Half truth...






















Photo by - Endevourme

They told me that complete ignorance is better than knowing half the truth. I believed them and it kept me away from the truth. They told me that reality is bad, i too thought so and that made me biased. I kept looking for bad and i found worse. But life is too strong. Too strong to be washed away with these biases. It pulled me out, made me awake and brought me closer. Closer to reality. And when reality stared at me full face is when i understood, that i was right from the beginning and they were wrong. That the most important question is "why?". When you find answer for this is when you understand that there is no one to blame, not man not even fate. Everything happens for reason, a reason so beautiful that its worth more than even our own life. For the one who keeps his eyes open, time resolves this puzzle, it solves everything, slowly, deliberately so that we realize and we understand. And thats why even if everything is not clear at all the times, it doesnt matter. All that matters is to keep searching. With open eyes and without bias. Being deliberately blind is the biggest sin. Perhaps, the only sin.

hmmm...well i dunno...
a lot of things have happened in my life without reason or atleast i have failed to see any till now...so it makes me want to believe in the 'theory of randomness'--that is random things happen to people randomly...
but then maybe ur right..we just got to wait and maybe the answers will come to us in due course of time...:)

i used to think like this a few years back and i can understand. but yes, now things are different. see we tend to find what we are looking for, thats why we shouldnot be biased(positively or negatively)
but this understanding is worth finding cause it solves lot of things(if not all)
thank yu :)

#gunj

the first thing i was about to say was ---seems ur reading a lot...now its confirmed least ur reading...

anyways..this was intellectual and ur right. To put it in my words, it is wrong to not do something when we have the abilities...but once they are lost or if they haven't been given to us then accepting the will is also a good thing...resisting it always isn't right...

yes u r right on the last one too, any individual must act in his rational self interest.
rational self interest means his (god gifted) intellect plus emotions and instincts.
btw i was more helped by natural instincts and i have strongly realized that intellect has some serious limitations thats why being intelligent does not mean being happy. Not everything can be understood subjectively :D

Beautiful picture ..and I completely agree. :)
Things "going wrong" is just our way of expressing transformations that make butterflies out of us. :)

the only thing that matters is "now"...everything else is just stuff in the way of enjoying fully the present moment...to view life differently is to contemplate the rational of eternity...it can not be intellectualized....

'now' is important and it gives beauty to life i agree :D
but knowing is important, till we rationally acknowledge other things, presnt cant be stable..i m telling this with my own experience

otherwise we are just escaping into 'present moment awareness' by either 'ignoring the rest' or 'mystifying that true knowledge is beyond intellect'

Keshi said...

I mean it's the WHOLE truth or NOTHING at all :) Meaning I dun like halves.
