“Why would you ever want to see the world for the way it is, and not the way you imagine it to be.”
Just a thought: (when you see this, it means there is no cohesive order to what I am about the write)
An interesting quote, it probably has a source, but I said it the other day (context being: talking about getting drunk in the evening and as a joke I coined the original quote which started “What kind of life is a sober existence…”)
But the truth is the quote about getting absolutely drunk the following night actually has a lot of meaning behind it.
It is true that everything we see is relative and judgement is made my the individuals perception but in this modern, progressive, innovative day have we become blind to what is really happening.
Why would you want to see the world the way it is? Isn’t it full of evil, hardship, pain, poverty, hunger… hate?
I am a very positive person that enjoys everything, is kind and lives life to its fullest but recently I have become much more aware of the everyday evils that are just swept under the rug because they are the “norm” = consumer waste, environmental damage, animal cruelty. I have said it before and I will say it again, we are so concerned with our own roofs and whats happening underneath them we forget about where our actual home is… this big rock we all share, yet do we really care?
Why would we want to see the world for the way it is, when how we imagine it is so much better?
Now to make the original point irrelevant,
Do we not all need to see the world in different ways, doesn’t the juices of creativity and life come from the ability to see everything through your own eyes? Why is it we travel, if not to widen the boundaries on our imaginations and thoughts.
My friends say I live in my own world and don’t see green the way they do, but this ability to change perceptions, create something from nothing and see the world the way I want to, is what keeps life exciting.
Which ever you way you want to take the quote, it still makes you think.
