Nonconformity and living booze free

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music”
-Nietzsche

I LOVE Jason Silva and he is my newest addiction 😉 He creates short video’s that are philosophical and challenge your thinking called Shots of Awe and you can subscribe on Youtube.  This is his latest one which is fabulous!

 

 

So much of this journey, the sober journey, feels non-conformist.  It feels like everyone in the UK drinks and so you feel marked out as different when you stop drinking booze.

I am so motivated by this quote:

We are all free to create our own reality, but it’s only when we are bold enough to decondition our thinking, to transcend … the reality tunnel — this linguistic and conceptual and symbolic framework that constructs reality, this “animatrix” pulled in front of your eyes — blinding you from ecstatic visions of what might be behind those walls. We are larvae who haven’t turned themselves into butterflies yet. ~Jason Silva

I just love this!  What do you think?
