Watching them pass
    #4430680 - 07/21/05 12:09 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Tripping, and sitting in the midst of a very busy intersection in the city got me thinking about our lives. So many people are stuck running around all day, killing themselves with their obsession to work hard and work long. So many people can't just sit down and enjoy existence for a single moment. Even when they are not working, their mind is on their work; they never stop. In fact, seeing a person just sitting there on a bench makes them cringe in disgust or something.

I can't really explain the feeling I got but I just wish that we could all find some moments to slow down and simply exist, without the fear of losing your job, losing your wife, disappointing your parents, becoming a failure, etc.

Yep, it's really damn depressing. I often wish that I didn't live in this society because nearly everyone is convinced that they ARE their job. They've convinced themselves that their life is nothing but they're job, and for some reason they continue to live.

This is what I hate about this country's society.

Concern your self with yourself and allow others to fulfill or unfulfill their lives in the manner they choose.

Obsessing over other people's obsessions is not sitting down and enjoying existence either.

But I see where you are coming from.  :smile:

As a child, one of my favorite pastimes was bug-watching.
I would sit for hours near an anthill, observing their busy-ness, wondering what they were thinking. They seemed so self-important, so driven, so utterly absorbed in the tasks they set themselves to.
I wondered if they ever stood still, took in the beauty around them, felt satisfaction upon completion of their tasks. I never saw them pause, even when I placed obstacles in their path. They would quickly detour around it and resume their labors.

Humans remind me of ants.

It seems like we exist just to exist anymore. If we don't follow the same path as everyone else we will fall off the wagon and get left behind. We exist to work and pay taxes.
There are alot of people out there that work 2 jobs just to survive. Not to have extra fun money, but to be able to have a roof over their head and food in their belly. That isn't living.

I agree, sometimes I look at people and see how they've identified with their job to the degree that they are merely a conscious set of rules and infractions. They are conditioned, and it frankly makes me a bit paranoid.

I have lived on the outside of mental conditioning my whole life first through cutting school, then by journeying East, then through drug use, and finally through switching jobs alot, so consequently I merely am who I am, which though not much, is still pretty free of conditioning.

And sometimes I look into people's eyes and I sees bars and locked jail cells.  For me too if I act out. It's positively frightening.

That's our society. People more adherent to societies rules then to the spirit of life itself.  :eek:
