Concerning Conflicting Ideas of Your Mind and Their Destructiveness

By Anuj Chugh

'Why is my life so difficult?,' you may ask. Why were you overcome by folly and committed a grave error, made a wrong choice, failed to be on time at work, did that destructive act, caused by your impulsiveness at the moment? Why is life a flux of endless change? Why do you have to always remain as a victim of life, in some way or the other, despite what you do and what changes you incorporate and implement in your life, in yourself? Life bothers us all, no doubt about that. And it does more than anything else, because we have to go through it all. We have no other option. It's like, 'Do we have a choice?' No, sarcastically.

Some people have ended their lives by committing that one act of treason and butchery against themselves, i.e. suicide. Is suicide a solution? Obviously, no. It isn't? But they can't see the light of it, unfortunately, when they are overcome with deep despair, sadness, hopelessness, helplessness; at that damned moment, when making that damned move. For some insensitive people, other people who don't matter in their 'Great scheme of life,' are a 'help' in getting rid of the surplus population, as if they were paying the health bills and the medical bills of the deceased. In the modern world, in the modern age; people are insensitive, and people will be insensitive hence, expect them to be so, beforehand.

The life you have is your responsibility. People have descended the levels of selfishness and arrogance, but you must make sure that your life does not suffers the evils of other 'invisible men and women,' whom you cannot point at, directly and their names, you do not even know. All the nasty people in the world are a cause for stress, conflicting ideas and hypocrisy in your mind. The question which then remains, is only this - Will you imbibe the wrong, immoral ideas of our political brethren, and make them your role-models, in an act of involuntary submission to the status quo, by becoming 'helpless,' or will you be intelligent enough to fight the evil by living your life and moulding your character, your own way?

We unconsciously tend to imitate the behaviours of our superiors, seniors, our bosses in the workplace, starlets, 'heroes,' celebrities and people who have achieved a considerable fame. We simply adore them, consciously or unconsciously. We are bombarded by the media about the lifestyles of those we adore and the cars they drive. We see them everywhere, on the big screens, on the big banners and featuring in the endless stream of new movies produced every year. We are hypnotized and mesmerized, without our knowing. We have lost our individuality and we no longer know what we want to be, what is wrong, what is right, other than that which is portrayed on the television screen, right in front of our very own eyes.

We want to be the exploiters rather than the exploited cause we have become very sure that it is the only way the society works and 'the only way,' society could ever work. Though we complain about people who harass, rule and exploit as 'unjust and evil,' we secretly would want to be like them, if given a chance or when the right opportunity appears. This is how corruption works, this is how the whole system tends to get obsolete, become degraded and most importantly, this is how faith, the only real virtue, is destroyed. And we all know what happens when faith is destroyed, and the general consensus of the people is mistrust, anger and hatred.

It is all human nature. When we compete, we compete only to win. For a dog-eat-dog world to arise, there has to be a significant number of dogs already, in the system, to begin with. These dogs are our leaders, these 'dogs' become our leaders through our very own 'mass consent.' We all are consenting to it, we all are fine with it, we all are 'okay' with having all the wrong, criminal people in our midst, in our administration. We consent through our silence, because we don't have time for 'all this.' We have other important matters that require our immediate attention, we have to feed and fend for our own families rather than caring about the neighbours getting raped or killed!!
