Free Soul or Fair Soul: Choose One


'Present Day Youth' has opened a can of worms -  trying to reconcile free soul with fair soul. Under influence from modern day social pressures, we have adopted practices which in the longer run could shut self learning unless we work to hold onto our inner consciousness. 

Critics, notably the fair-soul (read ethical learning) enthusiasts, say these trends send the wrong signal and would put the future generations on a slippery slope towards fencing off happiness/satisfaction rather than engaging them towards happiness. Like many internal battles, the dispute pits the interests of resource consuming attitudes against those of us who wish to seek self realization and exposes the limits of our ability to spread our own wings over the usual social influences to live by the rules of our own system rather than a crafted social influences based living pattern worldwide. 

In practice, each of us put an artificial appearance on ourselves and seek entry - our passport to social acceptance. If I were to address this issue as a liberal fair soul enthusiast, it is our own fault that we land up in such a situation with our mind battling to choose between being a free soul or a fair soul. I consider being a fair soul holds more promise than being a free soul - in the longer run, you do not tend to lose yourself and stay connected, content and satisfied...Nothing is hard to achieve, impossible to conquer - try it! Find yourself again!
