Dear readers, both real and imaginary.
As you may have noticed, I have not written in a while. I have been posting other writer’s works that I thought were too brilliant to be ignored. In the past year or so I have spent a lot (a lot a lot) of time reading instead of writing. I would not call it a hiatus, because I do not know when and if it will end. But I do know I am not the same person I was when I began posting my thoughts on here. No, that’s not exactly true. I am still me, just with a lot more fine-tuning.
At this point I have a million ideas and beliefs fighting against each other in my mind. Beliefs that are being tweaked and prodded as I mark my presence on this earth. I know that most of the things we humans call beliefs are just ideas that have been put into our heads no matter how independent we think we might be.And those ideas change depending on what stage of life one is in. At the end of the day I had to ask myself why are beliefs so important? If they are so fluid and can be changed by any life event why do we hold on to them so tight? Why are people willing to die for the sake of an idea that was put in their head that they internalized as absolute truth? Why do some beliefs cause war,genocide,slavery.. Why must I respect your beliefs when your beliefs make me an inferior human being in your eyes?
I don’t have some magical brilliant conclusion. I don’t even think I am capable of explaining my thoughts coherently in this post. I guess I am trying to show you a still image of my thoughts..Thoughts that never slow down..Thoughts that run at full speed carrying all sense of stability with them. You can imagine how difficult that is. But still,I’ll be here creating a space that is safe for my thoughts, and yours dear readers, both real and imaginary.
