The only death to worry about..
Is the death of your own ego. And you’ll be the one doing the killing. Destroy the ego, resurrect your consciousness. Step back and watch your emotions and feelings happen. Be objective.
Watch the reptilian brain with all it’s irrationality like observing an animal at the zoo. Watch the behaviors happen without judging, let them pass, repeat process indefinitely.
It’s not about safety, it’s about control.
Anything that is supposedly about safety, is actually geared to everyone following rules and it being about control. No matter where you work or what you do, there will be more rules implemented while you’re there. You start working somewhere, you start hearing about new policies right when you arrive at a new job usually. It’s always the case. More and more control, more and more pressure, more fear, more reptilian brain.
Before you know it, we will have implants in our arms, so you can keep up with your kid in this world that “keeps getting worse.” Is it really about your safety? No, it’s about them controlling you. Less and less power over choices, people blindly accept anything, and then loss of control.
“Thus the man who is responsive to artistic stimuli reacts to the reality of dreams as does the philosopher to the reality of existence; he observes closely, and he enjoys his observation: for it is out of these images that he interprets life, out of these processes that he trains himself for life.”
“An attempt to achieve the good by force is like an attempt to provide a man with a picture gallery at the price of cutting out his eyes.”
“Right is right even if everyone is against it. And wrong is wrong even if everyone is for it.”
“Whatever you do don’t doubt yourself because of others.”
