Tropical forests

are where we evolved from and forests are fundamental to our physical and psychological well being. They’re being depleted ruthlessly by greedy corporations who partner with governments to produce sad stuff, to sell us sad stuff for profit so that we can buy it, get hooked on it– to be less sad? Don’t buy it–breakContinue reading “Tropical forests”

Book I’m not gonna read, sketch I’m not gonna draw

Something happens when I head to the east. Way more interested in soaking in the air, sounds, and sights; the honking of the cars, the hustling and bustling of people, random music, everything. Sitting on the rooftop watching people walk. Two years ago I went into a spell of whatever the f it was whenContinue reading “Book I’m not gonna read, sketch I’m not gonna draw”

Should you side with your friend at all times for the sake of trust and alliance, or correct them when you feel that they’re wrong and potentially risk the friendship?

Playful primates

Is this our definition of work? Not using hands… to grab things. To hold and to throw. To pick and to rub together with our fingers. To climb a tree, to use legs to clench and to use the upper body to lead through a branch. To swing from it and to land using ourContinue reading “Playful primates”

Nothinnn

You go through life doing a lot of things; School, work, relationships, Vacations, hearing neat speeches, Learning new skills, that get old Finding a niche Forming an opinion Feeling sad for others; getting annoyed by others Feeling attacked, developing a case to live Doing productive stuff while watching the clock tick When really, there’s nothingContinue reading “Nothinnn”

Hello from the future

It’s two hundred thousand years later And I think about you Where you roamed, what you saw, what you felt How you lived. I look at my hands, and notice that they’re so pristine. Yours must have been bruised, and maybe the lines that run across your palms were darker. Hello from the future. We’reContinue reading “Hello from the future”

IDEAL SOCIETY to make us all happier

(Opinions as of 2017/03/31) Underlying assumptions: All things organic/inorganic are important for existence in this current state of “reality” in some form or another, and thus are inherently good. Humans have something to offer to the planet, and the planet has something to offer to humans. Women are important and bring something to the table,Continue reading “IDEAL SOCIETY to make us all happier”

Death

There are numerous people who believe that death will end their miseries. Here’s a quote that points out an alternative perspective: “Don’t depend on death to liberate you from your imperfections. You are exactly the same after death as you were before. Nothing changes; you only give up the body. If you are a thief or a liar before death,Continue reading “Death”

The unromantic deal with romance

“Forever romance” with solely one person is really hard to live up to forever, although this type of exclusiveness is highly prized and romanticized in the arts and in modern societies. Due to our intelligent and curious nature, humans are instinctively promiscuous, polygamous, and serially monogamous. The peak of infatuation/attraction, where it sickens you toContinue reading “The unromantic deal with romance”

Power in femininity

There must be some type of strength in femininity that demands respect and alludes power– things typically seen “masculine.” We can acknowledge that giving birth to girls is less desirable than giving birth to boys in many cultures throughout the world. There’s issues with property rights, name, ownerships and so on. Even among primates, social groupsContinue reading “Power in femininity”

Dancing as a way of self-expression

It seems like the key to subliminal happiness is being honest with yourself and letting yourself express a wide range of emotions and curiosities in different forms– in arts, in reflection, in everyday talks. Even expressing sadness can make you inherently happy. Dancing just happens to be one of the mediums.

Magnetism everywhere

If you ever question whether it’s “right” or “wrong,” it’s probably “right.” Cut yourself some slack, the entire universe is made up of attracting forces. Attraction between the earth’s north and south poles keeps the earth spinning. The planets are attracted to the sun in a gravitational force that keeps it moving. The solar system isContinue reading “Magnetism everywhere”

Detachment?

Siddharth Gautam Buddha resisted attachment because everything will change. Things that can make you happy can also cause deep suffering. Money can wane People can leave Your physique can slack Why get attached to anything at all? Can resistance to attachment lead to some sort of everlasting bliss that we all deeply crave, but can’tContinue reading “Detachment?”

Not a busy woman

I can’t live a fast paced life. I don’t enjoy it– to do things routinely because it needs to be done, and that too in an expedited manner. Granted I prefer to do things, otherwise boredom would kill, but I’d do it slower, with breaks. Where I can smell the flowers once in a while,Continue reading “Not a busy woman”

Hanging out with a firefly

She’s so dull during the day, but comes alive at night. At times I don’t know what to do with her during the ever so long hours of the afternoon. She just hangs around my side; we don’t talk, barely have anything in common. I almost loose interest completely. It almost becomes a burden; theContinue reading “Hanging out with a firefly”
