Do you ever feel like you live in two different worlds? Do you ever feel like there is much more going on then what appears on the surface? Do you like life has many hidden mysteries? Or do you feel like what seems complex may really be simple? Well not only do I think these things…I know them to be true. And I am going to explain why it is important to understand that things aren’t always what they seem. Actually things are rarely what we perceive them to be upon first glance.
I am going to give you a few examples of what I mean and hopefully by the end of this you will not only understand what I am saying but you will put this into practice. Everyday we all wake up, shower, dress, and get ready for work. While we are getting ready for work we are also putting on our cloak and our mask. The things we deal with at home, socially, internally, emotionally, and physically get tucked away and we try our hardest to put on a good show for everyone. And that’s just the beginning. Believe me things aren’t always what they seem. From that job you know you are perfectly suited for and the company feeds you some BS making you feel that you have a chance but all the while they’ve known all along that the job was going to the boss’ friends’ nephew or something like that. Believe me things aren’t always what they seem. On a bigger scale we are deceived by our own government on a regular basis depending on whose agenda it is. Just look at this situation in Syria…
Despite our sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters in the military still being killed in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places in the Middle East, we still feel the need to even consider going to war with another country. How does that make sense? I bet if you interviewed 100 people about 90 of those people would agree that we do not have the manpower or willpower to engage in battle with another country. When did we become a nation that stays in some beef? I mean even 50 Cent has to be shaking his head at some of this madness.
Do you remember when the U.S. built the case to go to war with Saddam Hussein? Remember the vile of white powder that was said to be chemical weapons as part of the big weapons of mass destruction campaign? Later on they found out that the substance was not chemical weapons nor weapons of mass destruction. Millions of Americans felt as if we had no reason to be in Iraq, so did some soldiers. Today we find ourselves in the same situation. The only difference is that now we have Russia licking their chops for a chance to jump into the fight and N. Korea on deck. And yet the government is seriously looking at using more resources and soldiers to launch strikes on Syrian land. Doesn’t something about this sound shady to you? Well it does to me. In my opinion our country has never been so unstable financially, globally, and internally. What does the government see that the American people don’t see and why isn’t it being spelled out for us?
At the end of the day deception is a big part of our lives and if you walk around blind you will just keep bumping into the same wall that everyone is bumping into. Sometimes you have to step back and open your mind to see beyond the surface. And that applies to every aspect of your life. Learn to use your intellect to see the way things really are. What may seem easy may be hard. What may look hard may be just a façade. By learning how to tap into your insight and intellect, you can experience a whole new world, it may not be pretty but the real will set you free because things aren’t always what they seem.
