Life is a gamble, we all wish to hit the cosmic jackpot and enjoy winning, we are always in quest of new ways and creative schemes to validate our existence and take it to a higher rank …
The mere plain presence is never enough, we revolt and refuse the idea to just subsist on the margins of reality, and thus we are roaming and wandering off to what is beyond our physical world, we are always summoned by the unseen, we want to interpret and translate our attendance on this earth.
At a certain point we start to question our beliefs, perceptions and our visions about life and death, about the definition of what is right and what is wrong but through it all we are always in quest of something that we lack, that missing piece to complete the puzzle of our lives, to decode the enigmas and invade the mysteries of the universe in an attempt to reveal the secrets and reign over the ambiguity and the distortion of our sight as well as insight.
Each one of us is seeking a different flavor , a singular mark that can add the meaning and the depth to the status quo , we usually search for what we lack, what we do not have is always the subject of attraction and desire to us, for those who are short on imagination they look for the dream, the magic , the fantasy in the womb of reality; as for those who not have love , they spend their lives chasing after it, and those who lack the flair of beauty are always on the run to find it wherever it may be found.
Those who do not possess material wealth are in pursuit of fortunes and riches that can give them the satisfaction they need. For those who are sick, they ask for health and well being. For the oppressed minds they fight for the freedom and liberty , for the anguish souls they wander off searching for healing powers may that be in artistic gateways, or inquiring the spiritual jewels of peace of mind and serenity.
We are all hunters in this world, always on alert, always inspecting and scanning the fields of our existence, investigating and exploring our territories and beyond them as well, we all want the good catch, whether we have to bulldoze, push, prod, manipulate or insist to get it.
Never stop your chase no matter how rough the road that you follow to get what you want might be, always go one step further to reach your destination, and if you get exhausted take the time to smell the rose and enjoy the views around you while you rest, but always get up again and get moving even if you have to smudge your face in the mud , because once you arrive to your own elixir of life you will be able to look up with your face towards the sky and feel the triumph of yourself against the stumble blocks on your path ….
