I am nobody

The Pearl

I am nobody

Can you relate if I say that at times I feel like I’m a drop in the ocean, dust in the wind? Our system is built like a pyramid, everyone fighting for a place in the top. But how many can fit there? A few sure can, and I’m gonna make sure to be one of them. Because if I’m not reaching the top. Who am I? Nobody? Am I gonna live my whole life to end up being nobody? My whole life just a waste? What should I accomplish to earn a place at the top? And what will I do when I finally reach the top? What changes and differences will I make for the world? How many people will end up where I am now.. being nobody. A drop in the ocean. Dust in the wind. I will turn back to what I wrote a few days ago. It’s all about perspective.

How do you want your life to be? How can you make it real? What’s important for you in your life? Who is important? What do you want to learn? What do you want to give? What do you want to express? Not to be someone, but to be you. Not to aim for the top of the pyramid, but to aim for being who you are. I want to advise you on some reading of Daniel Quinn. He’s literature will open up completely new worlds for you to discover which have given me a lot of light and direction lately. So far I strongly recommend his book “The story of B” and “Beyond civilization”. These works will give you a powerful way of looking at life and I hope you get the chance to read them. Today was a day of ups and downs but I managed to turn my down around and write a song in Spanish as a counter fight. It was my second song completely in Spanish and I look forward to more Spanish writing. I also moved many steps closer to getting on with my mailing list and named it “Greetings from Erik Sjøholm”. Soon you’ll be able to discover more about that. For now, I’ll turn off the light by these words. Hasta mañana chicos.
