"awake. are YOU?"
Are YOU really AWAKE?
Now take some time to think about this. I mean REALLY think about it. I’m not talking here about how much caffeine you have in your body at the moment or how much you’re not in need of sleep. I’m talking about the realization that if you are awake to what reality truly is and what life really is about. You see, most people are asleep in this world. Some are partially. Some are ignorant. And then there are some that are just flat out naive.
There are many facets that come into being awake. I will only discuss a few and hopefully be able to kickstart some of you. For starters, Life is now. This moment. And that’s it! Tomorrow does not exist for anybody. The only true moment that exists is right now, right here. Most people have this idea that the next hour, day, week, year, etc. exists. That it is guaranteed. Get out of that illusion ASAP before you start contemplating late in life “where did my Life go?” Well it went while you were ALWAYS planning for the next FUTURE event. So please realize now is all you have and make the most of each day.
Second. Who said Life was meant to go in a cycle of working 40+ hours/5 days a week? And you get 2 days off a week to “enjoy Life” plus vacation time to “enjoy” even more Life. Who made these rules? Many of you have been conditioned by society to follow that path and work that cycle until you retire. Umm, let me tell you something, you may not make it to that age to enjoy Life then. Death knows no boundaries. Some put off Life until that weekend or that vacation. Last I knew we were born to live every day, not just exist. So don’t fall victim of what and how to live your life on what society considers “normal” because that “normal” is how society is controlled. Go to school, get a degree, get married, have kids, retire. That’s social conditioning garbage. Life is meant to live it how you want to, not how society deems it okay for how you should live it. Don’t get me wrong, some people want to truly live this way, but most just accept this as fact without questioning it. It’s just the way “it’s supposed to be” they say. Wrong. It’s just the way you were conditioned to think it should be.
Third. Time is man-made. Life doesn’t know hours or days. If you don’t believe this, take a look back when you were sick with the flu. You did not care what time it was or what day. Why? Because the realization comes to you in some way, whether it be subconsciously, that the main thing at the moment (the key word being MOMENT) is to get better. That your Life is the most important thing at the moment and nothing else matters. Time does not exist. It never has. Remember that man invented clocks. And for those of you that have gone to Vegas, there’s no clocks in the casinos. Well if you think about it, you weren’t exactly wondering what time it was while there. You were enjoying Life, right?
Fourth. Governments, religion, media, in general are there to control society. Don’t get me wrong there is some good to all of those, but the mass of them were taken and used to control the masses by abusing its power. All are used to instill fear: unnecessary laws, religious doctrine, information of a “cruel” outside world. Don’t believe everything you hear from any of these entities. While there is some truth to all of them, though much of it is not. These three entities are guilty of abusing their power to the masses that give them their trust. Remember it’s not everyone within these organizations, but the majority.
Fifth. Your perception is your reality. This is pretty straight-forward and simple but many seem to not realize the truth of it. No two people have the same reality. None. Why? Because everyone perceives their own world differently. Yes, two people can experience a similar emotion, but the experience for each individual will not be exactly same. Remember that. What’s good for you, may be shit for someone else, so don’t be too hard on others. You don’t know what their perception of their world is at that moment…and it can change at any time.
Sixth. Change. Accept it. It’s inevitable. Life evolves and progresses. Nothing stays stagnant. And if it does try, it’s slowly dying. Life is meant to evolve and progress. If you don’t like change, well too bad because Life doesn’t ask. It will change whether you like it or not. It’s up to you to steer it in the direction you want it to go.
Seventh. There are signs everywhere around you that act as guides. You just need to pay attention. Most people are just in this perpetual cycle of nonsense busyness that they don’t tend to be aware. If you see constant resistance in doing something, or with having something, you probably shouldn’t be doing or having it (I’m not talking about naysayers here. I’m talking about constant obstacles arising). It’s definitely time to reevaluate if you see this happening to you. Things don’t “just” happen. EVERYTHING happens for a reason. Whether you understand it at that moment or not. Or it might not even be of great relevance for you to understand, but everything has a reason for happening. Pay attention.
Life doesn’t act as we were some numb zombies. Life isn’t that. It is just that most people are not awake to what Life really is or how it functions. Put in motion what you want out of life on your terms, not on society’s conditioning “norms”. Be awake on what the reality of Life really is, not on what you have been fed the majority of your life.
