There are details and our response. Easy done and the classic mix-up over causation and correlation. Telling much can be a sign of inbuilding redundancy. Misreading hunger and receptivity. Being interested -- if/this? -- relevant, in being open to action. Ready and running. Rightful shock. Doing something, in the way. Making moves, demonstrating, facing the importance of life. The artificial overlay we're living under. Addressed. The ones we allow to hypnotise and not restrain. We/all/do. Stockholm syndrome for the masses.
The ones, that want, we ignore or welcome. Whose religious intent and message; "Be cool, calm and collected". Sing along through the locking-up and shut-downs. The dividing-up over superficial lines or argument, all the while...
Best speak to who meet, in generalities. With a radical overview. Show no desire to unfold unless, or far as, might get asked. Even then, better not so quick to reveal.
Speak out of compassion and a gentle tone, over our epidemic of ignorance. Apologetic about these realities. The con. Our lifetime's great deception. 'Dare not call conspiracy' the titled, first most-famous book about. Still as accurate, sum-up.
The hands of hate lurking behind 'the news'. Simple to define; Lairs portrayed as truth-tellers. All we need to say. Lies...
No one tries arguing. The only phoney answer is evasion or smug sniggers. "Know better". Never do. Dare not ask. Falling in pride is dominant.
Lack faith, if believe persuasion is necessary. Rarely matters. Someone's prepared to receive and change, otherwise, the motivation or heart isn't in it. Whatever of the handful of blinkers. One of them is to say "know all about". My heart sinks upon hearing this. Too used to the outcome. Might do -- somewhat or quite a lot. Never 'that much'. Or follows -- and activism. Proper prepping, any business not-as-usual thing.
(Not an exaggeration, other than someone c/o the internet. Can count on my hand, over years and multitudes otherwise, that up and on).
As soon as someone says "they know", the cool and complacent kicks in. Need to display the calm of a contemplative. Assertion there's peace in 'this valley'. Not a good answer. Or one that takes in less than real consideration of what's coming. Than sane and should do.
Of course, all got a philosophy. Some -- or many -- will shape the allowance and flip into self-contained conclusions.
Urgency and angst, the desire to collaborate and act. This 'knowing' and not happy about, but hopeful if... we/can/do.
-- don't find. Not to say looking.
Knowing something is real-wrong. About the needs of life outside personal struggles. There's two: A sociopolitical awakening -and- a personal revival. Have similar qualities and dynamics. Same kinds of stumbling blocks and open engagement.
Tend to skip right to the action. Respect where the openness sits. Respect them. Find something to commend. Then talk what-do and encourage along. Sow a seed or two and water what's growing. Short on explanation and like a whispered secret, keep brief.
The two least popular subjects, most critical for humanity: What in the world is going on and what about Jesus?
Talking which, note Jesus did first, talk about, after. Said so little and asked for much. "Follow me". No apologetic or lesson. Why? Love from and the miraculous.
All I know is growing in and the gifts of faith are all that count big. All and where the needs are at. The piss-about otherwise, Jesus calls those knowing better and not believing and able, perverse.
How long... will I put up with you? The pained and sarcastic ask. Unbelieving and not mountain moving. The sin of all sins. What a waste. Must grab and eat the word. Fast else and find how to live -- believing on.
