You’ve heard the saying before… “There are two types of people in this world; winners and losers, which one are you?” I’d like to agree with this saying, but this comes from an egoic place, which I find really smart to separate myself from. I’d prefer to say there are three types of people that roam this planet: Brainwashed, Dreamers, and the Awakened.
Before we get into these three types of people, a book I’d recommend you read, that will change your life forever and goes further in depth about the ego is, A New Earth Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle. Also, in previous blog post, Defining Your Life’s Purpose, we elaborate more on this from our perspective.
Now back to the three key people I was discussing. I say key, because there are many types of people roaming around, so I decided to narrow things down to three main categories. Allow me to explain, and feel free to let us know which category best describes you.
First we have the Brainwashed, also known as Sheep, or your modern day slave. This group of people are the ones who have been heavily influenced by the System, which breaks my heart because it’s not entirely their fault. They just dont know any better. They have become the perfect “employee”, from the training they got from going to school. That is where the system get’s you, when you’re young and vulnerable, and parents don’t encourage a change because they are caught up in the rat race themselves. A perfect “product” to reproduce and keep this crazy cycle going.
This category of people has dreams and potential to see them through, but may be too afraid to go after their dreams, because they have bee taught that “achieving dreams or anything that brings about enlightenment, abundance, prosperity, or freedom is wrong, and is forbidden.” Just writing that last sentence hurts my heart tremendously. What ends up happening with this group of people is, they end up settling for 9-5 jobs and strongly dislike the life they live. They become very bitter or depressed. The world becomes a dark, gloomy place that looks like Gotham City from Batman. Only difference is, there is no Batman to save them.
This group ends up going on with life thinking and wondering “what if.” If this sounds like you, don’t fret, there is still hope. The key is to look Deep Within and search for the Light that once shone so bright. Take off the “blind fold” to truly see and allow the rays of the sun to shine on your face, warming your soul. This is where Self Education comes into play, along with seeking out Awakened people to help guide you with this shifting – breaking free of the shackles and chains that tie you down.
Second group of people are the Dreamers, also known as the Brave, or the Inspired. The people that fit into this group are far and few. This group may have temporarily been semi-influenced by the system at one point in their life, but their tenacious energy was too strong for the system to get a firm grip. Dreamers are game changers. I’m sure you’ve heard of some of these people; Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Nikola Tesla, Li Ka Shing, Martin Luther King Jr., Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, and the list goes on. Other people such as; athletes, musicians, actresses and actors all fit into this category as well.
Anybody who is living out their dreams, all fit into this category, and are the Influencers of our beautiful world. The only difference between someone who works 9-5, and Elon Musk or any influencer, would be their level of determination and ability to not succumb to the ways of the doubters – choosing to rise above, no matter the challenges.
Now this brings me to the third and final group of people, the Awakened, also known as Spiritually Aware, Conscious, Indigo Children, Crystal Children, Light Warriors, Light Healers, Reiki/Energy Healers, Free Spirits, or Shaman. This lovely, peaceful group of people, are the ones who have been sent here to heal the world and humanity. The awakened have a special connection to things unseen and are one with all. Awakened beings also have a special understanding of who we truly are, which is Energy in Form.
The Awakened bring spiritual guidance to those who are lost, and vibe with those of similar energy, creating an aura of enlightened energy which can be felt miles away. This is by far a very select few, and they are here to restore balance. You may have heard of some of these wonderful Be-ings such as Jesus, Buddha, Quan Yin, Moses, Lao Tzu, Confucius, Rumi, Wayne W. Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, and the select few that aren’t as well known. Everyone can become an Awakened light source only if you open yourself up to this beautiful possibility – after all, this is our Life’s Purpose.
A great way to achieve consciousness (awakening) is through meditation and yoga. You could always take a stroll to your nearest book store and find a copy of “There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem” by Wayne W. Dyer. This would serve as a small catalyst to help with a mental shift. There are many other wonderful books out there that can offer similar guidance. If you don’t want to go to the book store, you can always find a beautifully insightful blog, by the 1Cent-1Life team, which resonates specifically with you. Either way, you win!
Brainwashed, Dreamers, and the Awakened are the three classes I’ve come to realize there are. There are no “winners” or “losers”, just three categories we all fit into. Knowing this now, you can determine accordingly, which class you currently fit into, and which one you’d like to Level Up to. The choice is now Yours.
