The Age Of Consciousness

Our history of evolution has been an interesting one. We entered stone age, moved on to the metal age, the age of industrialization, the atomic age and finally, the age of computers. We have evolved through exploration of the sciences over the years but have you ever wondered what’s next?

Having satisfied our materialistic needs and desires, our curiosity has led us to explore the planet we live in. We’re planning space travel, preparing to live in colonies on the moon if earth was ever declared inhabitable. Having traveled far and wide, we have learnt about the world around us, or have we?

We live in a world where we know everything about other people’s lives instead of our own. We fight our misplaced feelings, inhibitions, self-judgement and crave to search for people who will make us feel good about our own self worth. Our ability to question is proving to be our own downfall, but there is an upside to this. After constantly running in circles and hitting mental roadblocks, we finally ask ourselves, how do we change the way we feel? How do we know what’s the truth after we realise ‘ourselves’ is really our ‘self’? How do explore the ‘self’?

We’re slowly becoming self-aware, of ourselves and the world within us which we never really explored. The power of thought, the influence of our own actions, whether through self administered drugs or through persevered observance- We are slowly but surely entering the age of consciousness.

It is our primeval instinct as humans to be curious and we are hungry for knowledge.

I am hungry for knowledge.

Watch this space.

Elephant In The Room- The Panama Papers

panama-paper-leak-corruption-tax

We see the elite and the powerful in newspapers everyday and we devour all the information about their work and their life with our breakfast like it was cereal to our lonely, eventless bowl of milk. We have become accustomed to the corruption that surrounds us- Implications and fingers pointing at everyone, the rot in the judicial system and the annihilated concept of a respectful climb to a position of power- is now a part of our daily constitution. We woke up to another day when the panama papers were leaked out by a source only known as John Doe. One of the most wide-spread scandals after Wiki leaks came out, this one did not target governments but instead, it also targeted people. Influential people- From world leaders to reputable millionaires, everyone faced the harsh side of spotlight with lots of criticism and outrage angled at them.

The question is why is the leaking of the names in the panama papers like a bucket full of ice cold reality jolting us to take notice while we’ve already been in the wake of global impropriety.

The Panama papers contain a list of people who have been cashing in their money in offshore accounts as a measure to evade tax. With 1.5 millions names from all over the world implicated in the papers, does it really over 1 million offenders to realise the scale of this corruption? Let’s think about it.
