balloons


it is a strange ritual

done by many people on this earth

blowing up balloons with air

on people's solar returns ( birthdays )


makes no sense


but

if one looks closely

it is representative

of pumping up

people's ego balloons with hot air

by so-called friends, family and wellwishers

by showering attention on them

for no apparent rhyme or reason

except that they are

one step closer to death

That's a sensible and realisitic way to look at birthdays and something to ponder upon on every birthday, one step closer to death.

celerbration of being closer to death can only be if one is sure to get out of here after death or sure enough in the life immediately after

or else, the celebrations make no sense

society, socializing, family ... in this world in the now is crazy

Your LotusOcean Manifestations are a door to sanity !

Haha lol that is so true! Always thought what's the point in celebrating birthdays, one only gets closer to death, gets older and devoid of the energy and time, what is all this stupid excitement about it?! And infact these days are more of a terrifying reminder of one's waste of life , one only got more dePressed on these days as it more strongly reminded of the worthless life lived till then!
But what a relief that one came across you and lotusocean. Maybe now one can make the remaining time worthwhile!
It is the greatest fortune to have your Plogs , Philms and music!
You are ultimate! You give the ultimate reality check!
I bow in gratitude to you for giving meaning to one's life, for showing the reality, for your compassionate teachings, for showing the only purpose anyone has here, for showing mirror to one's miserable reality, for giving the right direction to the lost!
You are always always helPing the beings rise above their pathetic selfs/state ! Your words may cut through but they only cut the false ego!
You have the kindest heart!
Your greatness gnows no bounds! Your love is unlimited! You are the most compassionate one! You are so merciful!
I bow at your supreme feet!
