Hope Starts At Home

The dream

The need

The wanting, the greed

The yearning

The hunger

The hope…

None of it is out there 

All of it is within.

The change for the better doesn’t come from what one has, or even what one does, but how one is.

One person may be surrounded by all the luxuries they ever dreamed of, another may be the sole person in a vast wilderness, and a third may be in the centre of a crowded room… looking out into their own worlds, but within, each have:

The hope…

The hunger, the yearning, the wanting, the greed, the need and the dream.

Everything starts at home.

    It’s all about our own attitude, isn’t it? What’s inside counts for all. Well put, Tom 🙂

    We are electricity driving a meat puppet, unable to contact reality directly, but through the biological interface that let’s us experience reality at second hand. 🙂 ❤

    We are at the centre of our prison. 🙂 ❤

      We are, Prenin… and in our minds: our freedom!
