Through the Seams

This world is extremely flawed: It is dark; it is heavy; it is harsh…and on many a tolerable day, unjust.

But there exists beauty. There exists Joy. There exists moments of greatness which act as catalysts to ignite, rejuvenate, and preserve the flickering flames of hope for humanity.
It is far easier to focus on our darkest of hours.
It is far easier to define our existence by our many short comings, oversights, miscalculations, and cold inhumane calculations.
It is far easier to focus on the discrepancies and disparities of government, rather than the moments of brilliance and selflessness conceived and executed by our very own neighbours; our very own friends and family…even those with whom we share disdain, or hatred.
And though it is easy, (and perhaps even our default setting), it is not the way that it has to be.
It can be better…. We can be better.
Hope is not a paralytic agent, but rather an agent for growth and mobility.
Hope does not stagnate, but rather resonates, mobilises, and revolutionises.
It only takes a shift in thought to see the world anew.
It only takes a shift in perception to be appreciative, to be happy….to feel loved, and feel deserving of such.
Shift!
Mobilise!
Be part of the Revolution!
Be part of the Evolution that is LIFE! We can do better.
We have created technology which aids in instant communication between two continents, (from any corner of the world, to the next).
We have created technology to explore deeper depths of our seas and oceans to better understand the worlds within our world.
We have created sciences specifically reserved for the exploration and understanding of space, animals, forests…even the human mind body and spirit.
All for the noble purpose of connectivity; to simply better connect with all in existence.
We have created, and are constantly tweaking the concept of government, social services, and charity work.
We have created, and are constantly tweaking nation and global legislature.
We have even created, and constantly tweaked legislature/bi laws of war engagement, whilst still searching for a permanent and humane solution to war itself.
It is all for the betterment of humankind; it is all for the safety, freedom, and comfort of humankind.
Admittedly, the problems from which these solutions were spawned should never have existed at all
Though the problems for which these solutions were conceived were undeniably avoidable, it does not negate the fact that these solutions exists, and will continue to grow.
These flawed solutions exist because HOPE for the betterment of humankind still exists.
All is not lost. And despite the negativity, scepticism, ill-conceived, misinformed, and even the blatantly manipulative factors…as a whole, or as a collective, we cannot say that we do not care! We cannot say this world has no beauty.
We cannot say that this world has no hope.
Hope is not a paralytic agent, but rather an agent for growth and mobility.
Hope does not stagnate, but rather resonates, mobilise, and revolutionises.
It only takes a shift in thought to see the world anew. It only takes a shift in perception to be appreciative, to be happy….to feel loved, and feel deserving of such.
Shift!
Mobilise!
Be part of the Revolution!
Be part of the Evolution that is LIFE!
We can do better….
