I still think about these things now -- and blog about them quite a bit -- but none of it feels as heavy and overwhelming as it had in the past.
The 2020 global totalitarian coup has had a great deal to do with it. Once I recognized the coup for what it truly is, I came to the startling realization that things that had burdened me before the coup -- things like culture and social life -- are no longer symbolic of basic spiritual realities. Why? For the simple reason that the vast majority of the "stuff" in culture and social life has been disconnected from spiritual reality.
The objects within culture and society have ceased to be anchored in anything personal and subjective; hence, they have no relationship to truth or reality because truth and reality exist only in the personal and subjective.
Society and culture have fused into a "given" world that has been severed from the "created" world.
The "objects" within culture and society could never realize the primary reality of spirit, but they were able to symbolize them to a greater or lesser degree if the people within culture and society were aligned with spiritual realities. The "objects" could not produce reality, but they could serve as signs of reality.
The "objects" within today's culture and society are engineered to deny the primary reality of the spirit. Rather than symbolize the reality of the spirit, today's culture and society symbolize nothing but opposition to God and Creation.
The "objects" within the post-2020 world cannot produce reality, nor can they serve as signs of reality. The "objects" in today's culture and society are just objects, symbolizing nothing -- or, more precisely, symbolizing non-being.
Once I realized that post-2020 culture and society had ceased being symbolic in the "true, beautiful, and good" sense" of the word, they ceased feeling heavy and overwhelming. In fact, they ceased feeling like anything much at all.
