We’re taught from the earliest memory that to live a meaningless life is a squalid, uncontributing approach and that such behavior deserves the full might of society’s contempt…
Hmm.. I have another theory!
You see, parents and early education are just one of many stinky layers in this swindleous onion. At the core, is a never ending smorgasbord of deception screaming you need to forget going after some dumb little dream you’ve got stuck in your head and do some worthwhile endeavor, some ‘meaningful’ bollocks in your life instead. Like hell you do! Because what these flimflammers actually mean is for you to substitute their busted ass ideas and desires for your own.
‘My life is meaningful’ – my ass!
You need to realize in fact that the reason you’re so demotivated in the first place is exactly because of this motivation-murdering mountain of bilious bullshit you’ve been fed. Because before you even had the stirrings of something you could call a dream, certain elements in society were robbing you of your natural motivation and chance of personal happiness and success. But the key element they haven’t quite managed to eradicate yet (but they’re working on it – educators, psychologists, governments), the one essential that is really, truly you… is your true desire! Your core dream. Sure since you were a kid they’ve buried it under such oceans of garbage, continents of swindle, worlds of head-fuckage that it’s almost impossible to recognize. They’ve bamboozled your mind to the point that you think crap put there by swindlers and rogues, desperate to keep you trapped in Swindleville is actually what you really desire or what you should desire. But the reason this hasn’t completely worked as someone once famously didn’t say is because: swindlers, rogues and clowns can fool your desire and motivation some of the time, but only until you recognize it and then punch them in the face… hard!
An alternative affirmation for the Common Man:
“My life is meaningful. Okay, my life isn’t that meaningful. In fact, in the grand scheme of the world my life is meaningless. Therefore I embrace my meaninglessness. I love my meaninglessness and share it with others so their lives too can be meaningless. I choose to do things in my life instead because I fancy it, it could be fun, I could help someone, make some serious dookie, or indeed, just for the hell of it!”
Are you , to society’s mind a squalid, waste of ‘decent’ folks’ oxygen, worthy only of a uncivilized kicking? Or are you deep in the pursuit of a life of unparalleled meaning? Lay your thing down in the comments below and let the jury decide…
