A sta cemo sa odrzivim razvojem svesti? / And what about sustainable development of the mind?

12 Oct

  Scroll down for english

Ok možda je vreme da prestanem pričati sama sa sobom i da se obratim svetu. U stvari za vikend sam pratila BlogOpen (hvala izumitelju livestream-a kao i organizatorima ovog blaženog event-a) i tamo su razni ljudi rekli zašto i kako treba blogovati (a baš čudno na konferenciji o blogovanju da se o istom priča,zar ne Itana-smartass).

Zašto u opšte pričam sama sa sobom? Khm, to je pitanje koje zahteva kompleksan odgovor(predpostavljam) a ja i nisam baš kompetentna da ga obradim (čitaj:strah me da razmišljam o tome). Ali zašto bih da pišem blog, e na to bih trebala odgovoriti #blogopen.

Imam ja tako nekih svojih nedoumica i dilema o kojima da pričam svojoj okolini gledali bi me k’o da nisam pod vinklu, a ja onda samo kažem : Imam ja potvrdu iz Dobrote (za neupućene to je deo Kotora u kojem se nalaze Fakultet za Pomorstvo i Duševna bolnica,zgodno ha?). Eto, pa možda se ovde nadje neko da razume mene ludu. A ako ne, ništa, makar sam pokušala.

Evo npr., kad već pomenuh fakultet, tema koju sam obradjivala za diplomski rad se ticala Ekoloskog Marketinga. U samoproglašeno ekološkoj državi(u momentu proglašavanja-republika) koja potencira svoje prirodne lepote WildBeauty (zbog kojih je,da se ne lažemo, zivot ovde podnošljiviji) i čiji se narod kune u čojstvo(kako ovo da prevedem na engl) i junaštvo, pronalaženje literature ne bi trebalo biti problem. Aha… Srećom moji roditelji su (za razliku od države) na vreme prepoznali vrednosti i prednosti poznavanja engleskog jezika i od malih nogu me usmeravali na isti (a i cartoonetwork je bio od pomoći moram priznati),pa sam uz malo uloženog truda i vremena pronašla literaturu vrednu pažnje.  U pitanju je Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green by Shel Horowitz and Jay Conrad Levinson. I da ne bih sad prepričavala celu knjigu poenta je u etičkom ponašanju koje na kraju dana donosi,gle cuda,profit, i to veći nego bilo koja druga strategija.

I gde je tu sad moja dilema? E pa svuda. Što smo bre taki svet da nam ništa sem tog dinara nije važno? Zašto nam je to merilo svega? Čemu sva trka i frka oko zarade? Šta nama u stvari taj novac donosi? Ova dvojica autora što sam ih linkovala a posebno Horowitz nisu linkovani radi šarenila teksta nego da tu nešto i pročitate.

USA nazivaju FastFood nacijom,ali zar nije ceo svet takav? Ok možda se na njima najviše primećuje jer imaju najviše overweighted ali nije to jedino što nas truje. Da, trovanje hranom se najlakše primeti, a šta ćemo sa ostatkom tela, a o umu da i ne počinjem. A u stvari odatle sve počinje. I to što se svuda vode ratovi je poremećaj. I to što ni trunke tolerancije nemamo osim za svoju guzicu(izvin’te zbog mog francuskog). FastFood poremećaj je samo jedan od produkata trovanja uma. Pa sve nam je Fast, i Food i Life i Way…”i sve nešto lepo”.

Stalno slušam održivi razvoj ovo, održivi razvoj ono za prirodu, za okoliš…a gde sam JA u svemu tome? Kako mogu čuvati prirodu i na kraju krajeva zašto ako sebe ne čuvam? Dakle prosto je, očuvaćemo prirodu čuvajući sebe od nas samih.

I mogla bih ja ovako do sutra, prekosutra da drobim, nego ne bih baš u prvom postu da dobijem etiketu hejtera – naucila od Dede da se to ne valja. Mislim hejtovati, i potpuno se slažem.

Ok maybe it is time to stop talking to myself and instead talk to the rest of the  world. Actually, I was keeping my eye on BlogOpen2011 (a big thank you to the inventor of live stream and organizers of this blissful event. Anyway,   there at the conference various people talked about how and why we should blog ( really Itana, talks about blogging at bloggers conference, really, how unusual…smartass).

Ok why do I even talk to myself? Well, that is the question that requests a complex answer (I guess ), which I am just not competent to give (meaning: I am scared to think about it) J But why should I write a blog, that is the question I should give an answer to #blogopen.

From time to time I talk about  some dilemmas and perplexities and people from my surrounding look at me like I am touched in the head. At that point I can only say : Well, I have a confirmation from Dobrota (part of Kotor-town in Montenegro-where are settled both Faculty of Maritime Studies and Mental Hospital). There you go. So, maybe I will find someone here to understand this loony, and if I do not…oh, well, at least I have tried.

And talking about faculty, my diploma theses was about Eco-friendly  Marketing. In self-declared eco-state of Montenegro which  underline it’s Wild Beauty, and who’s inhabitants swear on their dignity and heroism,  one could think it would not be a problem to find literature on this subject…sure. Good thing my parents recognized in time values of knowing English language and provided private lessons for me from early childhood (though cartoon network was useful as well ). So, with little time and effort I managed to find literature worth of my attention Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green by Jay Conrad Levinson and Shel Horowitz. Not going to paraphrase the book it self  and will skip to the point. The point is ethical behavior which at the end of the day brings profit bigger than any other strategy. Surprise surprise!

Then what is my dilemma? Well everything! Why the hell we do not care about anything but the money? Why is that the only value we are aware of? Why all the fuss about it and is there a real value there? Those links to Horowitz and Levinson are not there just to make this post colorful but for you to read and learn something from them, especially from Horowitz.

We call USA the Fast Food nation. But isn’t the whole world like that. Sure America has the most over weighted citizens but fat is not the only venom. Yes being fat singles you out instantly, it is very much visible but what about the rest of the body? And I do not even want to start with mind. And the truth is that everything starts right there. The fact is we have wars all over the world and that is mental disorder, not a necessity. Not having tolerance but for our own ass (pardon my French) is a huge disorder as well. Fast Food disorder is just one of many products of mind poisoning. Notice that everything has to be Fast…Food…Life…Way…all beautiful things.

Everywhere I turn around I can hear sustainable this…sustainable that…for the nature…for the environment…and where is ME in all of that? How can I save the nature and why, if I do not save myself? We can save nature if we save our selves. It is simple as that.

Though I could go on like this for days, hell even weeks, but do not want to be a hater, have learned from @DedaBor , we should not do that. And I totally agree.

    Itana cestitam na odvaznom koraku otvaranja bloga. Samo ja znam 5 ljudi koji su intezivno pricali o toj ideji a nikako je nisu realizovali(citaj: uplasili se). Nastavi da pise i dajes nam primjere na ovu temu posto mislim da nema puno blogova koji se time bave.
