Sheeple does not automatically mean asleep

The term “sheeple” is often used in a derogatory context but does the lack of awareness automatically imply the person is lacking the correct insight or knowledge?

What if each person has their own path to follow and therefore may not necessarily need all (or any) answers this time around. What if life is cyclic in nature like the ouroboros?…

How do we even know that what we know is contextually correct? Any label we give to others has duality by default. By claiming someone is asleep means that someone else has to be awake. This is an ego-enhancing mechanism so subject to wide-ranging issues.

Truths are sneaky things. They like to lurk behind connotations and labels so by accepting any knowledge as a belief you by default will then start rejecting the opposite knowledge, it’s human nature. At that point one has to wonder how two people on opposite ends, but both behaving the same way, can claim the other is asleep or a sheeple.

Knowledge should be like water in a river that continuously flows. Have ideas, not beliefs, for beliefs will slow down or stop the river of knowledge. Accept that you may know nothing and simply be happy being you. Those that seek will ask. Smile kindly at those who are happy as they are. Let each path take us where we need to go x


My life has been filled with synchronicity since my teenage years. I have always wanted answers to the toughest questions and it has only been in the last few years that the answers I sought have been answered.

  1. Fancy meeting you here, Simon. 🙂
    Wonderful website and blog!

    Yesterday I was just ruminating on whether or not ignorance really is bliss. I believe sometimes it’s necessary, depending on your current life path. Before I stopped abusing my body with chemicals, embarking on a knowledge quest would have been at best futile and possibly even harmful for me. It seems to me that people seek when they are ready.

    My grandmother told me once that extremism is a young person’s affliction. As you get older and witness more of the human experience you come to understand seeing things in black and white is pure hubris. Of course, some people never move beyond rigid thinking, but in large part I think she’s right. Ideals and personal truths are important, but not at the peril of empathy and open-mindedness.

    Anyhow, I love reading your thoughts…keep ’em coming!


    1. It is very nice to hear from you again and thanks for the kind words!!

      Your grandmother sounds like a wise women, I think we would have got on well 🙂
