We don't need another hero. . .

And I wonder when are we ever gonna change?

When you want things to change in your life, it's always easy to blame the circumstances that allow you to be stuck doing things you don't want to do, being around people you don't to be around, being in a place that you don't want to be in.  The quickest solution to solving this problem is to think about yourself - your thoughts and how these translate into actions.  How will you know to create opportunities out of the choices that are offered to you?

Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistakes this time
We are the children, the last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when are we ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

What same mistakes do you keep making?  I think we make the same mistakes because we don't pay attention to what's really important.  We may also make the same mistakes because we are too stubborn and don't pay attention to making adjustments based on results that we might have at hand.  How can we be sure that our generation will be able to rise out of the wreckage, take some responsibility and ensure that we do what we need to, not to be right, but to benefit everyone.

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

If you go through so many difficulties, do you rely on a hero to save you?
Will we find ourselves on the way home soon enough?  Will we recognise our homes if we have been away from them for so long?  I guess once we've started to live our true purpose in life, only then will we know what life is beyond what we can see.  Only then would we find the way home, we would be drawn to it without question, without resistance.



Looking for something we can rely on
There's got to be something better out there
Mmmm, love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when are we ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

I've been having some great conversations with people in recent weeks and what's funny is that the songs I choose to blog about seem to find themselves fitting those conversations.  I started this blog post a few weeks back but as you know, life happens and you prioritise what needs to get done and then pause the blog post until you've addressed those issues that need your attention, address those things that only you can fix.  I feel that when people are wanting to know absolutes in a world that is never really static anymore, we can get ourselves worked up into unnecessary states of panic.  I know that we will all change at some point in our lives, is it worth knowing when?  You will change when you realise it is time to change - not any sooner, and not any later - at the right time that is right for you to do so.  The best thing about that is, you won't even need to do anything too strenuous.  It will be an effortless transition, a process that in hindsight you will think wow, that was easier than I thought it would be.  There will be no fear left, nothing else will be there. Except you.

All the children say
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

Who is the hero in your life?
We look too far beyond ourselves when really, our own salvation lies within.
I think we know all the answers that we seek, because we've been learning and growing in those lessons since we were born, but the power of free will, means that often we shall mistakes that either take us away from our path, widens the gaps between us and where we are meant to be and we forget what we were born to do.  So what do you need to do?  Trust yourself to make decisions that will benefit your life - and then take that life and do better for others.  Isn't this the kind of life we seek beyond our own personal Thunderdomes?

All the children say
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

I hope that you find your inner hero.
If you know where home is for you, even if you are standing at a crossroads like me, moving to a new place like my other friends, or stuck in a rut over a decision that is beyond your control - just remember that you can the be hero of your own life.  You can take action and figure out your own issues, solve your own problems and be self sufficient.  You know where home is should you need to call in from time to time, but know that you are meant to go on our journeys and voyages that are to test what you have learned, to see whether you can retain the skills absorbed from diamond-pressure situations that you never saw yourself.  But all of that comes down to you.  It comes down to me.  And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?. . .
