Misunderstanding one of the main issue faced by many because of complex thinking or silly presumptions. Things kept simple seems complicated than before because of the demand on “out-of-the-box’ thinking. Why is it so hard to keep things simple? Why is it hard to be happy with simple things in life? Society expectations? Is it? Well, that’s really sad. When you know expectation is your greatest enemy, why do you still entertain it? Is it an unwanted guest? Is it an unavoidable important person? Why is it given so much importance? Do we feel that we don’t fit in this society? Why do we face this? Is it because of the judgmental society or is it our own expectation that we are trying to reach? Is there any competition you feel you need to win? Is it all real? What I found that is working is the principle called ‘survival of the fittest’. Are we living or surviving? Is it sad that we are surviving or sad that we are not living? Sometimes, for some, surviving would be living in their eyes. And for some, living is the survival. How do we see this? With what distortion lenses should we see this? Optimism is positivity or is it a survival trick to see survival as living? What is it? Is pessimism a survival trick to see the show the possible danger? Why do people call it bad? Seeing the danger is a bad thing? Isn’t it survival? Unrealistic optimism is where we falter. Unwanted pessimism is the place where we falter. Why is it kept so complicated? Why should we complicate things like these? Why do we have to rectify other’s opinion when it’s none of our business? Why do people have to worry about unnecessary? What is the point in knowing when you can’t change it (lyrics from ‘to be human by Sia). When the mind is constantly asking for information and then cries because of overload of information and mixing the information and processing a wrong output and delivering a wrong message? What bug in the mind is the problem? What thoughts are slowing our progress? What thoughts are elevating us? What thoughts are destroying us? What thoughts are destroying the ideas that are born? What thoughts kill the brilliant idea that could help oneself and others? These thoughts are survival mechanism to help us. But what have we done to it? Complicate it? Reading this would make us think why is everything written here is complicated, but that’s the reality. What we are we are doing is complicating it. Do you think that emotions complicate things? If there were no emotions then everything would have been on simple mechanism ‘survival=living’.
Our emotions play a role in living. We judge whether we are living or surviving based on tour emotions and not on the things that we have. Each one has different level of satisfaction. We feel happy when we have a beautiful house decorated according to our expectation. Once accomplished it becomes ‘we are living’ factor. Did you notice what all are involved in this living? Emotions, expectations and things. How are these getting connected so well? One imbalance leads to a judgment that we are not living. Is it silly? Is it true? Isn’t it how it’s been working?
So what’s complicated? What is going on? Should we think about it and get back to work? Or should we contemplate and start over thinking on it and complicate it? Or should we contemplate and devise a better way to live or just chuck this and move on with what we are doing?
Just my thoughts while working…
