Comfortable

 

It is because you are comfortable that you are not yet outraged by what is going in the world around you.

 

It is because you are semi-comfortable that you have not woken up to what is going on.

 

It is because of your relative comfort that you don’t even know you are a slave.

 

It is because of all of your Pavlovian comforts that you continue to go along with the main stream judaic media BS.

 

It is because you are attached to your precious comforts, that you don’t want to rock the boat.

 

Tis because of this comfort zone that you continue to adopt this cognitive dissonance.

 

It is because of your comfortableness that you don’t really care about other people’s suffering.

 

You have been deceived that being comfortable will give you the security you crave.

 

You have been hoodwinked into thinking that having lots of material comforts around you means success – how wrong you are.

 

Your comfortable lifestyle and relentless pleasure-seeking is rotting your soul, the very essence of who you really are.

 

It is only through our adversities; all of life’s inconvenient knocks; NOT our pleasures and comforts, that allows us to spiritually grow.

 

We don’t need more of things – we need less

    Very true. Unfortunately, with the vast majority of people, as long as they have all of life’s necessities along with life’s niceties, they stop caring about the needs of others. I high-paying job, and beautiful home, and a belly full of food, while laying on a pricey couch, watching your oversized flat screen TV is not likely to lead to spiritual growth. America is a terribly materialistic society. Sadly, money and toys are all that matters now, and it’s only getting worse.

    • Unfortunately you are so right Matthew.

      Yes and don’t forget a nice pond ;-). We probably have all fallen for this materialistic illusion at some point.

      Thank you for contributing.

    Gosh, you are describing almost everyone I know as well as my family! This sounds like almost all Canadians!

    And Digger, I never fell for the materialistic illusion although I do like having enough to eke out a humble low key existence. Heck, I never even owned a diaper bag when my kids were babies!

    Best thing, my kids absorbed that value. Win!

    Noor Al Haqiqa, I have also lived in Canada and experienced the same thing about people ur experiencing. People are extremely indifferent as mentioned in the article , since they are so comfortable, way too comfortable.
    Very important article!

    • Welcome to DFT Mustafa.

      Thank you for your reflective comment.

      Yes, but it’s not just Canada. It’s unfortunately ubiquitous across the westernized world. Me, me, me. Pop into town, any town on a Saturday and just spend 15 mins sitting and watching the bedlam. People watching is so educational. All of us wrapped in our selfish trance. All being deceived by these false materialistic securities. I think the most important word you said in your comment was “indifferent”.

      Thank you for your supportive contribution.

  4. Yes. we are a very materialistic society who don’t care for the suffering of other people in the world. I have talked to many of my fellow Americans about the suffering of the Palestinians and they do not believe me, others say: well, What can we do about it? and when I told them about the economic consequences that we were facing in 2003 before the war with Iraq they did not believe me untill many of them lost their jobs, their homes and had to live on food stamps, then and only then; they started speaking out loud about the government mishandling the US taxpayers money.

    Sometimes, I think the world could go up in flames, aliens landing and zapping neighbors with ray guns in the streets and they still wouldn’t believe me, or maybe even their own eyes until they’ve see it reported on TV.

  6. When a person has suffered, whether it be mental/emotional or physical anguish, it should lead one to feel compassion for others who are suffering and are oppressed in some way. When a person finds himself on a very tight budget, scraping by, it should lead one to empathize with others who are struggling, are poor or homeless. This is why blacks and other minorities have a lot more compassion and understanding for the down-and-out than whites generally do.

    What I see around me is people who were given everything and I’m talking about teenagers and the 20+ age group. They all seem to have the latest expensive electronic gadget and this involves all races. Why would parents buy their teen an expensive blackberry when it usually gets robbed by thugs(which is a frequent,daily crime here in NYC) What a waste of money and how do parents have all this money during a recession/depression? The kids from the projects have the same gadgets as the middle class. I find the 20+ group to be superficial and completely indifferent to current events and wars. They want to have fun and a career and that’s the depth of their lives. They are shallow because they’ve never faced real adversity and adversity can breed character.

    So in this very round-about way, I agree with you Digger. While we all want a certain level of comfort, too much of it can be a very bad thing.

    • Hi Patty,

      Welcome to DFT.

      Was nice to chat with you the other week with Mark, albeit brief.

      Thank you for your intelligent contributions to TUT whenever you have phoned in.

      You make some valid points here. Yes summed up in one word – “spoil”. Also selfish, pleasure-seekers.

      Alternatively I’m seeing a bizarre backlash to this, where the odd character here n there seem to be deliberately going against the grain and helping others just for the hell of it – this is promising. Perhaps there may be this conscious awakening breaking through??

      We have to all learn this life lesson – life is about serving others.

      Thank you Patty for your fine contribution.
