Aziz Shavershian, better known as Zyzz, is a modern day legend of the muscle world. His fitness journey left a deep trace in the hearts of many “brahs” trying to make sense of this world by building thick muscle fibers. Zyzz’s life which at first glance appears full of never ending pursuit of personal happiness made him famous and loved.
The old photos of Zyzz reveal that he was a typical skinny kid with confidence issues. His transformation into a powerful and confident individual with a great body acted as a strong magnet. The noobs loved him and created a cult. The fact that Zyzz started from the bottom earned him even more admiration.
Zyzz captivated the hearts of the poor by showing them that the mainstream idea of a “great life” can come true even if you’re average. He had it all – sex, freedom, fame, followers, respect. His secret to success? A muscular physique. A zoomed out look at Zyzz’s life leaves one with the impression that everything good that came to him was a direct result of swollen muscle fibers and detailed six pack abs.
However, life is not a commercial. People may choose to close their eyes, but the truth is that Zyzz crossed a line and got burned for it. Self-improvement was replaced by the greed for poisonous activities harming the self despite being considered a form of “happiness” by the society.
Zyzz was on the right track but got distracted and robbed on the train. His goal to improve and become a better version of himself was noble, but he lost himself in the quest. At one point, he became a victim of his desire to be an inspiration in the eyes of others. It all started with the use of anabolic steroids.
Whenever you ask somebody why he or she takes steroids, the answer is – to be the best I can be. Yet the truth is that most people take steroids to impress others. The roid brahs are looking for quick muscular growth and the “dude, what the fuck?” effect.
You can be strong, relatively muscular and in a better physical shape than the majority of the population without drugs. However, if you want to jump out of the page and become the next sensation, muscle elixirs are needed. And that’s what Zyzz ordered.
The philosophy of Zyzz is that one has to live life to the fullest without any regrets. Live now. Party hard. You only have one life. Make it the best it can be. On the surface, this idea is extremely attractive to teenagers and young adults. Almost every movie, popular song, and book seem to be based on the very same cliché. But there a catch. Zyzz and his followers got trapped in it.
The true idea behind living for the moment was never to kill yourself in the fastest way possible just to experience evanescent pleasures. That’s what the devil wants you to believe, and as we know, he is the master when it comes to poisoning and deception.
How do you poison someone? Well, you don’t just put a bottle with poison on the table and expect the victim to drink it. No. Not even mice fall for this. The trick works only if the poison is put in the right place. Food is a perfect choice. That’s how the devil operates. The case of Zyzz was identical. He got poisoned, and the bait was hidden in muscle fibers.
The smartphone generation is very easy to manipulate. If you show them a shiny label and a nice commercial with boobs in it, they will do almost anything you want. That’s why many of them can’t even see what actually happened to Zyzz. Instead, they make videos entitled “Zyzz’s Legacy”.
Tell me. What do you see in those videos? Do you see a role model or someone who needed help? Those clips show nothing but a party animal with a great physique acquired thanks to powerful steroids.
There is also a deep message, but it’s not what you think.
Zyzz was a victim of our environment. He was sucked in by the poisonous and self-abusive lifestyle encouraged today. A bottle of sugary drink like Cola explains the situation perfectly. The content is bad for the body, but some people would rather drink Cola than water. That’s the power of marketing. It can make poison appear more important than fresh water.
Zyzz wouldn’t have chosen this path if our society doesn’t encourage it. This world is a test. We are all living in an environment where all there is to do is sin. Sadly, even the devil condemns you for it. Unfortunately, we learn about the special clause in the contract after signing it.
About 4 years ago, I wrote a post entitled “God Is A Fraud and Does Not Exist”. Just recently I stumbled upon this very same text. I read it and immediately deleted it. It felt like work produced by the head an ignorant person. I changed my mind or maybe the proper saying is my mind was changed. I believe there is a real creator. The place where we are has been taken by a devil that we call God. That so-called God does not have good plans for us. He wants us in this never-ending loop forever. The true God is not really a God. He is the Creator. There’s a big difference.
The architects of the system want you to believe that what you see is all there is. You only have one life and that’s it. You can choose to believe this or not. Zyzz chose to believe it, and his soul was stolen.
Personally, I am not trilled to live in a world where every smile is paid with the tears of someone or something else. That’s why I look at this place as a teaching institution. You come here to learn and graduate. You come here to learn about the snake and its poison. I know this is not the end. But even if it is – what are we going to do about it. Party hard and pretend that we’re happy?
