The first step when I try to improve any thing, is to know where I stand. So, we will try to get a better understanding for the current state we are in.
Actually, we can go one step further 🙂
Before my existence, there were nothing to know, feel, improve. There were just nothing. Back then, I had nothing to choose or try. I mean I didn’t choose my parents. I didn’t choose my birth place. I didn’t choose my language.
A lot of things that change a lot of things about myself and yourself weren’t actually my choice, nor yours.
That is the step before the first step 🙂
Now, Let's move to the first step
Sadly, we don’t have a lot of choices in this step too. Capability of making a choice comes later 🙂
After I was born, I got faced with the tradition of the people living in my birth place. We all are faced with that. Our parents and family members do their best trying to put their ideals in our brain. Actually, if they could do it physically by opening our skull and pouring their life philosophy in our philosophical depraved brains, they would.
Folks, I was born few minutes ago and you are trying to do your religious traditions on me. Come on, folks. Give me a break. I am literally trying to grasp a breath here.
Since, I was not able of talking back then. They never heard and they kept doing it regardless of the difficulties I am having breathing. These folks might also get in arguments about what they should pour in my little brain. And, I am screaming ” cool down folks, I will give everybody the chance to pour something of his brilliant thoughts. Just let me focus on breathing for the time being”
But, as you know my buddy, I was having tough time breathing. Hence, the talking.
That is how most of our families try to do for their lovely new kid. And that is from the bottom of their heart for my sake. They want me to grow up a sane man and a good person. Just like themselves.
The truth about first moments
After my delivery on this charming blue-green planet and joyful life in lovely neighborhood. Every one will see me as a vessel to his amazing thoughts about life. Everybody is philosopher. Myself included 🙂
We all can some how talk about what is right and wrong in the work of the most famous philosopher. Of course this apply to all of the people in my neighborhood. Every one will do his best to teach me some thing.
And I am still an empty vessel. So, I am trying to fill my brain with their data. The switch here is a little different. I didn’t just fill my brain with everything I was told. That’s not how our brains work.
Our brain want to see the thoughts in action. Our brain will choose the thought that gives a win. Let’s elaborate that.
In a violent society, Our brain will get used to violence and see it as a winner. And the more violent you can be, the more wins you will get. That’s when I remember the peaceful guy in my violent society who was trying to teach me his peaceful thoughts. But, he was always getting kicked in the aaaas 🙂 There is no peace her old man.
This is not only about violence and peace. It is about every thing. This is about everything in my neighborhood.
It is about my neighborhood religion, tradition, language, clothes, hair style, marriage system, education, sex, love. It is really about everything. And every neighborhood has his own way of these things. My neighborhood doesn’t have the truth, he has a way of living which is different than your neighborhood way of living and we both are consisting on proofing the righteousness, integrity and profound understanding of our neighborhoods.
Now, The outcome
What we have discussed earlier will result in the current state of every one. It will shape our thoughts, religion, traditions, love, respect, and every other thing.
Every thing we came across since the moment of birth will shape every thing about myself and yours. And we didn’t choose most if not all of it.
Now, we have a choice and we can choose for ourselves. However, you might be convinced. And that’s when you and me should search the web for people with most bizarre tradition and they think life can’t go on without it.
Actually, I will search for a video with bizarre communities here for us to be sure that birth place and neighborhood can have astonishing effect on our personalities and life philosophy.
I am just trying to say that our personalities and life philosophy are products of our birth place and social beliefs. Our personality is not actually ours 🙂 And most of arguments we get in, we are defends the opinion of our society, NOT OUR OPINION.
So, we MUST start shaping our opinions ourselves.
Till next time 🙂
