We live in a time of people’s over occupation with the external things. What is seen on the outer surface is all there is. We have stopped looking in the inside. We have stopped searching for deep things.
We have preferred cheap toys that are readily available everywhere in the market over the treasures of the deep.
Like children’s eyes, lost among the colorful playthings in the market, we are now lost.
We have stopped thinking, we have stopped asking questions. There is no time even to ask ‘why am I doing whatever I am doing ‘. We have become like a mouse trapped inside a wheel … the race does not end and the destination never arrives.
In the pretext of day-to-day busyness, we have suppressed the deep questions of life we have always had – Who am I … Where did I come from … Why am I here … Where am I going?
We have become just like any other animal – limited to only responding to hunger, sleep, pain or pleasure – just existing.
Now the time has come for us to pause and reflect. It’s time to take a long breath and face our own silence. It’s time to go to a distance and be the spectators of our own lives.
