“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
So it begins. I've decided that I should probably start writing down all the crazy thoughts that go through my head everyday to try and maybe make some sense of them and maintain my sanity if possible. Well...Here it goes..
I've been thinking a lot about the meaning of life lately, probably because i have an enormous fear of death and finding meaning in life gives me some comfort. It is difficult to think about though, there is so much involved in life. There's the everyday things that define us, our jobs, family, friends. but most of all when you really think about it we, as a society, are defined by pieces of paper. Dirty, green pieces of flimsy paper define so much of who we are and what we become. This is so sad to me. I think back to the Native Americans, I think they had it right. Solid trading, you get what you work for. Its insane in this society how people become rich. Celebrity's make more than doctors or teachers, people who go out there everyday to mold minds and save lives. Its so sickening . We live in the age of information and yet no one has any idea what the hell is going on in the world. All people care about is which flavor of the month on t.v. is dating who. This is how men like George W. and his administration get away with all the shit they do. WAKE UP PEOPLE. We are in big trouble if you don't wake the fuck up!! I'm guilty of it too, its easier not to care sometimes. I got a lot of shit going on in my life to worry about but really if i don't start thinking and caring i wont have any life left.
I want to be a taoist, just natural in every way. Peaceful. I think we could learn a lot from the tao.
