The cold wind hits my face like needles, as i walk the cliché lane of looking around, with my once-free heart and mind, free of the pain of the wicked, free of sadness and of tears. Now, as i walk, tears rise up – never misses lately- every time my eyes look upon a human being, the ones who think they own the world, with one too many attachment to be able to move ahead, even one inch ahead seems impossible, from where they are expecting themselves to be. In reality, they’re pulling off one big illusion, and this illusion is losing credibility.
One way or the other, it’s impossible that, along the way, we have lost our humanity. Even when everything around points to such a radical conclusion, it cannot be. We could have switched off our humanity, very possible too that we switched it off for far too long, to a point where we came to be on ‘auto-pilot’. It looks as if we have made it our purpose to destroy each other… Mistaking this mode for who we are, we tend to forget that we are about all this, this all that it’s about, this life, this timeline, those decades we live, those memories we make, the laughter that echoes then fades away, the tears that always flow, to die, and most importantly to pass it on, generation after another, in love, beauty, and respect of nature, of animals. Those things cited above are of great importance in our physical, emotional, and mental progress. Now that we’ve consumed the heritage our ancestors entrusted us with, we are left with only this pain of existence, this limited sight of purpose, the lack of belonging, of commitment, of word and spirit. Is this what we’re passing on the next generations? Do you ever stop to wonder when and how did we reach such a far-fetched stage of cruelty and inhumanity, toward each other first, then toward all living creatures? Nothing to make those good people who made history proud. Do we really simply don’t care anymore? Or worse, are we really incapable of an unconditioned feeling, emotion, action, or reaction anymore? That makes a lot of generations, and of conditioning.
As humans, we know we’re dying. We also know that there’s nothing that we can do about it. We have in every way violated our lifespan, and throughout history, through time & space, we sadly have reached our culminating point of decadence, and don’t think I don’t appreciate the irony. Is it Man’s way of getting even with Death, by projecting some death in and around him? We sadly managed to infect all life around us. What’s a good excuse to have brought about the dying breath of a planet, of entire ancient mystique forests, of the deep magical waters, and the air? If our death should mean the death of everything around us, then I (not so) secretly wish we’d never be born again, or then be born in other shapes, crawling, or on all fours, and to earn our humanity, all the way again, into a two-legged conscious living being. There will never be a chance of community spirit, of tribe bond, if we don’t change our mindset, and psyche. This will only happen when we decide and commit to look for and find other ways than war, famine, and inflicting misery upon our likes.
We’ve had centuries of ignorance, during which maleficent influence and manipulation built up. We’ve seen how far some minds are willing to go for man-made truth. Now my question is, how far are the disciplined & conscious minds willing to go for their own truth? Mere thoughts, on yet again, the Balance of the Universe, the All.
In the light of the most advanced and dangerous century, I believe it is time to redefine if we must, then to understand what ‘human’ means. It is time that we fully embodied our humanity. That is before entering the tricky realm of spirituality.
