It is cool to be a woke person.
Everyone loves to be a person that goes against the grain.
We all want to be THAT person that stands alone in his opinions, has a unique character and goes against the mainstream ideologies of society.
Who doesn’t want to be a person like this?
Every man wants to be the hero of the story right?
But what if I told you that most people that call themselves woke aren’t woke at all.
They just like the idea of being better than others and yes being woke is being better than a person in slumber.
They love the idea of realizing things that others are completely unaware of.
However these woke people are most of time the biggest sleepers themselves.
Take for example these silly Flat Earth theorists….
How somebody can become so ridiculously degenerated in common sense is beyond my comprehension.
Most of these woke people’s are even more drowned in delusions than the actual sleepers they’re confronting.
And I’ll tell you why.
Those who are truly awakened are very destructive individuals.
They are not constructive towards society at all unlike these woke people who desire society to change.
They do not care for changing society into something better.
They don’t care for fighting injustices and they don’t care for protesting against the social order.
Those who are truly awake forget about society altogether and return to the true human origins, which is not of this world.
“My kingdom is not of this world.”
– Jesus Christ, The Gospel of John: chapter 18, verse 36
Therefore silly statements like #BlackLivesMatter have nothing to do with being woke.
Just because you believe that black lives matter doesn’t mean you’re woke.
Just because you are able to see that black people are being mistreated in America doesn’t mean you’re woke.
Just because you leave your natural hair to grow and give your child an African name doesn’t mean you’re being woke.
All these things just mean that you’re black.
These things have nothing to do with being woke.
Being a vegan doesn’t mean you’re woke neither.
Eating organic doesn’t make you woke.
Meditating with a silly smile on your face and taking yoga classes doesn’t make you woke.
Protesting against climate change doesn’t make you woke.
Hating Donald Trump doesn’t make you woke.
Being a leftist liberal pro-feminist wimp doesn’t mean you’re woke.
Knowing that there are serious injustices in the world doesn’t make you woke.
The things that make you woke have been agreed upon by all ancient spiritual teachers, prophets, sheers and shamans that have walked this Earth in the ages before.
Spirit not the Body
“If those who lead you say, ‘See, the Kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”
– Jesus Christ, The Gospel of Thomas: verse 3
There is an overlapping synapse between all true awakened beings in this world.
What is the similarity between Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Muhammad and all other prophets and seers of the past?
It is the fact that all of them talked about the eternal spiritual realm and the fading reality of this physical world which is constantly subject to the laws of change and therefore death, destruction and decay.
“And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.”
– The Holy Qur’an: chapter 3, verse 185
This world is not real but an inherent illusion created for a specific purpose.
In Hinduism this is called MAYA which literally means “that which is not and yet is” and it refers to the illusory world of matter and constant change.
It is a place of learning to facilitate the soul into the spiritual realms from which it has originally descended (the kingdom of God/Heaven).
“The world is afflicted by death and decay. But the wise do not grieve, having realized the nature of the world.”
– The Buddha, Sutta Nipata
Being woke means that you’re awakened to this truth of the soul and its origins.
It means that you realize that you’re not the body but the spirit residing within it since the body is only part of the phenomenal and corporeal world.
If you are trapped in cultural identities like being pro this or that, being left or right, democrat or republican or even when you identify as a Christian or Muslim then you’re not “woke”.
You’re trapped in the cultural narrative of your society.
You’re not awakened to the inner truth of your BEING but your mind is occupied with the world of phenomena and fleeting things.
A person that is truly awake isn’t like the common person in society.
Only a person that is truly in touch with the divine essence deep within him can be awake.
All true extraordinary people that created things that weren’t present in the world before, were truly woke.
Creativity is otherworldly and those who are truly awake understand this very well.
All great inventors and artists of the past were in divine communion with the higher powers of nature and therefore brought pure creativity into this world.
They changed the things that were possible in this world.
Look at all these bright inventors from the ages past.
Those that discovered electricity, gravity, energy, atoms, microorganisms, infrared light and all other sciences that aren’t sensible to the human eye yet still exist.
They were truly the woke ones, in direct communion with Divine creativity.
They discovered things in the physical world that were part of the realm of fantasy and imagination for a very long time throughout our present human history.
The truly woke ones know that they can create whatever reality they choose to create, out of nothing.
They have realized that they were made in the image of the divine and that they are co-creators in its existence.
All creators in the world are woke on levels that the common person can’t comprehend.
The greatest of the greatest men are always great because they function on a higher level of awareness.
All great music artists, athletes, painters, inventors, scientists, philosophers, writers, masons, blacksmiths or whatever other creative occupation you can conjure up.
All of these people are in touch with something higher than themselves.
A higher intelligence, a higher consciousness.
And when they are in this state of higher awareness, they are in the state of being woke.
Napoleon Hill the author of Think and Grow Rich called this the sixth sense or the Door to the Temple of Wisdom.
“The SIXTH SENSE is that portion of the subconscious mind which has been referred to as the CREATIVE IMAGINATION. It has also been referred to as the “receiving set” through which ideas, plans, and thoughts flash into the mind. The “flashes” are sometimes called “hunches” or “inspirations”.
The sixth sense defies description! It cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy, because such a person has no knowledge, and no experience with which the sixth sense may be compared. Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by meditation through the mind development from within. The sixth sense probably is the medium of contact between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence, and for this reason, it is a mixture of both the mental and spiritual. It is believed to be the point at which the mind of man contacts the Universal Mind.”
– Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich: chapter 14
This man Napoleon Hill was no ordinary writer, heck he wasn’t even an ordinary man.
This was a truly WOKE man.
All the way back in 1937 he wrote a fifteen chapter long bestselling guide on the spiritual science of getting rich.
Yes getting rich requires a serious amount of spirituality and faith.
Something the rich will never tell you.
But the truly woke will tell you and they have told us many times before.
The science behind getting rich and prosperous is right there in the Bible.
Jesus said it right in front of your face…
Still you have these woke types today who choose struggle over prosperity.
Instead of trying to become successful in this world they resort to having self-pity and staying weak.
Instead of trying to create something of value which can enrich their life on this world, they rather entertain themselves with their victim identity.
Instead of becoming self-sufficient and self-educated, they rather degrade themselves by accusing people of racism or sexism for not hiring them.
Most people that call themselves woke are arguing other people they consider sleeping all day long on social media.
Then when there is something to protest against, they’ll hit the streets together and clash with the opposite party.
Then they return home to argue the other side again on social media and to indoctrinate themselves with some more of the same old arguments to support their woke vision.
This type of behavior is very destructive to a sane mind.
It will seriously cloud your judgement.
“A mind unruffled by the vagaries of fortune, from sorrow freed, from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated — this is the greatest blessing.”
– The Buddha, Mangala Sutta
Try for once to let go of all your staunch opinions and just live with your mind in the moment itself.
Do something creative, learn something new.
Bruce Lee said it…
The Present Moment is all you have
“nor will people be able to say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
– Jesus Christ, The Gospel of Luke: chapter 17, verse 21
Being woke means that you can see past the confounds of your time.
It means that you’re able to see the bigger picture and realize that the present needs your energy more than the past or the future.
Because remaining in the past means that you’ll relive it over and over again.
You’ll keep suffering from something which happened a long time ago and isn’t in existence anymore.
It does not occur at present and yet you keep worrying about it.
This induces stress and it is detrimental to a good lifestyle.
And always trying to work towards a better future means that you’re not paying full attention to what you should be doing right now.
Which is the time in which you actually live and have your being.
Goals are important but attachment to the outcome of a goal will always result in suffering.
Because the entire journey until the goal is accomplished will give you a sense of inadequacy.
You will always feel incomplete or lacking and even when you finally do achieve the goal, then the pleasure it gives you will fade away within no time.
The journey of life is always now.
You will never be satisfied if right now is not satisfying to you.
If you can’t live happy while being poor then you can’t be happy when you’re rich.
Both states of wealth occur in the same time period.
This is what Napoleon Hill was saying: THINK AND GROW RICH.
You have to be rich now in your mind if you ever want to be rich in matter.
You have to be happy now in your mind if you ever want to be happy in life.
You have to be woke now if you ever want to become awakened.
The keyword is… NOW.
History is a wheel
Those who are truly woke however don’t see history as a linear process.
No everything that has occurred from the so-called beginning of time is illusory.
These things aren’t linear at all.
History is like a wheel that never truly stops spinning.
It is a cycle of ages that keep repeating themselves over and over again.
Everything that occurs NOW has already occurred before in the previous ages of ETERNITY.
The truly awakened ones know that technological progress isn’t progress at all.
It is just part of the attributes and characteristics of the age we presently live in.
Therefore a being that is truly woke doesn’t care about politics like all these so-called woke activist types of today.
A true awakened being knows that all politics are just like little waves in the ocean.
They come and go like specs of dust on the never ending timeline of history.
It is not worth maintaining.
Don’t feed it your energy.
