Learn to Unlearn
Take note, this is my space. I write about that which my community puts on to my mind and about the feelings that my community creates for our experiences. Whenever I read from my people, I humbly oblige to write. Specifically here, today, it has been almost two years since my last such compliance, but not on my Facebook page, where I broadcast by means of graphic art. Of all that I am reading from my people, I am writing as it shows, but for the confession of my own imaginations and feelings, I submit there is a God with a massive appearance.
Now that I have been reading from my people, it is clear that my people are dividing themselves. I am strongly persuaded to say that they are dividing themselves to satisfy the way they have learnt to think about themselves. Sad as it feels, these divisions have made my people to selectively hate each other, thinking that they are justifying their differences from each other. Nonetheless, we may not lay blame on them, since social discrimination is symptomatic unreasonableness. Surely we can rest the blame on what they have grown to believe in for all of their lives and that which, far before they were born, was made to be their source of their strength, the pride of not being similar to each other.
My people and I have unreasonably found respect to our false differences. Maybe because our convictions are too limited to think further outside from our home Earth. Could we be that so short sighted to believe that what matters most is that which makes us look like we are different from each other. Have we inherited social classes in order to limit our imaginations. Maybe we take pride in shallow minded divisions, in order to sponsor our egoism, self-importance and lack of consideration for each other. Do we have interests beyond my continent, my country, my tribe, my family or it has to be about my religion, my race, my church, my ancestors, my heritage or only my language, my culture, my people or otherwise it must just be about myself. My people, no matter what you call it today, racism, apartheid, xenophobia, regionalism, tribalism, feminism, segregation, nepotism or individualism, learn to unlearn it.
My people, it matters most when we divide ourselves between ourselves, because we create tall walls against ourselves. Divisions make us think we are not related to each other. Could we start to think about our collective development. Or be reminded that a divided community is starved of peace and love, but only wilts in artificial joy. My people, when we dis-join, we cause a vicious circle around ourselves. And so, we cannot put all of our energy to divide ourselves and then stop to work together against our common challenges; hunger, poverty and disease. It is so sad that when we are a foolish people, we die by lack of knowledge.
Now that we can learn to unlearn, we have the chance to unlearn all our selfish values and cultures. We can learn to forgive kindly and to stand down to violence. We can unlearn anger and bitterness. We can learn to speak slowly and to listen carefully to our own words. Yes, we can learn to be together and we can learn together our duty to love each other. Now that we can unlearn, then we can learn to feel peaceful and learn to spread joy. Learn to unlearn, because this is our space and not my space.
