You are your own gatekeeper...
In a world where everyone's a critic, at least no-one can do you like YOU...
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
Hunter S Thompson
Yup, you’re on your own. But the good news is, what you really are is a non-physical consciousness projecting a mind and body through billions of infinite parallel realities every nanosecond, and the even better news is – as if being the one of four trillion sperm that ‘made it’ wasn’t enough – that, in spite of appearances, there’s never been a better time than NOW to be alive. In short, you are God.
There’s no wizard behind the curtain; life and consciousness expands through you and for you. In our time of the mainstream media’s propaganda and ‘cancel culture’, it’s easy to feel despondent and shirk responsibility but not only is there nobody holding you back but you and your unlimited imagination, but you create everything you experience and are energetically connected to everything and everyone in existence – ever! – and can start to accelerate and actualise your hopes and dreams through your thoughts, words and actions. Simply put, by being and accepting yourself, there’s now no need for the gatekeepers because everything you will ever need or desire has always – and always be – within you.
So, you create your own reality and, although everything changes, that doesn’t mean it has to be anything less than a smooth ride. Bill Hicks famously pointed out that a binary choice in every moment of either ‘FEAR’ or ‘LOVE’ is our life’s operating system, so why not use the latter as your guiding principle, as it’s just a ride.
Ideas cost nothing and creativity is a synthesis of copying, transforming existing ideas. If everything is laid out for you, then you only require your thoughts, words and actions to turn your ideas into reality. You can create anything you want and you can use your creativity to inspire and help current and future generations. It is all about your intention and if your motivations are pure of heart then those who are resonant with you will be attracted to you and your creations, and want to share and create with you. My entire life is proof, and my most recent work has been on a bedrock of fully embracing everything I am, the dark as well as the light.
So you’re never really alone and you can either be upset by the fact that life is truly meaningless or you can celebrate and go, “Hey! Life is meaningless!” and go for what you’re truly after.
Existence is relationship, although, like Hunter S Thomson suggests, the most important relationship is the one you have with your self. Life, and ‘others’ will test and challenge you but you would be completely bored without the challenges and obstacles. The fact that your heart still beats right now, and you’re reading this, means there’s work to do. There’s only one outcome, and that is to become completely enveloped in bliss and a love like we can’t even conceive of right now, but it could be reminiscent of the joy and bliss we felt when first born.
A week may be a long time in politics, but a lot can happen in a single 24 hours, and all it takes is for you to carpe the diem and push the boat out further than you’ve ever gone. You’re always supported in every decision you make and that can be an infinitely terrifying or infinitely amazing prospect. One day you’ll go from human being, to human ‘been’ but what will you leave behind? It is up no gatekeeper, it is entirely up to you.
