A Green Spin

What the world needs is people who have come alive.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

The world doesn’t need you trying to reach a goal you really don’t care about, just because you feel people will view you highly and be impressed by you, or because you feel you should view their expectations. Everyone is judging you, and you can’t ever get past that. That doesn’t mean everyone actually cares.

The world doesn’t need you trying to conform into the ocean of society, another drop in the ebb and tide. It needs the colourful fish, the leaping dolphins, the shrimps and the sharks and the great whales. The world doesn’t need you to get a credit card and buy a fancy house and own the latest trends in fashion.  You think the world needs that, but you’re wrong.

The world doesn’t need you pretending to be alive. It doesn’t need you to be pretentious and believe you’re better than others. What it needs is you to focus, to do what you really believe in, and commit yourself. Focus and committal are probably the hardest things, because deep down, you actually know who you are and you know what you really want to do.

The world doesn’t need labels. It doesn’t need the people who are the best. It doesn’t need people who are selfless or selfish, good or bad, honorable or evil. Because everyone has a flaw in their selflessness, and everyone has a flaw in their badness. There is no black and white, no best and worst. Don’t let labels tether you. Let go.
