The Struggle of Silence

Silences speak the infinite words of nothingness. These are words that can never be heard or spoken externally; for the connotations and connections contained in each of them are so infinite, a single language cannot contain them all. Silence, and the black hole within it, can surely be categorized and filtered and defined, but the categorizations are never, and will never be, adequate.

`

And so we limit ourselves. To living and thinking within our own vocabulary. A person who holds a silence beyond it is left confused and frustrated, because their language does not understand them. Each person is like a foreigner to the rest of society, struggling to express their interpretation of it all. Soon enough, we have all abandoned our silence and conformed to a uniform state in which our silences is suppressed and our language becomes our definition.

`

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Silence is frequently found hidden in the eye of a hurricane. It is always present, but is often found within the midst of chaotic noise.

`

Silence negates social reality. Social reality is exciting and aggrandizing until it brainwashes someone into under-thought. Silence is peaceful and profound until it does the opposite. Silence gives you the chance to listen. Social Reality gives you a chance to speak up. The balance between the two is rarely achieved, or even pursued, but when it is, it is extremely beneficial to a person, and presences surrounding them.

"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."

How to Judge

Judgement is natural. Judgementalism begins when people assume that every thought, word, and action is weighted equally. In early human development, we are encouraged to look for patterns in daily situations and throw away anything that doesn’t belong. We like to forget that judgement is a nessecary factor in human and society development. In fact, without judgement, there would be no order. We wouldn’t have governments, families, or any other important systems in the equation of human development.

The word judgement has been twisted and tangled in our minds so much that now most people believe it means a lot less than it does. Judgement is making an assumption based on limited knowledge. It is what is gained from an impression. Because none of us have the ability to know everything about everything, we are always making judgements. Nothing is perfect, and we will never know the full cause to it’s effect. Therefore, the only realistic approach to is to make educated and open-minded judgements.

Intent is the moral equalizer of our race. Therefore, we should not be judged or judge by the action, but by the desire for it’s consequence.
