The Conflict Eternal

The human heart is somehow drawn to beauty, love and has an innate comprehension of the sacred. It wants to love without limits or conditions, wants to spread its light to drive away the darkness enveloping humanity, wants to give kindness without getting anything in return. It sees the beauty of unlimited giving.

But the brain isn’t brave enough to let it do so. The brain being the product of the evolution of millions of years of struggle for survival only wants to survive at any cost. It is afraid to give, afraid to surrender to the emotions of the heart, because that goes completely against the law of the survival of the fittest, the law that states that only the most cunning, the most opportunistic, the most selfish will survive.

This permanent opposition of the ever-giving heart and the ever-acquisitive brain is the cause of the incessant conflict that goes on in every human being.

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!
