The Wake-Up

"What is... real? How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain." - The Matrix (1999)

We are all on auto-pilot in some way, shape or form, blindly accepting the "reality" and the programming with which we've been indoctrinated. 

If I were to offer you a red pill to fully wake up, see yourself, your thoughts, your decisions, and everyone around you in perfect clarity, would you do it?

Or would you take the blue pill to stay blissfully ignorant, asleep at the wheel, plowing through potholes oblivious that there's another road entirely?

We all travel 'round and 'round on the same unconscious loops every day. 

Work, money, relationships, and even how you organize your sock drawer - all of these are informed by the programming we've been receiving since birth. 

Question... Everything.

Family, friends, school, religion, media, government, corporate America.

If you've never questioned or renegotiated the primary relationships in your life, then you're probably asleep at the wheel in some, if not all, of them. 

The most integral relationship to renegotiate is the one with yourself and your thoughts. 

Welcome to The Wake-Up - a blog, a Youtube channel, and (soon) an online store.

I'll be sharing my own "wake-ups" and hopefully inspiring a few of yours. Below is my latest:

Cheers to the #redpill!
