Getting Serious about the Seeming Inevitability of Collapse

October 30th, 2015

Siloam Springs, AR, USA

I would like to share something that has been on my mind recently and that is that it is time to get serious about what could be the inevitable collapse of multiple aspects of our culture and society in the Western world and perhaps what to expect in the upcoming future.

In any country, culture, or empire throughout history when a certain amount of the population has lost their will to work (through whatever means), some sort of collapse has occurred to “reset” this will to work within the population. One could call it the law of cause and effect or God’s will or whatever, but it is a necessary evil that has occurred many times throughout history. To assume that it will not happen again is a perilous decision especially in this day and age. How have we lost the will to work and even live?

When a certain amount of the population can make astronomic amounts of money through “easy work”, such as trading the markets and even more so with computer high-frequency trading, or “work” such as sports or acting, where they are paid millions of dollars per season or for a movie, or through selling illegitimate or illegal goods for fast profits, or gambling either in legal casinos or online, it has nearly always been just a matter of time before that country or empire has collapsed. With the addition of welfare on the scale that it has become in our country where money is just printed and handed out to anyone that signs up, this is a recipe for collapse and a recipe for a “reset” to occur. 

When everyone sees their neighbors either making “millions” through “easy methods” or living off of the government, this leads those that are working hard to work less and less and this has led us to this point in time. It is “baked into the cake” at this moment. Because there is not a precedence of the United States and Western world’s magnitude of “losing the will to work”, the “collapse” may be on a scale that has never been seen before.

It is not even a punishment but a necessary evil to reset that country or people to make them a better and happier people in the future. This may not be apparent before or during the collapsed years, but it will be for those who survive and make it through the “tough times”. How long will it last? This depends on many factors, but I don’t think decades is a far off guess for some countries.

In my opinion, for whatever it is worth, the morality in the United States and many Western countries is at an all time low. Whether you take into account our offensive military campaigns against other innocent countries, our drug-fueled and alcoholic society, the abundance and allowance of obscene pornography, the homosexuality that has become a norm in our society which has led into transexuality, or any multitude of reasonings, it is apparent to anyone who has any semblance of what “morality” actually is that we have fallen into immoral times. 

What good does homosexuality or transexuality do except appease the personal desires of the person the participates in it? How does it help society in any way or form? I am not saying that it is a “bad” thing in the individual, I’m saying that it is an “immoral” allowance within the culture. I am saying the “glorification” of it is a systemic rot to a society’s moral code.

Some countries and cultures will bounce from the collapse quickly, while others may never fully recover. Those who have experienced collapses within the last few decades have prepared much more then those who have not recently or anytime in their history. A nature or culture’s assumption of “superiority” and “exceptionalism” and “this will never happen to us” will be the main precursor to the severity of the collapse. It has happened many times throughout history so don’t assume it won’t happen again.

“Prepare for the worst, hope for the best” is a very beneficial motto to live by. The only way that anyone has survived throughout history is because their ancestors saw the “writing on the wall” and moved on to a more “progressive” society or culture in search of better opportunities, which usually occurred in dire times. The one’s who stay behind and have no preparations in place will not last just like those who did so in the past did not last.  

Believe me that I hope I am wrong on all of this, but I feel it is my “duty” to warn people if God puts something on my mind. To keep it to myself would be a disservice to all around me, whether friend, family, or unknown. 

It looks more and more like World War 3 is around the corner and the winners will be those who are best prepared, mentally, militarily, and economically. I do not see the U.S. as prepared mentally, nor economically and these two will factor in to the inevitable defeat of the military because where there is no will to fight nor money to pay the troops, a war cannot be fought. The enemies of the United States know that it is only a small push of the domino and the country will collapse in on itself. They don’t want to push that domino, but will if they can avoid a major World War.

We can only judge our own success in life by how internally happy we are in the present moment. One cannot say I was a success in life and yet still be unhappy in the present moment. Happiness can bring wealth and yet so often wealth brings unhappiness. Those who will continue to judge success based on financial wealth will never be happy and will pass on this delusion to their offspring.

God Bless everyone and try to at least be mentally prepared for the worst that can happen.

Blessed.

Reflections On Love

Is love limited or unlimited? Why do we try to limit love to one person if we have enough love within us for multiple people? Is it not jealousy that stops this from occurring? Is it societal or religious rules that stop us from loving multiple people in the world? If it is agreed upon by all parties what is wrong with loving multiple people at one time? Not at the same location per se, but in different parts of the country or world? 

I feel very lucky to have loved many wonderful women in my life, and I don’t think that my love has run out for any of them. Why is this considered a “bad thing”? Why can’t I embrace this and not have it looked down upon? Even if it s not acted upon? Who can judge the time period that it takes to fall in love? Who can judge whether that love still exists even after a short meeting?
Another question is do we have free will or are we only able to do what God allows us to do at any given moment. Can we love who we want or must we love who He chooses for us to love at any given moment? Is it possible to fall back in love with old flames who we wanted to love at one time, but He wouldn’t allow us to love them fully at the time?

What unlocks us? How do we know who He wants us to love? Do we ever have free will or not? Is it limited or unlimited?

How does wish fulfillment play into our own path? Can others wish fulfillment be so strong that it can completely take us off our own desire and path?

Is marriage a necessity? Especially if personal desires are so fleeting? Would children tame someone to stay true? Or would only personal love do this? Is the very difficulty of staying true to a single person what makes doing it or marriage so special? Could God tame a wild beast or would it have to be the beast that tames itself?

Still hard for me to imagine that I will be with the same person my whole life…if it ever happens. I don’t really see the necessity for it. It doesn’t happen in nature so why do we attempt it in society? Can open relationships work? Are there precedents in history?

Is it better to be with someone who has unlimited potential, yet unstable and seemingly unable to reach that full potential or to be with someone with limited potential, who is “stable” and has reached their full potential? Is either “better” or is it just a personal choice for what is best for each of us? Can potential be judged? Or is it just a parallel to ambition? I think it can be… But I wouldn’t say highly potential or ambitious people are “better” then those with limited potential or ambition. It has more to do with attractions and who we like…

I guess if there is ever a question of what God wants from us, to me an answer would be to reproduce. Merely because of the organs that we have been given. I don’t think He would want us not to reproduce is closer to the point. We have it within ourselves to do it and without it, without our ancestors fulfilling this wish, none of us would be here. On the other hand, I don’t think He would be mad if we didn’t reproduce and of course not all of us can…
So be fruitful and multiply, if possible… 🙂
