No Rhymes
Let me write a poem whose verses come in sentences.
There is more to this world than what we already know.
Do not confine yourself to the truths you think will never change.
You can make truths. You can even evolve the truth.
I have a lesson for you. Listen.
A close eye literally magnifies things, but that truth too, can be taken abstractedly.
So the things which you might think are important, might just be too close to home.
Step back. In fact, if you can, run back, and widen your horizon.
You owe yourself a better view of this world.
You literally deserve grander things, not only things which appear grand.
Silence is a good exercise.
Silence evokes infinite ideas. Silence can sometimes be verbose, and having all the words may sometimes confuse people more. Silence, too, can bear the black and white value of yes or no. One may give silence in very many ways, but silence is always how you take it.
So what is this?
Shut up and just be kind.
Shut up.
You need to shut up.
And people don't

Words are instruments by which we represent the world around us. That is why with increasing understanding of the world, we equally know more words.

I am fascinated by how so many words are associated, interrelated, and yet they saliently have different 'values.' It is if you put them on a scale, and these words - seemingly synonymous, would suddenly outweigh each other.

So in my insatiable desire to understand the world around me, here is my valuation of a few words. (God forbid that I be so introspective [and therefore withdrawn] like this!)

Work > Job
Goals > Tasks
Value > Cost
Giving > Taking
Value to receiver > Value to giver
Hope > Promise
Justice > Obedience
Goodness > Laws
Ability to forgive > Righteousness
Comfort > Luxury
Enough > Excess
Faith > Belief/Religion
Strength > Power
Relationship > Popularity
Honesty > Pleasant
Kind > Nice

And yet the same words can mean so differently for other people.
For some, the scale tips differently. For some they equate words.

The weight of words then, are not inherent to them. They sometimes change value over time. What must've been valuable to you before, no longer is.

Go on, try defining the world.
  • Listening to: Nothing. I am in an atmospheric vacuum.
