Simple truth about what we do in life

11 June 2014, 07:52 Jibunor George Chuks

Life, as beautiful as it is, humans have chosen to operate as a small g(god). This word as g(god) is meant to be understood as a small god which those people who chose not to believe in God(pagans) worship or those people who are not Christians or Muslims or other religions who believed in God.

There was a novel which is titled “The gods must be crazy” these people believed in one common goal. They must be the most content people in the world. They have no crime, no punishment, no violence, no laws, no police, judges, rulers or bosses. They believed that the gods put only good and useful things on the earth for them to use.

I have one story of what happened to one of my friends, just recently. A friend of mine in the university, who actually resumed late after registration and then he was compelled to pay the late registration fees and other departmental fees. Trying to sign all the necessary course forms were still difficult because the final office which he could go to get the signature before submission were actually an office of a senior lecturer. He had waited on so many occasions but every time that he came, he missed with the woman. Few days before the closure of the registration, he had already made up his mind to wait as much as he can. Early morning, he had come and was waiting close to her door. Lucky enough for him, the woman was just coming to work. After she had settled down in her office, the guy walked in and presents his course form for the woman to sign for him, then for him to submit. But the woman said to him and other students, “please go and come back later, I am just coming to work”. The guy was so disappointed and he angrily left. Just a signature on a course form, the woman turned to small god, feeling that she is in charge “the boss” forgetting she did not wake up and see herself in that position(small god).

Man has consumed himself with power, fame and pride. The Inspector General of police (IG), asking Mr President to extend his stay in office because his time to leave office is near. Not satisfied with power, man wishes to rule and remain in power till death do them part or nothing at all separate them with power. But if only roses where wishes. We must learn to be humble, nobody will remain on this planet. So, the power we seek is simply vanity. God bless us.
