Separation: The Mother of Frustration


Like a nation‘s immigration
So its mothers’ alienation
Strategy for protection
Through separation

Like a society’s identification
So its mothers’ justification
Need for appreciation
Through separation

Like a family’s condition
So its mother’s assertion
Status for position
Through separation

      • Hurtful, unacceptable, and unjustifiable, for me too. Trump would do harm also without the role of the president. With his current exposure, he is speeding up the process of opening the eyes of more people and therefore also provides an opportunity for learning. For example, he helps a lot in losing any doubt about how wrong certain things are, while less blatant politicians sometimes are not much better but try to maintain a decent picture, making it more difficult to argue against them. I am not promoting black-and-white thinking and extremism here (in contrast “Separation is the mother of frustration”), but apparently, perversities of our society seem to culminate, offering the way to new grounds. As said in other places as well, I just hope that this transition will happen without (too much) war.

      • I hear you. I understand that this infection of corporate control and degradation of values that trump has made a centerpiece of his “government” is opening eyes, but at the same time, I see that that decades of powerful corporate indoctrination has caused a destruction of creative thinking among millions of people in this country. Additionally, we have been conditioned to obey without question and trust the “strong” among (and not ourselves) which has created a society of mindlessly obedient subjects suffering from moral cowardice and intellectual laziness.

        I fear we might be stuck with those who see what’s going on being mostly armchair activists who vent frustration screaming at the television (or computer screen) but who refuse to hit the streets and make their voices heard loudly enough to make a difference.

        We’ll see. I’m hoping for a shift in awareness to help spread compassion and intellectual curiosity throughout the world.

      • I understand what you mean. Despite these negative signs though, all manipulation, distraction, and stupefaction cannot change human nature that includes a desire for fulfilling its positive potential. It’s difficult to know what exactly and how much of it will trigger a shift in awareness and expression of that human potential for kindness and meaning. Therefore, indeed, good that we don’t give up in believing in it:-) Thanks, as always, for your great engagement! All the best!

      • Grief is normal. But also (and I also know how it is to lose a beloved one), we need to learn that we are connected as a whole anyway and that we will ‘lose’ all material things of our lifetime anyway. Misery often comes from our denial of death as we live lives attached to external things and persons as if they and we existed forever. Being aware of our mortality is the big opportunity to grow personally, although it might not be easy at all. I’m sending you lots of energy!

      • Firstly, I am sorry to hear that you have lost your beloved one and secondly I agree that one day each of us has to go. What has come to earth must go after a specified time period but the thing is that we have had so much connectivity that person that it becomes really tough on their demise.
