“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it – always.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Everywhere I look I see lies.
I see magazines lying to little kids about what Real Men and Women Are. I see the News media lying to middle-class white people about what’s going on in the world. I see grown adults lying to little children about everything you can imagine.
I see lies about the government. Lies about terrorism. Lies about food, drugs and alcohol. Lies about Muslims. Lies about Japan. Lies about Marijuana.
There are lies about money. Lies about where our money comes from. Lies about the economy. Lies about religion, and lies about atheism. Lies about the Left, and lies about the Right; lies about extremists, anarchists, libertarians, independents and I-don’t-give-a-fxcks.
There are lies about oil. Lies about the environment. And lies about the weather. Lies about technology, and lies about nature. Lies about animals. Lies about knowledge. And intelligence. And lies like “everybody’s stupid.”
There are lies about gender roles, and lies about sexuality. There are lies about What Matters, and lies about Love. There are lies about human nature. Lies about beauty and peace and satisfaction and happiness; lies about mental illness and lies about sanity. Lies about what is normal. Lies about consciousness. Lies about what we are capable of and what we aren’t capable of.
It’s all lies, and it’s all a distraction. YOU are the author of your story. You ARE in charge of your life. You CAN do great, amazing things – if only you set your mind to it.
You can change the World. YOU can CHANGE the WORLD. Most people don’t want to accept this, because that would mean they’d actually have to do something. It means breaking free of the matrix that has been set up to keep our minds imprisoned, and we’ve gotten pretty comfortable there.
But I promise you the TRUTH is so much more exciting, intriguing, and satisfying than anything could be over in that comfort zone of lies. Our hearts are longing for truth, and once they catch a glimpse of it, the game is over. The matrix will no longer satisfy.
People are desperate for something more Real than this materialistic existence we’ve somehow confused with Life. Don’t let the lies fool you! We aren’t all happy consumers, and we’re beginning to see that we have the power to change things. The house of lies is crumbling, and things are changing.
Ignorance won’t always be bliss. All these lies won’t always be “Truth.”
We are learning. We are opening our eyes.
There’s a reason I put this in the title of my page — we are Evolving. (;
