Misplaced Trivialities!

1 Comment

It is that time of year when what people say can really make themselves look so small and trivial with respect to what is currently happening around the world especially those working in businesses which got me really thing about the whole thing.

When you think of it we are surrounded by a world in which people are starving because of ecological disasters most man made, being killed because of their belief, nations are fighting wars or states of cease fire, women are being suppressed and discriminated and my more injustices.

Then I work for and with people who put such things as sales targets, sales figures, league tables and the such as more important than anything else to a point they make peoples lives a misery if they miss any of this which are frankly are such trivial things in the big pictures of things.

It got me thinking about these people in question just how foolish and trivial they sound especially at a time of year when some of us think of people who are less fortunate than ourselves especially those people who are alone at this time of year. That is Christmas which now has become a celebration where families, friends and strangers come together regardless of religion and creed.

It may be than I think too deeply especially about the bigger picture of the world around me but I do see just how such things in reality in the end have no real relevance to the world around us as they are constructs of our society and it’s flaws rather than Universe around us!

Killing the Magic of Christmas!

1 Comment

As always the modern world and modern way of doing business is killing the magic of Christmas replacing it with a festival geared around the commercial race to attract people to buy as many presents from the retailers who fall over themselves to attract the customers.

This has resulted each year over the past decades Christmas for the retailers starts earlier and earlier each year along with their winter sales but now each year the sales simply failing more and more to attract the customers who a simply becoming numb or even excited by Christmas itself.

In the end all the retailers are doing is getting themselves in a vicious circle which has ended up both devaluing Christmas and the Sales they depend on as after all if the customer is always faced by Sale almost constantly through the year. So all the retailers have successfully done is kill off the goose which laid their golden egg as after all Sales used to be those special events for short periods of time scatted throughout the year which attracted customers in to spend money and look for a bargain.

Now why should people even bother with Sales and Christmas itself as after all they can buy bargain any time and even on line so now people simply are not attracted to retail stores especially in Sales and Christmas.

My personal view the retailers should wake up to what they are doing as if they continue down the route of constant sales and starting Christmas earlier and earlier it will eventually make the whole process of sales financially a total waste of time and money for them as they will gain nothing from them including more business.

It is one of those things that retailers should step back and really think about what they are doing and one of those times where they go back to times past when sales and Christmas were more special and were both shorter and more intense time periods.

Sadly no one will listen to likes of myself as all retailers and their executives see is the falling profits from their constant sales and rather than doing what everyone else would do step back and study what is happing, they just put on more sales in faint hope it will cure the problem!

Steampunk: Dreams of a Golden Age!

1 Comment

Myself I am not surprised that Steampunk has taken off recently especially in the United States and starting to take off here in the United Kingdom as I see it as a natural reaction to the modern world around us which has become very grey, sterile and bland.

I see it as a natural reaction to a modern world which is becoming more grey and sterile especially for those people who need to live in a world which is far more colourful and forward looking than the world they see around them. They are looking backwards to a world which was far more alive in so much the Victorians we far more innovative, forward looking and not afraid to do new and grandiose things something which simply does not happen any more.

Some people will see this as escapist and looking at Victorian World with rose tinted glasses which is true but there is this underlying thing missed by those people it shows a growing disillusionment with a modern world around them.

But as always these people will regard such groups like Steampunk as another group of dreamers who need dismissing and they will sadly continue their grey lives obvious to the world is falling into nothingness around them.

Just sometimes it is good to be a dreamer and different!

Religion: The Master of Madness!

Leave a comment

I am watching a documentary on television about Lebanon which even now still troubled by sectarian troubles between the two major Muslim Sects which is reflected all over the Middle East in various wars across the region.

Myself I think it is total madness as these people are fighting over a belief which is may or may not be real rather than something more tangible like freedom and self determination. I really do not understand how someone can kill and hate someone just because they believe in something else or in this case they believe in the same god but in a different way.

I understand more if they were fighting over food, rights even territory as they are real but to fight over something intangible is total madness especially when the said same people commit atrocities in the name of their beliefs as it total madness and inhuman!

All it does is enforce my view that religion now does more harm than good to the world in general or to be more exact certain religions do. This all made worse the religions in question claim to promote peace, tolerance and the such.

What makes their positions and actions worse is that there are other religions around the world who do not follow the same path and they can live peacefully with other religions and cultures peacefully. Plus here in the United Kingdom the said same religions in question leave peacefully even with their various sub-sects and tolerate each others beliefs.

The said religions being Christians, Jews and Muslims who strangely believe in the same God who in one country can live in peace but in others they spread a madness which kills people in such pointless ways and cruelty.

Then they wonder why sometimes Agnostics and Atheists have such negative view of these religions as such actions make them look so insane and inhuman to anyone who looks from the outside!

Depression: Bringer of Emptiness!

Leave a comment

As always my depression has been working it’s devious ways on me over the last few weeks in so much it has made me constantly tired, irritable and worst of all made me feel empty inside. This is even when I am on the anti-depressants but at least it is not the deeper downs I used to get when I was not on them.

But it has meant over the last few weeks I have been very quiet generally and not exactly very sociable or even wanting any real human contact other than shallow everyday sort of interactions. On top of which it knocks my creative side for six to a point I feel empty and desolate inside.

It makes makes feel empty inside in the end as I in the end my life feels like it is pointless and not worth it. This in itself is a very destructive thought which I have to fight once it arrives in my head.

But at least now I know these phases of my depression are only temporary even if they last months they will eventually disappear especially when I start to ignore theses negative feelings. One day soon I will wake up and be creative and full of life again and these difficult days will be forgotten again.

Sleep Walkers!

1 Comment

The only way I can describe a lot of the people around me is sleep walkers as they seam to live their life asleep to what is going on around them even close to home. They never question anything they are told by those in authority, media even their peers almost as if they are too lazy to care or do anything about it.

So around me the world goes to sleep and it shows in a world which does not move forward any more if anything all we get as new things which are rehashes of older things and not exactly new and people just accept this as normal.

The world currently is sleep walking into the future which currently just looks much the same as the present which will just end up a rehash.

Though there are those people who are awake but mostly they are among those who want to take advantage of the fact the world and it’s people have gone asleep and become rich and powerful. Though they still seam to be asleep lacking a real imagination themselves ironically.

This may seam a very dark picture of the world but just do the same as done every few while just look and take in the world around you and you will be surprised just how static the modern world has become and how the people around you seam to sleep walk through life.

Though out there it is not all bad as you will notice those people who are still awake and they are easily see as those people who still have opinions and they will voice them. They are the colourful people who stand out from the crowd who are most definitely individuals.

In the End!

Leave a comment

In the end I am starting the question if my current job is worth its negative effect on my depression caused by a very negative environment at work caused by those who put the company first before both customers and employees.

And the answer is getting more and more towards no as in the end my own health both physical and mental is more important than any job as another job can always be found and I only one life.
