Sense

can we find sense,
in a realm beyond sense ?

Love given, not received

While most of us lament there is not enough love around, that the world would be so much better a place if people loved each other more, I want to put out a point for discussion. That most of us actually find it much more difficult to accept love than to give it. We often do not even recognize love when it is given, and if we do, we fear it. The fear that it will be snatched away the moment we accept it. We spend our lives protecting ourselves from being loved.

Virginia tech Killings

Cho Seung-Hui, who killed 32 people on Campus, was apparently lonely, desperately looking for his individuality, burdened by anger against a society that he saw as antagonistic. Needed desperately to be noticed. To be touched. Living in a fantasy world in which his final act would be the supreme statement of his own existence. If this young man was in Iraq or Palestine, he would have been a suicide bomber and labeled simply as a Muslim terrorist. So while the world tries to understand why young Cho would commit such a tragic last act, I would ask the world to look at the young suicide bomber with the same analysis.

Piracy, China and Hollywood

So Hollywood and therefore the US is up in arms against Piracy of Hollywood movies in China, saying they are losing billions of dollars in revenue. What a white faced lie ! The fact is that 80% of the people that buy pirated copies of movies in China can either can not get to the theatres or just cannot afford either the ticket price, nor the price a fully priced DVD as per the US standard. They would just not see the film …

words

searching in the spaces
between our words,
speaking words
that have meaning

in a billion pieces
and then let God
put me together again

Global warming: from Ecosystem to Egosystem

What we as human beings have forgotten is that we evolved as an inherent part of the Ecosystem of nature. Over millions of years, and much more. A system that evolved with such intricate and delicate, almost invisible balances. The sheer artistry of nature is a wonder to behold in itself. Now we see ourselves as controllers of that ecosystem. We now, in our arrogance, have evolved ourselves as an Egosystem …….

Pope Benedict’s rallying call to Christians

According to the NY Times magazine, Pope Benedict’s ambition is to bring back Europe to it’s Catholic roots. His argument according to NY times is : “Secularism may be one of the great developments in history, but the secularism that holds sway in much of the West is flawed. The mistaken conviction that reason and faith are two distinct realms has weakened Europe and brought it to the verge of catastrophic collapse'”

Indian cricket debacle

So now the ex cricket captains of India have recommended that the Indian cricket players cut down their endorsements in order to improve the quality of their game. Hang on, Tiger Woods is the highest sports earner in the world, and I don’t see his game going down because of the money he earns through endorsements. Nor do I see the NBA player’s games go down simply because of the money they earn from endorsements. The problem with Indian cricket, if I may say, is the financial and political control exerted upon it by politicians that neither understand, nor are seriously interested in the game.

British Hostages or Prisoners of War ? What’s the keyword ?

Would love to know what is going on in the debriefing of the British hostages freed by Iran. What amazed me was how relaxed they all looked in the TV pictures during their captivity and as they met the Iranian president at their release. I am director enough to know that the relaxed atmosphere was not a put up job. It would take professional actors to fake it. So what was going on ?
