ignorance isn't always bliss...
i've been thoroughly enjoying some quality time watching conspiracy theory type documentaries these days... it's got my reality shifting more and more towards a new set of beliefs... my shifting reality will not change my morals or morality, but it will change the way i go about my life... i will not walk around scared of everything... i will not walk around with a blindfold on... i will not be controlled over what i am told... my life has a meaning beyond what the media and our society tells me my purpose is... i used to be a big believer that ignorance is bliss... but when there are hidden truths out there, why not discover/acknowledge them? this is a part of our existence i do not understand. the simple fact that we call anti-socialized perspectives of our reality "conspiracy theories" is a problem in itself... this phrase is what keeps us following the lies... seeing things a different way shouldn't be labeled as "screwing up our way of life"... some people see through the lies and bullshit... some people understand the true meaning of life... the meaning of life isn't lavish or extravagant... it's simple and community-oriented... but the way we are controlled and socialized through the media and public schooling keeps us blind-folded to alternative lifestyles... deviating from the norm is frowned upon in more ways than just being perceived as "weird"... society needs to accept the fact that there isn't one way to do anything. we are constantly living our lives' out by following the "right way"... abiding by the rules, not breaking the law, afraid of making a mistake... some people make more mistakes and break more rules than others, but those people are made examples of... the rest of us stay in line and are content that way... i understand this feeling... it's safe... when we sit back and let our lives' play out the "right way", there isn't much turmoil... i started questioning this "right way" when i started realizing "NO SKATEBOARDING" was just a suggestion... then it hit me... it's all a suggestion. skateboarding has given and ingrained an anti-follower mentality... since skateboarding took over my brainwaves and perspectives, i have become a pioneer... i no longer make mindless decisions... my actions are conscious, constructive, and purposeful... i am hoping to forge a new, unfiltered path... i asked my wife, "if you could know the truth behind the purpose of everything, would you want to know it?" she responded with, "no"... i was not mad at her... i understand why she wouldn't want to know because we live a good life, and you don't need to fix something that isn't broken.. but i believe that is a selfish response... many other people in our society are held down by the system that is the US government... there is a way to fix education, debt after college, health care coverage, healthier/affordable food, pollution, etc... it's by coming together and working together... i've seen, firsthand, the awesome shit that can happen when people work together... i know the power we all harness, but hold back because of the self-created fear we feel... the people that use their power intend to keep it, and they will do whatever it takes to get more and maintain control over the fearful... i see now why the term "ignorance is bliss" resonates so loudly in people's heads... the thought of their entire life being something other than what they thought it was is a scary realization... we all meet the end at one point or another, right? what will you have to show for when you're fading away in a hospital bed? people usually feel empty at the end... fill your life with purpose... purpose means (to me) helpful, constructive, compassionate, conscious, selfless acts of goodness... make the best decision that will positively affect the most people it can... let's change the world, one purposeful decision at a time... ignorance is ignorance... open your mind and world. peace and noLove...
