After-all, we each have so many distractions in finding ourselves, truth, reality, friends, family, love, and what it is that we each are in life! Who ARE you?
First of all we have our parents influence in who “we should be”, or “what we should become”! We have big brothers who are athletes or amazingly creative that we should mimic. We have sisters who are incredibly smart, or beautiful and we are suppose to duplicate and match. We go to church and see our spiritual leaders who are the ones we look up to and try our best to be like. Our social leaders of the community have achieved what we all are suppose to aspire to be.
We see on television so many confusing “measuring marks” of what society tells us what, and who are the most popular. Don’t we all want to be popular, liked, and “respected”?! Yes, we all do. It is a natural desire to want to be accepted and part of “the cool kids”. It is natural to want to be good at something and have fans that recognize our achievements!
On television is the Barbara Walters special, (December of 2010) and she is interviewing Oprah Winfrey. We watch in awe of how amazing these women are. We look in awe and see what we want to be as a people. We look in awe at these smart, talented, people who are the things that greatness is measured by in all human beings. They are two women of incredible success and stature. Not just women but “people” that all cultures can look up to and try to be like.
Or are they all these things? I wonder!
I think of these types of people as Aliens. They are the ugliest of all people. The dirtiest and most harmful of all creatures to the human species in modern day times! Creatures in a movie which eat smaller mammals for their own survival. They relish in their own ability to be smaller mammal eating idols.
Their Alien words are harmful to all us and should be avoided at all costs. Their images and messages are broadcast over our televisions as a controlling “numbing” message. Their messages are intentionally to be that which each of us desire but are to not realize and obtain! Their messages and images are intentionally out of reach for all of us so that they can maintain their position of being thought of as “special”.
Why is it that each of us listen so much to the Aliens numbing message? It is numbing in that we each continue to strive to be like the Aliens when it is not possible. Have you ever seen a walking wind up toy which continue to head butt the wall in front of it? It continues to try and move forward over and over but will never get past the wall. This is what the Aliens want of all of us. Their messages wind us up, pointing us towards the wall, and when we get there we don’t know any better than to change direction. We don’t realize the messages the Aliens tell us are for no other purpose but to keep giving us unreachable standards so that we are so busy trying to reach those standards that we never really realize our own individual greatness in just being normal.
Aliens cast upon all of us their spells of unobtainable things in life. They show us what is not possible and in-so keep us powerless and a slave through our constant “head butting the wall” attempt to be like them.
It is time for us all to unite and not look at the Aliens anymore! It is time to not listen to the Aliens ever again! It is time to ignore the Aliens making them meaningless and obsolete! The Aliens food supply is our needing them. By not needing them, not listening to them, not wanting to be them, they will starve to death and disappear.
The greatest desire in life for all of us, is that we all so, so , so, desire to just wake up and just be happy! We wake up and just desire that our loved ones are healthy and safe! We wake up and do our very best to support our families! We are a diverse species. Some, wake up and do a line of coke, or do a trick, or dread having to see someone at the office who we don’t want to see! We wake up homeless, or with a mortgage we can’t pay, or son in jail, or just having been abused in some way by another! Good things and bad things…”We” are life.
“We”…..”all of us”….ARE the purest of what nature is and meant to be! “We” are the measuring mark of how life is to be lived. “We” have real, achievable, attainable personality traits, bodies, and successes. The Aliens do not!
