Everything that was, will soon to be. And all that is, will be no more. This is our cycle, an endless rotation in the experience that is existence. It only happens once, but in eternity nonetheless. Just yesterday I was 17yrs old, and in a previous blink just a first grader. It's all relative, and meaningless all the same, full of purpose should we choose to create one. I hope you all took 2020 as a time to reflect, as a moment to pause in humility at the gravity of the universal nature of it all.
Some of you were stuck in an office space, been there your whole lives, never grasping how much life was being wasted in a box. Others spent their lives traveling the world, bragging about how much better they had it than others, only to find out (during these lockdowns) just how empty and stagnant their lives really were. Relationships were tested, those kids weren't enough to keep a lot of you together after all were they? And yet, how beautiful has all of this growth been for the human being. Our arrogance couldn't save us, our religions and our witchcrafts couldn't manifest a cure. It has, from the very start of this, been a display of absolute power from Mother Nature herself, and a reminder of just how insignificant we are in the grander scheme of things.
Moving forward, stay mindful of just how quickly the world changed. Stay mindful of just how fragile we are as a species, how easily the fear of inevitable death shook our economies to their core. Be mindful, because it's all a part of this never ending cycle. I'm looking forward to the ups and the downs of this new decade, looking forward to more growth, looking forward to more reflection. The future is dark and beautiful, light and fulfilling. Don't fight it, learn to be happy in the now. Look at all the details standing in the present, all that life growing around you, and all the death making room for the new. Cheers to the journey yet to have a footprint, a toast to all things glory. Long Live The Villain.
