This is a continuation of the last post. So if you haven’t read it I recommend that you do.
As I left off I asked you to think about what happened on the tragic day of September 11, 2001. I asked you to recall happened that day.
Most people will have the same “official” story of what had occurred that day, But I’m not specifically interested in that. To prove my point that people will believe almost anything that is told to them, I ask you, how do you know the story of what happened that day?
Were you told what had happened that day? Was the official story about 9/11 narrated to you? More than likely, if you still believe in the story that majority of the people out there believe, you probably heard it from the news media.
Now think about it, you believe in what you were told because it came from a so called “reliable”, “authoritative”, and “trustworthy” source of “experts” and “reporters”.
Did you do any critical thinking of what had happened that day? Did you do any due diligence or look into it a little more? It is likely that you just took in what you were told by the news medias and believed it.
What is there not to believe?
Now, I’ll present to you a video documentary first exposed to me by a Hawaii Mobile Mechanic that I had service my car. As it woke me up, I’m sure it will get you thinking twice about what you believe… which is probably a lot of things.
A lesson on myths: People will believe almost anything they are told.
As I’ve written on my previous blog post, people will believe in almost anything you tell them.
Without doing much or any due diligence, people are usually prone to take other people’s word as fact. This is a very important fact to keep in mind when reading or hearing about the “myths” of the world.
To avoid being a hypocrite, I don’t want you to take my word for it. So, I’ll push you to do a little thinking for yourself. We are people so we are a part of whom I’m talking about right now. So we’ll prove to ourselves that we do believe in majority of what we are told.
With myths, or anything for the matter, we usually believe what we are told or what we hear. Rarely does anyone do any due diligence or follow up research on anything they hear, read, or watch.
It is naturally inherited because communication within our ancestors was based on trust within the tribe to communicate stories, dangers, lessons, etc. With that trust they had to believe whatever they were told. No one back then didn’t have to worry about any cynical ulterior motives by the messengers, storytellers, teachers, etc. Everything was based on survival and the larger the group was the better chances they had to survive. Little to no motives to tell “false flag” stories to manipulate people were existent. Messages were usually honest and clean.
Let’s start out first in our journey in demystifying myths with words, the hidden meaning(s) behind words that is.
In order to understand certain myths and/or stories, you must first understand some of the origins and meanings that the vocabulary being used in the myths/stories.
Words are basically symbols. And symbols have different meanings depending on the contexts they are being used in and the perception of the user. But, words and symbols do have a fundamental meaning to them. To understand what these either myths or ancient stories mean, we must first understand the origins of words that they use and in their context.
Once you understand the origins and “hidden meanings” behind the vocabulary in certain stories and myths, you will begin to notice the deeper meanings behind them. Being able to do this will help demystify the myths and you can come up with your own opinions in what to believe or not.
You’ve heard the stories when you were young. You continue to watch movies about rooted from them. But very few people know the connections we have with them.
Myths. Are they just stories or is there some deeper meaning to them?
Myths are actually more than just a deep meaning, some of them are actually connected to our reality today, literally. Some myths are live to this day and our current reality is affected by them. Unfortunately, some of the effects are cynical and dark. That is the reason why we are creating this blog.
We will strive to demystify the myths and show you what they really mean. We also will look to “connect the dots” a bit to reveal how some myths are more, as some say, than just fairy tale stories.
Myths are myths for a reason, we will look to demystify some of them so that you may come to your own conclusion of whether they are just stories or not…
