Existing vs. LivingsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #life4 years ago

Humans have a choice to how they want to live their lives.

Humans can choose to EXIST or they can choose to LIVE!

But in order to make this choice wisely, we have to know the difference between the two.

When a human merely EXISTS, they are just "there". They run the hamster wheel, going to work, paying their taxes, watching their sports, soap operas, or reality shows, going to their supermarkets to buy their chemically laced food processed by multi-national corporations who parasitically lives off of the consumer in order to greatly grow their profits.

They stare into their smart phones (which makes you even dumber, just look around you and you will see this first hand), they allow corrupt "puppeticians" to plan every facet of their life. They don't take the time to critically think about the possibility that we have lost our way and are walking into our destruction.

And those who have the courage to point this out are labeled as an outcast or a dissident.

If you are merely EXISTING, you might as well be one of those walkers from The Walking Dead.

For someone who is just merely EXISTING, life just becomes about survival and living an illusory reality in order to impress people who you don't know or like. And in return, those same people most likely could care less about the illusion that you push out in order to boost your ego.

THIS IS HOW WE BEEN LIVING FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS!

Yet we still haven't learned. All we have been doing as humans for all this time is EXISTING. So now it's time to break the cycle of existing and enter a new paradigm. A new age. A new cycle. The cycle of LIVING.

So how do we make the transition from EXISTING to LIVING?

Well first and foremost, STOP LETTING THE WORLD STAGE INFLUENCE YOUR THINKING.

The world stage is the media, the government, the "experts" in science, economics, and medicine, and even your own family and friends.

Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is within YOU! So the second you look to the world stage for your answers, YOU ARE MERELY EXISTING! And on top of that, you are existing for an illusion.

And for those who are intellectually challenged and pretty much dense: ILLUSIONS ARE NOT REAL. And if this world is nothing more than an illusion. THIS IS NOT REAL. BECAUSE IT IS OUTSIDE OF YOU.

Ponder on something for a minute:

Where do your five senses come from? WITHIN YOUR MIND! All five senses are in your mind. WITHIN YOU. Well ain't that a flip!

So what you see, hear, taste, smell, and touch are in the mind. Which parallels perfectly with the Hermetic Principle of Mentalism: ALL IS MIND.

So if you change your mind you can actually change the illusion.

This would work better if all of humanity would come to this realization, accept it, and then act on it.

This is also why divide and conquer is crucial to the powers that shouldn't be. The one thing they fear is humanity that "gets it" and call a truce to stop fighting each other and start helping each other. Sounds like just some lame cliche right? Well if you feel that way you will just end up stuck in the cycle of EXISTING once again.

This reality has its way of showing humanity EXACTLY where they are headed due to their actions/inactions. When humanity EXISTS (lives unconsciously), the world deteriorates around them. And the more that they keep just EXISTING, their world is over. Again, just take a look around you if you don't believe me.

Now when humanity LIVES, they start to value each and every human being as an extension of themselves and worthy of the same love and respect that they would give themselves.

They will be grateful for all the things they do have (a comfortable home, decent food to eat, loving family and friends, the ability to travel (whether in a car or on foot), they can take the time to admire the sunshine or the cool breeze or the beauty in nature.

They can realize that we as a species have everything we need and that there is no need to look to corporations who use the money they make from the consumer to greatly increase their power.

THIS IS WHAT EMPIRES DO! AND IF HUMANITY DOESN'T COME TO REALIZE THIS, IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN AND AGAIN.

So the human species cannot say that they have no choice. That's a weak excuse. The choice has always been there. Humanity has just "passed the buck" so they wouldn't have to accept the responsibility so that they can say in the end that it wasn't their fault and they just wanted to be "left alone".

The question is: AFTER ALL THIS TIME OF EMPIRE RULE, WILL HUMANITY FINALLY WAKE UP AND CHOOSE EXISTING OVER LIVING?

TIME IS SHORT!!
