Humans and Paradoxes

The human experience is pregnant with paradoxes and for so many people out there life is itself a simulation of paradoxes, a marriage of comic pleasantness with tragic fists of truth, and other complexities sprayed all over the experience. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair." When Charles Dickens wrote these lines who would have known that human experience is gonna replay the same human drama over and over every two three decades. Wars, extinctions, sufferings, and on the other side a boom of pleasurable progress, a rainbow of opportunities, and a silent rushing truth always going back and forth: human life is suffering and then the same human life revolves around happiness and calmness.

When we have a look on the situation around we see that we can see death and fear alive, walking outside in the streets, and marketplaces, we can see that we were childish to think that having dreams and working for them to materialize was the only reality. We were to face the multifaceted suffering and to see it punching us while we are tied to the conditions of necessities. We seem like we are facing the world war of stupidity and the scientific revolution of intelligence and information. We are scared, excited, stupefied, and overwhelmed, but we have to stand up to the situation. 

Humans are harmed one way or the other, and at the same time we are in a better position to decide, to act, to unite, and move towards the peace we vision, and the prosperity we dream of. We survived all of the crises back in times and now we are more capable and experienced to pass through all this; what we need to do is have extra hearts for fellow humans, stand for each other, and against the evil that promises to devour every single good thing of us, of our collective as a whole.

Worst times give us the chance to have blitz-spirit, always. 

The CoVid' 19 has injected us with a dose of harsh promises to make and hard choices to opt. We, as humans, need each other more than ever. The crises we used to read and study about when we were young are now here in our balconies and alleys. People are fighting due to religions, due to difference of interests, due to lack of empathy, but at the same time we are all in this together.
