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…
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.
