I literally don’t know where to start.
There’s so much to this topic, it overwhelms me.
So I’ll just start..
We are born as unlimitless beings, but are raised according to others their rules and believes.
Limiting our way of thinking and keeping us from being our true self.
It’s a great gift when you are born in a house hold where they are aware of the lies of society
and the truths of the universe..
Our way of thinking is like a circle. We are raised to think and act inside this circle.
It’s not that parents do this on purpose, but that’s the problem.
That we are not aware of this ‘brainwash’.
We’re making this circle smaller and smaller, eating it away ourselves, as we go.
Spiraling more and more inwards.. The mind becomes more limited and it gets harder
to find your way back. It will acquire something drastic to happen.
Something that will challenge your limited way of thinking.
”You can never be free, because everywhere you go is your prison.”
As we stay in this circle we remain a slave of society.
A slave of our own unconscious mind.
Wherever you go you take yourself with you, and thus your prison.
But coming places, learning more people and more about the world can definitely
enhance your way of thinking. It might make your circle even want to spiral outwards..
It will still need you accepting and acknowledging this growth and ignoring the
unconscious mind. Otherwise all will remain the same.
Let your intuition, your inner voice, take over.
”I have my family here, I can’t go away for a longer period of time. I belong here with my family, this place and my friends.”
A limit of the unconscious mind!
We are endless beings. We are not bound to people. A city. Our life experiences.
These outer aspects don’t define who we are and where we are supposed to be.
We are all one in the end. Wherever you are, there’s your home and there’s your family.
The fact that we are born in a certain house hold and became accustumed to them
does not mean it’s where we belong and where we should stay for a life time..
”People always want to blame something outside themselves for the state of the world or
their own unhappiness.”
That is what will happen when you don’t follow your inner voice.
Anger, frustration, sadness and what not will overcome us.
We’ll act out on loved ones or people we don’t even know. We’ll discriminate other races,
gossip about someone you and your friends don’t like for some reason..
It’s all a part of this society and seen as normal.
What is seen as normal is still different in every household, every country and so on,
but.. just overall speaking.
My personal experience:
Maybe it was a good thing my father wasn’t there, for a few years, when I was growing up.
From age 8 till 13.
My father is someone who sees his believes as the one and only truth and he pushes it, while he can.
My mother also has certain believes, but doesn’t push. She gives in at a certain point.
She let me define myself and do my own thing.
When my father came back he immediately started pushing his rules and believes on me and my sisters.
I loved wearing black nail polish, but my father said it was a ‘devil thing’ and pushed and pushed until my willpower was gone and I gave in.
Still I kept on fighting and doing what I liked, but we had a hard time as a family with
all this fighting and hate towards each other.
Because it wasn’t just me fighting him, but my sisters also.
As more outer influences on my own thinking came(like going to a school where
we started to work towards our future and learning the job we would want to do,
for the rest of our lives probably) I started to develop this limitless way of thinking.
I spiraled inside this circle.
It was in a slow sneaky way. In a way that it made me think it was me consciously making these
decisions to change and adjust myself.
I turned into a sad human being and discovered alcohol.
Alcohol made me more free in my talking and doing and I liked it.. it was a side of me I’ve never experienced.
Week days were about school and weekends were about drinking and going out.
Still I kept on searching for ways to be different/do things different.
I told myself(and others) it was me being myself.
At one point a deep depression and an eating disorder overcame me.
All I saw were these walls around me of limiting everything in life.
I was constantly asking myself why I’m on this planet and hoping something
would happen to me. Like.. just vanishing from the earth..
What makes it hard to snap out of this circle is because we know what to expect in there
It’s easy and more people have been there and done that.
It comforts us and the unconscious mind likes comfort.
It was veganism that got me spiraling more outwards!
The wonder of social media that got me interested in it!
At the same time I also got into yoga and meditation.
Something changed inside of me and things are changing more and more since then.
My mind is unlimitless.
My father? He changed. He is more laid back and minds his own business more.
He’s interested in my things(up to a certain point) and I let him do his things.
I feel like I’m not adressing everything I wanted to, but my mind is blank now.
There were so many words and sentences coming to me over the course of one day,
overlapping eachother which made it hard to put it all together.
Please do leave a comment with your thoughts on this endless topic.
Like always, a song for you guys fitting the addressed topic!
I immediatly knew which one.. and it’s my favorite.
