After a 25 year career, The Undertaker has finally taken his last ride. The Phenom, The American Badass, and the legend that is Mark Calloway has done more for World Wrestling Entertainment than most, and has earned the respect of the past three generations.
The Undertaker’s retirement is symbolic of what we’re currently experiencing during this “Great Awakening.” The world is waking up to the truth about humanity and what’s really been going on and we’re being red-pilled in a way that no one saw coming, much like the lights going out and legendary “gong” ringing from the titantron. We’re surprised, excited, nervous, confused, and asking a lot of questions.
We have been existing as “dead men walking” for much longer than 25 years, enslaved to a matrix. We’re told not to question things, are deemed “conspiracy theorists” if we dare to critically think, and experience criticism and the fear of being “cancelled” for anything that isn’t conforming to the “norm”. We eat, sleep, work, and procreate in a cycle that not many have ever bravely stopped to question. We have all at one point or another numbed our bodies,our feelings, ignored our intuition, and accepted that life is what happens TO us not FOR us.
The Undertaker iconically drags his thumb across his neck to symbolize the fact that his opponent is “dead,” and most of us have cut our own throats, held our own tongues, and not spoken up about what we believe in. We have felt “dead” being manipulated into thinking that speaking our truth would leave us cancelled and alone. The Undertaker has officially retired, and that’s our cue that we follow in his footsteps and rise from the dead.
He famously says, “the fear of death is far greater than the death itself, but the fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all,” and this fear of the unknown is the driving force between the division and separation we’re watching play out right now. For too many years it’s been black or white thinking: right or wrong, rich or poor, good or bad, democrat or republican, lover or fighter, and this leaves no room for the gray. The gray area is the only area we should be entertaining, because from that space of collaboration and unity, the illusion of separation becomes exposed.
The “unknown” of what’s going to happen to jobs or the economy or to our families, is an invitation, to not wait until someone outside of you tells you what to do. We have the power to decide what’s going to happen through our concerted efforts.
Some of us are choosing to create right now. We’re choosing to create new systems, new offerings, new experiences, all that are based in love.
Some of us are choosing to destroy right now: destroying old belief systems, structures, and organizations, that are based in fear.
The under-takeaway here is that we all have a choice, and honoring each other’s choices no matter how different they are from our own is the choice we get to make.
“Sometimes it’s hell getting to heaven,” and heaven on earth is possible when each one of us chooses to stop living in hell. Release your demons, you fears, and need to control. You can’t kill whats’ already dead.... The bad guys lost, love has already won. We just have to hold on to each other, we’ve got one last ride…
