Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.

Henry David Thoreau

biology - Tuesday, May 3, 2011 @ 5:51 AM
Biology determines much of the way we live.
From the moment we were born, we know how to breathe and eat.
As we grow older, new instincts kick in.
We become territorial.
We learn to compete.
We seek shelter.
Most important of all, we reproduce.
Sometimes biology can turn on us though.
Biology sucks sometimes.

Biology says we are who we are from birth
that our DNA is sentenced to unchangeable.
Our DNA doesn't account for all of us.
We're human.
Life changes us.
We develop new traits,
become less territorial.
We learn from our mistakes.
We face our greatest fears.
For better or worse, we find ways
to become more than our biology.
The risk, of course, is that we can't change too much
to the point we don't recognise ourselves.
Finding our way back can be difficult.
There is no compass, no map.
We just have to close our eyes,
take a step,
and hope to God we'll get there.
