YOU'RE NOT A TREE
Did you know. The odds of being conceived are 1 in 400 trillion.
That exact moment you were born you were the luckiest person alive. You know what, you still are.
You're human, not a tree and being human, being alive is something special. We’ve been pondering this for thousands of years. The ancient Greek philosophers Socrates, Plato, Aristotle all speculated the meaning and nature of human existence as countless philosophers have since. Joseph Cambell once said.
Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.
The evolution of the modern human or homo sapien, has evolved into a species so extraordinary it’s easy to take some things for granted today.
We have a brain, our imagination and creativity, awareness of death, we can stand upright and move around freely, we have a unique voice box which along with the flexibility in the mouth, tongue and lips it enables us not only to speak multiple languages but also change pitch and sing.
No matter how you look at it us humans are amazing and puzzling (slightly crazy) at the same time. We are the most advanced species intellectually, technologically and emotionally. We can even extend our lifespan.
You and I have the intelligence, compassion, love and the ability to control and alter our environment and our situation. We’ve been gifted to literally achieve what ever we put our mind and effort to. We also have the ability to responsibly care for our planet, it’s resources and all other beings we share this planet with.
So if you feel you’ve lost momentum and you've got more to offer. Maybe you’re not happy with your situation, you feel stuck or something is piercing your clarity.
You’re awesome and you my friend can take control and change it all in a moment. You're never stuck. You're not rooted to the ground. Our species has evolved so you, on this very day can move around to make those choices of change.
You’re a Homo sapien not a tree.
Dream big and take action.
