Raise the Bar

The only way to moral and intellectual satisfaction, comes to those willing to take the great risk of thinking for themselves and, at all hazards, to try and share the benefits of that tolerance and open mindedness with others.” Christopher Hitchens

In this week’s podcast I talk about what happens when we awaken to new truths and how we can avoid the temptation to retreat into spiritual practices in order to dissociate from that which we don’t want to know.

When a massive cultural shift occurs, it signals the beginning of a paradigm shift. The heretics, who have been heralding the new age, are smeared and their ideas censored because they challenge the current power structure.

As censorship is being normalised within our society and even welcomed by some, we need to be aware of our own reaction to it. Whose ideas are we not willing to tolerate and why? What new truths are you afraid to accept? Are you willing to take the risk of thinking for yourself?

The bar is being lowered in so many areas and it is becoming a sin to stand out from the crowd. This is the dark side of equality, where uniformity is encouraged and the true meaning of “fairness” is inverted. In his book 1984, George Orwell predicted the inversion of familiar terms – “War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignornance is Strength.” – as a way to control the masses.

It’s time to heed his warning. It’s time to raise the bar.
