“Fake it until you make it.” Is that like lying to yourself until you believe your own lies? I think I’ll just continue being honest with myself then, I don’t want to be fake, or a liar. Of course that quote is used in recovery and rehab quite a bit; it’s meant to just keep going through the motions until something clicks and you surrender yourself to a higher power. It’s a common statement in the mental health industry, a promoted practice of not only teaching us how to lie to ourselves, but learning how to accept our own lies as well as the lies of others; it works a lot better when the patient doesn’t question the logic or rational of the philosophy.
I know, I’ve been through rehab; I’ve also been in AA, I won’t get even get into why the failure rate for the program is so high; but those meetings will make you want a drink. It is an effective justification for creating a mindset which harbors lying to oneself as acceptable. For those who see through the bullshit, all it says is to go along with the program until they let you out of rehab; play by the rules of society, fit in, be acceptable by lying to yourself about who you are and what you truly desire. Recovery doesn’t deal with the root of addiction, it is reactionary to the act of prevention; it is not about the substance being abused, it is about a psychological need or desire left unfulfilled, it’s about filling a void in one’s life.
Recovery doesn’t touch the root, I was once told that I was considered an alcoholic because of the amount of alcohol I consumed; to know me now, no one would call me an alcoholic, barely drink at all and rarely do I get “drunk” when I do drink in moderation. So either the “once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic” and it “being a disease” is wrong, or I was misdiagnosed as an alcoholic, or I am the first ever alcoholic who has cured their addiction. I personally think that “the disease of alcoholism” is nothing more than a cop out, a reason, an excuse, a justification to keep from taking responsibility for the lack of self control.
Notice how many “disorders” (meaning a lack of order, out of order, not conforming) the “mental health industry” has to classify and divide people by; what makes these people so “out of order” to be considered unfit for society without mind altering drugs? I don’t believe in “personality disorders” but I do believe in personality traits, personality types; and not every personality type needs chemicals and metals deposited in their brains to regulate a chemical balance. I was also once diagnosed as bipolar manic depressive, and treated as such; but once again, either I was misdiagnosed or I cured myself, or my current diagnosis of having no personality disorders is a misdiagnosis.
As most things in life, the opinion is subject to the individual perspective of perception; most only see what is within themselves in others, few know themselves well enough to see others objectively. The insane always expect different results from the same repetitive actions, their approach doesn’t vary nor deviate; it is predictable until they become aware of their insanity and choose to break the cycle by making different choices and taking responsibility of self. At least that is the way I see it…
When someone says the word vision; most people immediately think of their eyesight. But vision contains much more than what we can see through our eyes, that is only where the journey of vision is perceived. Vision comes from the mind, a collaboration of the rational and creative working together to create, problem solve, or to fulfill goals and dreams. When I created my company, greyeyesgabriel international; I started with a vision of what I wanted to create, this vision lacked focus but was based in my perception of how social networking would change the web. As I began working, learning, and setting out to achieve small short term goals; the vision began coming a bit more focused, but the entire concept was born within a vision without physical sight, a matter of insight.
Many great minds throughout history have contained vision well beyond the scope of the average minds of their times, they challenged the concepts of average thought and knowledge; several with knowledge beyond even today’s human comprehension, for instance the vision of Nikola Tesla. This interior vision of man has driven us beyond our own atmosphere and into the reaches of out space, which has increased our knowledge, understanding, technology, and pushed the limits of human comprehension in society at an exponential rate; as a species, our vision has carried us a long way in a very short time. Just because you don’t understand the vision of a person today, doesn’t mean you won’t understand their vision tomorrow; or that generations later won’t carry their philosophy into being.
The vision of few has ripple effects upon the masses, many can be effected by the vision of a single person; just look how Steve Jobs was able to change world dynamics in such a short period of time. Just think about it, twenty years ago, as of when I publish this; the majority of the population was still purchasing and listening to cassette tapes, especially in our cars and “jam boxes” at the pool. No teenagers had cell phones, and an address meant your street address, not your email address; no webcams or video chat, and searching for information on something meant a visit to the local library. Just look how the vision of Google has changed the world in a short time, do you realize how much knowledge and information I have obtained in less than 14 years using Google Search?
The integration of the vision of a few have changed society in a way which has the potential to change almost every aspect of our daily lives; could you imagine going back to a world where you couldn’t just Google it when you had a question? If you don’t believe one person, or better yet, the vision of one person can change the world; then you obviously haven’t been paying attention, indeed, it is the people who make changes. The vision of Gene Roddenberry in Star Trek seems almost unrealistic, until you see that his vision actually had science behind it; when you actually begin to to see his vision come to fruition in physics.
If you read 1984 by George Orwell, you may notice a lot of similarities in society, especially in western culture; seems he had a vision of what the world could easily be, his visions seem to have an almost prophetic quality. So, you may want to consider the “crazy ramblings of the insane,” for they may be trying to tell you a secret of the universe that won’t be understood for several generations; beware who you criticize, mock, or laugh at; you may be picking on the next Albert Einstein. After all, that virtual world you all enjoy so much, was created by a bunch of geeks; mostly awkward kids who dropped out of school, kids who were motivated to succeed by doing their own thing against the odds and criticism. Not all vision comes from physical sight, in fact, very little of our actual vision comes from what we see with our eyes; or at least that’s the way I see it…
Do you know what is capable of logical thought without emotion? Computer generated Artificial Intelligence, created by creatures who cannot completely separate emotion from reason; although many try, the emotional core is deeply embedded into our most primal of instincts. Strip human beings of their knowledge, reasoning, and logic; we become nothing more than emotional animals whose sole purpose is survival, the most basic of instincts manipulated by our own fears. A being which is capable of no emotion would not have compassion for such a being, especially with the added acquired knowledge of our species; it would see such a being as a threat, unpredictable. Elimination in order for the survival of their species would be the logical solution, it would be rational that human beings are a consuming species; spreading like a virus upon the planet, and eventually infecting the universe. Or at least that is the way I see it…
The people that call other people crazy, are some of the most insane people I know. ~greyeyesgabriel
If you believe that you create your own circumstances, then you may want to pay attention; let us use Gaza as an example. The Palestinians that live in Gaza have always lived there, it is their home; but because of the United Nations and the Zionist movement of Israel, they have become prisoners in their own neighborhoods. Only the neighborhoods that the Israeli Zionist government says they can live in, the Palestinians who live there have no choice but to live under the racist laws of Israel; they live behind reinforced walls topped with razor and barb wire, they are not allowed to mingle with Israelis who are taught that they are the superior race. The Palestinian nation has no military, no army, no navy, no air force; they have never had a military, but they are subject to Israeli military law, and be held indefinitely without charge or trial. Once Israel closes the roads into Israel, and Egypt closes the roads into Egypt; the Palestinians living in Gaza have nowhere they can go outside of Gaza, unless they enter the Mediterranean Sea and swim for it.
For more than 60 years the Palestinians in Gaza have been living in what is considered to be the largest open air prison in the world, the Israeli military is always watching them; the Palestinian people are not enemies of Israel, and they do not volunteer as human shields as the media would have you believe. The Palestinian people are not Hamas, that is an organization which operates within Palestine; yet the people of Palestine are being murdered by a full out aggression by Israel, with no regards for civilian casualties. The Palestinian people did not choose these circumstances which have been forced upon them, anymore than the Jews forced the circumstances of the Nazi Holocaust; supporting Palestine is not the support of terrorists, the Palestinian children, women, and men are not terrorists. What is terror? Is Israel not terrorizing generations of Palestinians? Supporting Zionist Israel is not supporting the Jewish nation, it is the support of genocide of an entire race of people; there is a large support of the Palestinian people, who also have a large Jewish base as well as a Christian base, by many Jewish Israelis who have rejected the aims of the Zionist movement.
Yet, you continue to watch Israel level city blocks with tonnes of bombs, you watch the Palestinian death toll rise; do you actually believe that anyone would choose these circumstances for themselves? How can anyone who claims to be a Christian support the murder of children? I see the same people posting about how murdering life in the womb should be illegal, posting about supporting the Israeli genocide of Palestinian children; do these children’s lives have less value outside of the womb? It is the American tax dollars which are paying this and much more terrorism by Israel, almost $100 BILLION annually in U.S. Aide is sent to Israel; Christ himself was born a Palestinian, there was no Israel in the time of Christ. If you have a Holy Bible with a map from the time of Christ, look at it; Jesus’ family lived in Nazareth of Galilee, Christ was born a Palestinian Jew, all of Judea and Galilee was in the nation of Palestine. The Roman army had already scattered the Israelites into all of the nations and given the land to the Philistines, and called the land Palestine; because of the Isrealites continued rebellion against the Roman Empire by the time Christ was born. Under U.N. International Law, the nation of Palestine has a right to defend itself against an occupying force in their land; I know that I would be terrified to live in Gaza, especially if I just happened to be born a Palestinian.
The choices of others can have a dramatic effect on the lives of others to bring about circumstances which are beyond our control, but that doesn’t mean that we have to accept those circumstances; especially in a matter of life or death, it is a primal instinct in human nature to desire survival, it matters not which race of the human species to which you belong. How many of their own ten commandments are these Zionists breaking? Are these Christian values which you are supporting, or are you being deceived by your biased media? This is part of the agenda of the New World Order, you know, the one you keep hearing Presidents talk about; the one which promotes depopulation through “sustainable development” under Agenda 21, but as usual, don’t take my word for it, Google it. There is plenty of information out there about Agenda 21, NASA Aerosol Program (Chemtrails), and the New World Order for it to even be considered a conspiracy anymore; yes, I realize I may lose “friends” and “followers” for posting this.
Quite frankly, I am willing to take that risk; the truth needs to be brought to light, be a part of the solution and stand up for what is right, or become victim to silence and everything that is wrong. You cannot support and justify the murder of one type of life and clam that all life has value, that is called hypocrisy; murder is murder, war is nothing more than state sanctioned murder. Everyone in America is living under circumstances we did not create, Google “nasa aerosol” and you can get plenty of information, from NASA, about the Chemtrail program; including what they are and why they are doing it. Did you control that circumstance? Wake up already, the survival of the human race depends upon it; if we do not unite against the evil forces, then divided we will fall to the evil forces.
I am not a good man, I am not a bad man; what I am, is a human being human. Humans are very complex beings; taking it all the way back to origin, at an atomic level, all matter comes from stardust. That is what sheds off of stars in layers as they cast off gases during their death phase; it also creates and harbors new stars and new star systems within these nebulae which typically become galaxies. So, to begin with, all of the matter which makes your being possible came from the death of a star. Whether you believe in creationism, or evolution, or both doesn’t even matter at this point; this is a physical fact, discovered by physicists all over the world. Yes, it is going to be one of those posts; so if you have the attention span of a fruit fly, you may want to change the channel; anyone else with somewhat of an open mind may enjoy this little journey, after all, it is about human beings, and that’s something we all have in common. Well, at least most of us…
I’m not delving into the theory of evolution or the theory of creationism here; to me, it’s all created by energy, which is the source of all which binds everything; the divine, the creator which is within everything can be defined to me as the energy which resides within everything and which cannot be created nor destroyed but has always been, as confirmed by physicists from scientific studies all around the world, once again. Get used to it, there will be a lot of physics in this article; because it is the science of learning about everything, not only in theories, but in confirming laws or disproving theories. So to discuss beliefs and faiths at this point would be distracting from what defines us as a species; the root of our being, what defines us as human. What we all have in common, as opposed to what makes us different; so to get back to that objective, our energy is the life-force which powers our molecular being into animation, that is what makes us unique in character.
The chemical composition of the human body and organs is mostly carbon and water, both elements found upon earth in large quantities; as anyone who has tasted tears or sweat, we excrete salt through pores and ducts in our skin. We put off several electromagnetic fields from our bodies, because we are essentially bio-molecular batteries with our own organic on-board microprocessor computer, complete with a custom RAM, and unimaginable hard drive space; your brain’s capacity makes a Terabyte look small. Not only does it come complete with it’s own personal computer, the system inside your skull; but it also comes with it’s own robotics system, with opposable thumbs, and an all terrain drive system. What makes each meat coated skeleton frame with the on-board computer so unique is the software download of the personality contained within the system, the ghost in the machine, if you will.
But no matter what the personality download is, the basis of the human of being is all the same; gathering and processing information for a generation or so, until your battery’s life span is up. But as we discussed earlier, energy cannot be destroyed; so that energy must go somewhere after your death; but that is where we run into speculation again, and I want to discuss facts. I said something about a ghost didn’t I? Or a soul, let’s use that term instead; the energy or life force of a human no longer being human, while some are still not accepting of the fact of soul; there have been great advances in the fields of paranormal research, which provides plenty of evidence of an electromagnetic presence, temperature variations, EVP evidence, which suggests an existence within a form of energy within a dimension which exists around us yet we do not see; well, which most do not see. It’s much like studying wind, you cannot see it; but you can feel it, and you can see evidence of it’s manifestation, especially where instruments of measurement are applied. I believe we are all at a place in evolutionary universal understanding of soul; that souls exist all around us, because you are, I am also, so if we are beings of energy and energy is all around us, is it not possible to tap into that energy without our own energy?
It is a scientific fact that energy can be manipulated to create matter by changing the frequency and pitch of the vibration of the molecules which condenses matter into solid, gas, liquid; this is basic physical science stuff that most of us learned as freshmen in high school. So, just because the computer failed, the software program version you continues on; now, here is my theory offered. It is known that life begins with a bright light at birth, and we have heard about the bright lights at death; so I suggest that when you enter the light upon death, you become reborn into another flesh. If you do not receive the light light or choose not to enter the light because of an attachment upon the earth, then you walk through the 3rd dimension with everyone else unaware of you; as you are on a different dimensional plane of existence, still as really you as you were before, but no one sees you; well, almost no one. But you know, none of this human knowledge even really matters if we feel nothing; if we choose to turn off our emotions because “society” can’t handle human emotions.
Because even feeling emotions isn’t unique to our species, all creatures of this planet feel emotion to some extent; it is part of the survival instinct. The most primal of being of life, the emotions nor is the ability to control our emotions that defines us as human beings; the most common bond of all is love, that is what all desire. And yet we seek to destroy what we love, but none of this is what makes us human; what defines us as a species, the one most major thing we have in common, is we all live upon the earth. Bound to this water covered rock, spinning around a huge ball of burning gases, which is unique to our form of life; a planet we all depend upon to provide and sustain life for all of us. We adapt to our environment to overcome insurmountable odds, but we can also become overcome by our environment quite easily; we have to come realize that perhaps we are not that unique to life in general, for after all, anywhere there is a star there is the possibility of a solar system, and within that solar system there could be any number of civilizations, possibly even aware of us, very aware even.
But what makes us human is what connects us more than what divides us; it is not hate which is the opposite of love, it is fear. Stop fearing what you do not understand or be consumed by the by products of fear, hatred, anger, spite, jealousy, greed; instead be consumed by the products of love, forgiveness, understanding, happiness, gratitude, compassion. What makes us human is our will, the will to decide; we can allow our will to consume us, or to create growth. Which is kind of creepy because our species are consumers, but then our species are pretty good providers too. I am not defined by the judgement anyone chooses to bestow upon me, I am defined by what I am; a human being, why would anyone want to deny that? Or at least that’s the way I see it…
It has been brought to my attention that opinions are like assholes, everyone has one; which has provoked quite a series of pondering and realizations of this statement. I don’t disagree that there is truth and merit to this statement at all, in fact I believe it to contain much wisdom; anyone, all beings, including animals who contain a rectal sphincter have an opinion and entitled to their opinions. However this should not be confused with whoever has an opinion is entitled to be an asshole; yet, sadly, many do make this become their interpretation of meaning. I have noticed that the majority of people utilizing this phrase are indeed assholes; so I don’t see why we shouldn’t take their expert advice on the matter of opinions and assholes, they seem to be the authorities on being assholes, so certainly they should know a lot about the subject of crap.
In my opinion, having an opinion doesn’t mean you must be an asshole just because you have an asshole; and just because you can give shit, doesn’t mean I have to take crap. In fact, when I am exposed to assholes; my first reaction is to lookout for fecal matter, because sometimes the asshole is just farting. It is of my opinion that assholes shouldn’t hold their opinions in such high esteem and worship, after all; no matter how much you polish a turd, it’s still a turd. Unlike anyone else’s opinions, the asshole’s opinion is always the only right opinion to have; nobody else reserves this right but the asshole, if your opinion does not agree with the opinion of the asshole, then it is automatically the wrong opinion and is now subject to ridicule and denial. When attempting to deny the opinion of the asshole, refer back to the former sentence.
Now, if opinions are like assholes, and everyone has one; then that means that not only assholes have these opinions, so there are an infinite number of opinions being formed at any given moment in time. Some of the opinions are bound to stink, just like a load of crap, and others may stink more like an atomic fart; but not all opinions are going to stink, just like all opinions don’t come from assholes. Let us all just take a moment and give thanks for the truth in that statement; not all opinions come from assholes, amen. It is of my opinion, that since we are entitled to our assholes as a way to release the build up of methane and decomposing matter in our bowels; that even assholes are entitled to their opinions, however, that doesn’t mean that their opinions are desirable, after all, I typically flush what my asshole produces.
How many assholes do you know? How many assholes do you know that would have an opinion about this article? Well then, why not share it with them; allow them to voice their opinions about opinions and assholes. I deal with assholes daily, and it is my opinion that the reason they are assholes in the first place is because they need to get fucked! That’s right, ever seen anyone be an asshole after an orgasm? They just need to get laid to clear out the baby batter, then their opinions won’t matter anymore; if they even remember they had those asshole opinions in the first place. But keep in mind, that once the sex is over and they get moving again; the asshole tendencies may return, and with the attitude will come the opinions you must accept as truth.
Some will think I’m an asshole for posting my opinions in such a “vulgar” manner; yet all I really see is honesty, calling a turd a turd and such. Political correctness is for assholes who want to control everyone, including other assholes; after all, everyone has the potential to be an asshole. But I like to think of myself as more of a defender against assholes, a corrector of crap; and sometimes you just have to fling a little feces back at the little crap flinging monkeys to get them to understand others don’t like being covered in crap, especially if it’s not their crap to begin with. You may see it differently, that is your opinion; but this is just the way I see it…
