Multitasking my way to the new challenge, I think...
It is so easy to bring ourselves down. Sometimes I think we are wired to do so. A little scratch in our vinyl and that is it, everything that we have achieved or worked for no longer counts.
yes I say this from experience, this weekend has been specially philosophical in that department.
I might be a multitasking machine extraordinaire. I have worked hard at everything I have done and I have never compromised my feelings or my passion for work. However, that leaves me with not a long list of experience in one area only, but a lot of incredible experience in many.
How do I apply for a job now?
I have got to find me a creative solution to this one. Indeed I a do see an opportunity where there is difficulty but that does not mean the road is paved with silver (because I do not like gold)
Maybe I am saving myself some pain by not meeting the criteria for the corporate world. Deep down i am almost completely against them anyways, but truth is, I would not mind some stability for a while. For a while because I know, believe me I KNOW i will get bored.
So thank you Universe I guess, for saving me the failure. But something inside me in itching for a new experience, a new incredible challenge, and that might just be being a grown up and swim between the sea of corporate culture.
Now that i think about it, I actually think systems should be brought down from the inside…
This is the thing. I stepped out and worked my way to be a third party audience on a heated issue. I basically first totally disconnected myself from the issue and later when I no longer remembered why I was standing alone in the middle I spent quality time with both sides. saying equal time will be dumb, since I do not measure time anymore.
I heard, saw and read almost everything I could get my hands into from both sides. I asked questions, I challenged people and I demanded long explanations about statements and their origins, their roots.
I compared the same news headlines from different newspapers about the same event (I was of course shocked of how easy the news are bendable). I went out incognito, posing as “one of them” to listen to them when they feel full freedom of speech.
its been a while. I had to once more detach myself from both sides in order to give time to my conclusion to sink in my mind.
This is it.
We are creatures of groups. We get blindsided so easily that we are indeed capable of hating with all our hearts things we know nothing about. We love the sense of belonging other human beings give us. We like the team we belong to. It does not matter what the original idea was since it will evolve (or snowball effect) into a beast that people will give their life for.
Humans put labels on other human beings because they do not belong to their team. They will persecute them, isolate them, hate them and spread the message about them to everybody they can, making it even a family heritage issue.
Both sides are fundamentally wrong (granted, one actually has done a lot for a lot of people and its original idea is not hate related). They are wrong in the sense that they both lost their north, or better yet their south. THey no longer are an idea, they are a mass. instead of working together between them, they are hating together the other group. It is no longer possible to see any good in the other and therefore it is a tunnel of fighting.
How much energy and time people are willing to waste on collective hate? Look around you, its never ending.
Do you thing you could be able to spend some time understanding where the “group” you opose stands?
I think it will give us all a sense of perspective and humanity we have all lost in our own little way.
I belong here, pretty much standing between this. Not over or under anybody, not better, not worse, just opposing to let myself be dragged against my human sense of understanding.
