Some Journeys are inevitable .......................
The Germanwings Airbus A320 airplane was flying from Barcelona to Düsseldorf, carrying 144 passengers, including two babies, along with six crew members, Germanwings CEO Thomas Winkelmann said at a news conference. The plane went down near the French village of Digne-les-Bains, high in the mountains, just before 11 a.m. local time, and debris was found nearby.
I think I wrote many times about people and their journeys. Journeys are of various types. It has various facets. You find journeys within journeys.
Journeying reasons vary from person to person.
Some reasons are inevitable.
Some journeys can be‘professional’, private or common.
I am an inevitable passenger of this sansaric journey of ‘Karma’, I believe.
When it comes to analyzing the term Journey’, in most the occasions, very firstly, the following terms comes in to my mind. They are ‘Karma’ , Actions , Nibbana
I in the above para mentioned that we can find journeys within journeys. Some journeys based solely on ‘educational reasons, purposes or choices, preferences.’
Today, the reason for me to enhance this popular yet heavy, complex topic ‘journey’ is ‘the people who died in the region of Alps due to the plane crash happened at the premises.
Some may have not visited the region of Alps before.
Some may never have dreamt of reaching the Alps. Perhaps for some, it is ‘yes’.
Some, among the people died, might have dreamt of reaching the Alps, but definitely not the way that they experienced.
For what ever reasons personal to them, known to them, specific to them, or even unknown to them, the people, they are journeying.
I always believe that one cannot pre planned their ‘destinies’ or places of death’ yet ‘committing suicide’ is something not mind soothing to discuss.
It is something very SAD and is something unfortunate.
I do not always trust the surfaces, the things always apparent from outside. Some times people bury the reasons and allow the results to come to the surfaces.
‘Depression’, I do not like this term very much. But it is one of the most used or searched word or medical terms of this world. People browse information about this term or about ‘the health condition’ more than they searched for the term ‘sex’. (According to some, sex is the most searched term on internet)
We live in a heavily complex world, unexplainable. Though one can division the world in to different or various segments such as ‘political’, apolitical’, economical, social or cultural, even religious and then try to analyze it.
Due to many reasons, individuals face various ‘health hazards, amongst them, psychologically or medically known as ‘Depression is well known to everybody.
For some or certain health hazards you cannot really, directly blame anyone, pointing finger at anyone for the reasons’ though you can understand that the entire world we live is responsible for such health situations of people. Because everything and every person are some way or the other linked with each other, or each thing.
Consequences of such health situations one had to bear alone, or the family, loved ones, near or dear ones alone has to face the bad side or unacceptable sides of it.
Sometimes the entire world has to suffer as a result of such health hazards directly or indirectly.
Causes for such situations can be ‘professional related’, work related, personal, private or perhaps public.
It varies from person to person.
But ‘total recovery’ is assured I believe in such health situations.
‘Prevention is better than cure’ but how possible it is in the current complex world we live full of people with various mind sets.
One may try to prevent a situation but it is no easy within a complex society. Some may try to pull you or put you in to an unhealthy environment.
Let me share a tiny example.
Recently I changed the normal bus that I take to The OUSL, Nugegoda. Reason is ‘unbearable type of music played in the bus. I decided to get in to the other bus thinking that I will not get any chance to hear such type of music. Can you imagine, in every bus I got in to ‘I heard the same music type’. Normally I am a music creature I can die for good music, for a good melody but there are moments, my mind refuses such type of music played in the bus.
Anyhow, I took a three wheeler to go to work on that day. That is why I am telling, this world will not let you live a easy life.
Never ever expect such living in this world.
There are dinosaurs or anacondas waiting to kill you along side of your journeys.
You cannot easily escape from such creatures. I learn everyday.
If any person consecutively or continuously harassing a person, undermining, oppressing, cornering, deviating from the mass society there is a chance that people may directly or indirectly affect by such acts of ‘people treating people’ idiotically.
Life is not something always bargainable.
Person might get internally cracked due to such behaviors of some, above mentioned. Yet, unfortunately, it is not always apparent to others.
It takes little time for others to view the ‘results’, health situations of any.
You do not find instant results as a matter of what ever constraints a person may face for a longer period of time.
If someone facing something chronically, ‘relief’ is something that lies far from they can reach.
Sometimes after constant ‘observations’ or series of ‘clinical meetings’ with the relevant doctors, professionals, they suggest or prescribe certain ‘medications’ but I am wondering whether they get to know the real reasons for such incidents or situations, behavious of such people.
I do not know whether the specialists should treat or pay closer attention to the ‘current health situation’ of a person or is it the causes that we need to understand or verify and then discard the causes or the environments unfriendly for better living.
Take professional environments of carrier places for instance. I do not think that it is always the ‘materialistic setting’ that helps people to work in a peaceful manner. What about the people and the roles they play. Isn’t that important for better outcomes, peaceful living.
The ‘people, the co- workers of the entity you are working for is a vital part.
Their responses, the actions of your co – workers, that too very important with regard every aspect of ‘peaceful living.
I know it is not easy to ‘totally manure the cancerous cells’ yet that can be controlled. But you can understand that it is not difficult for other health conditions.
Some causes of some health hazards are solely ‘societical. Once you cleansed or discard ‘unhealthy surroundings the causes for health hazards such as ‘depression’ can be solved. You feel relieved at the end. Yet, nothing is easy.
The medications sometimes not always medicinal, I guess, it is cultural or sometimes professional.
I am thinking of the sole who thought of committing suicide near the mountains of Alps, due to his health situation (according to some) I do not know whether it is the real reason.
You may find other reasons in the latter stage of ‘your investigations’ so one needs to always stay calm and relax without cursing the causes or the person who is responsible for such acts.
There are things that one can control or controllable, but I find many other things that exist in this world cannot be controlled single handedly
or at personal level.
That is why I always say that the creature called ‘Individual’ is not an isolated person in this globe though the creature expects that to happen and respect ‘privacy’ peace of mind.
According to Buddhism, the reason for any living creature to travel across the continent of sansara is ‘Karma’ (actions) relief can be found only when the person reaches the NIBBANA
May all beings be happy and healthy! Sabbe Satta Bhawantu sukhitatta!
