Every thing we do we are being conditioned on how we feel and how to act. We look to our leaders for guidance but in this day and age even our leaders are those that we shouldn’t be taking any guidance from. Or should we?
We have let murder and intolerance take over our streets. We are so far behind in our thinking that I am pretty sure that the World will stop and go in the other direction.
We can withstand losing body parts, limbs, eyes etc but it is the physical pain that endures that we can’t live with. Pain drives as crazy. It takes our ability away from having any sort of free thought. Physical pain will make you lash out at anybody for whatever reason but it still doesn’t make you feel any better. In fact it makes you feel worse. The embarassment of not being able to control your emotions takes over like wildfire
The way we treat each other. I have experienced more bullying and more insults in my adult years then in any other time combined. This is what my child sees. This is what he is absorbing. The malicious intent of a few. Negativity breeds like wildfire and it infects our inner core.
My true frustration comes when all I am looking for is basic human compassion. With so much passing of time we almost have to rekindle, or try and rekindle what is lost. In the changing World where everybody so quickly just gives up and moves on I am hesitant to do so.
There are things you can do to make you feel more at peace. In some ways we were born to live alone. Society though prefers us to be tied to each other. It erases the desire to be Nomads from travelling from town to town.
The beautiful tranquility of the simplicity of life gets distorted with all the negative emotions that surround everything we do. From the time our alarm goes off we are constantly being bombarded with problems. Frustration is at the tip of every word we speak as we swear at the Universe for the anguish that fills…
That is why I do the things I do the way I do. I know the most precious gift I have is when I passed on the gift of life to my son. I finally understand what my mom meant by her saying that all she wanted from us was to live better lives than her. I never truly understood what that meant. Now I know. She wanted to make sure we had the opportunities that she didn’t.
What seems to be hot on everybody’s list is this blind ignorance into nothingness. The ignoring of other peoples emotions, fears and shortcomings. We weren’t put on this Earth to fight over such trivial matters of World domination or control. It’s trivial because what does that all get you? You can be at the peak of your life and it can all turn on a dime. A bullet or an accident can take your place to ensure that there is nothing left of you to offer in the future.
Learning to love a stranger in times when it is needed most is something we should all strive for. There is beauty in our individual lives, there is an art when we blend our lives together, we could last until eternity if we could all sing in harmony together.
