There is a perfect world in my head, it's trapped just like I am
Well, I am getting tired of this world. Maybe not the whole world but a good part of it. There is no sense of freedom or safety. There is 24/7 talk about wars and bombings and gunmen on the news. We can just go where we want to go without proper ID’s, we can’t do what we want without worry of breaking some law, we can’t say what we want to say without worry that big brother may be watching. I just want to get away from it all. Go to a place where everyone is like your best friend (the one that calls just to see how you’re doing and would do anything to make your day better), where the land is for everyone (no passport, ticket, or permit needed to go swimming in a beautiful jungle waterfall), where you can hunt and fish and have fresh food everyday with all the people around (no license required, no reservations needed and no expensive check), where you and your friends can run around to different places and be carefree (no murderers, no terrorist, no laws, no people looking at you like you shouldn’t be there), a place where you can lay in the grass, see the stars and sleep (no city lights making the sky look like it only has 20 stars). I want to go experience the Earth as it was put out for us. Yes, there are good things that come with the way things are now (to me, mainly medicine and my guitar) and they are why we need to keep striving to better ourselves. Still, I feel like an animal in a zoo. Yes, the convenience is nice and I have more than I will ever need but I want the simple life. I want freedom. I wish there was a way to have both freedom and the perks of the modern world. When I have kids, I want this all for them. I don’t want to have to give them a talk about why they can’t talk to strangers or why they can’t roam off with their friends just because I can’t see them or explain why they have to remember to lock the front door. I’m sure, somewhere in the world, there is such a place, at least I like to think that there is, where people can live like this. If I could, I would take my friends and kiss this life goodbye! If anyone does read this, please tell me your ideas of a world you want to live in.
You have ideals that conform with your conditioned value system, in reality right and wrong, good and bad, are completely subjective, they have no inherent worth but for what they mean to us personally, something we choose or are conditioned culturally to gravitate toward.
The truth about reality is “cause and effect” there is no connotation on occurance whatsoever, not until we artificially construct one, and in the true reality of cause and effect, the universe IS perfect, completly harmonious because it works in every way that it does, there is only nothing where it does not work.
Freedom and the perks of a modern world, huh? Most people do not know how to control themselves, so rules have to be established. If there were no rules, people would give into the flesh every chance they get. Would you rather listen to someone else or do what you want? Most people want to do what they want, but there are some fucked up people in this world.
I believe I understand your desire. I fucking hate living as a slave. (I have to trade my time for money to survive aka i have a job). The world you describe is nice, but in order to have “the perks of the modern world” people have to suffer. Nobody would pick up trash or work at stores or run the electric companies or install pipes if they didn’t have to. The motivation to do those things is money, something needed to survive in this world. I dislike living in the zoo run by the government, but I am forced to because I rely on them to build streets so I can drive to work and to provide clean water so I can drink and take warm showers.
The sad thing is people actually like living this way. Humans are designed to worship something and elevate others. So they allow themselves to become slaves so they don’t have to think or do anything that is difficult. It is much easier to work a job you hate for eight hours and pay someone for groceries as opposed to gathering your own food and living in complete freedom.
Have faith, there will be a way out of this hell eventually. That’s my hope
@nobodylies, I know all people can’t live in a world without rules but some can. That’s why I say I would take my friends. My friends and I have been to Iraq and back and I trust them with my life. If I could just get us out of here, I know we would be able to live in peace. We have a weird bond where I know it would work and we all know how to conduct ourselves to make things be good for everyone.
haha so it’s you and your friends and fuck the rest of the world? I’m sure that’s exactly what the pilgrims thought when they escaped from Britain to establish a new world where everyone’s voice counted and there would no longer be under the rule of some horrible government (or king’s rule).
I don’t doubt that you have a bond with your friends and I respect you for going to war and surviving, but the “fuck the world let’s live on our own” style of thinking isn’t the most successful. Milkshakes melt, people change. I understand that you are wishful thinking but if you truly have friends like that than you have almost won the game. You are not alone and it seems like you don’t give into the bullshit non-thinking ways of this world. Where do you live that you think it’s so bad? America?
@jewelmoseley, Some can live in harmony in this world, what do we do with the other 90% of people that reside on this planet? NOTHING will change until we, ourselves, realized how fucked-up we are. One person professing this truth will be snuffed out as quickly as he stood up, one million people will be like a loaded gun aimed at the governments head.
@nobodylies, Yes, I live in America. Southerner. Not the best place. Iraq is safer than a few cities close to me. It’s not a “fuck the world” type view (lol, nicely put), it’s just that I know that there are crazy people out there. I wouldn’t trust my life with just anyone. If I’m going to leave, I have to feel safe. I know that this would never happen, I just wish there was a way I could get my friends and I somewhere nice. We could all use a lot less stress.
@connerj93, Yes, I know. I know I will probably die without ever seeing any type of change. The world is a messed up place and you have to play the hand you’re dealt. Good hand or bad hand, I just don’t want to play! That’s not the world I live in though, I have to play.
i think that you have to make your own place of peace. a place where you can be you. we have to work, we have to go to our jobs. there is no way of getting around that. we have all the rules that we have because there are crazies in this world. i guess how i cope with it (work,school, stresses, etc.) is you just have to suck todays dick. ie. just go to work, do what needs to be done, then after then its time for you to get in your peace. having something to look forward to makes whatever it is so much more enjoyable. knowing, hey if i get my work done, i get to go home. that makes me so happy thinking that. i dont know if that makes sense. i too wish i could go live somewhere on my own with the people i trust and love. i know we could make it too, but we cant sadly. one love.
