A Brighter Tomorrow

The one thing I do like about conspiracy theorists is that they’re passionate…

Generally off their rocker, but boy do they believe in the cause!

I’m not here to tell you about some secret underground society is financially enslaving us for the benefit of the upper echelon–that’s not the type of energy I’m into spreading…

Is it true? Who knows. But one of the core beliefs I hold is that I still have an able body and a purpose, and regardless of the circumstance, I will do what I’m here to do.

In this case, what I’m here to do is offer hope.

That while we may be in flux as a world right now, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow.

A brighter today even.

The greatest challenge we face lies within us.  The limits we set, the boundaries we live by–rational or not.  Steven Pressfield labels this force “resistance” in his book, which I HIGHLY recommend.

We have the power, right now, in this moment, to make a decision to finally do that one thing that we know we’ve been called to do since we were put on this earth.

It’s different for everyone, so I can’t, and won’t tell you what that is for you–though I doubt you’ll need much help finding out what it is.  You hear it calling every day, don’t you?

The optimist in my wants to believe that when we, as a people, shift our consciousness and focus on progressing–when we beat resistance and do that thing we know we ought to do–we will advance as a society.

And this is despite whether or not we’re in financial slavery, or whether or not chem trails are real…

I’ll go as far to say that it doesn’t matter who’s in office–democrat, republican, independent.

The changing of circumstances is an illusion.

The power is within each one of us.

It is the power to make a choice.  To choose to be disciplined and do your work.

Make your contribution to the world so that we all may benefit.

If we can all keep the focus within, and truly strive to grow on the micro level, it will start to make macro results.

What Are They Teaching Us?!?

Sure, we’re given the sciences, math, we’re taught to read and write, and this is all great.  But what are we really learning in school?

Taking a step back, I first observe an absolute focus on being in your seat, ready to do your work at exactly X o’clock, and you can bet your tardies will be counted!

When you arrive, be prepared, and don’t you dare talk to your neighbor, right?  Remember?  Disruptions aren’t allowed, some behaviors won’t be tolerated.

While I do subscribe to the idea that one should certainly maintain a level of discipline, including punctuality, doesn’t it seem like we’re being trained to show up on the assembly line, ready to tune our bodies in and our minds out?  Ready to listen and absorb all orders given to us?

If you don’t talk to your neighbor in today’s business world, you’re out of business!

So what are we really teaching here?

Don’t get me wrong, a lot of our ancestors have made a great living mastering this model, and in some cases, it may still be alive today.  But the promise of going to college to get a good job that you’ll spend 35 years at and retire with a great pension are over!

We’re taught the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic, which help us navigate life; however, we don’t focus on two HUGE areas, and I think it’s because, in all honesty, we just don’t understand them.  These areas are:

  • Self Management
    • We’re thrown into this world with this gnarly meat wagon we call a body and this super-computer of a mind we don’t understand.  We self-medicate and self-mutilate trying to find answers, and often never do.
  • Money Management
    • Taking a look at our own government we can see what a total lack of discipline we’re being taught in a fiscal sense.  Money is the new secret.  Our smartest don’t grow up to be scientists and researchers anymore, the study the financial markets and find ways to exploit them for much more money.

For too long I’ve felt suspicious of what skills we’re providing on a mass scale in this country.

And for what reason.

I certainly don’t want to go “full out chem-trail on you”, but I don’t know if I necessarily trust the world around me like I once did.

What do you think?
