Under the Influence:
Our world, as we have been led to believe, is an illusion. All of us live out our days performing the roles we have been conditioned to adopt with the belief it is for a greater cause. Yet, this synthetic purpose serves only the few at the grave cost of the many. Our perceptions have been manipulated over the span of our lives to hypnotize us into accepting a meager, ordinary, repressed, and selfish existence. We measure the growth of our progression by our physical appeal, our programmed intellect and our social status, while we avoid, dismiss and discredit the essential expressions of our heart and soul.
There is a massive gap between what we interpret as spirituality, religion or faith and its authentic and resourceful application into our daily lives. Many of us flock to our selected practice searching for sanctity, knowledge and the meaning of life. We kneel in blind devotion to superficial entities feigned to exist far beyond our limited commitment, comprehension and willingness. What we either don’t choose or don’t want to realize about our fidelity is that we are handing over our personal power to various beliefs sourced not by spirit, yet invented and exploited by man.
Everything about the three dimensional reality in which we exist is manipulated. From the seemingly most sacred to the utterly profane, everything we encounter in our daily occurrences has come under malevolent influence. As atypical as genuine epiphanies are in our modern lives is as rare we discover pure and true experiences beyond the realm of mortal persuasion. Our natures have become attuned to the energy of manipulation. It has desensitized, diminished and destroyed our innate propensities for acceptance, compassion, understanding, wisdom and love.
Living the Lie:
The wool of our cynicism, denial, judgment, insecurity and fear has been pulled over our perceptions. We enable exploitation to occur in our experiences simply because we are too terrified to claim and live our truth, purpose and destiny. It isn’t just the social indoctrination we are all exposed to well before the time, if ever, we remember who we truly are. It isn’t even the betrayal all of us suffer from those whom we believe are closest to us. We are all eventually seduced by and compliant to the artificial belonging, meaning and principle of common reality.
“How we perceive is what we believe.”
An Affinity for Acquiescence:
Since the dawn of belief, history, legends, stories and traditions have been invented to distract us from our souls. We have been attached to a blind faith in others more than we empower trust in ourselves. Our dependency upon the external world has enabled an ever-expanding, internal vortex that has left us aimless, empty and unfulfilled. We have been modified to a simulated lifestyle of attention, desire, status and survival. It has become the very nature of our existence. This has conditioned us to seek in others what we can only truly discover within ourselves.
Contemporary society is designed to function and exist against the flow of humanity. This is why for most of the world; life is deemed as “difficult.” The elements of apathy, challenge and distress are constantly and strategically infused into our everyday reality. We enable this belief and lifestyle by deciding to perceive it as such instead of choosing to embrace it as a powerful opportunity to transform ourselves and make a difference. The mere perception that life is excruciating and insurmountable provides the perfect circumstance and excuse to yield our personal power and become social slaves.
We are multi-dimensional beings with vision and potential that reaches well beyond our human experience of imagination. We have the ability to create, express, exist and destroy. Our potential for adaptation, endurance, relation and transformation far surpasses our inclinations to consume, think, reason or feel. Our addictions to our personal dramas, judgments and opinions distort our discovery, focus and purpose. We have the inherent ability to clarify, intend and manifest all that our heart and soul desires. Yet we continue to sacrifice our opportunities at the zenith of their possibility.
“It is only as real as we believe it to be.”
Towing the Line:
For centuries, the human race has born witness to the tragic consequences of a society ruled by the wants of the few at the cost of the needs of the many. Each of us bears the burden of this “reality.” Most of us are not willing to be present to or engaged in the human catastrophes of global inequality, injustice and impunity. It has become contemptible, impractical and political to identify or entertain the vital issues of our contemporary time. Consciousness transcends the current trends of our society, though its presence and expression garners great animosity and resistance.
Turning the Tide:
Those of us committed to and empowered by truth realize standing for it always requires great sacrifice, dedication and ridicule. When we are inspired to choose to embark on our journey for authenticity, integrity, purpose and the fulfillment of our true destiny, the whole world appears to descend upon us. The more we live against the popular currents of present day society, not with defiance but intention; we realize that even the strongest tides shift. The affirmations we receive when our actions, thoughts, feelings and insights make a difference are the foundation upon which our transformation is possible.
A Call to Destiny:
We each have a vital contribution in the evolution and transcendence of the human race. Our intuitive vision, personal power and creative expression make an extraordinary difference in the way we perceive, interact and exist in society. The composition of our reality is created in the wake of our focus, truth, purpose and love. The extent of our expansion and transformation is defined by our commitment to express, share and sustain its presence in our daily lives. No matter how often we have opted to defer our personal responsibility, we are entitled only to fulfill our destiny.
An Emanation of Truth:
The world will always be exploited to the degree we enable with our amusement, drama, egotism, indifference and oblivion. The power and possibility to transcend the present condition of society has always been within us. It is up to all of us to offer our personal contribution for its manifestation. Each one of our unique expressions is essential and significant to the multi-dimensional experience of global transformation. This is the fundamental dynamic of enlightenment. It is the only choice we will ever have to make. If we don’t choose to be a universal emanation of truth, who will?
