The human kind has always had a darker side. A blotch in the soul fueled by violence, greed, jealousy, pride… and such. Our souls have long been contaminated. Perhaps, that’s why it stinks when we fart; it’s just the scent of our rotting spirit trapped inside a prison called ribcage. We all have moments when our evil deeds emerge… wanting just to be pure evil.
Well, good news!
There are ways to feed our dark side, be the evil incarnate and still get away with it even when we are caught.
1. Kill….. time with people you love. It really doesn’t matter what you do. Being together should suffice on its own…
2. Steal….. someone’s heart. Love is still the best medicine out there for our souls even if we do stupid things or it ends badly. Live for the experience.
3. Break all the rules….. of society. You are defined only by you and yourself only.
4. Lie….. on the meadows, watching clouds linger by slowly and spend time alone, just thinking. Sometimes, you only need yourself.
5. Hack…… life itself. Try to find easier and more convenient solutions for any problem you come accross.
6. Poach…… eggs in a frying pan. Nothing beats starting the day with a good breakfast.
7. Kidnap….. your own inner child and never let go until you die.
8. Bribe…. your loved ones with soft kisses and hugs as often as possible.
Soothe your demon…
There are about 7 billion people (if not more) dominating our planet with each of them having some uniqueness although we are not all that different. Each person has the same capacity to learn regardless of gender, age or race. It’s the conditions that we’re born into that defines our inclination and motivation to reach success easily. Provide the ultimate conditions to everyone equally than we will realize that we are more than alike. We are not sisters or brothers… we are the same – the pieces of a single, shattered entity: The fragments of a single soul.
Here are some points to back up my theory:
1. Think of drops of water and an ocean. Are the drops individual or is the ocean one? or are drops just fragments of the huge ocean?
2. We are stronger when we are together or act in numbers just like bees in a colony, working for their society. There’s always a hive queen among us that we dedicate our lives to even if we are not aware; sometimes in the form of a boss, a strong love interest or a common parent. They are the brain and we are the body, working to ensure its survival.
3. We seem like individuals but in reality we are highly social beings (even bragging requires at least one more person) Perhaps we are always longing for the missing fragments we got separated from.
4. Hatred is taught to us, just as love is. So, we all start life from the same point as newborns. We take different paths as we are taught in the process.
5. We all suffer the same, but show our pain differently as if some people got more emotions while others got more endurance and immunity towards such pain maybe because we were shattered into unequal pieces.
6. Even in language, the word “everyone” is singular despite it includes every single person.
Still not convinced?
Then, put the flora and the fauna into the mix and reconsider. Perhaps, we are just one big planet and we have tinier roles in existence.
Honestly, I wouldn’t bother reading a blog entry with a crappy title such as
“The benefits of hugging”.
It does sound lame but in our current world where we are constantly pushing people away, hiding behind an even lamer concept called “invasion of personal space”, it is to the point and such entries should be read. Especially if the author is a professional hugger.
I’m a hugger by nature and I actually think everyone is. Why do you think we have lengthy arms? To pick fruit from tall trees? Pandas can do that with their chubby limbs. Long arms are for hugging.
And the concept “invasion of personal space” is all wrong anyway. The word “invasion” suggests that the action is done by brute force. Hugging is never an act of violence. It’s combining souls, confronting, sharing and extreme bliss…
Now get up and hug someone.
