Utopian or Dystopian fiction, or are imaginative science fiction and fantasy minds painting a prophecy? What if the choices taken today determine Utopia or Dystopia?
Imagine thirty years from today, you find yourself in a poverty-stricken society, devoid of technology and dominated by the rich and powerful? Would you seek a blissful state of humanity? What if, because of your Utopian desires, you are persecuted by the ruling sinister powers, dark and barely human?
Reads like action, adventure, fantasy? From George Orwell’s 1984 to Gulliver’s Travels, for decades, we’ve immersed ourselves for a few hours, into worlds of mystery and tales, where our hearts pound and at the end of it all, we are glad for the comfort of our reality.
Perhaps not anymore.
In many minds today, the possibility of a dystopic future loom heavy. Sadness and sleepless nights preoccupy daily social chatter.
“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
We are addicted to instant gratification, even though our consciousness dictates otherwise?
What is it, within the human psyche that triggers a death wish lifestyle?
Can we deny our hand in the dismal state of our natural environments, epidemic man-made diseases, polluted air, poisoned lands and devastated oceans?
On closer analyses, we may discover that our short term economic benefits correlate with the decline of our gift of human consciousness.
We pontificate on politically correct, socially kosher, and environmentally friendly solutions, in an attempt to appear wise and trendy, but brush aside the obvious answers to rescue humanity and the environment.
Do we need to return to our natural state of being human.
Can live our lives in moderation?
Can we restore our innate human nature without reliance on artificial means?
Can we by looking within, develop our inner powers and evolve our consciousness to higher levels?
Could the above shape our future to be happier, safer and healthier?
Our human race is destined to evolve. The question is, what are we evolving it to be?
Which being would we prefer to be?
Many talk of a dystopic future- desolate lands, feeble minds, and lost hope for those left behind on planet Earth.
Left behind by whom?
Even more talk of Utopia for those who can afford to escape to the Goldilocks planet.
Could you be left behind?
Personally, I sense that as humans, once blessed with visionary powers, we can again restore the wonders of nature. We are quite late in the game. But, better late than never. We need to begin today.
Whether we live in a utopian or dystopian future truly depends on the choices we are making today.
What will we do next? Lots to ponder for sure.
Lots of love and hugs,
