Watching TV Instead of Living LIFE?

The following quote by Andy Warhol gives me chill bumps, and sends shivers down my spine. It leaves me utterly speechless. It’s shocking and it will really make you think because this is EXACTLY the way most people are living their lives. And I can almost guarantee that it describes YOU (on occasion) too!

Awareness is the powerful first step to creating lasting change.

And we don’t need to wait for tragedy to strike, before we get knocked to our senses!

“Before I was shot, I always thought that I was more half-there than all-there–I always suspected that I was watching TV instead of living life.

People sometimes say that the way things happen in movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen to you in life that’s unreal.
The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really DO happen to you, it’s like watching television–you don’t feel anything.

Right when I was being shot and ever since, I knew that I was watching television. The channels switch, but it’s all television.
When you’re really really involved with something, you’re usually thinking about something else.
When something’s happening, you fantasize about other things.”

— Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol

Let’s make a conscious effort to LIVE our lives…

With no regrets!
