As a child, we are informed that we have limitations and our boundaries are clearly defined. Before we know it, we’re being shaped in every way to be who we are not, and given no support in finding who we are. The curious child is taught to suppress his imagination and lower the level of his game, to be “protected” from the pain of disillusionment. We become blindly “obedient” to the system, to our limitations. Eventually our dreams and “unlimited possibilities” are buried, and we conform to the masses – wrestling with our inner-truth whenever it pops up … seized with fear of being isolated from those whom we yearn to receive love and respect from. Instead we pursue the dreams of others, the “what is defined as success” from our peers and role-models, and lose ourselves in a lie.
And some of us… have an experience which makes us question what we’ve been told that sends us tumbling down the rabbit hole to figure out what else we’ve been lied to about.. what else is possible… but we still have the same fears of what “other people” think, we still have the programming….
… but can we undo what was programmed into us?
I’m going to do another human potential experiment. We’re all delusional. Every belief we have is a delusion. What would happen if we take on a delusion that is serving us? Last time, it went badly – because I didn’t know what would happen and I went full-on and lifted my entire roof on what was possible and my whole life was turned upside down. This time… I’m going to have a strategy first.
