Fear, mistrust and resignation has frozen us from moving towards that warm and bright tomorrow for many years now.
We have, though we insist on the opposite, frozen ourselves. We have easily given our mind and freedoms to thoughts an the demands of people even if we insist on freedom. We have given up the gift of dreaming for the sake of winning the rat race or just simply existing.
We limited our future to a frozen and desolate place of material, forgetting that value is something that cannot be seen.
But just like the Edison and Tesla slaved away to harness the gift the spark to ease our ways of living, dreams and ideals are not impossible. Whilst harnessing the gift of the spark, these two men never gave up despite the trash talking and ridicule, the poverty and isolation. You won’t be reading this if those two gifts to mankind gave up on the “impossible dream” (electricity). I wouldn’t found a much more easier way to put down my thoughts in “writing”.
Maybe we can move free from this frozen existence if we start to believe in what today seems impossible.
Dreams like, world peace- of unity in diversity, a true fair economy, a harmoniously balanced society. Like a global community wherein racism and other forms of senseless hate are fought with fervor. Wherein ideas are welcomed, and discussion is for unraveling of truth rather than elation. Where concern for others are beyond the sake of “Public
We need to believe that to dream, is to be more than an idealist. We cannot be frozen any longer in the belief that dreams are just ideas that involve only ourselves. We cannot be frozen any longer that these dreams cannot be achieved in the gladiator’s arena. We cannot be frozen any longer in the belief that we are but a single person whose actions are irrelevant in making this world a better place for everyone.
We have to realize the fact that it is our choice to not believe is what has frozen us away from reaching our dreams. That our choice to let society be is what has led to it being broken as it is.
We have to realize that even gladiators had dreams. They dreamt to break free, and that is why they fought.
We have to realize that the dandelion in the spring that we long to find in a time frozen by pride and prejudice, is already within us.
And may we cultivate it in this coming year of 2015.
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!
