions have hurt someone we care for.
So, if we have a sister, brother – in – law, neighbor, politician, etcetera whom we can not tolerate, it helps to pause and reflect. To see them as ill and not just “a crazy” can encourage compassion and understanding. It is a decision that can assist us in our own healing by not being reactionary and condemning. I have to laugh when I hear people say they do not judge others. I think we all do. Checking ourselves when we do is our most realistic plan of action.
DONALD TRUMP: CHIPPING AWAY AT OURSELVES AND OTHERS WITH A HACKSAW
One intention I have in writing these blog posts is to make the world a better place one blog post at a time. Words do matter, they have a vibration. Words touch others and set actions into motion. To be greater than these pathogens that CAN determine so much of our lives is the beginning of a movement toward greatness and compassion for ourselves and others. To turn our backs on hateful judgement is moving against a tide that is overwhelmingly encouraged today by the media. A major example is the uber – coverage of Donald Trump and his run for the Presidency of the USA. Two other examples is the media coverage of Boris Johnson in the UK. In the more recent past the late Rob Ford of Toronto, Canada. Johnson and Ford are two other Uber personalities that have received lots of media coverage for having little to no filter on their mouths.
During this endless primary season here in the USA, I have had people tell me they like the way Donald Trump “thinks”. Well, if that is thinking then sign me up for “Pet Rock” – inanimate object status. To think before we speak is something we could all do more of. Count to 10, or higher, before responding. The conscious use of words is a challenge we are all facing in this time of Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, etcetera. A time when every verbal fart has a platform for expression. Donald Trump is presently well known, here in the USA, as a middle to late night Tweeter. An out of control need to respond to all his critics. Whatever the outcome of this USA election is, this kind of hair-trigger reaction is not to his or anyone else advantage in the long run.
I am currently working with Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD on recovering my health. I have experienced major differences on all levels. I appreciate her honesty and patience. I am also grateful to the other healing modalities that I have participated in over the last 30 years, many of which I have written about in past blog posts. Some I have written more in depth than others.
Without compassion and understanding no true healing can take hold on a personal, or global level. Seeing what joins us [the essence of Yoga] and not what separates us is the only path to peace and true freedom.
