Five Stages of the 'Awaking'
“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” -Henry Ford
One of the greatest challenges to becoming Totally Free is to be able to
think independently from everyone else. You know instinctively that no
one cares about you, as much as you care about yourself.
Yet we constantly listen to others about what is best for us, instead of thinking about what is best for us. That is because we live in a world where everyone tells you what to think, but no one tells you how to think.
We are blasted everyday with advertising, financial sales pitches,
political media propaganda, religious dictates and more and more social
pressure to conform. Most of our lives we don’t make any real decisions
we kind of just fall into a routine. You see when you do not really
think, you leave your mind open to those who do think.
The real and most often unnoticed danger is a class of predators manipulating societies for their own selfish benefits. If you go along to get along and not think outside of the box, you risk being caught in the undertow of a doomed society or worse.
“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands.
The present education conventions of intellectual and character education, fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk.
We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science.
We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters.
We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply.
The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.” - John D Rockefeller
