3 Reasons We Are Failing Our Consciousness

3 Reasons We Are Failing Our Consciousness

Humanity at it's finest

1. We deplete and poison the very resources we need to exist

Whether it be our consistent garbage dumping or purposeful water poisoning or even the extraction of dead bodies to build pipelines, human beings are destroying the world around them. By destroying the world around us, as well as our own health, we have put ourselves into a detrimental situation. Resources are becoming scarce as many third world countries are feeling the by-products of first world enjoyment. Although, first world countries are facing their own series of nature depletion, the affects and outright efforts of cuny-capitalism have reaped surrounding lands and people.

There are over 67 tribes currently living within the Rain Forest, an environment which provides over 30% of the world's oxygen is reaped as 80,000 acres everyday are destroyed and replaced with industrialization. Murdering and displacing indigenous tribes, while torching the natural surrounding environment aka. Mother Nature will have damaging long term affects for our global population.

Our current global population is 7.2 billion and growing. (1) Earth’s total resources are only good for 2 billion people at the current demand. Let’s do the math, and it is obvious that the result is a negative.

2. We kill each other

The Holocaust

Iraq War



The Crusades

John Wayne Gayce

Salem Witch Trials


The Gulf War


Human Trafficking

The French-Indian War


3. We live an illusion as we consistently hunger to escape reality

Societal constructs, binding economies, and vicious institutions, create a world in which society must follow in order to thrive. The world however is nothing short of delusion, as money, ideologies, and habitual errors have become ingrained within the majority of the population. Hyper-normalization causes the essences of independence and freedom to exist solely within our minds as we lock our shackles, only to dispose of it's only key within a designated box.

We bind ourselves to arrears that solely have meaning within our own psychology, as currency's value has merely been constructed within our minds. The value of money, although fundamental to the construct of the false world we've created, very bluntly holds no such power within the roots of reality. However, society appreciates, chases, and follow falsely instilled values of money.

While following the path of glistening debt, society has followed with strict constructs, often meld by their surroundings and media conditioning. Giving little room for self expression, well-being, and simply living, everyday has become a well-rehearsed, indoctrinated routine.

By continuing our ethical decline, we prove by-products of our higher consciousness are easily ignored and poorly regulated, essentially failing our higher consciousness and ability to thrive, experience, and learn.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

The Victim Of The Jaguar Attack Honestly Deserved It

Thankfully, it will NOT be Harambe Pt. 2


This event has been the focus of many media outlets such as NBC, ABC, CBS, The Today Show, etc. A woman had climbed over a barrier in order to get closer to the jaguar's cage to take a SELFIE. The woman has recently came forward and admitted that she was in the wrong, but that the zoo should take more precautions to make the jaguar enclosure safer. (WHAT?)

"I'm not the first and if they don't move the fence, I'm probably not gonna be the last." "I never expected. We're all human, we all make mistakes, and I've learned my lesson." -The idiot who crossed an enclosure barrier.

As far as I can recall, I've seen nothing on the news about someone getting attacked by an animal in such a way; unless they were provoked. However, within the past year, this particular jaguar has attacked before because ANOTHER individual had crossed the barrier and provoked the animal. This woman is in the wrong, as was the previous person, but she wants to place blame on the zoo because of their enclosure design. As far as "I never expected", it's a wild animal in a zoo enclosure. Keeping the obvious in mind, she also had her hand in the paws of the jaguar. What did you expect? That it would act like a domestic cat and lick you while purring? No. Even house-cats can be provoked and claw and bite their owners. Why should a wildcat be any different?

The zoo has came forward and made a statement saying that the jaguar, Sara, will NOT be euthanized because she was provoked, but instead is not out for public display for the time being. The zookeepers do not blame the jaguar for the incident because it was the fault of the visitor. The zoo also stated that they are up to USDA standards and regulations with the enclosure. Since a jaguar is a predator, they are required to have two barriers between the predator and the visitors, which this zoo and other zoos have in place.

These barriers, with any animals, are there for a reason. They're meant to keep the visitors safe from any incidents that could happen. That only gets tossed out the window when someone decides to disregard safety in order to get a picture. The zoom functions in our cameras are there for a reason, everyone.

The fact that zookeepers, officials, news casters, and so forth have to remind people to not cross the barriers of a zoo enclosure is foolish because you would think it would be common sense. This woman, the person before her, and others clearly don't have this not-so-common way of thinking have paid the price for it. Yet, this woman has the audacity to try to place even the tiniest bit of blame on the zoo because it's "not safe enough". Most children, obviously aside from the Harambe incident, know better than this grown woman. Isn't that funny?

So what lesson did we learn from this? Don't be stupid. Use your zoom function.

If you want to disregard safety with a wild animal, go to a safari or travel abroad to an African savanna. Don't cross a barrier at a zoo or you'll be made into a laughing-stock to those with common sense.
