A piece of midnight’s contemplation (after watching “Water for Elephants”)

You are walking… You are walking on a path filled with success and hope. You are becoming somebody who will bring the proper contribution to this world. You are living your dream…You are living in your world full of small worries, full of unnecessary things, full of people who make you feel great or small. And after years of fighting for something you thought was right, life comes in like a bolt and takes all away from you. Yes, my friend, it is the naked truth, an unbearable truth, but in the same time it represents your blood.

Each drop of blood you spilled or you will spill comes with a change, comes with a choice. You can fight or you can reconcile with it. They used to say that all happens with a reason. Maybe you will find out a greater path, but maybe you will struggle and suffer and eat up all the crap that you can swallow. Nobody knows what the next second will bring…

Life has it. It is in her hands… You cannot take it from her. But why is she born with this gift? Why can’t we control our own lives? It’s a question that can bring many answers and many doubts.” God has a plan for all”…Really? Then why did He give us our free will. I think He has a plan, but we are the ones who change it, we choose our path, we choose if we die of sadness or if we die of stupid courageous acts, we choose if we let the world kill us or if we will fight until our last breath, and then this world will say:  ” Damn! This was a hard one, very spirited one!” . God only gives us a vision of His plan….we are the ones who accept it or not. We are the ones who control everything….God is different in the perspective of each and everyone of us.

Love…the ultimate power. You go on a stage full of different colors, a stage which is near the crowd or somewhere where you can barely see it. This stage is decorated with your thoughts, with your actions, with your feelings. Your mind and your soul creates the show (in many cases the soul is the boss, but it is not a rule) and after you are done watching your own show, you decide you should do something because even if your mind and your soul are present, you feel your body’s absent. You start touching, tasting and smelling each part of your show. That’s the moment when you make the discovery of your life, that’s the moment when you really start living. Now don’t get me wrong! Don’t take the denotative meaning of each word. Your body doesn’t have to be there , in order to actually be there. Think about it! Love, love is what allows us to see, to taste , to feel , to smell each beautiful thing this life offers us…love, hope, but hate and hopeless thoughts as well. You cannot be really happy if you haven’t experienced the real suffering. Until you haven’t lost what you loved, you won’t be able to appreciate what you have. Don’t wait for the loss…don’t make that so typically human mistake. Love in order to live!

Have you ever needed an advice, but no one was there to give it to you? Have you ever needed a hug, but no one was there to hug you?Have you ever needed anything, but in that moment you couldn’t have it? Have you ever needed love, but she turned her back at you? I can believe you, if you  say “yes” to all the questions except the last. She is like God…she will never abandon you; only if you drive her away, but she will come back whenever you call for her. You know, my dear reader, those foremost requests are very often met. Do not wait to answer “yes”  the question ” Have you ever needed life, but she didn’t come?”…
