We Have Been Lied To

We have been fed a bill of goods. Told that we can be whatever it is we want to be.  Told to believe that as long as we work hard and make good choices that what ever life we choose can be manifested into our reality. 

We have been lied to.  Because we have been sold someone else’s dream. We have been given someone else’s life and told to make it our own. We have been indoctrinated into the belief that we want riches and fame and material wealth, that this alone will save us. We have been sold the lies that we will be happy once we win the race that we never signed up for but that was forced upon us. We have been forced to compete with one another under the pretense that, “it’s just the way things work.” And we wonder why we hate each other.

We wonder why we are at each others throats fighting for someone else’s prize. A prize we will never see and one that we could never take with us. 

We do not have to be subject to these laws enforced upon us by society.

Becoming whatever we want has replaced Becoming who we are. Who we are is deluded and hoodwinked. We want the things we are told to want. We strive for the success that we are told is success and we die on the cross that we are told to die on.

I ask us all to wake up. To see the devil masquerading as a savior. Wake up and stop pretending to be who society, the world wants you to be. Discover who you are and be who you are. Regardless of the fear and vitriol that may be spewed by others.

Who you are is all you ever needed to be. Who you are is a magnificent flower waiting to blossom but told to do it on your lunch break. Throw off the shackles of this world the trappings of success and find out how beautiful and neccessary you are, just as you are.

I ask this of you as I ask it of myself. Unseat the master of your mind and take back control. Look deep with in underneath the thousand forms of delusion and find out who you truly are.

God bless. Its time to fight back.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
