The world is neither good nor evil, each man manufactures a world for himself!
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT WAYS I CAN LOOK AT IT? GOOD, BAD, UGLY?
I have always wondered about the different lines of thoughts and different ideologies people have about the world. Some of them even say that the world is a reflection of who you are as a person. It reminds me of a story where a man was asked his view of the world and he says – “I am a beautiful man where as the world is a torrid place”. Another man said ” The world is a beautiful place and I am a horrible person”. There was one more person who said “Both me and the world are horrible” and the last one like you guess said – “I am beautiful and so is the world”. There is no mystery here, all of us would want to live in the last philosophy of thought where everything around us and even us are beautiful and life is an amazement in its own self.
WHAT IF IT IS ALL BAD?
If we consider the first two men or rather the first three, there is a clear pessimism in the voice, the tone and also the representation. If you look at them closely, each one of them points to a negative view of life and no matter what you do you are certainly going to be unhappy. If you believe that the world is good and you are not, it clearly shows the insecurity and also the lack of belief in oneself. If otherwise you say that you are good and the world is bad, it shows a clear haughtiness and arrogance with less respite from your surroundings. If you are the third type it says, there is no hope to this world and whatever I do is immaterial cos it is of no significance anyway and it doesn’t really matter.
MAYBE A SHRED OF GOOD?
Whereas the last one, the place where you and me want to be shows acceptance and a constant strive to feel the world the way it is and the opportunity to beautify it!
THE WORLD IS THE WAY IT IS!
Now I certainly do not know what the world is, it maybe an evil place or it maybe an amazing place. But I would want to take it as it comes. There is beauty in a lot of things and there is disgrace in a lot others. I wouldn’t want to try and be an idealist trying to find the good in someone when they have a knife pointed at us. I don’t even want to be a fatalist who says nothing is in control and I just let everything go without any effort to make anything better.
I guess the reality is perhaps a mix of the two, something which we can appreciate. The world is going to be a place as it is. Not much is going to change the way we look at it. But certainly our world is going to change. Our experiences are going to change and the way we approach the situations are going to change. Bottom line and the truth is that it is going to be the same but the way we look at it and the world we open ourselves to is going to be a choice.
SO WHAT IS THE FINAL VERDICT?
So, as for the question if the world is evil, well do lemme know what you think! 🙂
