If I told you a story

Updated on September 19, 2012
  • If I told you a story, would you take the time to listen?
  • If I told you a secret would you keep it to yourself?
  • If I gave you my hand would you walk with me?
  • If I gave you a gift would you ask me for more?
  • If I offered you my assistance would you understand why am I offering?
  • If I told you that you were wrong would grow angry with me?

I send out a message, will you be able to decipher it, the time draws nigh. Blessed be all that embody. There are many questions that go through our minds and we wonder are we forever alone in our own thoughts and is there more to it than they eye can see?

A Time Gone By

Is the story to be made of fiction or is it to be from a time gone by that most do not recollect? What if I said I had the answer to where your destiny leads, would you label me a fool? Do you think that I ask because your answers would matter to me? I know your answers and I know what goes through your mind, I need not ask but I offer to you communication which is on your terms.

I ask you to think, think of all that you do and try to foresee the outcome of what your actions can bring about. Concentrate and think it through, sleep on it if you must before making a decision.

Heinous crimes of humankind against themselves and all other living creatures. We all feign innocence and turn the other way. How can you stand by and watch as others suffer around you? You may have all that you need at this moment in time, but who will help you if there comes a time when you may not?

The Human mind is very fragile and at times it takes great strength to hold it all together. A good man one day can turn around and slay more than one the next. We cannot be there at every moment and we cannot monitor all of humankind, but we can do what is possible.

You can keep to your world and hope that the ones who have gone astray do not find you, as days continue to pass their numbers will grow. If I tell you it does not matter will you believe in what I tell you? You can only do what is possible for you and shall you understand that you will be lifted from that grief.

The answers that you seek are within your own heart, but your ears only hear what they wish to hear. Look into your heart and remove the obstacles that stand in your way, perhaps then the answers you seek will be heard. Easy to say, hard to do? This is what they say, but they lie to you.

There is a path that is forever there, all you need do is walk down it. You may fear, but there is nothing to fear but yourself. An innocent child can walk it easily; take the hand of that child and let them lead you, they know the way.

I hope you have enjoyed this short and perhaps confusing story; to me there is a lot of meaning in it. This is not meant to be dark by any means, it is meant to lead away from the dark, not towards it. If you are a person who understands what I am talking about here please make contact and maybe together we can create an even better tale.

What does the Future Hold?

Do we look around ourselves and does it seem to you that society in general worsens as the years go by? Do you feel your dislike of the world politicians growing? Do some of us hope that there will be a big change once Dec 21, 2012 arrives? What do you think, if anything, will happen on or around the upcoming date?

      The thing I like about Sundays....well, one of the that I have the time to visit sites I have no visited in quite awhile. Your email to me steered me to this site so I could explore, and this hub is where I ended up....and what a treat!

      I love the message, or messages here. I have written on this theme, or related themes, before. As a society we have become closed off from the world, safely (or so we think) in our own protective bubble. We observe horrendous acts, but as long as they don't happen to us, it's like a fictional movie that has no bearing on our lives.....WRONG!

      I need to find a way to remain active on your site; I like your insights and the way your mind works. Thank you for a thought-provoking hub.

      Thank you Diana and Aslaught.

      I'm glad it got you thinking Diana, often times a great number of us simply forget to think.

      This was a lovely way to start my Sunday morning. Quietly contemplative, with questions that will have me forming answers for days to come. Thank you, Ms. Magdelene.

      Voted up, beautiful and awesome.
