Attitudes and Opinions


...the native lives in magic space where the directions front, back, left and right are not valid and consequently all orientation is impossible...

The words just below the title... Do they indicate a state of confusion...?

  Are you not confused when conventional directions are not valid?...

"Yes, it is indeed a state of confusion, when conventional directions are not valid"

...That would be a seemingly logical answer given by anyone who claims herself/himself to be in the right , sane and intelligent state of mind...But a further note is to be added to this....

Perhaps the magic space refers to a person who understands the "non absoluteness" of the directions. Each of those conventionally denoted directions are abstract. They only have a relative existence. Realizing this does take you to a plane in which the magic state of the native is not a confused state. Rather it is a point of absolute realization. Taking away the superlatives, maybe its just the beginning of absolute realization...

 This is does not only pertain to directions (again the language indicates that I am still a part of all those conventional directions from which I want to be freed). The directions are just metaphors, for...Every conventional rule given to you by the world is indeed a direction which tells you where to go, how to act and stay alive. But suppose you do not want to go that way. Its not just existence that you are worried about. You want to do things because you want them to, Not because it has been imbibed in you that you ought to do it...so much so that you do not even comprehend that you are not completely free...Your wanting has become what has been imbibed into you... Rules for "living"... Rules for "mating"... Rules for "dying"... Rules for "thinking"... Whatever happened to "Live and Let Die"???

 And when you do realize that here is where you stand, You start voicing opinions... People start getting back at you... In the conventional directions they have names for it... I dont even know what those names are and I think I shouldnt be even bothering about them (part of realizing)...

“They stick you with those names, those labels -- ‘rebel’ or whatever; whatever they like to use. Because they need a label; they need a name. They need something to put the price tag on the back of."...Johnny Depp

 Rather these Ideas should grow in secret... The change is to be implemented bit by bit... A sudden proclamation of your beliefs would end up in so much of antagonism which perhaps is too much to handle with the current strength that You have...

When you read backwards you come across the words "right, sane and intelligent state of  mind" ...Whatever that means... (the very reason that i have used those words itself indicates that i am not completely free)... Something and some behavior that works out right according to rules set down by others? ...Perhaps... I do not know and I am not sure... But all that I know is that I need to question every single thing that I come across... and question it with an intensity that is to be secretive... without tending towards paranoia (again that defensive coventional attitude)... 

I do know very well that all this is not practical  (...again here conventional directions..."look this way ...") and its a losing battle. But I love fighting for lost causes and it always gives me pleasure to look down upon and watch people belonging to the victorious side ( the conventional way of life and attitudes and beliefs...) staring and jeering at me content in their self-righteous and self consoling smiles....

................................Because at the end of all this "victory" is also not an absolute term................................

 “A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war.”...Jim Morrison
