I suddenly heard this old tune, and ironically, it all became very clear – Confusion is our problem.
One of the more interesting ways of looking at the situation in Iran, is to look at the various balls of confusion, that exist, that prevent Iranians, to organize and improve themselves.
Conspiratory theorists would say, there are people or organizations. Wrong. They are not behind all this confusion making – but they say they started it all.
Ok, so which people or organizations are that pretend to be confusing of all the balls of confusion, that preoccupies the Iranian mind forever and forever? Let’s look at how it starts.
This holiday season, you meet others, and you ask questions. You settle on questions that produce more questions. You don’t mention your problems, but ponder over global reasons for your questions. That’s how it starts.
You then both give up. You open up the famous Oracle of Hafez, and Tarot cards. You look for signs that give you clues to paths you might want to take to avoid the global problems. But it is vague. You start to go mad.
Ah. Bless. You are stressed. All those questions seriously blew your mind. It is worse than a thump in the head. The head-ache is self inflicted. And guess what, the madness continues.
So you say to yourself “what if I pledge myself to a belief?”. You subscribe to a global belief, in the hope to relieve the head-ache of questions you created. A new set of questions creep in, and you can’t stop. The madness grows.
That is what has happened to Iran. We had serious confusion from the moment Khomeini appeared in the news, and the Shah died. Disorientation and confusion took over the leadership. They blamed others, they subscribed to global beliefs. Global leaders benefited from the madness that took over the country.
But now it is all much clearer. There is less guessing, as less people learnt to become fools by asking foolish question. They are in charge of their own lives. No more blaming others in confusion. Sanity has taken over madness.
This Nowruz we don’t ask those silly questions. We know who we are, and what Good questions to ask. The Righteous do what they have to do, according to what is right to do. It’s all Good and sane.
Avesta states be practical and respect the seven principles of Life (Fire), Matter (Earth), Passion (Water), Law (Air), People, Animals, Plants. They are guarded by Angels called Amesha Sepanta (and the S in Haftseen comes from that). It helps you to never be confused or blame. You learn apply yourself to your world. The simple solution shines through and you will sanely see.
Let’s say you have an idea. This is the attitude you need. Follow the oldest rule. See if it passes The Good Thought, Good Words, Good Deeds test. Share your thought and apply it in the real world. Act on it. It’s a Can do, Will do attitude. No room for confusion. You will see that if it can be done, it is meant to be. You grab that ball of truth and you wack it in a home run. Yeah!
Happy Nowruz to all and thank you for reading my blogs.
