A message from @maimislang posted on @CloutFeed, the DeSo social media blockchain, quoted American writer Joseph Campbell.
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.
These days, all of our heartbeats are governed by the pulse of electricity, strobing through wires buried deep in the concrete and steel that surrounds us. The safety of the walls that envelope us, work to keep us away from, safe from, anything Natural.
Generations ago we hitched ourselves to, became completely dependant upon, the unnatural Nature of Culture. It was sold to humanity as the solution to all of our problems. Offering safety and protection from the dark nights of Nature.
The price we had to pay for this apparent comfort can best be described as the tyranny of rents and taxes, laws and society, structures and institutions that have become worse than any dark nights of Nature.
Realise, if you dare, we are all hostage to our fears of the dark.
They keeps us here.
They keeps us working.
And in return Culture keeps the lights on.
