Two Oceans Of People



They say there is a red ocean,

An ocean full of strife and conflict.

Everyone is in this ocean,

Everyone is to fight, to compete, and win!

The world is real, merciless and cruel,

Don't daydream and expect too much,

Get ready to fight, to conquer, and to win.

And so the many plots and subplots....

The many schemes and scams....

The many intrigues and controversies....

Strategize, strategize, strategize....

Plan many moves ahead of your opponents,

We are in a competition, and we must win!

If we lose, we die!

We must tackle our enemies every move and twitch,

We must tear them apart and cut them to pieces,

No turning back, no more mercy.......

The survival of the fittest is all that really matters.

And so, many conquer and win and continue to conquer,

And so, many are conquered and lose the war,

They are badly defeated, disgraced....,

And they die and perish.......

They call it the reality of life,

They say that is what sensible and mature people would do,

And so the red ocean is ever covered with blood and bloodshed,

Many people have fallen bankrupt....

Many business foreclosures....

Many take on vengeful and roaring spirits....

Many die unsatisfied, with their many dreams unfulfilled....

Many have developed unhappy relationships....

Many have very broken families....

Many faced failed marriage....

Many have confusing family histories with their illicit and unholy affairs.......

The consequences are very tragic and dramatic.......

Many feel really disgraced and disgusted of the world they live in.......

They go to their dream world......

A place to escape, unwind, relax, reflect...... and rest in peace.

How sad to see and behold the red ocean of people.......where humans become self-centered, distanced from everything and everyone else, fundamentally interested only in their own worlds of conflicts and wars, thus become “individuated individuals”.......

Nothing else seems to matter to them anymore....

And no one else seems to matter to them anymore....

What matters most is only "Conquer! And Win!"

Then someone cries, "Out there there is a blue ocean...."

Many turn their heads around!

They are surprised!

"Everyone does what they want out there...."

"Everyone says what they want out there...."

"Everyone thinks what they want out there...."

Many leave the red ocean and rush to the blue ocean.

"No more dreams...."

"Just sit down, relax and enjoy.... the Blue Ocean"

And so God gives us two oceans.......

We have now two oceans of people.

Which one do you prefer?
