Philosophy Wire: What does the soul seek? Or else: The importance of being powerless.

Immigrating birds passing through Greece, having a small stop to rest...

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-05-07]: We live and we die. In all of our lives we know what to do because someone told us, to whom their parents told them in turn and so on and so forth. We all behave in specific ways, act and react to specific things, try to do “something”. And while many wander about the great goals life has set for us, in reality what we want is simple: Love. A touch, a smile, a hug, the sense that someone cares for us. Even the most powerful man of the world does everything he does in order to feel something. Something the most powerless men of the world already have. Some people believe they have power, but it is the people under their power, the “simple people”, who actually have it. Why should anyone be involved in politics, if he has people who love him and care about him? People who no matter how bad things are, will hold him tight and smile at him? Our soul seeks the unification with One, the unification with others. When you achieve that, you become invincible. You may die, be poor, be sick, but you are loved. Why change things when you already have everything? What would you seek if you have found what you want? From the rooms of Congress, to the dirty streets of Bronx, the truth is somewhere in the middle… Nuh. Just kidding! It is in the Bronx! Think about it. What do you seek?
