Our Garden

We create our own relative environment with culture. When our culture is producing negative results, we focus mostly on punishing the results and allowing ourselves to feel good about it by collectively agreeing that it is good to punish these results. The culture remains as it is and we find ourselves punishing more and more results. Is this not apparent in our logic? A change in culture must not be forced, it just has to be nourished.

The illusion of hope.

Until we find real hope in each other, we will continue to dedicate our earnings to prisons of false hope, sold to us by opportunists who depend on our hopelessness. It is all an illusion that does not exist by necessity but by circumstance.

This is not Martin vs Zimmerman

It is not a case of Martin vs Zimmerman. It is a case of Martin and Zimmerman vs the fear of each other. Fear was able to grip them instead of their sense of awareness. The ability to fearlessly control the outcome of a situation instead of being dictated by fear into inevitability. We want to oppose one person in order to justify the other and call it a day, never learning the lesson that this is the best outcome fearing each other will ultimately bring us. Fearless does not mean being blind to danger. Danger will be apparent with awareness, fear is a mechanism for survival that uses primitive brain function that is not capable of leading us to the best outcome. I feel love and pain for both parties involved. Let’s stop choosing sides and grow from our lessons.

Is fear an effective tool to reach morality?

Would you be a moral person if your reasoning to be moral was only from fear of consequences? Would your true sense of right and wrong fade away because it is no longer used? If somebody is religious just so they won’t go to hell or wherever, what good is that? Why is fear our primary tool instead of culture and education? Why is this not obvious? Look at where money gets spent and it is clear that we are banking on fear rather than education and culture. Maybe people have lost hope in themselves and others. We punish rather than nourish and are convinced that more punishment will fix the lack of nourishment.  It is all backwards…
