I borrowed a series of pictures from all over the net, also the background sounds of rain and thunder together with a favourite pice of Beethoven. It's an attempt to create an artificial memory of a day in my life when i sat around listening to Beethoven and philosophying in my usual manner when im that kind of mood in solitude with my own thoughts. When the weather changed just as the second movement began. It was one of those moments you have for yourself that holds a greater meaning to life than to anyone else, if you would just mention it to them in words. It's also one of those moments when i understood perhaps with even more clarity than before why i always held Beethoven as my favourite composer.

Waking up to the fact that life is more than our egoistical pursuits of convinience in consumerism and materialism that destroyes this world, and instead realizing that we are soul and not body. That seems to become clear first when one learns how to let go and being able to adapt modesty as a virtue and enjoy the little things in life. It is a crime being comitted everyday in our lives, not only against the body but more gravely so against our souls. Religions never ceases to lure and snare the weaker spirits, while society dulls the bodies of the weak minds. One speaks of forgiveness and salvation, the other contentment in trinkets and toys, both with the promise of ultimate happiness.

Rationalizing freedom for the easeness of letting other ideas, people or things to guide and rule your life. Or really choosing to embrace personal freedom and responsibility of not closing ones eyes to evil, corruption and falsehoods fully, is equally as hard as living it. But the hard road is also the one to lead to ultimate happiness and enlightenment. Shortcuts to that goal is something people have strived toward with any other means disposible, and ruined both themselves and nations in the process. Self sacrifice and enduring pain with patience in the name of justice, peace and truth. Is not the worst thing that a person should fear as a burden and punishment. It was once considered virtues among leaders of men, and not only do we think highly of those people now in our times, we lay weight behind our words with use of theirs. And we also reflect and remember when countries and peoples were held in higher esteems and honour than we do in these times.

Lean back, relax and contemplate.
