The previous post accumulated some thought provoking & profound responses from my beloved readers. In this blog, I'm going to try and give my point of view on some of the various questions. Some of the questions relate to how our mind makes us think & act in different ways, science itself is still unable to understand the complexities of the human mind, and so not everything can be answered, but everything can be opinionated. So here i go:
colorblind asked, "what is sanity"?
Sanity is the mask we put on our faces to hide the animals that we naturally are. To get by in this life as normal civilized human beings. When infact we are animals; albeit, lucky to have more brains than the other's and hence sitting comfortably be on top of the food chain. Literature and civilized society has emasculated us from being hunters & fighters into the everyday sissy's we have become. And to survive in this world, we have to keep a mask of sanity on our faces. If we let it slip too far, we'd be labelled mentally unstable.
And then the long list of anonoymous people; may I please reccomend that whoever writes a comment uses a nickname (like colorblind does) so its easier to tell different people apart. You dont have to sign up to do that!
Anon 1 wrote quite a lot about the country's situation and its people, what made me laugh the most was the part about "we dont pay our taxes". As soon as our trust worthy govt. officers sitting in the tax dept. stop asking for a Honda City everytime they come to do a audit, people would be more than willing to pay. Its a vicious cycle that can not end, cause everyones want aish. And what are we doing to make this place better? Absolutely nothing. Just hoping for the best. What can I do anyways? I am just one person lol. The people who should be doing something are sitting high up in the government ranks, it is their duty to fix these problems.
Anon 2 mentioned the importance of taking the name of Allah SWT before everything we do. I agree :)
Anon 3 raised some good questions:
"why do we treat each other as worthless trash?"
Because that's the only time we feel good about ourselves; by treating other's as worthless trash. We have evolved into such appalling individuals, we dont do anything right anymore. Instead of listening, we wait for our turn to speak. Instead of debating, we stamp our authority. Instead of showing compassion and love, we show our hatred. Instead of forgiveness, we show intolerance.
"Why cant be appreciate what we have?"
Some people do, seriously. Other's that do not, obviously take what they have for granted and always look for things they do not have. Thats not too bad either because that keeps you struggling in this life for betterment. However, acheiving a balance between the two is the most difficult part.
"We spend our entire life following our ego.....what is ego"?
I liked that quite a lot. But Im not really sure if we spend our entire life following our ego, I think we spend most of it chasing our ego. Trying to kick it up the backside so maybe it stretches a little higher than before. When in reality, what we really need is a kick on our own backside. But then again, ego is what our society has given us. Ego is a major part of our so-called civilized society, our acheivements in life are what give us our ego. What I really cant stand are dumb people, with little or no acheivements in life having a massive ego.
"Are we still going to wait for people to dissappear from our lives"?
well...yeah...we can wait for that to happen, or make the best of the time we spend with these 'people', so atleast that way you can look back one day and say to yourself "hey, atleast I had the time of my life!"
