The Age of Hysteria

We suffer more in imagination than we do in reality.

We seem to have lost the ability to discern fact from fiction.

We seem way too quick to drink the Kool Aid,

More concerned with what everyone else is doing, rather than just keeping our eyes on the prize.

It’s a dangerous time, the rapid spread of information and misinformation, distracting you from the things that really matter.

Competing for your attention

Controlling the narrative

To a point where you no longer recognise yourself anymore

Where you no longer remember what you believe or what you stand for

Reducing us all to nothing more than instinctual primates, a cluster of biological cells; acting for no more than self-preservation

It’s nothing to be proud of, for even the lowest of all the living species do this.

We do nothing but voluntarily surrender our humanity when we act this way.

In this age of mass hysteria, we are slowly losing our ability to think and act rationally

To live and act from the heart

A human gift we have been endowed with.

Instead falling into the trap of succumbing to fear

Glued to the news networks, as if they will somehow be our saviours

But what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but suffers the loss of his soul?

Because life is not about staying alive, its about living.
