Truth of Our Lives

Black and white, right and wrong, life and death – life is full of duality. It isn’t like the whisperings of secret societies or deadbeat governments. Duality is the ultimate truth. It holds no illusions, no contempt, or any other form of disdain. It simply exists.

At its most basic form, duality is the reality of you and me. It is of our existence, a dual of life to survive long enough to do the right things for the right reasons, in our own benefit or the benefit of others we care about.

The differences and similarities all humans share are the dreams and tragedies we all hold closest to our hearts and the hopes and despairs we harbor within our minds. It’s the very equilibrium of chaos, the very pendulum of harmony. It is the ultimate judge of who you are not only as a human being but mainly as a living soul.

Duality can come in many different forms. When we’re children, it is disguised as the comforts of our imagination vs. the reality of the world surrounding us. When we’re adults, it is the concept of “you vs. the world”; it is the “materially wealthy vs. the materially poor,” but moreover, above all else, it is “us” vs. “them.”

Duality, just like humans, matures into a whole new creature as it grows older alongside each new generation of adults. Duality is just as wicked as it is righteous.

That’s why older people often warn younger people to not put so much importance on material things. Because at the end of the day, what really matters, is the memories you create with anyone you might fall in love with, or the memories you might create alongside your parents or siblings. It is the memories you make with close friends and even with complete strangers.

We can’t forget what’s at stake in our society.

We can’t forget the pains and ills that we are leaving our children of tomorrow’s world.

That is what duality is; it is the realization that we are constantly stuck between the here-and-now and our eventual end, our human death. It is the difference between what we decide to do with our lives vs. what we could have done.

There is no point in contemplating for too much longer. Just do it, just go out there and make some form of difference, even if it’s “small.” Because let’s face it, even “small” acts of change can make someone’s whole day that much better. It can leave an impression on a small community for years to come; it can make a “nobody” into a “somebody”; when viewed through the lens of society.

Truth be told, though, what matters most is that you feel satisfied with your choices in life at the end of the day. Even though we may not control our environment completely, we can always choose to do the right thing in life. Always keep in mind the importance of truth and lies. Remember that we all make mistakes, and it’s part of the journey. But what you can do, is try your best to show even a tiny bit of kindness and understanding for your fellow men and women.

Life is already a trial in itself, and we have to band together with those men and women who share the same ideology of truth in the face of a society full of lies and deceptions.

We must feel sorrow for those who have turned cold and wicked. We must feel remorse for those who do not fully understand that truth is the only way to set ourselves free from the shackles the physical world places on each-and-every-one of us. Yet, we must remain steadfast in our goals and aspirations to make this world even slightly better for the children of tomorrow.

Because I refuse to live in a society that torments our girls, a society that condemns our boys, a society that haunts our women, and a society that thoroughly corrupts our men.

We must not let fear get in our way; we must try and reroute society to work for us as a collective of human beings. Only then will life become even remotely better. Because as of this writing, the physical manifestation of human life is certainly far from where it once was.

10 thoughts on “Truth of Our Lives

  1. Outstanding text. Here goes my thoughts and personal touch without asking permission as a good buzzkiller. 😀
    I’m sorry.
    As brilliant mentioned above: BE BOLD!
    Below only plain surfaces for ordinary readers or deep abysses for those who know how to See.

    Our Modern State has an infame origin. They just switched slavery to paid-slavery.
    We must understand between all dualities:

    1) Everything the State says is a lie, and everything it has it has stolen. (The strong rule the weak and the history is written only by the winner side). State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: ‘I, the state, am the people’.

    2) The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. (That’s why exist Religion, Media and Social Media)

    3) Underneath this reality in which we live and have our being, another and altogether different reality lies concealed… (Be or not Be. Not being is what drives us crazy to the borders of suicide)

    4) We cannot help but see Socrates as the turning-point, the vortex of world history. For if we imagine that the whole incalculable store of energy used in that global tendency had been used not in the service of knowledge but in ways applied to the practical — selfish — goals of individuals and nations, universal wars of destruction and constant migrations of peoples would have enfeebled man’s instinctive zest for life to the point where, suicide having become universal, the individual would perhaps feel a vestigial duty as a son to strangle his parents, or as a friend his friend, as the Fiji islanders do: a practical pessimism that could even produce a terrible ethic of genocide through pity, and which is, and always has been, present everywhere in the world where art has not in some form, particularly as religion and science, appeared as a remedy and means of prevention for this breath of pestilence.
    5)j Francis Bacon said “Knowledge is power”. So, If I’m the badass motherfucker ruler of the whole world I would kill everyone that know my past. I must erase all true history and impose my interpretation of the world, human civilization, universe, languages, countries and everything else that really matters to build my world.
    Because maybe the true history is very disappointing for those looking for meaning in their lives as goes on:

    Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling solar systems, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing. That was the most arrogant and mendacious minute of “world history,” but nevertheless, it was only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths, the star cooled and congealed, and the clever beasts had to die. One might invent such a fable, and yet he still would not have adequately illustrated how miserable, how shadowy and transient, how aimless and arbitrary the human intellect looks within nature. There were eternities during which it did not exist. And when it is all over with the human intellect, nothing will have happened.

    Variant interpretation: In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of “world history” — yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.
    One might invent such a fable and still not have illustrated sufficiently how wretched, how shadowy and flighty, how aimless and arbitrary, the human intellect appears in nature. There have been eternities when it did not exist; and when it is done for again, nothing will have happened.

    1. Well stated, truth be told, the very reason why I never bring up this truth in my posts is for the very same reason that it will never change. I’m not saying it’s not impossible that one day, there will only ever be one single human being left alive on earth, but what I’m saying, is that the probability of the other 7-8+ billion other humans simply “dying off” is very, very unlikely. I could, of course, have brought up this reality- this truth- of our human condition on an individual level, but again, the truth of the matter is that we live in a world where our only surefire way of surviving is by playing by the often times ridiculous rules of society and also the sometimes outrageous rules of those who hold positions relatively “above us” in terms of power. Of course, it is refreshing to know that someone else besides myself knows this deep-rooted truth which you have spoken. But in my eyes, it’s futile to hold such a viewpoint for too long a time. It is, in my opinion, a great way to waste away your potential and your life. Thank you though for your words of wisdom, again, I am glad someone else knew this piece of knowledge that most others do not dare speak of or admit. It truly is a reality which might very will never be fully accepted in our society for the very same reason that it is seen as “wholly selfish” and “egotistical”.

    2. I forgot to mention a very important piece of information you likely know about. The irony of our reality, is that those individuals who hold positions of power are often times abusers of their power. It is, of course, for the very same truth you speak of. The reality that we as individuals are meant to live our lives as the sole “ruler” of our own existence. It is this very same truth that these people in the true positions of power (behind the curtains of course, we never know the true power-holders or our world), utilize this very same truth. In their eyes alone; they only see themselves as the sole human being worth saving. They see themselves as the sole philosophers; the sole rulers of our Earth. And tragically enough, their perspective on life has the very same effects on the “other 99%”; us. I wish reality weren’t so cruel at times, but this reality is the truth.

    1. Thank you, I enjoy discussing these perspectives with other people. It’s always interesting to get new insight from other people here, it helps to expand the scope of knowledge and reality for all of us.

      1. Life is a learning experience, there’s no right or wrong way to do things in life. You may feel lost now, but perhaps later on you’ll find that those experiences were worth the time to took to take the chance of finding out what you’re meant to do in this lifetime.
