It’s a secret question we ask ourselves. Whether we mean it towards our daily lives or our internal self. We see the chaos on every level. The chaos being that maelstrom of emotions within and rapid fire stimuli without.
Some days humanity seems like it’s being tested on a daily basis. What levels of greatness can we achieve? What are the true depth of human depravity? We each see these things in different manners, but we all see them none the less. Here in the US our depravities are as deep as any yawning chasm. Our greatness outshines those flaws, in our opinion. We watch movies that depict every manner of horrible thing a human can do to another so we can either feel the horror or elation of those moments. On the other hand we have people that strive every moment of every day so that others will live a better life of peace and acceptance. I might hazard a guess that readers from other countries might feel the same way about their homeland. Humanity is the same, no matter the region. Some places just find better ways of wrangling the chaos.
I enjoy sharing my thoughts about these topics. I take some manner of peace in knowing that I am not alone. I read your stories and feel like they are parts of me, because they are on some levels. We have felt the same feelings and sensations. The grip of fear that tightens around your heart. The depression that you can literally feel pushing you down to a proverbial kneel. The feeling of juxtaposition inside oneself as well as the world around us. The Razor cuts away the improbable(Occam’s Razor). I enjoy the those moments of peace.
None of us are actually alone, though all of us feel like it. How odd is that, really? We can exist in a sea of 7 billion 46 million people, we can feel like no one knows us. Like no one cares. But that is a lie. Every person that cries a little, even on the inside, when they see a sad moment in a show, video clip, or movie cares. They feel that little moment of empathy.
I would guess that’s another reason the internet was invented. We have strived in every way to connect one person to another. From campfires in ancient times, their light attracting strangers to it’s warmth, to social media and beyond. The human spirit desires unity. I hope I live long enough for the majority to catch on.
We’ve seen what we believe to be the worst in human kind. We’ve seen what we think is the best. Now we need to see the balance of those things. It goes the same when you are dealing with your own internal struggles. You have to find the balance within yourself. Accept that your dark side is part of you. Remember the thoughts don’t make you evil. Your deeds show your true colors. Until next time, peace to you and yours.
