The confusion was as bewildered as the mid life crisis
The fear was as scary as a mother with menopause
The sorrow was as gloomy as every Sunday evening
The light was as bright as the pre death hallucination,
The violence was as bloody as the first period in a girl’s life,
The darkness was as blinding as the sun directly glaring into the eyes,
The chaos was as organized as Nature or God’s work !
About two years back in history, I saw the live stand up of my favorite comic then – Louie CK, when he came to Detroit. I was furious that he was wearing a suit, which was contrary to his philosophy of life and stand-up image (I was and am not sure if those two co-exist or not). He was funny with his life anecdotes and tragic but humorous sexual miscarriages, and he did explain, to my satisfaction, as to why he was wearing as suit. But, this dissatisfaction and its removal was just the tip of the iceberg! He was and I think still is, ignoring the recent reveal which is very hard to ignore and relate to his stand up stories, one of the best comic writers and performers in Hollywood. His glory came with his earlier stand-up and the wild rant about masturbating. His T.V. show ‘Louie’ was my favorite among everything funny I have ever watched in life. He used many philosophical layers in his humor and I absolutely loved it, but only until last year before his comic dominance over my humor frequency fizzled out when the stories of his ‘masturbating in front of some women (The count is five until now)’ came out. Therefore, my theory that Power (which in his life was being the top comedy writer and performer, and MONEY, of course) corrupts everyone. He was one of the few humans whom I thought was disconnected with the use of his name and image, but turns out he was not!
Therefore, a lot of us have these dark urges, which we either ignore completely or keep in check. The reason that we can accept for keeping a check on these DOMINANT urges is to be a good human being. Nevertheless, as soon as even a small amount of any category of Power (Money, Image, Acceptance, Love etc.) is realized, humans, these days, tend to exploit it. They become dominant and assume that no one is ever going to tell on their torn and dark conscious. However, Karma is a bitch! But, how does a human being go from normal to weird to dominantly abusive?
My theory is that we keep flexing our conscious every now and then to achieve some goal, personal or professional. We justify it in our own head and never speak of it. This keeps happening until one day some of it is abhorrently exposed or confronted. We live in a very complicated world now and everyone wants to get rich instantly. This makes us very vulnerable to becoming dominant because the common misconception is that if you ask dominantly, a large percentage of human beings are assumed to not to fight back and just submit to your demand. I find it much more comforting when someone does something out of Love or Respect. It creates the kind of Peace that makes me sleep at night. Dominance in knowledge is very healthy in a moment of making a decision, but no one is ready to live with the fuzzy logic of ‘Using only when necessary.’ The brain is trained to work in routines and hence once the feeling of being dominant is born, it stays and sometimes finishes one’s career in a momentary glitch.
So, my question still stands, is there anyone who did not compromise his or her conscious to become Powerful and DOMINANT? If not, then we really live in ‘Kali-yug’ – the age of downfall, as mentioned in the Hindu mythology.
Randomly, to quote the band Pearl Jam’s song ‘I am mine’ –
“And the feeling, it gets left behind, all the innocence lost at one time, significant behind the eyes, there is no need to hide!”
Because it explains that if you have lost your innocence, then be yourself and tell the world who you are, so that they can treat you accordingly. Do not just hide away and torture people at the expense of their trust, love, and helplessness or simply respect!
Always remember, you are not DOMINANT, it is just that people are loving, kind, tolerant and sometimes helpless. Start sewing your conscious now! Or maybe it is too late!
You are Agile until someone deciphers your technique, puts it in a process and delivers to the highest bidder. Then, you are just a competitor to everyone who bought your process.
e.g. Facebook bought Instagram
So rich people win, even with a little bit of wit. Unless you open source it, then it is in the hands of all humanity to use and come out with an even better version.
e.g. Tesla open sources all of its patents to be used in good faith.
However, you are scared that it will fall into the hands of the evil! Nevertheless, Evil can be rich and can bid for it too! What it needs is a filter; a filter to filter out the evil!
But, have you defined your evil yet?
Or are you even Agile yet?
Almost everyone likes the short cut available with no legal, mental, physical or societal hassles! But, no short-cut ever created a loophole so clean that all these categories were satisfied and your conscious did not flex out even a little bit to accommodate any consequence whatsoever! Every one flexes their conscious to find loopholes or short cuts in real life. It is because everyone wants to make the most of everything in their lives. The consumer has so much knowledge at hand through the modern virtual God – Google and its numerous other deities online which help us with daily dose of loopholes to move around faster and quicker without the legal hassles. The mental, physical and societal part damage varies from individual to individual.
Some weird loopholes I found on the internet and through trusted sources are below. The only warning is to indulge in more info before implementing so that I do not share all the bad karma that your swearing will generate if it does not work! Just Joking! I do not care much! But ,do your research though –
- You can legally drink with your parents anywhere regardless of your age. Yup, this is one way to get drunk at the age of five, but, the trick is to however convince your parents for the same! All the best kids! The parents can order drinks for their kids and there is no law against that!
- If the loan sharks are behind repossessing your car due to defunct loan, just park it in the neighbor parking when they arrive. Contracts do not allow them to tow away a vehicle from an address not on the contract even if the car is visible.
- If you are flying spirit, and you have not bought the carry-on luggage online, you can still carry a bigger bag (slightly bigger and NOT check in bag size) if you have the confidence to look into the eye of the officials and still not invite them consciously to look at your bag size. The downsize of them finding out is at least 55 bucks and that is the risk to this mental loophole that your bag will not be found for fine!
- You can dig your own man cave as deep as possible when 1. you own the land and 2. do not come out of the other side on a Chinese man’s land. This depends on how seriously deep you want the man cave!
- A very sad loophole that I recently found through a personal source is re-adoption of children. Parents can put their children for re-adoption if they are not happy with the ones they adopted. This should be a serious crime as these children go from home to home and are inflicted with serious mental trauma due to his hopping around. I hope this one closes soon!
The best loophole that I would like to find is towards a meaningful life. A loophole that makes my passion run through a short cut and arrive at the destination it wants. This can definitely happen if you look for the right loopholes and not the ones that make your lazy conscious serve itself! So go out, and get the life loophole!
And, so, I sit down sometimes, just to STUDY myself.
To gather the data of the conscious, sub-conscious and un-conscious.
How much love and hate have I encountered?
How much have I absorbed without reason?
How much have I asked myself – Is this the most important thing to do right now?
How much have I indulged in everything and everyone I love?
The reflection of self is the reality check of life! STUDY yourself!
The day is dry with faded insignia of a hot summer. Clouds are in the mood to pour, but holding on in fury. Crops are swinging in chaos. Wind is bleak and edgy. The scenery is a sad blues song. The heart skips a beat, but the mind refuses to accept defeat. Rebellion is mostly verbose and frustrating. Society is always unhappy with my thoughts. What needs to change ? Should I step back into the fantastic weather prepared for me by the society? Or should I be EVOKE to enter the storm of acting on it!
Both stood side by side, to the naked eyes of many looking for Illumination
The one to the right was bright and tangible
The one to the left seemed far away but was mesmerizing and beautiful
The dreamers and the realists made their choice, respectively
I just lost focus uncovering the layers from both spectacles!
‘Be Yourself!” is being tossed around a lot these days! What people tend to forget is that even Adolf Hitler was being himself!
But nowadays, all the humans in front of the camera suggest being oneself. It is the mantra of this generation and maybe a few more to come.
Do not join the herd! Absolutely not! But the herd might be decently and relatively correct about what they teach, or preach!
Most (Read: All) of the artists/ politicians/ public figures etc. seem to be very honest of their character and traits. But most (Again, read: all) of them have a PR team running their image. A group of people deciding for them how, when and what to spit out of their mouth, or even swallow in! These hired teams maintain an image of the artist which sells them to the public!
e.g. If a politician (Read: Trump) is speaking honestly about the current policies with an opinion not accepted by everyone, one should try to comprehend that he is targeting the audience which is naive and not worldly, but in abundance though!
Everything and everyone has an image now. Because everything and everyone sells! But why do these artists/ politicians/ public figures etc. need advisers? They could do it for themselves too, right?
In my cumulative moving averaged opinion, there could be a few fundamental reasons to this:
- Humans cannot handle everything by themselves, delegating is considered entrepreneurial diligence!
- We always have the best practical advise for others! For ourselves, we have a large volume of self-indulgence and sub conscious self loathing. We do whatever we want to do. But in the identical situation, we advise the best practical solution to other human beings!
So don’t just be yourself! Be a decent human being too!
P.S: Human Beings are Selfish, Period!
