I think its funny sometimes, when people tell me this world needs more Heroes. And while I agree to a certain extent with that sentiment. I tend to toe the line between good and just about as close as you can get to evil. So, I suppose the balance of the complexity of our duality is absolutely what makes us human. Does it make us weak though? Arguments on both ends I am sure could be stated to say that it is or isn’t. And I am sure whomever would argue that point would need to know how it works before sounded kind of idiotic. I think the balance is what keeps this world sane, what keeps it going in the direction that it should. Is it for me or anyone to really decide which side should prevail? I don’t really think so, I think that really is the beauty of it “The Struggle”.
At the end of the day, we kind of have to embrace ourselves for whatever we are at any given time. We can try to be good, I think that’s important, but we more often don’t succeed when we try too hard. One would also ask the question, is there really even a true side that we can take? I’m sure religious scholars will gloat that Christianity will win out in the end. Or any faith for that matter will eventually win out at the final battle or fight. But what if they were wrong? What if it is actually just about living the good life that you possibly can. And hopefully in that expanding your mind to a greater feat than you could possibly imagine? I’d love to think that that is what I am here to do, try to understand things in the best way I know how. And contribute to this thing called life in any way that I possibly can.
That’s why I started this thing, I feel like bringing people together for one common purpose. Is truly one of the best things you can do as a person, you can make their dreams come true. And hopefully find meaning in it somewhere, and give it the attempt at the success of it that you can. Are we good? Or are we evil? I don’t know the answer to that question, and maybe in the next life or the one after it will be explained to me.I just keep breathing, keep pushing and making my personal aspirations come true. Isn’t that what we are all trying to do? Your struggle is not your own, always remember that you have people that you can count on. And don’t lose hope, because without that you don’t really have much to rely on. =)
