“There is a language older by far and deeper than words. It is the language of bodies, of body on body, wind on snow, rain on trees, wave on stone. It is the language of dream, gesture, symbol, memory. We have forgotten this language. We do not even remember that it exists.”
A Language Older Than Words, Derrick Jensen
We know so much more about our Universe and its surroundings. We know a lot more about the minim parts of our bodies. We have even proven that our cells are made of stardust. What is left unknown are the reasons behind why we’re here and what happens when we cease to exist.
It becomes a great weight in our spirit to keep this question in mind. We’re much better off when distracted by friends and stuff. But if we dare to be honest, who doesn’t worry if they’re really living in the best way possible. Who doesn’t feel that maybe some effort should be focused in making Life a bit more meaningful?
We have the need to give meaning to things, words, actions, so of course, we have the inner need to give Life a meaning.
How can I make my Life to be more meaningful?
Grow a Tree, Write a Book, and Have Kids.
Is the answer that simple...?
Stay in touch with nature, take care of it and help it flourish. Allow nature to teach you stillness. Write a Book, investigate, research, help someone through the use of your time to find out something important to them or to mankind, share it. Have kids, or help them grow. If you can’t have them on your own, take care of the ones that unfortunately are left uncared for. They’re the Future.
But all of this, do it with honesty. Find the Love you have in yourself and for yourself, and only then think about changing the outside world.
“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”
Another question thats is often is our mind is: what kind of Book should I write, how can I find out what story is mine?
“That thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, too early in the morning, too late at night. That thing you read about, write about, think about, in fact fantasize about. That thing you do when you’re all alone and there’s no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. That’s it. That’s your thing. That’s your heart, your guide. That’s the thing you must, must do.”
And remember, no one has it easier. Whether you have more money or a lot less, the essence of Life is a mistery unveiled to all. No matter your roots, your upbringing, your teachers, we’re all creatures of the unknown, in thirst for deep connections, Love, Joy and Peace. Keep that in mind.
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
