Why does the world seen to have gone mad ?

Why does the world seen to have gone mad ?

.

We live in a mad hectic world with war and greed seeming to be the main focus of it's inhabitants,everyone is out to gain and acheive superiority no matter the cost to life and the planet we live on. I suspect this has always been man's main focus but with an ever increasing population we are experiencing a greater impact then ever before. Greed spreads faster than the plague as we strive to have more than the man next door, the world seems consumed with material gain but why is this ? Because man's sole focus is on form when life is only really all about the formless.

The formless can be described in many ways, the dictionaries description is as follows 'without a clear or definite shape or structure '. Now can you tell me do you have a clear or definate shape or structure ? I know for certain that i don't .My body has been altering and changing since the moment it was conceived.The universe and everything in it is also formless because it is forever changing, even down to the chair you sit on today ,it was not always a chair and i have no doubts that one day it will again be something different.

So that you get the picture here are a few more examples:

What makes the house you live in, is it the bricks and mortar it's made of the space within the bricks and mortar ?

Is it the bars that keep the lion caged,or the space between the bars ?

Is it the sound or note that makes the music or is it the silence between the notes ?

If we then reflect back to what makes a person it's not the body that our eyes see but the forever formless,timeless aspect that we remember after the body is no more.What we really are all about defies the world of form but still we focus on it.We spend all our time and energy believing that what we see and what we posses is who we are.

Have you ever seen the dead body of a loved one and thought well that's not them,sure it may resemble how they looked but you can't some how feel who they actually where, it's as if they have gone and left a shell behind.Or have you not seen a friend or relative for years there body may have aged depending on the time apart but who they are remains the same.

The mad world has been created because of these facts because we have forgottten who and what we truely are.

Thank You Stars

Some call it faith, some call it love

Some call it guidance from above

You are the reason we found ours

So thank you, stars

Some people think it's far away

Some know it's with them everyday

You are the reason we found ours

So thank you, stars

There are no winds

That can blow it away on the air

When they try to blow it away

Is when you know it will always be there

To some it's the strength to be apart

To some it's a feeling in the heart

And when you're out there on your own

It's the way back home

There are no winds

That can blow it away on the air

When they try to blow it away

Is when you know it will always be there

Some call it faith, some call it love

Some call it guidance from above

You are the reason we found ours

So thank you, stars

So thank you, stars

So thank you, stars

#2 Hi Dean thanks for the comment.Usually in nature a balance does take place,whether this means mankind becoming extinct i'm obviously in no position to comment,the post was mainly to make those not aware,aware of the error we are making regarding our thoughts.
