Default Tired

I'm so tired of the things going on, of seeing that love here does not work and all I have left to be heard is being bold, being sharp, being lieful; tired of dreaming and see it was nothing but a dream, that I'm still waking up in the same rotting hole with the same rotting people and the same stinky, big and disgusting amount of everything. Tired of having an idea and watch powerlessly how it turns being a piece of surreality which is as nice as void. Tired of feeling bad for something I can't change but I need, even if broken or harming.

So tired I am, that I would look for a comfortable bed on which I could sleep for centuries, on whic I could forget everything and wake up in a brave new world.

But I chose to fight. Restlessly, tired, I will fight for this lost cause.

This may sound like strange advice, but sometimes the best way past a blocked situation, is to quit fighting and instead go the opposite direction.

How to explain .. if one considers themselves to be a 'selfless' type of individual always sacrificing themselves for others or 'causes' then what they need to do is to put themselves first, their wants/needs/hopes/etc at the forefront, and in doing so actually end up having more to give to others in doing so! Its actually a well-known and proven to work strategy that is often used with for example with some woman whom as mothers, whom see themselves as exhausted from all the sacrifices that they made/make for their family. Its only when they start taking care of themselves first that the exhaustion starts to heal.

This is a generic reference, there are also as many narcissistic individuals (woman and men) whom are completely self-absorbed whose opposite would be to practice 'selflessness.

Another line that i heard recently .. goes something like .. if you keep trying to solve a problem with the same solution over and over ... WHY would you expect to get anything but the same results over and over!
It was impossible not to have, It's impossible not to be, It's impossible not to still ...!

What this world really needs is more artists and environmentalists!

"Its only 'here' that we lose perspective, out at the Cosmic Consciousness Level things get a lot clearer. For example, there is an actual star pattern that is traced in the shape of a Willow Tree, across the breadth of the Milky Way! And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"
