Sometimes some things come in our mind, sometimes we get it, sometimes not…

Irony

Image

What a daily irony we used to live: each day of our existence we approve this irony. Each power we increase with our consumption, each evolution, each progress, is just a new stone added at this chimerical edifice.

Which sort of humanity could exist in an injustice and a lack of positive human behaviour?

How could humans being a complex merge of pros and cons, a mix of meanness and generosity? How could the word “humanity” exist? How could we define it?

I would love to say that humanity is a society’s dream where kindness survives above everything. Humanity is just a statement. This expression describes a race. This expression draws a pathetic image of what we are supposed to be. The worst thing is that this expression is supposed to have a positive meaning.

I would love to hear, how it is positive to be a human. Is it a proof of humanity to give a glass of water to a slave? Is it positive to give some coins to a homeless and approving that our society let people dying under a bridge? What kind of “the quality of being human, benevolence” (definition of humanity) needs laws to remind its human’s rights?

I would love to hear from which concrete origin and example, humanity could be a synonym of compassion, consideration and tolerance. Specially would understand how that could be defined as “mercy”. Right and justice answer society needs that we could understand. But is a law always fair? And how could we call “justice” something which is not that fair when we consider the history of its creation?

Humanity, as human race, is the most unfair race. Humans created laws because they couldn’t handle their tendency to succumb to evil temptations.  Needing boundaries is the first proof of the lack of kindness that humans live with.

All of us. We all create a superficial world with blinders on, seeing what we want to face. We choose to think about how to organise our garden when some countries don’t have fertile soils. We choose to ignore the raped kid next door. We choose to forget our history which explains how humans had always to fight their dual being: always trying to find the balance between terror and order.

I would love to hear once, humanity assuming that humans are the worst race happening to nature. I would love to assume being a part of this worst thing. I would love to find, once, a way to apologise.

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words

That should not be a reason to forget about writing. As an echo of the previous articles, I wanted to find out the diverse points of view which are fighting. You can see all dark sides in something or someone. You can also focus on positive things as if you were blind when you faced obvious awful things.

The first impression we could have when we look at this picture, is seeing this amazing contrast between the wall and the door in the background. That contrast gives a special mood to this picture. We can imagine the wall weeping his pain: too many people missing the point of a forgotten history. We could feel these foot prints of all the people who passed this way, like if every day was a kind of torture. The home next door, an alcoholic husband threatens his wife. They forgot why they are in this situation, they forgot their passion and she doesn’t know exactly why she still living here. He also can’t explain why he’s so rude, always apologizing after and never thinking before. Otherwise, we can feel a hope in this light, like if we could hear some voices enhancing us to forget about this dark tube and focusing on one better aim. But maybe, this darkness could be a hope too. For people who are in trouble next this door, this darkness could mean the freedom.

Everything is about a “point of view”. We all are living in the same society with different points of view. And sometimes it could grounds some tensions. Sometimes that makes people happy to find a common thing. Here we just talk about some opposite things which connect or separate people. But that means a lot. Each worst or best part of something has pros and cons. It’s not only about a point of view, it’s just to say: two opposite things could be merged, and evolve in harmony. Opposite things could be complementary, like the Ying and Yang concept. That is why we used to work with different persons which could have an opposite personality but provide complementary skills. That is why we could be attracted by an opposite soul without any explanation of these feelings. That is why we can choose which point of view we want to get to feel comfortable in our respective lifes.
