CONNECTEDNESS TO DISCONNECTEDNESS

Connectedness to disconnectedness

One is the dimension of connectedness and the other is the dimension of disconnectedness. So there are two clear dimensions. Oneness exists in the dimension of connectedness; the other dimension is devoid of any oneness. This dimension of disconnectedness will always have the boundary lines. Sometimes the boundary lines are bold and strong, other times these boundary lines may be very thin and weak, it is for sure that the dimension of disconnectedness is characterized by the dividing boundary lines. There is no benefit in temporarily blurring these boundary lines. These lines can never be diffused. Pretending that these lines are deleted cannot graduate anybody to connectivity. You may exit from disconnectivity and arrive at oneness, this may be a possibility but pretending that the dividing lines are absent and yet living in disconnectivity will be proved futile.

These dividing lines have their functions, however weak and thin they are, you neither have to delete them nor exaggerate them. Personal identities, respective functions and corresponding forms are here to stay. These lines give definitions, characteristics and features that enable you to recognize the context. There is beauty in the diversities and the variety of behaviours and expressions. Nobody has ever succeeded in standardizing all the people. There can never be an absolute uniformity for the living style of all the people, though certain functions are common to the whole of creation and specific species, much discord and differences are inevitable.

How to learn to move through this realm of crisis and chaos?

Many social systems have already evolved their own methods of rules, regulations and norms. But in your day-to-day living, haven’t you seen people who are reluctant to comply? What can you expect when you hire a taxi, is it just a vehicle to move from point A to point B, some claim that it is justifiable that , the driver does not know the route, a multi channel FM radio or an air conditioner. A passenger may even claim the taxi must have a digital meter that displays kilometer reading and the fare.

But has your experiences been different from your expectations? Are your interactions and trade found on trust or distrust? Do all the parties involved in one transaction adhere to single guidelines, which is common to all?  In such cases, to what extent, can you invest in due diligence.

Neither can you make corrections continuously in all your interactions nor can you be perpetually curious to learn the solutions. You have to submit to the doctrine that honesty, integrity, ethics and morals are also existing in the dimension of disconnect. Ethos, refinement and aesthetics of what you call as ‘art’, are also in this geography of disconnect. How much are you investing in learning these thin lines? Any mannerism that expresses oneness will be temporary, if you do not exit from the disconnect.  Can there world without ‘ Lakshman rekha’?

Mutual benefit, value-add and co-existence is possible when there is clarity and there are indicators of the ‘lakshman rekha’. Though connectivity is energizing, the practicality of the energy is in the dimension of the ‘Lakshman Rekha’.

So how to have the harmony in this tangible realm. Human energy has the potential to learn and also the potential to avoid learning. Here too there is a thin line which ensures the fine balance, you either decide to be nurtured or to be pampered.

You can chase comforts and conveniences by establishments or commitments. This is your checklist, which you can use or ignore. In this dimension you are in-charge in making decisions. How can ‘blame’ exists when you have positioned yourselves as the cause of your world. Are you ready to get your feet on street and hands busy? It is your own energy that you can use to create your own resources. This sincerity, discipline and security of learning of your living will ensure your progress.

In this maturity alone can you exit the disconnect and then arrive at a sustainable connectivity.

HOW YOUNGISTHAN THINKS ?

One thing that was abundant in the early twenties was ‘time’. A lot of time to discuss career, aspirations and then to set goals. Though many make such orientations from the age of seventeen itself, yet the mould may be incomplete. There are distractions.  Impatience, rebelliousness and curiosity may be the most evident expressions, but yet, these are only to suggest that the youth are unstoppable.  But then why to create any bottlenecks at all. The youth needs avenues and immense freedom to explore. Their adventurousness needs much recognition. The youth may just be seeking validations and attention from people. This appeal to be acknowledged defines their character the most.

The youth are most at disadvantage when they are also discovering their own changing features. They have to come to terms with how their mental faculties are evolving. Simultaneously, they are also etching and elbowing their personal position in the social milieu. The youth of today has immense access to search engines. The information explosion has enabled the youth to access data. But the intrigue is the ability of their mind to process the data.

The mind of the youth is exposed to over ten Giga bytes of data every day. This data-impact on tender minds can hasten the wear and tear of the intellect and memory. Moreover, much data, though creates an imprint on impressionable minds, yet are not of much direct utility in progress of its consumer. The young consumer of data though is much informed, yet may be using only up to forty percent of the stored data in their minds.     

So, now we have many a peculiar situations. The youth has to tackle, dodge and then to deal with multiple complexities of option and opportunities. The conventional norms of relationships are transforming into modern methods of complex relationships among peers. Many elders seem to be ill equipped to be counseling stations to the gen next. 

The restlessness needs direction. Ambitions have to be articulated.  Aspiration must be achievable.

The youth has much potential, not only to perform and excel, but also to inspire the older generation. Some youth have taken up themselves to be a guide to the senior citizens. Many senior citizens seem to have missed the digital revolution. The new world of computerized and digitalized services has handicapped the elderly.  The latest communication gadgets, security procedures and documentations that require biometric scanning is a foreign world to the people above seventy years of age.  Many young people are volunteering to visit the elderly who are lonely and help them back to the world of today.

This is how the youth are moulding their character. Such broadening of the mind, so as to participate in the lives of the elderly brings many benefits. It shapes the attitude and approach of maturity. The perception of the young people then, takes multi-cultural dimensions.

Much experience of the elderly then becomes the education of interactive skills to the young listeners. The society then bridges its generation gap.

Many youth who have already chosen to volunteer to the cause of updating the elderly are showing progressive traits. They seem to be more innovative and convey a good level of satisfaction. They enhance their ability to bridge the gaps in the time of conflict and stress.

The youth updates the elderly and in turn, the older people enrich the generation next.  The synergy is total and contagious. A marvelous sense of social well-being can be achieved.

The elderly in contrast seems to have very little time. The perceived scarcity of time makes the elderly, dwell in values, ethics and morals of good living. Now the youth has source of reference. The access to maturity and the innocent energy both together is an envy of any social watcher and behavioral auditor.

The youthful enthusiasm will then come-forth with progressive enterprises. The entrepreneur of today has vibrancy and dynamism.

Sports, entertainment, professionalism and other vocations will get its competent workforce, from this generation. The perceived goodness, maturity, innovation, enterprise and enthusiasm are all the correct ingredient for flourishing of industry and thriving of social harmony.

The practices of body stretches, breathing techniques and meditation are also appropriately fitting into the gen next lifestyle. Fitness and knowledge of the mind and other profound wisdoms are giving to the youth, their much needed cool quotient.  Association to a life guru has become trendy. The youth has arrived into this world of information technology, at the times of knowledge industry. Being responsible for social service is seen as good value- add.  Values of sharing and caring are providing the feel good factor.

The youth are here to drive this change. They are capable of transforming the fragmented and shabby societies into wholesome and hygienic societies. The youth are ushering in the revolution of holistic wisdom. These are the informed people. They are claiming what they deserve.  They are setting their vision accurately farther. They know no limits. They cannot be stopped till their target is achieved. The youth are working to free people from ignorance.

You can choose to fit in too. The social harmony can return. Career, industry, economy, science and all learnings can flourish. The secrets are out, and they have become known.

Welcome to the present. We are here today. The moment is young. So get this new perspective.

 Let us make it happen. Learn from the youth and let us back them up. When we support them, we can all move forward together.
