In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Be the Change.”
Change is ALWAYS good. Whether it’s good or bad change. We may not always think that because at the time of a “bad ” change we are devastated and at times at our lowest emotionally. But with time even the bad change has a great outcome.
Did you know if every one in North America gave a dollar less than a dollar a day, there would be no world hunger?! Crazy , right!?…. but there is so much social noise around us that it doesn’t allow us to see this information/fact! Dont you see? The world does not want you to see! The world is blocking your vision with alcohol, drugs, social media, propaganda, and extensive (not necessary) technology. Every one’s brain is fogged up (rhymed with ‘fucked’ up). no pun intended.
I hope for every one to one day open their eyes to the world that is NOT their own. To see how other people live their lives, and to seek change in helping the less privileged.
I made a change. Any one can do it. Last July I went to Ghana and did sooo much and amongst them allowed a person who hadn’t walked in 25 years walk !!! We made him a prosthetic limb and he walked!!! Any one can do it. There is so much to do in this world, so many opportunities, we should all help people in need!! It is our responsibility as humans. We owe it to mankind.
See me in the light
for the person i am
not for the person I want to be
it burns me inside
to see you see me like this
but my mind is not here
too much noise
my heart is flowing in the ocean
but it’s polluted in the 21st century
steaming from the inside out
but it vaporizes before you see me beneath you
Think of me !
When I am no longer here
Think of me!
When you’re dreaming
At the end of the day
We all turn into dust
no one lives for eternity
and we all end in the same place
we have for years…
yet we forget
we think we’re inevitable
i will forgive you
I will be forgotten
but don’t forget this one thing
remind yourself every day that you’re not here to stay
no one is invincible
Have you ever had some one who has past away or is no longer in your life, yet there isn’t a single day in your life when you don’t think about them?
Most people who are cognitively heightened do.
Agha joon, is what I called my grandfather. In Persian it translates to exactly ‘dearest man’. Which is exactly what he was to me. He was my everything. And once he passed away everything was taken away from me temporarily. Until I realized that instead of mourning his passing, I need to be living his presence. I thought of every thing he stood for, his manhood, his trust, his wellness, his generosity, his love, his emotional attachment, his humanity- everything! And I decided that every day that he is not here in this world, I will fill in his spot and be more like him. From that day on forward I had a small piece of him with me at all times. And I too became a better person.
I still cry when I think of him but at the bottom of my heart I know that I am no longer mourning his death, rather reliving his life through me.
As degrading as it feels to be embarrassed or ashamed in front of others, at times it is truly necessary to allow the selfish and dignified mankind to go farther on in life and progress. To ever feel that you are better than everyone is to have failed at life. It shows how insignificant you are as a person, and how narrow-minded your thought process actually is. To think that you are better than everyone and act such a way is equivalent to your lack of experience in life. Either that, or your lack of self confidence.
Such experiences are momentarily and they surpass before you know it. Just like pleasant experiences, unpleasant ones also pass us. Eventually we do forget about them, and move on with our lives. But not before it has taught us a lesson.
We should be happy that we can still feel a certain way, even if it’s not the best feeling one could feel. Every single emotion will causes various behavioral changes during the present, but also effects how we react to certain situations in the future. Emotions, whether positive or negative causes change. Change is always good, whether it’s for the better or worse. You may be surprise, but it’s true. Some may say that an adverse characteristic to have as an individual is dependency. Alongside with change comes independence, which makes you a stronger person as a whole without needing to rely on others to gratify certain needs.
To feel sad is good, because then you’ll know what happy feels like.
To feel angry is good, because then you’ll appreciate being calm.
To feel rushed is good, because then you take your time when there is time.

If I could be any one else I would be a Farmer, in a warm country.
There are so many reasons I chose this answer, but to sum it up in one sentence. Because I want to earn what I put in my body and soul.
Nowadays we don’t see where the food that’s on our plate comes from. We don’t see who has grown it or touched it . We don’t see how it has been made or processed. All of this forces us not to appreciate what we are eating. Hence the global destruction of human bodies. Worldwide, specifically in North America people are at their most unhealthiest weight. More and more people are becoming Diabetic, a disease that is preventive! Unlike most diseases which are not preventive (Some). But diabetes (type II) is equally correlated to your obesity. Out of sight, out of mind. It is true, but this is very bad for our people. We are self destructing ourselves. And most people don’t even know it. The best we can do in today’s society is only eat food that looks like food! Nothing processed and nothing that did not look like food 100 years ago! seriously people! wake up!!!!
Because we are human. What it entails to be human is greed, selfishness, self centeredness, and our lovely frontal lobe which is responsible for all the things that I just mentioned. I think the worse curse on humanity is greed. No other animal has it. Only the human. The main reason is to of course advance in life. But at the end, does it really matter how much you advance if you’re already successful and making a 6 figure income?
I just finished watching the movie “Hunger Games: Mocking Jay” and what I have realized is that history repeats itself over and over again. The only difference is that every so often an innovative director or author comes up with a more modern way of displaying it. The story of Hunger Games, or so many others out there like it is NOT NEW. Various groups in different sectors fighting against each other, and having civil war is NOT NEW. It has been written a million times, starting nearly a century ago! Most people wont realize this but they feel a disconnect with the movie but in reality we are living IT as we speak. Everything we see and hear in social media is propaganda. Everything is fake, an ideology, and we are blinded with the noise… so that we don’t see the truth. Because if we saw the truth then we too would want to rebel and cause an uproar in society-but the “capital” does not want us to. At the end of the day we will be gone one day, and a new society will rise, and as long as there are humans in the world this vicious cycle will continue.
