IF THERE’S A NEED TO FIGHT, FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT CAUSE

If Men Destroy The World

Last week, I went to see a shaman, and she leaned forward and asked me, in a soft voice.

“What kind of man are you?”

And I heard myself saying this to her.

I am a man who believes that men are destroying the world.

And that only women can stop them, if they will.

And, I said, I wish to be a different kind of man.

For me, being masculine means offering love and support, not conflict and greed.

Men are making wars.

Committing crimes.

Committing acts of violence.

Wrecking economies.

Destroying work.

Destroying the planet.

Are ravenously greedy.

Anger. Dominating.

Turning our lives into arguments and conflicts.

Refusing to listen. Refusing to hear.

What will stop men from destroying the world?, she asked.

Women, I said.

Only women can stop men from destroying the world.

“Open Mind” and “Closed Mind”

There is a dangerous little catch phrase which advises you to keep an “open mind.”

This is a very ambiguous term — as demonstrated by a man who once accused a famous politician of having “a wide open mind.”

That term is an anti-concept: it is usually taken to mean an objective, unbiased approach to ideas, but it is used as a call for perpetual skepticism, for holding no firm convictions and granting plausibility to anything.

A “closed mind” is usually taken to mean the attitude of a man impervious to ideas, arguments, facts and logic, who clings stubbornly to some mixture of unwarranted assumptions, fashionable catch phrases, tribal prejudices — and emotions. But this is not a “closed” mind, it is a passive one. It is a mind that has dispensed with (or never acquired) the practice of thinking or judging, and feels threatened by any request to consider anything.

What objectivity and the study of philosophy require is not an “open mind,” but an active mind — a mind able and eagerly willing to examine ideas, but to examine them critically. An active mind does not grant equal status to truth and falsehood; it does not remain floating forever in a stagnant vacuum of neutrality and uncertainty; by assuming the responsibility of judgment, it reaches firm convictions and holds to them. Since it is able to prove its convictions, an active mind achieves an unassailable certainty in confrontations with assailants — a certainty untainted by spots of blind faith, approximation, evasion and fear.

The message is that more can be achieved and attained with an active mind. This applies to the many arenas where humans navigate. This may be on an individual, personal level. This may be viable in a community, country, nation, world level. 

So much more can be achieved with an active mind. A mind that is guided by love, acceptance, tolerance, equality, fairness and justice. 

Exactly what is needed now to rebuild what we, as humans have destroyed. The hope is there waiting for us to make it work.

The possibilities are endless!! Endless like our humanity, endless like our world, endless like the Universe!

We lose people in our lives so many times. The circumstances to each are different but it still hurts the same. 

They can be family members, friends (real life and cyberland), lovers, companions, co-workers, associates, neighbors, educators, mentors, people we admire and people we look up to. 

The circumstances to these loses are all different. As different as the components of the “relationship” may be. We may lose those close to us due to arguments, disagreements, misunderstanding, physical distances, different geographical locations, health issues and  something as final as death.

There are times when we feel all alone in this huge universe. There are times when all we need is a helping hand and a sympathetic ear. 

To my true friends out there, please know, I’m here …. and I won’t let you go!!

I watched a movie this weekend: Divergent and heard this song for the first time. I found a deep meaning in the lyrics. The song applies deeply to the movie line but I think that it applies to the many situations that we encounter in life.

Snow Patrol are a British alternative rock band formed at the University of Dundee in Dundee, Scotland in 1994. The group comprises four Northern Irish members; Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar), Nathan Connolly(guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), Johnny McDaid (piano, guitar, backing vocals), and Scottish member Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals).

Initially an indie rock band, their first three records, the EP Starfighter Pilot (1997), and the studio albums Songs for Polarbears (1998) and When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up (2001), were commercially unsuccessful and were released by the independent labels Electric Honey and Jeepster. The band signed on to the major record label Polydor Records in 2002.

Snow Patrol rose to national fame with their major label debut, Final Straw, in 2003. The album was certified 5× platinum in the UK and eventually sold over 3 million copies worldwide. Their next studio album, Eyes Open (2006), and its hit single, “Chasing Cars“, propelled the band to greater international fame. The album topped the UK Album Charts and was the best-selling British album of the year, selling over 6 million copies worldwide. In 2008, the band released their fifth studio album, A Hundred Million Suns; then, in 2009, they released their first compilation album, Up to Now; and, in 2011, released their sixth studio album, Fallen Empires.

During the course of their career, Snow Patrol have won seven Meteor Ireland Music Awards and have been nominated for six Brit Awards. Since the release of Final Straw, the band has sold over 12 million albums worldwide.
