Other than this blog, I have a notebook where i pen my thoughts while on the train or almost immediately after class. I’ll never forget the look on my wife’s face when i told her ‘Dear, I just bought a notebook.’ She was like ‘!!!’. thinking than i bought the ‘Notebook’ as in a ‘computer notebook’. funny how some nouns stayed the same but the items associated with the names have changed.
Anyway, back to the purpose of this post. I’ve posted about more than 100 topics, and when i read back some, there is often a repetition of themes. some inconsistencies in opinions and other biasness. guilty as charged.
I’ve said it in my first blog post this is somewhat a journal for me, and if my readers finds it beneficial, great. some who do not disagree, fine. if there is severe bias on my part, i subject myself to the scrutiny of the public. Please feel free to comment.
Repeating themes are like life and our ego, ever wondered how some songs get stuck in our head and refuse to go away? Same. these repeating themes and incessant issues in my head sometimes drive me up the wall. Nagging knots of thoughts that refuse to go away, like circling vultures, ready to swoop down and pick on my tired and weary mind. It drives me crazy.
On hindsight, this has helped me, crystallize my concepts, unloading these nagging thoughts into my posts, emptying them here enable to think of some other things. Like the Zen fable, I try to empty my cup through these writings so that my cup can have space for more fresh tea.
I want to thank those who has commented and those who have read and find some value out of these words. I do not, own these words, nor say that they are absolutely true. It is my own tinted glass, don’t wear mine as yours, find out for yourself, if it works, use it, if not throw it out, if it does not work anymore later, throw it out. if it is rubbish now, but valuable later, take it back and use it. Pay it forward, i really do not want anything else in return.
