What a strange time to be alive. A thought I wanted to share that has been crippling me, to say the least:
It’s a nightmare to wake with the awareness that we live in such a superficial world. A world that measures beauty by facial symmetry, intelligence by wealth, and then dares to snark “those who live in poverty deserve it”. People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used.The reason the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved and people are being used. Anything you can lose is not yours. The numbers in your bank account, your new handbag, your boyfriend, your million dollar house- all of those things are not yours. You are a soul; that’s all you ever were, and that is what you will continue to be for infinity.
I feel guilty because I (my ego) try to shade my awareness that I’m not living a balanced life. I want to be a light in this world. I don’t want to be a supermodel. I want to be a superhuman. A super genius. I want to impact the world in ways that make the next generation more enlightened and aware of how to live cohesively with nature. But first, I want to learn to live this way myself.
