....the 26th. I just booted up the Laptop, in the meantime, I made myself a Latte Macchiato and had a look into the virtual world.
Outside, in the real world, it is always quite the same, the sun is shining, some clouds are drifting along the seemless skies. Birds are having their say...tweet, tweet, tweet nice, somewhat very relaxing.
The silence is deafening, I don't know why people say things like this, but they do. The earlier it is in the morning, the less men made noise pollution there is.
"How much better it can get?" I really ask myself in moments like these.
Just outside my office window this pigeon is limping along, I' have seen it around for quite some time. Wonder that the cats never got it. One of it's feets is crippled. Yeah, mother nature, ahh' well but it lives. Like the cats, they sleep 18 hours, or so, a day, but they are alive. If they are not sleeping, one can easely understand that they enjoy life as much as anybody else does.
40 steps of walking gives me quite a view, I would like to share it with you....
uuhhhh, quite a view, isn't it? And 31 C! Well, it's paradise! But it has a bit of a hook attached to it. Cause there where is paradise, there is hell as well, as there is no light without shadow. It seems that people make sure, maybe unconcious of it, that no one get's lost in paradise!
To have the little egos a bit cranked up. Some talk, as if they are talking to thousands, why they are shouting, even the only other person, who is listening, is less then a yard away? Or they drive around on their motorcycles with the muffler removed and make the most appalling noise one ever can imagine, but they sit on the bike as if they are the only ones in the entire universe!
Well, what to say.....how in heaven can they 'enjoy' this noise? Are they alive? Deaf, maybe...their perception is funtioning on a very different level.... somehow "Highway to Hell" comes to mind, but I prefer "Stairway to Heaven", if someone asks me.
We all have a choice, that is for sure, but many of us do not know what to choose. So we tend to make our choices on what we believe is fun, good, or think we 'need'. We are steadily driven by desire, not by fundamental needs.
Reflecting about it, I think we really do 'need' very little. Bu this is a entire different story.
First of all we NEED oxygen, at most our brain, a couple of seconds without and we are brain dead, 'vegetables'. Water, at least every 24 hrs., some food, funny, that we need water before food, we can go on a fast for weeks, but NOT without water!
Some clothing, one day we decided to walk through our lifes all dressed up. Some kind of hiding, of camouflage, we are hiding what we really are. Some dress up to impress others, some to show who they are, or want to be.
Are we just jealous of the peacocks? Then they are males who are the most beautiful, why is it so that in the human world women dress and make up with lipstick, mascara and stuff and men dress usual quite ordinary? In the animal kingdom it is the other way around, why I wonder.
Why do people think, if a male is dressed up, that he might be gay? Why?
Then on the contrary, if one goes to the beach, people wear as little as possible, why? I wonder. Why do they all dress up in office, at work on the streets and as soon as they are on the beach, or at the pool, they all almost strip naked.
Very strange, I think!
Most of us are just not aware of how much we are conditioned, by all kinds of imagination, of pictures our mind is creating, again and again, with the most incredible refreshing rate anyone can ever imagine. We are all just functioning out of this conditioning. Many think: "I am, I am alive, I am the doer!" but most, if not all of us, are simple actors. Hardly anyone is really aware of him/herself!
We imagine something, as in a dream and go to imposter it. Believing that we are living and managing a life, in fact we are only the puppets of our imagination, driven by desire, want and projections of our mind.
"As is" I think often, if people ask me "Why?"
It's all out there, we only forgot how to listen and how to percieve the world around us. We are most of the time way too busy with ourselves. If we look at something, we tend to evaluate it, in one way or the other. Our mind is steadily at work. Does it fit in here, in there, in that folder, categorising things, according to their useability, or value.
While being busy doing this, we miss the most important part, life itself!
We human beings are quite some funny bunch, aren't we?
If I look around, it's like a giant melodramatic comedy show!
I think it's time for another Latte Macchiato!
