And this includes virtually all dictators that had,have ever lived and will come. True freedom frees a person to do what he/she really desires and many people unfortunately are not ready to be truly free. Dictators’ behaviors are perhaps the best examples as to what freedom could make a person into since dictators are truly free. I sincerely believe that many if not even most people are not committing crimes for the simple reason they are afraid of the legal repercussions. To put it simply many people if not most are not enlightened. I’m not even talking about the uneducated poor people but what I’m saying is that even members of the educated middle class would commit crimes under no feasible and possible repercussions.
People like Lee Kuan Yew believe that mankind is nothing but animals. I wholeheartedly disagree with this as I think we have evolved much more than just a beast. We have the capacity to reflect [on our deeds and motives], an ability which beasts are lacking. This implies we understand the concept of morality, on right or wrong. I know people like Lee Kuan Yew would argue that there’s no right or wrong but if there were no right or wrong then why would we have a judicial system? They might argue social control but that would imply a societal understanding of right or wrong, of morality. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on perspective) mankind is also the only species which could freely choose on what kind of being it so desires to become. It has the freedom to choose whether it wants to be more like the beasts or choose a more noble way to becoming more humane (decent) being. In the scenario that more people are choosing to become more beastly, civilizations will descend into anarchy. Not straight away of course but begins with a slow descend from ‘elite anarchism’ to ‘controlled chaos’ to downright chaos and anarchy in which civilization crumbles. So you see moral fiber is what hold society together as a nation and as member of responsible world citizen and universal brotherhood of mankind. Lee Kuan Yew would argue that it is fear that holds society together but fear isn’t sustainable. Every man aspires to live free of fear. Fear is incapacitating so that goes against the aspiration of every man who wishes to prosper and every man wishes to prosper, to grow intellectually, culturally, materially, spiritually and psychologically. So fear either will wane with the rise of insurrection or must be maintained at increasingly high cost and debilitation to society until the whole system of fear collapses on itself. Rule by fear is simply against mankind’s nature and anything that goes against nature will not be sustainable. This is the reason that every dictatorship will very much likely not last beyond a century or mere 2 generations. Democracy on other hand distributes power so that one man’s decadence could be checked by others. It could still fail under the condition that most people in the system are corrupted or become decadent but that would take a much longer time and or under special societal and social circumstances/conditions(such as new cultural development) in order to develop to ripeness.
So the next time someone tell you you’re just another kind of animal, please state your objection. Take a look around. Our civilizations wouldn’t be possible if we were just another animals. And if they argued that our civilizations were the result of our intelligence development you should argue that intelligence without moral fiber is a rotten fruit not much useful to developing civilization itself since moral fiber is what keeping society as one unity to develop civilization under the pretext that everyone who contributes bring benefits that strengthen/benefit the whole society and he/she himself/herself benefits too in return. It works on a win-win basis. Once a dictator takes over the whole value system goes upside down as the primary interest is to keep him/her in power for as long as possible. Of course every attempt will be made to distort the truth but you can only hide under lies for so long. The cat will be out of the bag sooner than later as decadent people can’t help themselves in the end sooner than later. They will become excessive and irrational out of their decadent character. They are like walking time bomb. You never know when they will explode or what will trigger it. As my 2002 ordeal in Singapore shows, doing nothing could put one’s life in danger and under torture and prolonged persecution. I can only suspect because I simply had a crush on this girl which I never came to know her name. I never even talked to her at all. Never got the chance and I was way too shy. But it was enough reason to send me an evil spirit in the opening and psychologically torturing me, persecuting me and labeling me schizophrenic(which I defy by not taking medication at all from beginning and proceeded to finish a bachelor degree just fine and now have a normal job and able to relate to other people just fine). It is an ultimate form of abuse of power that I’ve ever seen. And their reaction? Hiding their hands after throwing rocks and keeping mum about its revelation. People who cannot govern themselves should not be put in charge to govern anyone else or even anything else!
Abraham Lincoln once said the following wise words: Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.
And he couldn’t be more right but I’m afraid many people would turn out just like Lee Kuan Yew, a self worshiping narcissistic megalomaniac. Many people if not most are not ready to be truly free simply due to the reason many people if not most are unenlightened. These people could even turn a noble religious teaching to vindicate their evil deeds. If your prayers are not making you a better person it’s all in vain and for vanity. The goal of any religious teaching (whatever the religion) is to make one to grow spiritually and become enlightened, that is to realize the nature of interconnectedness between all living things or consciousness (seen and unseen, thus to appreciate compassion and unconditional love). To see through this physical ‘illusion’ and glimpse at the objective reality where time is simultaneous (ceases to exist in any direction i.e, you realize everything is happening in every moment of now in objective reality that includes all of the past, the present and all of the future. That all moments are most probably ever present/happening. That every single moment in time is like a membrane of real existence ever happening in simultaneous ‘time’ such that every moment is like its own universe but it’s not but each is as real as our own) even if the realization is just for some moments (it’s called physical illusion because to more developed consciousness space and time cease to exist or begin to cease to exist). To grow in one’s consciousness. With such realization the emphasis would shift from amassing material possessions to nurturing relationships. And only then one can serve others genuinely. In fact only then one would SEEK to be of service to others. I’m not saying 24/7 of being a servant to others but taking genuine satisfaction to be of ANY service to others, with no regard to their social standing.
Ultimately it’s in your hand whether you would like to be a chest pounding gorilla version of human being or the next possible evolution in mankind, a homo novus, a new man with expanded consciousness which is made possible not from nature’s genetic coding but from how you use your consciousness i.e, the kind of person you’re being or just: your being. It takes no effort in fact it would be impossible with effort but it takes the whole of you. Neither it is about becoming for it is simply about being. A gorilla doesn’t use much of its consciousness does it. Don’t make excuses, it is in your hand. We all always have a choice. Always. Furthermore there are certainly other ways to expanding one’s consciousness that don’t involve adherence to morality or principle of being but those are probably not very sustainable or natural and most if not all are probably way less potent/universal/encompassing albeit quicker and easier. Intelligence communities should know of these techniques and their limitations(if they can compare them) including Singapore’s. Sadly they are used for spying and in my case in 2002 for terrorizing innocent people like me. People with more consciousness may be able to detect these spies if the spy was inexperienced. Sort of like being inside a person who’s inside you for spying you (but that didn’t help me feeling violated in my privacy and if in the now rarer occurrence I myself get into someone’s psyche or even whole nation, usually it’s not because I purposely intended to spy on him/her/it but it’s merely because I’m just being and whatever he or she is feeling or thinking may have involved me or that I believe Higher Intelligence thinks I should know for my own personal growth. By being it means I connect to people whose presence, surrounding or near or thousands of miles away, present or past or future, I may have not aware of on the conscious level so the connection comes first before the realization that they are there. In a way I connect not because I try to but because I simply am. It’s not about sensitivity either. Would a blind person call those who could see sensitive? No those who could see would simply call the blind blind. The rationale doesn’t change when most people are blind). I know I may not make much sense to many people but I do not care I write what I write. To avoid misunderstanding I’m not claiming to have any abilities though as I consider those not something that you could pull off at will, it’s more complicated than using your limbs it’s more like a heart/mental discipline, there is no attempt there is not even try there is not even do but just merely being. It’s up to you readers to make sense of it if you want to. It’s up to you how you want to accept it I’m merely trying to open your mind to hidden reality and practice. If you get to higher level of consciousness you just perceive more ‘reality’ since you become aware of more (such as the realization that everything is basically energy. Even thoughts and emotions are too and the energy they ‘generate’ even is able to form shapes that you can ‘see’ and feel without needing your physical eyes though as to what usefulness those shapes are for is still unclear. I’d think they are just expressions such as when one draws a picture on a paper, people too with their mind only to form shapes made from energy with their thoughts and sentiments. Others may point to energy saturation or energy shift caused by feeling in certain ways such as change in psychological stance. Or you may find that empty space is not empty at all. Certain non-human energy may cause ripple in space as if empty space were filled of water or were a swimming pool hence empty space not being empty at all and I don’t mean it was the wind that caused ripples but it was ripples of energy. Other non-human energy may pop out of nowhere and form certain shapes such as a sphere with electrical-like characteristics(yes you can feel these energies exactly as if they were part of you but these are not visible to the physical eyes and the only way to see them is to feel and ‘see’ them through the ‘eye of your mind’). In a way you changed the ‘definition’ of reality. It was not an instant process and I’m definitely not crazy but me being persecuted for so long helped me a lot to get where I am now in terms of my consciousness. Additionally I strongly believe having faith in God and honoring God are a big part of my consciousness growth. I cannot deny God which has become a personal truth to me. It began when I was allowed to see God when I was a 7th grader. The face was shining the brightest white light I have ever seen to this day so overwhelming NOTHING could be glimpsed but the light that enveloped the whole figure (Glory be to God and God alone!). It wasn’t in sleep nor was I dying. I saw what I saw because I asked that night to be allowed to see Christ, the real Christ not the one depicted by people. I was expecting a bearded man, a child that I was, but I saw entirely something else. Anyway I merely made the right decisions. So begin your first step, CHOOSE because if you don’t someone else will choose it for you.
*There are many false information on the internet on higher consciousness. There are however some quite informative ones. But people wouldn’t be able to tell which ones are false and which are true since most people do not have a reference or past experience to fall back to. Science has begun to unravel the mystery of higher consciousness too but there’s a lot of opposition coming from fellow scientists who are opposed to change and progress. It has always been like that. When the concept of atom was first coined the scientific community rejected and ridiculed it. Higher consciousness is a state of being. It’s not an attempt it’s you being, that is being in higher state of being than the ordinary people. A lot of people ridicule this as pseudoscience but the reason why that attack would work is simply because most people never experience higher consciousness at all. Some even insulted objective consciousness by saying it was the result of taking hallucinogenic drugs or suffering from brain damage. These people admitted that there’s what’s called objective reality but it could only be accessed if you took hallucinogenic drugs or suffered from brain damage. LOL The stupidity of some people! Mankind’s Wisdom has its limit but our stupidity has none!
General explanation on objective consciousness is listed on the below provided two links (I prefer to call it objective consciousness than higher consciousness but someone else long before I used the term objective consciousness already called it objective consciousness :). So the concept isn’t what people call new age at all. It’s the goal of every respected religion and prayers to God.
Some [possible] explanation from scientific perspective (possible because I don’t come from Scientific background)
There’s a lot of trash on the internet but knowing the difference will save you a lot of time and prevent you being fooled.
Those links I provided above could help you as I consider them to be quite reliable (true). Just don’t click on other links even if it’s on the same site. Good accurate articles on objective consciousness are difficult to get. Most of them are trash even if it came from some ‘famous’ people on the matter. Besides choosing on what kind of person you want to become the first step into experiencing more objective reality is to cultivate a sense of objectivity. I won’t try to explain more. If you don’t get it you just don’t get it. Objectivity goes way beyond being rational and in balance. The template of being objective isn’t your fellow man but that of divine, the Creator itself. I think I’ve written more than enough. Hope you’re on your way to glimpse the objective reality even, even for just some moments. Oh don’t do drugs, that will get you NOWHERE in terms of objective consciousness! Let us shed our bestiality and join our true humanity calling. We are much much more than a beast. The world is in a mess because our leaders are becoming the problem themselves. Let’s not add to this mess and if possible let’s revert it. Let’s bring balance and contrary to the idea of balance that’s held by Singapore rulers which to them means an act of compromising and submission to them, the genuine balance means doing good work and rooting out evil (not the people but evil acts committed by those who believe in the value of being selfish and evil). let us correct what is wrong starting from our own environment, no matter how small. Having a glimpse of objective reality would give you the courage to do the right thing and the enlightenment that people are not all that different inside. The world cannot forever be run based on mistrust and prejudice and evil acts will just add to that. Evil is simply stupidity caused by ignorance. Let us not be governed by stupidity.
