Random Words of Wisdom

I’m a little tied up with my study schedule so my posting will be a little slow for the next two months but I have collected some of my musings and put them together in the meantime.

One the Meaning of Life

There comes a time when every man must face the fact he does not know the meaning of life. It will blindside him in anguish and loss. It will tackle him front on in futility and frustration and it will drop him in despair and desperation.

After some time, past the point where he rails against the world, slowly will he come to understand that only one person can answer his question. With this realization he will be free to create his own meaning. He will be free to choose his own passions and he will be free to create himself in any such image he chooses.

On Empathy
There is only one way to listen with empathy and that is to bring the heart into the mind and let it feel what you hear.

On Personal Growth
And when the soul is rent, torn piece by piece until only a tiny speck remains the person left behind has a choice. He can die slowly waiting for the last autumn storm to cast him into winter. Or he can create himself anew. Where once there was a soul waiting to be impressioned by the world he can build cities the like man has never seen before. Great forests can be planted and nurtured as far as he can see. Mountains can be raised to heights unassailable and oceans dug, filled with crystal green waters. When he has finish rebuilding his soul life shall flourish in this landscape, his tapestry, his vision, his creation for he knows this soul is his and his alone to do with as he will.

On a Better World
There is only one truth to life.

You create the world around you.

You will face nature.
You will face man.
You will face the universe.

And out of all those you, and only you, decide what to keep, what to discard and what to use because in the center is you, and only you.

If you want a world where fires and floods hold you in fear then that is the world you shall have. But if you want a world where ocean views and mountain vistas hold your awe then this too you shall have.

If you want a world where mankind are monsters and to be feared than that is the world you shall have. But if you want a world filled with family, friends and partners then this too you shall have.

If you want a world no bigger than your house, city or country than that is the world you shall have. But if you want a world of endless wonder and infinite horizons then this too you shall have.

What world do you wish to create?
The choice is solely yours.
