The most precious, necessary luxuries of life are often the most desirable things that man can not seemingly do without. Time. Wealth. Sustenance. Enrichment. Knowledge. Recreation. Entertainment. Adornment. Love. Companionship. Intimacy. Power. Freedom. Independence. Tranquility. These things motivate us, and at times dominate our passions, or define who and what we are. And, since we are prone to errors due to our many, many flaws, we are often easily distracted by our uncontrollable desire(s) for the “here and now” to obtain such fulfillment from these things in the reality that we know. At times we abandon our morals, values, ethics and religion for the immense pleasures of emotions (and/or overwhelming physical titillation) that stem from the immediate gratification of the “here and now“, our distorted reality. These failures and faults which challenge us are indeed unfortunate, but they (hopefully) are not permanent nor leave excessive damage to which we cannot recover from. After all, nothing is permanent in this temporary and (at times) ordinary life. Neither the good or bad. Neither the right or wrong. Neither the bitter or sweet. And, it is in knowing, understanding, and accepting these things that kindles our hopes and faith for that which is better, more rewarding, and more beneficial. With this, we move forward in our continuous, aspiring pursuit(s) for fulfillment, peace of mind, and happiness. While working tirelessly to obtain what seems as though is thee most unobtainable thing(s) imaginable, we must remember why we are working so diligently. To appreciate that, is to show gratitude in realizing and knowing the true essence and worth/value of our world and those desirable things that are neither extreme or impermissible (which in turn makes life easier).
It is this gratitude that should be reflective in our intentions, attitudes, behaviors, and actions. Even if we tried to hide, disguise, or conceal these things, they should still be very apparent through (our) manifestations. And, it is in our striving forward that we should want for others what we would indeed want for ourselves in those necessary luxuries (and/or better). To not want those things for others would almost seem inhumane. Who would want someone to be without? Who would want to see another human being suffer? We all want the same things. What is in question is their order of priority and, how do we go about to obtain such things? The privileged and most fortunate amongst us are obviously in better position. While the disadvantaged and impoverished seem to be not in good favor. Can there exist a common ground? Is it (at all) possible for all of us to be on the same level? This is amongst the most difficult of things to balance between those necessary luxuries, and to enjoy the rewards and benefits from such things while sharing with others. This struggle for balance becomes so burdensome at times for (some of) the privileged and well off , they “mortgage” their own souls to control the “here and now” which they then oppress and dictate the freedoms over both the fortunate and unfortunate. We are then enslaved by corruption, envy, malice, arrogance, pride, lust, greed, vanity, and overly romanticized ideas of what constitutes freedoms and life. These things eventually become part of our views, attitudes, and “moral standards” (i.e. reasoning, purpose, justification for widening the division between race, class, and gender) for which we judge others, while (also) using to evaluate and assess our own self worth. The oppression that dictates these things eventually become the way of life, the norm. Deception of perception is then used in “micromanaging” (or scrutinizing) the code of ethics (we once knew) and economic status (we are now introduced to) which controls every part of our lives. We are then invited to the commemoration of this new way of life each and every moment of our existence through admiration, adoration, and praising of ourselves and those like us.
In order for us to regain control of the world/reality we once knew, we must let go of those (possessions, properties,”rulers”) that control us. This is not a surrender, or submission. Instead, this is a release from a reality that was created to deceive people into thinking they were doing such things for fulfillment, peace of mind, and happiness. We (must) then revolt by brining back the morals, values, standards, and ethics (for which we evaluate and assess our lives, our mode of living) back into existence. We must remember back to when we gave these things up for the uncontrollable desire(s) for the “here and now”. We must remember back as to why we wanted these things. It was simply for the immediate gratification for such an immense rush of fulfilling pleasures within our emotions (and physical being). Society once understood, accepted, and knew this to be true. People were then made aware of such things, and were content with utilizing those necessary luxuries to make our lives easier, without complicating our overall goals for fulfillment, peace of mind, and happiness. People also realized the gratifying feeling in knowing these things were only a means to an end. After all, nothing is permanent. Everything has its appointed time and life cycle. Again, we recall this and expose it for those who have forgotten as we have. The oppressors and dictators only sought to rule over us because we had aspirations for all to know and enjoy what we were privileged to experience. And now, they fall back and regroup to regain their strength and leverage for a counter attack?
Once again, a revolution begins without warning.
