Write to fill the void


Society is Python : Pixabay

The world is not rational. Everything happening around us cannot be explained logically. Humanism cannot be achieved by being a rational thinking man. The sufferings caused by poverty are illogical. The humanities are leisure, economics is survival. States are pawns in the hands of capitalist and make no efforts to fill the gap. Art and literature can fill the gap for bourgeois only. The upper and lower remain unaffected. Bourgeois to perpetuate intellectualism and elitism, which is characteristic of bourgeois class, create literature. If we know this fact we can set our emotions free and let the imagination go wild to bring the farfetched jewels hidden in the treasure of mysticism. Mysticism is an acknowledgement of the relationship between microcosm and macrocosm. The relationship has many dimensions and is unique to all individuals. No single theory can explain it. Nature works as catalyst and intermediary for the transience of microcosm. Nature is the key to understand both the forms of existence, gross and subtle. The art of observation is a skill. Dedication, humility and patience are required to acquire this skill. Once you understand that you do not ‘merely exists’ in this purposeless world, but your existence itself is the purpose of the world, creativity starts flowing. The flow begins consciously and reaches to unconsciousness. It is like dark matter, weakly interacting particles become high-energy randomly moving particles. It is a Big Bang of your sole existence. How much energy you can utilize for creativity is subjective.

You can utilize infinitely if you have a totally unconditioned mind. It is a very unachievable status. The bias and prejudices know many secret hidings in the mind and when we chase them one after another, they change their form and shapes and masquerade as identifiable but not distinguishable. At that level the distinction in friends and foes is obscure. Obscurity is a hindrance in the path of learning and elimination is many a times only an illusion. The clarity in perception in its purity is unexplainable. The language has its limitation. You cannot be perfect, but more near to truth, if you have better command of language. The palatability of your perception and its expression is not in stating that a spade is spade, but calling it by any other name than a spade and still your reader would know that you are talking about a spade. This is not possible with tamed imagination. The insistent pressures have disabled the natural function of the spring that leads to wilder imagination. To let loose, remove the pressures, one of which is very significant, the artificial way of life. It has become so integrated with the life that it appears to be a natural part of life. Useless things are making life complicated and have become indispensable. The whole process is cumbersome, but the results are beautiful. As an individual, as well as part of the universe that gives meaning to meaning to your life.At a point of time you surpass, the desire to be acknowledged and recognised for your contribution in the making of this world as a better place.

Never waste your efforts to wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep. Society is that python. It scares, even though it has no poison. Complacent and condescend. They like to be respected for their size and nuisance value. To ignore is disrespect. Neutrality is enmity. It needs a sugar coated prescription. Camouflaging is not cheating. Self-preservation is a creative art. If your concerns are genuine, you will find a way to hit the nail. Do not over do it. Just enough, to hold the things together. Do not exaggerate to make your point. Days of ridicule and satire are over. Didactic and reformative is hated more than the sinners are. The path is arduous but filling the void was never a smooth sailing.
