Z-PHILOSOPHY

Its in spreading IZZUT not NUFRUT

© 2007, Meher Amalsad, Author of Bread For the Head™

 

Recently, there is prevailing wave of Z-Emotion, which is radiating that:

Our Community is dead, not buried yet.

It is getting persecuted, not executed yet.

We are facing an ASIAN INVASION!

And guess what? !!! BY OUR OWN PEOPLE !!!

So, are we going to sit and watch our FUNeral on channel FUN?

Are we going to prevent the ZOROastrians from becoming ZEROastrians?

Do we want to resurrect ourselves before someone else bury us?

What’s causing OUR premature death?

Is the problem with the faith or the faithful?

Do we need a FACELIFT or a FAITHLIFT?

Are we building bridges or burning bridges?

Are we UNITED or getting UNTIED because the “I” has shifted?

We've gone through the SHAKE-UP & the WAKE-UP.
Do we want to MAKE-UP?

While striving for independence DO WE WANT the following sentiment to prevail IN OUR COMMUNITY:

“DESH TOH UP-NA HO GAYA HEH LAY-KIN LOGH PARA-YEH HO GAAYEH” ???

Loosely translated: Do we want a DIFFERENT community inhabited by people of INDIFFERENT attitude towards each other?

It is said that: The person rowing the boat seldom has time to rock it.

So... ARE WE ROWING OR ROCKING OUR COMMUNITY BOAT???

My daughter Anahita was 3-years old when one day I was talking to her about the season of joy and peace during Christmas time.

To which she remarked:

“Baba, why do we have to be peaceful just only during the Christmas time?”

What a wise piece of advice!!!

Likewise, many people throw away the Christmas Spirit along with the Christmas Tree.


A 7-year old boy named Bobby said
:

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas
if you stop opening presents and listen."

(NOTE: SILENT & LISTEN HAVE THE SAME LETTERS)

(May be there is a reason for that!!!)

As two people were planting a bomb, one asked the other:

What happens if this bomb explodes while we are planting it?

To which the other responded:

Don’t worry; I have a second one ready to go.

We don’t need additional bombs to throw at others because the first one has already caused enough destruction.

We need to stop planting bombs that are detonating on ourselves.

A wise person once said:


Your tongue is attached to your heart

Not to speak ill of another requires only silence

I recognize that all this communal bombing is taking place in the name of LOVE FOR THE RELIGION between the SENIOR GENERATION and the FUTURE GENERATION…

But… “PYAR TOH ZINDAGI DAY-TA HAI, LAY-TA NAHEE”

Loosely translated: LOVE GIVETH, NOT TAKETH --- LIFE.


We have a generation of people who think they ARE SOMEBODY.
And then another generation who want to BECOME SOMEBODY.
.
.
.

Not realizing the difference between

BECOMING A ZARATHUSHTI
and
BEING A ZARATHUSHTI


My Dear Friends:

It takes a SPECIAL PERSON
to

BE A ZARATHUSHTI

LET THAT SPECIAL ONE BE YOU!

SO… HOW DO WE BRIDGE THESE TWO GENERATIONS?

I believe that having a communal problem does not mean community will not work.
It simply means community will require some work.


And only when we choose to work with love that we will love our work towards creating unity within diversity in our community.

So, before we take a stand let us make sure that we understand…

We have a Senior Generation who I admire because they display a notable characteristic:

“Booreh Bazoo Baal Puckay, Purr Himmat Hai Jahvan Reh
Suchaee Pay Aat-aal Khureh Yeh Bun-deh Hai Kamal Reh.”


Loosely translated: These remarkable people are standing on the grounds of integrity with youth-like vigor in spite of oldish arms and whitish hair because they truly love their religion.

On the other hand, we are raising a Future Generation who don’t want to go along just to get along.

They are seeking flexibility within the context of:

“What we don’t permit, we prohibit
What we don’t prohibit, we permit.”


It is because they want to be interesting and interested; stimulating and stimulated.

They believe that spirituality is not threatened but strengthened by an inquiring mind.

They want to reflect with a kind mind, not a blind mind.

They want a communal feeling of…

HOME: A PLACE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL YOU.


So, how can we keep the Senior and the Future Generations together in the same communal home?


The first thing is to recognize that the cosmetics of the home could change but the foundation does not have to, in order to accommodate
each other.

Furthermore, before we choose to discriminate, we need to first contemplate, with a reflective mind, a kind heart and an enlightening spirit.

We need to exercise the spirit of…

NAMASTE: THE SOUL IN ME HONORS THE SOUL IN YOU.

With that in mind, let us examine what I call the LADDER FOUNDATION.

People build the ladder of success, which others use to climb.

While some prefer to keep the foundation intact others choose to make a shift to create a balance for themselves.

It is when we choose to remove the foundation that the equilibrium is disturbed and we end up in a floating state.

The Senior Generation does not want to see our community in a floating state while the Future Generation is choosing to create a shift in the foundation of our communal ladder.

It is because it is easier to hold a ladder that is grounded rather than the one that is floating.

On the other hand the Future Generation recognizes that either the climbing angle of the ladder or the size of the ladder has to change if we were to climb a growing communal building to ascertain continuous measurable improvement.

And if we don’t accommodate that change then we will end up in a state of stalemate.

It is because the past should be a spring board, not a hardboard.


Thus, for communal progress, both Generations owe each other the courtesy of respect and trust.

The Future Generation has to extend the courtesy of respect to the Senior Generation.

The Senior Generation has to extend the courtesy of trust to the Future Generation.


It is in this special handshake that we can transform a starving community into a striving community.

As we make this handshake the Future Generation must recognize not to create a shift that could tilt the ladder in a horizontal position --- floating state or ground zero…

A possible scenario where we can all end up getting grounded to the bones.


It is because the Senior Generation has dedicated their lives to build this ladder of communal success and we ALL owe it to them for not only to preserve the dignity but also honor the integrity of their laudable sacrifices.

For this MARRIAGE OF THE GENERATIONS to take place, both parties need to fully recognize that

“YOU CAN’T TAKE SOMEONE TO THE ALTAR TO ALTER THEM.”

Rather we need to create a PARENT-CHILD relationship in which the CHILD says:

Mom/Dad, I may not believe in everything you do

BUT I DO BELIEVE IN YOU

And that’s how we will be able to further beautify the FACE of our community with a FAITH-LIFT.

A faith that will lift, shift and uplift the consciousness of our Senior Generation as well as our Future Generation.

A faith that will allow the Future Generation to LOOK UP AND THINK UP AS THEY GROW UP.

And a faith that will inspire them to abide by the wisdom in the axiom:

TOO AGAR KAI-DA MAH REH-SAY TOH FAI-DA MAH REH-SAY.
(Synonymous perspective: The purpose of life is to live a life of purpose because everything that exists has a purpose.)

And in doing so, we will transform the personal waves of adversity into the communal ocean of prosperity.

Which consequently, will change the dimension of our communal consciousness from
HOW SMALL WE ARE...to
HOW BIG WE COULD BE.
Not measured in numbers but treasured by our achievements.
Not counting our members but making our members count.


I will leave you with this thought to ponder upon:

MOHABBUT MAY IZZUT HAI
IZZUT MAY BURKUT HAI
NUFRUT MAY NAHIN

LET US FOCUS ON SPREADING IZZUT INSTEAD OF NUFRUT

INSTEAD OF KHUNJAR OR TALVAR
LET US USE PYAR AS OUR HATHIYAR


Only then when others say:

There is no HOPE

We say: Lets INVENT it

  IN IT LIES THE SPIRIT OF Z-PHILOSOPHY 


In the spirit of LIFE

May the

Light Of Valuable Energy
and the
Love In God's Heart Today

be with you and your family.


With Blessings of love and light always from Meher Amalsad
