The power of us, humans.

I am worried about the direction this world is heading to. I read a story yesterday that gave me an extremely sad and fearful feeling. Injustice is the norm now. It is the norm towards anyone and anything, and that is horrific. We are human. What happened to that? We have a conscious as well as compassion. Or at least we used too. Because now, I believe many have lost that gift, the gift of love and care. They have become empty and dark inside, and those are the most people I fear for. As they have nothing to live for except for greed, hate, and selfishness.

Power and money, the essence of all evil that is spread upon this world. Why is it that some crave that much power and money? What about family, justice and happiness? What about purpose?

I put it upon myself to live every day aiming to make a difference. Not only for humans, but for anything that breathes. I call for change, from every living being. This evil around us, this injustice and inequality, will be forever a curse on our planet as well as on our children. Think about those you will leave behind. What will you leave them to? No ocean, no plants and trees, only guns and hatred?

Seven and a half billion people, yet they think of themselves as one weak being. They fear. But I do not blame them, as I also fear. But there comes a moment where it is important to remember your power as an individual. It is important to remember that if you rise, all will rise. And when that happens, the world will change. Those who make us fear will run. Those who make us fear will beg. And because we are human, we may forgive. But I would not blame us if we did not. I am aware I do not have this gift of forgiving those who have brought evil upon people and even inflicted fear on others. I do not forgive, because, they have lost their gift of being human, they have turned into just beings. They are empty and dark. And I shall never forgive those who are dark inside, unless it was not by choice, but as a result of also fear and injustice inflicted on them. I would only forgive, if they rise and find their humanity once again. If there will not be change now, it will never exist in our lifetime.

We have become careless, of not only those around us but also the planet in which we live in. Don’t get me wrong; I believe in hope and that change will come no matter what and when. Every single being will get exactly get what they deserve, whether good or bad. In fact, I am hope and YOU are hope. The children of this world are, and will always be hope. However, we have to fight for humanity. Fight for justice. Fight for equality. And most importantly, fight for freedom. It is important to realize that each action one takes every single day affects this fight. It is important to realize that you do not live alone. This is everyone’s fight. If you do not care about strangers, care about your family. If you do not care about humans, care about the planet. If you do not care about the planet, care about whomever you feel deeply towards. You are just passing along and you should leave a footprint that will take this world one step ahead and not one step back.

You will ask me then, what shall I do? I will tell you be good and be kind. Be strong and be courageous. Never give up and always have hope. Don’t ever accept ignorance and injustice. If you hold on to being human, you will do more than you could ever think or even imagine. As the gift of being human, is one, if not the only, greatest gift of all. Only then, you shall pass through pure and satisfied. And I can assure you my friend, that only then, this world will be forever ours.

 

Yours truly,

An old man changed my life without knowing me or knowing he did

Right where I am sitting right now in a cafe, there is two huge sets of windows in front of me that are looking through a street where many pedestrians are walking, and there is an old man sitting next to me. He grabbed my attention because of, the difference between him, and every other person sitting in this room.

He is sitting with his cup of coffee with his hands around it, with no phone near him, no laptop in front of him, and no headphones plugged in his ears. He is sitting with nothing but a cup of coffee. Nothing but his thoughts, his mind, and his eyes looking straight ahead. Every other person in that coffee shop, is either talking on the phone, listening to music while texting and/or scrolling down their screen, or just sitting next to their phone that is plugged in the wall, waiting for it to turn on, not once glancing over the room, and looking at people around them. Some others are just doing what I am doing, working or studying on their laptop.

Every single person in this coffee shop does not know who the person next to them is, and frankly, does not even care to know. The only time they actually saw the people in the room is when they were looking for a place to sit. And when they did, they did not smile, or even say hello to the person in front of them, next to them, or even behind them. Their only focus is on the screen that is in front of them. Robots is what they are and what they look like. They are not the only ones guilty of that, I am too, and you probably are too. If not right in this moment, the moment right before it.

 

The man siting next to me is the only one in this room that is enjoying himself and living the moment, as we say. he is looking through the huge sets of windows in front of him, actually smiling at the few people who look up while passing by. He is looking at every single person that is passing by and enjoying his surroundings. he is smiling, not only at people who is passing by but to himself as well. He is enjoying himself, and his cup of coffee. Most of us wouldn’t understand what is there to enjoy and it is because we are functioned to only enjoy ourselves during everything but the simple moments.
He made me look up and look ahead and smile too. Smile at being present and alive. Many moments pass by and we do not even notice them. Many people pass by and we do not even see them. People are around us every single day and we don’t even interact with them 90% of the time, unless we have too. We are controlled by those screens. we are controlled by the materialistic things, that we have become unable to enjoy the simple things. Life is about every passing moment. it is about every memory you make every single day that you are present. it is not just about the moments you capture. it is not about the moments where your body was there but your mind wasn’t. it is not about the moments where you were consumed by the screen in front of you.
The man who was sitting next to me just moments ago stood up and looked over at me and told me goodbye. He changed my life because from now on, I will not be a robot, I will be a living being, living every moment passing by. I will, as much as I could, not have the screen consume me but rather be present in each passing moment.
Right after the old man left, a girl came and sat next to me, put her coffee down on the table and immediately held up her phone. The cycle began again but this time, it was not including me. All thanks to this stranger who was living in the moment right next to me.

My soulmate

I have always believed that it is possible for two people to fall in love and that love does exist. But soulmates, I never really understood what it could be, is the person you fall in love with, ends up being your soulmate? Does your soulmate have to become the person you are in love with?  To be honest, I did not even think a “soulmate” could be a real thing… until I met my own.

I know this person is my soulmate because when I look at them everything makes sense. And when we are together, nothing else in the world could compare. You feel completed in a way that is indescribable. The second they leave your side, it is as if a part of you, a significant part of you, has left with them. That part you think has left with them, does physically and mentally go away with them. And I think it is because of the strong connection you have together.

Not only that, your happiness depends on their happiness. It is impossible for you to be happy, if they are feeling down. You become connected in so many incredible ways. You become one person, united in every way. Like with your dreams, your desires, your goals, even with your thoughts and your emotions.

When you argue together, and it seems like you are absolutely driven crazy, and there is no way out, deep down you know there is always a way. Because the thought of living without this person is the scariest thought you will ever have in your life. Life is them, they make your whole life.

What a wonderful thing this is. A thing that cannot be compared to anything else in this whole wide world. It is one of the most precious gifts. And so, I do believe soulmates exist. In my personal experience, they have also become the person I am in love with.

Happy birthday my love. You are my light and my soulmate for eternity and beyond.

Do you think soulmates exist? I would love to know.

Yours truly,

The Unknown Within

You are NEVER alone

I have always wondered why is it that we sometimes feel alone? Although, most of the time, we are not alone at all. We might have our family by our side, our friends by our side, or even some might have their significant other by their side. But even though we might have all those people there for us, we still somehow feel alone. We still feel that there is no one there to listen to us. The reason no one is there to listen to those feelings we have, is because we are not necessarily able to put them into words. Sometimes even when we do, we do not even know what it is that we feel. So because this is the case, we think to ourselves, who could be there for me to listen to this “nonsense”?

That is not wrong to feel, you should not blame yourself that you feel the way that you do. It is okay. But, not for too long. What you should do is make yourself feel everything by letting it all out at once. Cry, draw, sing your lungs out, or go for a run. Do whatever it is that allows you to let it all out. But after you do that, you have to get yourself UP. Get yourself back on track, and get whatever it is you need to get done, done. And do not let yourself feel that way again. Don’t give yourself the excuse that you are not getting things done because you feel down.

It is important to know that NO ONE is ever alone, that YOU are never alone. No matter what, you are never alone. Look around you, look at those who care about you the most and want the best for you. That is the case even though you probably give them the least amount of time and attention. Look at those who have been there no matter what the situation was or what time it was, even if sometimes you forgot to thank them for it. Notice those around you because when you do, you will realize you are not alone. Even if you realize there is only one person you can think of that is by your side. The number of people never matters. All that matter in the end is for you to know that no matter how alone you feel, you are NEVER alone. There is always someone out there that loves you and wants what is best for you. There is always someone out there that is thinking about you right this moment, right where you are. There is also always someone else out there that wants to ask about you and know or make sure you are okay. And if you do look around you and you still do not find anyone, which is VERY unlikely, you are still not alone because I think you matter. Even though, you do not know me and I do not know you.

So if you ever feel like you are lonely or alone, remember this: YOU are NEVER alone. There is always someone that cares about you and is there for you no matter what. So look around you and get yourself up and back on track. Because “If you can look up, you can get up”- Les brown.

The circle around you

Surrounding yourself with giants can be one of the best things you can do to yourself. Giants are those who are positive, those who will bring you up and not down. Those that will teach you to rise and not fall. It is important to differentiate between the giants and the losers. If you surround yourself with losers, you will become a loser! It doesn’t have to be your choice, it will become you unconsciously.
What if those people are people you genuinely love? Well keep loving them, keep seeing them but limit yourself so you don’t become them. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices so you can rise, otherwise you will stay at the bottom. It is your choice. It might be hard now, but your future self will thank you for it.
“Birds of a feather flock together”. You hang out with losers..you will be a loser.

Don’t be an Asshole

Lately I’ve noticed that people question when someone is doing something good for them, but they don’t question when someone does something bad. It always seems like that’s what we expected anyways. Think about that. If someone were to be nice to you for no reason, one of your first thoughts would be why are they being nice? Maybe you would wonder what do they want? I mean there must be a reason behind their kindness.
To me this is sad. Before the “normal” was that the majority of people are nice, that you can trust people but now, it is different. You can’t trust everybody and you sure can’t expect people to be always nice.

So do your part, and be a good person. Not only for people but also for you. You will be happy that people are always looking forward to see you or looking forward to talk to you. You will be happy if you feel loved! We are all here for a certain period of time, so why can’t you leave people with only good things to say? Good things to remember.  It isn’t that hard to smile when you see someone. It isn’t also hard to say good morning when you see someone. Maybe some of you will think it is weird to just say good morning to strangers but that’s the problem. Why is it weird that you are saying “good morning”? I mean how is that weird? You are making them smile, why is that weird to do?
It is such a simple thing to say yet it can have a great affect on someone. Bob Marley once said, “When it is raining it is not only raining on your house”. Which means, you are not the only person in the world that is going through something, whether it is big or small. You are not the only one.  The least thing you can do is give people good and positive vibes.

When someone needs you, be there. When someone looks towards you, smile. When you hear people say negative things about someone, don’t be a part of it. If they’re doing that with you, they are probably doing it without you.  When someone says hi, you respond. Last but definitely not least, don’t judge people. You have absolutely no idea what they are going through! If you are reading this and you are thinking that’s just impossible, nobody can do that then you sure need to know that this is a problem and you should revise yourself. It is not impossible to be a good person. “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good!!”-Samuel Johnson.  Think about that.

Life and our loved ones

Life. Life is a very interesting thing. The more I go on in life, the more I see, feel, witness and experience things. The good things are great, but the bad…the bad hurts. You feel it in your chest. Sometimes even in your heart.

Why is it that the bad things leave scars inside us? Is it because that’s what makes us grow? What makes us stronger? Yes, that’s why. Otherwise how would you change? If you can’t have something inside you that forces you to become a better person, how would you be a better person? It has to come from within. But still. The hard and difficult times, the ups and the downs, are painful. They make you question a lot of things in life. Like thinking that your loved ones are just going to always be there is a wrong way to look at things, you must change that. I have realized that this is not real life. People come and go. So you have to do everything you can to show them you care. You might think that they know, and that you don’t need to say it. That’s not right. You have to remind them as much as you can. That’s important. It is important that you pick up that phone and ask about your loved ones, because when the time comes you will wish you did. With the pain of losing someone, you will have the pain of guilt. Don’t do that to yourself. Pick up the phone and show you care.

This is life. No one lives forever. People go so other people can come. So you have to benefit from the time you have with them now.
Have your priorities straight. Yes work is important, yes your plans for today are important, but what’s more important is the people you love. You don’t have forever to tell them how you feel you have today. That is the closest thing you can guarantee.

You never know what that phone call will mean to that person. It might make their day. Maybe they really needed a reminder that they are loved. You don’t need to know what it will mean to that person. Do it because you want too, not because you have too. Show the people you love how much you love them through action, not words. Be there for people. You don’t live alone. And if you’ve lost someone, you must know that as much as it hurts now, time will heal you. They may be gone, but their soul and their memories will stay with you forever. “Everything will be okay in the end, if it is not okay, it is not the end”-Unknown.
