Prayer for Paranoid People

Postby Jikan » Fri Nov 15, 2013 5:44 pm

The contemporary world has a way of making people feel very insecure and unsafe--well beyond the acknowledged risks of going about one's life in an uncertain world, many individuals have become convinced that exactly those things that are intended to keep them safe and healthy are instead malevolent agents. For instance, flouridated water or the vaccination of children are transformed from prudent public health measures to menacing means by which evil is worked. And the interwebz, with its capacity for disseminating compelling nonsense at hyperspeed, only reinscribes this anxiety into full-on paranoia.

So:

May those who are wrapped up in fear and anxiety be relieved of their fear and anxiety.
May time that would be spent ginning up pointless conspiracy theories instead become time for reflection on the Dharma.
May purposeless speculation fall away, and real insight into the reality of things emerge.
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering--hatred, ignorance, craving...

May I free my mind from negativity and self-fulfilling prophecies of doom.
May I open my Buddha wisdom even a little bit to show others how to do the same.

Individuals and groups who educate themselves about the dangers of fluoridated water, big pharma, GMO's/synthetic-insecticides, unnecessary vaccines, etc. are the ones who are taking health measures and who aren't drinking the corpocratic kool-aid.

The paranoid people are the ones who watch corporate mainstream news and as a result are afraid of "terrorists", and who go get vaccinated for everything under the sun, and who think they'll be "served and protected" if they allow a overly-militarized nanny/police/'big brother' state to run amok, etc.

Sorry but the largely corporatocracy-controlled "scientific"-community and education system is not the answer.

We need to be people who can think for ourselves, heal ourselves naturally and in harmony with the Eco-system, and eat clean organically grown food; instead of practically worshiping paid-off scientism-ists and politicians.

Yes.

And let's add to that:

May all beings be free from corpocratic tyranny.

May all beings be free from ostracism for questioning things that the 1% financial elitists pay authority-figures to tell them.

May Palestine be free from the iron fist of Zionism!

May Tibet be free from the iron fist of Communism!

May we face ignorance whatever its face, with knowledge
May we join the triple gem conspiracy
May skilful means emerge
May all watch their brothers and sister being

Paranoia is justified if past history warrants it so, this is the Manuṣya realm….But that doesn't mean you have to be frightened, just be aware…Easy to say, but really hard to do, although big Pharma has a pill that will take that fear away real fast, so will fluoride and bromine and I think scientist have come up with a nice vaccine too :cheers:

Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be fair in thy judgement, and guarded in thy speech. Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness, and a home to the stranger. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring.Be a breath of life to the body of humankind, a dew to the soil of the human heart, and a fruit upon the tree of humility.

True.

And I have mentioned some of the other injustices—that you've brought up here—elsewhere in these forums.

The communists are as corpocratic as crony or monopoly capitalists are. This is why Walmart and the communist Chinese government are such good pals.

Lhug pa, Indeed you probably have.... but most fixate on one or two trouble spots as if problems stop right there! "The Maasai, an ethnic group of traditionally pastoral people in northern Tanzania, were attacked and kicked off their homeland by their government.

Their villages were burned, women were raped and children were lost in the ensuing chaos, according to several Tanzanian and Kenyan newspapers and NGOs.

The clash, which took place around the town of Loliondo in Tanzania’s northwest, was not the first time African governments tried to clear their lands of people. The Maasai have been pushed off their lands for decades in an effort to depopulate the Serengeti, making it suitable for rich foreign tourists"

This time, the clearing-out was being done by the Tanzanian government so wealthy and well-to-do Arab sheiks can now cavort around the Maasai’s homeland and shoot to kill any elephant, lion or anything for that matter that moves!
