Words of thought. The Passion. The sacrifice.
The uncertainty of the other side. The uncertainty of the glory.
The faith. The pious ability of the individual.
What does all this mean?
The desire to create on the highest level of innovation is something we crave more than anything imaginable. To unleash the young genius and change the world in the process. The insurmountable hurdles you find in your journey to this truly palatable quest is something that has so many facades to overcome but is above all, possible. Sometimes you run into a mental block and other times it is a physical burden you’ve molded upon your own life. You can’t blame anybody for the either barriers you cast upon yourself. Understandably, the path you allow god to guide you through is not always the most accommodating in the sense of making you comfortable. Your temporary contentment lurks in and you lose sight of the ultimate goal you’ve placed for your legacy. Then take one look up to god and he reminds of every moment you’ve ever endured has led of to this one, the present.
So you sit there, thinking of your current condition. Early 20’s, no kids, and all your friends and family is stationed at home. You see, there’s clearly a comfortable connection with you and home. But what’s being comfortable if you aren’t truly happy with your impact as a human being? What’s settling for selling yourself short? It’s an extremely mentally taxing situation. As you continue to think of everything your life encompasses, you get to the ones you are in-love with, your spouse. You look in their face and realize you could never realize what your heart must realize by tagging your spouse along for the ride. Because for most, true love is more than a meeting of the minds. It’s a meeting between your heart, mind and the universe. One cannot be fulfilled without the other. Your universe will never make sense if you’ve never truly sought after your dreams and aspirations.Your journey may very well drag you all over the world by the snap of a finger, and strapping your spouse to your boot isn’t a feasible or rational task. So in this common sense, you decide to have a meeting of the minds with every person who comes across all of the aforementioned spectrum’s:
Your friends are ecstatic, your family is iffy, and your spouse is devastated. The devastation is what gets to you the most because it comes with tears, screams, history, and most importantly the uncertainty of the other side. The uncertainty of the glory.
With this mental block withstanding, your growth will be insurmountably stunted for you as a human being. You will never become the best you God has created you to be. Unless, you withhold your belief in you and your belief in your mission in life. The world will conspire in every way to stop you in your pursuit to the glory but you have all the capabilities to side step them. To push through and persevere.
The chances must be taken. The faith must be upheld. Because what can we say life was if we never attempted to live it?… Only out of fear. The options are: Total fulfillment or death by default. The meeting of the hearts with your spouse will never be enough. We are no longer our parents generation.The 9-5 job Monday-Friday, Safe planning, living for other people’s benefits will never suffice.
I guess I needed to write this in a 3rd person perspective to understand myself what we all, including myself, continue to wrestle with in our quest to internal happiness and fulfilling our legacies. Your decision is not easy, it’s life altering.
The gateway to your spiritual getaway is not physical happiness, but mental.
