Discovering something new doesn’t always mean discovery of something unknown. We can discover new ideas by reflecting over what we know already.
Don’t get too concerned about the lies others speak of you. Lies are diversions in your journey of life, not the path of life itself.
Everything is an illusion because everything is changing. Nothing is constant.
We get a sense of stability time to time, because we are physically limited to observe the change happening all the time. Whether it be observing electromagnetic radiation out of range of visible spectrum or awareness of a piece of revolutionary literature across the world.
Our minds always look for patterns, to interpret everything to have a meaning. What we understand we assimilate in our theory, what we ignore stays hidden from our sight.
That’s why it’s said that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, because what the one person is throwing away (ignoring) has something that is acknowledged by the other because of the way they interpret information.
You must have noticed it in your daily life. When we don’t need something, say a screwdriver, we’ll forget about its existence, and when we need it, we’ll ransack the house and curse ourselves for not keeping it in the right place.
We can’t pay attention to everything all the time, what we can do is build awareness so that attention can be brought into play when needed.
We tend to limit what we acknowledge because we don’t have luxury of time to assess every object around us.
This teaches us a valuable lesson. If you form opinion about something, let it not become rigid, because overtime you may come to see it as something else entirely. If you haven’t formed an opinion about something, let it float in the back of the mind, so that it can have its own judgement day.
If you try to have the exact same judgment throughout your life, you’ll go insane due to the change happening around you. Adapting is about accomodating change, whether you accept it or not is a question that you’ll have to answer later. But for today just adapt, and leave the judgment for another day.
Learning is the end goal. Achievement is part of the process. We don’t learn to achieve, we achieve to learn more.
Don’t worry about what you can or can’t do. Care about what you want to do and do it already.
Our world is in a constant state of flow. We too flow within it. It is a luxury to observe the world as it is without being drowned by it.
We all are somehow resistant to change. No matter how small or big. Yet when the change happens, we find a way to adapt.
Don’t be what the world pushes you to be. Be what the universe created you to be. If you do not know what the universe created you for, what is the purpose of your life, then search for it. Isn’t that why we live life?
You only lose when you give up. When you keep persisting it means you’re still playing the game.
If you want to make sure your blade never dulls, make it easier to have a challenging life.
