“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough”.


-Albert Einstein


In a blink of an eye, a year passes unknowingly and the journey of humankind in this world passes through confusion and uncertainty. It is imperceptible that we are living without the hope in next generation. Men are obsessed to adapt with the changing world, progressive, prosperous, and harmonious for the will to survive but without knowing the consequences.


Today, our world is living in chaos, unaware and impatient among our self because we never know what will happen in a nearer future, but we have a mode to survive and to work to satisfy for our living but it is incorrigible. Incipient where are we today! Do we have hope? Do we have a bright future? Yes, indeed we have. Though in contemporary, the world is full of sophisticated surrounding our self with an advance technology, making us easier way to live but it make us becoming procrastinate finding an easy solution for a person to live.


Inequality is a major problem we are facing today, the world is divide into two society indigent and high social class. Most people think it is injustice,. However, as we look further there is no differentiate among them, an indigent are repudiate their status, imitate without their limitation, whereas high social class are practicing of immature and unreliable where it is irksome. Both are indulge irrational without knowing where the world taking us to.


In religious view, every person believe in Liberation, through biblical we believe in eternal, God is our saviour, theology says, acknowledge his wisdom, goodness and power this is the most important in human ethics, but can we guarantee for our eternal with this current situation? What if there is second coming of Jesus? Though, it is an immature mindset but what ‘if’ it happen, it will be immense depress to insipid people.


Presently, our world is facing of wars, famines, and economic failures, conflict among nations, imbroglio, jealousy, hatred and bitterness, all this are making us confused about our future. In other way technology is shaping our world and inspiring people’s mind but it is all about illusion and we are being directed to wrong way. Furthermore, every religion teaches about the ethics but men are avoiding the good will and become more greedier and arrogance. It is unalterable and improbity – the world has no choice, let it be, judgements await, soon or later.


Eventually, the most important thing for human beings in this world should adopting the characteristics of God and keeping his commandments, It is the will of God and a good relationship between Him and fellow human beings. Nonetheless, whatever situation we are facing today – one must put faith in God and mind his business without interfering others. At this juncture I would like to raise a question – where are we today? Are we hypnotize by our fancy mind or is it all about illusion? Humankind are in confusion, instability and admissible to illusion, therefore the transition of our world is in chaos!
