What is this world coming to? Each morning I read the news only to find out, that people seems to think violence is the answer to everything. What happened to love conquers all? Why is it that we are all here for the same reasons and yet still so hateful of each other? Let people live the way they want to live, as long as they are not hurting anybody. This seems to be an easy thing to say, but we will always end up hurting someone or another if we have them around us. It is very true when they say you are the hardest on the people you love the most. It is certainly very unfair to them, but you also know that no matter what they know who the real you are; they will always look past the mood. A firm connection of souls for when you are close to people in your life.
I truly believe we all come from the same source; the life that we have chosen is for us to learn. We came here to learn something and the current place that we are in, is a chapter in our life lesson. Maybe this life is not enough to learn, maybe we are not courageous enough even this time around to finally learn what we have to. I have a lot to work on, and maybe I won’t get to all of it this time around either. What plans are made for me, I can’t tell, but I do know for sure that those are one for me to prosper and steps to achieving my goals.
My best friend and I discuss this topic very gingerly; he seems to get a little hyper when it comes to the topic of how what you are is affected by where you came from. The whole nature vs nurture theory. I don’t think it is a vs and or situation; it is a combination of both. But your nurture definitely affects your nature. I talk about this today, because I was reading up on wine appellations, regions and certifications. When you think about it, how important is the soil that we plant things in. Equally important is how we take care of it, though it is given that if the soil is good the plant will thrive with very little maintenance. But both are important, imagine if the soil is not right and something great was planted there, the opportunity to grow is slim. I have seen a weed pop out of concrete, with strong will and determination but you don’t see that a lot.
No matter how hard we try, our surroundings, genes and in the end our DNA does matter. It is also very important who we keep around us to make us better or bring us down. I have read a lot about mind power and how if you don’t allow it, then it won’t happen. It is not as easy as it sounds, controlling your mind can be the easiest thing; but indeed is the hardest thing to do. Meditation does help a lot here, and am trying to make that part of my daily routine. If we teach our kids early on that controlling what’s within them will automatically control the world outside. So if you are happy within, happiness is what you will see in this world. Up in the air again, back to home sweet home, and my kitchen. I have a love/hate relationship with traveling.
