A citizen of the world

accomplishment action adult adventure

You owe it to the universe

The universe owes you nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada. That you exist, that you are reading this right now, is nothing short of a miracle.

Now that you recognise that, it’s your imperative to act upon it. It’s your imperative to give back to the world to the best of your ability.

As a citizen of the world, it’s your imperative to seek out the best ways in which you can contribute to the world at large.

At times, this means knowingly going out of your comfort zone. It means boldly moving forward with crazy ideas, no matter how insane they may sound. Those crazy ideas are born of you and you are born of the universe, after all.

It’s only natural that you should see to it that the ideas that manifest within you are given their best attempt to thrive in this world that has given you your world. That is your role as a citizen of the world.
