Are People Really Growing Up and Maturing?
No wonder people are so attached to having fun, enjoyment, amusement, gratification and pleasure, that is how we train our children. This condition pervades into our developmental phases. Some people don’t want to grow up, and stay children. They remain stunted and stagnant in intellectual, emotional, psychological and spiritual maturity. They take on the self-governance to some degree and have to provide for their own survival, but they want to remain children and focus on pleasure and having fun in life. And in between their survival responsibilities and having fun, they get immersed in the pervasive distractions all around us. What also mirrors this is the big daddy, mommy, nanny state care that allows people to remain children as well. Give away your personal responsibility to the government, have someone else re-present you in life, and go have fun kid! Round and round we go, in a hamster wheel, having fun, enjoying all of the distractions, entertainment and pleasure that we can possibly derive from everything at our availability. And we wonder why things are not going the way we want, why “change” is not working…
“Immorality? Who cares! Me me me! I want, desire, wish and expect X, Y, Z, so gimme gimme gimme! As long as I’m pleased, gratified, satiated, amused, then I have achieved my pursuit of [false] ‘happiness'”
What is your main, chief, principle drive? Mine is the discovery of Truth. The more you understand the degenerate false way we are currently living, the more you turn away from these useless desires that trap you in a self-delusional bubble of pleasure. The world is filled with children pretending to be adults, pretending we have been raised, pretending we are actually educated in things that matter most.
