Trauma, denial, distortion of reality and projection of ones flaws on others and outside world.

We live in a world full of all sorts of #abusive behavior some directed toward others and by lashing out at the outside world(society). Some people indulge in reckless behavior; others in bad eating habits or harmful #drug #addictions. Collectively groups of people will get #angry and irrational and often countries will be propelled by this #anger to lash out at other country militarily without first coolly evaluating how to rationally work out their differences. In a world like this trauma will occur an awful lot with the psychological problems that come with it. The cycle of #abuse will continue as the #trauma even when healed physically will often leave #psychological scars and the #denial that comes with not wanting to face the deep #emotions that come with them. This denial and the distortion of reality that comes with it leads to a continuation of abusive behavior in this world. We all are abusive to some degree,since no one is perfect! But, we have a very high level of abusive behavior on this spiritually backward planet that needs to be addressed in order for us to develop the spiritual maturity to deal with the intense problems that living in a very technological advance world presents to us!

    Our spiritual programming determines how well we are able to face reality at its most challenging! If we have spiritual beliefs that tune of out of or devalue part of the reality we exist in, we will weaken our ability to tune into and cope with this reality. Seeing reality from all sides and angles is not easy to do! People often like to see only the part of reality that they are comfortable with based on where they are at psychologically and the impact of past trauma on them. One can not heal and grow further spiritually if one does not face ones flaws and the spiritual theories one has that tend to be supportive of the view of reality ones currently accepts. When ever one spiritually distorts reality one will suffer self abuse and also will be abusive of others. One can feel really justified in being abusive as a result of the denial that becomes part of ones psychology and spiritual state of being.
     One can not advance further spiritually if one is not willing to see ones spiritual/psychological problems and the #spiritual theories that underpin them. If one is locked into some spiritual beliefs as a result of them being supportive of the state of denial that comes with not facing and healing the spiritual/emotional impact of past trauma, it can be quite difficult to advance to a healthier level spiritually! When someone tries to reach these people with the strong spiritual energy and spiritual theories required to help them to heal they will often lash out at that person no matter how rational their presentation is. Irrationality and the distortion of reality is often part of those who have suffered abuse or trauma and not healed psychologically from it. Arrogance and an inability to face ones spiritual shortcomings is what prevents people from being receptive to the type of spiritual help they need. One can not help someone spiritually until they feel that they could benefit from such help. Often it takes a really challenging situation in their life and the hard lessons that come with it to get people to really see their shortcomings and want to spiritually #heal and improve their understanding of reality in a way that will prevent future hard lessons of the same type from happening again!
     The truth is most often in the complicated middle and requires one is able to see things from many angles and sides. One can through really challenging spiritual #meditation type training gain a stronger spiritual grip on reality and enable one to better handle the pain/struggle that often comes with getting more of a grip on reality and the truth that comes with this. #Pain is part of life and must be faced in order to gain more spiritual maturity and connection with reality. Once one has obtained an ability to handle a heavier dose of reality, then one will develop the #intuition required to sense which people are reliable/serious sources and thus become better at determining what sources are unreliable or not solid enough or have a feel to them that do not gibe with your sense of how #reality actually works.

Recent events show that the people in the USA really need to work hard to get their act together spiritually now!

Our recent election showed how decadent the USA has become. Both parties put forth candidates that represented this decadence. People have been left behind in our society and this discontent hit the candidate that represented the political party currently in power. Of course quite a few of the people who feel they have been being ignored do not understand how well they have it compared to people living in other places in the world that are completing with them for jobs. Hard lessons are ahead for this country.

People who are unable to evaluate people as individuals and just place them into large groups/categories in order to demonize them need to work hard at developing more spiritual sensitivity. I will always evaluate people as individuals and not based on how they vote. I will not automatically condemn huge groups of people and ignore that a lot of them had good reasons for why they voted. Quickly condemning others who have a different perspective based on circumstances is often supported by a media that often spins the news to fit their own mindset and the mindset of the demographic they tend to focus on reaching. Why do I tend to have this approach? Because, I am a very unique individual who tends to be ignored by so many who are unable to tune into individual differences well enough and evaluate individuals in a deep and meaningful way. It is so easy to just make blanket determinations about people based on limited information rather than take the effort required to really deeply understand the degree of positive energy they really have and the degree they are really working at contributing to making this world/country a better place spiritually to live in.

Being arrogant and overly self-righteous is a strong characteristic throughout out country(USA) and is very strongly reflected in our policies within our country and especially in the world as a whole. We have wasted a lot of money and caused a lot of havoc in the world with both political parties to blame. We will pay the price for our wasteful ways related to how we use our money which is an extremely valuable resource which needs to be utilized to do the most good in this world. Individuals do well to try to utilized their financial resources in a way to do the most good, and so do countries.
Decadence is way too prevalent in this country and the qualities of self-discipline and responsibility are not developed enough or respected enough so as to help us do what it takes to effectively deal with all the extremely serious problems that exist here. I feel our country has been headed down hill for quite some time and that we need to start really examining ourselves on the spiritual level here and stop being so quick to condemn people who do not represent a demographic that we do not easily identify with. It is so easy to be overly self-righteous and not have to look within oneself to see how one can improve oneself spiritually, in a way that could enable one to better relate and cooperate with others that differ from us, rather than be so quick to lash out at them and demonize them without making an attempt to understand where they are coming from and what they really have to offer that is of value.
