A Dark Place

I don’t know this for sure, but I believe there isn’t a light source inside our brain. The mind therefore lives in the dark. Disillusionment, I think has its roots somewhere there.

The mind lives in a dark place and translates the darkness as seeing things as futile. The more we look inside ourselves for answers; the more darkness we experience. Most answers are out there. Where we do see something positive, it’s an effort to absorb the light through our eyes and illuminate the deep recesses of our minds.

When perfection and imperfection come face to face, it seems that the frustration emanates from the perfect side. If perfection is so susceptible to being disillusioned, it’s not perfect, is it?

  1. Very well said! Though still trying to understand your point of view about “Most answers are out there. Where we do see something positive…”
    I guess it’s coz I don’t agree with that as i have usually found my answers deep with in…May be I don’t understand the perspective you are trying to draw …would love to understand it though…

    “If perfection is so susceptible to being disillusioned, it’s not perfect, is it?” … Just love this thought.. Very beautiful.

    Wah wah Janaab! Wonder where you find these thoughts considering there is darkness within … 😉

    Shukriya!

    The answers are always out there. We don’t find answers deep within – we just formulate them there – when we allow light from outside to enter our minds. That’s my PoV. Perfection is a inward looking phenomenon – else there would be clear benchmarks for perfection – the reason perfection is so disillusioned, is that it looks inside.

    There may be darkness inside – but it’s a well lit city out there! 🙂

    You got that right! 😉 Will miss your posts!

    Absolutely! Striving for perfection – and therefore using your standards as a benchmark for others – is that much more futile and frustrating.

    ==Sangeeta:
    I do too! 🙂

    If any of us were perfect – we would be God (or equivalent for the atheists)
