With every breath I feel life, every drink of pure water and savory bite of nourishment testifies of the reality of my existence, the experiences of being a living being, bound to that which sustains me. I need no other witness of my existence. The feelings which burn inside my heart for those who have shared my life are alive as well. All are a part of me. I stand for these truths. I search for these truths. Nothing else has the power to prevail in the end. I am complete as I am.
It is by our efforts, no matter how weak, that the world is built. It is by our dreams that it is made, there is no other reason. As I have breath, I will not fail to dream. We all wake up to the reality of our dreams. My reality is built on the dreams of those that have sacrificed their time, talent and lives so that I can build my dream; one that comes more clear after every sacrifice has been made. I stand on the dreams of others.
Take heart, no sacrifice will be too much in the end if the dream is big enough. I share in a dream that is worth the sacrifice. In my dream, we have obtained a state where the truths and knowledge we have gained are employed for the benefit of all we love, where truth (in whatever form) is sought and readily found. The greatest obstacle to this reality are in the mistaken thought that such knowledge and resources must be horded and leveraged for only individual benefit to obtain position and dominion, foolish and vain pride. Such systems by their very nature tend to sap more energy and resources from society (to only benefit a few) than they offer society as a whole and therefore must destroy themselves over time and cannot endure. This is based on physical law. How long will it take before we realize this?
