i feel the biggest issue of our species is the lack of faith we have in each other. it’s fear, obviously. and it causes us to not trust each other or humanity’s abilities to change and grow out of the hole we’ve created.
it has caused us to close ourselves off, lock our doors and hoard our resources, attach blames and excuses to mistakes, attach self-righteousness and dogma to our opinions and beliefs, attach aggression and defensiveness and insecurity to our actions, attach worry and gloom to our visions of the future, and simply lose ourselves in cynicism and rigidity and apathy.
and until we can believe in each other, despite everything we’ve experienced on this planet and everything we’re being bombarded with, we cannot and will not solve anything.
a lack of faith in humanity is not an absence of faith, but faith in humanity’s downfall and obliteration instead of faith in humanity’s progression and shift into a better world for all. what do we have to lose by turning the vision upside down? …like an upside down frown.
absolutely everything is only as meaningful or meaningless as you decide.
everything only has the meaning you assign it.
everything only has the value you assign it.
everything only has the name you assign it.
everything only has the purpose you propose.
it’s good when you decide it’s good.
it’s bad when you decide it’s bad.
it’s right when you decide it’s right.
it’s wrong when you decide it’s wrong.
everything is whatever you believe it is.
decide for yourself.
and if you don’t decide for yourself, someone else has already decided for you.
