U hali gani dunia leo? (how’s the world today?)
Hope y’all be doing great..swell..
Coz I’m not.
Yes, I count my blessings ‘one by one’ #flashback to singing that song back in my childhood, but just like you go to the toilet to take a dump, so must I take a few minutes to release my not-so-conformist views on this particular matter…
I promise to be quick…*fart*….NOT.
Now, just today I have ended up cutting and grazing myself 5 times today..two of which got kinda serious..
“Eh..so what? I aint no band aid.” You might be hissing to me over there. Didn’t ask for you help douche-bag…. I’ll bleed it out..
AAAAnyhu, it got me thinking, us Africans have that notion of whenever something bad, or a series of unfortunate events happen to one individual, traditional(and almost current and near-stereotypical) people say someone must be either be talking ill of you, or just mere gossip. I really don’t know who would have been gossiping or just thinking ill of me, I’d like to know, so I can forward you my invoice for the amount of Kleenex, Elastoplast, grabacin and cotton wool I have spent today, that includes you buy me a packet of glucose, I have lost a significant amount of my red liquid, and it should be replenished.
On the other hand, I’d also back the superstition with absent-mindedness, coupled with just sheer stupidity.
But it does beg the question why our forefathers and mothers used these to explain accidents, or just small incidents, there has always been a truth to it..to some extent.
Mother once told me of how her granny used to warn them of even thinking ill of somebody. Now granny was no Christian, but believed in a superior being, the law of attraction and the bitch called karma. that was enough to get her a staggering 108 years of blissful yet eventful, fulfilled life.
I think our ancestors, any of them from whichever part of the globe we live in were definitely wise when they came about realizing this, even before scientists had “discovered” it.
And that brings me to another point.. They knew it existed, without calculations and the like, through their faith.
Much more powerful than any weapon. Just as forever north will always be up, faith lasts. I have faith.. in God, in family, in my Country, and in myself.
But with all these information that wheezes by at every single lightning second, we sometimes falter in the faith we have in some things. And this new information isn’t bad.. hell, it’s the human being’s first rule of existence and survival.. Wanting to know more, and proving it.
Here’s the difference; the information out there retrieved has been done by people, like you and me who question the facts, rule out rumours and prove the real, sometimes surreal.
And when presented to you, you just take it all in.
You don’t question it…at times you do.
and when you do, but you don’t quite agree, you dismiss it.
why haven’t you tried reasoning the fact? the world is round galileo said. The church said that’s impossible! The church had dismissed the fact without even trying to prove he was wrong.
And that’s the thing, if it is wrong, go to all lengths to settle your mind on whether he/she who brought up the fact is wrong or right.
Don’t just simply dismiss it, because they did what they had to do,experiments, tests, studies for years and decades, probably whole of their lives, others never lived to see their theories proven… and eventually they got their conclusion!
So, do you follow facts because they make sense to you, or do you simply make like a leech and “suck it all in”
All I’m saying is, there’s soooo much info out there, try and filter out. dont be a robot and have a preset, because humans have never been and never will be crafted that way.
Peace to all of you.
