Those Who Are Excluded
by ‘abd al-‘abru
Virtually the same personality type(s) in all cultures & countries & successive generations stoke these exchanges of violence & mayhem; at bottom, the Sufis state, this is nothing more than a rather frantic self-indulgence in self-importancy.
It is engaged in mainly by people who by definition are excluded from any further meaningful involvement with the Future & paradoxically then fly into a rage with one another about their MUTUAL albeit vague feeling of…nonentity.
This, however, is the fate of all Life in a World that, again by definition, must leave us all behind; and, in the degree of acceptance of it lies the test of any comparative ‘maturity’ in individuals:
Some weep & others rage.
