Thought for the day 29th of May 2011
“We can destroy ourselves by cynicism and disillusion, just as effectively as by bombs” by Kenneth Clark.
When people cannot control their emotions and also throw their mind powers to the wind, they step on the path of self destruction. I know so many people who have given themselves to cynicism. They look at absolutely everything in a cynical way. Cynicism is a very serious ‘spiritual’ disease that takes time to cure. The only worthy profession that those people can undertake is to become critics in some field or identify themselves as nihilistic philosopher.
That is how our society is destroyed far more than by war. The society is brought down by negative, pessimistic, cynical, nihilistic (blinded by disillusionment) way of thinking. They see life in the wrong way. Either they have too much of negative in life or they have been looking too much and the dark side of life. If that’s the case it is very natural for them to be cynics. However, I doubt if a life of a cynic is a happy one. I do agree that life consists of various colors, both light and dark ones. However, if you keep on looking at dark colors it will affect your way of thinking, beliefs, the way you feel, act and etc. Get cured from the disease by accepting positive way of thinking.
