the kick from within the belly…

in the belly of a king…

I ‘ve just completed the book, ‘The Pregnant King,’ by Devdutt Pattanaik…an intense read that asks you to swallow strange stories, that pushes your imagination…

hindu mythology is weaved in and out of it…and if you are even slightly acquainted with hinduism, you will probably understand the extent to which it seems almost too strange to accept , even as a myth…

but this is where life begs you to be open minded…free fron the limits of what we see, and assume we know…we don’t have to accept stories as true…but there is a lot of truth in what the represent…

the truth..

some of us like to be as different as we can…the moment something seems all too common we’d like to go the other way…
some of us want to fit in as much as we can…differences breed insecurity and acceptance is  of utmost importance…

but what if our world was different…what of we learned to find security in newness…in change…what if we were taught and implemented teaching methods that pushed limits..limits of.normality….then how much bigger than ourselves could we become?
secrets would not be needed because the fear of rejection would go…
power play would be made redundant…

I think its true that competition…the need for power…this ‘want’ has created a lot of progress…but ot has also stifled progress…

and I think we went around pushing ourselves the wrong way…walking forward, but also moving backward…

I know society is changing amd we are broadening are views and ideas and talents…but i’m not sure its for the right reasons…we’ve got our representations all jumbled up…

I ‘m not sure how to put it…but as I see it.n.we’re expanding the world around us…but not really expanding ourselves…

there’s a quote in the book that might make more sense than all my jibber jabber…’the imperfection of the human condition and for our stubborn refusal to make room for all those in between.’
