Your Coping Mechanisms?

Recommended Posts

Something which has always been a weight on my shoulders is how to process, internalise, rationalise and ultimately deal with acts of extreme evil. 

 

The abuse of innocent defenceless animals and children. The neglect of the frail, disabled and the elderly. The destruction of our planet and natural resources. The deletion of cultures and the re-writing of history. In an 'idealic world' just one of the aforementioned would provoke feelings of anger and injustice, but just how dulled have we become? 

 

People of the 'postage stamp consensus' genuinely believe that becoming a police officer will put the bad people in jail. Or joining the fringes of a political party and lobbying on a local level will help get to the root cause of issues. 

 

The above is admirable, but for me it never scratches the surface because you are ultimately propping up the system whilst trying to fight manufactured parts of said system. 

 

In examples of extreme evil which i'm seeing so much of today, a part of me dies every time I hear or see such acts. You try and help when and where you can and be the change you want to see. My biggest coping mechanism is having faith in the creator and that one day all the wrongs will be righted. I try to stick to the very basic principles of causing no harm, loss or injury to your fellow human. 

 

 

What coping mechanisms do you employ when you see, hear, experience evil which is beyond comprehension?

Ora et labora. Latin for "Pray And Work".

 

God tells us in scripture that when the going gets rough, we should turn to him and pray to him.

I kick the local priest or vicar in the nuts! They cross the road now when they see me walking towards them. 

The Vatican were infiltrated decades ago by Soros. That explains all the paedophilia that went to on globally. Then they brought out an 80 page document written in Latin called 'Crimen Solicitationis' which was used to make sure all the perpetrators were protected and victims excommunicated from the Catholic church if they continued to try and press charges. 

 

I wrote a letter to the Catholic / Anglican Diocese and  all the priests/vicars in my county last March  entitled... 'The Devil comes Calling And The Church Runs Away'. It was condemning all the 'men of God' for closing down the Churches and running away from evil.  At a time when old people needed their spiritual comfort, the church slams the doors shut.

A few days later, an article appeared in the Times newspaper almost exactly the same. One of the head Church people had perhaps sent the letter off to one of his contacts in the media (rather than reply to me) or it was just a coincidence.  I used to be a journalist and this is what they do now. These so called graduates who have completed their media studies and obtained their little degree at university are nothing more than brainless, government administrators.    

 

The Pope and Archbishop are just as much disgusting cretins as any of the lying media giants and all those who work in them in accepting the millions and carrying out the wishes of their pay masters.

While I like to stay informed on the cabal's activities, for the sake of my sanity I do need to unplug and not take in too much negative information. You can get consumed by it and it lowers vibration, feeding the fear and disillusionment the cabal thrive on. Gratitude is the best coping mechanism. Unplug from the over saturation of media and social media information and be grateful for the good things in life like walking in nature, connecting with people that we love and immersing ourselves in the positive pursuits or creative endeavours we enjoy. It's all about maintaining a healthy balance between the different kind of information we choose to focus on.

Yes, too easy to get consumed by negative information.  I have to step back sometimes otherwise my head will explode from all the reading and digesting, this is particularly important for being able to get to sleep at night thus not having an over-stimulated mind.  Enjoy other different interests that don't make any demands of you.

I consider why I did the evil I did in my life, and yes it definitely happened.  And in so investigating I come to understand how people function inside, which gives me insight.  Insight into the very bad internal desperation of human beings who really don't know what they are doing.  It also de-escalates the judgement and hatred somewhat.

Then I follow the Buddha in investigating the solutions, at all levels, but particularly the real solutions which involve great internal change through long-term skillful practice and devotion.  Devotion is when you learn how to change and then change.

And then I consider that as I am changing, that this is as good as it can be.

And then I feel at peace.

And then I listen and read people who remind me that if you can do 1 hour of prayer a day, then you can do 10 hours ... and I keep listening to them, and it changes me.

Respect for Buddhism all the way. My ex delved into it in a big way and it was very powerful to me but two things stopped me at the time.

1. I've never done evil. I've started relationships for my own gratification all over the world and then turned my back on them but that's not evil - just a sub -conscious consequence of coming from a broken family and not wishing to get involved in marriage / children. (I'm not suggesting Buddhism is only for evil people.) 

2. I genuinely love fucking with certain people's heads in a humorous manner, not in an obnoxious, ignorant or reprehensible way. Lawyers and politicians are my target but these spineless cretins always head for the exit route all because I do nothing more than expose a few home truths about their chosen lifestyle and how it impacts on others. I never want to lose the fire in my belly because I know how absolutely corrupt some of these people are who say 'yes' five hundred times a day to please their superiors just to advance one more rung up that putrid career ladder while stabbing you in the back.

You have candour so there is hope for you, but you have much to learn.

Perhaps you have not suffered enough to question your whole approach, or to need something of a higher ilk inside you, or to have more compassion for others or for the whole situation.

Yes fire in the belly must never go out ... but what is this fire really for, and how can I act in a true way in such a situation ... what are my real responsibilities.

These are real questions ... I am not pointing to any off the shelf answer because having a real answer coming from inside is the only kind that really matters.

I have had many similar contemplations in the past. What I can say so far and from my experience is, that, the best way to take action to make the world more harmonious, is to work on yourself. After all, it is from within each of us that the world we experience arises, so it's the best place to start from - and you will see the ripples. Once the "inner" worlds have been re-configured, then the "outer" world will reflect the changes. 

 

You be the cause!

Understand, that Evil and acts of Evil are coming from Corrupted Forms of Energy / Expression...

If you have the Means or Power to,

You can Fight it :
Physically - Direct Action
Verbally - Dialogue / Creating Awareness
or by
Intent / Prayer - Spiritually / Metaphysically

In that order.

How do you reply back using just the name and not the whole quote? 

Every single person on the planet will experience one or more of the four 'D's at some stage. Death (not your own obviously), Debt, Divorce. Disease (or life changing accident.) 

What every person will not experience however or even be aware of it's existence is paedophilia at the highest levels in the establishment. It's too fantastic for most people to contemplate the notion that judges, police chiefs politicians can meet up every so often to perform Satanic / Masonic Ritual Abuse on children who have either been 'lifted' from a care home or disabled in some way. 

I would say that Britain is arguably the most corrupt country in the world (can you name a country more corrupt?). Probably around 90% of people still believe that Britain is this virtuous, upstanding beacon of morality responsible for the Magna Carta whose legal system was copied by many countries all over the world. It's my belief that those people need a good kicking. Even I'm shocked at the way the British public has responded to this virus acting like pathetic, whipped dogs. I genuinely thought there would be more resistance. 

I'm not so sure what you mean exactly by 'suffered enough' but all I can say that if you anger the Gods in this country without having committed any crime, you will experience the darkest, most malevolent forces who will use agents of the state (police) to hound and torment you with much venom. 5:00am raids, no apologies, constant threatening letters, a media that is now bought  (utterly useless and 100% complicit), rancorous politicians,  disbelieving lawyers  too terrified to take your case on. If they have nothing on you and you don't back off, they will catch you doing 31mph in a 30 mph zone or jay walking and that's  all they need to make you appear in a court six times in ten months in a court 100 miles away from where you live and with each appearance they pretend they haven't got all the documentation to force you to reappear two months later.  It's a relentless, psychological battering designed to drive you insane because that's all they have if they wish to 'keep up appearances'.

Step off a plane in Africa, Asia or South America  and within minutes you'll be having a conversation with a local telling you of all the corruption in his country - the corrupt police, politicians, lawyers etc. Not so in Britain. They disguise it much better in Britain.

Okay, but let's look a little deeper.  There is this idea of the noble savage, in some un-civilized parts of the world the perfectly untouched and pure primitive man.  Is it actually so?  No, not really ... but this idea that without civilization everything is wonderful is actually a lie.

I am afraid life is just very difficult, it is the price for growing out of the animal kingdom ... our intelligence can create very dark things like you mention, but our intelligence does not work for free ... it requires great and grave effort to continuously straighten the line.  And the entire society must work in the same direction.  Or our additional intelligent faculties will turn to evil.

Going back is just not possible, we will never be pure primitive savages.

And ... let's look at some details.

In the animal kingdom there is not "noble behaviour", I'm afraid ... there is dark parasitism ... birds who surround and peck another bird to death - there is no virtue in that, it is evil as well.  The tribal lynchmob exists in the animal kingdom as well.   The big animals will kill you and eat you whilst you are still screaming ... they ... just take your energy.

So ... LIGHT is very rare here, very rare.

That is why we still remember Buddha and Jesus from 2,500 years ago, because it is rare.

And this arrogance that things would be okay, if it weren't for x,y,z who are screwing it up, because I am really really nice, really I am.

Are you?
Are you, really really nice?
It is only when you really look in the mirror ... what am I thinking ?  What am I doing ... only when you see the darkness inside you that you understand.

But this world is challenging, and there are no easy answers ... there is darkness in society, and one must be cautious and efficient, and be under no illusions.

But this planet is just waking up ... there is some Light here, but mostly darkness.

One must choose Light, again and then again, and then again.

It is for warriors only.

For others they have no strength and fall into hatred, blame, and finger pointing and simply do not do the work of getting out of here.

They neither straighten the line in their own existential journey, nor in the practical matters of looking after their own business.

Life is difficult, humans are at a difficult place where corruption is rife.

One must be brave and do useful practical and real things.

Maybe if you just be yourself 'rideforever' and stop the copying and pasting of excerpts from Buddha books,  I'll perhaps take on board and quietly contemplate anything you want to express.  Excerpts that are placed accordingly to emphasize a valid point are crucial and welcome of course but I ask you please not to insult my intelligence.

Thank you.
