Possibility: question everything -- an interview with lifebyme.com
Throughout my life, I’ve questioned everything. I don't believe any of it (the ugliness and negativity) and I don’t accept any of it, but I’m not angry or rebellious. I’m a joy-filled soul, and I joyfully reject it all.
For me, questioning is about throwing off lies and illusions and seeking out the essential truth of what it means to be a human being. It’s about living as a happy human being in truth.
Essential truth represents what things were before they were corrupted by modern life (and its ignorance). Finding essential truth involves uncovering the foundation of possibility that has been buried beneath thousands of years of lies and misconceptions.
Most of us are sleepwalking and don’t know it. We work in meaningless jobs at corporations which feed off of our energy. Then we’re bombarded with manipulation through fruitless consumerism and mindless entertainment.
We’ve been distracted from our power, but we can take that power back and create a beautiful world. We can decide to take a radical departure from what we accept as reality. There’s a place inside each of us that cannot be coerced to think a certain way or behave a certain way. Just beyond the horizon of the so-called impossible is infinite possibility. Anyone can find it if they choose to wake-up.
One of the most essential things I’ve done is turn off the TV. TV is such a powerful weapon of mass distraction and psychological programming. Basically, I turned off the conditioning. I decided I didn’t want to live life vicariously through fictional characters on TV. I don’t need to be entertained. Life is my entertainment.
Turn off the TV and start living. Start looking around. Question everything, including yourself. Have the courage to question yourself.
Don’t worry about what other people think. That’s been another important step for me in escaping the gravity of mediocrity. I had an epiphany. I realized that one day I’m going to die and no one is going to die for me. I’ve got to face death alone, so I surely don’t want anyone telling me how to live while I’m alive.
What we see in today’s society is all a choice. We’re each authors of this experience called life. We can create a world where we have more joy, where we’re the wonderful expression of unique possibility that is humanity. I deeply wish wonder, excitement and creative joy for every soul. Everyone should have a beautiful space to live in.
