When I crept up here a few nights ago, into the womb of myimpossibledream, I’m not sure what I expected to find... lights out and abandonment.. total carnage? Of course I was greeted by neither of those. The children of my former thoughts still lay sleeping; lined up and ready to be picked by passing travellers of the ether. One single empty place laid in waiting. My breathing slowed as I felt the Site’s mood fill with curbed expectation; it's heart still beating but not loud enough to let me forget the promises I'd broken before. Was that what I was hoping for? Chastisement? Was I that desperate for an excuse to retreat back under my hermits cloak? It didn’t matter. The anticipation, the heightened feeling of worldy layers being stripped away from me, came flooding back. Only guilt, for having once again stayed away too, threatened pure contentment. The next morning, hoping that inspiration would come with the dawn, I rose early.
Is it still inspiration when thoughts flow so fast that sentences neither begin nor end before the next quite unrelated words take their place? I think not. Having struggled during the course of most of the mornining to pin down a suitable idea on which to write, three short videos caught my attention and put my self-indulgent dithering right back into context...
The 1st video demonstrated the human tendency to hide from truths that we view as better avoided.
...and I knew that having watched these videos, those of us who already believe that..It's Time..for us all, as one Human Race to...
* Open our eyes
* Clear our minds Of Predudice, &
* Stop Fighting, except for Peace..
... would be saddened, sickened maybe, but most likely strengthened in our resolve. Those who didn't and still don't feel any of those things - then you have lost your humanity, and I doubt that anything I could say would make any difference. Sincere thanks to Margeret Hefferman and TEd Talks, Why Don't You Try This? and Upworthy International and their brave news team for the use of ther outstanding videos.
