Light up the Darkness

Now that I am kinda relaxed, I get to think of many things. (Paul Collier’s music really works :P). Its just that we have such a busy life that we don’t see the beauty of the world in plain sight. Every thing that is around us is beautiful in its own way. We pass by the same old tree everyday and think “Oh the same old tree” or don’t think of anything at all. But what if you were born yesterday and you get to see the world today? Everything is so beautiful. Even a log of wood. Overtime, we get too involved with our own lives that we do not think of the life around us.

Say you are huge, look at the moon, look at the stars, look at the sun
Look at the ocean and the desert and the mountains and the sky
Say I am just a speck of dust inside a giant’s eye
I am just a speck of dust inside a giant’s eye
Did you ever glance around to take a look at the life around you? Did you ever find trees speaking to you when you sit under it thinking you are all alone? Did you ever find yourself talking about the creatures that cannot speak? Did you ever think of what these creatures might say if they had a chance to speak? Did you ever glance behind to find yourself looking at a log of wood or a bird or a dog? Did you ever think of anything else than your own life? At least for a moment?Did you ever find beauty in the simplest of things? Did you ever do anything like speaking without uttering a word?
The world may be beautiful to you in many ways. But what’s important is that understanding between you and the life around you. You aren’t a stranger in an unknown land.Some try to separate human beings and animals. Well, I’d say Human Beings are just animals who can speak. There are many unknown things in this world of ours. But we need not try to find out the answer. We are so busy looking everywhere else for the answer when it is right in front of us. Everyone is capable of seeing the answer to every question unknown. Its just that only a few of them “want” to.
People are always looking for the “answers”.What is the question? Is it about the vastness of the Universe? Is it about the number of stars in the sky? Is it about what happens after we die? Is it about what we don’t see? Or is it something much simpler?
I’ll leave the answer to you. Maybe, some things are better left in the great unknown. Maybe we’re still living in a dark world. Maybe all we have to do is to Light up the Darkness. Maybe then, we can find out what is illuminated by the light.
