Spirituality: Be uncrazy in a crazy world
MAY 19, 2014 BY UGADMIN1

The world is crazy. We all know that. Sooner or later, we arrive at the same conclusion: it is a crazy world. The question facing us is how much craziness we want to embrace and how crazy do we want to become before we realize it is a dead end. The 14th Dalai Lama, captured this accurately: “Because he(man) sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

“Dies never having lived.” We do this. Die never having lived. So what does it take to live? When I watch those who live simple, yet amazing, lives I realize that becoming aware of the craziness and its infinite loops and draws is the first step to success. Awareness. Begin with awareness. Awareness of the craziness. Awareness of why we do what we do.

What crazy ideas, hopes, dreams, fears, wants, guilt drives us to be crazy? This awareness gives us a broad angle view of our life’s landscape. Oh!, the heart says, this is what my life on a landscape looks like. Hmm…  Each of us has to stare at the landscape intently and over extended periods of time if we are to catch us thinking crazy and acting crazy. At the root of all religions, at the root of spirituality lies this plea to humanity to drop the craziness to start our journey of true well-being.
