Materialistic Vacuum

Posted: January 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

My cerebellum is experiencing a form of shortsightedness. The oracles that float past my mind don’t wait for further breakdown. Synapses will soon start sparking and giving life to ethereal thoughts. Yes, a life less mundane is a life worth living. Living is experiencing the fullness of our capabilities and the realization that happiness can be found in our supplied intelligence. Though not relevant to our joy, intelligence lays a foundation for deeper understanding of the physical universe- from the atom to the galaxy and everything in between. So what gives us joy? Simplicity does.
The simple song of life. Not power to control minds. Not money to afford mansions layered in marble and gold. Not infatuation with sports and work.  No, it is the simple strum of a guitar, an act of kindness towards a stranger, a hug, a warm breeze on a sunny day. For when no love exists from within, then a change starts to happen. The love is drawn out and a vacuum is created. Nothing can exist within a vacuum. So consequentley, the replacement of love and joy is filled with material things that we will always hunger and thirst for, yet the parched throat and hunger pangs will never go away. So why do we hunger for those things that will never satisfy us? It is because this world is an illusion. It is one big magic trick and we are all deceived. Our hearts long for spiritual joys and because of our shortsighted, gullible nature we are tricked into believing that we know what is best for us. We cannot seem to see past our insignificant short lives. All we see is what is in front of us and that which distracts our soul. We fail to empathize. An age old teaching says that all we have will turn to dust, unless we have love- that will endure forever. It is certainly true. The latest fashion among the coolest clothes, the pimped out car that everyone wants, the money in our bank account, the yacht in the harbor, the praise we receive from others, and the misplaced ego’s that make us superficial “succesful” people will all disappear. It will all turn to dirt and become worthless. Do not put your faith in material things for they are not real. They are an illusion that makes us think we are spiritually filled. But deep inside we are still empty of spiritual nutrients that make us healthy and acceptable before our Maker.
