Like water that flows into the ocean
Photo taken by me
Yesterday afternoon when I was sitting at the back of the house, I saw the flowing river water. At one point, the water flows so fast, and at another point, the water flows so calmly. I imagine the journey of the water that comes from mountain springs, and flows to the land, to the sea. How long is the journey of water flowing in the river?
From the flowing river, I asked in my mind. Is human life the same as water flowing into the ocean? Of course yes. Humans have a life that intersects with many dimensions. The dimensions I mean are the dimensions of happiness, economics, social, spiritual, and other dimensions. We want all the dimensions that we live in this life to run well without any flaws, but that's not what happened. We never know the path of life that we run. The life we live today is unpredictable where it will lead.
The only thing we can find in the journey of life is the result of what we have done. Therefore, the life we run should be done with good and positive things so that the results we make in life are also good and positive. Usually, the problems we face in this life originate from a series of tasks such as promises and obligations. When we don't do these promises and obligations, it will give birth to a problem (both big and small problems). If we do it, it doesn't mean that problems won't be created. However, at least we have tried to do our best. I call this courage.
Courage for me is when someone is willing to face the problems in his life. People who run away from responsibility are cowards because they do not dare to face the scheme of their life journey. Even though life's problems are so painful, surely all the pain will disappear and be replaced with a smile. The scheme of a person's life journey is like the river that flows behind my house. When the water comes out of the mountain springs, it is so clear and cool that it flows through the rocks in the way. However, the water still flows. When the water has gone to the cities, it encounters various problems such as indiscriminate disposal of garbage to industrial waste pollution. But the water still flows even though it is no longer clear and clean.
When the water has flowed to the seas and oceans, the water will understand that its journey to flow from the mountains to the sea is not easy. Must be able to struggle to face many obstacles to be one with the ocean. The life lived by humans is also like water flowing from the mountains to the ocean. The ideal life we want is not easy to get. We have to struggle and face various obstacles and problems in life to be able to get an ideal life.
Many of us do not want to accept difficult situations in dealing with life's problems and scapegoating other problems. We don't have to be like that friend. We should be able to learn from the water that flows from the mountains to the ocean. As humans, we are bound to experience difficulties, sorrows, happiness, and pleasures. It will come and go. That is the scheme of human life. Even though there are difficulties and sorrows that we must face, we must continue to walk with the fighting spirit that we have. We must have the courage to face various problems and solve them in a good way. Like water that has been polluted by garbage and sewage, water still flows into the ocean boldly. Are we as humans able to dare to face all the problems in life? You have to be brave!

That's a lot of trash everywhere. Do people just not care where you are and just throw plastics, bags, food and, it looks like, diapers right onto the ground, right into the river where you swim and get food?
Yes, I live in a broken country. society and government do not care about the state of the natural surroundings. it is located where I rent the house. I come from Central Java. but now i live in Medan city
very sad to see the situation. but that's the truth. I once bought several trash cans so that people could throw their trash in its place. but unfortunately, 3 days later the trash can was stolen by someone.
That is so fucked up.
I live in a house that is on the street so everyone walks through my "yard".
It's ONLY ghetto white and black and hispanic people who throw trash onto the ground.
I want to fight every single one of them. I've considered ways to fight back against these people. Talking to them about their behavior doesn't do anything.
It is very difficult to make people aware of the importance of protecting the environment. I can't fight them because almost all of them litter. even some hotels, hospitals, and malls throw garbage into the river.
There are ways to fight back, I'm sure.
Us living in heartache and physical agony seeing our world trashed by those around us is
Why can't we use cancel culture to our advantage, for example?
It's not illegal here to take pictures of people or to film them, so why not take pictures and film them and start a campaign online to shame people, anonymously OFC :P
I've decided that I've had enough of people walking all over me and the things I love and care about in this world. I'm personally fed up. I've been attacked, beaten, have to live in trash and fear all my life since I was probably 15. Enough is enough.
If good people don't do anything, then who will?
that's a great idea bro. why i never thought like that before haha
You probably are a better, more sane and more functioning person than I am, man.
I am wound so tight and obsess about these things because it's all I have.
Also, all this stuff takes efforts and at the end of the day, most people don't like confrontation - it's stressful and takes so much time and energy compared to just suffering in silence, which is stressful, but it doesn't come with as much immediate risk I guess.
I'm tired of suffering in silence though. How much better would the world be if all the good and decent humans in the world just stood up to the assholes around them and refused to allow bad behavior to continue?
I often protest to the government which is not firm in dealing with the environment. I see the government only cares about themselves and the affairs of their political parties.
