What upsets me most, at this point in my journey is that I have finally come to see what a glutinous selfish life that i lead.. Whilst “at home”i yearn for an organic homegrown existence, far from big cities and “mainstream ”culture, what I have come to realize is that mindset and dream is a western self absorbed reality.
What privilege we have, to say “i don’t eat this” or “i’m allergic to that” when there are those in this world who are lucky to eat but once a day!
We sit there and daydream and ponder ways to enrich our souls, to “do what we love” well how fkn self absorbed is that!!! There is a big unforgiving world out there that people, millions of people, are braving each and every day just to survive... just to see their family survive!
So what i ask this? If you were to switch shoes, just for one day how would you survive?
Would you do the Western thing and ask yourself “what did i do to deserve this? “ or would you fight? Fight harder than ever to get through every day, to see your mother, your baby, your sister or brother have a roof over their head??
There are more people, with bigger stories of despair sitting around the world with smiles on their faces. Brighter than we can forge our on hardest of days!
Maybe if we pulled our heads and our dreams out of our ass, would we truly understand what needs to be done!
