"Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its root into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write." Rainier Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Finding a New You

In Aristotelian Logic, there is a Law of Excluded Middle which says, "A Thing can either BE or NOT BE at a given point in time. There is no intermediate possibility". Does this apply to Life too?

stripped down to our bare minimum i am realizing that all of us actually belong to one side or the other,there are no onlookers. we were always send to and meant to be the players not to be sittin and perching on the fence with our asses rested up against it
for a long time of my life,which is 30 years of it FYI,i always thought the buddhist concept of the 'Middle path' is the most practical and peacefull way to live our lives, its only now i realize that actually it isnt any of those,infact the reason why it's favoured so much by people is because it's convenient !
you teach yourself that if taking sides taks some pain and effort then u always have "D Middle Path"
'eff'ing nonsense there isnt any !
either i can be a sickly coward who is too scared to identify my own needs and ending up leading my own life as per somone else's rules or i could be a rebel and end up livivg my life of my own making !
we all hav to make a choice and i pretty much hav made mine
HNY to me,you and one and all

There is a middle path, I wish there is.

Sometimes I feel blogging is one of those middle paths - For eg, when you see something you dont like - one extreme is to just ignore it and move on, another extreme is get down and fix it, the middle path is to blog and tell people about it so that someone goes and fixes it. What do you say?

therin again i feel that we had already made our choice and selected our path. What we speak and which side we choose to speak from,actually decides what 'path' we favour
