For as long I can remember, the driving force behind all my endeavors has been a single cause. A single fear.
The fear of waking up one mine morning to realize, I am useless.
As our societies embrace the vices of capitalism, the dream of equality and justice takes a step closer to oblivion. The rich get to live in Elysium, while the poor are stuck at District 9. That is where the world is headed, and the reason my fear never burns down.
Unhealthy competition nurtured by unrealistic compensations have turned us into guinea pigs on a rat race to the mirage of success. And with my outdated degree, outspoken stance and out-of-style hairdo; I am constantly living on the edge of self-doubt.
Today we need to learn, act and earn faster than ever before, kids are the smartest in human history, dissatisfaction and divorce rates are higher than ever and listening to your heart equates to an unstable state of mind; however the absolute truth of life remain unchanged from yesteryear.
Content(ment) is king.
And in the words of Lao Tzu,
“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
