It's A Small Small World


Just the other day, as a friend showed me his Facebook - the most used social networking website, an unnerving feeling just swamped me.  The intrigue of an intertwined social cohesion that fascinates me otherwise.  I was made to capture the attention of another consequence.  Of a smaller world.  Of who knows who.  Of an interactive communication, good or bad, amongst circle of friends.

With Facebook, users choose who are their friends based on their interests to connect and interact.  They share information and, willingly, inform their friends of their whereabouts and actions.  While there is always the joy to share ideas, social information and circles of friends - and there is nothing wrong with that, with the chosen few in the loop of their daily happenings,  the acts bring back memories of my past. 

Who knows, who cares?  I expect a decree of respect when a Facebook user adds another to serve the same purpose to form a community.  I consider for reasonable quality and condition formed into a state involving mutual dealings amongst them.  That their interests are homogenous and affecting common determinants for social enactment and awareness.

As my friend shared who knows who in his group, I wonder at the level of prevailing superficiality.  And, how shallowness is apparent.  A user whom he had resentment in the past, and whom he has no total trust today, is part of the group.  This user is allowed information sharing and participation.

As if by a great blow, the memory where I chose to 'go up the mountain' puts me back into a past condition.  There is a sudden strong feeling for sincerity.  For embodiment of emotions that is simple.  For a chance at nirvana.

I need friends for many reasons.  For them to comfort me when I am sad and to laugh with when I am glad.  For them to give me advise and whom I can count on.  For them to help me solve my troubles and to share good times so the joy is doubled.

I need friends for a mutual desire for companionship, and perhaps a common bond of some kind.  For a shared sense of caring and concern, a desire to see one another grow and develop and a hope for each other to succeed in all aspects of life.  To share thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement or negative criticism.

I need friends that I can spend time with - time to get to know each other, time to build shared memories, time to invest in each other's growth.

I need friends whom I can share my lives, thoughts, feelings and frustrations.  Friends that I can share my deepest secrets without worrying that those secrets will end up on the internet the next day.

I need friends who encourage one another and forgive one another where there has been an offence.

I need friends who look at the heart, not just the 'packaging'.  Not just for what it can get in return.

I wonder how Facebook can make amends.  Perhaps, it is only the superficial quality that lasts in our lifetime.  That a Man's deeper nature can never be known.  Perhaps, it is a higher ground for us to learn about life.  About how to forgive ourselves.  About how to deal with our emotions.  About how to live in both the positive and the negative.  About how we are gifts to the world around each other.
