The Rebel is an idea.
The Rebel is what’s emerging beneath the surface. It’s a being, a character you create to replace the old you, the one mired by layers of conditioning and untruth by the world and its media and technology and its ignorant people.
You slowly rebel against the world until you begin to uncover the REAL YOU beneath it all.
It’s the heart of what I made this site about.
Beneath it all…beneath all beliefs and systems of thinking that you subscribe to.
You read things on the net and they make sense. They seem to be true. But do not actually know and they provide comfort where you have none.
When you follow a system to think for you, then you have rules and righteous purpose. You have concepts and ideals, such as “saving the world” or changing it to your own vision of utopia, or being too honest, when honesty is not always a virtue. You become consumed with ego or “respect.”
These things are all only illusions, designed to distract you from trusting your own intuition and true self.
Beneath all the awkward, casual social interactions. Beneath the light, airy, surface world that everyone pretends is real.
Beneath it is the underworld.
It is a red river, a current of distaste.
You are not satisfied with the status quo. You are uncomfortable with your place in it. You want to push the limits.
But to be an effective rebel, you must have a REASON. It can’t just be for guts and glory.
Those things will never build your soul.
You’ve got to have a selfish reason to push yourself through the barriers of the System. Your goals, the things you really desire, those are enough at first. You take ahold of them and then you FIGHT.
But fighting wears you down after a while, and you run the risk of turning into the enemy.
Deep down, despite all you’ve been told, despite the hard knocks you’ve taken, you are something special.
There’s a power in the background, awaiting your total surrender. It calls to you. It tugs at you like a nightmare every damn day and every time you fail to do what you want to do. What you set out to do.
This thing is NOT the thing that you fight.
This thing is the Rebel.
The Rebel is your emerging soul.
Beneath it all, beneath this human shell, you have a heart of rebellion.
You rebel in order to find your soul, the origin of yourself. And then you hold onto that power and don’t let anybody take it from you. And you don’t let imposters like your old self take it either.
You are a rebel to the core.
