When you connect there is a tug. We have started life connected with our mothers umbilical cord. We are the only 'social' animal. Social being the key differentiator among all other animals. What we hold in us is the obvious need for society, but the inherent trait seems to be moving away from some and some are asked to learn to move away from such deep connections. We all wait for that one 'soul'mate where you feel closer than the bodies allow you to be. But life has come to a position where we are asked to be practical, not emotional. Higher need for IQ demands the need also for a higher EQ. How we connect is undermined by the strength of our needs to disconnect. Love has seen suicide and also acid attacks. Physical trauma to another is afforded to some as a remedy to self mental trauma. "It's time to move on" has been used by teenagers who have recently used their locomotory organs without parents help, we played with toys and games, and the new generation has started toying with emotions. Game of Life moved from the board game to reality. Mind games, emotional attyachar is common, political battlefields at home and work, we are said to have evolved. Ironically evolution is said to be a process where the stronger one survives, the weaker one bites the dust… does that indicate the weaker ones to have died out leaving a selfish, vindictive, narcissist individual hiding under the covers of a constant competition while nursing the hidden sensitive inferior individual dependant on drugs to get the most basic form of human need, sleep; and this is the strongest form of the majority of our humans! We have changed and change is supposed to indicate a betterment! Democratic v/s liberal v/s congressional v/s republican. Among progress against regress, I feel I am not only in the wrong era but also fighting for my survival in the wrong species! We called ourselves supreme, constantly beating around the forms of life trying hard to prove our supremacy but continued to live in ignorance of the real needs of things around us! This rant digresses because it is impossible to limit to what is the precise wrong among our age today! Tangents grow with our thoughts when we are today obese, poor, diversified, polluted in mind & body, in a state of denial, depression, while still trying hard to compete against the very sibling and parent we were the most connected to, murdering our children, raping infants, defiling psyches to grow in a state of delusion and depravity! The dictionary has added more words of negative connotations than positive! No wonder quacks and "god men" are making money while resorting to even evil antics. What are we headed to?? Frankenstein's monster was better than this, at least his alleged acts of monstrosity were the acts of an unsound mind. No wonder we need to culture our brain today to think positively, repackaging what we did in the past as "The Secret". The faults don't lie in our stars, but our heads and our thoughts! We are the monsters we warned children about. We are the ones we were warned to stay away from! And I don't see a remedy or change. It's unfortunate that we let this happen to us or that we reached a position of no return. We justify our demonised acts, we are no different from our ancestors who lived to indicate the devil to be the perpetrator of the evil acts we conformed to and the angel to have acted for our good. We are responsible for our own demonous acts.
*loud sigh* we have grown! And we continue to grow, to be nothing more than a show of "perfection" while we hide our horns and move on.
And like most other things the end is unknown and when you know it, it is too late to change it.
P. S. This was a type furiously without any intent to make just one point but the situation we all see ourselves in, so please ignore mistakes. Proof reading was avoided to add more to the tangential concerns and further adding to the already lengthy post ! 🤓
