One Minute Happiness - Your Highest Form: Escaping the matrix by becoming the best version of yourself.
Do you feel stuck? Like there's so much more to life but it's out of your grasp? We live in a society that constantly pushes us down and away from who we truly wish to be, and it sucks. It perpetuates sadness, depression, discrimination, and the living of a unfulfilled existence, but there are ways to transcend that place.
Your Highest Form is a short guide available here to read for free that explores how to escape the matrix and discover true purpose in life. Included are guided questions and practical tips to help uplift and transcend your current life narrative as well as challenging unhealthy cultural norms into which you were born. This is radical and alternative mental health at its best, connecting simple steps with a spiritual edge to unlock who you truly wish to be. Read below in images or scroll further down to see the transcribed text.
Copies of Your Highest Form are available for purchase on the Rad Cat Press Etsy Shop for $3.00. Help a friend in need!

The human race is more complicated than ever; each person is a synthesis of the many cultures, traditions, beliefs, ideas, technologies, artworks, mistakes, advancements, and histories that have existed prior to this moment in time. There is great wisdom and power available to us in this ancestral knowledge, and if used mindfully, may help us unlock our highest forms of mind, body, and soul.

Identifying Your Highest Form
Ask yourself these five questions:
What have I always wanted to do?
Who do I look up to?
What experiences in my life have made me the happiest?
Who would I be if I didn't live within a capitalist society or had to worry about money?
What am I capable of when I am absolutely confident in my words and actions?
Identify The Obstacles To Becoming Your Highest Form
While our highest form is more available to us than ever before, there are also more obstacles and distractions to overcome. These can include loneliness, money, addictions to media and drugs, location, depression, trauma, culture, separation from ancestral ways, lack of meaningful purpose, and upbringing. Just as each person has a different highest form, each person also has different obstacles to overcome. Diligence in transforming these obstacles is essential to finding your highest form.
Dealing With The Obstacles:
simplify your life, join a community, find a therapist to help you identify and overcome trauma and depression, meditate away obsessive thinking and find power in silence, change your diet and make sure your body is well-nourished, learn a trade or empower your communication and confidence through school, locate yourself closer to people working on personal growth and healing, find supportive and nurturing friendships, stop watching television, stop playing video games, join a support group to break away from alcohol and narcotic usage, challenge yourself to do uncomfortable things (may be easier with the assistance of classes or a therapist),
Dealing With The Obstacles, Continued:
set aside a small amount of time each day to pursue your dreams, start your own business, find a guru, seek out a transformative experience at a multi-day music, arts, or spiritual festival such as Symbiosis, Burning Man, or The Oregon Country Fair, exercise and dress in a way that feels empowering, learn how to believe in yourself, write down your dreams, meet all your basic needs (sustenance, safety, love, empathy, rest, community, creativity, freedom, and purpose), travel, take a chance, try something bizarre and scary, become spiritually grounded, believe in something beyond yourself, stop putting up with unhealthy friends and work environments!
Your life is a piece of art and you are an artist. You are always capable of change, rising to new, unforeseen experiences and opportunities. Sometimes vulnerability and putting yourself through uncomfortable situations is necessary to making motions toward transformation, but there is always an opportunity for becoming closer to your highest form.
