Authenticity

Authenticity is very rare in this world anymore. You might get in a one in ten ratio…:It’s like we’re mass producing people with the same characteristics.

Then you have the ones who think one of their virtues is authenticity but that just what they that the most. That gives some kind of power to the masses. Leaving the world shaping minds cast aside and branded as crazy or weird. Perhaps there is a reason for this… You can’t really have a too many innovative and idealistic minds running at the same time. A bunch of atoms running, in all different directions, trying to make sense of what brews in their mind. The force of the world is in the masses, they run the ship. Once the masses run into an idea that seems good enough they go with it and bum! Their force is like the force of the universe. A current so strong it vanishes anything thrown against it.

In reality all you must offer the masses are some sort of answer and they go with it. It’s like a sedative. In my opinion that’s how religion got to be so powerful! Calming the fears and suppressing any other possibility because the anything else seems to be too painful and scary. A good friend asked me to do an exercise… Take a good hard look at the sky and really believe there is no God. How alone are you going to feel? It’s a great responsibility to think that we are the only ones down here.

Authenticity is not afraid of such things. Authenticity gives into new ideas and perhaps one that can lead us to a new spectrum. When the mind is set free and when there are no boundaries you’d be surprised to what you can find. The mind is the only intangible and invisible book of endless pages and ideas. You might not come to a conclusion right away but at some point to random thoughts might connect and make sense… Don’t be afraid of letting these thoughts come out and flow. Exercise your mind and eventually there will be a pattern but ideas must flow at all times. Remember, the mind is like a river searching and looking. This restless state, comes with not knowing and refusing to assimilate what is been fed to us. I don’t want the answer to be given to me. I want to come to my own conclusions. If it’s my world why must I settle for doctrines set thousands of years ago by people with less documented facts and records of the world and its people?

On other hand we have the opposite side of the world… The masses. The masses feed on one thing, ignorance. To be able to close your mind and act on motor-skills with out questioning the point or source. There is certain power to this. For one you are one with the world around you, nothing can stop such force. The power of ignorance comes from methodical behavior. To Follow the norm and not steer away from instructions. It’s like an army of brute force with the blue prints instilled in their minds. Not to be taken lightly… This is the engine of humanity waiting for instructions to follow. To complete the task given overrunning everything its way.

Yeah… I know.
