Do we really live in an elaborate mental asylum?
“If he can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange—meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with colour and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil.” ~Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange
When they lock you up in a mental institution three things happen: your physical freedom is taken away, your health freedom is taken away, and you’re stuck with crazy people.
Trying to understand today’s society is an exercise in madness, it just doesn’t make sense, unless you buck the indoctrination into high-minded concepts like democracy, freedom, justice and liberty. These things should mean something extraordinary and noble, but the concepts have been commandeered for use as propaganda. They’ve become diluted by corruption and are now devoid of their true meaning. They now serve more to limit our ability to see things for what they really are, than to provide us with a playing field on which to create and prosper freely in life.
In truth, though, the world in which we have today is profoundly sick. Dr. Sebi, a natural health physician and plant-based diet advocate was heavily persecuted by the medical establishment for criticizing and providing alternatives to the medicine for profit paradigm.
Dr. Sebi understood that many of the institutionalized ways of being in our culture amount to insanity.
“A society that keeps cures a secret so they can continue to sell medication for huge profits is not a real society but a huge mental asylum.” – Dr Sebi
And he’s right, isn’t he? Why would a sane person withhold a cure from another human being?
But our culture does this with all things beneficial and good. Especially in the medical field. For example, we know a plant-based diet can reverse diabetes in as little as thirty days, but anti-diabetic medicines have become a $72 billion a year and rising niche market.
It’s insanity, but everyone else is going along with it, and so we have to acknowledge that we’re stuck here on this beautiful blue rock in space with a bunch of crazy people.
The Oxford dictionary defines insane for us:
in a state of mind that prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill.
“certifying patients as clinically insane”
(of an action or quality) characterized or caused by madness.
“charging headlong in an insane frenzy”
in a state of extreme annoyance or distraction.
“a fly whose buzzing had been driving me insane”
(of an action or policy) extremely foolish; irrational or illogical.
“she had an insane desire to giggle”
One of the great sages of our time, Jiddu Krishnamurti, also knew just how crazy this place is. But he warned us not to make it feel like home, not to get too cozy with it, not to get too adjusted and domesticated by it all.
“It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurti
Nearly all of the serious problems we have in the world have tangible, practical solutions, yet so many of these solutions are repressed or rolled out ridiculously slowly under manipulation by entrenched industries. Clean energy technologies, permaculture, biodegradable materials, psychedelics, natural cures… you name it.
And if you ignore this madness, you’re engaging in cognitive dissonance. Which is a sort of layman’s cure for the psychic discord we naturally get for not stepping up and taking control of our own lives. For allowing others with money on the line to tell us what’s best for us.
But fret not, this information is meant to empower you.
So often, as human beings do, we need to be startled before we spring into acton to save ourselves. It’s in our nature. And this information is part of that wake up call. The message is simple. You have extraordinary control over your health and wellness, if only you will take control and stop deferring to a system that is prioritized around sales and stock gains.
Otherwise you’re just another crazy person in an insane world.
