I do not know where to begin, only that there must be some words inside to stir your heart with warmth.
In the way it has been for generations we treated you like something that needed tamed, shaped. Like a horse, you got broken.
This was society’s way, we knew better than the generation before, but only marginally. We stopped physically lashing out for the most part, but our words, feelings and actions were used to control you none the less.
You came knowing your worth, your purpose, and your freedom. We have tried extremely hard to cast layer upon layer on top of your knowing, yet you still feel it do you not? Only now there is no clarity, for now we have succeeded in obscuring it.
Clarity will come, but you have to seek it. To know who you are, why you are here, why any of us are here, these are important questions.
Right now you believe you are learning to think for yourself. If you start to ask yourself these important questions about your life, there will come a point when you realise that your mind – a most powerful tool – is starting on those outer layers.
You are heavily shrouded. Your first answers will be tainted. And more. Yet the answers lie within, keep going.
What to do? What to say?
To fail you, well, that was our path, and it is a perfect path because it can be nothing else. We have failed you miserably, yet not. Bad is good, in that it shows you the way if you choose to listen.
We cannot go back in time, we can evolve from today. Your experiences will play their part in our evolution.
Celebrate being not normal. Normal is a zombie of yesterday’s paradigm. As the saying goes, you did not come to live in this world, but to create a new one.
We need a new paradigm on earth; you needn’t look far to see this.
“But I need money to live”… trapped in today’s Earth.
Our potential far exceeds the way we live today.
Your potential is incomprehensible to those with rational minds; ignore them as best you can.
The answers are there to find, look within.
Imagine a life free of economic constraints. Imagine a life free of government control.
Actually, be more basic, let’s start somewhere else, you are a teenager after all.
Imagine a life free of parental control? Free of the limitations of an educational ‘system’.
Imagine a life free of your neurosis about how you look? How you will appear to others. What others will think of you.
Imagine a life free of sexual desire. In itself this desire is not a bad thing when it is born of love, but born of lust it is empty, soulless, you know this. So let’s go bigger, imagine a world where people act out of love.
Wow, a world where people act only out of love?
Sounds like a revisit to the 1970’s. Those hippies transcended their self limiting thoughts using drugs. The same exists today.
You do not need drugs to transcend the thoughts we have shrouded you in. You only need to become conscious of how badly these thoughts mess with your happiness.
Your thoughts are controllable, so are you feelings. Shoot, now I’ve let the cat out of the bag.
Learning how to master that is key to mastering your future. Our future. The future of mankind.
When your heart breaks, you have allowed someone’s opinion to become your reality.
Realize there is nothing but opinions out there. Nothing said before, by anyone, is anything but opinion. There are no such things as facts – unless you would like me to cite the ‘facts’ of yesteryear to see what a ridiculous concept this is.
One plus one does not always equal two, otherwise how would you exist? Man plus woman can equal man plus woman plus child in case you didn’t get that. Perspective changes depending on your plane of thinking.
Include this stream of words among those that you need to discern for yourself the truth – and that lies within. Look into your heart for the answer.
So you, young teenager, have much to think about. It will take you a lifetime so there is no hurry.
For now, as always, enjoy what is before you. Just know that you are more than you thought, you are love personified and you worthy of the future you will create.
Is that too big? Did I miss the mark?
Then we have made you feel too small.
The sadness you feel, the hurt you feel, the anger you feel, is you knowing that life is meant to be more.
Yes indeed, you are more, and life is more. But you need to ask yourself those important questions – to know who you are, why you are here and why any of us are here - then go seek your best life and we will stand in amazement at the beautiful future you unfold.
