You were born free … a bundle of tremendous potential.
You were loved, and loved unconditionally...God, sometimes your parents, and the good of the Earth loved you. They still do, though you forget that from time to time.
The concept of lack was foreign to you.
As you grew you started to question the world around you. As well you should.
You hunted fireflies on warm summer nights and you put them in jars to light your room at night. Every day was a new adventure in learning and joy.
And the door to your imagination was never locked. Hope sprang eternal and that always.
Einstein said, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” But government schools were more interested in you becoming an obedient drone … and they wound up killing your joy of learning. You reacted intuitively to the slave masters.
You were ridiculed when you challenged the status quo. By the stupid, the power hungry, and those lesser lights who hated your innate brilliance.
You were judged … and so learned to judge others. The first of many steps to the Fall...
And so you allowed group mentality to sway your actions and decisions. Another step away from freedom and being an individual.
The Powers That Be worked very hard to make you believe you have no power, no control. So, you did as you were told, and feared the consequences of what would happen if you did not. You became ruled by fear. Only those with inner strength knew that fear was slavery at its worst.
But, your beliefs were formed by television programming. And enforced obedience to stunted authority figures who hated the light and free expression as much as they hate anything that isn't soulless as themselves.
And what your culture says you should believe about God …. pick one. Organized religion made sure your divine relationship with real spirituality was brutally maimed and that always.
And by what your government wants you to believe about itself, and what you should sacrifice for blind Patriotism. Die for jingoistic slogans, the way of our world in the 21st century.
You sought news of the world … but were fed propaganda. Those with the truth were bankrupted, sidelined and maligned and slandered. You were taught not to trust the truth but to believe in endless lies.
You were presented with continuous distractions to keep you from questioning the reality around you. The word amusement means "to not think."
You were kept deliberately ignorant. Ignorance is slavery, not strength.
You were given hope … that you could effect change by voting. But hope was crushed when you realized both parties played the same hand.
So, you joined the rat race as no other options seemed evident. Obey...grovel...consume...die. These became your credos, whether you knew it nor not.
You were trained to be a consumer. True freedom is a crime to the devils in power.
You bought into The American Dream. Which, as it happens, no longer exists anymore.
They fed you poison. Die fucker die! That is the NEW American Dream.
You acquired debt. Those who owe are never free.
You ….. conformed. Is it any wonder you feel confused and hopeless? Conformance is slavery of the worst kind: you surrendered your true self to go along with other slaves.
But … you’ve felt it all your life …. that it’s all just an illusion. And found out that you were one in a million, a rarity. And a target for extermination. The more awake you became, the more the system stomped on every aspect of your being. Only The Holy Lord, "God" still loved you unconditionally.
You let the past dictate your present, and you worry about your future. But you only have the present … living in the moment is all you can do. Once you realize no one has power over your thoughts … you will never again act against your will. Like the drunks, you realize all anyone can do is live one day at a time. The system that hates you prevents any real kind of long term planning from ever happening.
Just remember who you are … the same soul that was born all those years ago (though your years may be closer in age to the hands holding the baby).
But, years of conditioning almost completely eroded your sense of who you are, and the power within you. Don’t you want to change? Will you roll the red die, or the green one?
It’s your choice, completely. Fight, first for your soul, then your mind, then for what is right and true. For they are all one and the same thing and always have been.
