The things you own end up owning you

My favorite Fight Club quote:
"The things you own end up owning you"

Why do I love Fight Club so much? - Because of the attitude. FC has this energy, it opens your eyes and tells you to wake up and be alive, really alive! It tells you to not care about stupid things and just be cool about life the way it is. Enjoy it, feel it, but not depend on it. Be free. Free yourself from yourself...

Stop and look around yourself for a moment. Are you a relaxed person, are you cool and calm or do you get upset because of "important" things? Wherever I look I see desperate, nervous and frustrated people. Not everywhere, but it's a majority. Why is this? Why can't they relax and enjoy the moment, why are they under so much pressure? Why?! What the hell are these people thinking?

We are constantly running around in circles, like idiots. Go to your cubicle, work 8 hours, go home, watch TV (like an idiot), eat crap(fast) food (that probably makes you stupider), go to sleep... Then again... wake up, go to work, work work work (like a rat, no like a slave), make someone else rich. Go home. Eat, watch TV, sleep. Work work work. What's the point?! All the time... watch out what you say, watch out! Don't look at that girl, be nice, be good, say thank you, do this do that. Be nice, be polite, be "good" (translation: Stand in line. Don't be different. Be a robot. Follow rules and be a good slave).

Why is society telling us what to do all the time? Are they making robots out of us? Well... yes. Not just robots, but SLAVES. "Slaves with white collars" as Tyler Durden would say :) Think about this for a moment... Are you not angry? Don't you feel a rush of anger in your body, don't you want to destroy? Anger, hatred, frustration, negativity, sadness, weakness, self pity... that is what they wants us to feel. Why? Hahaha... well, easy :) THEY WANT YOU TO BUY THINGS! That's why. They want you to be sad, they want you to be frustrated and negative. They want you to suffer and feel miserable about your life and yourself. They want this so you will go to a store and buy your happiness (temporary happiness of course). Sad? Buy a new car! (Yeah great You buy it. you're happy for a month and then what? You're sad again. Buy something else - society tells you...).

"We're consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don't concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy's name on my underwear. Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra."

Do you want to end up like this guy?

It's not funny. It's sad. Well, funny too :) I almost laughed myself to death. Just imagine this guy, millions of people WANT TO DO THE SAME THING HE DID. The only difference is that he had the guts to do it. This is Fight Club in real life. And all I can say to this man is - respect. I'm not recommending anyone to do this of course, but just think about it. Do you want to end up like this guy? I Guess not.

BS!! We need to wake up and evolve. We need to open our eyes and see the truth. You don't need that to be happy, happiness comes from within, not from the outside. Remember you CAN be happy. We've been brainwashed. I'll talk about the Law of Attraction later in other articles.

"The things you own end up owning you" How much time do you spend on the internet every day? How much time do you spend watching TV? Think about this Fight Club quote... Do you own your TV or does the TV own you? Who is the boss?

Wake up. Life is short, don't waste it...
More Fight Club quotes later.
