What’s the Point?

I know I can’t be the only one, sitting here, questioning myself, “what is the point?” Almost eight billion living individuals on a planet with billions before this very moment, melding together like grains of sand on a beach of souls, in the grand scheme of things,  indistinguishable from one another. “What is the point?”

An era so dominated by the machine, unique individuality becomes parts of a whole. Simply cogs in a desolate system, focused on profits alone. Pushing us ever forward into the unknown, forcing us to better understand ourselves. Are we only made to work? Is this life controlled by the clock? Is there no escape? “What is the point?”

Struggles between each other over petty reasons, separation between kin over the actions of a group of people thousands of miles away, who in reality only care for themselves and their seat of power. Never once hearing the names of those who so passionately fight for them. “What is the point?”

Humanity as a whole, exposes the individual to themselves, as we are all programmed by our sub-conscious, primal desires, instinctual feelings we can barely describe. Yet, we all know them, see them in our daily life, experience them everyday in different forms, with different people. It is the sins of our own minds that control the world, greed and lust being the two in particular. But, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. The reason I am even able to deliver this sappy ass blog to you is because of human perseverance, and how incredibly strong it is. “I think I’m starting to see the point.”

70,000 years ago, a massive volcano exploded, completely covering the surface of the earth. Mankind was still in its infancy, and was whittled down to below five thousand individuals. But, they survived. Not only did they survive, they thrived by persevering into the unknown. This ability of ours, to persevere through the most impossible of times is what makes you and I so powerful.  “I think I know where this is going.”

Our perseverance is so incredibly strong that our ancestors have never truly failed, what ever we so desired, we received. Our ancestors wanted to understand the twinkling, magnificent bits of light above their heads so they invented astronomy and did just that. Our ancestors desired to build great monoliths to worship the celestial sky above them so they did just that. Not only did we desire to see the heavens above us, we wanted to feel  them with our own hands, and in 1969 we touched the heavens above. “ah ha”

The question to be asked now is not, “what is the point?”, the true question is, “what do I so desire?” For if I am a portion of a whole that can persevere through anything, develop the means to accomplish whatever is desired, and do the unimaginable, then what are we waiting for? We have the strength of our ancestors perseverance within us, whatever it is we want we can achieve, we simply must persevere through it all. And persevere you will, as billions have before you.

  1. I THINK THE POINT OF WHY WE ARE HERE IS NOT ONLY YOUR THOUGHTS,BUT THE IDEA THAT WE ARE TO GROW SPIRITUALLY.THAT WE DON’T GET LOST IN OUR TECHNOLOGY AND FORGET WHO WE ARE AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
