i see peoples talking about the change, and to be the change they want to be, and then what is this change really about ? excluding ppl because you don't want to hear what they say ? because they are not in tune with your own view of spirituality ? how is it any better than the current world we live in ? what would it look like if people like the one who lead this place 'home for the change' who come to any sort of power ? exluding ppl who say things that disturb them for personal reason linked to their 'spirituality' ? how is it any different from governement lumping anyone they want to get rid as terrorist to dupe the mass ? how is it any different from the corrupted politician tactics that we are all used to in this world ?

i see people talking about exclusion, about being segretted and excluded for being 'weirdos' for having 'anger issue', and that the world is too littly enligthened to handle the truth, but isn't this just perpetuating exactly the same thing, excluding ppl because they have different view, because they challenge your well established view or your ego ?
i see people speaking about uncondtional love, but as everyone with a bit of sense know, there is hic with this, if you want to really 'be this change', because you can't expect that everyone will be the same, it is like trying to reach to infinity, and in the bottom what is happening ? ppl excluing other, calling them name and displaying them with ugly pictures of trolls because they say things that you can't handle ? and even forbidding ppl to speak with them because you deemed them as 'troll' and then just banning ppl just because they speak to them ? how are you supposed to be taken for anything more than mere empty talkers with this attitude ? how is it supposed to be anykind of change toward less exclusion and more tolerance
i remember a series i watced as a kid, that was a sort of karate kid movie, embeding a young boy gifted in martial art, and there was waves of aggression in the streets, and so he decided to teach ppl self defense to make them ready to face the threats, but his master totally yelled at him for this, saying those old people to whom he was teaching karate could never reach his level, and by trying to teach them self defense, it would just be even more dangerous, because it would give them a false sense of security, and they will try to face the danger of thugs thinking they are prepared when they are not, and during the episode, it just lead them to try to face thugs and being hurt even more, than if they would just run away or call the police, because they are just falsy prepared
this episode totally struck my mind, and i always remembed this, never teach something to people if you don't think it will really make them safe when faced with real world issue, how are you supposed to even remotly credible as teacher of uncondtional love and be the change if you are not even able to practice it on a simple forum, regarding how you deal with peoples who just don't agree with you ?
how is it attitude displaying anykind of patience or forebearance that you are so quick to babble about all day long as being the model of the change you want to see ? is it really the model that you take for this change that you pretend to be ? or is it the plain same old silly game of i'm more spiritual than you, and silencing any one who challenge your pretended attitude ?
