The most powerful oppressor is not the one who can kill, but the one who can convince the world that the oppressed deserves their oppression.
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Fear is the memory of pain. Addiction is the memory of pleasure. Freedom is beyond both.

I think people resist waking up because they aren’t ready to remember that they are responsible for their actions and don’t want to be held accountable for them.

…of course I also beleive I am an exiled ultra dimensional being, currently stripped of my phasing privileges and stuck here on this terrestrially locked solar system- which I find much more plausible then the “good people theory”, BUT I’m holding out for being the crazy being crazy instead.
It’s all a crap shoot, subjective quantum physics & string theory, I guess..
I’m still breathing, so I’ll hang in there.
Here’s to the good people, wherever they may be.
We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.

Nationalism does nothing but teach you to hate people you never met, and to take pride in accomplishments you had no part in.
