It’s actually not as weird as all other “normal days” that can be monotonous, maybe boring but also full of strong contrasts, conflicts and wars that make people scared and insecure about the violence `s realities in a world where everything is sent directly into in living rooms `s otherwise safe environment.
Holy day `s tradition is a welcome opportunity to deflect, reflect and celebrate the traditions` s long-standing habits and rituals – a break from reality `s diverse and profound differences in the world’s myriad cultures.
From my own eye level, there are many positive signs of development and processes in man `s way of thinking and reacting to the many atrocities we have committed over the past several years, and the conflicts and revolutions which historically seems necessary to return “power to heed.”
IT generation `s last century seems to have” forgotten “spirituality` s necessary tools for man `s balance and health in general, but the generation that follows on the heels of amongst other things my generation has seen through the skewed power distribution in the world` s political, financial and materialism `s dominant factor in all aspects of life.
The last century will surely be remembered as an IT technology `s many breakthroughs, but also as the period in which the rich world reaped gold from people who were poor and lack of food – actually stored in the western world’s great pantry.
The world today lacks money everywhere – or does it? – We have already seen that money is silent, but speak in confined spaces – there are only few of these rooms, but they exist with the oval tables and plush-covered floors to reduce noise to a minimum.
I wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year 2012 with the hope of peace, development and understanding of mankind `s most important and future goals – climate improvements coexistence across all cultures, as well as eyes and ears directed at the world` s tormentors, whether it is political or financial monstrosities.
