Have You Been Conditioned By the Global Elite Desensitized To Your Surroundings

The Value of Happiness Is All that Matters!
Does it really?

Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Do you notice what these quotes have in common?


"How to be successful: Focus on your own shit."

"Let people do what they need to do to make them happy.  Mind your own business, and do what you need to do to make you happy."

"Give ourselves the space to focus our attention on the true source of our own happiness, success, and fulfillment... ourselves!"

"Just focus on pleasing yourself."

"Just focus on you and your own happiness."

"The most important thing is to enjoy your own life-to be happy-it's all that matters."


Subtly Conditioned by the Global Elite

We have become so conditioned by the capitalistic, perpetually developing, world controlled by the global elite cunningly dictating how we should think and behave, we don't even notice what is happening around us.  Just focus on yourself, rather than the world, and the elites lives will be just fine, and btw, you will be too as long as you are happy. Poverty, global warming, war, and the depletion of our resources is occurring at an astronomical level, but I guess that is okay as long as we focus on our own happiness that should change the direction of the rising stats. 

Being in a State of Denial 
   
Yes, I am being a bit harsh about this entire matter, but there is something just plain wrong when we focus solely on our own happiness.  We seem to be in a state of denial.  I very much understand that we must be healthy and happy in mind and body to be at our best to care for others around us and to be productive at work.  Yes, this is extremely important--to focus on our needs, values, desires, and goals so that we feel whole, complete, full of confidence, and best of all, physically and mentally well.  On the other hand, I see a self-centeredness, cockiness, and heads buried deep in the sand type of mentality about the world surrounding us; it goes back to that "be happy and everything will fall into place, " or "focus on what makes you happy and life will just miraculously fall into place," but this is so ill-perceived.

Values of the West

The Western world values are individualism, self-reliance, and self-happiness (besides capitalism & democracy); it is all about me, me, me, and me, not only in the realm of self-happiness but also in the financial world--the more, the better, and the happier I'll be.  At the same time, with globalization, it's becoming a world epidemic.

Old-School Values

What ever happened to caring for your neighbor, the sick at your community center, the homeless sitting next to the coffee shop, the abused child, the elderly, and the poor here and in other countries.  Many bypass these people like it is not our business, and I suppose if you live in the Western worlds, or the developed world, that is a true fact for many because, of course, focusing on your own happiness is the most important task of the day.   

Desensitized from the Violence and Deterioration of the World

Many have become so desensitized to the abused, the sick, the poor, the disabled, and the elderly around us, just as we have become desensitized to the violence in the media, pollution, and poverty.  These things, these people, don't phase us anymore!  Many are too busy wanting to make sure they are happy or wanting to make a million abandoning the more important factors in life--relationships and the world we live in.  

Conditioned to Consume!

We have become so conditioned by the capitalistic, perpetually developing, world controlled by the global elite cunningly dictating how we should think and behave (mass consumerism!), we don't even notice our surrounding world.  Just focus on yourself, rather than the world, and the elites lives will be just fine,and btw, yours will be too as long as you're happy.  Right!?!

Wake Up to Your Surroundings

Many more in society need to wake up to their surroundings--move out of their bubble, and really see what is happening in the world.  Get involved. Open up and read some scientific journals. Travel.  Whatever it takes to see where the world needs your support.
  


Wake Up to Live is about awareness in every aspect; it's about questioning the social norms; the things that feel uncomfortable to talk about.  Wake Up to Live is about eliminating the biases and seeing what is really true; although it is difficult to do, we must Wake Up to Live, and be responsible for our actions: the actions for ourselves and others.
