“To follow is human, to lead is divine.”
We are born into a reality designed to condition us into submission. Our daily lifestyle is rooted in a default pattern of blind servitude. We are enslaved by an artificial realism so ingenious it exploits our belief to sustain its existence. Our human virtues are used against us in a merciless and relentless social control system. Once we become engaged in a two-dimensional perception within the three-dimensional reality, we forfeit our connection with our intuition and soul. Our vision narrows, our intention is repressed and our experience is transmuted from one of action to reaction.
Our dependence begins before we are born. Social standards foster our reliance upon others. Though we have the freedom and opportunity to enlighten ourselves with our experience, we are conditioned through education, environment, heredity and religion. Therefore, many never fulfill their personal development of individuation. Society alters, diminishes and distorts our creativity, insight and originality into an everyday routine of intellect, desire and instinct. Adolescence is our last stand before we inevitably abandon our choice to make a difference in our lives and the world.
Boundaries of Being:
We are not encouraged to thrive on our destined path. We merely survive the constant imposition of authoritarian social agendas to dehumanize and desensitize us into ordinary thoughts, behaviors and actions. The balance between positive and negative in the critical mass of humanity trends grossly toward the latter. Human negativity has woven its chaotic and dense frequencies into the roots of our existence. Social reality isolates us in numerous ways to stimulate our animosity, envy and opposition. It uses our own anger, doubt, fear and resignation to condemn us into a dualistic state of being.
Design of Dependence:
Our social conditioning is stimulated by an inauthentic obligation to coexist. Most relationships are compromised by conflict, culpability and dysfunction. We are socially obligated to be reliant upon others. This false necessity provides a fruitless experience that ultimately leads to separation. It is not the alienation between us and the people in our lives that causes our loneliness. It is the dissociation we have with our self that leads to this widespread societal disorder. Our apathy, doubt, fear and futility produce delusions of bravery, certainty, fortitude and grandeur. We are programmed to be dependent upon others at the cost of our soul.
We are raised to follow. Once we are institutionally indoctrinated into the captivity of reality, we instinctively settle into lifestyles of social opposition. Our lack of commitment, confidence and practice in our lives prevents their fulfillment. The visions of others appear more credible to us than clarifying, expressing and manifesting our own. We emulate them out of desperation to conform instead of creating our own with the intention of belonging. In the moment we decide to follow in another’s footsteps, we sacrifice our vision, personal power and purpose. Inevitably, we resign our leadership and become a shadow of our self.
“Truth to one is a lie for another.”
A Dime a Dozen:
There are millions of charismatic, overconfident people who line up to take a swing at our curious sensibilities. Those who possess just enough arrogance, ego and knowledge to believe their perception of how our life is best lived. It is easy for them to assume this role when we become enchanted by their alluring presence, eloquent expression and magnetic personality. Yet, when the rubber of their wisdom meets the road of our daily experience, it fails to deliver fulfillment. We inhibit our soul when we give them our enthusiasm, energy, interest and trust. Our personal power is abandoned for an illusion of being.
The Forest for the Trees:
Everything we have ever felt, thought, said, done or been resides in the oblivion of our memory. We cling to our triumphs and downfalls of the past and the promise and anxiety of our future. Who we were yesterday or who we are to become does not serve us in the present. All of us yearn for belonging, importance, meaning and transformation. Yet, we often fail to create a life that inspires us due to our fear of failure and ridicule. Our true path is one we must walk alone amid great adversity, opposition and uncertainty. Our greatest challenge is being conscious in the moment.
We were never meant to follow. Our best opportunity in life is to disengage from the mainframe of social reality and relate exclusively with our soul and the universe. Manifesting our true self, fulfilling our unique purpose and supporting others in theirs is our mutual calling. This is the most challenging path we will ever walk. There are few instructions and fewer signs to guide us. Only the universal force that compels and inspires our creativity, insight and transformation. Every option we choose contrary to our destiny takes us further away from who we are meant to be.
Quest for Fire:
Our lives are burdened with social obligation at the cost of our purpose. The sole shadow we are captive to is our own. We are the only ones who can claim our power. However daunting a task it may be, the utmost form of personal failure is choosing not to embrace and express it. Each of us receive an infinite amount of energy from the universe. This is the multi-dimensional essence that connects our soul with our heart, mind and body. It is the source of our power. How we embody, cultivate and emanate it defines who we become. We are the soul creators of our experience.
Source of Empowerment:
Our life has infinite possibilities. Our choices, intentions, passions and willingness define how it exists in society. It is one thing to emulate an ordinary life based upon our perception, what we know and how we survive. It is another thing entirely to create an extraordinary life based upon our intuition, who we are and how we thrive. We are superconductors who empower, inspire and navigate our way through the chaos, confusion and gravity of social reality. Our choice to manifest our purpose is the only power that will transform our experience.
“Creativity is the expression to our brilliance.”
