What if we are the aliens? What if we are far more advanced than the system lets on because all it's concerned about is money? What if all the things we've learned to need are completely false necessities? What if somewhere deep down in all of us lies the simple, obvious knowledge that we don't actually need money or material possessions? What if the majority of us are in denial? What if the majority of us don't even realize because we're in denial of being in denial? What if somewhere deep down in all of us lies the simple, obvious knowledge that we need to return to nature, to live freely and simply off the land? What if we realize that war and disease are completely reversible and, better yet, avoidable? What if we, as a whole, realize the devastating implications of technology and environmentally-damaging practices continuing to accelerate at the current rate? What if we finally realize that if we don't change our ways, Earth as we know it will crumble upon itself without mercy? What if we finally realize that the Earth isn't just some inanimate thing that humans can claim to own and inhabit but is in fact a part of us, and we are a part of it? What if we finally see that our one being is crying and in pain, realizing that we need to reverse the damage that has been done? What if we all took a step back and asked, "Why have we made a life originally so simple, so darn complicated?" What if we became collectively conscious and aware, discovering the real happiness exists inside each of us without external stimuli? What if we discovered the real, unconditional, universal, infinite love that we are all capable of emitting, all the time?
open up your ears
and clean out your eyes
if you learn to love
you're in for a surprise
it could be nice to be alive
If we are all aliens, there are no aliens.
We are one and we are love.
We can do this better.
Perhaps the most advanced cultures are the simplest ones.
Maybe they already discovered the highest forms of technology, experienced the damage it had done, & reverted back to simple origins where nature provides all of the technology they need. Or maybe they discovered & experienced these high forms of technology prophetically, in visions, in dreams, & made the conscious decision not to evolve through that path but instead to stay true to their nature.
Their nature is our nature, so why take our nature for granted?
