Unlearning To Learn
Growing up I was taught that there was only one way to everything. I was taught that mental and emotional abuse was normal. I was taught that education is the only way to life. I was taught that eating meat is normal. I was taught a lot of things and it wasn't until 2015 when I started seeing things for how they actually are. I was becoming aware but it really wasn't until 2016 when the stuff I learned, changed me.. mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically.
Don't get it twisted though, I'm still unlearning to learn.
To whoever is reading this, I hope you know that education keeps you in a box. Education is ruled by a bourgeois propaganda. Education does not want you to think. Education wants you in a box. The way it is set up has been taught for so many years and I'm sure they (the system) thought "if we teach these to people, if we say this to people, they often hear it so much that they start to believe it." That's the sad truth.
Why is that when someone fights, they get suspended?
Why can't we teach humans to be humane? Why don't we try a meditation alternative and get people to love and be kind?
Why are we taught that sex is more than love?
Why is it cool to not care? Why are we taught that being different is wrong?
Why is it that we got to school for 12 years and if we fail a test, we basically become a failure.
WHY ARE WE BEING TAUGHT THINGS THAT WILL NOT MATTER? You see my point. And if you don't, I'm sorry you can't see OR think that deep but eventually you will. That's in your own time. I'm just trying to make you expand.
When I look back at how naive I use to be, I feel so bad. I fell for their game. I never questioned anything but now... man. It's a different story. It's seriously impossible to unknow the know.
I went a few months just sad and miserable because I'm seeing the world for how it finally is. All I could ask is why? What is good about seeing people die? What is good about seeing people go into war? Why the fuck are you spending billions of dollars on people to fight? You're fighting people that has never DIRECTLY hurt you?! Never harmed you in any way. Yet... we still got homeless people on the streets. We rather pay for hate than use it for the benefit of someone else's life. Say that out loud.
This is why I'm learning to not love money because all you're going to have is a nice car, nice home, nice clothes but where is your heart at? Will your problems be solved? Yes I'm sure it will benefit but it goes deeper than just materialistic items.
You can't buy love. You can't buy friendships. You can't buy a genuine person. You can't buy family. Notice how all of that comes from within? And what is within you? LOVE. We are taught to grow apart from that.. all the scrutiny, hype, gossip just keeps you distracted. It makes you grow apart from who you really are. It's okay. I was once there. But I'm here now. I'm aware now. You just have to want to learn and adapt.
Let's change the way we live. Let's change the way we love. Let's change the way we treat each other.
Be different. Don't be afraid to stand out. Don't be afraid to change.
Before anything, just be a good person and make your heart the prettiest thing about you because honestly, we need that more than ever right now.
