From the moment your born, from your very first breath – two timers are set and begin your countdown. (1) Time till death (2) How long you carry on believing that ignorance is bliss.
I would like to believe that all humans start out in life as good people. Circumstances, environments and influences can quickly change that. Maybe Im being delusional and expect too much from people. Perhaps people are born with terrible tendencies?
As far as I know, there is no way to control time. Which leaves us with ignorance.
Have you ever wondered where you “fit in” or whats the purpose of all this thing called life? If you never wondered about these things, then your better off reading something else. You wont understand what Im about to share.
In a way, we are all conditioned to behave in particular ways. From the moment you begin your academic life – your being conditioned in to behaving and thinking in certain ways. And as time goes on – you quickly forget how to think for yourself and accept what is being told to you as the truth. After all, all humans are good at the core…. right?
The conditioning of how we think and what we think is being implanted, very carefully, deep inside. We are lead to believe that certain things must be in our lives in order to be accepted and admired by others.
TV, Radio, Tablets, smartphones – a continuous bombardment of information that is carefully chipping away at our very core as individuals. Our ability to use our intelligence and practical thinking is always under pressure.
If we are able to accept everything that is told to us as truth, without us actually seeing with our own eyes, we are no less robots than the ones currently being developed by China. They have already deployed some robots to work alongside humans. [read MIT article]
It is human nature to be inquisitive, but by enduring the endless bombardment of information from multiple sources and for the need to feel accepted, we question ourselves. Others tell us that there is something wrong with us if we think differently to the masses. But why?
I grew up in the era of Micheal Jackson. His music was a massive influence on the whole world and an inspiration to many of todays stars. Jackson used music to try and tell us about the need to be self-thinking, not to listen to the masses and for each of us to make a difference in the world – by opening our eyes.
He was ridiculed, emotionally abused and was called a freak by the media. Not loosing popularity by being branded a freak, he was then accused of child perversion, which almost destroyed the guy.
We have to be smarter. We must stop, look at ourselves and ask “what do I think, am I being honest TO MYSELF”.
Our parents have always told us to think for ourselves and to not let anyone tell you “you can’t do it”. Never accept being bullied in to any situation and always remain honest and truthful. So what went wrong?…
In my opinion – our parents and grandparents did not have the whole world in their pockets (smartphones). They had the ability to think for themselves and come up with their own conclusions on things. We are quickly loosing our ability to do one of the most important things that is given to us – use our brains.
Scientists have always said that we can only access a certain amount of our brains capacity. That means, we have a lot of untapped resources up their. Time we began to use what we can and remain inquisitive about what we are being told “is good for us”.
You might be very surprised in what you find out!
