Walk in the Fire

Doug Michael

What do you truly fear? What holds you back from living and expressing yourself as an actualized human being? What is it that has convinced you that you are less than, powerless, insignificant or anything less than magnificent? What is this odd phenomenon of the embracement of a victim mentality?

Was it your upbringing, your reLIEgion, your cultural programming or your prepackaged worldview that was force-fed to you since you were a child? Does it even matter? Does your life and experience reflect your inner spirit onto the world or does the world define you? How do you shine your inner light onto a darkened world? It’s not as if anyone is going to care anyway, so who gives a fuck right?

How does one remain indifferent to the destruction of freedom or to the mass murder and genocide of their brothers and sisters? How does one simply go along to get along in a world of shallow, plastic, hollow and empty conformists? How does one relinquish their right to think for oneself and allow anything external to tell them what to think, who they are or what they should be? How can one so blindly give away their personal sovereignty? How does one remain real within a cultural prison paradigm of mediocrity, false empty promises and shattered remnants of what could have been and not be affected by it; to not be driven towards the goal of self-discovery and self-creation?

How does one repair the tattered vessel sailing on the stormy seas of despair? Does it even matter to you? Or do you simply spit upon the gift that has been given to you and bow in the face of tyranny while you lick the boots of those willing servants of darkness that proudly subjugate you and destroy your children’s future? Are you psychologically and emotionally free in this world, this cornucopia of insanity or do you operate in the capacity of a victim, a happy little slave? Have you ever even pondered such things? Do you even care? It’s OK if you don’t but if not, then why not? Perhaps it’s time to stand up?

To stand up within your own sentience, your own consciousness and your own power and to exist as and be the light that you wish to see in the world is the only path to actual freedom and to the creation of a new experience! Evolution is a willing act for self-aware beings. It is an internal decision, a choice that you and only you must make for yourself! The world is not going to give it to you nor should you ever expect it to.

The most insidious and destructive form of tyranny is the denial of what you truly are. When billions of people do that collectively the world becomes a sewer and psychopaths will happily remote control you straight over the edge of the abyss into your own oblivion. If you let those parasitic creatures do that willingly, with no protest and nary a whimper, then you deserve to fall, and you will. In this world, in this planetary mental institution, freedom must be guarded, revered and fought for with vigilance, and this begins on the inner landscape of existence. How can you ever expect the outer world to reflect anything but disharmony if the inner schism of your own psyche is unresolved? You can’t! It’s absolutely insane to think otherwise.

The temple is in disrepair. The vessel is shattered and broken. No one is coming to save you; that’s a bullshit concept because an eternal self that is aware of its true nature knows that it does not need to be rescued. You need to save yourself. You need to confront your fears and walk within the light that you are, and the darkness too! Let’s not leave that part out of the equation. You are the light and the dark and all that exists and this is the knowledge and understanding that has been kept from you. Your very essence has been corrupted and stolen and so few are even remotely aware of this bitter and painful truth. It would not be beneficial to this world of illusion and shadow for you to be privy to that knowledge; it does not benefit the system of enslavement that you were born into and that most will serve unquestioningly and slavishly until the day they are buried in their graves.

We live within a mechanized carnival of illusion, an artificial construct of madness and deception, a simulacrum. We have artificial intelligence but very little actual intelligence. We have smart phones, smart meters, smart TVs, smart toilets, smart condoms, smart refrigerators and stupid people. The most maniacal and corrupted amongst us lead us, and you go out and vote for them! Why does humanity insist upon looking to others to lead them? Why, oh why, for centuries, for millennia, has humanity not figured out how to lead themselves and to dispel all of the manufactured divisions so that we can come together and evolve?

We need technology to think for us because the art of thinking for ourselves has been discouraged and willingly given away. We cannot even sit across form one another and converse about anything meaningful or relevant anymore without checking our damned cell phones every six seconds. We have “social networking” so that we can present a virtual image of who we are to the world or air all of our dirty laundry and personal baggage in a desperate cry for attention or “likes,” as if that fucking matters at all. Meanwhile, the spirit of community has been murdered. We don’t talk anymore, we text and make everything so impersonal.

Update your status and “go live” and wallow in that little virtual world that’s been given to you but please, please, don’t take it seriously. It’s a fucking trap, a misdirection, a distraction! We have willingly become plugged into the matrix, surveilled and tracked, monitored and controlled, regimented like cattle as we blindly march to the slaughter.

Tyranny and evil has run amok in this world for far too long. We accept, it, we allow it and we give rise to it because we have never learned to deal with the most vicious tyrant of all, the one that exists within our own minds! Liberation of the mind, heart and spirit is born of the reconciliation of the inner divide, the reunion of the shattered remnants of self as they come together to give birth to a self-realized, self-actualized and self-created human being. The only way to be truly free in this blood-splattered madhouse is to divorce one’s mind from everything that insults the intelligence, the heart and the spirit, to stop mistaking insanity for normality.

It’s time to walk in the fire. The flames will burn you and engulf you, they will rip you asunder but they will also cleanse you and heal you; they will restore you and deliver you; they will make you whole. Walk in the fire! The fire is your fears, your doubts, your indecisiveness, your victimhood, your sense of defeat. The fire is your compassion, your selflessness, your love and your empathy. The fire is the ever present and raging inferno that exists at the core of our very being.

  • This is one of the most meangful paragraphs I have ever beheld: ‘The most insidious and destructive form of tyranny is the denial of what you truly are.
