I have seen a lot of people in this life spends countless hours and days searching for relevance. And the point of this all is? So many people make a half hearted attempt at proving their relavence in this life and that they have a place in the world. Well quite frankly if you had no place in the world you wouldn't be a part of it in the first place no would you? Like most things in the existence, I take a different approach from the norm and look at the situation in another light.
I set out to prove irrelevance in an attempt to explain that everyone else's search is pointless. Some things in life you can never truly prove nor disprove, they call it faith. You have no concrete evidence before you yet you believe that there is something of substance there before you. Therefore I decided a long time ago that I would not search for my place in this world, after all, my place found me the moment I stopped looking for it. Then I focused on the simple thought of irrelevance in an effort to prove that there is no such thing.
A single grain of sand on and endless beach must look and feel as insignificant and a rain drop in the ocean. In the minds of most I am sure it's value is little more than just that, a raindrop in the ocean, hardly enough to make a measurable difference at the end of the day. However, no whole is greater than the sum of all it's parts, and that one minute grain of sand is a part of that endless beach. Though it's removal shows no depreciation to the naked eye, in one way or another the beach is made smaller by it's absence.
I have never understood any obsession with relevance, take the most successful person you know and consider that life will move on without them. Certainly a ripple affect will take place by their retreat, but the waves of the ocean will continue to roll. The same can be said of the least successful person we all know, but we all have our parts of this planet. You may not notice everything that pops in and out of the picture, but it is all relevant at some point or another simply through it's presence. It alters the landscape and becomes a part of the bigger picture no matter how inconceivable it sounds.
So when you are barreling through this life in search of who you are and why you are here, remember your role has already been cast. The fact that you have the breath and presence of mind to wonder about these riddles and any other for that matter, are proof in itself. You need no half asses philosopher to explain this to you, you only need to take the time to believe in yourself. So what if I am only a grain of sand, so are all the other little grains, but together we make a huge impression on the world around us.
