At this point in my life
I’d like to live as if only love mattered
As if redemption was in sight
As if the search to live honestly
Is all that anyone needs
No matter if you find it.

A little thought towards being the best we can be…

I know this idea might sound too deep for some people but it’s one of those thoughts that flicker across your curiosity and we might not give enough attention to. I feel that it’s so important and so relevant to everything we do: What is the ultimate goal of the human race? Why are we all here? Maybe the question isn’t why are we all here but instead, since we are all here and together, what kind of a life do we all want to live? What’s that one word that shows up so much in our lives, on the news, on bumper stickers? What’s that one symbol that’s so iconic in religion, in teenage photos flashed between an index and a middle finger? Peace. Why is it so important and how do we achieve it? Or rather yet, what is peace? It’s a way of life; it’s the ability to live in harmony, a state of society where we live together without the negativity that comes from the acts of others, with each person behaving in manners which do not cause these kinds of negativities. Knowing this, and knowing that for any goal to be reached it must be acted upon with dedication and perseverance, wouldn’t you realize that every second counts? Every action you take shapes that future and every time you do something contrary to this goal, we all take a step back. We are all in this together, reaching towards a goal involving all of the world, all its people. We have to realize also that we can only change ourselves, and only hope to change others by example.

I sometimes consider this a call to action to everyone to think; to not be rushed by life and your peers, to not be afraid to let a moment pass by while you take the high road and think about what you’re about to at every moment, to take a few moments before you act and eventually train yourself to always take the high road and act the way you think is best by YOUR standards. That is not to say that sometimes we will fail and things will not go the way we wanted. But to have the foresight to realize that whatever you do, you will come out feeling your BEST because you thought about it and did your best, no matter how great or small the matter.

If we all try our best, we can together become the best we can be.

I am very fond of strawberries and cream, but I have found that for some strange reason, fish prefer worms. So when I went fishing, I didn’t think about what I wanted. I thought about what they wanted. I didn’t bait the hook with strawberries and cream. Rather, I dangled a worm or grasshopper in front of the fish.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
