Long ago, a certain wise man said “Humanity has only scratched the surface of its real potential” -- which is a timeless truth yet incapable to digest.
Of course, there is no great ethos to pull out here!!
A man’s terrific potentiality is simply the fine display of decision-making. Running alone into the wilderness; leaving the invasive trails on the moon; challenging the sovereign seas -- he did everything, only to appease his animated desires of seeing more; feeling more and knowing more.
Each of the zillion decisions we make everyday
trips and turns our world around.
Some choices are like long-yearned blessing rain, others make us writhing in pain. Why so?? Let me say this, we are in a well-thought-out universe. Everything is assimilated in such a way that change in one will affect other. In a good or bad way, some marks and impacts are bound to happen. The aphorism (articulation) of our beliefs, rationalized instincts, whims and the sense of culture sets apart every choice of ours. And here, I would like to flip the first card from my deck -- that says “Feeling”.
All the components I have mentioned above (beliefs, whims… and the rest) are feelings. How do we feel about something or some story or some event? The way we feel, that subconsciously changes the future steps we are going to take. That is why we make the best decisions when we approach the decision-making process from a balanced emotional and intellectual foundation. (MADISYN TAYLOR)
There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion. - Carl G Jung
I have always wondered, whether all human feeling is the same thing at the bottom. I know you may think, I am going off topic. But this is what I wanted to discuss from the start. Also, I would definitely understand, if you feel dissenter with my view. Feelings of hatred and love; greed and generous; self-righteous and thoughtful; leadership and followership -- all of these are ultimate developed forms of a basic thought that come from a synchronized mind and heart.
A man says “I want to be the king.” The man, next to him says “I am and will always be a peasant.” Even if they both are human, why do they chose to live differently? The choice came from a simple thought of "what do they want to become?" "What do they feel about themselves or their ability or future or the road they want to take or can take?"
Obviously, the thought is not a matter of words-devoid-of-will. It's about checking your inner self and maintaining a balance to achieve the frame of mind where you chose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. Accepting that "There are times we will have changes, compromises, and difficulties." After all, happiness can't be felt without a lush of tears...
