How God or infinite power created human life form is unquestionable to certain people, and that includes me. Often we speak of the lies around us, we often put it in our shoutbox and every single day we try to live with them. The She Dragon reminds me always how to live with these bulls and shits and to accept them as a part of our daily screwed lives. Anyway, this blog doesn’t particularly point to life’s spoiled plans, though subliminally it targets our failures.
I have made a lot of mistakes in my chosen path and I’m not afraid to admit my wrongs. Admitting my wrongs makes me taste my rights even sweeter than any candy on Earth, and that empowers me. I’m not the type of person who gets embarrassed on my mistakes in life, I learn to admit them and make a humorous story out of it. And that is what most people lack. They are ashamed of their wrongs and put their overly fried pride on the top of their heads. Can’t blame them, those are their life choices.
There’s this one 3D animation called The Incredibles that I really love to watch over and over. Basically, it’s about a bunch of superheroes that has amazing abilities but was forced to hide it due to people not accepting their abnormalities; which lead us to another fantastic human trait of “not accepting what they can’t understand”. But then again, can’t blame them, those are their life choices.
Speaking with the She Dragon, the infinite possibility is within human mind. You just have to figure out how to release the “locked-up-mode” of your brain. And to some people, it is impossible. I’m not dropping names but most of these people are priests, nuns and moralists. LOL! But on how to accept the reality of even how gifted you are, you must remain in the shadows OR the normal people will burn you until you die is – the bitter consequence of being special. Jose Rizal was shot to death for not being a conformist, Alexander the Great was poisoned probably because he was gay, (pulling your leg) Achilles was killed because he laughed at the gods, (though Achilles was a myth, he’s still killed by the writer because he bows to no god) and Hitler committed suicide (not until proven) because he was incredible. These type of people who rise among the normal are usually put to death, one way or the other.
Why can’t most people accept the fact that the existence of the gifted lives among them? Why do they have to persecute these people who has moderate to huge difference to the normal state of human mind? I for one humbly bow to the illuminati, and I accept their existence. I too believe the devils as much as I believe the angels, and God and Satan. All these are inseparable as day and night, darkness and light. How some people let their lives be controlled by just one element is also beyond my understanding. You know the saying: “be the goodest of the good, or the baddest of the bad”? back in college, our professor thought us of “picking a side”. He insists that if you don’t pick a side, you’ll get smashed right in the middle. Being on neutral was never an option – is that why the quality of education in my college was deteriorating rapidly? Alright, I’m not to blame my professors for what a bum I’ve become, again – how they teach is their life choices, and me as a student must keep in mind that we have our own opinions and option in life.
I had my basic education in a catholic school that was open enough on accepting my mother’s religious POV and I applaud that school for being open to other’s religious beliefs even if every brick that was laid on their ground was blessed with the catholic’s holy water. They too have accepted the fact that I am who I am, and how lucky I was that they didn’t put a stake to my heart and left me bleed to death.
I was lucky to survive college too without getting in to bigger trouble than failing algebra and math 2 times in a row. Though I have excellent grade in humanities, I never realized how human I was until I decided to be in a relationship. Oh, how I long to be formally introduced by someone, how I wished to be the glory of a certain person, how I fantasized of being accepted – are my biggest obstacle on how I want my life to become.
People like me are blessed with an outstanding understanding on how the world turns, and it always turn clockwise to the normal people. Keep in mind that not everyone has infinite knowledge on how life circumstances can spit in our faces and laugh about it. I believe in karma, good and bad. And for me, those people who can’t accept the reality of that their world wouldn’t turn because of our help, there’s nothing in their future but sadness and failure, no matter how hard they try. Still, I can’t blame their life choices.
These people who are broken know how to accept the pain of living in the shadows. And these people also know the pain of living in total exposure. I am invisible most of the time, and accompanying that invisibility makes me invincible. I can’t blame myself if I would lose my humanity in the near future or lose my ability to love. That’s my life choice, don’t blame me. Either that, or I’d just become a person whom you’d never understand – the Incredible.
