Are you asleep?


  1. “Most of the time, we see only what we want to see, or what others tell us to see, instead of really investigate to see what is really there. We embrace illusions only because we are presented with the illusion that they are embraced by the majority. When in truth, they only become popular because they are pounded at us by the media with such an intensity and high level of repetition that its mere force disguises lies and truths. And like obedient schoolchildren, we do not question their validity and swallow everything up like medicine. Why? Because since the earliest days of our youth, we have been conditioned to accept that the direction of the herd, and authority anywhere — is always right.” Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
  2. “We awaken by asking the right questions. We awaken when we see knowledge being spread that goes against our own personal experiences. We awaken when we see popular opinion being wrong but accepted as being right, and what is right being pushed as being wrong. We awaken by seeking answers in corners that are not popular. And we awaken by turning on the light inside when everything outside feels dark.” Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
  3. “It is what it is because you let it be so.” Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
  4. “A conscious human is driven by their conscience, not popular opinion.” Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
