The Way We Live Life:
Do you ever wonder how we live life and why we live it the way we do?
Are you happy with it?
I am not.
Don’t take me wrong. I am very happy with my individual life at my personal level the way I live. What I am not happy with is the way we ALL live in relationship with one another. What I am not happy with is how much better I could have lived with all the people around me living as good a life as their desire along with their potential to live it was.
Let me clarify.
We are born with an almost unconditioned mindset. We learn whatever our environment teaches us. We are also born with our instinctive pattern that determines what our drives are going to be like.
Our environment comprises mainly the people surrounding us. They overtly or covertly keep teaching us as we keep growing older and bigger.
They Teach Us Wrong:
They teach us wrong, simply because they had learned it wrong too.
They teach us everything that goes contrary to our instinctive pattern.
They teach us to win even if at the cost of our fellow-beings. Our instinctive pattern drives us to play with them.
They teach us to keep safe. Our instinctive pattern drives us to explore adventures.
They teach us to follow protocols. Our instinctive pattern drives us to be spontaneous.
They teach us to control and hide impulses. Our instinctive pattern drives us to express them.
They teach us to shun our curiosity and follow the regimen. Our instinctive pattern drives us to go curious and explore.
They teach us to be efficient and utile. Our instinctive pattern drives us to be creative even if at the cost of efficiency and utility.
They teach us to pose being honest. Our instinctive pattern drives us to be authentic whether it is honest or dishonest.
They teach us to be a part of the rat race. Our instinctive pattern drives us to run for fun.
They teach us to be successful. Our instinctive pattern drives us to be meaningful.
They teach us to believe. Our instinctive pattern drives us to ask.
They teach us to conform. Our instinctive pattern drives us to question everything as we turn adult.
We Turn Into Robots:
They try their best to turn us into absolutely predictable virtual robots. Our instinctive pattern drives us to be unpredictably mysterious real humans.
The two sides of the forces contradict with each other and fragment our mind-body system in two antagonistic fragments, the two always keeping fighting with each other all through our life.
It keeps generating stress even when we are not doing anything stressful.
It Defeats Us:
It has been a chain of mistakes that we have kept repeating through the centuries. It has almost become a vicious circle now.
Where did we go wrong in the very beginning and why?
Fear made us compromise when we felt helpless, in order to preserve our species against the attacks from the cruelties of nature.
In the course of time, we were able to preserve our species, but fear didn’t leave us free. It rather turned into greed, aggression, ambition and the desire to control.
We Are Dangerous Creatures:
We turned into the most dangerous animals on the planet, dangerous not only for the other species but for our own as well.
We killed our own fellow-beings in the name of war and called it patriotism.
We replaced our instinctive drives with narrow emotions. Emotions always serve narrow interests. They can never be as wide as instinctive drives.
Today we have become victims to our own aggression against our own self, our minds suppressing their own instinctive drives in the name and for the sake of the most elusive concept called progress.
We have become obsessed with eccentric progress, unable to realize that we have gone regressed in our minds and our drives which could have paved our path to organic progress much faster and much greater.
We have become victims to keep doing violence on our own self all through our life.
That’s the way we live.
