One day I went for a walk, then found I had lost my way home; this did not feel good, not good at all! “How did I find myself in this peculiar place,” I asked, “How did I find this new place?”
I never would have guessed my walk would create such chaos. I am wearing the very same clothes I left my house in just a bit ago. My hair, I’m certain hasn’t changed much. The weather remains the same, but the animals have come alive, and the flowers and trees, they’re all so beautiful, and they all seem to be speaking to me.
People do not understand me in my other world; I do not know why I cannot play their game, but I simply cannot. This is why I am lost in my own neighborhood; this is why a walk has me feeling abandoned.
I rush about and do not ponder; I forgot how to see the world as a mystery. I found some answers and chant the verses – then I wring my hands, and dream another’s dream. Come and play dress-up, prance in circles, and run the treadmill today; what else to do but compete with the best – survival is for winners!
I always wanted to win, but what I’ve since found… in order to succeed, our competition must cease. For I know in my heart, this world is falling apart; and no game that we play can repair this despair. It is time for the blinders to come off and embrace our spirit within. There’s a whole other place that transcends time and space; it’s the reason we’re here… SO STOP LIVING IN FEAR.
The money that smells, the jobs no more than prison cells, the goals prescribed, and the lives built on lies; the deaths gone unpunished, and the love left untouched. I ache for the world… have lost you?
The media (television/social media/consumption) culture we suckle all day has created apathy, confusion and the false idea of being in control of our lives; instead, we have domesticated ourselves into believing the screens we watch.
We obtained self-awareness, then we lost natural selection. Was man made with perfection at heart? If so, what is the point of evolution? No longer can we conquer each other, or this planet; instead, the lesson we must learn is how to heal.
We have made a mistake; choosing invention over creation has limited our existence on earth, but we can fix it. Reclaim yourself, help others do the same, and in turn change our culture.
I am of this world, no longer lost… having remembered my purpose in life:
deep clean breath in
deep clean breath out
sip clean water
savor clean plants
share your gratitude
and love inside…
through the outside of nature
