What if we’re it?

Let’s suppose for the moment that we, here on earth, are the only life in the universe. The question then remains are we the first to form or the remains of what once was?

In either case we are a poor example of what life there is currently. Wars, atrocities, serious injustices all because someone has chosen to live or believe different than ourselves.

If we are the beginning then we are off to a very bad start. Surely this isn’t the best we can offer the universe in the early stages of life? Dare we go out into the universe with all that we currently have to bring with us? We are not ready!

If we are the last of life here in the universe then we are a sad testament to what once was and I often wonder how bad it was if we are the example, the remains of what once was? Maybe we were shunned and banished form something far greater? Are we to go out in such a sad state, a dim light fading in the darkness? Surely we could’ve done better?

Regardless of which way this is going, surely we can do better? Let us put in one major effort to start or end this better! Stop for a moment and forget your divides, your prejudices, your short sighted assumptions of that which you don’t know, and see the world as it is for what it is and ask of ourselves “How can I do better?”.

Am I ready to go out there?

Life! How do you want it to begin? How do you want it to end?

What I Feel!

As a writer and philosopher I carry the heaviest burden and the deepest pain of seeing a nation I cannot change, a people I cannot save, a world who’s future is bleak and dark who’s destiny I cannot prevent.

 No one can ever understand how I feel inside and what it is I carry in my heart. Only one like me will understand this burden and pain that resides within me.

All I can do is the one thing I know how…write. Write in hope that somewhere someone who can direct these changes will see, understand and hear the message. I write in hopes that maybe, just maybe, I can make a difference even if small. Even the smallest spark can start the greatest of fires!

Maybe my small spark of desire for change will inflame the world with the fires of hope and change! Maybe not today, but maybe tomorrow the fires of change will rage!

 I carry a burden no one can take from me and it is heavy.
I feel a pain no one can cure and it runs deep in my soul.
I carry a hope for a hopeless future.
I carry the spark that could very well set the world ablaze!

I Live a Life

I don’t choose a life, I live one.  Each day I see an opportunity to not only make a difference in the lives of others, but in my own life.

Each day I look for the chance to do something unplanned and off the wall.  Sometimes others surprise me, sometimes I surprise myself.  I will plan something, but am ready for those plans to change at a moments notice.

I live my life like the wind at times.  While I stay grounded and plan for things that need planning, I am not afraid to change other plans as I go and do something far greater than I originally expected.

In the midst of my fears, anxiety and depression there is a tremendous amount of discovery and courage that has allowed me to face all of my fears and worries.  Even being terrified of water, yet there I am body surfing in the Gulf.  The fear of not living is the worst one of all and that fear I will defeat.

I live my life, I find my own path and if no path is set, I make one.

I am a leaf in the wind and never know where I will land next!

Alone

People come into our lives for a reason, sometimes we don’t even really understand why. My heart is that of a free spirit and wanderer, I have had many come into my life, some have stayed and some have moved on or maybe I moved on.

I have had a few relationships in my life and now being single, I see that they all had meaning and added something to my life, and I hope I added something to theirs as well.

I am a hard person to figure out at times and though my light shines, it shines alone in the dark. But I hope that whatever light I shine it will show someone the way.

I feel everything deeply and not everyone can understand or appreciate that. I see things differently as well and not everyone has or understands my vision. What I see and feel ties into that which I do, my writing, philosophizing and sharing whatever thoughts or stories as they come to me.

There is much I need to do and it requires me to be alone at times to focus. I am alone, but not really lonely as I have many in my life that touch my heart daily. Many of you have included me into your lives as well and it has been appreciated and I have enjoyed my time with you.

Now I must journey this path before me alone in heart, thought and soul, but that which I do will be shared with all and whatever message I am meant to deliver will be there for you to see.

I am reaching deeper into my heart and finding that which has been lost for so long…me. Dormant skills have come to the surface and awakened once again and my life is becoming more fulfilling as I journey forward with all that I feel I need to do.

Maybe one day one will see the light who is meant to follow it and come, but today I shine brightly and live as I feel I should.

I may journey alone, but I am not alone in my journey.
