People can think whatever they want about me, but the prejudice and adversity just causes me to prevail. In other words, minus my health, I am not very discouraged by adversity and tribulation. In fact, I consider myself to be resilient. For the most part, I can easily bounce back from disappointments.
I believe that when the time is right I will go at it full-fledged. I know that I have what it takes inside to accomplish anything I desire to achieve, but I also do believe in a certain element of fate, and accordingly, I believe that there is a time and place for certain things. I am trying right now to heal carefully and not push my body beyond its physical limitations at any given moment, lest my chances of living a healthy, vital life are compromised.
Some — a small number of people that I have spoken with believe that I am living in a “fantasy” world with my vision and need to get “out” there. I have tried to explain to them that the system/structure must be set in motion before I can proceed to carry out my plan. I understand that the structure I create will not be flawless, as I do not believe in the idea of “perfection,” and I acknowledge that it will need adjustments, and I am aware of this; however, I am trying my best to devise it to the best of my ability before attempting to execute it.
Martin Luther King lead by Vision, and he has, for the longest time, been a role model of mine. He has character and morals similar to my own. Granted, I am much younger than him and also from a different time era, but we share similar values. At any rate, we both shared an embodied vision of our future and both share a single-minded, determination in carrying out that vision.
I will work until my very last breath to fulfill this vision, for not ever having had it in my life accompanied by a spiritual nature is what drives me and fuels the fire. I have a larger vision for myself and my family. I am a simple person with simple needs and an intensely rich inner life. I am interested in only the simplest but the richest ways of living, from filling my body with nourishing, wholesome fruits and vegetables to getting adequate, quality sleep to meditating and exercising.
LIVING, BREATHING, WALKING, INSPIRING, CREATING
Life, fire, water, air, and earth. I need little in life but the basics and a few close friends. My priorites are definitely being defined, and I am being shaped every minute. I am interested in what’s important, not in maintain a superficial, artificial life. I will harness my energies and prepare to release these energies adequately. Once I have completely defined what I want I will simplify it, taking something very complicated and watering it down, but nevertheless not losing its quality or rich “nutrients.”
There is life that lives inside of me. There is hope. There is strength. There is beauty. I am interested in restoring faith — focusing on the big picture. My primary motive is not money – a product of the ego that gets the best of so many individuals.
I am interested in maintaining and developing relationships — bridging the gap between the hearts of others and making peace. I am a pacifist at heart. Integrity is my God and honesty my strength. I am interested in preservation– preserving the roots of community – immediate family and extended loved ones.
