I don’t want to alarm you, but people, all of them- are just fucking crazy. From the Cultist to the guy who wants to escape to the forest and live like a hermit; they are all off in the head. I know this from experience, I am a people and live with people. Most of us are a little off. We have a belief that holds us back or pushes us forward. We all suffer from being raised by other crazy people, which perpetuates the crazy. On that we also pass a bit of the craziness down generation to generation.
Just to be clear, I am not talking about mental illness. I am talking about how we move and interpret the world. We each have a unique way of seeing and doing things. We are all a little crazy. From the cat lady to the entrepreneur, we all have ideas about how the world should work and we live using those thoughts. We all interpret life from a perspective that has been shaped by multiple sources. Our perspective is what we deem to be reality. We have the power to change our perspective, to get new information, to analyze what we think about the world. Mental illness as far as I know is more like your brain turning against itself, which requires professional help.
For us not suffering from mental illness, we can change. We do not have to remain trapped in our perspective. We can take the time to listen, think about what we heard, and then watch to see if it is true. Oh, I forgot the main thing, we have to listen to different voices. We have to think and feel from someone else’s perspective. In that ours grows and changes. But with that change, we slowly get a little closer to reality. At least the reality of what it is like to be human. Our craziness over time comes together to make a harmony. We find people we are in sync with and make music, we make life, we make civilization.
