Annie, thank you so much for your beautiful words! I believe in my heart that you can pursue this. Never stop chasing.

Matylda, I am tearing up as I read this. To be quite honest, I am glad you lost your job and I am happy for you. Because this means that the universe is pushing you to do more, to allow for space for growth, to show you the way to your dreams. Keep going love.

I could definitely see her work at Burning Man too, amazing stuff.

I cried. Her spirit is so inspiring. I cried even more when I found out she passed. What a beautiful human being.

“I am not assuming you are claiming this to be pertinent to everyone, but before you start proclaiming, as so people tend to do unabashedly, that the course of college and beyond is such depravity of the soul. Such empty hollow pursuits. That nothing can come from it. That its poison. etc, etc, etc you should take a closer look at those courses you hate and respect others to like those things you don’t. And to not think that those who disagree with you either are ignorant, miss the point, don’t get it, buy into the system, or whatever. You made a statement about life as “they” would have us all do, and you claimed that not only was it awful, and evil, and such, but with such certainty that nothing but that could be so.”
I never claimed college to be evil/poison etc. I didn’t claim anything to be that description. Note that I had only mentioned college once. With the intent for it to be only a partial example. The only thing that I had said that I think might have been the most negative connotation was “your soul is depleted”. And that being the cause of a monotonous, passionless life path. One that you are unhappy with because you were forced to choose a common life path because of money-making endeavors, not through the desires of the heart. It’s not solely because of college.
“Because all your metaphors are saying that all your time on the preordained path is set from sun up to sun set and that nothing can come from it unless you go your own way.”
I don’t know how you got the sense that it has to go my own way, as I wrote this so that people can be inspired to create their own way/path by discovering their talents. Like I said before, some people are better off not going to college and pursuing their dreams. And some are way better off going to college to pursue their dreams.. you for example, through finding what you love through college. And that’s wonderful! As long as you find what you love, do what makes you happy, then go for it. College or no college. It doesn’t matter. Everyone has different dreams and they can choose whatever life path they want as long as they stay true to their soul’s purpose.
I appreciate your apology. And I apologize for the slight condescending tone as I was caught in ego defense.
Hope you have beautiful days ahead.

Well you definitely took a lot of what I wrote literally. And clearly poked fun at my metaphors and symbolism without really looking into its meaning:
“‘there is a force that lies within creativity that is similar to birds building their nests, the effortless way that the flower grows from the soil, the intricate design of a seashell, the metamorphosis of a butterfly, and the formation of cotton candy clouds on a blue sky.'” is flowery language ultimately meaning nothing.
And you dissected most of it, then criticized and judged it as opposed to opening your mind to it.
I’m not claiming that this is all valid for everyone. Because I know there are people who are better off going to college and pursuing a degree. Then again I also know of people, including myself, who are better off creating their own path to pursue their dreams.
So you like working in a cubicle that’s great. If you’re okay with it, fantastic. It’s great that you do plenty of “creative and interesting things”. I used it as a metaphor for people who live their lives thinking they have to follow this ordained path in order to be successful without considering if this makes them ultimately happy. If this path is for you, then go forth. I’m not stopping you from doing whatever makes you happy.
Again, you took it too literally when I mentioned “childhood is a time of fighting dragons and aquatic adventures”. I’m well aware of the responsibilities of being an adult and the fact that we can’t always play in the sandbox in the backyard nor fit into the little inflatable pool where I could become a mermaid. I was referring to the curiosity to explore your imagination and the world you inhabit. That spirit filled with eagerness and adventure that fulfills the joys of the heart.
Try reading this again. Through a different perspective. This time, do it without ego-based assumptions and judgments. Read it without any intentions or criticism. Let it sink in.
I wrote this in the attempt to inspire. To awaken the dormant creative spirit that lies within each and every individual. For people to realize that they don’t have to succumb a life path they are unhappy with so instead they can carve their own. That’s all there is to it. Despite the fact that you weren’t so pleased with it, thanks for reading anyway.
Love and light.

*most powerful learning tool ever invented

Take a step back and look at our education system right now. They are putting children in categories where they don’t belong. Not all excel in math. Not all excel in science. Not all excel in english. And all of these standardized exams are discouraging these brilliant children. Because apparently if they fail it, they fail at life. They can’t go to a good college, therefore they’ll never be successful in life. That’s what they instill into their heads. That’s why they’re uninspired. That’s why they don’t want to go to school. That’s mostly why they don’t want to learn. Most schools don’t focus on your passion, especially if it’s through a creative medium. It’s so heartbreaking. Because you could be teaching the next Mozart/Salvador Dali but you’ll never know because you’re too busy criticizing him about his grades in MATH. It’s like what Albert Einstein said “If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid.”
Yes schools educate people, but they’re not doing it right. They haven’t been for a very long time. But this is only most of the westernized education system. Now, thankfully we have schools like Waldorf (here check it out www.whywaldorfworks.org) that is keen on creativity and imagination. And I will always be hopeful that one day this is what our education system should be based on.
Also, what other learning/communication tool do you have that has access to a mini universe of knowledge and information that you can tap into in a matter of seconds? Where people from any part of the world with a working computer and internet can send and receive information in a blink of an eye? Where else can you access an abundant amount world-class educational videos on everything from history to physics for FREE? (another website you should check out www.khanacademy.org/). Or expand your mind through TED talks from countless of inspiring and brilliant people all over the world? Etc etc etc…
So yes, the internet is the most powerful tool ever invented.

“But let it all go..the sooner we realize that we actually have nothing that is trully ours, the faster we can be ourselves and stop caring so much. Surprisingly, we can then become successful but happy with ourselves every single day knowing that we followed our dreams and not resisted them.” Well said. Thank you for reading <3
