How To Live In This Insane World Sanely?

Watch this video before you start reading.

“If you say getting the money is the most important thing,you will spent your life completely wasting your time”

Our whole world revolves around money.Our decisions,from what to wear and what eat to where to go and what to do depends on money.This is the structure of our society and the educational system is one of the main reasons this is happening.It tells us what to think and how to live. Our thoughts become mechanical so does our life.Be born,go to school,get high grades,graduate,get a job,make money,marry someone,have kids and force them to have the same life as you had…

“Get a job”.The main criterion to choose a job is money,not what you like,what you desire but money. There are everywhere sad people having to  waste  8 hours everyday doings things they don’t like to do,cooperating with people they don’t like to see.Think about it,24 hours per day,lets say you sleep 8 hours,from the 16 hours that you are awake the 8 of them you work.That’s what the world demands you to do,not to be yourself,not to do things you want to do but follow a career(which is a 20th century invention) and waste your life.

But why people follow this patter of life?Well,most of them don’t even think about it,they just run along with the rest. But what about the others?Then ones that have thought about it?Why they decide to follow this lifestyle?Fear is the answer.It’s a fight within themselves.They feel they have to follow the others but they don’t want to and yet they do because they believe that this lifestyle provides them security. Instead,hopefully they will understand that they are not secure because they are always depended,whether on society or their boss,because they need money and when you depend on somebody fear always exists.This way of living provides them also anxiety,anger,frustration and alienation from their own selves.

But if you don’t follow the crowd the whole world is against.You won’t have money,you won’t have a job,you will starve,you may be envious not to be like someone else. You will be alone and you have to stand alone. Can you?It’s very dangerous unless you have the intelligence to withstand the world.You have to find out how to live in this world of mindless slaves and sleeping revolutionists,a world of conformity and comparison,how to live in this insane world sanely.

Are We Living Or Just Surviving?

September 12, 2012 3 comments

What are you waiting for?

“You know what your problem is?”

“I’m starving and no one will feed me.”

“No, you are waiting to be fed.”

Look at the fish in the picture above.He eats,he sleeps,he’s safe.He lives a comfortable life. But he is already dead. Living means experiencing new things but for him everyday is going to be the same until the day of his death.

Living like ghosts in a cage we call shelter. Trapped in the daily routine,trapped in our thoughts,trapped in our fears,trapped within the limits we set ourselves. Living the life everyone else has. Having the dreams everyone else has? Being born original by dying as a copy of society’s standards.

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”- Jiddu Krishnamurti 

Is this what life is supposed to be?Are we living?Or we are just surviving?

Don’t we get bored in this dark room we live in?Why don’t we take the risk to open the door,we don’t know what’s behind it,but by opening it we will discover a new world. Even if that world is worse than the dark room it will be a challenge for us to discover our strength and weakness.

Why don’t we set goals,build courage and braveness,find our true passion and live the life we have always dreamed of?Why don’t we make changes,not any kind of changes,some say “WE MAKE CHANGES” yes you do but what kind of changes?Are those changes moves us forward?Or they move us backwards?Why don’t we create our own paths instead of walking paths created by others?

WHY?

“make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
