I just finished watching a video documentary that connected a lot of depressing dots between Hollywood, the news media, the giant corporations that censor free speech, a global cult of powerful religious pedophiles, and the apparent partial takeover of the CIA by Nazis who were brought into the US after WWII via “Project Paperclip.”
There’s no end to real (as best I can tell) conspiracies where powerful people hurt the rest of us through brainwashing, legalized theft, child trafficking, etc., etc.
And seriously, kudos to the brave people who offer us the red-pill. It’s a valuable perspective. But…
Do I really want to focus on evil right now? Do you?
Maybe it’s time to think about something astonishingly wonderful.
Consider this energetic young man, Paul Rosolie, who’s living big in Peru, doing something of epic value for humanity in the Amazon Rainforest. His life-and-death encounters are spellbinding and should rattle the cages of us complacent US citizens.
While I was watching this, I had to remind myself that nobody’s right about everything. Sure this busy kid briefly disrespects the great Gram Handcock at one point in the video. I can forgive him for a lot more than that. If only Paul were a bit older and wiser, though, he’d realize that Gram Handcock is on his side in his planet-saving work and would promote Paul’s story to Gram’s huge audience of independent thinkers with no hesitation. If only.
But nobody’s perfect. People like me have to remind ourselves of this because…
If your friends and lovers have to be perfect, you’ll soon have no friends or lovers. Same deal with worldviews. If your religious or spiritual worldview has to be perfect, you’ll either live in chronic denial to stay semi-connected to a group, or you’ll find yourself behind closed doors singing alone over your new acoustic carbon guitar, “But I’m near the end and just ain’t got the time, And I’m wasted and I can’t find my way home.”
Please find the time to listen to Paul Rosolie’s whole video interview and see if it doesn’t help you find your way home to your tribe. You’ll probably feel inspired and hopeful. And maybe you could check out his website here and join him. Or at least forward his video (or this post) to three of your truest friends. One of them will probably thank you profusely.
