The Bourgeois And Me…
My internet service provider, which is also the internet service provider for several other individuals within this nation was acting amiss today. Someone presented a metaphor trying to explain to a coworker of mine that the internet was like water and the service provider was the pump to the well. They exclaimed that the well was full and the pump was working but the water was being pump elsewhere.
What? Where is the internet going? Ha. It made me also think Y2K and the possibility that perhaps our estimations were just a little over a decade off. Huh…who knew. Y2K always makes me think of other conspiracies like the end of the world. If that is to happen are we right or wrong about our best guesses thus far? I don’t know if I believe in any of that mumbo-jumbo but it’s interesting to think about. It’s also interesting to think about how little I have written this year, for being my greatest passion I sure have shown it little limelight.
In fact, it saddens me how little I have created. I have worked more consistently this year but I have also played equally consistently. Yet, I have rendered my creativity very minimally.
Endlessly I feel half exhaustion, half ecstasy, in every inhale and every exhalation. So in conclusion, what is real to you, what is illusion?
A Bad Cup Of Coffee!
A bad cup of coffee is stale. It is too dull for words. It leaves one disappointed and confused because good coffee is a great reason to wake in the morning.
Bad coffee leaves you wondering how on earth something so wonderful could taste so terrible. It burns in a strange way. It holds tightly onto your tongue and all of you wants is to wash away the taste. It is a delicate torture to have a terrible cup of coffee.
Most importantly for me, a good cup of coffee springs such energy and joy within me that I am happy to be alive for the oppurtunity to consume it, to share it, to witness others being enticed over this coffee. To strike up a conversation over this delicacy.
Anyone that has any knowledge of what a good cup of coffee is knows how horrid a venture it is to pursue an awful cup of coffee. But without duality where on earth would we be? Absolute. But our minds are not made that way. Our minds are made for comparing and contrasting. We are made to decide. We are choosy.
In many ways to be human is to place judgment. But this is said to be sinful. Perhaps so. The truth of the matter is, that it is entirely impossible understand anything about the world, yourself, or others without judgement, whether the result is recieved as negative or positive by others does not matter.
Ultimately it matters how you perceive the world, yourself, and others because reality is perception. This makes the most delicious of things in life even more delicious because they are not the terribly dull or bitter wreck that is a bad cup of coffee. So one should be thankful for the good and the bad cup of coffee because it makes your perception of reality much easier.
