Insane: Mentally ill. Deranged disturbed. Immoderate wild: insane jealousy. Very foolish absurd:
How do we stop the insanity in our world? There are so many level of this insanity that I speak of, from the most brutal, to the mundanely mindlessness of humanity willful blindness, or just an utter ignorance of there reality.
Do we have a magic bullet that can prevent such ignorance, or willfull blindness in the world today, no not yet, but maybe one day science will come up with a prossess of opening the eyes of our brainwashed minds, and in essents freeing us from our own insane self imposed prisons.
“The sublime and the ridiculous are so often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately, one step above the sublime makes the ridiculous, and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime again.”
The above quote that I found some place is so true, and I love it so very much because of its simplistic understanding of a complex issue made so basic in its understanding. We are able to use this same logic to really see just how fine of a line it is between insanity, and reality.
It would be an easy thing for me to just give up in the face of these insurmountable odds of trying to explain to humanity that they are acting insane, my own mindless act of insanity, or is it insanity to even think I could make a change in the way people interact with one another.
What matters to me is that I never give up on anyone because if I do then I am giving up on my own humanity, clarity, and understanding of reality, and I will inevitably fall back in to my own insanity.
I wish I could say I was 100% enlightened, but I am not. I still find myself failing to let go of my insanity completely because I am ignorant to really understand of how to fully move on to enlightenment.
It almost seems to be the impossible dream, being able to step out of myself into a sublime oneness with the universe. It is hard work at times to not allow yourself to slip back into the mindless, and mind numbing, way of life that once was me.
The good new is we all have a choice, and the power to live in the full understanding, and fillment of the universe, or oblivion. The choice is 100% ours, so what makes more sense, giving life, or taking life, hating, or loving, living, or dying.
I have just made the choice of life, and in such a short time I can feel a real change in who I am, and my purpose for being. But I also find I have to be vigilante to always push forward into the understanding, and take nothing for granted, and always live everyday like it is my last blessed day on this earth.
A quote, from one of my favorite books, THE ALCHEMIST.
“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer, the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky. Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”
