When WE speak of our knowledge of information, can you claim it to be YOUR own? Can your belief in what you say, be interpreted by others as knowledge? If I tell you how plants grow, can they be believed, without me having a degree in botany?
If I quote the words, writings and thoughts of another, can I truly call them my own? In what capacity do you think that YOUR word is true? Can we as beings of this planet have the ability to have individual thought? Without school? Without parenting?
When we are born, do we have this ability? And over time, be taught not to use it? Not on purpose, but by repetition of the teaching of those who taught us in the past. Can we form an original thought? Something to call our own. Not just intuition, but thought that can be expressed, and understood by another.
Can we as people/beings/spirits actually try to go back to a time when a link, quote, writing, book, movie, t.v, isn't a needed resource to show one another a form of us as a people that can take a more personal look at our true feelings?
I think that trying to use this form of communication, can lead to less, hatred, bigotry, misunderstandings, and we would look at each other as people who can speak from the heart, from experience, and with the utmost honesty.
Have we entrusted others to do our thinking for us, and left us nothing but a yes or no answer? Can only scientists talk about science? Or can a guy in his basement have input based on his findings without being ignored.
I am writing this for some people who can genuinely approach subject matter without the use of the so called knowledge of others and still be heard. At what point in time did we need policing of our thoughts and opinions? We have ignored our hurdle of obscurity of original thought and gave "the ones who would know better than you" the title.
We gave these titles of "knowing" to scholars, archeologists, preachers, politicians, media, and even the internet, or anyone who can get some t.v air time.
Do you think that what has been passed to us as knowledge is the whole truth? Do you think that doctors don't have a better way to treat cancer? Do you think that NASA doesn't know that there are other beings in the Universe? Do you think that religion doesn't have a better version of the bible? They gave us what they wanted us to know, and left us to divide ourselves based on the knowledge that we don't know, to keep us looking the other way.
So I say lets take it back. Lets take back our voices, our opinions, our hearts, and share what "the ones who know better" have tried to take from us, OUR IDENTITIES!
OUR ONENESS, OUT TRUTH!! Thank you for taking the time to read.
