Consumerism – the religion

The Gnostic gospels contain many unedited and unpoliticised records of the words of Jesus, and other wise women and men of that era.

 

One of the most striking and urgent messages for the present day is that people, specifically their soul, incarnate on Earth for a brief spell and the only obstacle to realising this is paradise is failing to live in the here and now.

Sadly, few people do realise this and are ignoring the global devastation  wrought by the universal (and unconscious) religion of the Western world – consumerism. Particularly frustrating is the move to make electric cars – the production of even one of the smallest cars will contribute an extra 15 tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere.

 

traffic jam, consumerism, Planet A

There are many better alternatives – using renewable energy electricity in electric bikes, buses, trains and taxis.

And to stay where you are rather than treating endless travel as yet another consumer escape mechanism from one’s unsolved and often unconscious issues.

They Paved Paradise, Put Up A Parking Lot

Joni mitchell

 

“There is no Planet B” is the contemporary urgent message – but sadly many people already live on (or rather in) Planet B … and they have several – Netflix, TV, boozecruise,  ‘support groups’ that share the same ‘values’ (IE escape mechanisms).

 

Best Possible Outcome? Hope! Beinglead by example, being the future you value
