“The world has no existence whatsoever outside the human imagination. It’s all a ghost, and in antiquity was so recognized as a ghost, the whole blessed world we live in. It’s run by ghosts. We see what we see because these ghosts show it to us, ghosts of Moses and Christ and the Buddha, and Plato, and Descartes, and Rousseau and Jefferson and Lincoln, on and on and on. Isaac Newton is a very good ghost. One of the best. Your common sense is nothing more than the voices of thousands and thousands of these ghosts from the past. Ghosts and more ghosts. Ghosts trying to find their place among the living.”
Lost souls searching for something,
a comforting contentment of another time,
when there were less questions and more smiles,
or so we imagine.
Lost souls searching for answers,
for a moment of peace amongst the bustle,
for some salvation hidden in the scattered dreams,
that once shone so bright.
Lost souls, lost souls.
Where will you go?
Lost souls, lost souls.
Seek until you find.
Happy Tuesday… I’m currently enjoying my last Tuesday of unemployment until the new job starts on Friday.
With the sun shining and the garden to myself, I was all ready to put some words to WordPress. And then I went to plug in my laptop charger. Of course, it was broken. And of course, my laptop was lagging in battery life. But nevermind (a quick visit to Amazon means a replacement is on its way), I shall just be stuck to typing on the phone instead. So apologies in advance for the multitude of mistakes that will undoubtedly appear!
Anyways, this isn’t a post about my laptop’s battery (or lack of). I wanted to sit and write and share.
I moved back from London to my hometown in Yorkshire, where I lived for 18years and where my first ideas of the world formed, around a month ago. And it’s nice.
If you told me three years ago when I was packing my bags for the Big City that I would be back here, I would never have believed you. But that’s the thing with life, it’s constantly changing.
A movement so quick,
or was it so slow?
A sight not seen.
The real reality?
A place unknown.
Unlike the norm.
Breathe, breathe, breathe.
“It had never occurred to me that if no one taught us how to think this way, we would not think this way. And yet, that’s the way it is.
“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you, and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
“When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life and try not to bash into the walls too much…that’s a very limited life.
“Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact—everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you…shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just going to live in it versus make your mark upon it. Once you learn that, you will never be the same again.”
“I remained too much inside my head and ended up losing my mind.”
See what is in front of you, not what you wish to see.
