Focusing on the ground is what first led man to his downfall.
The more time spent on the worthless, the more our concept of value is deluded.
Sparked by obsession evolved an addiction. Where once we stood a line with the rest of the universe, we now spiral. Surrendering control, caused a disconnection between us, and all life around us.
Addiction is a plague, a vicious cycle of hunger and satisfaction. It knows nothing of reason or mercy in the pursuit of a fix.
After so long, man has adapted to imbalance and grown accustomed to the illusion of progress. Forgetting the fall let alone how to stand.
We continuously build bigger and grander platforms to display our incompetence, unknowingly pushing any hope of redemption farther and farther away. We have become slaves to our thoughts, seeking self-worth and admiration from peers who are by no means qualified to rank.
Never satisfied, always reaching for that which we do not possess. Harmful to all in our path, we grow weaker as we give away our precious energy to the development of our poison. We see only through dead or excited eyes.
Products of motion, evolving is in our nature. But it is not a certainty, to grow one must give time and return value. Aline our spine with the Earth, instead of our car seats.
Acknowledge our fall and manifest an intention to stand. Watch as those who continue on the impossible quest for peace fade away from your reality. Send them a silent prayer and bask in a new bliss, in perpetual happiness.
