Distracted

US Eyes

What good do rights and constitutional laws do when a vast majority of U.S. Citizens choose to live most of (if not all of) their lives following a redundant routine from about the age of 5, with only slight variations of differences between certain age groups.

An alarm goes off, you wash your face and grab something for breakfast or opt out of food and go to your nearest Starbucks for a cup of Joe. Shortly following this comes work or school (sometimes both) where you will spend at least 8 hours of your day (for roughly about 12 standard school years). Some of us have the pleasure of working at a job that fulfills our passions and desires, (but most of us don’t) or you are stuck somewhere for the money, hoping on  daily basis to make ends meet.

I feel that here is where the social divide occurs; people want to base judgments off of titles (i.e.being a doctor in today’s time = success) when in alternating thought, judgments should be based off of what we do. A title could be just that! We have all had an experience when someone with a renowned title has failed to meet your expectations, whether it had been a doctor, teacher, or engineer, one must subdue the urge to cast judgements based off of titles/ financial status. This is part of the American problem…

Transcending back to my preliminary point, once work/ school are over with for the day, Americans typically go home, shower, eat, and watch t.v. (or browse social media sites). We do this until our bodies have had enough and urge us to go to sleep, only to wake up and do the exact same thing. Although at surface this seems like a harmless way to live, I beg to differ. It’s almost like our life has become quite opposite, we claim to be alive and well, yet all the while, humanities morality is screaming out for a savior. 

Americans have not only began this downward spiral of solitude and neglect, but they are also breeding this unfortunate habit to their children, only to worsen each generation at a greater magnitude every time. Be mindful that I am not claiming every American to live this way, surely there are several who have “awaken” to this truth (like me), but that is only good enough for a sparse moment in time. What good does being awake do if you are not trying to better our future, if there is never an attempt to make a change; Those that are awaken shall not be for too long, a complacent mind is almost as bad as a clueless one.

A more plausible offense is to be awake, but stricken by distraction! Although being distracted alludes one to assume that the ability is present to shut off/turn on this feature, it is not a simplistic ability. The whole ideology around American culture sets American’s up to essentially NOT LIVE, to be stagnant, to not question/wander. Everything is handed over to us now (in a sense) in exchange for the worst element in the American Economy, money.

We are manipulated into thinking and placing focus on money, it is the answer to all of our problems, with it, we can obtain food, water, medicine, shelter, therapy, and almost anything else one’s heart desires. We are not willing to fight or put in the work anymore for what REALLY matters like equality, freedom, the TRUTH. We are almost forced to be reliant on the economy, forced into bullshit labor only to still never feel satisfied because we are not fulfilling our will’s goal.

We are distracted!

Obsessing over minute instances that solely affect key people around us, closing off our mind to the rest of the world, failing to embrace other cultures and morals. Instead, we are taught to “have the London look”, or dress in designer wear. We spend our whole “life” making money, only to spend it on irrelevant items and continue enforcing this faulted and unfair cycle of destruction.

Destruction of not only the “American Dream”, but destruction of humanity. Stop being distracted, WAKE UP!

Satisfaction

flowers-blog

To make things crystal, I will begin with stating: Sat-is-fied (contended; pleased). Why is there no attachment of time to this definition? Is satisfaction directed to only be momentarily and vanishing? Why is it internalized as finite automatically?

I once presumed that this word meant an ever lasting feeling of pleasure and contentment, until I began to realize that truly staying satisfied seems next to impossible. The human will is hungry and determined to strive, if one allows their mind/body to realize their wills’ needs, then one will be a being of success and leisure. Money will not be an object of concern, more of a mere tedious manipulation of sorrow and pain used to purchase swanky and/or vital supplies.

Love would be perfect and whole, no yearn for new, unknown, mystery… just strife for truth and contentment… one would feel the attainability of Love.

Family would be of no judgement, disappointment, or greed for everyone would be satisfied eternally where the cards currently lay. We would know how to lead the continuation in our lives without causing disease and distress onto others.

Work would always be a wonder of nirvana and euphoria, orgasmicly feeling a sense of change, inspiration, and pride throughout each and every moment spent within this area of life.

Friends would be of no constitute or necessity, they would truly be present and available for you and only you. No want for attention, information, or love would be desired for it would already be present.

I conclude with a proposition, must we as humanity create a new “word” for longterm pleasure and contentment?

Shall that word be unrealistic?

Shan’t it be Now?

The “Kindness” of Your Heart

 

The human body has several body parts which instantaneously function like a symphony in spirit of sustaining what we call “life”. In this case, by “life” I am simply referring to the act of breathing, having the ability to wake up healthy each day. There are an uncountable amount of ways to view this term “life”, therefore I bare you my meaning to cease all basphomy. At this point, I will only speak of one instrument in the symphony, the human heart.

I am no scientist, nor do I even bother familiarizing myself with scientific-al rambles; I say rambles because I strongly view science as an empty opinion. It does nothing but states/studies the processnever will it conclude or inform one about the actuality of any beginning!

“This almost endless task the natural sciences make easier by means of abstractoions, drawing together what is general in order to separate what is particular.”                                                                                                               – Schopenhauer

I will resist the urge to speak more about this matter and storage it for a latter moment.

Do not judge or falsely accuse me when I speak of the heart, for I am instilling this segment now to clear any misconceptualities. As I speak of the heart, I am stating and objectifying it through my will; I am open to discussions, not objections.

It shall cause no surprise to hear that your heart is one of the key instruments in sustaining life, what intrigues me ever more though, is what has not been contemplated or studied… your heart’s amount of “kindness”. Emotion is a precarious concept, it can be felt, faked, or faulted, nonetheless, it is an attribute that we, beings, posses. There exists a saying that I hear quite frequently, “Do it out of the kindness of your heart.” I would like you, fellow Truth Seeker, to re-examine this saying once more. This quote is imposing onto the heart a plurality–> being not only is it an organ which sustains life, but it is also capable of showing/creating acts of kindness.

Kindness is an emotion, an emotions is felt, not through touch… but through your mind.  It is a finite misconception that a heart is what “produces” these emotions, this is not the case; it is in fact, your mind. Just as the mind produces pleasure, pain, complacency; this is not the heart’s duty. I do not blame thee though for possessing this idea vice-verse, we are unfortunately taught several fallacies in our young public educational career which we carry on throughout our time on Earth. If one ceases to push pass this “object” in search of true will, then one will unfortunately end up in a solitude of blindness ( i.e. Plato’s Cave; for those who I have lost in my writing). For one to claim that “an act of kindness” can come from your heart irks me, it sounds incoherent, we are placing onto an object a power that it does not posses! For arguments sake, I will quite briefly ponder this conception…. of an “act of kindness.”

How is such an act even measurable? How can one truly know infinitely if another being is acting out of kindness (remember fellow Truth Seeker, we are placing such an implausible idea on the stand for it’s sentencing; we must not shut out this conception completely without analyzing it for ourselves). It is simple for one to claim the attribute of kindness, partially for the reason being that kindness is also based off of perception. What I see as kind, you may see as greedy, there is a problem with words; they can be perceived falsely, and can go un repaired if not addressed. In sake of argumentation, “kind” is referencing towards doing something extra and unexpected for someone other than yourself; being selfless. “I got you this just because” or “Sure, you can have $20”, these words place a mask of kindness onto those who speak them, but one can not view into a soul –> a mind. It is a grief possibility that these beings have become too accustomed to flaunting this mask, they seem to be kind; when what lays behind this mask could in fact be an alternative motive.

Politics are the clearest paradigm where alternative motives can be observable. The politician promises, smiles, reassures, reiterates, all in hopes of being chosen. Once this goal is attained, the politician suddenly remains complacent with these issues where there was once a drive, a fire; only to ad hoc hominem “My hands are tied with this issue”. I pose another form of example; The mother and father pride in dropping their children off every day for school, they see perfect attendance as an honorable award; when in reality, the parents are using the school as as daycare while they handle what needs to be done. And another, a dog obeys and seizes to use the house as a toilet, only so when the owner arrives back home, a treat will be presented to said dog. I am willful that one of these archetypes allow my point to be understood.

On the contrary, a plant. A plant performs it’s daily duties for the planet, it gets pollinated, breathes in Carbon dioxide, produces for the humans oxygen. One of the major necessities humans need to live relies on the plant. Is this a clear form of the kindness of your heart? Is a plant capable of possessing such a kindness?

A plant does not have a heart.

WILL; It is mere will of a plant which drives it to truly dmonstrate an act that does not souley benefit itself.

My expectancy is for you, fellow Truth Seeker, to stop relying on fallacy, and start awakening to reality. We as beings must cease with the contamination and infectious spread of lies!

We must begin to awaken and spread the TRUTH.

Women & the “BackSeat”

the-weeping-woman

I am a soul with a mind that is continuously engrossed with various topics. I appreciate a challenge in attempting to change my methods, but I can almost guarantee they will fall short. I do not write for your opinions or satisfaction… I right for a movement, an edification; I write for those who seek the Truth.

For as long as my mind can wonder, it seems pretty evident that women have always been in the backseat. Not put second to men, but instead put last completely. Positioned behind every minority, animal, and even historical document… women seem to not only be forgotten, but they are also continuously pushed and silenced from their thoughts, needs, and passions. Most upsetting of all, they were denied a VOICE.

Starting off as a part of the womb, girls are already being brainwashed into taking part in womanly duties. Example, once two parents discover the gender of their baby is female, they instantly begin to decorate the females room with pink, bows, princesses, little kitchen sets, cleaning supplies in toy format, they even go as far as to buy a “toy baby” to give to their own child. Females are basically thrown the demands of motherhood from the second of their birth. No one can argue that a female makes these choices for herself, a child in general can not even make up their minds when it comes to their choice in food, more less be able to make a choice to turn motherhood into playtime.

I see this everywhere, it is upsetting and despicable. Seeing a young female pushing a toy stroller with a toy baby in it. It is simply a form of manipulation… caused by the major toy companies. They have instilled into our minds that this type of behavior from small females is acceptable in today’s society. Instead of forcing these females to discover motherhood at a young age, why do we not place maps, blue prints, books, and pen/paper in their hands? Why must we remain conformed in a society that has always known “the women cooks, cleans, cares for the children… the men make the money and have all say so in the house”. I say no… NO MORE!

I do not know if this muddles anyone else’s minds… but I do intend for these words to inspire and awaken those women, young or old, to stand up and use the voice that they now have today! Thanks to remarkable women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, women now are able to vote, work, attend school… and truly make something of yourselves. It is not the men who are suppressing women any longer, no.. it is WOMEN themselves! Do not fall into the ambush of the toy companies, the “traditional duties” that women are supposed to perform, or the complacency that sometimes men push onto women.

If you who are living today do not make use of the history and struggles women have gone through to get here… those who fought for this cause will have died in vain and women could possibly REMAIN in the backseat; not in their own lives… but the backseat of the World.

Philosophy and Sex for Breakfast.

veggie

Along with a cup of coffee, my morning has begun with the contemplation of life as a mere metaphor in reference of a vegetable. As you read my thoughts, one must keep and open and critique-free mindset; let words just be words as representations in themselves and nothing more unless fair warned.

Imagine the fetus stage of life as being a seed in a packet. A seed amongst others, no exact order of what seed will be picked to plant… just a randomized process of chance. This is merely representing the sperms inside a man’s scrotum, they do not have the ability to choose which one will be picked to enter and attach to the women’s ovaries, and then create the first stage of what we know as life.

Once the seed has been planted into the fertilized soil of the Earth, it is then watered and cared for until the development process reaches an end. As the sperm is implanted into the woman’s uterus and “sticks”, the woman is now responsible (like the farmer) to feed, water, and care for this developing being.

When the developing stage of the seed is over, it is now easy to see that the seed is no longer; now lives a ripe and ready to pick vegetable (for sake of example). I believe that like the vegetable ready to be picked, humans too are sort of waiting for this as well. What I am inferring is that humans are vying to feel realization and enlightenment in order to live. Just like the vegetable (considering it is a thing in itself) is waiting for it’s will on Earth to be fufilled by being picked and eventually eaten by a human. If the vegetable however is NOT PICKED at the right time, or even not picked at all, this once living and full of will vegetable begins to die. This is the statement that will lead us into my final point persay. If the human does not become “picked” it too slowly begins to die. You see, humans like vegetables, are filled with will; it is what drives us and gives us the sense of purpose.

For the unfortunate human that remains “un-picked” , it will definitely be a sad and purpose-less life. Said being will remain living in a complacent and routine filled way… slowing dying day by day until the capsule of said being’s body can go on no longer. I want you all to realize that UNLIKE the vegetable, we have the ability to awaken ourselves (or be picked)! The vegetable can only sit and wait, full of hope and will, always relying on something external other than itself. The human on the other end, does not have to sit around and rely on these ether related subjects… YET SO MANY OF US DO!

Having stated my morning thoughts, my hope for you all is to stop being complacent and placing your fate elsewhere. Realize that fate is your choice and always has been, stop choosing to remain “un-picked”! Awaken, question, search, give your will the ability to live!
