If you don’t know who to trust, what to trust, or even what to believe, imagine that you are a seed growing in someone else’s soil. You did not knowingly create the environment you grew up in, nor is it your duty to weed out its problems.
The key word here is “knowingly,” because you are becoming aware that there is more to life than meets the eye. Look within and find what motivates you — not what society tells you should motivate you.
This is not a copout. You did not knowingly create the situation you are in at this moment, and the only way to “fix” it is to become knowing. Your intuition knows what is real and what is not, even if your so-called “intellect” keeps calling this “fantasy.”
(Your intellect is not you, by the way. It is purely a product of your institutions, but that’s a story for a different day.)
Clear the connection to your intuition. This is the only way you will know what is “real.” Learn to trust your intuition, let it flow through your imagination, and you will create your own reality. By YOUR rules.
You are no longer a seed. You are a beautiful flower and can transplant yourself out of society’s soil back into the Garden of Eden where you belong. And chances are, the people who care will follow you there.
You change the world by changing YOUR world.
