If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years.

i was talking with Stephanie last night about the end of the world and what that necessarily means. the world, evolution, and how humanity relates or is effecting it.

its like the big hype these days to think that the end of the world is going to come in our lifetime. bc we are "killing our planet". but why do we think that we have this power to kill the earth? why do we think we are so special that we are gonna witness this defeat?

we were talking about how if the world was around millions of years before us -why would it all of a sudden just be gone so instantly? humanity as we know it is a blink of an eye in the time this earth has seen and i doubt it will ever come to an end- but maybe we are turning the earth into an environment that we can no longer evolve or adapt to fast enough to survive it. she brought up that maybe we are like a disease that the earth is gonna fight off. it will send out its white blood cells and kill us in order for itself to survive.

maybe the end of the world is not a literal thing but is actually the end of our survival as people upon it. bc we tend to think the world revolves around our existence anyways. if we are gonna be around during the grand finale then hell yea but i doubt it. i mean maybe we are one of millions of waves of people that have reigned our planet. and just as societies have fallen, the earth has fought 'us' off before. life fights to exist and the earth puts up w it long enough to fight it off again and again.

this makes me think about what our purpose really is. Stephanie mentioned that maybe 'the end of the world' theories were created so that ppl will actually wake up and live life w passion, w desire to dream big, have goals and see them come to fruition.

live. don't waste your time on petty things.

love each other to the fullest, and live "YOUR LIFE",
don't let anyone put you down or make you feel bad about yourself.
Love always,

What was happening was happening to us both. I believe it is always so, mutual and, at least at first, equally intense, if it is genuine involveness. The actual thing- involveness- requires something like a spark leaping back and forth from one to the other becoming more intense every moment, love building up like voltage in a coil. Here there is no sound of one hand clapping. Unreciprocated love is something else, not geniune involveness, I think: perhaps it is infatuation or a mixture of affection and sexual attraction for being in love. But when the "real thing" happens, there is no doubt. A man in the jungle at night, as someone said, may suppose a hyena's growl to be a lion's; but when he hears the lion's growl, he knows damn well it's a lion. So with the geniune involveness. A sudden glory.

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you
Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time
And hung me on a line
Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you
