Wake Up!

This video is incredible, for several reasons. Here’s two:

1. It’s been painstakingly, beautifully crafted by an independent film company named Whitestone Motion Pictures. This is just one of their lovely films. Check out the sidebar to visit their site.

2. The subject matter of this song and accompanying video really sticks out to me right now, because I’ve been meditating on what it means to be free.

Freedom really is an incredible person, place, or thing. We (and by we, I’m generally referring to human beings living in The [ideological] West and participating in its culture) seem to spend an incredible amount of energy enslaving ourselves physically, emotionally/psychologically, and spiritually.

How, exactly, do we become free from it all? Is it possible? I have so many things I want to do with my life! Why do I spend so much time selling myself, so cheaply, for things that, ultimately, will never satisfy me?

Will it take a Zombie Apocalypse to get me to detach from living so half-heartedly? To live my life with some single-minded PURPOSE?

“My decision to be free or not to be, reveals the magnitude of my freedom. ”
(Ludwig Feuerbach – “Essence of Christianity”)

Anyway, more on this later. Meanwhile, this video is cool.
