is but a dream within a dream."
Edgar Allen Poe
All the intelligence, belief and wisdom in the world will not change this truth.
The human race has prided itself on how many people, circumstances and outcomes it can control and manipulate to convey its synthetic power and conceal its deepest insecurities.
All that shall remain of it is the watermark of its self-righteousness, insatiable appetites, veiled malice and egocentric conquests.
Generations upon generations of human beings have come and gone, born with the greatest promise and buried with the greatest failure. A defeat most will not choose to acknowledge or claim.
Yet, we are constantly seduced by our ego's incessant agenda.
Our lives are truly not about helping others. They aren't even about helping our families or ourselves. They are about enabling an elusive network of sociopaths a very few are willing to identify, engage or oppose.
The tragedy is that we don't even know
or care enough about inequality and injustice to make a difference.
In our hearts and souls we know our potential and ability. Yet, we lean upon our shortcomings and reservations to prevent ourselves from creating and living our destiny.
Mediocrity and insecurity seals the fate of our ordinary and meaningless suffrage.
No matter how we may spin our incomplete
and unfulfilled lives with financial, educational or religious
means, they are still a lie.
Many live with these conditions never knowing or understanding their dysfunctional nature and influence. Few are willing, open or authentic enough to identify and manage them. Even fewer are willing to transform them into opportunities to serve instead of being enslaved.
This elaborate Matrix of personal weakness and limitation festers in the presence of human conceit, denial, doubt, cognitive dissonance, self-righteousness and fear. They are all qualities that originate exclusively from the dark side of our ego.
We abide within a three-dimensional existence living a two-dimensional experience. What and how we identify and adopt as reality further strengthens the hold our ego has over us. It is a lifestyle that has been imposed upon us by a system of calculated progression, manufactured results, manipulated dynamics and engineered acquiescence.
We are all caught in a spider web of
deception. The very nature of the reality in which we exist is
simply not conducive to truth, wisdom, community and above all else
We cower in the dark waiting for a chance that will never come. When it does arrive, it is merely a mirage of opportunity and success that leaves us empty and unfulfilled. We are disassociated with ourselves and our truth, passion, love and destiny.
When we are presented with opportunity, we perceive it as a fleeting dream or an exodus from the "almighty" reality.
Our reliance upon the common and and familiar
structures of mortal life, prevents any and all true evolution and
expression we may ever experience.
Our life is severely impaired by our archaic five senses. These expressions of our existence are the compass of our experience.
They can also be the greatest diversions and inhibitors of our perception. As soon as we open our eyes, the alluring authority of visual reality compromises the balance between our senses.
Our fascination and reliance upon sight instantly shifts our focus and awareness from a multi-dimensional possibility to a two-dimensional sentence. Our "blind" acceptance of reality confines us within our own invisible prison.
We are profoundly dependent upon what we see. We choose to believe more effortlessly and absolutely in what is visible than what is felt or intuited. It deceives us with our own apathy, criticism, denial, selfishness and opposition.
All that we yearn to achieve in our lives is surrendered when we don't choose to create or experience our lives to their fullest potential. The greatest weakness the human race believes to be its greatest strength is its mutual acceptance that life is measured by what we receive, not what we give.
The balance between our body, mind and heart creates the three-dimensional equilibrium necessary to generate the appropriate focus, energy and expression to relate with our intuition. Our intuition is the "lightening" bolt that connects us with our soul.
Only when we have attained this four
dimensional, electromagnetic nexus within are we able to live in
union with the universe.
Because of its inclinations toward control and manipulation, humanity continues to exist within the darkness of its own conditioned intelligence, devoted compliance and unbridled insecurity.
The human race is more willing to
relinquish its personal power to authority than stand for and in its
own. Personal power has become an endangered human expression. The
daunting fear of responsibility that seemingly accompanies its
ownership has not just made it nearly unattainable; it has rendered
More often than not, our point of view is adopted instead of earned. Not just because we would choose to see it erroneously out of our apprehension for what "may" be true. It is mostly because we live in a false world, governed by false people with false intentions to gain false supremacy for false means.
When we choose to establish and live our
truth, it is a lonely, challenging and unfulfilling experience that
yields very little "true" enlightenment in the "real" world.
Freedom will never be found in becoming a pawn upon the chessboard of society. It is claimed in our dedication to truly live, love and be. We must break our program and transcend the illusion in which we are all cast.
Only when we read between the lines of
reality will our truth be found. Only then will we able to write our
own lives. Only then will we be able to create the truth we are
destined to be.
