This will be the end

This will be the end - Barbara Johnson

They say that life is what you make of it. They say that if you let your fear rule you, you will never be happy. You’ll never succeed on doing anything right. You’ll be your own enemy. They say that before others try to bring you down, you will not allow yourself to grow, to discover who you really are, or what you are capable of.

I don’t know to what extent all the above are true. Maybe there is more to our brain than we know. Maybe at cerebral level, our thoughts are the ones weaving the reality. Maybe that theory of keeping only positive thoughts is what makes us successful, is true.

Maybe that’s what makes the difference between winner and a looser. A winner does not see loosing as an option. For him, there is only way to go, and that is up.  There are no turning backs, no ifs, no regrets, no doubts. He can’t afford to think what he would do in case of failure. A winner is too busy planning viable, successful strategies that would lead him where he needs to be.

We do live in a tough world where thousands are dying each day, being squashed by their peers. As specie, we are worse than any other animal. We kill each other just for fun. We forgot that once we were one. We show no compassion, empathy or sympathy for the weak, unless there is someone around to see us doing so.

We care more how others perceive us and we would do anything for power. This is what drives us; this is going to kill the mankind. We don’t have to fear that climate change, dinosaurs, or any catastrophic event would destroy us. We are quite good at self-destruction. We polluted the entire planet, consumed its natural resources, tore apart countries, and yet we blame it on others. And for what did we do all that? For a few bucks more?

People are enslaved with invisible chains. They still don’t see that money is an evil. They think that if they can buy whatever they want from a high definition flat screen TV, an awning montreal to a luxury car or a property abroad, they are happy. They are fools to think that once the system crashes, they will be safe. No one will be safe, unless they would live off the grid, being completely self-sustainable. But even then, safety is a question of luck. It might depend on how well they could defend themselves against the mad hungry crowds.
