Thinking is necessary to waking up. We must think to wake up. We must think “wake up”.
In a way, the time to think, the time to watch and choose our thoughts, makes thinking this highly valuable commodity only accessed through time.
The average man doesn’t know who he is or what he thinks. He’s under the influence of all the business around him. He’s lumped himself into the common lumps of everyone else. Standing out takes time and thought, but he’s too busy for thinking. He’s too bombarded with thoughts that are forced upon him. Norms that are hammered into him on film, television, media, billboards, and guys dressed up like sandwiches. So much stuff that he has no room left to hear what he wants to hear, see what he wants to see, feel what he wants to feel, think what he wants to think.
With every little thing that keeps him more and more busy, he becomes less of himself. The systems at play with in a beautiful world are often stupid and inadequate. Most of the time they leave the innocent buried under the weight of the corrupt. Profound philosophy and a mere lack of comprehension share a fine line.
A man with time to think and imagine has an advantage over other people. He has the time to imagine a world he wants to live in. Imagining a life he wants. Thinking on his own thoughts. We must, no matter what, make time to think, to think “wake up, wake up, wake up.”
