Someone asked me if it would be ‘sensible’ to ‘pray’ to our ‘forefathers’ given that past, present and future, all exist simultaneously in the time field.
Interesting question. I admit that. But too naive and average and an oxymoron.
If one really tries putting much of a thought into it, there is no use praying to your forefathers.
You could just spend that much more time calling your future self out loud over and over, hoping them to listen and answer your questions.
If you are ready to accept the fact that past, present and future, all exist simultaneously in the time field, don’t you think it would be a little contradictory for you to be praying to someone to look out for you rather than just knowing what will happen and when?
Moreover, time travel hasn’t come into existence yet. So, how about just trying to work hard in order to be better and have a better life instead of praying for it to someone who doesn’t exist or someone who is separated from you by not miles or light years, but ‘Worlds’?
Doesn’t really make sense. Does it?
Praying is for the weak and stupid. You want to achieve something, you work for it. You learn more than others can even think of. You get so good at what you do that no matter how big of a jerk you are, people always ask for you instead of someone who is pleasing, social, and not a jerk.
Say, you go to a doctor with an undiagnosed and bizarre health problem. Woud you want your doctor to be social, people-pleaser, believer and have no idea about what’s wrong with you, or would you like him to diagnose you and treat you while being a jerk?
Choice is yours!
You can either choose to be so good at your job that people don’t give a crap about your social skills, or you can be a piece of crap or merely average (like others) at what you do and be someone who is good to others, prays to god, believes, etc.
Just know one thing:
When things go South, neither god nor your forefathers will come to rescue you from your sinking ship.
P.S. Prayers and words don’t help. Actions and knowledge does. Knowing things is better than not knowing things.
