No New-Age Guilt Here

To me, we are the creators of our own reality. We can create it any way we want, though we'll always be imperfect and incomplete in our ability to do. That's just the nature of life on Planet Earth.

A lot of people when you present this idea start to throw around objections. "Well, but how about war and poverty and rape and disease?" Well, yes, those too. "So you're saying it's my own fault that I'm sick?".

This is the so-called "new-age guilt".

The answer: No.

The problem is with the word "fault".

See, if you realize that everything is exactly as it should be, then that includes the disease, it includes all of these things that we label wrong.

When you instead love everything exactly as it is right now, then there's nothing to blame anyone over, it's no-one's fault, because nothing is wrong.

Allowing yourself to love everything exactly as it is just feels plain good. You can feel all the judgment, all the tension, all the suffering disappear from your being. Your heart opens and softens. All the resources you used to waste making reality wrong is freed up. You feel ten pounds lighter. Instead of feeling like you constantly need something, or need to achieve something, you feel like you have so much to give.

When you love everything, there can be no "new-age guilt".

Calvin... this is exactly what people refer to when they discuss "White Privilege". You claim their is "no fault"? How could you have the audacity to make such a claim? "When you instead love everything exactly as it is right now, then there's nothing to blame anyone over, it's no-one's fault, because nothing is wrong." The British Empire murdered over 140 million people during it's reign... and forever altered the culture within the colonial territories. The USA has been meddling with other countries for over a century... from The Banana Wars to The War On Drugs to The Gulf War... overthrowing governments for USA interests... severely messing up countries. Currently the USA is simply murdering unarmed people of color on a weekly basis... "Allowing yourself to love everything exactly as it is just feels plain good. You can feel all the judgment, all the tension, all the suffering disappear from your being. Your heart opens and softens. All the resources you used to waste making reality wrong is freed up. You feel ten pounds lighter. Instead of feeling like you constantly need something, or need to achieve something, you feel like you have so much to give. When you love everything, there can be no "new-age guilt"." Seriously??? I'd like you to tell that to someone who lost their family because of a USA backed war... or a family who recently lost their child due to a racist police officer. This is Western world thinking... entitlement at it's most perverted extreme... to think in such a way. The West rapes, robs and murders the world... and then you tell people that everything is fine & it all should be this way... because the White Western world is happy & content... so why can't you be in your pile of rubble that we just created? It's sickening to read your post.
