The Wonderland of the Soul and Mind

All the society is trying to show you how you should behave and react, including the closest family members. But the real gift is when a child is growing up to be a man. All the seeds planted early now blossom, and the man he becomes is going to have to take a lot of things into his stride as they come. Then he learns what it takes to be a man to be an effective and a valuable member of the very same society. If he is loving and caring, he is soon going to find a wife and start a family that he would like to support with his all heart. But then the trouble begins and a young man sees he is beginning to lose the thread or lose his head, things begin to make so little sense in the end. He cannot cope with the reality any longer despite his greatest needs or his ambitions, he is losing a grip on his life that was supposed to be totally different.

Merging

When you look around you would see most satisfied faces, as you leave the house to move through the sun, between the raindrops, and through the snowy landscapes of the nearby surroundings. You could merge yourself with life, just by absorbing the sun radiation and letting it carry you over till the next day until the final day of your life. Unfortunately things are never going to work like this. Most people are already settled into their routines, they are already living their lives while you keep wandering helplessly around the places where there is no one around to guide you. You should be your own ultimate guide that no one should be elbow to move forwards or backwards but that would pose quite a challenge so if you are not feeling ready to tackle the world on your own despite your experience that you have gained so far, then, probably this is no longer a place for you to live purposedly. Without the courage to admit your weaknesses and without the guts to press on you would be ever lagging behind no matter what anyone would say. And when it comes to character shaping you can only achieve it through direct contact with the reality. But that will poison and further harm you, you will not stand a chance to merge if you do not develop some sort of thick skin or capacity to deal with life effectively and on your own. Without that act of courage you would be just stranded on one of the islands of life for good without ever hoping to be seen marooned like this beyond the space and time. That is the golden cage that is awaiting you at the corner where you finally see the golden bars of the cage you can ever get through.

Some Spiritual Soup for Your Soul (SSYS)

Everyone needs to raise their spirits at times, and sometimes the sun is more than enough to help us shed the layers of sadness that has come over us with or without the reason. The I is drenched in the cocktail of yesterday and the future, and to be better equipped for life’s demands. Why would anyone want spirituality anyway? It is like we need an anchor to hold us still despite any kind of storm that might be coming to sweep us over, it gives that necessary room for air to inhale. People seek various anchors, mostly stability, as expressed by having a job, family, health. These are your typical anchors, commonly presented in surveys on happiness. This itself is quite elusive so that makes us cling to what we have even more so that we are safe from any danger. Unfortunately the sole belief in any higher power cannot protect us from pain and any accounts of miraculous escapes so adroitly recounted by some are just few and far in between, so they can be safely dismissed as fairy tales. If they were not just this then how come so may other who prayed just as vehemently received nothing and perished amidst the chaos and mayhem. Why? You can choose to believe whatever you want, but even if you follow some higher power, it is not to be saved, it is more to make sense of what is happening to you as a person and a human being, and also to prevent yourself from harming the others.

You Shall Not Harm

That is what the evolution was meant for: the freedom from harm and pain, the freedom from exerting control over people’s minds and hearts, so how come thousands chosen by their gods were proven wrong? This is the most simplistic thinking there could be, but as they tell you to suffer in silence, when they mute your voice, when they say you should feed their ego and live as they say, then you may be abandoned as the rules of the game are condoned by those who set them and no one else. They proclaim you shall not harm and yet they do, they tell you to sing your praises to the god and they demand utter subjugation and being sung praises to. How funny all rebellions seen in that light that suffer a defeat or a victory and the cycle is repeated. So what does that leave us with when it comes to some soul soup?

Acts of Daily Kindness

Little acts of goodness towards other people are what we should be on the lookout for expressed in the right context, not being taken over by your anger whenever the triggers are pushed and people react. It is when you become unconsciously good then when good is done. Without any effort or pushing. I just wanted to help does not really cut it.
