Seeing things however you want

Life is a hard thing to figure out. There’re billions of people on this planet with an equal number of different opinions. In my line of work, I see thousands of people a day and in the finest capacity one can see them out side of a hospital system; an airport. Watching folks mindlessly float about like the outer electrons of a highly reactive element is both hilarious and horrifying. Trapped in the country of their mind, population 1, if a person sat back and simply observed they would be entertained for hours on end. As I sit here at my gate on standby for a flight I likely won’t get on I’ve seen 4 different people run into each other, a child urinate while turning the dividers into a jungle gym of sorts and listened to a number of breathtakingly pointless and self-absorbed diatribe.

This is it in a nutshell. The world isn’t merely overpopulated with our species, it’s overrun by a countless number of internally constructed worlds constantly colliding. The result is extraordinary…not in a good way…nor necessarily bad way either. I find it all really just odd. I suppose in the end the best thing to do is to assign an emotional response to it. The two most popular seem to be joy and hatred. Well maybe that’s a bit extreme, perhaps like or dislike is more appropriate. You are free to have whatever feelings you want and see the world however you choose. An obvious statement, I understand, but something that needs to really be re-enforced. There’s so much non-sense out there placing emphasis on feeling or seeing things this way or that, it’s really all just crap.

The reason its crap goes back to my opening paragraph. A person isn’t just seeing the world through their eyes, they’re seeing billions of little worlds dancing within the mainframe of a bigger world…one that’s shaped entirely by the individual’s collective experiences which in turn forges their perspective. You and I can not turn back the clock on life. We can’t change those unpleasantries chance threw our way and thusly are as much in control as out of control. For many folks this is what life is, whether they reside in one of the numerous economically disadvantaged countries on our planet or were simply dealt an insanely shitty hand in the “first world”, it is an up and down roller coaster with no immediate exit in sight.

With all this going on I simply suggest to take it for what it’s worth. If you find yourself disliking something then it’s probably safe to say it has little value to you. Little value should be assigned the according amount of your time, energy and emotion. The things you like feel free to assign as much of yourself to those as possible. Provided what you’re doing or not doing isn’t ridiculously heinous see the things in your life however you want. It’s your life to feel and do however the hell you want. There’re too many competing forces, too many folks caught up in their own realities to spend any of your time not working solely on the construct of your own. Harmony and balance will work their way out, or they won’t, that’s not your concern. Ultimately you are the only thing that matters.
