A couple months ago I saw a plane making circles in the sky, now if we can watch the bright lights of the stars and lighted fire works at night this day and age, with curiosity and innocence, i'd say we made quite far.
-------------------- "He who finds peace and joy
And radiance within himself
That man becomes one with God
And vanishes into God's bliss."
Overall I'd say human beings have come quite far, but yeah, I think that right now society may very well be waking up to the fact that the search for meaning, love, and a sense of purpose, while important, can sometimes distract from the beauty and significance of the present moment.
If we could somehow remind ourselves of how things appeared to us as children, new and colorful and interesting .. then perhaps we could come to appreciate how fortunate we are simply to be existing, to be alive..and to accept whatever comes as simply part of it. Psychedelics and meditation help imo.
-------------------- "Think about the universe for a moment.
With peyote, you need to expand.
In the fire, everything exists.
It's the record of the universe.
So, through the imagination, the thoughts,
messages begin to come to you.
The sacred shimmering heart."
Psychs are the best, most natural "reset" button, IMHO. They help you reclaim your natural humanness. A clear memory and perception for the natural, simplistic beauty of life and nature return on every possible level of being. You transcend yourself. This is extremely helpful for personal growth purposes IMHO.
We've made it far, but at what cost? Just look at the blaze we are leaving in our wake. I think that our obsession with the idea of "progress" is causing us to ignore the value of sustainability and a moderate existence. We've already come at a point where we must face the question and ask ourselves for what? Progress for the sake of progress is no longer an option.
