We do not know who created the world, who created all those nature – the earth, mountains, rivers, fire, air, birds, animals and us – the homo sapient and more and more which we are still in the process of discovering..
But.. what kind of world have we created to live in?
We are definitely not the owner(s) of this world at all. We haven’t created it actually. But we have created so many rules and regulations and systems for education, money, food, etc, etc to live in this world which has actually complicated our lives very much!
Some times I just cant comprehend why a person cannot have his food just because he doesn’t have enough money. Forget about the delicious cooked meals and stuff, he cant even have the fruits or vegetables which were grown on their own. If we were living in the world without altering it, wouldn’t we all have what we want without this much fight?
We created money. We created barter systems. We created society. We created industries. We created so much that we also devised education systems for teaching to future generations about what we created. And, whatever we have created, in my opinion, has just led us to misery. What is the whole point of going to school, learning something and going to work and then earning some money to feed yourself. Why did we complicate it so much? Why cant somebody go and grab some food from tree or river or sea when they are hungry? It should have been as simple as that. I just understand why somebody should die our of poverty! Where exactly is this poverty? Is that person poor or our systems are poor?
When I saw the movie Shawshank Redemption, it was really saddening to know what the jails can do to people. Our law systems and jails and such have so much flaws that they can easily kill the hope/liveliness in an innocent person. In fact, again in my opinion, we should not do such a thing even for someone who committed a crime. What right do we have to destroy another fellow being’s mind? Destroying the hope/liveliness of a person is even more painful that killing him physically. What kind of system of living have we created?
Whatever we created, has taken complete control over our happiness. Our happiness is measured by how much money we possess, how much qualified we are and how big company we work with and so on. Shouldn’t we be happy all the time irrespective of such possessions? Shouldn’t the world be happiest place to live in for everyone?
At times it is so funny to think about our world and human beings in it. We human beings created boundaries and countries and such and not stopping with that, we have some rulers to dictate how we should live. And those rulers who can’t stop their reeling minds, attack other’s countries and they fight for something on which they have absolutely no control or understanding!!
Do you think we really need such systems for us to live in Earth? Do you think, we really have controlled or achieved what we wanted through our systems (be it law or education or whatever systems we created)?
What would be your ideal place to live in?
