A Mundane Existance

Most of the people in the industrial world are so taken up by their aim to gain as much money as possible and to get the highest position they can get, so that others can lookup to them, that they forget to enjoy life and to make something worthwhile living for.

.

They forget that of all the material treasures they collect on this earth in this life, they can not do take anything with them in their grave or can not do anything with it in their death. Once we die it shall all be finished, and we shall not be able to hear or see anything, and we shall not be able to do anything any more. Life will be gone out of us; No breath any more. Just a deteriorating body to become dust again. That is what shall left over of us, in the end, some ashes or dust and perhaps some memories in the heads of others.

.

So many people loose so much time trying to get somewhere instead of making the best out of their life and to make the best of the life of those around them.
Instead of making full use of what we do have in ourselves we try to compare with others, sometimes envying them instead of being happy with what we do have in ourselves.

Therefore, let us tackle ourselves with that what is given unto us, and be happy to use all are given elements and power, to make ourselves and those around us happy souls (happy beings).

    To walk the common line / Of integrity, not swerve,  / Is to tarnish not the shine / Of what we must preserve.

    “And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

  • Thoughts On Living Right (sassoon18.wordpress.com)
    To treasure and to hold

    Life’s precious gifts; try

    To cheer the sick and old,

    The downcast, by and by,

    Is to light the torch of love

    And heartfelt amity,

    Rising beyond, above

    Life’s stark mundanity.

  • Exploration of the Mundane (slangaga.wordpress.com)
    Life shouldn’t be compliant.
    Life shouldn’t be waiting for your next vacation,
    or forgetting what it feels like to laugh so hard you hurt.
    We are on a continuing adventure, forever exploring.
    Maybe there are times when all we can do is explore the objects surrounding us.
    Of course there will be times when the adventure has seemed to be replaced by routine,
    by the inevitable.
    But that shouldn’t keep us from exploring.
    Even the mind we own has such an unfathomable depth of information.
    Why should we take that for granted?

  • Early Medical Retirement for Disabled Federal Workers: Joy of the Mundane, Though We Knew It Not (federaldisabilityretirement.wordpress.com)
    we tend to consider joy in terms of momentary elation, an extended period of satisfaction, or a sense of quietude wrapped in layers of giggling quivers.  Conversely, the mundane evokes boredom, monotony, a time devoid of elevated emotional responses; a time of negation, where the chasm between desire and duty floats apart from one another like drifting icebergs in the cold North Atlantic seas.
  • PAD challenge Day 5- Prompt: discovery (ardoucet.wordpress.com)
    It’s hard to discover something when you’re not looking
    When the eyes of your heart and soul and mind are shut up tight
    From the ravages of the modern madness of busyness
    Being deliberate, opening your senses to the physical
    Leaving behind the virtual world of technology
    The possibilities are endlessly in front of you
    Waiting to be uncovered in the mundane, the routine
    The ordinary of everyday
    In the largeness of a mountain

Incantations Of My Mind

We get up in the morning, have a cup of coffee or tea,  have breakfast and then set out to the same set of monotonous events. Not even once do we question our mundane existance or attempt to change it. Many of us are stuck in self dug pits or pushed into one by others, we are just too comfortable to change. Problems come our way but just no one wants to do anything about it, we stand watching haplessly.
We have talents but are scared to show them, for the fear that they would break our seemingly perfect existance.
There are still others who wish to turn a blind eye to the turmoil going within them.
Such a sorry case…

  1. I agree with your article a hundred percent. Death swallows everything, not only the body, but wealth and possessions, and, as King Solomon had professed, “all is vanity,” and what had been shall be no more, vanished with the body, wallowed by death.
