What has happened to our beauty? Where has it gone?
We have lived in ages of wonder, enlightenment, and even decadence….enjoying it all the way….but what has happened? Where have our eyes of wonder and delight gone to? Has it all been replaced by the visions only limited to what lies on the surface? I see so much potential, but sadly see too much of it squandered away in the pursuits of petty things like power, money, and material things. Those things may do well in the here and now…..but what about later? Have we lost the ability to truly live in the moment?….to embrace what is here and now, and enjoy it while it is there?
There are those who have not forgotten, and know what is truly means to be alive. Living in the moment is not a bad thing – it’s a wonderful thing that should be embraced. Have passion – have imagination – have a love for doing what you really enjoy doing, and relish in it. Be free to be who you wish to be, as long as no harm comes to others. The more we progress in the ways of what is forced upon us in our daily lives….commerce….politics….social ideals….I think takes away from being able to be free to wonder….to imagine what could be. We’ve lost the ability to see within, and make the best of things. We need to reclaim our imagination,….our will to be who we want to be. We’re so cautious about what we revewal to others that we tend to limit outselves to what bonds others have placed in our pathe…and we do so willingly.
Why do we do this? Why do we contain ourselves in this way? Are we so afraid of what migh happen, that we bcome afraid to step outside of those false boundaries? It’s time to live – to truly LIVE life once again, and not frear what might come tomorrow, because we always have tonight. I have seen through history, ages of people who have had passion, who have had imaginations that fired the soul, and caused people to shriek in delight at what they have seen, felt, heard, and encountered. There are the dreamers who have not lost this, and those are truly the lucky ones, for they can see with eyes of wonder and delight, not worrying about things like deadlines, planning, and forecasting….they truly delve into what they are doing, and time for them seems to stand still while the world moves about them. It’s no big deal though….it’ll still be there when they come out again…and it won’t seem as long as it might have been.
It’s time to dream again…..to dream of places we’ve not been in this plane – yet might have in another one. To tell stories of people who may not exist….or actually may have somewhere, yet we do not know about them. To tell of times that have not come – or may have at one place or another….we just haven’t been there.
It’s time to truly live…….
I offer this little slice of imagination on this night, from another creative soul…..
