Ain’t the above so true my Pandas? I read it and was like YEAH! most people have lost sight of the important things in life. Why is that? I do know one thing though, a lot of us are starting to become collectors of things. It’s like the more we have, the more we are accepted and liked by society, or so we think. What the hell ever happened to love and being loved solely on who you are as a person? I think we look at all these “celebrities” on the cover of magazines and/or social media and for some reason people are breaking their backs trying to acquire a similar lifestyle. It’s not possible people. The average Joe does not make millions. The really sad thing is, that I know of people who wasted all their money on a high end Porsche or Ferrari, yet live in a fucking shit hole. You know why? Because they want to be on the streets showing the image of wealth off. Through their eyes, material possessions mean more. And if they knew someone who had even more, they would probably use them to acquire the same amount of things. It’s just one big greed-fest. I mean it might as well say, ‘love thy neighbour’s car’ in the ten commandments.
Personally I think most of us have lost the plot slightly. We forget that materialistic things are not what life is all about. It’s about connecting, travelling, eating, exploring, loving, comforting, soothing, lusting and exciting experiences. It’s about using your senses to the fullest. Touching, smelling, seeing, hearing and tasting everything that’s out there. I personally, would prefer good friends, a loving partner, a healthy family and happiness. What would I even learn from having a bunch of materialistic things? What love would I get in return? The answer is nothing! It’s a superfluous kind of existence. A shallow, hollow, soulless, lifeless existence.
I want to laugh from my belly. I want to eat exotic foods from exotic lands. I want to be touched from the love of a soul-mate. I want to hear dolphins playing and see pandas in the flesh, not just in photos or videos. I want to have in-depth soul shattering conversations. I want the sensation of butterflies in my stomach when the man I love looks at me in that way. I want the wink between two friends and an inside joke. I want to feel sand in between my toes. I want to hear the ice cream van come around the corner, filling me with my wonderful childhood memories. I want to be touched in all the right places. I want the feel of kisses all over my body. I want to be wanted. I want to feel piano keys vibrate a beautiful melody as I play. I want to dance with a lover in the rain. I want to sing at the top of my lungs in the shower. I want to feel my mom’s hugs. I want to taste the salty sea in my mouth. And most of all, I want to breathe the intoxicating fragrances of freshly cut grass and my grandma’s bread that’s been baked to perfection. I want life at the end of the day. The unabridged version. And no, I repeat NO car, or article of clothing, or accessory or blah blah blah, is ever going to give me the same feelings.
So what the hell are you waiting for?! Start loving the right way. Connect and be happy. God knows, this world would be a kinder place with more love and happiness in it.
Peace, Love and Deep meaningful emotions…
