One who has not realised that the world is not what one has, for long, thought it is, still has a long way to go and a lot to learn. It must also be stated right from the onset that for that learning to happen, one must take a different kind of learning. This may mean absconding from the usual traditional ways of learning, which have already led them into a manmade and superficial path just for a while, and experience a different mental experience.
Truth is that formal education or academia, as much as it is revered and celebrated, is not the ultimate way of learning. On top of that, the most and basic skills are not even part of the formal education system or, if they are, are usually taught later in life, which may, in most cases, even turn out to be a little too late. These lessons are often shared in retrospect as mistakes or things which one wished they knew when they were younger.
The most interesting part, though, is that even after a whole lot of lessons in retrospection are publicly and freely shared, the following generation always repeats the same mistakes. It is as if one would want to learn for themselves from experience than taking lessons from those who came before in order not to repeat the same horrible mistakes.
There is no doubt, for those who have had the ears to hear and the eyes to see, that the world is not what it is said to be. That is not to mention the many deceptive ways devised ages ago to, for a lack of a better word, harvest human energy. This is where the names of Edward Barneys, Josef Goebbels and Sigmund Freud would become even more noticeable.
Since time immemorial, every discovery that can significantly transform humanity and create a heaven on earth gets shoved under the carpet, or twisted to deceive the masses for the benefit of the few. Real science is twisted, and the masses get presented only with the crumbs, while the reality of it gets used by the few for personal interests and control.
It is sad to realise that the reality one lives is not real, but predetermined. One is given the impression that they have options to choose from, but the matter of fact is that even those choices were also chosen for them. In this instance, one is basically being given nothing but the illusion of choice. It is for the same premise that one gets distracted from the realisation of their natural and innate power through status and prestige. This is achieved by placing certain individuals on a social pedestal, and bestowing them with some level of “power”. In this case, the individual, in revering and celebrating another of their kind, is made to feel and believe that they are less smart, less important, and not intelligent enough to think for themselves and make conclusions. In this case, one is compelled to accept and take the expert’s stance, even when every cell in their bone instinctively raises an alarm.
Therefore, in a deceptive world, where lies and deception have become the truth, it is every individual’s duty to enhance their natural tools. It is the day and time when self-education and questioning about everything, complemented by natural instincts and intuition, cements one’s disposition. For these are the tools with which one can eventually look at the world through a filter of the highest level of discernment. For this is the most necessary position that gives one the ability to navigate through the world of lies and deception without any turbulence on a flight to their highest purpose.
