My city trip to Singapore has been interesting to say the least. I had to get out of Indonesia because I had to renew my visa and I choose to go to Singapore. I am always excited to explore new cities because I love to learn about other people and different cultures. It is a beautiful experience and I am really grateful for it. I usually feel my peace of mind everywhere I go but these two days in Singapore have been a little bit weird for me. I felt lost and alienated in Singapore, the big city. Empty.
Alienated in Singapore
Never been in such an organised place as Singapore. A corporate city/jungle where everything is organized around money. You go to work, hustle to survive to get money.. And in the mean time.. You consume..consume.. Consume.. Because your money needs to roll. I feel no peace of mind at all in this kind of society. I feel alienated in Singapore.
You go from A to B in the metro and you play these games on your phone to kill time. It is like we are living zombies, not fully alive. I’m not criticizing people. I’m criticizing this kind of society we live in because I don’t see any humanity anymore.
We are living zombies killing time..waiting till our death beds.. And then we realize.. That with money we cannot buy time. We give our precious time away. Day by day. And I am not having it! I want my life to be meaningful. Do things I believe in. Not because I have to conform to society and give MY time away. Routines are dangerous.
I feel my anger rising. It makes me sad thinking about all the people on this planet going to a shitty job, going home to their tiny apartment where they pay a shitload of money for. And buy things they don’t need to fill their emptiness. There are so many injustice in this world and Modern slavery is one of them. Capitalism. Consume, consume, consume. You are more than your productivity! Love is what matters most. And I would rather spend a fortune on experiences then things I don’t really need. Never settle for less than what you believe in.. Think about what makes you alive and go do it. Because we need you all. Here is the dreamer again.. And I am not having it. You are paying your life with your time and energy. Think about that. ❤️
