I’d like to live in fantasy, but I am surrounded by people who believe it only provides sustenance to the mind and delivers famine to the rest of our manifestation. Am I wrong to believe in dreams? Am I wrong to believe in myself? I don’t want to feel as if I’ve sold my soul to corporate entities, these juggernauts of Wall Street and Capitalism… I don’t want to be a slave to the corporatization of education and a society that values a piece of paper over a beautiful mind or a beautiful heart. I want to be free and have full control over my life and the path it takes, but everywhere around me is a world built on greed, built on envy, built on everything that I can’t stand about the people that I can’t stand and it’s taking its toll on me. I just want it to change. I want to change this entire world. I want to change the way we think and the way we interact with each other.
We all need to push for more… but NOT for more money. Let us search for our humanity, our sense of compassion, for more of everything that fills our hearts with the energy that brings a smile to our faces. We must create a world that is loving and inclusive; a world where the only people who must hide themselves are the greedy and the corrupt. This might be a fantasy, but it’s also the only reality that I could accept.
I don’t know if it’s just that I don’t fit in this world or that I don’t want to, but I’m starting to believe that maybe I am truly meant to be this way; that this is what will help me fulfill some kind of purpose in this world. I might just be some 21 year-old (I’ll be officially 21 on Saturday), but I truly feel that each and every one of us has a purpose in life. There has to be some reason to stay alive and keep fighting. I am result of every resource the Earth has bestowed upon me to consume, of every second given to me by another human being, and that is true for every human being. Each one of us is here to leave our mark, whether that is positive or negative. As you know, I intend to leave a positive one :) Maybe I’m here to help create a world that someone like me can feel a little bit more comfortable in?
I’d love to hear what you think about this post, so post a comment down below or directly onto my Facebook Page’s wall. You can describe what would make this world a better place in your eyes as well. That’s always interesting to talk about! Thank you! :)
