Do you find that you get some days which just seem so much worse than others? When you can be in the middle of a crowded, noisy room, with all of your friends, and still lonely? Today was one of them days for me. I think that there are too many days when the world seems, dull, unattractive, boring and mundane. In these modern times, the life had lost its purpose. Only by pain and suffering and death, which we are trying separately to alleviate, can we truly appreciate all the good things in life. How many of you, wish the world was a different way? I do. All we need is hope and to dream, and we CAN change the world. I have found an excellent quote on this subject which I have posted below.
Always Forever: book three of the age of Misrule, by Mark Chadbourn.
'In a bleak room filled with hard men, a cold wind blew. For as long as anyone can remember they had dreamed the world their way; and it was a world filled with lies and power and money, of subtle manipulation and limpid promises, where fragile creatures were held in place by a little of this and a little of that, but never anything that mattered. Yet beneath their arrogance lay fear, for sooner or later the scales might fall.
A lie was needed to cement their rule. A Big Lie. Lives were shattered in the telling of it, families were torn apart, good men and women twisted out of shape. But the hard men were right to be afraid, for even in the worst worlds, good men and women aspire; and inspire.
With that same arrogance, the hard men believed no one could be moved by a world without money or power, dreams were for children; dreams had no power. And so they released the means to their downfall. The Lie proved more seductive than the world which they had wished; it was filled with love and wander and friendship and hope and faith; and meaning; a world where anything could happen.
A wish was all it took; because if you wish hard enough you can change the world.
The Lie became the Truth, and everything that hadn’t happened, had happened. Five people quested through untold hardship; they plumed worlds beyond imagination, rubbed shoulders with the god and beasts; and in the end brought the magic back home.
This is how it was, and is, and will be.
The cold wind blew the bad things right away. The hard men no longer existed. The hard men never existed. Their world was just a bad dream; and only bad dreams have no power.
The Blue Fire is in everything.
And the world turns slowly towards the light.'
How do you wish the world was? Do you wish enough to change the world?
Changing The World
I wish the world population was more peaceful. It's important to be considerate of other people's feelings and thoughts.
As for being lonely in a room full of crowded people, I've felt that way many times.
I feel like that, "changing the world" is a away message I like using on AIM. I liked that passage you posted alot BTW.
