Dare to Think & Dare to Feel

July 2020

I can’t add anything to this

June 2017

Maybe this “Dare to feel” or “Dare to follow your gut instinct” is more important than ever.

This sentence was written in the 18th century by the famous German philosopherย Emmanuel Kant. However, I ask myself if it is still up to date.

Subtly we get manipulated

If I have a look at how subtle and subconsciously we get manipulated by advertising, for example, or by the way media choose their topics, I wonder how much we can think for ourselves. The internet definitely is an excellent opportunity to find information from other than the mainstream media. However, it still needs time to sort through all the information. That also needs some energy to do. And most people do not have a lot of time.

Have we developed standarts that lead us when chosing information?

And what does lead us to choose the right information? Are we educated enough and have we developed standards that lead us? It used to be religion or society that gave secure standards to follow. There were always one or two individuals who didn’t agree and became either outlaws or outstanding people. But there was something that led you. Today society expects you to choose for yourself, and there are so many religions you can follow; it starts getting confusing.

Dare to follow your gut instinct

Thinking about what led me along my life’s path, I realised it wasn’t only the ability to think that led me or the people I learned from. It also had something to do what felt right. That kind of gut feeling where you just know something is the right decision. Sometimes my logic agreed, but sometimes there was no logical reason what so ever to choose how I chose, but it was always right.

So maybe today it is not only “dare to think” but also “dare to feel”?

Aside

Poetry. Scared stiff

Scared stiff
to go to sleep
To move an inch
Scared stiff
To make a sound
To walk around
This house feels
So uninviting
Scared stiff
To be me
To just be free
Why do I
Feel so terrified?
Just scared stiff?To go to bed

Carolanne poetry prompt from Bee!

This week Bee has given me a wonderful prompt to write on. It is sand between my toes. So without further ado I give you my poem.

walking on a beach
white sand glistening
softly it squishes
between my toes
I can feel it
so delicate
so soft, such a beautiful feeling
I could walk for miles
With the soft silkt sand
Which feels so warm
In the suns rays
Warm against my skin
This is heaven
