When I said that even Buddha speaks from a limited perspective, a nice lady on Facebook persuaded me to think over Jesus as the only Way. That’s how people misunderstand me. What she didn’t understand that when I say even Buddha speaks from a limited perspective, I also mean that Jesus and other ‘enlightened’ beings also speak from their own limited perspective. Similarly, from Plato to Marx and to Gandhi, no matter how respected their position may be in the history, all of them speak from their limited perspective.
And I know that they knowingly speak from a limited perspective, coz they want to create a system. But, I’m not creating a system. Therefore, I do not follow any fixed pattern. Often I experiment. And often I make myself the object of experiment to experience things.
Whenever i find it suitable i take inspiration from all my predecessors, and whenever i think it necessary i also refute them. I experience the world. I try to see things as they’re. And I try to see things from different perspectives. And I also seek justice for all.
And by nature, I’m highly individualistic. In that sense I resemble more to Shiva, if you’d compare me to mythological figures. I try to see things with my third eye. You’d also find people like me among the romantic, beat and hippie poets. And also among the ‘mad’ people, although it might be debatable who’s really ‘mad’.
I’m trying to discover the root cause of human suffering of my times. Besides the lack of interpersonal skills and ignorance, the root causes of all unnecessary human suffering lie in the social systems based on false premises. Almost all the works in the history of mankind are based on false premises. And often social structures are intentionally based false premises – as an expression of power.
Not only that, most of the so-called intellectual works and theories prescribed by the modern knowledge industry are also based on false premises. And if you’ll base your systems and values on wrong foundations, you’ll never arrive at the right conclusions. And thus mankind goes through perpetual suffering.
Diagnosing the root cause of social and political maladies and finding the right cure is never an easy process. But, it’s an unavoidable & legitimate suffering that the society must go through. The society must go through the intense pain of self-reflection to accommodate the changes demanded by today’s increasingly technological and globalized world.
