Existential dreams and desires, and the will of fire
Dreams and Reality
Fusion of dreams and reality rarely come-to-pass and yet at the epicenter of our lives we precisely envision the unity of these two paradigms. In our greatest moments of inadequacy we again find ourselves reaching towards heavens through the ethereal veil of existence grasping at the potential of what could be. Humorlessly these euphoric visions of fulfillment infrequently occur in the lives of many people. Instances of extreme emotion catalyze these experiences thus granting solidarity for all if only for a brief moment. Inspiring heroes among us continually forge new paths towards this singularity of existence and give hope to many in search of completeness.

Though these heroes are real, their numbers are few, and they alone cannot achieve fulfillment for all. Food, water, shelter, biological needs, in-short survival, distracts us from quieting our minds and pondering our existence. Social mechanisms have congealed into a mass movement of collectivism that decides our values, worth, and ultimately our existence. As technology advances and the integration of information becomes entangled with our every thought, it is probable to think that such monumental endeavors would be disseminated, unified, scrutinized, and thoroughly inundated with inquiries. Yet each generation spends less time exploring the foundation of existence and more energy on the current moment (existentialism=918 thousand hits, Kim Kardashian=118 million hits, Google).
Escape from our own minds, and keeping up with the social tide, drives our lust for entertainment and the state of thoughtlessness
Focus lacking lemmings are increasing in number and embodying humanity. Technological advancement is proceeding without existential growth. Escape from our own minds, and keeping up with the social tide, drives our lust for entertainment and the state of thoughtlessness. Endeavoring for monetary power fuels our routines and establishes our existential worth. Legacies decease without acknowledging existence beyond facades…
Not every human has the capability nor understanding to venture into the creation and/or the manifestation phase of visions into reality. As such is the diversity of our species. However, a large population within us exists with the fuel, desire, ambition, and vision of these goals as you mentioned, and only a fraction of us succeed. The reason for this can be broken down to a single factor, fear. “Successful people overcome”. This is one of the most true phrases ever.
It is the relentlessness of this individual which fuses the dream into eventual reality with no other cause than the necessity for something to exist with persistent pressure.
In our lives, endless challenges arise, thus is the nature of existence. The necessity of food, water, shelter, and the desire to fulfill biological needs will never cease. However, one with such a mind-frame, successful people overcome- or I will overcome everyday regardless of my situation- is the one that publishes the dream regardless of the circumstance. It is the relentlessness of this individual which fuses the dream into eventual reality with no other cause than the necessity for something to exist with persistent pressure. This pressure is felt through the death of a family member, through ‘a bad morning’, through children, through poverty and wealth.
What death can be more glorious than when pursuing ones dreams?
It is fundamentally based in an internal infrastructure determined to operate on the max capacity of your ability in any given time to accomplish tasks that will ultimately give life to a goal. Ironically, it is not just the fulfillment of the goal that causes the goal to come to life, it is the steps taken in-between, the communication, the creation, the education. When this time for self appreciation and self realization is not set apart, time will consume itself, as it naturally does.
Fear holds us back ultimately through causing us to doubt our capabilities, doubt our worth, and doubt the value we will bring to the world not realizing we are part of a whole which must ultimately desire your creation, hence your internal fire to create it. We are connected in this way. If one works through fear, regardless of the emotional or “thought” worldly consequences, a manifestation will begin to be apparent. However, without external, exposed to the world action, nothing will be created.
It is living with your true internal identity.
Mistakes should not hold us back as they are on every single quest, of every single species. The ultimate mistake is not doing, “A coward dies everyday, A brave man dies only once”. What death can be more glorious than when pursuing ones dreams?
Many of the people we speak of live within their minds and perhaps with several close friends. However, how can a dream manifest and fuse into reality within such a malestorm? It must be brought into the fire of the people…
Where will we be in 50 years, 100 years, 1000 years?
Rather, will we be? What does it mean to be human? Is it purely biological or are there other factors that encompass what it means to be human? Will our definition of humanity change as we change? Will humanity still be humanity if humans become mechanized drones that lack the ability to be creative and think independently? Perhaps the more appropriate question is what kind of humanity do we want to nurture and build? Will humans become a species that looks up at the stars with wonder and amazement and radiates with the will of fire that focuses on our dreams and yearns to discover what is undiscovered? Or will we idolize superficial amusements and disregard any thoughts that go beyond the current moment.
