The Distant View Is Just A Dream

We can easily invest our belief in a future state: we look through the telescope at green fields and soaring mountains. The water in the river looks sweet, and the forest is verdant. But it’s a dream, a myth. A future state we may all want, but we live in the world today.

Promised future states may be monumental and bold, but perhaps the easiest way we can live in paradise is to build it out of the conflict and petty rivalry that we live within today. We can build it through kindness, with humility. We can do it one conversation at a time, and by giving more away than we seek to gain.

Perhaps our paradise will not be perfect, but who wants to live in a perfect world? There is nothing that we cannot change, if we are willing to take the smallest of steps to do so.
