Not Everything Is As It Seems
Not everything is always as it seems.
Much of the time, we only interact with the world superficially
We take things at face value; accept things as they appear
But the reality is, life has a certain depth quality
What you see on the surface, may not be a true reflection of what lays beneath
So it’s important to be aware
To be able to exercise a level of discernment
To be able to ask the right questions,
To remain curious
To be willing to deep dive into things if and when required
There’s a certain limitation with accepting the most common narratives at face value –
It’s easy to be lead astray if you believed everything you heard
If you accept everything as it's given to you.
Just because everyone believes it, it doesn’t make it right.
And just because everyone is saying it, it doesn't make it true.
As a human being, you have the ability to use your reason
To entertain logic, which is taken from the Greek word Logos,
Putting things into their proper order.
This allows you to get to the essence, connect with the heart of the things that really matter
If you surrender your will to primitive drivers like fear, lust, pleasure and pain, then you relinquish your humanity along with it.
So remain vigilant.
Look beyond what’s directly in front of you and find the implicit meaning in it.
Sometimes the truth lays dormant in what’s not said, in silence, in what’s omitted.
So read between the lines.
It’s not really what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. But then there is also things as they really are.
