Do You Remember….Who You Were Meant to Be?

You were born FREE…..a bundle of tremendous potential….6106993433_451ea9e9be_b

As you grew you started to question the world around you…

You dreamed of a world far away, places not imagined by others, and stories that only you could dream….the door to your imagination was never closed…

With your curiosity peaked, you began your formal education….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 were ridiculed if you dared challenge the status quo by both those in charge and your peers..

You were judged so you learned the lesson to judge others…

With that valuable lesson learned, you allowed group mentality to sway your actions and influence your decisions…..you were slowly becoming part of the herd

The Powers to Be worked very hard to make you believe you have no power, no control. So you began to do as you were told and you began to fear the consequences of what would happen if you did not. You became ruled by this fear….to fit in, accept what is given as fact and you were provided stern examples of those that strayed……quickly understanding what “Zero Tolerance” really meant.

Your view of the worldly shaped and molded by various forms of media. Culture attempting to sway your beliefs in God and Faith. Your government telling you what you should believe of “IT” and what you should be willing to sacrifice out of blind “patriotism” for “IT”.

siYou sought out “news” only to be feed propaganda. You were presented with constant distractions to keep you from questioning the reality around you.

You were given hope that you could effect change by voting. But hope was crushed as you began to realize both parties were playing the same hand.

So you conformed, is it any wonder you feel alone or the world makes no sense? You have felt it all your life…..that the events of the world are just an illusion in a bigger game……dare to think.images5QAT46C7

We let the past dictate our present, and we worry about our future. But we only have the present … living in the moment is all we can do.  Once WE THE PEOPLE realize no one has power over our thoughts … we will never again act against our will.

Just remember who you are, the same soul bornFREE” all those years ago….

Dare to be different, dare to question, dare to challenge the status quo

It is completely our choice…………………………………….

    Wow, thanks for telling me what happened to you. You should probably been born before everyone got so smart.

      Thanks for reading the blog. Post had nothing to do with me personally, I would beg to differ on “everyone got so smart”. But, take from the post what you will again thanks for reading.

      • Mike says:

        Everyone got so smart is in reference to the “me” generation who think they are a lot smarter than they really are. I was born in 1941 when there was structure, rules and even laws that most people tried to follow. Everyone can certainly do as they please, but how many are equipped to survive anarchy?

    Very few sir, but the system has made them that way, the very point of this blog post. No one thinks for themselves, no one really questions the ineptitude of our government, they follow the herd, police their own speech, and march in lock step with the status quo. Your generation had rules, but was governed by the rugged individualism that makes America great not by some worry if you “offended someone”. Individualism made this country great, not laws, rules, or government, but the unyielding spirit of each American.

      It seems that we are seeing things from opposite view points. You think Americans have become drones. I think that Americans have become too independent, that they need more order and guidance in their lives. As a nation we are not very educated. Most people can’t think for themselves because they haven’t had to. The basics are provided for them, but they have received the wrong values, so they go off on wrong tangents. For instance, in the entertainment industry, we have technical geniuses who are at the same time moral idiots. Instead of violent video games and movies, they could be providing educational material. Not too educational at first, wouldn’t want to scare them. Just bring it on gradually. Pretty soon they might want to learn again instead of just blowing virtual game characters to virtual smithereens.
