Empowerment

This post is inspired by Spiritwoman, a blogger I stumbled across last month, who made me realize, while exchanging comments at this post, that the world is not wicked.


We're empowered
To change the world
No excuses
For lack of solutions
Take individual responsibility
For what's happening


It must be an objective
Not an ideal
To have a world
Without war
Not fear nightmares
Instead make peace a reality


Let's contribute to world peace
With our actions
Let's believe in ourselves
And start right…now!



You must be the change you want to see in the world.
- Mahatma Gandhi


We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
- Mother Theresa

After a long pause, I am back to the city...and, it is nice to read so many beautiful pieces appearing in your blog during this period.
I've chosen this one to put my comment as it seems to be the most striking presentation amongst the lot. The emotional involvement to the contents is rarely seen now in poetry. I should not make any comment on whether it is inspirational to the masses or not, as I believe in not judging the masses, but the self. I have learnt to rectify own guilts, own faults; but never felt qualified, spiritually or ethically, to judge others. But, I must say it goes straight to my soul. Without confining it to women's power, I may feel satiated with its natural flavour of enthusiasm. I truly loved its blending with emotional conveying of the poet.
While individual consciousness is narrowly marginalised in the present world, contribution towards all godly deeds remain marginalised too to individual level. A collective consciousness to greater sense often fails to withstand collective tyranny of the privileged ( I mean what you know ) and, thus wars take place more often than in the medieval ages, societies break faster than in the earlier centuries and dualism in mind is more prevalent (good sense at individual or family level; but collectively dictated by evil sense) than in even early modern age. Thus, messages of saner people find no finer channel to reach up to the field needing irrigation and fertility. That's one of the saddest tragedies of the modern world! Yet, I respect your message and wish it reaches as many and as penetratingly as it hoped to do !
While writing all these, one beautiful sentence of Shakespeare comes to my mind; I end this comment with the quote:--
"It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are no deeds"

Best wishes ever,

Saibal,

Your response is like an extension to my own post.

Yes I do know what you mean by "collective tyranny of the privileged" and even though my message may "find no finer channel to reach up to the field needing irrigation and fertility" I will, however, continue to write on what I feel I should.

If the message has touched just one person, I'll still consider my purpose of writing has been served and that is success for me.

Thank you very much for a thought provoking comment and please accept my best wishes too.:)
