Day 68 Inspirational Messages Do They Help?

I was watching the Documentary “Blind Spot” you can watch for free at

Around 52:00 minutes into the movie they talk about why we allow abuse to happen around us and to ourselfs to go on. We are basically bombarded by Commercials that support the self interest of Profit for the Corporations. We are also afraid that if we do not stick with the status quo of things that we will be outcasted from our peers and family. We are raised to be consumers of life instead to become one with life. We do not see the things around us, how our actions affect each other and the planet, we just look at what we can get. We have children working in 3rd world countries 18hrs a day to make crap for us to buy! Not to mention the stuff they make uses recourses that we are taking from the planet that is not even necessary for us to life – We just keep feeding the Corporation profit machines as mindless slaves.

Now back to inspirational messages. They are designed to make us “feel better”, but how long does that last? Why would we need inspirational messages if we all supported each other and Life? We would be living as inspirational beings, caring for ourselves and others as Life. Here is a sad example of what we think to be an inspirational message. There was a picture on Facebook showing how people in India have to walk 3 to 4 miles to get water from this huge hole where there were hundreds of people standing around waiting for their turn to get 1 BUCKET of water for the day!!! Someone wrote a comment that said “This picture show how much we have to be thankful for. There is always someone in a worse situation than the one you are in.”

The sad thing about this comment – is that I use to say that as well when I saw atrocities in the world. But what is really behind that statement - is fear! What it really means is – what if that happened to me and my family!! I posted the comment “It is hard to be thankful that I am not one of those people - when they are suffering. I will be thankful when all humans start to support each other for real. Support the system - then all of us can be thankful.”

In short all Inspirational message do is keep us in the Blind Spot – where we do not want to see others sufferings and will not acknowledge even our own sufferings, And guess what, if we refuse to see what is really going on in the world – it will continue until we start to stand up and say No More. Let us start to support All Life – instead to allow abuse of Life.
