Think about it. The world around us has been carefully crafted as an illusion to keep us from realizing the truth.
Illusion is built on a phony belief system
We are taught to believe that sickness is inevitable, and that
doctors can cure us of that sickness using drugs concocted in a lab. For
a price. There is always a price.
We are taught to hate certain people because of their beliefs, the
color of their skin, their gender, height, weight, the way that they
walk, the way they talk, and the way that they look.
We are taught that we need to have certain things to be happy. That
material wealth will make us better than our neighbors and deserving of
We are taught that there is only one way to win, and that is to beat the other person.
We live in a bubble, surrounded by biases that form our reality. And
it is a cage. The bars consist of thoughts designed to enslave us to
corporations that relentlessly suck the life blood out of us. Thoughts
that keep us docile and happy in our confinement. We are drugged by the
media, lied to by fancy politicians and those who would be friends,
experimented on by war-mongers and chemical companies, then thrown to
the wolves when we try to fight back.
We are trained to be obedient consumers.
We are trained to never question authority and to toe the party line.
And we willingly comply, because if we don’t we won’t receive our next
Woof! I’m a good little doggie. May I please have a bone?
A love for the truth is built on breaking free from that belief system
Breaking free starts with one bar in the cage. The first lie that is
discovered and dismantled. And the illusion starts unraveling.
The real shocker is just how deep the lies go. How fully entrenched
our world is in lies, deceit, trickery, greed and outright malice. A
tangled web of false beliefs that bind us, undone by one strand of
truth, leading to another, to another, until the cage entrapping us is
all but transparent.
Until we commit to finding and hanging onto that which is true, we
live in a constant state of psychosis, unable to recognize the truth if
it ran up, bit us on the arse, and trampled us with all four feet. We
remain happily ignorant. And controlled. And powerless to escape the
If we are determined to break free, then we must stand. To declare
the truth that we find, and live by it. To refuse to compromise
integrity, self esteem, honor, compassion and life for a temporary fix
Woof! I’m a dog that has found the stash and won’t settle for your handouts anymore.
And it’s contagious. The truth, that is. It is the thread that holds
all of creation together. It is the mother ship, the standard, the crown
jewel. It will never let you down because it is the firm foundation.
There is no debating the truth. There is no compromising with it. The
truth is the truth. Lies bounce off of it, ineffective. It is the one
and only thing we can count on. Everything else is shifting sand.
Everything else is the lie. The cage. The entrapment. And once you
commit to the truth, there is no going back.
Let freedom ring.
