The Seekers – what manner of seeker are you? – By Dr Dhanpaul Narine

The Seekers

By: Dhanpaul Narine

There are four kinds that seek

Each with its own station and path

The first does nothing

And are resigned to whatever happens

Schools for them are factories

Where learning is done by rote


The second hopes for a free lunch

For luck to pass by and change things

They blame others for their circumstance

And are loud, opinionated, aggressive and overbearing

They are shut out from the path of knowledge


The third pushes the door slightly

But are afraid to enter

They are tentative, hesitant, and unquestioning

These seekers know there is a rainbow

But are happy to become the shadows of others

Then they’re those that conceptualize and visualize

Question, discover, share and analyze

They cross boundaries and learn new things

The universities of their minds are boundless

And their intellect is an uncluttered constellation

Where droplets are kissed by the morning dew

Now the question is: what manner of seeker are you?

    what manner of seeker are you?

    I suspect we all want to think the best of ourselves so we go for the last. I am a skeptic by nature. The above assumes humans have a constant personality or nature. Does a single 21 years old see life the same way when he is in his forties with two kids and a wife.

    Or look at another situation. A person might be genetically endowed to be one way but enviromental factors force him to adapt to a different and unsuitable life style. A young fellow from Berbice had a gift for writing. His father refused to spend a penny for college unless he study something more “financially rewarding”. The fellow studied geology but was so disgusted with his life that he ends up as a used car salesman. How does he fit in the above..

    Wonder which category would Gigi fit in.
