Fear is what makes us human… without it, we are like God, okay, not really.. but if you want to swing in that way of thought, fine. Without fear, we are like God but stripped of all divine power including immortality. Meaning, without fear, there will be a time in one’s life where one can feel invincible and empowered, but since we’re not divine beings at all, we are prone to aging and deterioration. Those two are the roots of fear.
I think this is what makes us closer to God, to remind us of him. Love is what makes us his children. Life is hard, it is never easy. If it were then you’re doing something wrong. But the greatest obstacles are overcome by the greatest men.
It’s hard to always smile and laugh when there’s nothing to laugh about, but in this situation we still find something to make us feel good. If you we can’t find that something, what do we do?
Not to sound preachy but here goes..
We are all put here on earth, born, for different purposes, we know this much. But to find the perfect place, like Buddha, Mother Theresa, Spielberg, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Michio Kaku, Masashi Kishimoto, Dr. Jose Rizal, Galileo Galilei, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs… I think it’s not enough to know ourselves and our purpose but to act on them.
As for me, I grew up all my life with a smile. Always imagining, never thinking… and then the day finally came that I used my brain not to visualize but to THINK, and I saw that the world was not a dream. That people really do live their lives in constant fear. Worry. Stressed and anxious.
health. money. children. growing up alone. marrying. jobs.
Is this really what being human is all about? To worry now and give birth to children? Procreate? Again, is this the destiny of the human race?
On another note, my mom said, if you want to reach the clouds aim for the moon, for if you don’t get to reach the moon, you’ll fall on the clouds. (och, how nice that sounded)
So, if you want to reach the moon and the stars, aim for Pluto! So that you’ll have more than 10 fall-backs: MARS, JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS, NEPTUNE, and their respective moons.
Talking complete baloney again.
I guess what I’m saying is that, fear is a a part of human existence, a part of life but it’s not meant to consume us, it’s meant to empower us and eventually free us at best. So that’s it for my musings for today.
Cheers you guys!
