I had to open this article with this incredibly relatable quote from the Matrix: “You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.”
This was my childhood. It probably was or is your childhood or adulthood if you are reading this. That feeling like “this can’t be it.” That feeling that leads us to search for something beyond our everyday world and asks us to question who we truly are and why we are here. The challenge is, our world is designed to stop this search. Whether it’s societal pressures, forms of religion that put everything outside of us, pop culture or the very basic need to have to work constantly to survive, we collectively struggle to go deeper within our reality.
This often leaves us feeling unfulfilled or anxious, depressed and upset. It might lead us to search for meaning or wealth entirely outside of ourselves. Trying anything to develop a real connection or to find purpose. We collectively feel money or fame might fulfill us. Maybe it will be success or building a company. Maybe it’s finding that perfect partner or going on an epic trip. We search and search for that peace and struggle to find it because it is not outside of ourselves, it’s within us.
After I began stepping off the beaten path I began to ask these big questions.
Who am I? Why am I here? Is there more to life than school, work, buy a house, have a family, retire and die? Has our world ended up this way due to a manipulating force? Or did it happen naturally?
The more I explored these things spiritually, mentally and physically, the more I began to see what was truly going on. I put the entire journey into a film called The Collective Evolution III: The Shift (you can watch it free at that link). Simply, there is a mass shift in consciousness happening on our planet right now, and we’re all part of it. The world we experience today, will not be recognizable into our future -in the most beautiful way. I explored this scientifically, cosmically, through ancient cultures and by looking at what’s happening on our planet at this very moment in the film.
Have you been feeling the need to explore your emotions, feelings, anxieties, challenges etc? Do you feel like you want to align to your passions and purpose? Do you feel as though the world you see today doesn’t fully resonate with you? This is all part of a push to looking deeper within ourselves. I went through this exact same journey and there are millions experiencing the same. I created a challenge designed to explore these questions and aspects of ourselves called The 5 Days of You Challenge. You can take the challenge here if you feel drawn to it.
All that said, we’re living in very interesting times right now and MANY can feel it. I truly believe that instead of turning a blind eye to what our world and our inner feelings are showing us, it’s time to face it straight on and explore it. This is partly why I love this short film below.
The Lie We All Live
The video touches upon various topics that we’ve covered in detail on CE. It was created by Spencer Cathcart and his message is quite clear, it’s time to wake up to the lie we’re living and start shifting our experience.
Watch it, share it and inspire others to begin questioning thing a little more deeply. It will truly lead to a better world.
