Here I am. Alone.
Sitting on the ground. Leaning back against a rock in the middle of a crater.
Surrounded by trees. Massive trees. Green and reddish. Painted in such perfection.
The gentle wind blowing in my ear. Brushing my bare skin. Asking me to dance in the wind.
I closed my eyes and smiled. Staring to the perfect scenery in my mind.
My ear listened to the song of nature.
The sound of the singing birds.
The sound of boiling water.
The sound of people chattering and laughing.
I opened my eyes and looked up to the sky. It's blue. Covered with clouds. Vast and incredibly white.
I could picture myself from way up there.
So small. Insignificant.
Like a dust in the middle of Sahara.
Like a rain drop in the middle of the storm.
Like an atom in the giant universe.
Who am I?
Am I the person I supposed to be?
Am I on the right path in becoming whom I destined to be?
Will I be able to achieve my personal legend?
Will I be significant? Not for the sake of me, but for the sake of the others.
Will I be the hands of God? Like each one of us is meant to be.
Again I closed my eyes. Treasuring the moment.
The awaiting future.
I took a deep breath.
Breathed in and breathed out.
The crisp air freshened my lungs.
Suddenly, Heaven is here.
Here on Earth.
Exists in the massive trees.
In the blowing wind.
In the sound of the singing birds.
In the sound of boiling water.
In the sound of chatter and laughter.
In the vast clouds.
In the shining sun.
And in me.
I know who I am.
I am me.
Choosing to become what I am destined to be.
Choosing to fulfill my personal legend.
Choosing to be significant. Not for the sake of me, but for the sake of the greater good.
Choosing to be awaken. Not yet, but I will be.
Choosing to wake each other up.
Choosing to lead my way in this crossroad I am facing now.
Not because I am sure which way to go, but because I know that the answer will not be found unless I tried.
And who are you?
Are you already awake?
Are you still sleepwalking your life?
Who are you?
