Exodus

8 Jul

There is a reason most people do not rise far above the platform in which they are born. There is a reason that the lofty visions of youth are rarely attained. There is a reason the country is falling to pieces before our eyes. It is because we have forgotten how to create. Instead we have taken up residence in a dilapidated way of life where we scramble to replicate what has already been created and call it new. It seems to difficult to build something new. We believe that it is impossible, or nearly so.

Whatever the excuse, and they are excuses, we pull into the driveway of whatever mediocre path we have chosen. We open the door to complacency. We find a warm comfort in knowing that what we have is enough to sustain us: we can pay our bills and feed and clothe our families (even if only barely or with assistance). We curl up on our fears and never wonder about the windows that are shut so tight that dreams will never drift inside; so tight that peace, without the air of hope, becomes a stifling blanket of impotence that destroys our creative will. We nestle into a silent misery and stagnation becomes our home. In fact, it becomes our prison.

In the Time of Dreamers, people will become so disgusted with the facade of happiness and the mass acceptance of a bleak reality that they will take an exodus from the confines of reality. They will walk away from the limitations of society and go out into the darkness to create. The journey towards making dreams come true begins with one step. Desperation and disenchantment will fuel the courage that is needed to take that step. It is a journey and every journey begins with one step. The dreamers will be the first to make that step. When they do, the world as we know it will never be the same.

We got Violet Ambitions.
