People throw the word “extreme” or “extremism” around these days, but do they really know what it actually meant in essence? The word itself just refers to something that is significantly enough outside someone’s expectation. In and of itself, it has no bearing on the quality of the actual thing in question. When it comes to so-called “extremism”, in the sense of something is being outright violent and evil in motive or practice, then the problem is with the violence and the evil. People should call violence and evil, and whatever else, by their name.
“Extremism”, in the etymological sense of what the word “extreme” actually means, as well as regarding how people generally use it without knowing its actual meaning, it’s just something significantly more different or/and intense than someone is accustomed to. Judging the qualities of something, based on whether or not you like it, or how similar or different it is to what you expect or have grown familiar with, is a fallacy.
Things are to be judged on their own merit, not what people believe about them, or how few or many of them do.
Often times, you’ll also find that “extreme” is just a word that people throw around, when something is far enough outside their level of incarnate awareness of manifested comprehension, at a particular point in their lives.
To those who of us who always look to do what is right, to know ourselves as both individual conscience and infinite consciousness, we realize that there is no such thing as “extreme”. There is always room for growth. There is always room for evolution. There is always more to learn, remember, manifest and do, than what any individual does at any point in so-called “time-space”. There is infinitely more to everything. There is also infinitely more to know, than one might think they know, at any point in so-called time-space.
Viewing anything as “extreme” is a crutch in one’s journey of evolution. To a paraplegic or to a lazy-ass couch potato, parkour would seem “extreme”. To the parkour guy, nimbly and athletically moving about the place is pretty casual. It’s what they do. To the blind and ignorant man or woman, the concept of “light” may seem “extreme”, but to those of us who see it and live it, it’s pretty fuckin’ casual.
To someone who sees light, but doesn’t see different realities and realms veyond the perception of what people call “light”, the idea of omnidimeversal (omnidimensional and omniversal) existence and veyond may seem to be “extreme”, but to those of us who are aware and live it consciously, it’s more natural than breathing.
The man who erroneously denied the idea of humans soaring the skies as “extreme”, was not the kind of man who would invent an airplane. The man who is blinded by ego and dismisses other endeavors than whatever boosts their addiction to their vanity or “comfort”, is not the kind of man who would be a sage.
To live life fully, and more than that, to grow and to evolve, one is to excel and elevate one’s self; to make casual what the dead or half-living erroneously view as “extreme”. Whatever you do, do it fully and utterly, for choosing to do so, and for the sake of doing so.
Spirituality, wisdom, creativity, intuition, intelligence, everything that has to do with the good and conscious aspects of who I and we always and already are, not only naturally imply, but intrinsically involve, as well as intimately, infinitely and essentially mean to always grow and evolve, and express more and more of who I and we genuinely are.
So, therefore be more than “extreme”, and far, far more than that. Let the half-assers half-live their lives, and the dead plod about in their decrepit puddles of decay. Their poor choices are their own, and their mistakes their own to learn from. Of course, they and anyone can rise above and move on, if they so choose.
Either way, our choices are always our own to make, and if you want to genuinely live without being attached or addicted to the illusions of your body and “life”, you need to detach yourself from the world, yet at the same time be involved in it; but without being blinded by anything.
Always dare. Always rebel. Always defy.
Nobody and nothing has a “higher claim” (nor any claim, whatsoever) to our lives than we do.
There can be no “chosen” ones, and there are no “chosen” ones. Only I and we can save ourselves and only I and we are responsible for doing so. All pain and suffering are always self-inflicted, and all evolution and elevation are always self-facilitated. By us, from us, with ourselves, individually, infinitely and unlimitedly, as well as in every way whatsoever, and veyond the very notion and concept of “ways”.
Freedom is never given. Freedom is never taken.
I and we are all and always free and freedom , imagination, will and intent…. infinity, unlimitedness and veyond… among other things…….
Everything is always a choice, and the choice is always ours to make.
