“The Adventure” by Angels and Airwaves is a gorgeous song, and there’s so much power and truth in the lyrics. About ten years ago, Tom Delonge had a spiritual awakening, and moved away from Blink 182 to form Angels and Airwaves. It’s no coincidence that Tom’s reputation has been tarnished and torn apart after leaving Blink 182…
I wanna have the same last dream again,
The one where I wake up and I’m alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
I’m the first to know.
My dearest friends,
Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that’s dead shall be re-grown,
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.
Hello, here I am,
And here we go, life’s waiting to begin.
What does he mean “life’s waiting to begin?” I’m currently living my life. We are all living beings.
Yes, but are you experiencing what it means to be alive?
Negative forces have created a program that prevents us from discovering our truth. When we are in the program, we are distanced from our Self, and we subconsciously orient our minds toward negativity. The program has caused us to accept aspects of our reality that are preventing us from experiencing a full, exciting life. From the moment we were born, we have been exposed to the program that tricks our mind into developing our everyday routine and repetitive, structured thought patterns.
We talk ourselves out of doing the things we dream of. We tell ourselves the same excuses over and over again. We obsess over the fear, anger, sadness, and paranoia in our lives instead of celebrating joy.
If you feel that there is more to your life than what you are experiencing now, if you fantasize about moving or traveling, if you want to change careers, if you want to give up aspects of yourself that masks your authentic, genuine Self, your life is waiting to begin.
You do not have to settle for less than what you know you deserve. You are in more control over your life than you know and more than you give yourself credit for.
If you dream of becoming a full time artist, musician, or writer, telling yourself that it’s impossible to make money in those industries is one of the biggest lies you’re telling yourself. There is a significant amount of artists, musicians, and writers with successful careers, so why can’t you have a successful career doing what you love? Why can’t you?
The program doesn’t want you to believe in yourself. The program wants you to suppress your dreams so that you live in fear and anguish. The program wants to drain you of your energy while you’re at the job you don’t feel validated at. The program wants to strip you of your joy and your ability to experience being alive.
You are in complete control of your life. It all begins by addressing the messages in your head. Where are these messages coming from? Are they coming from your authentic, genuine Self or the program? You aren’t here to stay in your comfort zone. You’re here to take risks that challenge and excite you. Messages telling you to remain hidden in your comfort zone are from the program too. Your authentic, genuine Self wants to be set free, without expectations and inhibitions.
Take that chance, because you won’t regret it. And ask yourself: what does it mean for me to experience being alive?
