With chaos all around like a mighty storm , I am filled with stillness. With death all around like an ever-growing cemetery, I am still at peace. The tragedies and chaos of this world can cause helplessness and emotional exhaustion. It can cause you to feel like you have no power over it. But I have grown to understand that when you seek to control the uncontrollable, that’s when your life becomes miserable.
Trying to attain the unattainable, trying to prevent the unpreventable. Life isn’t so much about the things we can’t control as it is about all the controllable factors. Like, your happiness and your peace of mind. There is so much we can still control, why focus on what we can’t?
As humans our minds are intrigued by challenges and complexities. We cling to the hardships and we love to be heroes. We love the idea of saving something or saving someone. It gives us this thrill- like we have purpose, like we have reason. But why do we always feel the need for a reason? A reason to love, a reason to live, a reason to BE. When BEING is enough of a reason, BEING is reason enough. Our sole existence is reason enough for everything. We are so powerful we don’t even know it.
Let’s use the power we have to change the world. Let’s use the tools we have to create a better tomorrow. There’s no better gift to give to this world than to be your true authentic self. The world deserves the real you; there is enough fakeness out there. The famous bible verse says, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”. But what’s worse, is if you didn’t even know your soul in the first place. Go to your grave knowing you, go to your grave fulfilled, go to your grave 100% you.
