We can become spiritually numb: numb to our true reality.
We can become numb to others’ suffering.
We can become numb to being deceived.
Ignorance is comfortable … we wish.
It’s as if we have a ‘dead switch’
that turns off further investigation of the big picture.
We prefer comforts to pure consciousness.
We are detached from understanding the causes of others’ suffering.
The ‘planet for profit’ mindset depletes world resources on an industrial level,
and then blames the people.
* “Comfortably Numb”: song by Pink Floyd
