A mind of Human is a ruthlessly complex thing. It is paradoxical too and no matter how complex it may be and how much a mind may have achieved in terms of advancement and discoveries (generically speaking) it is easier to fool than ever before. We are more focused on one thing now. And most of our mind is occupied by that one thing which is, more often than not is our work. Someone is a good ‘IT’ person, may be best in that, someone is an accountant and maybe beyond those things they probably are least interested in anything else or do not get time. Whatever remaining of our attention then goes to immediate family and ourselves, in doing so it remains of no importance that we think about any other things other than our circle of interest. In a way we became workers of survival. Whatever we earn we love spending to calm our desires which are fueled by consumerism society. Effectively we work, entertain and retire to our homes and repeat the process until we live. How can we than be able to think of anything beyond ourselves. To think about place we live, ecology we are part of, to be able to think about future of a who is not at all related to us in any way. All those things may make us more than survivors, but a species who really lives. I while enjoying a beautiful sunset over a calm mountain top, feel so much gratitude towards those who did not killed that place and ‘I’ in the present get to feel the emotions and joy of being in that moment.
To not be a “Zombie” (figuratively) in today’s word we must try to give ourselves some time in a day. To observe what we think, not constantly feeding it with information or visuals but to sit still and to mind our mind. So that we can live & not just survives
