15 Lessons In Self-Evaluation & Finding Your Purpose"
Each of us has our own story. Some more bright than others, some more
amusing and intriguing, and some laced with sadness and abuse. Through
various outlets, we can each find our sunshine and solace.
One of our favourite past times: criticizing the actions of others. We are all guilty of this, to some degree. Via comparison, whether it is moral or monetary, we rate one another according to our position, on what I like to refer to as the “SOCIETY SCALE.”
Let’s take a step back into time, shall we? The history of the frailty of the human mind is, on one hand, amusing, while on the other hand, alarming, since we are governed by our own kind. The following chapter offers a few entertaining and almost embarrassing illustrations.
THE SOCIETY SCALE
“Monkey see, Monkey do.”
SOCIETY SCALE announces, “Umm, ok, people. We double-checked and
kinda made a little ‘boo-boo’ there…the earth is now…round!”
SOCIETY SCALE says, “Christopher Columbus has discovered a
SOCIETY SCALE corrects, “Ok, folks. We thought long and hard about
this. He couldn’t have discovered a place, that was already inhabited,
SOCIETY SCALE says, “All men are equal! Justice for all!”
SOCIETY SCALE mumbles, “Now wait a minute. All men may be equal, but you people can’t have the same privileges in society. That’s not gonna be a problem, is it? Better not be.”
What has happened, is that we as a people have been artfully dissected
and re-programmed. We do not realise how our lives and its contents are
highly influenced and manipulated by society and its many rigid guidelines.
It is society that dictates and manipulates our choices, and it is society
that castigates those who dare to defy the rules enforced. We are conditioned
via many mediums (television, radio, advertisements, films, literature)
which subsequently direct and control every component in our lives: What,
Where and How. Society tells us what, where, when and how to buy, study,
live, love, think…the list is infinite.
We are now faced with an incredible challenge, due to the severely harmful effects of subliminal programming. What kind of world are we presenting to our children? A world ridden with mental corruption, sexual obsession, drug addiction, material infatuation, as well as racial and religious warfare? Oh no? Read the newspapers, watch the popular television shows, cartoons, music videos, advertisements, or read the literature, the magazines, ‘surf’ the Internet…take your pick. We can no longer deny it. We have been infected. Moral decay has successfully contaminated our population, and we’re blindly consuming every form of refuse they feed us. I think we’re all aware of who ‘they’ are.
LIKE SHEEP WE FOLLOW THE SHEEP WHO LEAD.
The Caribbean presents to you, a gifted spirit…Indra, who now goes SOLO.
