The Fifth Element is a ridiculous movie that taught me something special. And, I feel like I never got the point of the message, until I got the point of the message. This world, here on Earth, is an amazing place, that goes un and under appreciated–far too often. And, we live with constant fear of destruction. With that fear, we preemptively create destruction in order to deal with our own fears. Kill or be killed. How can that change? Is there more to this life than the pain we always cause? There is.
Well, what if NASA in conjunction with other “authorities” on the matter, determined that the Earth was going to be hit by an asteroid, and everything on Earth will be obliterated, one year from today? What would you do today and for the remainder of that year?
I know I would love everything, try anything, and spend my time living in my passions that I’ve learned to be passionate about in my lifetime up until now, knowing they would be expanded in a very short time. This being a codependent concept on our society still functioning in a recognizable manner. But would it? And as that year passed by and there was one day left until eminent destruction, what would you do, and where would you be, and who would you be with?
But then, for some reason, the asteroid changed it’s trajectory, by mans doing, or there being a saving grace provided by God, or the energy of the universe shifting, that allowed us to all live on.
Is there any way that you would be able to return to living how you lived one year earlier?
When you are changed, it’ll be forever. With that knowledge, you can just make that decision now. Live and love your life like there’s only a year or a day left, and I guarantee you will not go back to the fucked up ways of yesterday. I promise our society would be improved as well. All things we do now would be impossible to do the next day.
