Have you ever realized how enslaving and oppressive the world is, when you look at it from a higher perspective? It seems like a prison matrix full of sheep, zombies, robotic slaves, bums, criminals, and oppressors, rather than happy free conscious aware beings full of love and wisdom. That's because the inherent nature of our societal system produces three types of people:
1. Robots/slaves/sheep/zombies/conformists -- Most people are in this category. They are conformist sheep, living only to work and raise a family, harboring a materialistic mindset and judgmental attitude. They do not think for themselves, but only know what they are taught, and believe whatever everyone else believes. They live to work in order to make a living, never realizing that such is an oxymoron because if all you do is make a living, and you have nothing else to live for, then you have no life or real purpose to "make a living" for in the first place. These slaves live in mind numbing routines that tie them down, simply because that's the way they were taught to live. They are enslaved, and conditioned to want it, seeing no other choice. Many become workaholics to the extreme. The mainstream are like this, particularly in American and Asian cultures. They judge others by materialistic standards. As such, they look down upon nonconformists who dare to be different with disdain and contempt.
2. Bums/degenerates/drug users/alcoholics/criminals -- This type consists of people unable to conform to the system. So they rebel and end up as homeless bums, delinquents, drug users, alcoholics, low level petty criminals, pot smoking hippies, etc. Society views them negatively as degenerates and losers who are dangerous if not controlled. You find such types in the bad parts of a city. The educational and economic system basically raises you to see two choices in life - become a robot slave to work in order to make a living, or become a impoverished degenerate bum and be despised by society. (Gee what a bleak choice) In effect, society skews the "security vs. freedom" dichotomy into a negative choice, by attaching negative consequences to real freedom (becoming an impoverished degenerate bum) and insinuating that security through slavery/enslavement is the correct and socially acceptable choice.
3. Oppressors/predators/bullies/sociopaths/tyrants -- These are power hungry oppressors who use fear and intimidation to control and dominate others. They are like predators that prey upon the weak and vulnerable in a "dog eat dog" Darwinistic world. In a competitive society where people are conditioned to view others as adversaries, they choose to be cruel heartless a-holes to get to the top. They thrive on power and will use any means necessary to accomplish their goals. To them, the ends justify the means. They relish being "a-holes" and enjoy bullying and intimidating others. Power by nature attracts evil people rather than good, and it is these types that it attracts, who often end up in leadership positions. That's why you commonly find such types in management and executive level positions. They are cold, impersonal and view people only as statistics. Some are sociopaths without conscience -- they can lie and start wars and bloodshed to promote their interests, yet sleep ok at night with no guilt. They range from thugs and mobsters, to white collar criminals, to corrupt politicians, tyrants and dictators above the law.
Most people fall into one of the three types above. Or they are a blend of them, passing through each type during different stages in their life. In fact, you can feel the vibes/energy of these types above everywhere you go amidst masses of people in public places, which is very sad, and alienating as well if you do not fall into one of the three types yourself.
Yet all these types simply suck. When you see them for what they are, you realize how insane they are. None of them live truly happy or free. They are all in effect, negative choices and speak volumes about the dysfunctional society that we live in. Obviously something must be very messed up to produce such types in the majority of people. We obviously live in a world of enslavement and control, a prison matrix so to speak.
That's why it is difficult to find this fourth type which is the rarest:
4. Freethinkers/freespirits/nonconformists/intellectuals/truth-seekers/spiritually-inclined -- These are the rarest. Being conscious, aware, spiritually-oriented and unslaved, they find a way to live a fruitful and meaningful life with freedom to discover one's own purpose. They are liberated from the fear of what others think of them, and live in a world of possibilities rather than limitations. They are less materialistic, less judgmental, more wise, and have learned to shed attachments to live more simply. This type is the closest to self-actualization. As such, they prefer to inspire, empower, and uplift others rather than bring them down. Yet it is the rarest type because society does not condition you to be this way. We are conditioned to be materialistic, conformist and live to work. We are taught what to think, not how to think, making us conform to groupthink and highly judgmental of others. Thus this fourth type is the least common. One has to think outside the box and go through a process of transformation in order to find it. But even if one finds it, their next challenge then becomes that of a "starving artist" or "Bohemian", struggling to live the #4 way of life successfully without falling down into the #2 type.
And that's the purpose of this article, to present this fourth option to you and show you how to make it work, so that you can live the freest and most liberated life possible. Let's begin by looking at the way we are brought up in society, and how we are programmed, conditioned and deceived.
"An unexamined life is not worth living."
From birth, we are taught obedience and conformity in school.
Then we are conditioned to believe that our purpose in life is to "work
and make money" (become a slave in other words). All of this
serves to condition people to "want" a life of enslavement. If you've
noticed, when most Americans (and Asians) who "live to work" lose their jobs or
become unemployed, they feel worthless and miserable, as though
their lives had no meaning, purpose or function anymore. Without a form of
"paid enslavement" and servitude, they have no idea what to do, as
they are empty and void on the inside with no value except that given to them
by the economic system. In effect, they are "depressed without their
enslavement" which is crazy and bizarro if you
think about it. This is the result of their conditioning. It's a really sad
sordid state of affairs. But that is how people are conditioned.
To distract us from our enslavement, the mainstream media
feeds us mind numbing useless content such as professional sports, celebrity
news, politics, tragedies, crime, economic news, gay rights issues, and other
meaningless crap that is irrelevant to our lives. That is the reason for all
the garbage content on mainstream media channels - they don't want you to think
too much or realize the prison matrix you're in and the lies you've been
brainwashed with. As the conspiracy crowd and alternative media put it:
"The elites want to dumb you down and keep you in a state of fear and survival,
so you don't think too much." They are certainly right about that. We are
conditioned to live in fear for a reason. Fear keeps you in a lower state of
consciousness where you are less aware and less able to think clearly, and more
controllable. This is why most Americans (and East Asians) are in a state of
irrational fear and paranoia, even when there is no rational reason to be, or
actual danger present. It's not an accident. There is a nefarious reason for
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
- Thomas Jefferson
"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws."
- Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in
the hands of a few, but we can't have both."
In fact, technically there is no such a thing as a democracy which
is easily proven by basic logic. A democracy is defined as a "rule by the
majority", however, anyone knows that the
majority or common people have no control over government policy. If it did,
then there would be no senseless wars, no taxes, healthcare would be free or
affordable, the atrocious banking bailout of 2008 (which the American people
didn't want) would never have been passed, and the income tax amendment would
never have been ratified (no majority would ever be in favor of income taxes of
course). So, the notion of a democracy is debunked by basic logic. Yet
amazingly, many people still believe that a democracy exists, simply because
they are told so and others believe it too. My, how gullible people are!
"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson."
- U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a letter written Nov. 21, 1933 to Colonel E. Mandell House
"Money is the possibility or the right to exploit the labours of others. Money is a new form of slavery, which differs form the old only in being impersonal, and in freeing people from all the human relations of the slave."
- Leo Tolstoy
You see, children are naturally born with imagination, curiosity and wonder. But when they are around 13 years of age, they are given the bad news - that they must "grow up" and begin to embrace the cold practical world of obedience, conformity, living to make money and attaining a career. This "growing up" is the process of trading the rich world of imagination, creativity and fantasy, for the cold materialistic world of slavery, productivity and monotonous routine in servitude to the economic system. The school's job is to aid in this transition - from human/spiritual being to robotic slave. After this transition, the only fantasies and dreams one is supposed to have are those related to making money and attaining a career. This is how the control system molds and grooms us to live in the prison matrix.
Hence, the true purpose of school is unveiled - to train and condition them to become disciplined obedient slaves and workers. In short, school is there to prepare them for a JOB. And if they go to college, they get to become a "well-paid" wage slave at that. Woo-hoo! In this system, the child-like wonder, curiosity and imagination that children were born with is squelched, as they are groomed to become economic resources whose worth is determined by their career, productivity and material value.
"I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself."
- Rita Mae Brown
What's worse, social cliques in high school are composed of zombies/slaves (obedient nerds who only care about grades and studying), a-holes (teens who act depraved, hostile and put others down to prop themselves up without regard for other's feelings) and fake people (pretty much everyone). This means that if you are a teen who is sincere, authentic, nice, down to earth, sane, rational and logical, you simply have no place or clique to fit into. Who ever heard of an "authentic/sincere/genuine/down to earth" clique in high school? lol Thus high school becomes the most lonely, invalidating and alienating existence, if you are authentic and sane.
Most people strive for #1. They become enslaved and live to work, assuming they have no other choice. But when you think about it, #1 is absurd, because what's the point of earning a living, if you have no freedom to do what you want with your life or create/find your own purpose? In fact, one of the greatest and most enlightening questions you could ever ask yourself is: What is the point of making a living, if all you do everyday is work to make a living? It's a self-defeating circular loop and internal contradiction. What are you making a living for? What are you living for? All you're doing is maintaining a life of enslavement, with no freedom to create or find a "purpose" for your life or soul. Instead, your duty is to be a workaholic slave - just so you can "sustain" your living and pay your bills.
Another awakening question you can ask yourself is: Why is am I always told that I live in a "free country" yet in childhood I had to suffer the imprisonment of school everyday and do what I'm told, and in adulthood I have to submit to the stressful and demanding imprisonment of a job everyday in order to make ends meet? It doesn't make any sense when you think about it, and is a huge contradiction between what you are told vs. reality.
"The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane."
- Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor
- Friederich Nietzsche
Now I am not against doing something productive with your
life. What I am against is raising humans in oppressive environments where they
are treated like slaves, dumbed down, mind
controlled, given no freedom, kept in a state of fear and survival mode, taught
to judge their worth by their career and material assets, and brainwashed to
believe that their sole purpose in life is to make money, to the point where
they will feel empty and depressed without a job to enslave them. That's just
plain wrong, cruel and oppressive. Humans ought to live freely and be allowed
to create their own purpose, (as long as they don't harm others) discover
themselves, find their bliss and true calling, and operate from a state of
consciousness and awareness, rather than live in fear under oppression and
philosophy and spirituality teach balance. A person needs to balance their
inner life (spirituality) with their outer life, and they need to balance their
right and left brain hemispheres. However, society conditions you to be empty
inside while seeking gratification in materialism, and to only use left brained
logic to understand things. Where's the balance in that?
Solutions and Suggestions
"The biggest prison that most people live in is the fear of what others think."
- David Icke
They have the POWER to do all these things, and no one can take that away from them unless they let them. But most people don't realize their true power. So they let society and others define their purpose and identity for them. That's the sad reality, and why I am so passionate about helping people to wake people up to the truth about their condition and liberate them.
Likewise, when people get laid off, they can choose to NOT feel depressed or feel like a failure, by simply realizing that they are "not what they do" as they've been led to believe. (This is especially easy if you didn't even like your job) And in school, when they get a bad grade, they can choose to NOT feel bad about it, because in truth, a mark on a piece of paper means nothing unless you "think" it does. (Same with professional sports - it's not important unless you "think" it is) You can simply choose not to care, and to not give a sh**.
Remember this: You cannot change society or the world, but you do have POWER over your own mind and thoughts. So exercise it. No one can take that away from you unless you let them. That's the key. Remember that, if nothing else. You can start by stop taking everything so seriously. Unpaid bills and debt are not going to kill you or physically harm you. The most important things in life are your health and peace of mind. If something is compromising either of those, then you're better off without it. Start by ejecting unnecessary burdens from your life so you can simplify it. Make the necessary changes. Practicing daily meditation will also help you to control your mind and thoughts.
"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."
- Friederich Nietzsche
"Men have been taught that it is a virtue to agree with others. But the creator is the man who disagrees. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to swim with the current. But the creator is the man who goes against the current. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to stand together. But the creator is the man who stands alone."
- Ayn Rand
To find or create an alternative lifestyle from the
"slave vs. bum" dichotomy requires the ability to think outside the
box, a higher level of awareness, a desire to not conform, an inclination to be
a contrarian, and the courage and fearlessness to take risks and venture into
"unsafe" territory. A minority of people do
find alternate paths that work for them, but most don't, because it takes a
certain type of consciousness and intent that most people are not conditioned
Just remember this: You don't have to accept it when you are told that you must give up your dreams and passions in order to live in a practical world - for without your dreams and passions, your life is rendered meaningless and you can't live true to yourself.
you transcend the fear consciousness you've been conditioned with, you will
become much freer and be on a different level of consciousness that will allow
the "law of attraction" to manifest changes in your life in accord with your
inner transformation. By conquering fear, you begin living in a world of
possibilities rather than limitations, and you allow a huge expansion of
possibilities to come into your life. Only then will you be in a
state of consciousness which will allow you to create your own reality.
And that's the biggest lesson I wish to impart to you.
"They must find it difficult...those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority."
- Gerald Massey
Remembering this will keep your mind free from brainwashing and mind control. So take back your sovereignty, and start living in love, passion and awareness as a sovereign being. A new world of possibilities and adventures await you.
"Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking."
- Ayn Rand
To close, I'd like to share an inspiring quote by Marianne Williamson:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
