a break in the clouds…
a gift of responsibility...
is this life a gift? we have this existence that is temporary and twisted... we have created a life that is beyond complex... although living requires very few things (food, water, and shelter), we've distorted it to seem like there just isn't enough to need, ever... we claim to value life, but most of us don't even realize we are alive... we need to be close to death to realize it's time to really live... we took the gift of life and fucked it up. we spend our entire life trying to find our purpose on the planet, but we struggle with understanding it all... we go back and forth saying, "I wanna start a family", "I wanna make a million dollars", "I wanna travel", etc. what do any of these things accomplish? personal goals? self-worth? entitlement? happiness? i'm not really sure... society will pat you on the back, but where will that get you? still 6 feet under... why is our existence deemed as superior/central/dominant/sole? why is our existence at the center of the universe? why do we have egos? why are we superior to animals (we act the same as they do; ie killing, mating, nurturing, evolving, segregating, preying on the weak, etc.)? why do we see our personal lives as singularly important to anything? my answer to that is education and socialization... from the day we are born, we are blinded to the truths of life... our parents, community, schools, and peers mold us into the norm... we step out of line, and someone is there to pressure/scold/manipulate you back in line... "you're weird!", "you're stupid!", "you're wrong!", they say... it's a vicious cycle that needs to be broken. why can't we just look up to the sky? why can't we teach astronomy to children? why can't we promote humility in children? why can't we teach about real role models? why can't we teach about the truth of our existence? why can't we see our existence as mankind as futile? wouldn't this subside the ego? wouldn't this change our perspective of life and how it really is a thing to cherish? we are fooled into thinking we need to build our personal lives a certain way to achieve happiness... when we follow all the guidelines and realize we are not happy, depression/anger/rage sets in. if we understood that death is part of life and it's okay to die, our youth would be maintained for a long time... if we focused our energy on the essentials of life (growing food, irrigation of water, building shelter, using/advancing technology, etc.), we'd have a greater sense of worth and fulfillment... when you spend your life lying to people/ripping them off/selling things that aren't needed/not being yourself, it warps your sense of reality... theses actions are a big part of the majority of jobs people work in their life... You're just feeding the machine and perpetuating the vicious cycle that needs to be broken. life is not a gift. it is a responsibility. you're responsible to make the most of your time. live consciously and remind yourself that you will die one day... use this as a motivation to be your best, everyday and in everything you do. move through your life with purpose... don't just exist to die. this is what the system wants... peace and noLove...
