In the rearview mirror is the silhoutte of hazy clouds of the evening
Lazy hues of red and blue blending the hallucination of calm
Let’s look ahead instead ….. the storm has been waiting for long now!

Dominantly Powerful

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!

Loopholes

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 –

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!

Self-Reflection

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!

Daily Prompt: Study

The Mediocre and the Elusive!

Mediocrity is about thinking that you know a lot and you own a lot, when you really do not! Now is the world of ‘free speech’ and ‘Internet!’ Everybody thinks they are ‘the one’! Watching news makes them think they know stuff! Reading blogs makes them know the mysteries of life! But does it, really?

What is to be known is that reality is everyone’s personal or influenced view!

Mediocrity is perceptual. Everybody thinks that they are supreme and everyone else is Mediocre! Whereas the truth is, and everybody knows the truth sub-consciously, that almost every one is Mediocre.

Mediocrity comes in all forms! You can be a Mediocre human in general, a Mediocre Engineer, a Mediocre Journalist etc.

The context here is ‘Money’, ‘Capital’, ‘Dough’ or whatever you call it!

The average common man with a job and a family to run is the lowest category of the capitalist mediocre.The average common man thinks that the internet revolution made him ‘global’, but he does not realize that he is not even ‘local’ anymore. Earlier, he used to believe his eyes and ears combined together with the ‘non-televised’, ‘from the horse’s mouth’ information. But, lately, he just believes everything on the Internet! His eyes are covered  with dreams of becoming rich! He is the worst kind of mediocre!

Mediocrity, today, has no escape! You have to feed yourself with information and you have no time! If you spent enough time and energy to find out who Mr. Donald Trump really is, with physical evidences of his past conducts and his business progress, then when will you find time to buy the groceries for the week? When will you party? When will you wash your car? When will you do the laundry? So, you quickly run through your bookmarked media and news sites to gaze through the latest on Mr. Trump and move on with the common opinion. Or maybe, sometimes you will find an odd opinion about him and yay or nay to it! But, that is it! You have so much microscopic data to analyze and organize on your plate that you forget that the microscopic data in everybody’s else’s plate is related to yours and needs the right communication and reasonable discussion!

Then, above the average commoners in the hierarchy of ‘the mediocre’ community, there are the ones who think that they are rich,  but they are not! They think that they are the ‘boss’ and need only a little more money to join the royal forces! They are the real hard workers! They spend their lives figuring out how to get to the Elites! The average common man also thinks that these are the most rich people on earth, but remember, he knows nothing!

Some of them do make it, to the top, but rather ‘the mediocre at the top’! Now this bunch is one rung higher than the one mentioned above and thinks that they are the richest on earth! These people are actually rich for most of us because they do have a lot of money and power, but they are one below the highest form of capitalist royalty – The Elusive Bunch!

The Elusive bunch has so much money that it is a joke to them! They live very personally knowing everyone else have already given up their privacy by buying free information on the Internet via social media, marketing, media, entertainment or a million other ways. They can and do buy media, governments, financial tycoons from time to time to have their wishes fulfilled. They own the world and the world does not even know! You are at their mercy directly or indirectly and you have no clue! This is the irony of us human beings with averagely endowed dough!

So remember, we are all monetarily Mediocre and the ones who are not, are Elusive!

But, ask yourself, is money that important?

Mediocrity is your comfort zone, staying there or rising beyond is a massively logical predicament!

“Mediocrity” is like a spot on a shirt, it never comes off! – Haruki Murakami
