Abstract

Belief, faith, and truth; how do we find it? We don't find it, we make it. People expect something to come to them, lead them, show them. Universal truth is a false concept. Truth is what you choose to believe. Memories, dreams, passions, and imagination paint us in the reality we choose to live in. Is this absurd? Of course, it is. Life is absurd. Life is fictional. Every story is made up, even the real ones. People are living and dying simultaneously. Stories are being written and erased all at once. Birthdays are symbolic of life and a reminder of death. Old personalities must die to make room for the new. Death of the sensical is the greatest release. If all you ever do is hear you will never listen. If all you ever do is look you will see nothing. If all you ever do is wait nothing will happen.
