I am not concerned over any one country or nation. None of them exist in isolation, though some hope to, largely to the detriment of the people therein.
I am concerned about humankind.
I am worried about the whole, we have enough people squabbling over tiny fractions for personal gain.
I want to make a larger contribution.
I want to be part of the free flow of ideas, the honey that can only be produced with the immense work of an enormous amount of individuals.
Free to move.
Free to explore and create and tinker and play.
Free to be human beings.
Political borders stifle our collective future. We elect kings that rule over us in their land that we gave them.
We so quickly give up our right to self governance. Which makes it easier to accept and hand over authority of ourselves.
If the crowd wills it, it will be law.
I was borne to this planet, to this universe just as you were. Who is anyone to curb my wonderlust?
How dare they!?
No one would trust the majority of people in the world with their children, with their lives and yet these are the people we allow to choose rulers that determine the future of our children and of our lives.
Perhaps we trust to little. We expect too little from others.
We fear the freedom that self-governance and self-reliance would give us.
Ive made a new covenant with myself. The worst thing you can do is worry about what is not getting done instead of what you can do. The worst that happens is try try again the next day.
The least happy people i see are those worrying about what is beyond their ability to control. You can’t make people like you, you only offer them the opportunity to take an interest in you from them on its their choice. From then on it’s really up to you to stay liking them and them to like you. Try desperately not to compromise who you are for a them.
I believe what often sparks interest is a glimps of the raw you. To dilute that down is to diminish your draw factor. You can be too wild for some people… but that is really their problem. You can be to quiet for others but this reflects on their ability to listen, not your ability to communicate.
Seek out those adventurers in life that are desperately seeking the same loot and plunder as you. If you seek quiet security, or natural wonder or even wild parties you will find comrades who believe in the same ideals. Not everyone wants the same as everyone else all the time. Be flexible, trust, listen and explore! Only tiny people seek to inflict harm on others. We all just trying to find our way.
Seek to do no harm but when you do apologise. Try and explain. Forgive when you are hurt explain why you were hurt.
I don’t guarantee anyone is listening, but maybe they are.
You are responsible for you, your thoughts and actions. You are limited in these areas only by your creativity. Only by your field of experience so constantly seek to expand these.
Be smart, do your research, be reckless and seek truth and happiness. Dance, sing, sulk and brood. But try all things.
