Dreamers

Some posts or article come across and they have to be reblogged, their message too priceless to let die without some effort as spreading it. We spend too much time writing about and commenting on the tick-tock world and so little on what really matters, I think. Here Neelam gives us a shove off the comfortable and makes us question why we settle for so much less than what we are capable of. Enjoy “Dreamers” and if you like it, let her know, please.

The Convictions

The human life is marked by uncertainties, unpredictability and mortality. However, the virtual world suppresses the inevitable reality and replace it with shallow facade. We are prevented from embracing the ruthless elements of nature which would invoke our inner strength and develop the psyche. We thus become incapacitated to tap into the vast amount of energy inherent in us. Our mind become accustomed to the rule-ruts. When that happens, it’s more difficult to exercise our creative muscles. Cynicism would settle in and the thinking pattern becomes restive.

Sometimes the easy option comes with heavy price. It’s the price that one would pay to give up dreams to take whatever that the survival game would offer. To be safe and sound within the cocoon of artificial comfort without confronting the storm. To hibernate under false pretenses and throw away pride and dignity. Be predictable and avoid aberrant thinking. Don’t ever wander…

    Thanks George… and that reminds me I’m probably behind on my next “Manifesto” blog post. It’ll have to wait until tomorrow!

    While this smacks of a stringing together of trite phrases and a pastiche of MEMEs it is always god to posit the benefits of a life lived not succumbed to inertia. I would like to remind you and others as well that posturing from a position of intellectual superiority and “We get it-ness, pity the poor fools” and pigeoholing ‘the noise that emanates from average minds” is the antithesis of open mindedness. Like that bit about rap. Just because we choose to hit the off switch on certain things,condemning them as somehow “less” is never a wise move. I quote Dickens “This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased.” Ignorance – and all its degrees, eh? The only way to educate is to enagage and embrace, not condemn. Even the average minds and ESL positivity MEME slingers.

    Thanks for commenting Phil. I have to admit though, I tried the front door, then the back door on your comment and I’m still not sure if I’m supposed to take my shoes off before I come in, and if so, where to put them… I see a mention of ESL there but I don’t know what it refers to. Yes, Neelam is obviously an ESL’er as I am but I am not sure if you’re hitting on that or something else. Are you ‘dissing’ her because of some grammatical foibles? I assume the mention of rap is for me since I have made it very clear that I despise rap as any kind of information media or entertainment or both. Even if it had a “message” the medium is a total turn off generally used to disrupt other peoples’ peace and quiet, the little that can be found in this foundering and floundering society. “The only way to educate is to engage and embrace, not condemn.” Criticism isn’t condemnation. If something’s bad or evil; if there is slovenliness, laziness or other more serious “sins” let’s point them out. Embrace evil? Embrace bigotry? Embrace lies? Embrace racism? Not a chance. Why would I engage such things, even? I’m definitely not big on political correctness. Why pretend to be “ok” with something I wholeheartedly despise because it is, in fact, despicable? Political correctness is institutionalized hypocrisy.

    “Unrestrained access into the imaginative world has enriched our world in unprecedented ways.The seed of greatness lies within ourselves. Human beings are born with intellectual ability to grasp the nature of existence. Self-introspection is not to be postponed until all of the life force is spent. The contraptions of the modern world serve as distraction from the mortal nature of human life. Therefore solitude has become so essential for enlightenment. Detachment will renew us from within. We should learn to swim against the current. ”

    Wonderful and spot on correct! Over the years, I have learned to trust my inner voice, my intuition, since the truth, in all ways, is so difficult to find these days. Thank you for this!
