Is the Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?
Did you come across this question in your childhood? School days, maybe!
This is a very generic question which people ask to judge whether a person is optimistic or pessimistic.
Optimism is celebrated across the world, but the real problem is, there is a very thin line between being realistic and being pessimistic.
And I don’t see any issue when someone sees the glass as half empty.!
You can’t deny other possible observations, which he/she might be exploring.
And why should we restrict ourselves to see only positive reality?.
Why can’t we just observe the reality!.
And that’s why I think most of our past learnings are filled with a hell lot of unnecessary motivation, which restricts us from seeing a real picture of life.
Because of that, we forced us to see only one dimension of life, just to be politically correct.
So if you ask me the same question, then I will surely take the liberty to go beyond unnecessary hyper positivity.
So here are some things I observe looking at the same glass.
- Glass is half-filled and half-empty.
- Glass is half-filled with water and half-filled with air.
- Water as it looks still but not still, and it is made up of molecules that are moving continuously.
- Air is which is half-filled the glass must be in a continuous moving position.
- Glass, though its seems solid, is vibrating.
- Glass is stable relative to my position.
- Glass is not stable if I relate it with the motion of the earth, solar system, and galaxy.! As the earth is moving around itself, plus it is also moving around the sun. Now the sun is not stable, so the whole solar system is also in the circular motion. So in a nutshell, I can say the glass is entitled to a minimum of three motions.
There is a lot more that can be observed seeing the same glass. I don’t understand why we are obsessing with such hyper optimism.
Just observing reality as it is enough!
Do you agree?
