Sometimes Words Aren’t Enough

Can I be honest with you? Lately, I have been feeling a little bit stuck.
Have you ever felt that way?
My writings always seem to center around the general idea that we are all basically good people but some have been led astray one way or another. That is an extreme simplification of course but it fits the bill.
I truly want to enrich and inspire you toward social good. I am always asking myself how I can accomplish this task, and I believe communication is the only option we have. After all, how can I convey to you what it is I am trying to say without the words to do so?

Lately though I am feeling disconnected, even a little distraught simply blogging. I want to do more. I want to help more people in direct and tangible ways.
I know that words can offer comfort, impart knowledge, convey some piece of the puzzle into the hands of someone who needs it… but they can also do so much more. They can motivate, they can miraculously carry energy like a golden thread. This is what I desire; to be the cause for your action. That action should help you in some way to feel better, to think better, to live better. If not than what is the point?

I decided to get out there and join a volunteer organization that is dedicated to service and charity. It was the best thing I have ever done. Through actions we can communicate even more clearly, and with greater impact.
I wanted to let you know that I am finally realizing that we need the real world connections to bring it all to fruition. We can speak openly and at length about the injustices of the world and how we can dispel them but actions truly do speak louder than words.

I have been donating through GoFundMe to a woman named Vincent Tolentino who needs assistance in paying her medical bills. If you feel you can offer some assistance also please do @ http://www.gofundme.com/pn2j6c .
I have also written my first e-book recently titled “God, Addiction, and State Prison” which chronicles the psychological changes that an addict goes through in an effort to broaden our understanding of addiction. Go here to check it out-

These are just a few of the more tangible ways I am learning to accomplish my mission to enrich and inspire toward social good. I hope you are doing well wherever you may be.
…and on a less formal note- For all you readers out there I will be releasing my first fiction e-book titled “Accretion” [Anomalous Series]
You can get the first chapter for free here @ https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Tommy_Parisi_Accretion?id=7eDxCAAAQBAJ

Echo Chamber; Ideas, Feelings and The Mind.

Share Up To 110 % - 10% Affiliate Program

Has the world become an echo chamber? Has the originality that comes from an individual and unique persona suffered the homogenizing effects of popular ideology? Of course. At least to some degree, but I think that degree is due to an integral part in our human nature. You want to belong don’t you? To love and be loved? Human beings desire familiarity over change. We desire social acceptance over social rejection. We conform in many ways because we believe it is to our benefit. Conformity is only bad if we ultimately betray ourselves in doing so. People want to come together, in thought and in action, and that drive deep within us is the very same reason we so often become divided.

DSCN0074

Paradoxically we desire to be part of a group, to belong, yet when we form that group our dualistic reasoning must recognize the outsider as ‘other’ or ‘separate’. Driven to belong we wind up excluding others… but this is only true because our intellectual understanding of ideas mirror our physical reality. We believe we exist as separate from all else. We live within our physical bodies and observe all else. This separation is our foundation as we reason, and therefore we reason all things as either separate or within, right or wrong, good or bad. Oddly though, we may be able to reason endless ways to divide intellectually, but our emotions tell us a different story.

DSCN0099

With the dividing lines drawn more boldly and across every conceivable boundary I cannot help but stare in wonder at the gibberish I hear spoken in politics, in media, and in the streets. Understanding that divisive ideology is spread like cancer to intentionally deceive us from following our hearts is key in unraveling the chaotic atmosphere in todays world. Strongholds of power and influence benefit from pontificating the core ideologies that promote and strengthen their hold. This is simple psychology. The mind wants to reinforce all things that are to ones own benefit. We lay claim to (and identify with) the things that reinforce a reality that supports our way of life . Nothing to difficult there to grasp.

DSCN0152

But why is it so popular for people to reinforce the very same things that cause them to suffer in the first place? Things like selfishness and greed serve only to isolate and confine us when our truest desires are of belongingness and connection. I cannot help but shake my head in disbelief at the sheer irony of it all. The oppressed propagating the same lies used to keep them down-trodden. The poor pledging allegiance to the men and women who’s profits rely on their economic status and the despair that keeps them working long hours for less. The dividing lines of race, sex, and culture should be nothing more than a recognition of the diverse ways we as humans express ourselves. Since we are all driven in the same core ways we are all very much alike and only superficially different. Our minds divide us yet our hearts yearn for unity… why?

DSCN0134

The patterns of thought that exclude others and confine us are easy to identify. They are the lines of reasoning that lead us down a dark path where our fellow human beings are seen as separate, as different and less valuable than ourselves. They create the prejudice, bigotry and hate that robs humanity from attaining the level of love and peace the world desires. These lines of reasoning are riddled with judgements and accusations and a never ending stream of justifying opinions. What they lack are hard facts. Opinionated rhetoric and gibberish. The “News” has become anything but informative. “I think therefore I am” is not the whole of it. We need to feel as well. I accept the truth of my feeling nature; that I love you all and desire to be loved. Does that make me crazy?
