Today we keep up with the theme we started last Friday when I asked "Do you want to be alive?"
The next step is, what does that FEEL like to you? And what does it mean to be REAL?
Fully awake, alive, real, and in the moment kind of feeling?
In the same way Marie Le Pen said if we can't name evil to fight against it in France recently when talking about Islamic Terror - we can't fight FOR what it is we DO want if we can't name it also.
Today I invite you to not only think about what it means to you, but to take the time to sit down and make a list - yes, to take ACTION!
What is the actual feeling - feel like to you?
You can find examples in the trailer for the movie "The Search for Freedom" I played in the podcast or below right here.
I have to ask though - when participating in high risk sport is it to do the sport or to chase the feeling? Something to think about!
Next, what does the word - REAL - mean to you?
Think about it in the context of 'real life' or 'real relationship' or 'real human' - this isn't a silly question as Artificial Intelligence gets closer to being 'real' - what is its opposite?
And as virtual reality becomes more all consuming for more and more people, what is real reality?
And as we engage more and more of our time with digital, online, or entertainment sources - what does real mean in terms of how we spend our time?
As always, there are no right or wrong answers to any of this. The point I am trying to make is always the same - who do you want to be?
If we don't actively explore, seek, think, investigate, or just wonder - reality and the concept of alive will be defined and controlled for us. We will be nothing more than a passenger on a ride or a pod in the matrix.
Again, as Christmas approaches, these two books are filled with so much simple wisdom in their original form.
Something went wrong!
