A Darkly Glass

Chaos Theory by Chrissan

Remaking the world will be no easy task. It is not simple to take walk into chaos and create from the void. But the exodus away from reality will lead every dreamer to such a place.

Disappointment has many faces: a lost job, a failed relationship, an estranged child, unrequited love, the betrayal of a friend. Disappointment can strangle the breath of hope and send us writhing to our knees. They make us ask: How did we get here? Who indicted us for our ambition? And why the hell were we sentenced to such cruel and unusual punishments? Why begin to wonder why we ever stared out on this journey.

At the risk of sounding apathetic, it must be said that these occurrences are common to living. If they are to happen, then they will happen. It is a waste of time and energy to try to avoid them. As if we are equipped to wrestle with fate. Instead we should develop a way of dealing with them should they happen. So that when we can perceive of these moments as opportunities: to be promoted, to mend, to move on, to reconcile. To change the situation through a change in perception.

Chaos should not be feared. Chaos is the opportunity to create. It is exactly what we want on the journey in pursuit of. A place of possibility. We may not have expected it to be such a dark and empty place, but that doesn’t matter. If we remain focused in the darkness, we will recognize the moment and seize it. And when we emerge from the void, it will be a void no longer because our presence in the void, our willingness to withstand the chaos, will have changed it completely. Chaos will bring us face to face.

Our Violet Ambitions will guide us through chaos.
