I know for sure that everyone has noticed that when the sun kisses the water, you can see beautiful little sparkles dancing on the water. As I was celebrating my life by treating myself to a trip to France, I sat down by the water and that got me thinking about life. The longer I sat there staring that the glistening water in Givet the more I thought about how our knowledge of the water represents our relationships with people.
We know people, we’ve seen water. When we talk to one another we get to know each other, when we go for a swim we familiarize ourselves with the water. The thing is we only see the parts shown to us by the water, just like people only tell you what they want you to know. Basically we know just as much about the water as we know about people. Daunting right? But even though we are subconsciously aware of the paradox, we still enjoy both people and water, even if it’s in our own way.
What I’m trying to say is that we choose the people we surround ourselves with and we choose to go in the water based on very little knowledge. It made me realize that every person engaging in a friendship, a love affair or any other sort of relationship is brave. Now if we are willing to do that, why are we so unwilling to do something new? Why are we constantly scared of the unknown when we are always surrounded by it? Food for thought..
What do you think about this analogy? Have you ever had deep thoughts sitting by the water as I had sitting by the glistening water in Givet?
I can’t help but wonder how a simple paradox is a big foundation of our lives.
