The Ability to Write
On a daily basis I experience thoughts and ideas that affect me deeply. Yet, i am not always able to express them in words – spoken or written. I see a vision of these thoughts in my mind whenever I want to, but that’s something only I can see and understand. To put it across to someone with his / her own way of looking at things involves filtering of thoughts down to actions and actions to words. That I am able to do this in a few cases only means that there are aspects about myself that I am yet to interpret. Interpreting would involve accepting what I am as I am. And perhaps that is something I would avoid instinctively, thanks to my ego. Whether that would happen gradually over a period of time is anyone’s guess. But the curiosity to know what I am not able to pen down will never go away. For the day it goes away, I’ll probably stop talking / writing.
But why writing? Expressing oneself is something we indulge in all the time. The better we are at it, the more easier it is for people to understand. We might choose to express ourselves in written or spoken words, or with actions. Writing is my way of saying it. What’s yours?
Moral of the whole thing: Be curious. Know yourself. Curiosity did kill the cat, but it might help you live a better life.
