The Situation is Hopeless, and That is the Good News
It’s good news for people who can go their own way – which admittedly, is not too many of us.
It is clear to me that our world has become impossible – it isn’t working, and cannot be fixed. It is also clear that no one can see this – although this must be an exaggeration. I am sure many can see it – but, for various reasons do not say so.
I am one of the fortunate ones, who can say so and get away with it. This is mainly due to my economic situation. I have a small, but secure income (from my Social Security) and live in a secure, remote area (in Costa Rica).
But I am also emotionally secure. How that happened, I don’t really know – it has been a long struggle that is never over. What made my struggle successful, I do not know – since I am surrounded by people whose struggle has not worked.
I suspect (and it is only a hunch of mine) that they want to fail, and to be destroyed. Living independently is not attractive, because it is just that – being by oneself – a situation that seems to horrify them, even though countless people have found it to be the ultimate satisfaction.
If there is a solution, I think it is that – finding one’s inner wealth in a hopeless situation.
The oldest solution in the book, but the book is no longer being read.
