Everything Is Awesome!!!


I am not so wise. I'm screwing up many things in my life, my health, finances, relationships, you name it. I do daily yoga, true and I appear spiritual but also I smoke two packs a day, get drunk almost every weekend. I have an overactive mind, think a lot mostly negative things, criticize others and changing moods easily. My mother used to tell me, "With age comes wisdom." I am 52 and not quite sure that is the case.

There is general saying that "you’ll understand better when you’re older." Understand what? How to keep long-term commitments or be unshaken by the criticism of others or just possess a spirit of humility. Humility comes from having life beat the hell out of you. Really? Accordingly it all boils down to one thing, allow yourself to be crashed down and slowly get up and move on. That is all about understanding when you get older and I don't agree with it. It is all the corporate scam.

I read an article, I can't remember where, where they say that the life's lesson are designed to teach us how we can learn to make decisions based on character, not feelings. Character comes from developing yourself as a human being, while our feelings are something to be corrected and put under control. So every shitty experience I’ve ever had has been another brick in my character. So when I have the character, my feelings are under control then I have a necessary wisdom before I do certain things...

I am not quite sure about these things either! Why should I be fucked in order to learn something valuable? And the most important question is: The "valuable" for who? For me or society or corporations? I don't believe that the Universe communicates with us or that there is some grand plan for humanity. We are here by accident and we go through life without any deeper meaning of the things that happen to us. We all try to do our best to make our life meaningful, but not always knowing if we are doing the right things.

Is it natural that you make an effort to avoid experiencing negative emotions? Well they only come back stronger and unexpectedly when you suppress them. You can go through sudden anger which you can’t control for an hour or so, feel stable again, only to feel intense sadness of what just happened. These mood swings are part of life and it is a way of experiencing other emotions like joy and contentment. If you’ve felt sadness, pain and anger but chose to bury them and call that a character, then you have actually died. You may be a living but inside you are dead, just like a stone.

The philosophy of positive thinking means being untruthful; it means being dishonest. It means seeing a certain thing and yet denying what you have seen; it means deceiving yourself and others. - Osho

These days, people follow self-help mantras about the power of positive thinking and achieving their goals by positive thinking. I blame a lot of the positive thinking movement on Oprah and her talk shows with various "gurus". It was all just a convenient way for the corporations that enslave us to shift blame from themselves (and how they are ruining our lives and planet with their greed) and putting it all on us, as if, thinking positively will magically fix all that is wrong in the world. It is all just a convenient way to keep the ignorant even more ignorant.

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome when we're living our dream

Everything is better when we stick together
Side by side, you and I, gonna win forever, let's party forever
We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me, we're all working in harmony

Blue skies, bouncy springs
We just named two awesome things
A Nobel prize, a piece of string
You know what's awesome? EVERYTHING!
