You have a message

... and the song that was playing on TV when i switched on the comp to check the feeds happened to be Joan Osborne's 'One of Us', a personal favourite, mostly because of the lyrics. And one of the feeds that popped up first linked to this, a mail from God.
Now its very rarely that I have posts that links to things that make a good forward but there are times when that cool line from The Matrix Reloaded, which i keep mouthing regularly, is made believable - "We have not come here by chance. I do not believe in chance. ........ I do not see coincidence, I see providence. I see purpose. I believe it our fate to be here. It is our destiny." And so, I thought i should do my bit by spreading the message.
The reason I like that mail is because it keeps things simple, and brings up a point that I've increasingly come to believe in - the overbearing influence of money, on society.
Before you write it off as a pro-socialism tirade, I do believe that as a tool, money has immense amount of benefits, but when the accumulation of money becomes a purpose in itself, we become the tool, and that's what's increasingly happening.
Meanwhile, on a sidenote, the message also perhaps answers austere's recent question. Death is quite possibly God's way of saying 'long time, no see'

until next time, counting my blessings

death I mean.

Death part - If death wasn't random, then where is the fun in living??

And the money part - yarr everybody has their own definition of success and happiness. Aren't you shattering somebody's dream when you say money can't be your be all and end all?

That song is kind of nice.

Imagine if we didn't have a God. Actually, we don't need to. Thank God. =)

completely agree on the money bit - somehow have seen a lot of people lose focus on life, on priorities in the quest for money. and for a lot of them its not even moneylust, but just an obsessive worry about survival and making do. ( the negative spin on money lust i suppose)

Love the quote from the Matrix. It feels like that most days.

austere: as the joker would say, maybe 'its all part of the plan' :}

epiphany: the fun is over, the moment you think of mortality.. and its only an opinion, my friend :)

manuscrypts said...

pallavi: yes, but thats not enough, we need to be able to crack the 'why' too..

amidipe: the concept made it one of my faves :)

manuscrypts said...

arunima: :)

cynic: yes, nothing is ever enough :|

manuscrypts said...

orhan: like i said, if only we could decipher the reasons too

Epiphany said...

Based on your opinions I gather you don't like deadlines :)

Paradox Philic said...

This track is a personal favourite for me too :)... both the music & the lyrics... esp this

"If seeing meant that you would have to believe"
