We as human beings have an innate propensity for cognitive dissonance which is a trademark of our ego, a psychological mechanism that has been with us since the beginning of time. Designed an crafted in our nature to ground us within this groundless existence.
This cognitive dissonance is responsible for hypocrisy, double crossing, manipulation, and anything of the like. This psychological aspect of our nature allows us to say one thing, do another, and feel another. Why? Because we as humans exist on three planes: physically, mentally, and spiritually.
The goal of this life is to experience the highest human experience possible and to help others do the same. Cognitive dissonance is only one thing that gets in the way of that. With cognitive dissonance as our modus operandi, we are unable to live a life we truly love because we are constantly misaligned with who we are and what we want.
Living a lie and seeking the truth puts an emotional and spiritual strain on us that kills us on the inside. That 9 to 5 job you really want to quit but feel like you can’t because you don’t know how you’re going to put food on the table, that family function you don’t want to go to but feel obligated because they guilted you into going, that controlling and psycho girlfriend you’re afraid to leave but know you should because you’re afraid of what she’s going to do.
All of these things are examples of you knowing the truth and living a lie. All of these things are an example of cognitive dissonance.
It is time you stop living in misalignment with who you are and what you want. It is time you stop breaking your neck for things and people that don’t care about your wellbeing. It is time you stop investing yourself into all kinds of things that have nothing to do wit what you want as an individual.
It is time you take your power back.
Alright, that’s my spiel. Til next week!
