Who cares to listen…?

This is a fragment from an earlier post:

Once, travelling by train in Romania, I met a shepherd. A down to earth but very astute man.
He told me that he once was in the mountains with his sheep and dogs.
Two colleagues of his were there too with their flock. Out of the blue a roaring
helicopter noise came from the other side of the mountain.
It created such a panic among the sheep, so they started running berserk all over that mountain plateau.
ONE OF THEM WAS HEADING TOWARDS THE DANGEROUS CLIFFS,
AND EVENTUALLY THREW ITSELF IN THE PRECIPICE.

Instantly, all the other sheep were hysterically following the poor animal towards the abyss.
These three men and their dogs were desperately trying to prevent the flock from what
seemed an unstoppable disaster. They managed in the end to save just a one-third of the sheep.

TRYING TO SAVE THEMSELVES, MOST OF THOSE STUPID ANIMALS
WENT BLINDLY INTO SUDDEN DEATH.

The analogy is undoubtedly quite clear here, isn´t it…? It is exactly what happens in the human realm:
Millions of sightless people are hysterically heading towards a dire fate, and yet they don´t see it…

In fact, THEY REFUSE TO SEE IT.

I can´t pretend I am shepherd – there was one before me who called himself that -,
but if I am to save anyone, I think I HAVE TO LEARN TO BARK.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
