|Should I stay or should I go…|
That is the question. This begs for a Shaesperean couplet.Should I invest or go to cash?Should I speak up or shut up?Should I have children or not?Should I commit to someone or is it better to be alone…Never has there been more uncertainty and certainty aberrant behavior than nowNever has there been more entitlement, more escapism; from obsessive travel, to compulsive weed smoking. To survilests employing the likes of Vivos, providing underground bunkers for a mere 45,000 for when the apocalypse comes. (I’m not sure that when I emerged from my bunker and the the air was cleansed of nuclear fallout, that I would want to repopulate the world with that community. Just saying.)
We are a world on fire and under siege and we all have our ways of dealing. Millions of tiny subcultures attempting to survive in a world of crazy uncertainty.
I myself am one of those tiny subcultures. I used to strive for Freedom but now I am more interested in solace, to breathe easier, to find the moments, to be liberated to that which I have “No control”.Having more, having enough, being enough is the fuel that defines us. Billions of voices screaming in some dissonant convergence.
There is no solid ground, but maybe that was always an illusion. Maybe we are just more connected to that which we can’t control more than ever before. There seems to a lot of “Never Before’s” happening on a daily basis. There is no lead up to insanity. No groundswell. No visible signs along the way. We have by-passed the middleman and now go right to crazy.
I am an old white guy trying to stay current. It’s like holding on to a slippery rock with my fingernails in a level 5 rapid.
When do you just let go and let the rapid take you? Not yet… not quite ready.So here we are again as you wake-up to fight the good fight with whatever weapons you have, with whatever bunker you’re in, with whatever fuel that’s available to you.
I am riddled with appreciation, disgust, love, admiration, and anger for all of my human family.I wish I could be a more noble human being, but I started with such a deficit as an entitled white person, that I have to make up a lot of ground.
So with the conundrum of “should I stay or should I go?”, I always go with the context- Am I running away from something or running towards something? Ask the question of yourself and the answer will tell you what direction to take.
