“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Meeting someone again

So I saw someone online that I haven't seen for years. And it seemed like their life was over. They had a great success, but then everything crashed. And now they are back, and they are different. Yet still themselves, and obviously matured and obviously had learned something and gained something in who they are.

While I did enjoy who they were before. I enjoy who they are now, and the differences. Its really a surprise for me. And now in a time where my life is again changing, its nice to see an example where someone changes and overcomes difficulty, and sticks to their decision, and the part of them that is real, even if that part changes and becomes difference, thanks to the difficulties and challenges, even if one initially failed at them and fell, but one did pick oneself up from them to learn.

So learning is about making mistakes, is about seeing what it is about you that is causing problems, and changing it, to create solutions. And one very obvious thing about this person is that they are comfortable with who they are, and it is substantial, it has substance.

I mean, we can't live simply adjusting our environment just to ourselves. That is not practical. We need to adjust and change. We need to become better, and more. Otherwise we will just always be the same, which means the same limitations. Life is about growing and expansion, becoming more. I sure hell want to become the most I could ever Be! And it is great to see someone walking their path and showing that they stood. And this person is even better now! They are doing more! THAT is what life is about. When you stop changing, learning, then your in denial and ego, because you just want the whole world to adjust to you. So that is a lesson I can clearly see this person has learned in embracing what they are capable of and what parts of them that is real that they can share and give to the world.

Life is short. What we each do with it, including me, matters. Together with our collective actions and decisions, including mine, we are creating this world, how it is, how you see it before you. The suffering, the wars, the poverty, the destruction. Part of the reason why this exists, is because we have failed to stop them, and we haven't taken ownership of it to stand up to actually change it. Instead we rather ignore and live a life where we don't change, and so the world doesn't either. We need change. TO change is to grow, is to learn, is to become better/more than who we were before. More insights, more realization, more commitments, more responsibilities, more giving.

The secret to changing this world lies in the everyday moments. The small decisions. Who you are, which includes me, determines the moment, and collectively we create our collective experience.
