Are we “woke” yet?

Question from the Internet:

“Is our society too “woke”?”

In truth, we are not “woke” at all. What they call “woke” at the moment is just another attempt of our inherently self-serving, self-justifying ego to assert control over others, to continue our usual way of life, ruthlessly, succeed, survive at the expense of others.

Being truly “woke” means an unpleasant but extremely important, honest recognition, that the only person that needs to change, improve, upgrade oneself is me.

We are all born with an individualistic, exploitative ego that “realizes itself” through overcoming, manipulating, controlling, exploiting others. We do this all the time — knowingly, unknowingly and in varying degrees, each according to their inner nature, individual qualities.

As long as we keep blaming, trying to correct, cancel, revenge others without changing, correcting ourselves, each new ideology, attempt to change society will cause the same explosions, hate, war as before.

There is only one way to change, correct the world: by changing, correcting, upgrading ourselves.

Until we awaken to this truth and accept it, implement a ready-made, purposeful remedy through a unique, practical education, we are not “woke” at all, we are still dreaming our inherently selfish, subjective, egoistic nightmare where we all destroy each other.
