What is it that prompts us to ask this question? What would it mean to you if a comet was going to come and destroy the earth? Would you live your life differently? Would your life suddenly seem more precious? If our life is so precious then why are we not living it in each moment already?
What does it say that it would take the imminent destruction of the earth to then see life as valuable? Why are we not living this value of life in each and every moment? We’ve accepted the world as ‘the way it is’ as if it can be no other way and this is apparently the ‘best we can do’. This is the lies we’ve been sold by those that benefit from the current system and want it to continue at all costs. And as long as enough people believe this, nothing will change, and this is why nothing has changed.
The only way you can believe something can’t be changed, is if you don’t know how to change it. This requires that you don’t know what causes the problem, and humanity has been deliberately kept ignorant and been deceived as to what is actually causing the problems in the world. It’s always been presented as ‘someone or something else’ is doing it, like the poor are poor because they are lazy, or they’re poor because it’s ‘god’s will’, and everything is according to ‘god’s plan’. We have learned to blame everyone and everything, and yet there is one place we never considered – ourselves.
We fear to change ourselves, so we accept the justifications that it’s someone/something else out there that is causing all the problems. Yet it’s not changing ourselves that keeps us in the same situations, the same problems and never finding solutions to what’s here, because we haven’t realized ourselves as the cause, haven’t realized that we in fact create what is here and are responsible for what manifests in this world. Since we’ve always avoided looking at ourselves, we have no idea who we are and how we’re creating what’s here. We’ve never taken the time and actually got to know ourselves, to understand how we’re responsible for what’s here and what the consequences and outflows are of who and what we live as.
We don’t understand how this world works, because we have separated ourselves from it, within separating ourself from ourself in not knowing/understanding/realizing ourselves and thus how we create this world, through accepting and allowing it to exist as it does and how we participate in it. It’s through this that we think/believe that the world can’t be changed, and thus how some will manifest the desire for it to simply all be ‘washed away’ within some cataclysmic event, such as being destroyed by a comet, since no other possible solution is seen.
Whether a comet is going to come and destroy the earth is actually irrelevant. Disasters are going on all around the world all the time – yet we’re still accepting living within a system in which we’re all enslaved, completely taking life for granted, with many too busy surviving to be able to even appreciate life here in the physical – how can you appreciate life when it’s been made into a torture? We’ve allowed life to be such a misery for so many, that some even desire it all to end, and thousands are committing suicide every year.
One reason we entertain such an idea is that if a comet were to come and destroy the whole earth in 2012, we then wouldn’t have to face the mess that we’ve created here, it would all just be ‘washed away’. But this obviously solves nothing – we’re back to the beginning again, and no better off in understanding and being able create a world without making a mess of it by making such a mess out of ourselves. So to just hope it’s all going to just suddenly ‘disappear’ is useless as it would only make things worse. We’d have to start all over from scratch, and we’d simply manifest the same problems all over again, all the unnecessary suffering and abuse, because we wouldn’t have actually changed who we are in any way, in fact, we would just be perpetuating our habit of procrastination and not facing ourselves as/within what we create.
So rather, we should get busy investigating ourselves, and seeing how it is that we manifest a world where the vast majority of us are not living a satisfying life, busy just surviving day to day, not even able to appreciate life. Because either way, whether a comet does come and destroy the earth or not, we still must change ourself. It’s not here now, and thus it’s not relevant – not relevant to who we are and how we live. It should not matter if a comet were to come and destroy the earth – what does it imply if who we are were to change if that were to happen?
We should be living in such a way that no matter what happens, some freak accident with a comet that wipes everything out, it doesn’t matter, because we’ve lived our lives in such a way that we were satisfied. Which implies living in a world where life is supported, not where it is enslaved, where all live as equals and none are left out and not considered and allowed to suffer needlessly.
So we need to finally get down to the nitty-gritty and see exactly how it is we create this world, and actually get to know ourselves and investigate exactly how we’ve created this world and how it actually exists. We need to effectively understand ourselves and our creation so that we can stand equal to it and no longer be enslaved to a system, hoping, wishing that something might happen that’ll just ‘make it all go away’, as that’s no solution. We are the solution, we can be the solution, by coming to understand ourselves, and this is why it’s suggested to do the Desteni I Process, as that is the fundamental principle of the whole course – is to get to know oneself so that self can stand as the directive principle and assist and support oneself to stand equal to our creations as ourselves and as the world, to finally be able to manifest a world that is best for all, through becoming the living directive principle of what is best for all.
