Electrique by ShadyBlues Electrique by ShadyBlues
"For life to grow in any meaningful way, the soil must first be broken, for how else could the seed grow. If you are unwilling to accept that you are exactly akin to soil, you will never understand that this brokenness, which we all experience as a vast array of things, is not because of life’s need to make you a bitter person. Instead it is life prodding you to get off of your feet and speak on this planets behalf, to plant the seeds for future generations, as our seeds were planted before us. If we do not learn from the past we cannot ever hope to see a better future. If the type of seed we use does not seek to improve, why then are we planting it to begin with?

We live in a world on the edge, between global hate and a wider peace, between destruction of our planet and becoming symbiotic as we grow as human beings to understand that if evolution ever served a point, it was to EVOLVE the closed minded thinking by presenting the consequences that will come. But if we do not consciously make the choice, then evolution will not magically grant us amnesty in our sordid lives. 

You do not need superpowers to change the world of everyone around you, because the power we have is already so great that it can destroy worlds. If you refuse to recognize your role, it is because you are the weak link in an evolutionary chain who has failed to use the abilities they were so given. As humans that we would be the one species in a line of billions of species to understand the world on which we live, I cannot then believe that it makes since to throw away what we were given because we were too caught up in our own darkness to ever find the light. Choose to keep what you love on a wider scale than you have currently thought in; you will not be given the amount of opportunities which you think you are entitled to, to resurrect the gift our planet is once we have thrown it away as a species. It is pure animalistic ignorance, and an unwillingness to be human that is leading to this outcome.

I cannot and never will forgive humans for this stage in history, the amount of evil I see in the people around me is not a reflection of an inner personal darkness, it is a REAL threat. We are destroying the one planet in the midst of a universe filled with enough light to thrive, by drowning it in the darkness of our greed. 
There are not enough words in any language to express how deeply this is weighing on my mind, but I will not feel sorrow for your failure to realize your own stupidity: I will feel sorry for the billions and billions we each let down in OUR own human stupidity. This, worst of all, includes the billions of species we do not show any notice because we are caught looking at ourselves in a mirror. If we do not seek to correct these grievous errors in a manner that is appropriately balanced to the magnanimous evil we have already done, we will fall as a species in a way that will be a most ironic end due to our human delusions of grandeur. Not a sound will be heard as the human tree of life falls; there will not be a Human Being around to understand the shame we brought to the gifts we were given.

The failure to act in a manner that is at least as powerful as the apocalypse we have prematurely unleashed, means that we need to vastly over-predict the injustice we have done to this world, and then do that a couple of millions of times over, for if WE do Not, we will be like selfish demons pulling the stopper out of a dam filled with fire and blood to keep our one person alive and happy while millions suffer for each and every dam we break. Never an uglier thing will ever have existed, or probably ever will exist again. I do not want to let my life be a part of that force, if you are understanding what I am saying, you should feel an obligation to immediately make viral what should be the human norm already."
