What If Our ‘Normal’ Is Madness?
The state of having a serious mental illness … we don’t know what we are.
Extremely foolish behaviour … we think we know.
A state of wild or chaotic activity … we follow the crowd.
We are brain-washed to function at a very basic level. We may be able to do complex things, but it’s all based on mechanical activity. This shows how our brains are wired and rewired by subliminal influence, undermining each and every one of us, and presenting us with tools to think a certain way.
If we do not recognise our madness, our suffering, then no investigation into our true reality of absolute sanity is possible, and we will be unable to deal with situations from a different point of view. To put it simply, are we free? This is exactly why the Buddha taught that the first step to enlightenment is to acknowledge that we are suffering/mad! 😀
First, ideas are introduced into our mind. Once established, the brain constructs its pathways, and the result is permanent ‘fixtures and fittings’ – all the furniture we need to follow a certain lifestyle. We become predictable, and anything that goes against the current narrative is shunned. Each generation subtly traumatises the next = inbred madness.
Conscious awareness cuts through this conveyor-belt of instructions, which are expressed in our black-and-white attitude, our do’s and don’ts. Direct experience is in the greys – touching, feeling, smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing, and so, adjusting. Digital people cannot adjust; they think in a vertical system of instructions – that’s why people behave in the way that they do.
Lateral thinking is, “What is it?”
That very moment is pure consciousness,
rather than a conscious-mess.
Who’s doing this brain-washing?
We accept the madness of others.
Still think you’re normal?!
