Greetings dear reader. Why I have chosen this forum to represent my views is due I feel the people here are open to my thoughts. In some places across
the Internet I feel much cynical thoughts, lack of faith and openess to the wonders that could make us feel better about ourselves. (I'm not sure why
spreading beautiful thoughts is today something strange).
Let me tell bit about myself. I think it is good to know bit about each other. I'm a peace loving man and I have great respect for humanity. I have
large endearment towards children and animals, as I feel they are not responsible of what condition our world is today in. What I'm here to tell you
is a story. It's a story of many stories in Internet, and you have the right to believe me or not. I won't get offended whichever you choose.
Let me begin.
Last autumn I went to Africa. I went as tourist and what I saw made me aware of the inequity of us humans. If you are reading this at the dim light of
your computer, in safe and clean home, my friend thank God for it and be satisfied that you have such privelage. This time the lottery went your way,
my friend. I saw abandoned children, I saw powerty, I saw people with no electricity or running water, spending their day getting it from the well far
away. They gave us their best, meaning rice, which they themselves could eat maybe once a year. Because we were tourists. And think about it: they
themselves were happy about few tens of dollars, which we spend on vanity when we feel bored.
Part of my trip was going up Kilimanjaro, which is per Wikipedia one of the sacred mountains. Going up an sacred mountain has certain purpose. For
me, it was seeking englightement and I had my share of thoughts and visions which had deep impact on my life. My intention is not to brag about my
travels, or come across as home grown prophet. Those are none of things I wish to represent. What I want to tell is just to share this story with you,
for your enjoyment and reading pleasure. (This I keep repeating because I know, no matter if you want to believe me or not, your ingrown scepticism is
eating inside every word that you read. Don't worry - we are like that today and it is not you).
Going up the mountain, I began to understand the deep flaws of our humanity. I understood we do many wrong things due our ignorance and because we aim
our toughts to ourselves. We plan not to be evil, but we have limitations on how to be good. We yearn for personal glory, seek for entertainment
because we do not understand that it comes with a price. I saw tourist groups chasing animals with jeeps, as they wanted animals to "do something".
For them animals being animals was not enough and it made me sad. I felt deep compassion for the animals and could not understand why they would want
a thing like that. I felt for people of the earth, and it made me sad to think what we have become. There is light, but there is also lot of things
that aren't good. If you watch today's news and what is going on globally, you know what I am referring to. Those things should be left alone, as
they are as they are.
When we progressed towards the very top, and I grew more tired, I began to talk about how all of this sherade has had enough of its time. I was upset
and angry, but understand now that being angry to each other is not the answer. What I felt that in the world there is plenty of evil that wants us to
separate, when we should unite as people. We should stop thinking of ourselves as citizens of nations, and see us as global citizens of humanity. Be
open, be curious, never neglect our inner capabilities and what our minds can create. We should do everything possible to go away from hate, and try
to spread love in our daily doings. That way our beautiful planet can move to something greater that one day we will see.
When you plant a seed, it grows. That is how seeds become beatiful forests.
