There are many things in life that require our conscious effort to manage. Such things like, anger, bad habits or infidelity require our conscious effort to manage, cease or choose to do the right thing when we are presented with them.
If one has a problem with anger, the problem does not simply go away one day, one has to manage their response every single time they are presented with an episode that one usually handles with anger.
An example would be a wo/man that has resorted to anger most of their life when they feel disrespected or when they desire to get their point across. When such a person is presented with an event where they are disrespected, they literally have to take extra steps to figure out how to handle the situation in a non-angry way.
Similarly, persons with addiction may utilize some bad habit as a way to deal with disrespect or merely as a way to feel relaxed, comfortable or even more social. When such a person is presented with an event where they want to manage anger, feel relaxed, comfortable or be more social, they literally have to take extra steps to figure out how to handle the situation without resorting to fake moods that they are able to create by injecting, snorting, smoking, drinking, chewing, eating chemicals into their body.
No one is better than anyone else. Some people have a bad habit of talking down to others so that they can get the synthetic chemical rush that comes along with making others feel less than them. Others may use chemicals to expedite feelings and emotions into their body.
In the world as we know it today, the majority of doctors know and understand the dynamics of society. The majority of politicians understand that America consists of those who "have" and those who "do not have" and this is why drugs are rampant in every class.
Often times, prescriptions set the atmosphere for one to become dependent on chemicals for their feelings because oppression is such that it is merely impossible for one to create such feelings on their own. If it's not the bills it's the dirty looks and the feeling of being bound by "something" that you simply cannot name.
That "something" that is difficult to name is mostly freedom as deep down, we all understand that someone else is running the show while the majority of us strive to keep our heads above water.
Privilege and oppression are two contrasting tones that set positions and boundaries for a lifetime. Those "sets" will not change unless the majority of persons takes their head out of the clouds long enough to be a part of the change.
Nothing is ever as good as the real thing. Synthetic emotions take the place of what we would feel if we had the life we now forget to even dream about. One may beg to differ and argue that they want to incorporate synthetic emotions even when they have that contentment but that is only because we are all so oppressed that we cannot truly recognize what real living, real happiness and real contentment really means.
We are so far removed from where we should be as a society that most of us laugh at the idea of thinking we have the power to change. While most of us laugh at our potential, the remainder agree to wear the blindfold that is hidden in the idea that something or someone will one day come and make it all better, make it all go away.
Creation is real, yes and it lies inside each and every single one of us. We are all bits and pieces of the whole, the all. In realizing that we are all bits and pieces of the one, we can have an understanding of how far removed we are.
It is not impossible for us to all get on the same wavelength, just as we have masses of persons who believe that something or someone else will change things, we can collectively began to understand that the something or someone is within us and activate our power to change.
It merely takes a conscious effort. We are all waiting on one another.
