Are you a blind sheep?

No?

Are you sure?

Do you know that when you’re watching reality TV, reading celebrity gossip, following the news and scrolling on Facebook your mind is being CONTROLLED?

And do you realize that this isn’t just something that happened, that it’s a deliberate plan to keep you in your place, to keep you down and make sure you conform.

No?

Well pay attention – this shit’s important and I’ll be asking questions.

Look, I don’t care if you believe that there’s a ruling elite that meets secretly to make decisions about what actually happens in the world, and what stories you get told about it. That it’s no accident that Trump is in the White House, that it’s no surprise that “terrorist” attacks occur with remarkably coincidental timing.

It doesn’t matter if you believe that. It’s true, but it doesn’t matter if you believe it or not.

And it doesn’t matter if you believe that your education system is deliberately set up to teach you what to think. To teach you not to question authority, not to think for yourself, not to ever look too deeply into the truth, never to question the status quo.

It doesn’t matter if you believe that that’s deliberate, or not.

And it makes no difference if you believe that sports and pop culture, celebrity gossip and reality TV is deliberately created as a distraction to occupy your mind and keep you, again, from questioning the status quo, looking at the truth, seeing what’s really going on in the world.

Doesn’t matter if you believe that that’s deliberate – none of that matters. None of that matters.

What matters to me is that you know you have a choice, and that you make that choice, consciously. That you don’t just blindly continue in life, being led, like a sheep – a blind sheep, not knowing that you ever had a choice.

And there is a choice, but they’ll never tell you that.

So, red pill or blue pill. Red pill or blue pill…

Red Pill or Blue Pill?

Have you seen the movie The Matrix? It’s a great movie. It’s science fiction, but only just. Like all the best sci-fi, it’s only just fictional – it stretches the truth just enough, and then adds some cool science and special effects.

If you’ve seen the movie you’ll know about the red pill and the blue pill. The red pill opens your eyes and allows you to see the world as it really is, To see the truth, the uncomfortable truth about what’s really going on, about how you’re controlled, and used, by people who really don’t give a shit about your wellbeing, about your life, about you.

And the blue pill?

The blue pill is the one that sends you back to sleep, allows you to continue existing – not living – existing in a simulation of reality designed to keep you comfortably occupied, entertained and blissfully ignorant of the truth of reality.

So what’s it going to be? Blue pill or red pill?

There’s no way I’m taking the blue pill bro!

Well okay, but answer me some of these:

  • Did you catch the game last night?
  • Did you see what Katy Perry was wearing?
  • Did you hear what Donald Trump just tweeted?
  • Have you seen about that awful terrorist attack?

If you answered Yes to any of those, bad news bro – you already took the damn blue pill, and you’re taking the blue pill every day. Your mind is being controlled.

All of these things are just a distraction, a carefully created, fake world designed to keep you in the dark, blindly believing that you know what’s going on, that you’re being informed about the things that matter.

The results of a football game, or who had lunch with whom, or even which country invaded which other third world country that’s supposedly the cause of all our troubles. If you’re paying attention to any of that, believing that it’s true, then you are controlled. You are a sheep.

No way! I’m a takin’ me that red pill right now!

Well okay.

But be prepared to get uncomfortable. The truth is not comfortable. As Larry Winget likes to say: The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off!

And there’s plenty to get pissed off about.

When you come to understand that, in the name of preserving the status quo, and entertaining the masses, billions of dollars are spent. Squandered. People are kept in poverty.

People are killed.

Thousands of people are killed in the name of preserving power in the places where it truly exists, which is not the government that you see, but in the hands of the ruling elite, unseen, secretly controlling everything.

It’s uncomfortable to know this.

It’s hard to digest. It’s a bitter, unpalatable truth. But only when you truly understand how it really works do you ever have any chance of winning at this game.

When you understand how it really works you can start to play by your own rules, not controlled but living free. Free to think for yourself and live life on your own terms. But you need to learn.

You need to learn what’s really going on. You need to learn how to think for yourself. You need to keep informed – not by the media, which will only ever tell you what “they” want you to know, to keep you occupied and distracted with trivia.

You need to be informed, and educated about how the world really works and how you really succeed in life. Not by playing their game, but by standing up for what you believe in, working and living life on your terms.

Now once again, it doesn’t matter one bit if you believe all that stuff is true.

I believe it is true, but that’s not the point.

The point is that if you’re taken in by it, if you’re watching the game and paying attention to what the celebrities do. Whether or not you believe that that’s a deliberate policy to keep you distracted – you are distracted.

You will never do anything meaningful with your life. You’ll never break free from the comfortable mediocrity while your mind is occupied with trivia.

So whether you believe that it’s a deliberate policy of the ruling elite, or you think that’s a nonsense conspiracy theory doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you make a choice, that you choose where your attention goes, that you choose what to focus on. That you know you have a choice to live the life that you want to live rather than the one that’s been designed for you.

That’s the choice in front of you.

How do you choose?

Unlike in the movie,there is no actual red or blue pill to take, but there’s definitely a choice to make.

You’re like Neo now: I’ve shown you the truth. You probably don’t like it much. You may not even believe it.

But you have to choose.

Take the blue pill?

Taking the blue pill is the easy way out and sadly, in this world, it’s automatic. Click away from this page, go back to Facebook, go back to watching the news or reality TV and you’ll probably forget all about this.

You’ll go back to living in a world where everything you see and hear is carefully curated to keep you living in blissful ignorance of the truth, distracted by the comings and goings of celebrities and puppet politicians.

Even the things that outrage you, from terrorist atrocities to that disallowed penalty in the game last night, it’s all carefully orchestrated to distract you from the ugly truth of reality,

But of course you won’t know about that.

You’ll be a mind-fucked sheep, but you won’t care, because you won’t know. Is that the life you want to live?

Or you can take the red pill

To take the red pill you actually have to do something. You have to actively make that choice. You have to step away from mainstream media, from trivial preoccupations, and engage in something more meaningful.

Subscribe to a different channel. Get some news that feeds your mind, educates you, teaches you how to think, to think for yourself rather than telling you what to think.

And no, it’s not going to be comfortable, growth rarely is. Taking the metaphoric red pill will not provide an instant answer to all your problems. It won’t make you a millionaire overnight.

What it will do is set you on a path of personal growth, of learning and understanding.

Doing anything worthwhile takes time. Building an authentic business, creating wealth, leaving a legacy – it all takes time. But, as Earl Nightingale said:

 

“Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it.
The time will pass anyway.”

 

The time will pass anyway. What are you going to do with it?

It takes time to fully grasp the scope and the implications of the rabbit hole I just opened up for you, but when your mind is constantly fed with information designed to support and encourage you to be, do and have all that you can, the future and the world is yours to create what you will.

The question you have to ask yourself is this: Is it worth it? To have freedom.

Freedom of thought, freedom of expression, to know the truth, to live life on your own terms, to live a life that’s meaningful, to achieve success, however you define that, that feels meaningful to you.

Or would you rather go back to being a blind sheep?

You get to decide.
