Erosion of Intelligence


We must open our eyes wide and keep our ears alert…

we must continue to see….

we must continue to hear…..

for there are tiny invisible graves everywhere…..

waiting to swallow bits of our brains

if we are not careful….

the jaws of the graves are open wide

waiting to bite and swallow our wisdom and intelligence…

Bury them, so deep that they will never rise…

Anytime you do not use your sixth sense….

A part of your brain is buried.

If you do not have an intelligent friend to remind you

It is dead permanently…..

It is hard to find a person who is intelligent and wise….

Sometimes we look for a person who will look us in the eye and

tell us the truth quietly

without hurting us……

Someone who chooses his or her words wisely……

We are running out of human beings…..

People who are honest and kind….

The ones who will say

“No we cannot do this, it is bad”, or “it is wrong”

If you want good advice from a wise person…..

Go to a person who is very advanced in age…

And never went to school

He will not speak from what he has seen on paper….

But from experience

He will speak slowly

in a low voice, pausing after a few words…..

Waiting for everything to sink in……

Greed has made us push the elderly away……

Wrong pieces of advice from our friends who are our age mates

have made us blind and deaf..

Look at our children

We have no time for them…..

The only time we put some sense into their heads is when they make us angry.

We shout and make faces

Pausing after a few sentences to say

“I’ll beat you”

Instead of the child listening to us….

He or she will be looking at the expression on our faces and movement of our lips…..

At the end of the scolding

What they call a ‘sermon’ these days

Nothing has stuck to the bored child’s brain…..

Saliva and a few brain cells are wasted here because

the child has not been told the long term consequences of his actions…

We drop them at their grandparents place….

and call every evening

to know if they almost died out of discipline…..

Yes intelligence and wisdom are now in the golden coffin……

Waiting to be lowered to the grave..

We are running out of honest, wise human beings

Insanity is setting in slowly

That is why we freely and comfortably say

‘Every man has a degree of madness’

A statement I never heard until my teens…..

Which is common these days

It is unfortunate we cannot close schools….

It is too late

I spend all my time quietly at home….

This has allowed me to observe and learn a lot of things…..

I see what most people don’t see.

I hear what most people don’t hear.

All the feelings I have are stronger now

My senses are sharper.

We say, an idle mind is a devils workshop…..

Before I decide to lie on my back and stare at the ceiling…..

I remind myself that…

That is the time to observe and learn…

I thought it would wear my brain out

But I read somewhere that a positively active brain….

Is a strong brain

‘You are what you think’

is not an understatement

But a fact….

So continue thinking money….

keep away from the human beings who don’t help you make money….

Keep quoting verses from the bible

Especially from the new testament

Thinking that you are the one that God chose to fulfil things like…

‘A brother will turn against brother

or Sister will turn against sister’


‘whoever has little, even the little he has will be taken away’

And never in your life has God called you….

Even in the middle of the night

Like he did Samuel….

To give you an assignment….

As you hold your Holy Book

look at the ways of the world….

Be cautious and alert….

And you will not be holding that tool called greed….

to dig a tiny grave to bury your intelligence and wisdom…..

We, the human beings

have refused to add

General knowledge to the library of our brains…..

We want everything easy…..

something about making quick money….

I am almost agreeing that in the end, the earth will burn….

Maybe many drunk people

will one night…

forget to switch off the gas

and the world will burn….

May be the sun will get too hot and we will all be roasted…..

Or many enthusiastic scientists will take drugs…..

to keep them awake

while they do their project

then out of fatigue mix the wrong chemicals and many explosions will make the world burn…

Who knows?

But what I know is

When the world ends

It will be because of one foolish act…

An intelligent and wise person is always compassionate, kind and honest that is why they are rare…..

What we give to the world is what we get back….

If you give good advice, you get good results….

There is no shortcut to a peaceful life…

That part of your brain that you do not want to wear out….

Will die and you will be walking dead in a short time…..

Nothing is easy….

Strive to be intelligently unique.
