Yes, that's true.Unfortunately, there's a program which ensures our permanent downfall and that program lies embedded in our social consciousness. Our religion tells us we are sinners and brain washes us with absurd ideas of heaven and hell.The problem is that all the acts that we normally do as human entities are meant to be taking us to hell.
Our govt's and the big corporations operate in such a way so that we have a permanent Damocle's sword hanging over our necks.Unless we become their sidekicks, intelluctually dishonest to the core, we run the risk of losing our means of livelihood.
Then there's the mass media.It makes us believe that unless we have won an Olympic gold or a Nobel,or possess a movie star's good looks, or at least are able to fly first class, we are permanent losers and wasting our time on this planet.
In the face of such relentless propoganda and ruthless action, is it any wonder how many of us run the risk of losing our bearings.Infact, a monumental work running to 70 years,the Grant Study Project, about 268 Harvard graduates found that the majority of them had come to grief over these years. If this can happen to the best and the brightest among us, then there is something seriously wrong in how our societies are organized, and NOT with us.
Pl don't forget that we human entities are inherently so brilliant that OUR brain, the most complex supercomputer ever built, turns the food we eat into blood and runs this awesome machine called the body.As the poet Nazrul Islam had said, "है हमारी हस्ती ऐसी की मिट थी नही "
Pl examine this seriously. Honour and love the jewel that you are. And I don't mean the jealous, competitive and hysterical altered ego, but that power in is that runs our so complex bodies. Then we might begin to break the stranglehold of the vicious social program.
