On February 11th 2011, I wrote this article as the introduction to my first book entitled “Lies & Illusions – Reasons or Excuses” and with the sub-title “Global Control Mechanisms”.
Today, and while watching the awesome atrocities committed in Syria by the Syrians among themselves, I felt the need to remind myself, and as well whomever may read the article, of the real nature of our temporary passage through this short life on that planet which God have designed for us.
Fatalism is fundamental in my faith. Ignorant and Irresponsible NO. For example, he who knows for certain that using airplanes for travel is fairly safe; and although he knows for sure that the factors for improvised and unexpected dangers in air travel are many, yet he frequently travels by air all the same; is considered a fatalist person for having decided to entrust his sorts to complete strangers by willingly laying them into the hands of a pilot, and his crew, though not knowing them in person, or their professional skills, nor how many service hours they have performed on that type of crafts.
On the other hand, let’s take a person, who have never driven a car in his life, in the eventuality of travelling on a bus where its driver contracted a sudden heart attack; well if that person takes the immediate spontaneous initiative and start driving the bus himself, putting in jeopardy the lives of the passengers as well as his own; then such a person is definitely both ‘Ignorant’ and ‘Irresponsible’, and no one can place him/her among the fatalist category.
Same applies to communities, societies, governments and nations. And I sincerely believe that the wisdom embracing the eternal and continuous act of creating life, lies within the boundaries of that concept. We were created different, in many aspects, one from the other; so that the friction, caused by the inevitable contact between our different experiences, propels our common existence towards a continuous process of renewed evolution.. Together..
Should we stop for a moment and observe carefully that infinitely wise variety of GOD’s creations, we would realise that the more we ‘discover’ and the more it seems that we ‘know’, the more we get shockingly ascertained that we ‘don’t know’. Also in the same instant at which we proudly conclude that ‘we are in control’, the astounding truthful fact that we’re in control of nothing returns to shake us, yet never awaken us from our everlasting hypnotising illusion: that ‘We’ are Superior.. But only ‘Some’ are ‘MORE’ superior!
Only “Human” specie is “Unscrupulously Vicious, Devious and Cruel”.. And definitely it’s not God’s fault, that We “chose” to be as such, because He granted us the most wonderful and miraculous brain by which we should be able to wisely “Think, Decide and Chose”.. No other creature was given such a perfect machine as precious free gift.
A well known genius like Albert Einstein once confirmed that: “… man only stupidly consumes his God given resources, and produces nothing but fæces”.
That’s why being, not only arrogant, but as well proudly ignorant and irresponsible, ‘Man’ stubbornly defied and conquered logic to the extent of worshiping his own insignificance, then he celebrated the coronation of his own minuscule self as a divinity, thus triggering the irrevocable chain of reactions for the unstoppable process of his own destruction.
Totally blinded by his Narcissism, modern man isn’t able to realise that such process has already begun several centuries ago, and is rapidly moving towards its only logical conclusion: “The End”!..
Only His Own..
Humans are not superior.. Not even to a drop of water.. And the faster we can understand that fact, the more probable that there could be the glimpse of a chance for a better existence.
Pass On The Word.
