TELL ME, WHAT DIRECTION IS THIS SOCIETY HEADING?

BETTER THAN BROADBAND

What if someone were in such utter illusion that they took truth to be falsity and falsity to be truth? What if someone were so backwards that they took self-control to be degradation and progress to be “we’re getting wasted, man”? What if someone were in such utter delusion that they looked into humanity’s past and all they saw were uncivilized indigenous people who had missed out on the luxuries of fine dining, sports cars, football, and Internet pornography?

VALUES + IDEALS

What if everyone believed the VALUES and IDEALS they were fed on tell-lie-vision and radio and blindly accepted these values as their own, never having the courage to determine on their own which values and goals in life are the best to live by and give their heart to?

I CAN THINK FOR MYSELF. I AM NOT AFRAID TO TAKE THIS JOURNEY outside my comfort zone! LISTEN, MY DEAR SISTERS AND BROTHERS, THE COMFORT ZONE IS DEATH! WAKE UP AND LIVE!

Do you know that the Time Factor is imperceptibly ticking away with each breath, bringing you one step closer to death?

Do you think you can know everything about this world, this culture, about the ways and means of life, happiness, love, culture, art, and music, through the Internet and through an accredited university only?

What if there were a society that had not placed its highest value on material comfort and fancy technology but had a wealth of knowledge that, like a good friend, could guide you through thick and thin, the hardships of life? What if there were answers to the most important questions of life? What if it were normal to know why we are all here? What if taking birth as a human mean automatically qualifying for the school of absolute knowledge? And what if all you had to do was have the humility to sign up for the class?

ANCIENT TEMPLES

When I look into humanity’s past, I see the ancient temples of yore, and thus I see TRUTH, handed down through the ages.

I see the past of OUR human civilization. I see the altars. I see Divine Deities. I see the divine images of gods lining the temple walls. I look on all seven continents and see the same things. I see societies a million times more advanced in VALUES and ­IDEALS then ours. I see the most beautiful and exquisite works of art. I see the cultural iconography that people lovingly died for. Something so sublime that they used every second of life to praise and acknowledge these entities as sustaining principles of the entire cosmic manifestation. For them, it seemed obligatory to the very nature of the soul.

I see a cultures that could see THE GREAT TREE OF LIFE & THE CIRCLE OF LIFE.

BETTER THAN BROADBAND

HOW BIG THIS UNIVERSE IS WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON AT ONCE. It’s all right now, and we are taking it all in through our tiny eyes. I can SEE. I can think for myself. I don’t need PBS, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, or OBAMA to do my thinking for me. I’m a living being. Part of the Divine. I can see. I can know. I can learn from the source itself. I HAVE A DIRECT LINK. MUCH FASTER AND BETTER THAN BROADBAND. MORE CLEAR THAN BLUE RAY. AND WITH BETTER AUDIO CLARITY THAN BOSE.

All I have to do is be willing to think for myself, to know for myself, because I want to know, not because I’m supposed to, or because if I don’t I will get fined by the government or lose my girlfriend or my followers, but because it’s my nature as a human being to know. It’s natural for the soul to know its own ultimate purpose.

I’m not afraid to go against the grain of this culture of ignorance, because I now have a source of information on life much better than FOX NEWS.
