Procreation and Conditioning

The world is getting overpopulated. Living in India I can feel it. So much competition everywhere, for college admissions, private as well as government job openings. People love to procreate. For men it is the most manly thing they do. For women it is the longing feeling they want to experience to have a life. They (parents) nurture this life and feed enormous information about their culture, faith and environment into these kids. But the problem starts when these parents start feeding their incomplete and wrong knowledge about other religions or their stereotypical notions about the world to their kins. In other words all the crap and waste is dumped into the pure minds from their forefathers. And this is endless cycle, it will continue from one generation to other. And surprisingly the story may change and take some other twists on the go, thus creating misunderstandings.

In the country like India which is a multicultural society, these misunderstandings can take a bloody and dirty turns. Why we are having these baseless notions and transferring it to our pure minds? We are conditioning their minds, not only in homes but in schools, in televisions, everywhere. Like a terrorist is conditioned and made to believe wrong notions against the whole communities when only very few are the culprits ( especially government’s policies and temperament, for example in Kashmir and Punjab). For instance, we in India are made to believe that Pakistan is our enemy. It is our perspectives and thoughts which doesn’t have credibility. And these are passed on to our children, who become judgemental, stereotypes and hypocrites. Their creativity is destroyed in schools. The devilish teachers (most of them) inculcates and instills fear into the young minds. This conditioning is so strong, that becomes the very base or foundation of their lives. And as usual, follows a cycle, passed on to their kids.

The Philosopher is killed!

In today’s world, people are becoming more materialistic, social media enthusiasts. They are busy in their tiring works and if not busy, then focused in talking with others or engaged in social media tools. In all this, so called ‘busy life’ they have left out one person behind and haven’t talked to it from a long time. That person is the inner self. So, the philosopher, the one’s self  is dead and no more existing in our lives. Because of lack of this philosopher, we are losing self realization, morality, righteousness and empathy. It is in those lone times when a philosopher becomes alive and talks in some sense into our materialistic self. But we don’t have this lone time per say.

We are losing the basic humanity in our daily lives. Yes, we are talking so much and are socially super active but not talking to this philosopher, we are losing that basic essence of life. We are losing attributes like honesty, truthfulness, etc. as the source of these qualities lie within our conscience. The philosopher is dead and with it every single attribute which makes us human and are actions are becoming inhuman and conscienceless. We have many close friends today but we have lost a very old and selfless friend, that philosopher.

So, the question is how we can regain this philosopher back into our lives? Simple, we need to feed talks to it. We need to lend our ear to it. We need to have a strong and healthy alone time. To have that precious lone time is must for us. We have to get back that lone time from our busy life. Because if we get it back, we can become human again, we can become a life again.

Why I don’t talk much?

I have seen people who are magicians with words. They play around with words, they can persuade anyone and they can impress people with their conversationalist power. They boast with confidence while communicating with small or large group of people. But being an introvert, there is a lack of interest in me, of speaking all the time. It has several reasons. But most highlighting are the following:

Speaking comes from inside: The more you think, the more you talk to your inner self i.e. thinking aloud and intense. The conversation is spectacular but without words. This kind of conversations can be recreated in the outside world very rarely with people. There seems to be no motive in speaking sometimes to someone. The speaking or conversation begins after taking consent from the inner world. And when this permission is denied, sorry, no interest or intention to stretch the conversations or even initiate most of the time.

Conversation topics are deep: People don’t want to go deeper in the conversation. That promotes superficiality i.e. on the surface. We, introverts don’t like superficial talks. We want to dig the surface and go deep inside the conversations. Unfortunately, no one wants to dive deep into those topics. We have selective topics, which are mostly not liked by the people. So, we don’t open are mouths in such gatherings.

Intellectual Talking: Our mind and soul prosper and grow, including intellect into our conversations. We won’t settle for less. We need to have healthy, intellectual talking. We won’t subdue in front of downgraded conversations. We cannot immerse in such talking, which destroys our self dignity, self respect. Intellectual conversations makes us grow, gives more satisfaction post conversations.

Cannot talk for the sake of talking:  Some people just talk for the urge of talking. They don’t have motive, or any considerations for the other person. They want to talk about themselves. The talking between strangers met in a bus or train could be an instance. People try to initiate conversation to pass their long journey. I like to sit on window seat and look out for the green fields and different structures, houses. I can look endlessly outside and think a lot based on my observations.

Don’t want to open up:  Once you open up with people, they try to take you for granted all the time. That is the thing I hate a lot. I have mood swings. I will not be interested in talking to you in the morning, because of some work which I need to complete. And in the evening I will be ready to go with you on tea and talk about fun things. But really trusting people, that they will not take advantage of our opening up, is tough. Because I cannot be the same person every time.

Disinterest of people: And finally, people don’t want to listen, but talk. There is a lack of good listening skills in people. They take talking as some kind of competition. They want to dominate you and your thinking by giving talks. They will cut you over while you are presenting some words of your own. This happened to me when I was a kid. And this is one of the big reason I don’t want to speak, when nobody gives a damn.
