(Video) A Refreshing Reminder For All About The Real Meaning Of Life

smile-happy-life

This inspirational kinetic typography video of Bill Hicks is a reminder of what life is really is like when we focus on what really matters.

We get so caught up in all the bullshit that’s around us that we forget that at the end of the day we all have a choice; our choice is to be happy or sad. I choose happy, because really, life is just one big roller coaster ride for us all. We can be afraid or we can hang on, get through it and enjoy the ride.

I hope you enjoy this video, I know it brightened my day.

 

Bill Hicks – It’s Just A Ride – Inspirational Message

 

Bill Hicks Words Transcribed From This Video:

The world is like a ride in 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 coloured 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…”

And we… kill those people.
“Shut him up.”
“We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real.”

Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter because: 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. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

    I like the way you think joel. Although life can be depressing sometimes, we should never be letting those things effect the way we deal with our emotions. Like a rollercoast, we should just enjoy the ride until it comes to a full stop.

    Great clip reminding us we always have a choice!

    And as I used to say to the high school kids I taught – ‘Choices have Consequences!’
