“You don’t have a life!”
“You’re missing out dear!”
“You need to have some fun!”
These are statements I am used to hearing. Why? Because what society does is waking up in the morning, getting ready for work or school, working or being at school, going home, having dinner, chatting with friends or family, possibly going out/dating or reading a book, watching TV, sleeping. We don’t spend time adding value to ourselves, developing ideas to solve societal problems, or pursuing our purposes.
Yes, we see, but we don’t notice. We are used to mediocrity. We don’t live significant lives. Like robots. Mere biomasses. And we believe this is the way it should be – because, everybody lives like that! True, most people do live their lives like that and are happy. There may be those who travel here and there, those who can work remotely, those who have more freedom than others. Still, we are not really free; we live life the way it is predicted to us.
What am I talking about?
I am talking about consciousness. What is consciousness? It is said that consciousness is “the state of being aware of and responsive to one’s surroundings.” Please read that sentence again. It seems logical, right? And you’ve probably heard it before or could have come up with that definition yourself. Most of us will probably say yes, I do live like that. I live consciously, I live my life the way I want. We believe, we are independent, capable of creating our selves, our lives.
Unfortunately, this is a huge deception and we are totally unaware of it. Note that this is not an illuminati-new-world-order-odd-mindfulness propaganda. This is about our minds and the fact that we do not use them. Most people in the world live in mediocrity which is equal to unconscious living. We do what everyone else does since “that is how it is”. We are biomasses. We don’t think or question. If you dare to think differently – to think out of the box and challenge the status quo – you will be ridiculed or laughed at.
Well, history teaches us that those who did think out of the box, those who lived conscious lives, were those who made the latter – those who made history. Ordinary people like you and me. Hence, I choose to be among those who make history, I choose to use my consciousness, I choose to be a History Maker. Laugh at me, ridicule me, call me names. While everyone else has “fun”, I will be in charge.
Keep in mind: Most of the problems in life exist because of two reasons: We either act without thinking, or we think without acting. To the degree that you think, to that degree you are human. Join me at the top!
