It’s absolutely necessary… for individuals to go mad.. everyday if possible… and make it a habit.. a regular habit.. a habit as regular as the religiously devout disciplines himself to prayer… prayer possibly to prevent oneself from going insane…Perhaps the individual has a deep sensing of the chaotic world within him… possibly divergent chaotic worlds..worlds pulling him in different directions… Add relations into this brewing pot… Fearfully or hoping against hope.. the individuals prays that through a miracle their individuality and the relationship sustains… that it withstands the test of time…

Further society portrays itself to be sane…Cover the muck…nurse a curse..but mutter sanity….and society appreciates this “cultivated individual”…portrays it as a maturity… This maturity portrayed by society is crass..

Come to think of it.. in the animal kingdom… has any animal ever gone mad…do animals have mental asylums?? where the cranky old lion goes for a mental health check??

Yes, they do go wild…madly wild..they go wild to the extent their potential permits…and fortunately they don’t have the religious one or the wise one amid-st their lot to proclaim this is SIN and that is NOT…. The Gods shall punish you to a lifetime of hell….They simply are wholly wild…no regrets…No one to reprimand… induce guilt…

Lets learn from the animal kingdom for a change…Lets forget about all the jargon and beautifully cultivated shit that the self proclaimed religious proclaim…Shit is shit after-all…

Find some time of “you time” daily or whenever you feel like….feel the impulse.. and immediately get down to madness.. Screw the thought that arises.. what would others think of my new found insanity…what would my family and kids think… chomp on these and other such constricting thoughts….

For a minuscule duration during the day.. whenever you feel the urge… go mad… become an animal.. howl…bark…growl…yelp..screech and shout with all the intensity.. ..U are totally alone…let instances which were forced on you through induced guilt.. through direct or indirect manipulation… through back stabbing or lobby politics.. through exploitation of innocence..through comparison..through insensitivity…all surface…and shout it out…be vocal..be expressive..cry it out…Give it back to existence.. and Existence is all so loving.. it simply accepts..

Existence always wanted “you to be you“.. Only you had this crazy idea implanted that you need to be someone else…Unknowingly..most of the times..

This letting go… this becoming an animal again… totally expressive.. totally hot… totally wild…totally in the moment… has a totally transforming experience on the individual.. the burden of expectation that “masks of society” expects from an individual is torn to shreds…and one moves closer to himself for the very first time…

This madness.. this space of madness is needed for individuals not in relationships… and for individuals in relationships…Come to think of it… even in relationships… the individuality is still of paramount importance for each individual…

Folks in relationship or marriage take out their irritations on each other..its the most natural and unconscious act to do..it happens of its own accord.. what else can they do, but take it out on the one closest to them, the one they spend max time with?? All their frustrations, disappointments, anxieties manifest itself through words…words which hurt.. words akin to a  stab…words which amplify illusions and belief patterns… about the other no longer being the one he or she earlier was…about no longer being caring or loving as earlier..

Sounds familiar :-)… Well the fault lies with neither.. The fault lies in failing to understand human behavioral patterns through centuries ..the failing to understand oneself.. and then trying to decipher and understand the other…without even understanding oneself??

If one realizes this in his lifetime, his life has achieved a quantum jump…a qualitatively significant realization has dawned on him.. and the journey begins..

To experience the higher… one needs to understand the lower…

To experience God… one needs to understand the devil within..

To understand the devil, one needs to be an animal too…

Existence does not differentiate between its creations… Animals are on par with humans… Unfortunately humans do differentiate…and let go this wonderful opportunity… to learn from their animal brethren…

(Fast Rhythmic music/drums playing is conducive) during this exercise of insanity…
