We are the seeds of the stars, and our goal as human beings is to take the galaxy of complex particles that compose our bodies and let them shine. Gloriously shine! But this land is somber, vacant of the passion for the here and now. We walk around as the silhouettes of the past or as the dispersing mist of the future. All the while there is a moment waiting there in front of our eyes, that is so full of raw, virgin life—it only requires our attention, an adventurous spirit, and the right set of eyes. We have the ability to become so madly alive, but instead our lives are eaten up by worries, insecurities, measurements, past events, passionless jobs, paved paths, pumped propaganda, archaic rules, misconstrued ideas of success, other’s expectations, and empty distractions. Our lives are eaten up by nothing… We wait around hoping for the miracle that never comes, never has came, and never will come. And yet, we go to bed every night hoping, praying, desperately dreaming a change will come during our slumber to save us, only to wake up the following day to find the same monotony running lifelessly on track. We must search our souls and realize that, we are the catalyst, we are the force, we are the miracle, we are the light—and we need to look no further, and wait no longer.
Now is the time to shine. Gloriously shine! For we will all burn out soon enough.
So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
People are strange: They are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice.
