I know this is old, like in 1999 kind of old but I feel it’s still relatively relative to this day.
We’ve all seen the Matrix Trilogy and we’ve all thought about how it would be if we were in it, and then we’d laugh off the idea and continue with our average lives. Now I’m not saying giant random machines rule the real world and we are currently laying down in some sludge acting like rechargeable batteries, what I’m saying is like the people in the movies (the average okes) are we not also living past the true potential of our lives, abilities and purpose?
As it took some deep introspection for Neo to understand humanity and it’s purpose we also need to stand still sometimes and see if we are living the ‘real’ life or just continuing a measly existence. I don’t think we should try and ‘take over the world’ with new radical, new & idealistic ideas, I just think it would be nice if we could start making a difference in the places we function like school or work, maybe even in the mall when we greet a stranger.
So what are you going to do to start making an above average contribution to your immediate surroundings? I think a good place to start would be to take the RED pill. 😉
