You have no time to lose. Can you remember this? Not just let it slip from your mind by tomorrow morning, but actually live your life as though it’s true, which it is? Unimaginable nightmares take place in our waking world. Death and destruction, pain and suffering, and people say to stay positive. Look on the bright side. Doing that means ignoring massive parts of our reality, the parts that most desperately need our attention. Lacking awareness of evil is itself evil.
You might think you are a good person. I am here to tell you that you are good enough. You do not do enough to help other people, through the narrowness of your focus, you ignore the people and other living beings who need your help the most. Your friends and family are not the only people you should care about. Now, who am I to tell you that you aren’t doing enough for others? It does not matter who I am. What I say is true.
The world has no use for more scared people. The world needs heroes. You may not know where to start, but if you put in enough effort to find those truly in need of assistance, you will find what you are looking for. There is an attitude many people have, “Everything you should do for yourself.” You can justify ignoring your moral obligation to people who need saving, but no matter what the rhetoric may be, if you waste time and are selfish, the end result will be the continued suffering of human beings just like you. There is no true justification for being insensitive to the needs of others, it will always be evil.
Stop spending all your money on useless shit. Millions and millions of people are starving, donate some money to a charity that will feed them. Whether you believe it or not, when you spend money on things you don’t need, you are guilty of allowing harm to come to others. You are responsible for evil in the world. Do not forget this. What exactly are things that you don’t need? Bottled water, soda, coffee from restaurants that costs 100 times as much as homemade, new designer clothes, makeup, gasoline for places you could walk to, movie or sporting event tickets, expensive cars, lottery tickets, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, flat-screen TVs, cologne or perfume, vacations to far away places, CDs, and gym memberships. There are countless other examples. Every luxury item you buy allows people to die. You decide whether accept or ignore what I’m telling you.
Never have a clear conscience, and never trick yourself into believing that your mission is complete. There is always an evil that you can prevent and there is always more that can be done. In every moment you should be considering what you can do to help others and make the world a better place. Be a hero.
