"1 First God made heaven & earth 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light." Genesis, The Old Testament
All human beings, rich or poor, black or white, (American or Non-American) are born with a purpose in life, so I believe. Now what that purpose is most people (and by that I mean almost 90% of the lot) never actually find out what that purpose is. I wont delve in the cliched thought that all human beings are born to be great individuals...for heavens sake if everybody was born great then i dont think "great" would even be a word, who would we compare? Of all the billions of people just think that if a few million had the charisma of Abraham Lincoln, another few million the mind of Einstein...the mere thought of it makes feel feel that God really does a great job of deciding our lives for us. But the fault is ours when we ignore the facts and the signs and carve out a live for ourselves that we were never meant to live. On the other hand, those few who do find their purpose turn out to be great human beings. By this I really dont mean they all become leaders the pioneers, they all atleast become good human beings.

For all things living the beginning is very painful. Genesis takes time to settle in. This is applicable in all walks of life, right from the time when we are born right to the time when we are ready to meet the Reaper. The beginning of school life, the beginning of college, work, etc, etc, etc. The beginning of something new actually means saying goodbye to something or the other and hence the pain. But then why do we do it? It's simply because we human beings are always looking for something new, something interesting, something unknown, something that we want. And with every new thing these thought of finding what we are looking for actually come to our minds and hence the effort. We are always looking forward for the best...a better life and a better future.
But once the Genesis is over we settle down into our new environment. Some have problems while others make if appear as if they were tailor-made to that thing. In school these people are the cool kids, the ones every other boy or girl wishes to be or even to be with. As for me, since this entire blog is about my life, Genesis was always a pain in the ass. It was not because I had problems mixing in but the thing was that I had great problems just letting go. A change of school can be the worst thing for any person especially when you are leaving behind the only people in the entire world you have shared your life with for the past 10 years. But the only thing that made me go along with the entire process was the prospects of making more friends! I can clearly say that my life as an individual began after that change, I as a person started to metamorphose into what I am today.
So from this day forth I am going to become utterly selfish and write about life through my eyes. I can assure you all that i have seen my fair share of it and something inside my just begs me to share it all with you....whoever you may be. And as the saying goes a person is no longer a stranger when he or she lends an ear to the gibberish of a mad-man....that someone becomes a friend.
