“We are the problem that leads to the solution.”
Nobody owes us, nor are we entitled to anything in this world. Though it is an inconvenient truth, we are not of benefit to this earth. We are a biological epidemic, consuming vital resources at the expense of our own equality, freedom, justice and purpose. Our personal perceptions are processed through a virtually institutionalized marketplace of subjective reality. Society prepares us for an artificially sheltered life. We are bred to be terrified of everyone and everything distinct from ourselves. Our pride, prejudice and self-righteousness are imposed necessities for our social survival.
The “I” Syndrome:
We are culturally programmed to design our lives around ourselves. Our justification for this self-centered strategy is the dire and inevitable personal, professional and social consequences should we refuse. The focus of our ambition, attention and intention is entirely dictated by our ego. Eventually, we become enslaved by the vicious cycle of our desire, want and vanity at the cost of our happiness, love and truth. When faced with an opportunity to give and share, we often decide to thoughtlessly receive and accumulate. Our survival becomes a comfortable euphemism for our egocentricity.
As much as our contemporary society invents ways to accelerate a market place of planned obsolescence for profit, so too has it become for human beings. Awareness and practice in personal health is of meager priority. Benevolence, ethics and virtues have been replaced by personal achievement, competition and wealth. Apathy, denial and evasion compromises our sense of adventure, fulfillment and purpose. Humanity has become a disposable life form, engineered, manipulated and prohibited to reach its true destiny. Our shelf life declines as our appetite increases.
Enter the Void:
How we choose to live determines whether we are a creator or a destroyer. There is no middle ground. Who and how we are being is either an expression of our life or death. We are seduced by society to be entertained and mystified by human decline, disgrace and destruction. In many ways, it may make us feel better about the status of our own life when we see the downfalls and failures of others. We live in the shadows of our superficiality and become inhabitants of a surreal reality. Our choice or lack thereof condemns us to the adoption of our own oblivion.
The Illusion of Time:
If reality is the ball, time is the chain of our personal enslavement. Time, like most things in this world, is only as influential as our perception empowers. We have allowed our personal power to be inverted into a private prison. The seemingly overwhelming effort and price of achieving our individual destiny, purpose and vision often outweighs its manifestation. Time is an illusion of perception invented to distort and modify our multi-dimensionality into a linear duality. The more we perceive our lives in the measurement of time, the more we give them away to this linear deception.
“We live our lives through the eyes of others.”
Persuasion of Perception:
Perception is the most influential force in society. In a civilization lacking creativity, faith and intuition, the social engineering and manipulation of observation is a business model for the industries we enable. Power is not fame, politics, possession and wealth. It is the ability to alter and control the way society perceives itself. Every day in every way financial institutions, corporations, politicians and a myriad of agencies seek ways to implant and impose their agendas and motivations upon humanity. Perception creates reality. How we see the world is more powerful than anything in it.
The reality we commonly experience in life is a complex simulation. It is the greatest deception ever created. As ingenious as its existence, is our engagement, faith and trust in it. Reality is a projection that all of us accept and adopt as “real.” However, it is anything but authentic. The dynamic of reality is one that gives the impression of possibility and security, yet in truth is exclusive and perilous. Those who understand its mechanics and probabilities often alter, distort and manipulate its design for advantage, position and profit. The life we live is not at all as it seems. It is an illusion.
Our lives are a dream. They are a fabrication of social engineering designed to distract, entertain and preoccupy. The common experience we all have isn’t really “life.” It is a staged sequence of virtual events to disillusion, intimidate and manipulate our instincts, thoughts and emotions. We are programmed to become disassociated from our souls since the time we are born. Our lives are dictated more by external forces than those from within. We are rats in a three-dimensional maze, ever searching for an exit that doesn’t exist. The bars of our social prison are as pervasive as they are absolute.
Appeal of Testimony:
Before we can break free from the bonds of our adopted conditioning, we must first acknowledge our role in the vicious cycle of contemporary society. Each one of us is responsible for the destructive nature of reality. We allow our egos to transmit our anger, competition, envy, frustration and intolerance. Even if we decide to cop an innocent plea of ignorance, it does not exonerate us from our contribution to a culture of selfishness. No matter how much we attempt to mystify ourselves, our freedom is found in our commitment to accountability, integrity and transformation.
Awareness is a lonely path. It is an intimate venture we all must discover, empower, practice and fulfill. No other person has the insight, inspiration, passion and right to achieve what only we can for ourselves. When we establish our true vision of who we are and how we create our life, we distinguish ourselves from the mass imposition of reality. We see it for what it is and what it is not; a prison for the heart and soul. Awakening to the artificial dynamics of reality creates the possibility for our soul to thrive in our life. Our consciousness is the measure of its manifestation.
“Our vision is the truest expression of our soul.”

‘Our shelf life declines as our appetite increases.’ What a great statement.

It is always a pleasure to read your thoughts.
But I must insist that there is a middle path, with creation in one hand, and destruction in the other.
And by its very design life is solipsistic. Becoming a fulcrum of balance seems to be the task.
The ego can be redeemed. It is a broken child, tortured into insanity to become a mad god.
Mick, indeed. I would venture to say that most of humanity is somewhere in between. Whether we are a creator or a destroyer, it requires a choice and commitment. The middle path seemingly lacks this.
Is it what is called ‘divine indifference’?
I found it curious that the Assassins Creed film pushed the ‘there is no truth’ and ‘everything is permitted’ concept.
That is a good way of putting it.
Perhaps it is that there is no “overall” truth, yet over 6 billion different truths.
