The Gods Of Our Society

 

The world does not test you. The universe does not try to strengthen you through hardship. God does not see if you can keep the faith, nor does God care. Such ideas are created and perpetuated by the weak, by those too unaware or who wish to remain ignorant so as not to have to face reality, to face the responsibility that their thoughts and actions have congruently created their hardships.

Immortal is the man who can bear the brunt of brutal pain inflicted by the strong arms of reality and responsibility; the man who can accept the truth of the origination of what we consider ‘obstacles’, who chooses to take control. A God amongst men: The person that chooses to think and take the time to learn to control his or her own thought.

For those who do not choose to take control, to take account for their own life, for the Normals, to the masses; are you any better than a basic animalistic desire of persisting purely for the sake of pleasure? Is your life no more meaningful than the entertainment you get lost in, than the mundane job you find yourself merely trading time for money? If you take the job away, in turn taking your ability and privilege to lose yourself in entertainment, why do you wake up? What is your purpose for being?

There is a reason why so many remain mortal, clutching to their life of distraction, breathing so they may remain comatose. They, the Normals, the mortals, the masses passes the buck of responsibility, accepting their fate, their livelihood to be built, determined, and constructed by someone else. They accept, even welcoming to be ruled by the “Gods,” bound and encapsulated by their every immortal movement. They pray to them every Sunday for four hours, watching the Gods tackle each other. They tune in with religious consistency to watch their magical dialogue, the lavish lives of the “Gods” being recorded and promoted so as we may bow to their prowess, so as we may pay tribute by buying their immortal merchandise. The masses kneel before them every night, losing sleep to study what they did that day in the heaven of social media. Every movement is heralded as other-worldly, living vicariously through them.

The reality of the mortals is that their existence becomes so defined by their relativity to the “Gods, making sure they’re keeping up with the Kardashians and the latest farce in the mainstream news, so flushed with fabrications. They live to forget. They live in the false pretense that the “Gods” have the divinity of Talent or Luck. Such ideas have no place, structure, or density to them; they can never prove that they have some special ability. They can simply live their stagnant lives and judge from afar and ponder what it must be like to be so blessed.

The reality of the “Gods” is that Talent isn’t real. They are able to live in such high regard, so separated from Society because they learned, consciously or unconsciously, how to direct their thought. Their divinity is in reality simply a proper application of visualizing, of creating a goal and taking actions towards it. Of living and being and acting in the way that they would if they were successful. Consequently, they became so. The masses never see the big come-up, the journey and painful process of growth. They do not see the lowly status that they once held, or maybe they choose not to. To recognize their beginnings, the truth that they were once Normals, is to accept that they could be a God. It is far easier to live a lie than it is to persist in truth.

Should one recognize their ability to create, should one take control of their life and direct it towards that which they choose, they will find, quickly, painfully, that the world is not a place of confusion and torment, rather, a clay substance for which anything and everything is molded; the beautiful and horrid.

Accept the pain of responsibility. Recognize the reality that you have created everything in your life. Choose to take control of your thoughts and you will leave the herd of mortals and will transcend into that highest light of being a God amongst men.

Why Is Mankind Not Advancing?

Why Is Mankind Not Advancing?

-or-

Even with the technology we have, why aren’t we advancing further and faster?

 

            The world is literally at our fingertips. All the knowledge in the world is at our disposal with just a couple clicks. Yet, why do we, on the whole, remain stagnant? The answer comes from a place of modern man being spoiled.

            Gone are the days in which we work to survive. Surely, wars wage on, plagues persist, famine furthers. But, for the most part, the issues only effect small parts of the world. Especially in America, we have no real issues, say for political unrest and misguided notions of when to help celebrities like Kailee Jenner. Where our downfall has come from, is from the lack of a threat of downfall.

            We have become numb to the realization that as humans, we are behaving with such woeful inadequacies that we will one day look back on this period of humanity with disgust. What use to drive us, that burning desire to endure and survive, to solve problems, to create, is so few and far between that when we see those few that work passionately and righteously, we see them on the fringe of society, unattached and seemingly in a different world. But it is these people, as it always has been, that will push even in the face of harsh backlash and criticism, until the fruits of their efforts are materialized, their names written in lights, immortalized.

            But for the masses, so blind to their potential, so distracted from reality, they yearn to be entertained. They hunger for the next show, the next event, the next day when they can wake p and scroll through hours of content on social media, a never ending borage of likes and sexualized, glamorized people, disingenuously living their lives through a fabricated lense. It is not the inherent sexuality that should be questioned, rather, why do we feel the need to be constantly entertained?

            At what point do we cease existing and transform into mindless zombies (if we haven’t already), starving for more media? At what point do we stop questioning why CEOs and Entrepreneurs have created so much wealth, lashing out at them as if they must have stolen from someone else to get their money? At what point do we realize that the unfortunate idols in our society, the entertainers, the celebrities, athletes, musicians, actors, social media stars, are doing just the same as the CEOs, have amassed far more riches, yet contributed strikingly less?  

            What do entertainers actually do for a society, for the advance of mankind? What are they producing that is shaping the world into a higher, more powerful plan? The issue is not with entertainers themselves; in reality, they are there because we have asked them. We have asked for them to live and act in such ways so as to dilute our day to day, to distract from our current reality.

            Why?

            Is it because our very existence, one that has become so entrenched in the mundane, so monotonously void of meaning, that we must live vicariously through entertainers? Could it be that our designed behavior of survivalist instincts, of pushing to be more and have more have finally faltered because we no longer have any real worries? Have we become less human because of our advancement that we have lost our drive to advance further?

            It is far easier to shirk responsibility and let someone else dictate our path. It is painful, so painful, to set a course for ourselves, to create our own destiny and live by our own creation. It is a far simpler life to focus on the shiny entertainers, than to recognize that your fate is your own: That most people will live and die just as unseen as a leaf in a forest.

            Only those few, who wake up from this daze, who bring themselves into a deafening state of awareness, will truly ever live. The inevitably of pain will persist, the necessity to further yourself from the masses, form a dull and uninspired society, from family that is regrettably entrenched in the desire for distraction. In time, the pain will subside and what will come from such anguish can blossom into those who form the Next Great Generation. Should we choose to advance, to push boundaries, to find new frontiers, to solve problems, we must recognize our weakness, our need for distraction, our loss of purpose.

Why America Is & Was – Part 2

The very idea of why America was created was to have true freedom. It was to act and be as you deem fit, not what someone else allows you to. Liberating ourselves from tyrants, from mob rule was such an important concept that we spilt blood for it. But it seems as if the more we lose awareness, the more we are controlled by the masses. 

-How many people are pulled by the fear of not fitting in?

-How many allow others to dictate their lives, whether consciously or unconsciously?

-How many live my impulsive reactions rather than by controlled, calculated thought?

 We can blame advertisements and big corporations for manipulating us into consumerism. Yet, in reality, all they have done is given us what we have asked for. If we didn’t want it and buy into it, they wouldn’t make it.

 At what point did we lose sight of what America stands for, of why it came to be? At what point did we lose that keen ability to do as we desire, not what we are told to desire? It must have begun around the time that life became easier. That we become less dependent on survival traits and found comfort in the mundane, in knowing what tomorrow will bring. But after years of such behavior, it has enslaved us to knowing the pain and mundane of tomorrow, the comfort of being let off from a job, only to dread going back.

We have accepted this as the way it is supposed to be. Why? Why do we feel that this is the only way it can be? Is it because taking responsibility and taking action is seen as more painful than the comforts of knowing what tomorrow brings, even if it is still pain? Is it that we have become so acclimated with doing the bare minimum, with doing just enough to get by so that we may have some form of consistency in our life?

 If America is to grow, if we as a nation decide to last and stand for what is right, we must take responsibility, we must take action. We must accept being uncomfortable in the light if becoming aware. To sit idle as we have for so many years is to ensure our demise. If we wish to grow, we must recognize the necessary but short tern pain of change, less we accept the lifelong dull agony of being led like sheep. Working jobs we don’t want, mindlessly buying goods we don’t need, toiling in meaningless entertainment just to escape a life that isn’t ours, is no way to live. We must push, we must demand from ourselves the best of character, of our nature as humans to persist and evolve.

Why America Is & Was – Part 1

Or:

Why you must separate yourself from society to be truly Liberated.

 

Such a curious state, when you have the intention of Liberating yourself, the idea of creating the best possible version of who you are, that you feel so disconnected with society. Amongst the masses, even in previous times of what is now realized as a false enlightenment, there was no growth. If there was any growth at all, it did not last. It was only ever enough to bring forth arrogance and an insecure base of principles. It was always a foundation that crumbled to bits as quickly as it was built. Nothing built in the mental side, being ingulfed by a societal standard, was ever fully implemented.

Anything built on the basis of a societal structure and standard will fall. The strength, the true strength, is amassed by individuals going after their own desires, never by the mob mentality that confines and limits the behavior and organizational patterns of the individual. Anything that is designed from a societal formation is at best grey, fuzzy, unclear and un-purposed. True growth comes from within, from creating yourself, not being molded by the masses.

The Next Great Generation must come from this place: a place of True Liberation. Not one so dulled and trodden by the multitude of ‘realistics’, those people who only deem possible by what has already been achieved. No, it is in, and always will be, the growth of the individual that ultimately determines the course of our life, the course of our existence as humans.
