Do we “Spit in the wind,” when asked not to?
In previous thought shared with you, there was a kind invitation not “to spit in the wind” mentioning “Kapos” of the concentration camps in the terrible WWII to somehow awake one or two of us, not to participate in it. If yes, it would be a considerable achievement!
In the meantime, I heard one story concerning three nationalities and GOD. But it is not about nationalities. It is about us, human beings!
So the story conveyed to me by a friend goes that God came to the Earth and wanted to help three people in and around the Mediterranean. In one place, God spotted a person looking at his land with concerning feelings and asked him what is that he wants. He replied- please, God, please help me to master the production of Wine! God did it without hesitation, explaining to the man that making Wine, like all the other things in Life, needs patience. After some time, the men saw that the grapes were growing exceptionally good and he mastered the technique of making the best wines the world has.
God proceeded further and saw another man near the sea, with his eyes reflecting a desire he could not achieve. God asked him if there is anything he wants and the man with a humble smile said YES!
God, I humbly want to catch a vast, magnificent, big and tasty Swordfish!
God just made an affirmative move and left.
The next day the men caught an exceptional and never seen before giant Swordfish!
God continued to another place and was moved by the sorrow of the men sitting next to his dead donkey.
God asked the man if he wants his donkey revived?
The man saw God and disappointingly said NO! So, what is that you want, God asked?
I want the donkey of my neighbor to die too!
Do we still have that feeling to force someone who does not do what we did wanting to live life peacefully, to suffer because we decided to suffer?
Especially when we see and realize after that the decision we made was not based on long-term thoughts but very short-term conformism.
If yes, those that are following conformism should stop for their own long term sake! Stop and reflect and give it a time before deciding anything.
From one of many comments I read, I got a beautiful forty-year-old quote from one university professor shared with us by his ex-student: ” Trust absolutely nothing, unless you have absolutely doubted everything.”
That takes time, and what is needed is more time and patience and a clear mind, without any fear!
Instead of only the freedom of choice, there should be the freedom of doubt.
Doubts are cured by time and only time.
That is why whatever is based on fear with the insidious term used that “there is no time,” just stop, reflect and use your freedom of doubt!
I am sure that as people are getting back from the sleepwalk and starting to realize that the facts are different from reported or not reported by the mainstream media, those who are in the position to influence our lives will come with us! We do not need to be against someone or something to be in favour of something else. When all is based on free decidion, and clear genuine human feelings.
It is crucial to love our fellow human beings even though some do not want their donkey back but our donkey to die also.
Nature is here with us, and there is always a way to clean the body and soul from toxins. If you concentrate, find the method, and investigate, you will have someone, let’s call it the good fairy, that will contact you in many ways!
To use immortal Cronin:
“Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.
But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us.”
Never trade integrity for comfort, as Cronin left with us another quote: “A wise man enjoys in what little he has, while a fool asks for more.”
And from immortal Citadel novel of his which is highly recommended to youth, and not only, to read.
” If we go on trying to make out that everything’s wrong outside the profession and everything is right within, it means the death of scientific progress.”
That is definitely where the word sustain is coming to a play!
To sustain everything, including real scientific progress! That will mean…?
Many questions will come to your mind when you free it from the everyday mainstream fear-based news, and as many ideas will “ring the bell” to investigate further.
If these few words made their way to you, as Rick Blaine(Humphry Bogart) said in the Casablanca movie, I think that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!”
To finish with the ultimate goal for all of us if we lost it, hopefully for a while only, and it comes again from immortal Humphry-“Rick”- “With the whole world crumbling, we pick this time to fall in love,” without fear because THAT IS THE LIFE!
Fall in love, with no distancing, and no fear.
