Echo of my mind; Life in Black and White

''Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

Some people mistake every teary eyes for sign of inward sorrow and misfortune, so they spend times consoling and pitying the fellow, even.. not knowing what he has running down his cheeks were tears of joy! Sometimes, we just look at the other person smiling and flashing his teeth at us with excitement. Then we hug and kiss, only to find that it is kiss of death! And the smile is that of predator! Sometimes, what we need is inner eyes working with the two eyes, as the two external eyes alone do flatter to deceive... I like the way Anne Bronte put it: "But smiles and tears are so alike with me, they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad.” The question then is, can you recognise the message being conveyed by tears and smiles? In the same way, a wise man can play the fool to get his message across and a fool can play the sage to get the world's attention. This world is not entirely Black and White.. sometimes, we miss the rainbow and its beautiful spectacle because we are busy looking for the Black and the White... So when you walk around the world, using your 'Black and White' life to evaluate others, you can be sure to generate tons of errors and manufacture the people who never existed, but real only in your imagination. Your would would be more beautiful if you stop seeing life in Black and White and start seeing the kaleidoscope of multiple colours.. Only then, can you truly understand the world around you. And Rimu reminds me of how far I have come; ''Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” #echoofmymind
