Do you realize how amazing you are as a human being? The capability of your body, the capacity of your mind and depth of your human potential are beyond what most of us can yet imagine. To illustrate just one example of this, I invite you to watch a short video entitled Never Die Easy, which features a glimpse into the life of Dag Aabye. When we begin to harness this potential, courage and freedom, we begin to liberate ourselves. But to harness this potential we first must take responsibility for our mind. This means learning to manage and master it so that it is not prone to being infected and impacted by fear and the self-serving agendas of others that limit and sabotage our wellbeing.
Unfortunately, as things stand, the workings of our society are set up to weaken, rather than strengthen our mind. No part of society has been spared from trying to manipulate us in order to get a desired outcome that will either increase profits, the illusion of separation, fear or all of the above. The solution however, is not to fight against this — this is what is — human psychology is very fragile and an untrained mind is one of the easiest things to manipulate.
The solution instead is to take back your mind by awakening and training it into higher and higher states of conscious awareness. Enlightened beings have been trying to point us to this since recorded history, as we know it, but it requires courage and work that today, unfortunately very few people are interested in doing. You must continually learn the landscape of your own mind, face all of its shadows, and create yourself and your life experience from the inside out, not from the outside in, if you want to live as a liberated being.
Suffice to say, you are not going to take back your mind by “following the status quo” — doing, being, working, eating, acting and interacting based on the perceived “normal” out there, which is one of the biggest illusions of them all. This does not mean that you need to become some rebel or live on the fringes of society, rather you must learn how to live authentically and in alignment with yourself first and foremost. After all, the easiest people to control are those who are trying to fit in.
Thank you to Mohammed Abbasi for illustrating these words, which I shared in a past post, with such raw clarity to bring awareness to the deep state of unconscious thought, habitual action and reaction that most people on Earth operate from.
