About a year ago, I posted this blog, "Sunspiration #121: Emerging of the Artificially-Induced Consciousness." Now that we are in the COVID 19 era, it is apparent how much more the artificial world, and its consciousness, is on the rise.
Natural law and spiritual law follows the God-given grain of movement, flow, or action that is biologically driven or created the natural way.
The way the humans lived and what the ancients preached through spirituality is much of the natural way of living. Natural law (i.e. what goes down, goes up), ebbs and flow, love, family, gardening, community, farming, nature - these are some examples of things that are natural to our human existence.
Artificial living are things that are man-made or created by man. Think about it. Pharmaceuticals, fast food, pornography, war, division, hedonism, artificial food, internet, social media, reality TV, synthetic fibers, photoshopping - all of these things are artificial constructions created by man, which for the most part does not always benefit mankind.
Unbeknownst to most humans they are in a battle between the artificial and the natural world.
Much of today in this, "spiritual war," is really a battle between the artificial and the natural world. The natural ways of living are being impeded by artificial methods. For example, for many years doctors have prescribed meds to patients with high blood pressure. They were not encouraged to change their diet, or their exercise habits, which vastly affects their blood pressure.
The same has been seen in the weightless industry. Everyone wants to be gluttonous and take a magic pill, but not actually make lifelong changes to their health. The irony is that many ingredients in meds are properties that come from whole and natural foods.
When you look at the "S.A.D." or the "Standard American Diet," one notices how much processed food is a part of everyone's daily living. There is no life or vibrancy in that food. And when you analyze the difference between natural food and artificial and processed foods is that both are created under two different light forms.
The light you seek is the light you reap.
Spiritual law knows what you reap is what you sow. The old adage, "you are what you eat," rings true in many ways. You become a byproduct of the type of light and products you consume. Today, most people get most of their light from the television, and not actually from the light of day.
The television has numbed people's ability to critically think and altered their subconscious mind. They say curiosity kills the cat, and the television has made people curious many self-destructive ways. In addition to changing people's behaviors and the way we interact.
There is truth to God and natural law, and everything else is man-made or created by egos. This is not to discard anything man-made or artificial. But as we notice the rise in psychopathy and narcissism, the many man-made tools have enhanced this shadow side in humans.
Humans are like a computer. The physical body is like the hardware or the actual computer and the mind is like the software. You choose what to download into your conscious and subconscious mind.
If you analyze society as a whole you can notice the difference between behaviors and actions with the rise of the artificial world.
Spiritual people understand that everything, or everyone is connected. And the complex web of a world we live in, spiritual people understand that many artificial things are part of the path of self-destruction. People's behaviors weren't like this twenty years ago when technology was just used for email and some research.
We can't escape the artificial world. Some blessings like medical advancements have greatly benefited mankind, but most of what has been created in the social media realm has affected our behaviors on a scale that most people don't realize.
