I believe pursuing the human connection is one of the most important goals in the universe. The connection between all human beings and the universe in which we perceive is something a majority of the world has forgotten about. It’s the most primal and instinctual link that we have with all living things and our environment so how could we have strayed so far from such a profound attraction? Somewhere during the evolution of humanity we became obsessed with novelty and we became enthralled with possession. We placed high value in all material things and claimed them as our own; but that wasn’t enough to fill our insatiable desire for wealth. So we turned against each other and suppressed other human beings for our own gain.
Welcome to the present day, humanity is at the peak of technological advancement. Cutting edge technologies improve every day and we approach the practical birth of quantum computing. Hell, we even created a space probe, Voyager 1, that is traveling through Interstellar Space (the physical space within a galaxy not occupied by stars or their planetary systems). Humans are connected over unbelievably vast distances and can communicate almost instantaneously.
Yet, it seems we have become so disconnected from each other on a human level. We’ve placed a currency on everything and we exchange these currencies without really experiencing or interacting with each other. We’ve become obsessed with owning things and becoming the best. We’ve become so intrigued by how many likes we have accumulated on our current selfie or how many favorites our clever tweet has received. We destroy our Earth and we decimate a multitude of species on our planet. However, I am also responsible of this because I am a result of the culture in which we live. I have made these same mistakes and I am devoted to changing that fault. We forgot that we evolved on this Earth together. Our feet have touched the same soil and we’ve experienced the same sun; the same warmth.
The truth is, we’ve lost our way. Many people have forgotten that we are capable of taking action. That we are capable of connecting with each other again. We are capable of connecting with the universe in which we were born. We need to stop being so selfish and we need to start caring about others and the places in which we live. We must understand that we are an extraordinary species, given the power to process complex emotion and to think logically. We have the power to change the world in a positive way, to connect the lives of people across the globe and maybe one day connect with others across the universe. Remember that there is a deeper purpose than the materials in which we place our priorities. We have a deeper purpose than we could have ever imagined. The beauty of life is discovering that purpose. If you take anything from this blog it should be to go out and experience the world, experience humanity, experience the universe and provoke positive change. Change the world so that humanity can move forward in a positive way so that we can grow intertwined with the universe.
Open your mind, explore the world and subject yourself to the universe.
