How can we heal society? BeiYin
 
Question: How can we heal society?
Comment:There is no doubt about the fact that society is sick. Wanting to heal all kind of disease is desirable, the same as to heal an individual's sickness. But looking at this society how diseases are treated and what is the attitude and understanding about disease, the question shows up: Who wants to heal society with the same attitude as when healing personal disease? This is simply not possible and shows the naivety and innocence of the person asking such question. 
..
First we need to know what the real reason is why society is sick; it is not enough to treat the symptoms like it is done from the established health system. It would
be necessary to threat the root cause. What is the root cause? Here the first dilemma is showing up: Only a person who has healed oneself from the common
disease, being part of this society, is capable to look behind the big games, realizing that for people in this society it is impossible even to have doubts while being
totally identified with the basic established concepts. Having doubts about this would mean to question oneself and this for sure is the last thing people want. People who healed themselves know that there is no way to heal society by any kind of manipulation or control. So then who wants to heal society? Who is we? The sick want to heal the sick? The blind want to guide the blinds?

The only way that society will heal is that the individuals heal themselves. Yes, a very few started with their individual healing process, but when they express themselves, then they are ignored or seen as insane. Society is defending itself with the same means as the individual. What is there as an established attitude and habit must be defended and who wants to touch this will be eliminated in one way or the other. Let's confront the facts: Society supports the individuals and the individuals support and form society. The established concepts are integrated part of all individuals and from there people get their sense of life and a frame and security. There is no question and no doubt, things are the best way they can be! The government and the chosen leader are taking care (really?) - they are responsible. Self responsibility is unknown and not wanted.

Humans are that much underdeveloped that they not even can reach the state of evolution from insects, which live much more organized and in harmony. Humans are
fallen out of their natural feeling of existence; they are living a second hand life, being identified with their mind, their emotions and the established content. So they
must produce more and more of it by provoking and reacting. Just to feel alive! Then being involved in all kind of games to make their pseudo identification stronger, using others for this, who are going into the same games... That's society! Oh boy, who wants to heal this?! Well, people are trying and with a good intention to change something, but they are not conscious about the fact that they are going into the game out of their own need, the conclusion comes to the same as I wrote before: Blinds wanting to guide blinds...

OK, so let's start to heal ourselves! And let's forget about wanting to heal society. The percentage of people who have the desperate urge to heal themselves is so low, that it will not make any difference to society, even though one might like to see it this way. It is about one out of 100.000, maybe even ten times less, so not really significant, but also this is not important. Who is ready, can't avoid questioning oneself and society and then the whole card house might fall apart. But then the trap stays a trap when the entire fault is given to the outside and when trying to change something about it, with this avoiding to start with oneself...

Now you will say: Oh how negative is this guy, he should see the beauty and the positive, the progress and the good intentions... Yes, you are right, but as long we don't dare to see the hard and ugly reality, we are just fooling ourselves. Our beautiful self-images that we have created, doesn't allow to realize that we are parasites, zombies and not at all grown up. To such an extent, that we are destroying the basics of our existence: The earth, the water, the air and every thing we come in touch with. 
..
Meanwhile we know all this, even though we try to stick our heads into the sand and continue our consumer life and existence. That there is something wrong is getting more and more obvious and so the question shows up: 'How can we heal society'? Indeed I have been asking this question since thirty years and I have done the best I could, but I am very near to give up. How can one influence a sheep in its herd, that feels protected in the flock and its only interest is to eat and to have an exchange by saying "baa...". But obviously I haven't given up otherwise I wouldn't write here. I'm still looking for a possible and effective way to influence people that they take self responsibility getting out of dependency, - to heal themselves.

PS: It might be a useful first step that you get to know about your human nature and start to understand why you are doing things and why not, why you are suffering, having depressions, why your success doesn't really satisfy you or makes you addicted for more and more, etc. Although this knowledge will not change much and not essentially. So what???
There is something effective you can do. Let's call it 'StressReleaseExercise'. It is easy to do and has instant good results, which can be enjoyed by your 'personality', so it doesn't built up resistance. Doing the exercise regularly, it releases accumulated stress and avoids that new stress builds up. On the long run it will clean up the cause why stress is produced. The exercise works in a soft way and nothing is forced, the outcome is spectacular although nothing spectacular might happen while doing the exercise. And the best: It is not producing any split and it is healing the schizophrenia of the personality. There is no concept connected with this exercise and to do it there is no teacher necessary and no seminar or retreat, there is no dependency created. One can do it right after reading the given advice, which you can find totally for free at: http://falconblanco.com/release
If there is showing up any difficulty when doing the exercise, then you can ask for help writing an email to me or going to the group:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/StressReleaseExercise
Your inbuilt resistance might inhibit you to take advantage of this chance, but there is also an inbuilt growing force which will tell you what feels right and so even you might overhear this voice, but the moment will come that you are ready...
