“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a Spiritual War… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”
Tyler Durden – FightClub (Movie)
We live in a system that controls us. But that’s not the problem. The problem is WE ARE AFRAID TO CONFRONT AND/OR LEAVE THE SYSTEM that we have become addicted to. In some way, even though we don’t want to be part of the system, we are more afraid of denying it and the change it will bring, because life is somewhat comfy even though it is shit (for many of us).
The way I see it, we have not reached our ‘pressure point’ yet as global community!
We have not got to that point where we think ‘fuck that’ and actually do something about it. Yeah, slowly a few of us here and there are rising up and exposing the truth, but overall we are sleeping in our comfy onesies, sipping on Starbucks frappacinnos while watching reruns of Friends, pretending nothing is going on.
And it is a matter that we are pretending nothing is happening .. because mostly we are awake!
Yet being awake is only half the Awakening; now we got to get out of the bed we have made for ourselves and make some crucial changes. However, that takes guts, determination and a whole wad of ‘fuck you’! So as much as everyone is ranting and raving about ‘our sovereign rights’, do we really, truly want to destroy the comfy society we have created?
I kind of put it like a person in an abusive situation. Even though they are dying to leave the relationship, something in them keeps them there, even when the situation is completely screwed up. In my mind it doesn’t matter what the reason, the fact they stay in shit means deep down they silently believe they deserve it.
Now I want to pledge a question here. Do we deserve enslavement and being owned by the powers that may be? Do we deserve to be denied freedom? Do we deserve a life half-lived because we are afraid to step into the powerful place within us that knows the truth?
Too many years we have done what we’ve always done and we are getting the same results.
It is time to change the way we ACT towards the systematic approach in our life and become more of who we truly are. But that makes me ponder another question to you. Who are you? Many of you have no idea, even though you think you do. Mostly you’ve accepted this notion that you are a name, a sex, a height, a weight, a social security / tax file number, an employee, a parent, a sibling, a whatever-the-hell-makes-you-feel-normal.
Yet deep down, in the core of it all, you are far more than any of these things. You’re an inter-galactic being, who transcends time and space, death and birth; existing temporarily in a human form on a planet called Earth. You were created by something far greater than any of us could ever imagine, for a role far more powerful than we could comprehend.
So while you are worried about the teeny, weeny list of useless shit that you think is important, I want you to ponder what I’ve just said. Maybe we all need a ruthless bitch slap right now, because in my eyes we are failing miserably at remembering the truth. Each time we kind of get it, we are distracted with a whole heap of BS that actually means nothing in the scheme of things, or we fight over crap that we don’t even remember.
Just stop and think how many times you have expended energy on worrying about what other people say and do, and if you look back at what was actually said, you probably don’t remember? And consider how many distractions happen each day in your life. That is the reason advertising and marketing companies were basically created, to distract you with consumerism, to lure you to buy shit you don’t need and get into debt for something that gives you temporary fulfillment.
Hear me loud and clear when I say, NOTHING MATERIAL OR PHYSICAL on this planet will fulfill you. Nothing will give you the HIGH you are seeking. No drug. No herb. No sex. No money. No power play. No title. No mansion. No nothing! Not even the high you get the day your children are born will fulfill you entirely. They may make you feel warm and fuzzy for a while, however the high you seek only truly comes from your connection to the Source, or in Star Wars land – The Force! This is what you truly desire, to become fully connected to the eternal energy that birthed you.
You want to remember that you are not alone.
You want to live in a space of embracing who you truly, whole-heartedly are. Yet, we get distracted by all the other stuff that we forget to check in to the Source for wisdom, love and true connection. Even spiritualists get distracted by everything. Each time they are spending more of their day working out which way a chakra spins and what crystal goes where for healing, they are forgetting that within them, they know already.
So keep posted. I am here to help you see the truth and rediscover the force within you!
ps: It’s time to Question Everything!
“You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.”
