God Save the People!!!!

Starting my first ever blog about the state of our minds in today’s world is probably not a good idea. But this is something that I have been thinking about in these past couple of days and it bothers me. Bothers probably is too small an expression for the way I feel about it. Saddens or scares would be more like it. We live in a world of abundance. Abundant knowledge, abundant education, lots of money, no dearth of something to entertain us. We are constantly “Connected to the world”, through social networking websites and phones that we carry around in our pockets. And still we’re empty. Probably far emptier than our previous generations. And I cant help but wonder why that is..

My parents for example are happy people. They have been working at the same place for more than 25 years and still it never occurs to them that maybe they should look for something else, something better, something fun. And all my friends, whether they’re working or studying or doing nothing  feel that their lives are empty, that they need to find that thing that is missing. And so do I. I have been working for just about 9 months and I wanna do something better already. What, that I do not have an answer for. I have been trying to find it but I doubt anyone ever does. I think the art of living is in finding a way around this emptiness, living life always believing that this is the best thing that could happen to you.

More important, I think, than finding the aim of one’s life is finding one’s way around people. It’s probably all in the mind. All in the way you think. And I’ve been trying to alter that. I think all our problems, at least the ones that arise due to “relationships” or human contact, could be solved if we could just talk it out. I have a lot of friends out there who were, once upon a time, some of the most important people in my lives. And today they don’t matter. And i don’t matter to them. That’s just how life goes, I know, but its heartbreaking. If only I had the guts to talk it out with them and sort the things out, we would probably be happy being friends again. But that’s just not how we humans are made. We’re egotistical, we’re snobs, we’re moody, we’re under the illusion that we’re happy by ourselves but we’re not, we’re too proud to accept the fact that we love certain people. We’re not happy without those people around us who love us and who we love. So all we need to do is keep that tiny voice inside us that tells us not to do certain things aside and extend a hand. To the people we love, for the people we love. And most importantly, for ourselves. For being happy. For being contented on one aspect of life at least. And I know that’s possible. More than know, I wanna believe that. And I want you to believe the same. Let’s make this world  a better place, not for the sake of nature or earth or even for humanity. But for us. Because all we want to do in this world is be happy, isn’t it???
