This was a beautiful video. As a young adult I do find it hard at times to understand the darkness of the world and why there is such a lack of love. I also find myself being sucked into this darkness because it feels like a losing battle to be fighting in the name of love. I.E: I want to live lovingly but I also want to pay the bills and make those around me happy. So I must work at a job I dislike and lose time for me and those I care about around me. I become afraid that if I don't have this job than I cannot provide for myself and will be alone. This is the fear that is instilled in me. I want so much for people to open their eyes and remember what it is like to think and feel with the honesty and openness of a young child. We spend our lives being told that that is childish and you must grow up and mature but really it is just a way to put fear in your heart and to shut it off allowing only your brain to think. This is a very scary thing and I hope that more people become aware of this and want change as much as I do and many other young people in this world. You are never too old to become young again. I hope this inspires more people as it has myself.
"the most important thing to remember is this: To be ready to give up what you are for what you might become"
"If you are not busy being born, you are busy dying." --Bob Dylan "Obstacles are those things we see when we take our eyes off our goals." "If we don't like where we are, change it! We are not trees." "Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity." -- Louis Pasteur, Chemist and Microbiologist
I know it's been a while since I've actually taken the time to write here, I usually just post those things that inspire me and help me make decisions to continue to move forward in the direction of my dreams. I feel that if they inspire me they might do the same for someone else, even if I'm not aware of the impact they might have in others.
As I mentioned before I've been preparing for a big move. In the next couple of weeks I'll be moving to Israel, a dream I've had since I was 17 yrs. old. I guess like they say everything has it's gestation period and now it's the right time for me to give birth to the dream.
All our lives are a series of events that help create the adventure we live in, and it's only when we know what we really want that we can "Make it Happen on Purpose".
I stumbled into this great interview that contains the way I view life and though it's a bit lengthy I thought some of you might enjoy it.
