I recently watched True Detective.
Season 1 was good. Season 2 was way too violent. Shooting. Shooting. Shooting.
In the real world most people don't walk away unscathed and unrattled from gun battles.
Everyday in Miami you hear of children killed by stray bullets because some clown(s) sprayed their house/apartment.
Mothers cry, their child gone forever replaced by a lifetime companion named Grief.
"We see these crying mothers but what they don't say on the news is that the mother's dead 12 year old boy put on a hoodie..."
That's when I stopped him. the man sitting next to me at the bar with whom I was chatting.
"DO NOT minimize a mother's grief!," I said to him.
To his credit, he did back down.
A friend recently recommended I watch Lucy.
An illicit drug gives Lucy superhuman powers. Now she heartlessly kills whoever gets in her way because the drug enables her "to use 100% of her brain capacity."
Like Nietzsche Hollywood tells us a "superhuman" is compassionless.
It seemed to me, as I watched the film Lucy, the drug synthesized from pregnant women would make her, like a good mother, more compassionate not less.
Another Hollywood movie, The Fifth Element, says the only hope to save humanity is "the 5th element." They are right.
In Vedic science the first element is akasha, the usually ignored 5th element of our upside-down world. The other four elements, derived from the akasha, are air, fire, water, and earth
The feeling of akasha is one of pure unconditional love and compassion.
In The Fifth Element Hollywood characterizes "the only hope to save humanity" as a bunch of little big boys fighting over a beautiful female with the fuckable body of an adult and the mind of a child.
Really the only hope for humanity is to restore balance by opening the heart, feeling the akasha, and by respecting the wisdom of the feminine.
MEAN people want to keep us fighting in a compassionless world because they think it gives them power.
They think they understand the occult and they think they are using dark forces to help them gain power in this world.
They slaughter women and children in sacrifice. They do.
They are so stupid.
The Divine desires mercy, not sacrifice, and to love with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself.
I hear it all the time, "I blame my neighbor for the problems in this country. He voted for...."
Here we are.
While the $dollar is still easily convertible to "I Me Mine", the complacency is unlikely to change.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
When we have to work together again, what's gonna happen?
What will we choose?
Will we choose Love of the Divine or the compassionlessness sold to us by our Hollywood masters?
It ain't gonna be pretty.
