Bill Hicks - It's Just a Ride

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
The world is like a ride at an amusement park and when you choose to go on, you think it's real, cause that's how powerful our minds are. 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 of invested in this ride, shut him up!" "Look at my furrows of worry, my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real!" It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys that try to tell us that, ever notice that? And we 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 of money; a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead sees 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 we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world which it would many times over - not one human being excluded and we can explore space together - both inner and outer - forever, in peace. Thank you very much, you've been great. I hope you've enjoyed it. London, you're fantastic, thank you!
