Why Your Quest to Find Meaning Will Turn Up Short

While measuring life with your certain set of tools, do not expect to fully understand it. You are a very small piece inside this enormous puzzle. You will always find a corner, and discover another caveat.  It is in your DNA. Understand it, bask in it, let it overtake you, let it scare you to the soul, let it take your soul, let it give your soul back, and let it own everything you love. Understand it all. Climax in it, keep it going, because it doesn’t have to end. It also doesn’t have to keep going. This is you losing your mind. Now this is you finding it and reeling it all back in.

Look at how fragile it all is and how hurtful it can all be. Look at how your actions can mean so much. Take them with calculated measure. Take them with the utmost seriousness. They are your everything. Be a master at balancing the scales. Be a master at keeping it all going.

Your quest for meaning can lead to your own destruction, or worse, the destruction of the world around you. Know the abilities which you possess, and the power with which you’re born into this life. In order to set yourself apart from the ones before, you must more effectively set up the ones who are yet to come.

You are a vessel for something bigger than yourself, and that realization comes with intense amounts of pain. It comes with intense amounts of tears, and it comes with intense amounts of joy. You are powerless in all things, whilst wielding the power of all imaginable realms combined.
