The culture of "Good News"

I am appalled at the evolution of humans to a culture of delivering “good news” when there isn’t any. Why do we constantly, subconsciously crave and drive ourselves to the point of desolation, just in pursuit of what we perceive as “good news” that we want to deliver, at the primal level to ourselves, in the disguise to a feeling of well being and cool with all the surroundings around us.
Have we forgotten that the basic instinct to survive is to understand what we are? and importantly beyond us as a person, into getting in harmony with the environment around us! That’s what we called as evolution with peaceful coexistence. (and yes harmony does not mean mutating, its just harmony!)

It takes courage to face the truth, more to look into the eye and say the same, and the greatest to say to our “own-self”. Does a disguise of a pretentious refusal of reality, just change the world – No it doesn’t – On the contrary, you loose the very ground you loose one.

What ever happened to the twinkle in the eye at the start of the race, when we all set forth, looking into the sun with hope, of a constant endeavor to work our way through, to finally look back and say – It was a good ride. Do a few clouds burst the bubble – if yes, was the good news - the burst, the bubble or the cloud?
Depending on who we are, and what we are made up of, we equate the “good news” as the brilliant bubble that existed, or the burst of reality that dawned on us, or the cloud that was responsible for the change in the environment. The truth of the matter, we are still on the same ground.

I remember these wonderful lyrics – hmm..

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life


...and why whine, when there is no “good news” to deliver?– Its still a wonderful world, wonderful life, wonderful being there at the moment. There is a lot more to discover in each other, that we deal with – The world is still a much bigger place. Do we really need to hate “humans” in general?
