If i took a coin and renamed it red, how would you describe it?
Now that red is no longer a color and a piece of metal is no longer a coin, what would you say?
What if all that you know, or think that you know, was only what I said to be true?
I know you’re thinking that’s ridiculously insane, one person can’t possess that much power or knowledge of the world and/ the universe.
But i have to tell you that one person do.
We’ve been taught our ancestors handed down information for years, yet all of our information comes from social media, alternative news, and in a few books that we’ve repetitively been taught in school.
People have become so content with learning about others findings instead of discovering it their self.
Why not visit the pyramids of Giza, instead of viewing it in a photo?
Why not smell the air of the mountains instead of listening to a tale from some old souls?
Heck, why not name a flower what you want it to be called?
I agree, it is hard when you have all of the back masking music twisting up your unconscious mind.
Then you have the thriller/horror ‘what if..’ movies that turn into ‘how to..’ movies for serial killers and psychopaths.
Truly we all have been desensitized, our minds have manipulated our curiosity and courage into overconfidence in what may happen and fear to not move so that it won’t happen.
Like if i told you a short cut would shed an hour off of your travel time, then you go and watch the movie ‘Wrong Turn..’
I guarantee, you will gladly accept that hour and avoid that short cut.
Which is natural, fear is what helps us to move with caution and to survive.
But now fear has become the way to keep us from discovering and innovating.
We all want to be free of all deceptions and ignorance, but how can we if we choose to remain oblivious to our chains?
How can we, when some of us are still asleep in Platos cave?
How can we?
My entire point is not to downplay fear, what you think you know or your life in any way.
My point is that, in order to awaken our minds to the world of possibilities we each have in our hands.
We have to unlearn what we’ve been taught.
By simply acknowledging that there is more to learn and always more to take in.
Not only shall we seek the knowledge of our lands and outer worlds, we shall also grow and evolve from it.
History should only repeat itself,when the first lesson wasn’t learned.
For those who still don’t get it, let me sum it up with less words.
“We rather hear about it, instead of doing it. So lets do it, instead.”
Be woke, minds.
Be free, tongues.
Be open, heart
Peace & Love Always!
