True Inspiration in the Age of Aquarius
Many people these days are not living their true authentic selves. They are dishonest with themselves in order to fit the program of the world, if I call one of my friends up and ask them how they are doing today. I want them to be honest with me if they are sleeping in the whole day, or if they are feeling down, and not say to me, “oh I’m busy, I am doing this and that”. I am not the thought police and I do not have a measuring stick. True inspiration comes when you are honest with yourself. True inspiration come in when you admit that you are tired. When you take the time out to come to yourself, catch up with yourself, and meet up with your senses. When you delve deep within yourself and relax. When your friend telephones you, and you can say without shame that you are resting the whole day. The brain begins reeling and is able to come up with ideas, what strategies to use, how you should do this or that, problem-solving, pointing out mistakes, and correcting them.
Some people are afraid to be authentic, they would rather follow trends and do what is popular, even if it means losing their integrity and their self-respect. Good authentic people who reflect the inner good that they have in their hearts create a just world. The person whose house that I come to and they say, excuse my dirty dishes. They are more relaxed in themselves. I am suspicious of people that sweep dirt under the rug, those kinds of people have a lot to hide and have all sorts of skeletons in their closets. Not many people are real these days, authenticity, inspiration, loyalty, virtues, integrity, and dignity is becoming a thing of yesterday.
When you let go of the guilt of resting when you need to rest, your brain is able to dip into lower Beta-Alfa-Theta-Delta waves states and allow ideas to come to the surface so that you can acknowledge them. You cannot achieve this state by staying on the higher beta level states of life too long where the stresses of the world reside. In this state the brain uses an unnecessary amount of energy sending signals to different parts of the body, Amanda Ramsdell (n.d.). Beta Wave Basics, Part 2.

Also, drinking coffee all the time to get in the motion of thought causes you not to have a more keener insight. Coffee takes you further away from lower Beta-Alfa-Theta-Delta waves states of calmness. You can end up being that jerk that wears a bad attitude, being passive-aggressive, and compensating for what you are lacking. Inspiration is like light rain on a sunny day, running through a forest and feeling like your flying, horseback riding through the green plains. You have to be willing to fall within yourself and not be afraid to rest and self-reflect because you will most definitely catch your inner purpose.
This Age of Aquarius has much to do with cleaning out your closet and letting go of fear. The very things that are going on in this world has something to do with people holding on to an old-world, old paradigms in order to cling on to that old world. You see old-world thinking coming out of the woodworks. You see repeated histories trying to relive itself. That wants to keep the old world and not expand consciousness. The wickedness in the heart of man is what creates evil in the world. Wicked people that cannot stand their guilt project it onto others using them as scapegoats to wash themselves clean of any wrongdoing, thinking that their privilege gives them the right to do so. Be appalled by wickedness. This evil has a way of spreading its iniquity and deceitfully making it a sense of normalcy. There is nothing normal about it.
Reality TV has taken the place of ethical thinking, people get more respect for trying to one-up someone, and fighting over who has the biggest ego. In a world where loyalty is decreasing, people frowning down on integrity but are more respected for being fake. Platonic love and human companionship begin to fade away. When the world kills inspiration, pride and privilege take the place of virtue, and there is no knowledge of a moral compass to draw from. Then when children are born, they get confused and think, therefore,” this is the world as I see it, I must learn from it and fit the program.” When there is not a moral compass to draw thought from, they draw from manufactured theory's that become trends, and the manufactured trends become their guiding compass and their God.
When inspiration becomes crushed the artist struggles in society. The artist, the poet, the writer, and the singer, will struggle to survive. This is because the corruption of the world has trickled down into the depths of society. John F. Kennedy said when power corrupts, poetry cleanses. When you find yourself having mental blocks, and writer’s block it is because you are traumatized and numb from the stress of the world. You watch the news and see perilous times, you see people in life around you suffering from sickness, worry, or threats of homelessness. You become overwhelmed over the next move that you are going to make while being weighed down by the anxieties of your environment and the world. When you are having anxieties, mental, or writer’s block, you have to fill the void of your numbness. Fill the void of your numbness so that the world's anxieties do not fill you. Do this by writing down how you feel so that you can break through the wall that the corruption of the world is trying to put there. Express yourself in every way possible, to reason with your soul. Because only then you will begin to come to.
If we want to overcome these perilous times. We have to speak and think in a transcendentalist way. Speak art, poetry, sing, and transcend the madness. Become Shakespearean, Platonian, Socratesian, etc., or purely transiently in your own way. When you express your soul and pour out your heart you become the change in the world, It is the passionate human soul that needs to express itself so deeply in this age of Aquarius.
