Have An Interesting Life...Naturally
"The truth is surrounded by everyone's point of view."_Michael Levy
by Michael Levy
Let me begin by asking you a question; “What ingredient is in every movie you have ever seen? Think about it for a few moments...Now, have you ever watched a movie that did not have some sort of conflict in it?
If you talk to any film script writer they will tell you conflict is a necessary ingredient in every movie. If this is the case, what makes it so imperative to include a controversy of some sort? I guess the answer must be that the viewing public demand it. If there is no conflict then the movie will seem flat and boring.
There is a curse that originated in ancient China. It is…“Have An Interesting Life”. You may think that is a strange curse, for don’t we all want to find life interesting. Why of course we do.
We have been trained to seek out interesting books, learn about interesting subjects and we continually seek something interesting to fill our attention span. Another word for interesting is intriguing, seeking out mysteries, finding out why things happen. If we just sit quietly for too long we will say ”Life Is boring”. Some people cannot sit still for thirty seconds without causing some type of rumpus or fidgeting action.
Let’s look at humans from the outside in. Imagine you are not human. You are an invisible alien reporter from a distant planet and you have been sent to earth observing human behavior from their origins. You are a centered being that never understood what a conflict was until you came to earth and you are now observing how conflicts begin. You start to analyze your findings and send the following report back to your home planet.
Human beings believe they are the dominant force on planet earth. However, many of them have become disconnected from the source of intelligence that is essential to preserve any life form. As we know, all life forms materialize into shapes and models and after a period of time return back to true intelligent, invisible energy.
Nature on earth is based on the survival of the fittest. This system is formulated so that it builds species that can adapt to climate changes. Also, many predators feed off different species so that they can flourish and multiply. Basic animals do not possess an intellect therefore they cannot reason and do not question their roles on earth. Even the weakest species enjoys its existence until it may be eaten by a stronger predator.
We understand that life for all universal nature is one of construction followed by destruction and the existence in the middle is meant to be a time of celebration and enjoyment, with no thought of worry, anxiety, hatred or any form of negative emotion. That factor is known by all species except one. The distorted human being. For this species has been led to believe they need to live an interesting life. Natural nature is not quite enough!
Hum...”Have an interesting Life”. It is my conclusion that humanity has been cursed with an intellect that firstly separates itself from the rest of all other existence in the universe and secondly separates itself into different social groups that live with dogmatic, self-serving views of life. No don't laugh, it is really very sad and what a waste of intelligence. It is a real conflict of interest with the rest of nature.
How will it all end? Well, I will be sticking around to find out and reporting back to you.
• What do you think? Has humanity lost its true direction?
• If so, what are your suggestions to make a human being more centered and balanced?
• Can the media help?
• Can your belief system help to unite all people as one, or is it dogmatically dictating…your way is the only way?
• Can science help to unite humanity by endorsing authentic meaning that may not have a mathematical connotation?
• Is it possible that one day we will be able to go to the movies and view a picture with no conflicts, but then again, who will be around to view it...only aliens on research projects? Or, a race of human beings reconnected to nature and the source of all intelligence?
