YOU’RE LIVING LIKE AN ANIMAL
Lying on the floor with my feet up the wall this morning,
My thoughts were rolling through the concepts of
“conscious” and “unconscious” thoughts and living,
My train of thought led me to realise that
Some of you might as well be snails, sheep or rats with the way you’re acting.
I was thinking about how living unconsciously
Doesn’t make any sense when we have so many options available to us,
and we have the conscious awareness that we CAN do/be/have more in life.
Then I thought:
The unconscious mind makes perfect sense, actually.
It’s totally based on sense, ration, logic, reason…
Living unconsciously WOULD make total sense
If our souls weren’t calling for more
If we were just brains…
Well, that might not work…
If we only had brains and no souls?
My thoughts meandered further…
It would make sense,
and be TOTALLY EASY
If we weren’t HUMAN,
If we were more like one of the the other animals in the kingdom,
We could do what they do:
We could live on pure instinct and survival.
We wouldn’t have bills to pay,
We wouldn’t have to clean our house,
And outside of mating rituals, we wouldn’t worry about how we looked at all.
We wouldn’t get to choose a career, pursue a goal,
We wouldn’t get to make travel plans to exciting new parts of the world,
We wouldn’t get to cook delicious meals or eat out at nice places
We wouldn’t watch movies or go to shows or bars or clubs,
If we acted purely unconsciously and just lied for survival,
We wouldn’t WANT any of that,
We wouldn’t even PERCEIVE these concepts.
If, as humans, we lived like that,
We’d be missing out on the richness of life that we can have as humans
We’d be missing out on the freedom and choice that we DO have,
That some animals and organisms don’t have.
It’s what sets us apart in the animal world
We have higher consciousness.
And then it hit me:
Some of you are DISOWNING THE PRIVILEGES that you were born with,
Some of you are TRYING TO THROW YOUR FREEDOM AWAY,
Some of you are living for nothing more than to survive,
Scrounging around, “Getting By”, living week to week,
(And the worst part)
With no plans whatsoever of using the frickin capacity and potential that you have within you!
You’re just “doing” life, basic AF
Living out of unconscious fears
As if you are some other kind of animal!
Do you even know how INCREDIBLY POWERFUL you really are?
YOU ARE A HUMAN,
You have choice,
You have freedom,
You have ALL of the answers within you
AND you have the conscious ability to make ANY CHANGE that you desire,
SO START THRIVING LIKE IT!
