Is Grass greener on the other side? Could be!

In life, we often move along with certain notions and pre-determined mindsets. Let me test some of them here with a slight touch of logical humour –

  1. We know life isn’t a bed of roses and we also know roses have thorns but anyone thought how’s it for the thorns? It could easily be a bed of roses for them!
  2. If you can’t convince them confuse them. But, if you can’t confuse them shouldn’t you confirm it once and for all? Do it.
  3. Early bird gets the worm but worms couldn’t be sleeping or is it that they got up first? So, getting up early in the morning is a good habit but not if you are a worm!
  4. Only common people can say ‘common sense isn’t common’ and they know it better, no doubt! So, could I proclaim “‘Common Sense’ belongs to the extraordinary…”? I think I can!
  5. They say ‘forget the past… live in the present’ & they also say ‘learn from your mistakes’ but how will I know what mistakes I made if I have to forget the past? It’s apt to say let’s not forget our mistakes.
  6. ‘Never say never’ – this could be the most unintelligent phrase in English… after all, you just had to say it twice to convey the meaning! Besides, ‘never’ is a negative word even if used in positive context.
  7. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush but what’s wrong with having more than two especially when multitasking is the buzz word today? Just need to balance it right.
  8. Whoever said, ‘money can’t buy everything’ must have had lots of money or lots of everything! But it can also mean ‘everything isn’t for sale’ and ‘money is cheap’.
  9. ‘A rose by any other name would smell as sweet’ quoted William Shakespeare but interesting question is how do we know what we are referring to when we talk about the sweetness? And no way, names are just for namesake!
  10. Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream. This is a popular nursery rhyme and the idea is to ‘row our life boats quietly and happily while living the dream!’ The question is figuring out whether it is really a stream, river or an ocean where we are rowing our boats.

‘Life is a mystery’ so, don’t worry if you get lost. We all are…!

Keep going though in search of your path and when you are sure you have found your path, keep rowing more!

SPACE – 2

Continuing into Space-2…

(Do refer my previous blog on Space – http://know2be.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/space/‎)

Remember the time when you spent considerable time wondering whether your car would fit into the available parking SPACE…? At that point of time, the space was more important to you than your car, isn’t it? It should be… after all, car is supposed to carry you… you hardly can carry your car wherever you go! 

Then what about that ‘to-let’ space a building owner advertises and which he/she would like someone to occupy? Isn’t the space that’s offered a valuable proposition then? And it only gets more value with the status of the location… is it in the city centre? Is it near the bus terminal? Is it the most happening location? So, the space you own fetches you revenues in such case.

Even human anatomy is such where the creator has given ample scope for space… observe yourself… isn’t there space between your eyes, ears, fingers, toes… don’t forget the space between your any two hair… Of course, in some persons, the space between their eyes could be more or less but important thing to note is ‘there is space’. Now, that’s just external body…! What about the bone structure, nerves, tissues, vital organs… are they all clamped up inside? No way, they are appropriately spaced… heart is in its own space while kidneys are located in its own significant space. In rare cases where ‘space’ application has somehow gone wrong, we have conjoint twins or a dislocation of certain body parts.

Just like how air occupies the space inside a balloon or water occupies the space of the container it’s poured in, haven’t we occupied earth’s space? We have constructed our bridges, flyovers, tunnels, subways and taken away the space or should I say, we have made ‘a space’ to suit our conveniences?   

Whatever it is, I would like to conclude by saying, ‘Space is a wonderful entity’.  We think – we create space, we need space, we own space, we allot space, we invade space or we occupy space… the truth is we are living and moving in SPACE.  

Thank you WordPress for this Space.
