Love, Crowds and Leadership

Confused Traffic Lights

Life goes on, as usual, tough, troubling and confusing, but extremely incapable of changing few things, those who’re noble enough to love a concept, idea or a piece of land when they have absolutely all the right not to, will be the ones to stay with it longer and perhaps forever.

It’s very rare for crowds to move in the right direction except either when it’s absolutely as clear as the sun for the -80 IQ or when they’re inspired by a leadership, let it be an individual, character or an idea.

When it gets confusing everyone returns back to where he/she belongs! Don’t follow the crowds, either be among them when it’s absolutely right or lead them when it’s turbulent and you have a vision.

Searching for an old love

I received the following messages from a German lady via a German networking site. Messages say it all. Sorry for the poor English, she’s not a native speaker and I didn’t want to modify the messages and just post as is ..

I was quite inactive on the site for a long while, got back and checked my messages to find the above, it was astonishing to see someone still searching for another who lost contact with for 24 years, I got back with a reply that I don’t know him but I find that inspirational and asked for more details about it and she responded saying:

Jason Mraz – Life is wonderful

Hey Everyone,

Amazing video I started my day with today and thought to share.

It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a storie
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I’m saying

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
And it takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la

It takes a night to make it done
And it takes a day to make you young brother
And it takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
And it takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes the dust to have it polished

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
And it takes a lost before you found it
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to show you care
It takes a hole to see a mountain

Ah la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la la life is full of
Ah la la la la la life is so full of love
Ah la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la life is full of
Ah la la la la la life is so full of love

Prison Break: Lay It Down Slow

Dear All,

As you might know I had been busy during this week and a reason of being busy that you might don’t know was Prison Break. After finishing my exams I had this strange feeling of watching the rest of Prison Break as I watched season one only. And during this week I watched season two, three and four.

I really don’t remember much of what I watched and don’t really care that much, as I wanted just to be up-to-date with what’s happening in the world including what people watch, not to live like a freaky stranger.

What touched me the most was, actually two ideas:

The Ending:

How the whole story turned out, made me look to the story as a practical life lesson, a very deep life lesson. I saw it as a reflection of justice in the situations of people involved. I believe people are born alike in their desire for good or bad and life is about decisions we make. At the end life will never settle down except with the good for the good and the bad for the bad, either in this life or thereafter.

Any challenge that we pass with in life should be looked at this way, and how right we do in it, is what determines how good things will turn out for us.

Human Relationships:

Human relationship still a very mysterious subject to me. Decisions you take in life that involve others need so much weighting to what’s valuable, what’s worthy and what is not. The fundamental idea of the show is the sacrifice of someone doing good in his life according to our standards, to help his innocent brother out of prison. Then getting back to help team mates, whom had been his enemies at some point.

A situation and a phrase in the show, even made me discover things still inside myself, and related to some situations I had been through. May be because growing up with a clean tongue, I wasn’t able to say it when I was supposed to. The guy’s reaction when he knew that it was a set up, made me laugh, in evil.

“You whore! You’re a whore, and your mother was a whore, and her mother, and your father used to turn tricks at a gas station, cause he was a whore too!”

Hey, I know it’s just a TV show, but still time investment on entertainment can get back to you with thoughts deeper than you imagine.

This is just a random post celebrating my freedom from Prison Break. And might blog more thoughts about it when I have a better chance.

Had to get busy, real productively busy right now.

if you got dreams in your heart
why don’t you share them with me?
and if dreams don’t come true
I’ll make sure that your nightmares
are through

if you got pain in your heart
why don’t you share it with me?
and we’ll just wait and see
if it’s half what it used to be

and lay it down slow
lay it down free
lay it down easy
but lay it on me

if you’ve got love in your heart
why don’t you keep it with mine?
I can’t promise a miracle
but I’ll always be trying

and lay it down slow
lay it down free
lay it down easy
but lay it on me

lay it down easy
lay it on me

lay it down easy
but lay it on me
