Short are the days of joy, long are the days of remembering such moments and reminiscing what we may have lost along the way. I don’t believe in losing, I believe in things taking place of other things. You’re like a box with a limited space for things, feelings, emotions and people, and this is where “You have to lose something in order to gain something”, where the endless efforts of detachments and letting go acts as a constant reminder of the impermanence of things. Always reminding us to let go and make space for the new to come, and in so many ways does the loss come to us unprepared, and it’s instantaneously replaced by new alien things that we are usually unfamiliar with, and this is where the challenge comes. Realizing and accepting the new things that have come to our lives, and try to reframe, ponder these things to unleash the value within.
“If there is a promised land, it is where the heart is, and whether we know it or not, we are all on this same homeward journey”
It’s unfortunate that the majority of the herd are caught up in realizing and valuing things that of quantifiable, and undisputed global agreement. More often than not they are things of materialistic nature “money, car, house, salary” what comes next to most are relationships – which to me takes a higher importance than others. At the tail of list comes the fluffy and almost taken with a grit of skepticism like: health, sanity, wisdom, stoic, preservance, kindness, empathy, smiling, and your marvelous sophisticated being that is able to treat, repair, warn and keep your physical container in the best way possible in relation to it’s possessor “You” input.
“Our present lives are dominated by the goddess Reason, who is our greatest and most tragic illusion” C.G. Jung
As always, we are caught in the realm of words. We are fanatics in chopping our lives to bits and pieces to label them and file them away without really experiencing anything new to enough depths to get the nectar of the the experience. We merely break the external shell and say to ourselves “Oh, that again.. I know where it may lead me and I don’t like it”. And this is how we mostly end-up our premature experiences that has just arrived to teach us. Life is so great that it never give up on dragging your attention once again to the same exact experience that you’ve just skipped untill you really get it. And this is something that life is really good at, if there’s anything to learn from nature is preservance, and the laser focus and the never give up attitude it resembles in life experiences, all with a magnifcient serenity that on the surface you feel that nothing is changing, yet in long time; a lot is accomplished. In brevity “Nature doesn’t haste anything, yet it accomplishes everything”
Recently I’ve got to read about the limits of Empathy to humans, and earlier I’ve read about the limits of decisions that humans have. It striked me at first that we may have such limits, but then again Empathy and Decisions are feelings that need energy to fly and get a momentum. Yet after pondering upon the fact that our abstract form is a being of light that vibrates at different frequencies that are so fast that it give us the illusion of density of our bodies. So are our thoughts that creates our feelings that gets manifested into energy that people get to see/feel it through your aura and your non-verbal communication (55% non-verbal, 38% tone 7% words) and this is when we say it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it, we often mean the first 93% of the communication that differentiates genuinity and integrity of a person from another.
The lack of empathy that humans now have might be then attributed not to it’s non-existence but rather it’s inefficient depletion in unncesssary remote events that has nothing to do with our lives. I’d attribute it more to the surge in social media usage that has allowed people to share the stories of their mostly unpleasent experiences, such stories are seen by many who unconsciously empathize with such stories, that before they even now their daily limit of empathy is depleted. Leaving them to the outside world like a dead-corpse that physically occupies space in the universe, yet without any siginificant contribution to the outside world.
“Too many of us, I fear, suck the pointing finger of religion for comfort, instead of looking where it points” Alan Watts
It’s no wonder that we have intentionally created machines, and inventions that reflects our human cognitive sense. Computers now can see, hear and touch, when taste and smell are here with AI then we are most likely to have created the most human-like machine. I am mostly cringed by such news, knowing that side of evil has been taking the lead for quite sometime now. Humans on the way have unkowibly created Social Media and with it came the digital empathy, the digital social circle and digital life, the TV which was the earlier digital manifestation of life. As always we are confusing words for meanings behind, the territory with the map, the food for the menu.
The prime difference between between digital empathy and real empathy is that the later gets shit done, if not in action and help from people who are compelled to take action and help those they have felt empathy for. Then in literally off-loading the emotional burden with the other that his back won’t break.
Do you think that words, labels, and their meanings,your cogitive five senses; are everything there is that describes every little part and piece of your life. Words are human made as a tranistory medium to communicate, so are your cognitive senses Limiting your your world to all these predefined notions as the only life there is, is like the old days when we thought that Earth is flat because we could neither see it from above, nor had the capacity to walk in a straight line around the earth. In more literal meaning, like an ostrich that buries its head in the sand so that if it doesn’t see its predator then it’s not there.
Words are usually convulated with the real universe, who’s by all human capacities, inventions happened and yet-to-come can never been comprehened or fathomed when cut to pieces and assigned to resonating human sounds that holds meanings for us only. No words, meanings, languages, or equations would ever be enough to confine the universe, by chopping it to bits and pieces of events, and things. For two simple reasons, the universe was here first, second you’re it. Can you put ALL yourself into words? All there is and yet to come? I don’t think you can, a knife can’t cut itself!
You’re limited, you’re whole..
Till next time!
