“LOVE- IN- HELL”

“LOVE- IN- HELL”

Everyone wants to be loved, to the extent of showing a caring act if necessary. I have wondered if ‘love’ is in existence, even ‘love’ has no place to stay. Who will be the household?” – – –  Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

   Have you forgotten those who promised to be there for you? Love has become a playlet used for dramatic dispositions, if love can transform into a human being, many will forget their consciousness. If the sins of the past will be revisited then, love is not love, since it has  been assumed that love erases the past. What I am saying might not be meaningful but, this should be kept in a room called ‘thinking’. When a true love comes even, love will disappear without traces. Yet, is love really love? Must it be something that must be felt? There are times you tend to love someone but, you can not explain it, love can make you forget its own foundation. If I had chosen love as my partner for life then, this will imply, “everything should be nothing and something should be everything”. As a matter of fact, love should not discriminate or cause disagreement in human society yet, tribalism, religious conflicts, hatred, nepotism, and so on, can not be quenched within the umbrella of humanity. What is really wrong? Where is love?

     “When love is not in existence, hatred will exist. What if ‘love ‘ and ‘hatred’ were not in existence, will mankind be in existence? What will happen to man?” – – –  Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

   Why must I show love to people? Why must I act as if I have love whereas my heart is nowhere to be found? Those aforesaid questions should also be given to the vast majority for consumption. If I were to be ‘love’ I will vacate the world in order to know my importance but, I hope more calamities won’t happen before I return. At times, you tend to show love to others but what you would get at the end will make you lament, if you want a better love, I think hell should be preferable. The crux of everything has been betrayed, we have been taken by the fake aroma of love. There is no one whose bag is filled with love without an element of hatred, you will be partially subjective in some, if not all. Tears should not be offended because I will borrow some things but, this time, it will be an advanced tears to cap all things. The love of mankind has reduced because mankind is filled with a deceptive decision. I have expressed with my unconscious mind, when the time comes the authentic nature will be favoured on meritocracy. Once again, where is love?

Love should not be the basic foundation,hatred might be strange but, it is a good thing for man. “— Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

ON THE NOTION OF NARCISSISM

ON THE NOTION OF NARCISSISM

If I were to be a narcissist I will assume that the world is mine, I will have extreme pride in myself, no one will be relevant to me. I will consider myself always, my ego will be extremely high. This is the concept of narcissism.” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

Note: I will assume myself to be a narcissist in this article for proper understanding.

image

In this concept, it will always be the “I” in every aspect of life. I will always want to be a protagonist or an important person in all spheres of life. I will not admit my mistakes, instead, I will cast the blame on others. What is life, if not my existence only, I will play my games anyhow, afterall, no one can probe me. If that should be the case, I must always remember that the unknown cause is always at work, if I live for today, how about tomorrow? If it is “I”, it is  making sense, I have made my life rigid in such a way that nobody can suggest anything whether good or bad. Life is something to me whereas, it is regarded as nothing. As a matter of fact, if I were to be narcissist all what I will be clamoring for is to be at the pinnacle of everything. Even  if, it involves human sacrifices thus, I have nothing to lose. I will be willing to expand my coast beyond, since I have assumed that all human beings are below. My irrelevances will be  relevant within me, not to all, my heart will beat faster than ever before. I have conceived that the world is mine already,thinking, I would take the world wherever I am going to. How about death? Where am I going?.

Narcissism is different from Egoism. As the former connotes, extreme pride while the latter conveys, self interest.” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

As a matter of fact, narcissism is different from egoism. Every man is an egoist, you tend to consider yourself in all aspects before others. That is a normal circumstance. But a narcissist will always take his or her own interests extremely. If the world were to be “I”, it will make no sense, I will be left alone to build my own world without a divided labour. How will I survive? How will I reason? Who will I reason for?. At times, you tend to reason with  others which will yield an applaud, imagine you were to be the only one in this world. Who will applaud you? Stones? Yourself? Will it make sense?. I have disapproved different thoughts by people , because of my thoughts even, for my thoughts to be relevant I will need the approval of people to progress. How about that?. I want to enjoy my life smoothly without any interference, yet, I am always thinking of myself, what I will become in future is an action of today, if that is not the case, why am I planning?.

Only if a  narcissist would imagine that, there might  not be tomorrow, yet, the world is  permanent in a temporal form. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

” I have played a role of a narcissist in this article, but, I am not a narcissist. I am not saying that to be a narcissist is bad, perhaps, who am I to judge. But, if critical thinking is to be permitted you will know the right path “—– Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“A PREFACE : WHO IS A PERSON? “

“A PREFACE : WHO IS A PERSON? “

What is a person is different from Who is a person. The former connotes beyond identity while the latter connotes your identity. It is now hard to know an original person. Can a fake person be in existence?. If that should be the case, what and who is a person? “—-Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

   If you have the problem of identity you might find it hard to respond to this question, it is not because you can not answer it but, it will look ridiculous to you by asking that,” are you a person “. At times, you tend to see people who behave like animals, even animals can be personed, and act like human beings. If a person is an individual who has an attribute of a human being, can we regard such a human being as a person?. I have guessed and rationalised coupled with several researches in the quest of knowing who a person is but, I discovered that, I can not regard an animal as a person in as much as a person possesses a unique language which signifies clarity in all ramifications. Does that mean a person will be regarded as a person, if  he or she possesses a unique language?. Afterall,we have seen a person whose language is unique but, has no rational thinking. Yet, who and what is a person? Is it a human being? Is it a human being who acts consciously and unconsciously?. At times, you tend to behave irrational which will make some people to regard you as a  nonperson, there is no doubt the real identity of mankind is yet to be confirmed in this masked world. If the real self is the real self it would have been better, this is a world where man will continue to convince and confuse himself all in the name of identity. Are you a person?

image

  As a matter of fact, as I am writing this article, am I a person? Am I a human being? I can be a human being without a rational thinking but, if I can think sensibly, then, I can be regarded as a person. It is very pertinent to note that, everyone can be a human being but, it is hard to see a person, I am not saying that a person is not a human being. Truth be told, some animals behave like human beings these animals are making it difficult to know who a person is. Dolphin is the most intelligent animal in world, human beings are also intelligent. How do we distinguish this, since this animal shares one of the attributes of human beings? From the above thesis, we can see that there is need for us to know the concept of a person. Although, animals can not possess all attributes deposited in human beings, if there are more explanations to this issue it should not be in the game of life. It should be noted that, anyone who is called a person in a given society should have the capacity to think, must possess consciousness and unconsciousness, and the ability to reflect on past and present issues. Can animals do those things? If you are not satisfied with what I have been saying then, what and who is  a person? If we can not define the concept of a person, who else will do that? Even animals can not define themselves like human beings. How will you define yourself, if truly you are in existence? How  will I define myself?

” It is a huge concept, if  you are to  define yourself. But, success is always easy to mention. “—-Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“A TRUTHFUL LIE”

“A TRUTHFUL LIE”

”  The elders will not give up, they will continue to deceive youths who have been dancing to the melodious tunes of happiness, thinking, they are the leaders of tomorrow. This is a truthful lie.” – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

I am not launching an attack to anyone but, it is time to stand and express what has been hidden to all. If you can not think, who will think for you?. There are no signs of tomorrow but the present is the tomorrow you have been clamoring for. The youths are still expecting the elders to leave the thrones they have occupied for years, they have promised the youths that loyalty will always be their banner but, there are no chances of giving up, yet, their old children are also on the queue to embrace the quest of power. Who will query them? Who will fight them? Even, loyalty is angry because of this betrayal but, what would loyalty do? Loyalty can not be active because the unseen can not be seen. If the elders are not wise, must the youths follow the same act? It  has become a  vengeance of the youths to dethrone the elders, they will succeed in this quest. Can they rule judiciously? In the case of this contemporary society where youths are often distracted by the worldly expenses, thus, bargaining their sensibility for senselessness. I am not exempted from this situation in as much as  I am living in this world. The mystery will not be shown to all.

What life am I living?  Am I living my life? It is better to live one’s life than to live a fake which will yield nothing. Life is not secured, it is for everybody and anybody, if that should be the case, the way we think would be a great influence if life is to be shaped. You have embraced that truthfulness which you have thought of, different times. As time approaches, your discovery alerted your consciousness thus, you became inclined in order to fight for your independence which has been blurred for many years. If the essence of truth is for lie to be demolished or destroyed,then, lie is also truthful. In  other words, the existence of ‘lie’connotes ‘truth’, you can not be truthful all the days of your life but, let religion and others keep their examples as regards this matter. Elders and youths have embraced these two concepts : lie and truth. As a matter of fact, where are we going? We tend to ask this question on several occasions but, what have we done to it?. If I have a plan, then, it must be executed to become a plan, one vital problem we are facing is a notion of realization. Are you real? Am I real?. If I engage myself in a truthful lie, how will I progress?. The future is now, it is not coming. Wiseness will be needed.

The journey is not far, you have chosen a criterion that is too long to  comprehend, infact, the problem is yourself, if you can solve it, then, the problems of life will be simple. “—-Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

A CLEAVAGE : ‘BAD’ AND ‘SIN’

A CLEAVAGE : ‘BAD’ AND ‘SIN’

Why must we assume that to be ‘bad’ is to be a sinner?. Thus, some people tend to assume that ‘sinconnotes badness. These two concepts are absolutely different. Let thinking be invited.” – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

  As a matter of fact, there has been a misconception between ‘bad’ and ‘sin’. In a particular society where some laws are given and stipulated as a moral standard, if I violate one of the laws created, then, I may be regarded as a bad human being, because I have behaved badly. This belongs to the realm of the society, some people tend to assume that since I have violated the law then, I am a sinner. If there are no laws, will they be bad people? Surely, don’t you think the essence of establishing a law is to create an awareness of bad people? The concept of good has become a subject matter within human society, we tend to look for perfection in this world whereas, perfection is struggling to find its place in the world of imperfections. If what is good is good, and what is bad is not good. Why can’t bad be bad? Why can’t sin be sin? But, some people tend to say, if you are a sinner then, you are bad, and if you are bad then, you are a sinner. How apt is this view?

image

    I will now shift my focus to religion where the term ‘sin’ is so vital. Remember that what I am trying to do in this article is to distinguish the aforementioned concepts. Religion tend to focus on what is good only but,how about the concept of bad in religion?. In this context, spiritual speculations  tend to be the crux of everything, their maxim will be, “above is important than below”. I am not saying that religion is bad or good but, I see no reason why mankind can not distinguish strongly between these two concepts : bad and sin. As a matter of fact, religion has divided a peaceful society with the concept of’ bad ‘ to be a sinful act. If society made religion, then, religion is of the society thus, why is religion causing conflicts in the  same society? If that should be the case, I argue that religion dictates all bad occurrences as a‘ sin’ not as a bad concept. How the society will analyze things is different from religion point of view, bad will be bad as regards to the society while in religion, bad will be regarded as a sin. What can you say to this?

image

  “ Do not conceive ‘bad and sin’ as the same. These two concepts are absolutely different , in religion, you can not amend a stipulated constitution because the unknown made it so. But, society can amend a stipulated constitution because the known can be questioned even, badness can still be changed, infact, a sin is an everlasting one.”—–Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua
