Tiger philosophy lesson 139: Official week against loneliness

It is said that 25% of Dutch population suffers from loneliness. According to my understanding 100% of us are lonely, depressed and are at the edge of insanity. The only difference in between those who really experience it and those who APPARANTLY don’t is the strategy they are using.

Why do we feel lonely ? Those of us who are not feeling lonely jet, have occupied our self with so much garbage that we never are really confronted with our loneliness. We are busy all the time, with our work, studies and our social activities. We have no time to get in contact with our loneliness. It is a strategy and a fear at the same time to avoid contact with our self.

If we would take away all our activities just for one month and bring us in a situation in which we are confronted with our self. Where we would be forced to look at the poor quality of our most important relationship, the relationship with our self. We would notice it is a marriage which has become suicidal.

For me it is not a small accusation on a society in which it is said that 25% of the people are lonely!

How can we feel lonely even when we are surrounded by 1000 of people continuously? It is like one loneliness is meeting other loneliness in all our activities. One of the root causes we feel lonely is the superficiality of relationship we experience. It is not so strange that we admire programs like“friends” , “sex and the city” and a like. They represent a higher form of superficiality with which we as society have started to identify. We need to look carefully at how we relate to each other. The quality of relationships at society level can only increase if we are ready to improve our relationship with our self .

If we do not increase the quality of relationship with our self we as society are bound to become lonely , depressed and insane.

Official week against loneliness.

Tiger philosophy lesson 137: Proposition of the devil!

One night when I was sleeping my deepest sleep, the devil descended upon me and offered me a proposition. Before he started he said, “here is the deal, you have to choose me instead of god to be your savior”. He seemed serious and I was interested in his proposition. I said to the devil, “ it all depends on the proposition you offer. I am like a prostitute, for enough money I will do anything”.

The Devil continued…..

Devil: I will make you feel loved by the whole of the humanity, I will give you true love which you cherish so much!
Me: Will everybody love me for no reason, will I abide in the hearts of strangers, will I feel absolutely unity with my love, where there is no question of “you” and “I” but only “we” exists as a single entity?
Devil: yes

Devil: I will make you the most intellectual person of the world, , all the knowledge will be in you!
Me: Will I know answer to everything that is to know, will I not struggle to get answers to the deepest questions of life, will I lead a life of all knowing in this ignorant world?
Devil: Yes

Devil: I will make you the happiest man of the world, full of joy, full of self-confidence and without any doubt or fear!
Me: Will I be able to do anything I like, without any hesitation without any fear, will I never experience insecurity, will I stand among the bravest man of the world?
Devil: Yes, much higher then the bravest of them!

Devil: I will create greatest friendships and relationships for you!
Me: Will I have no doubt on any of my friendships anymore, will I know that I have full support of all the –ships, will I never have to worry that somebody will leave me alone ?
Devil: Yes

Devil: I will make you achieve any goal you set your hearth upon, you will be the best in anything you touch.
Me: Will I never fail or lose a challenge, will I not know what is disappointment ever, will I never shed tears of failure because I wanted it so badly.
Devil: Yes

Devil: I will create paradise for you everywhere you go, you will experience eternal peace and pleasures in any directions your feet set off!
Me: Will I never be bored again, will I always have fun and experience enjoyment, will I never feel depressed or unhappy, will I not wonder how it would be if I had more?
Devil: Yes yes

Devil: I will make you the healthiest man of earth, you will not experience old age, you will enjoy eternal youth.
Me: Will I not even grow one day older for all the eternity, will no cell in my body die or decay, will I not experience decease’s of any kind, will I be for eternity attractive healthy and youthful, will I not experience death, pain or misery?
Devil: Yes yes yes

“Choose now or remain silence for all it’s eternity”, the devil vanished after these last words.
