Everything Is Awesome!!!

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

I am not so wise. I'm screwing up many things in my life, my health, finances, relationships, you name it...

My mother used to tell me, "With age comes wisdom." I am 53 and not quite sure that is the case. "You’ll understand better when you’re older." Understand what? How to save money, keep long-term commitments and be unshaken by the criticism of others?

Humility comes from having life beat the hell out of you. Really? Accordingly, it all boils down to one thing - allow yourself to be crushed down and slowly get up and move on. That is all about understanding when you get older.

I read an article, where they say that the life's lesson is designed to teach us how we can learn to make decisions based on character, not feelings. Character comes from developing ourselves as human beings, 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 the wall of my character.

Why should I be fucked in order to learn something valuable? And the most important question is: The "valuable" for whom? For me or society or for 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 the intense sadness of what just happened.

Even you're not bipolar, 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.

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 spiritual "gurus".

It is all just a convenient way for the corporations that enslave us to shift blame from themselves (and how they are ruining our lives and the entire 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.

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

This magnificent spectacle called the world is the magic of the eye. It is plain trickery. The world is the product of the combination of the sensations and thoughts. In the final analysis, the world is neither true nor untrue. It is only passing appearance. And that is fucking awesome!
