They are battering on and on..
We should be aware of the growing concerns of this century – economic meltdown, climate change, causes of poverty, health & environment, atomic energy, technology, peace, security, AIDS, water , women rights…………
The jargon hits me hard – its cluttering my brain – this “we” thing has become so exasperating, that we actually do not know who will take responsibility of all our actions put together, and it is tiring for me to even remember who is the green ambassador, or the naked protestor strutting to save fur & animal skin, the Gandhi-an fasting to remove corruption from a few billion minds!
sometimes I have scary dreams with all these words doing a cosmic dance, all chaos in my head – (go green, save animals, vegan diet, no-paper communica, orphans, marine life, charity, third world, developing nation, oil spills, garbage, stock scam, construction, factory gases) and I wake up worried & scared what am I to do? I am a simple being who can at best – in its neatest frame of mind, can think of just itself!
Agreed , scientifically we homo sapiens are the most intelligent, advanced creatures on earth, and yes with the Apple and Microsoft, we have a come a long techno-way, but haven’t we taken this a bit too far? We have complicated things to the hilt, and now I am struggling with a few thousand ‘How to’ manuals and web instructions. It’s tiring with a capital T. Let’s Face it people, save a few ( Buddha, or a Gandhi and a Mother Teresa or the Pope, I can’t even think of anyone else), we are all simple humans who haven’t really reached a maturity level to understand global effects of our actions. We have wasted enuff time, energy and efforts to make everyone aware of the few hundred hazards of our advancements.
I say, if one strategy hasn’t worked for a long time, we need to change the strategy. It won’t hurt to take a step back from the BIG “WE” and get back to the simpler “I” level of action. My gut feeling is this strategy may have worked in ancient times, and it may work again to bring harmony back to my earth, at least for sure, in my heart, body n brain.
It’s easy, we’ve all done it before, easy to remember, with complete freedom to do as we (I) feel right, no worries to follow a step process or pattern, free from time limits – do as much or as often as you feel like, no negative side effects or overdose effects,
Sounds too good to be true, right? We are used to complicated processes, we can’t even believe something could be so easy, nice, and effective , and I am totally sounding like those misleading, faulty diet programs who promise and promise TOO many goodies with each scroll down till you are tired and frustrated that you just sign up and pay a few dollars, and get it off your back.
No sign up needed, no payment for this one, free to take all or leave midway, choose your own steps, you’ll see all these things come naturally to us, no advertising to convince me, no manual for teaching the do’s n dont’s – a humble promise it will bring rich results, and in case your definition of richness doesn’t match mine, it will still make you a few notches happier!
I will be good to myself – I will do things that make me happy and make me smile everyday. I will run, play and cook for myself (and people I care about).
I will eat as much as my body needs – I will be alert to my senses and body to understand when I have had enough. In India, they say – you will seldom see a fat dog, or a fat toad, because they sure know how much to eat. I may want to learn from my pet (or my nieghbours pet).
I will be self sufficient, and content with what I have.
I will walk , clear my mind & body of toxins.
I will love myself – this is the easiest of all. I will have a bath everyday, and keep myself, my clothes and my surroundings clean, I will not let anyone pass on germs to me.
I will not kill and eat – for the simple reason that all creatures have a right to live. Besides, bad animal rearing can cause flu & infections – I promised to keep my system clean, remember?
I will not hurt myself – which means I will drive safely, I will not get drunk and get into fights at the bar, I will be calm and not let anyone get mad at me.
I will respect my own private space, even in public. If I don’t shout and get angry, I will not give anyone a chance to get angry and break stuff around.
I will read every day, learn, and share my knowledge with someone.
I will concentrate on keeping my backyard clean…………
(let someone else worry about fixing the Ozone layer!)
