The World is Like a Ride

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park.  And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are.  And the ride goes up and down and round and round.  It has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored , and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while.  Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question – is this real, or is this just a ride?  And other people have remembered, and they come back to us.  They say, ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride…’…It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.”
