“When the power of love overcomes the love for power, the world will know peace…”Sri Chinmoy Ghose

I’m a strong believer in the power of love… Love is what drives the weak to step up. Love is what makes us act passionately. Love is what makes us happy, sad and feel high all at the same time. Loves is what leads our emotions and our hearts forward. Love was the downfall of many great men/women (So I’ve heard…). I heard that Love conquers all…

But why hasn’t ‘Love’ conquered all???

See what’s fucked up about our world today is that no one is really motivated by ‘Love’… It’s not necessarily about ‘Power’ either. It’s more about the need to just ‘get by’ doing whatever it is we do to get by and dying knowing we did something. When in reality we didn’t do shit, but be part of a machine that subsequently helped shorten our existence.

I basically want to die knowing I LOVED someone and I’ll gladly exit this show with no curtain call. I just want to have that feeling… The feeling my parents still have to this day. The feeling I see when a mother and father look into a new born baby’s eyes… The feeling of comfort and security in the arms of someone who loves me and I love them. That’s all…

The rest of this shit… Yeah I’m good at it, but it’s not going to complete me (Real Talk).

So I guess Ghose is right, ‘Love’ needs to overcome ‘Power’ before people can honestly see what it means and how it can really change the way we look at the world… I just hope that day comes in my lifetime.

“You do ill if you praise, but worse if you censure, what you do not understand.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Da Vinci is one of my favorite  philosophers and artists. I just found this quote the other day and I’m so on it and he’s right to censure shit and not try and under it is an injustice to the intellectual.

But I don’t think we do ill if we praise because some people deserve recognition for things they do and if they don’t get it enough from people they feel count the most in their lives where’s that extra sense of worth that comes from “praise” from a loved one going to come from?

To praise someone for making a wrong or bone headed decision in the larger scope of things is sort of a call of judgment on the individual giving praise. You can cause harm for appeasing a weak willed person with praise for a menial task, but on the other hand, it could boost them up as well… But to what extent can we let a retard feel they deserve “praise?” Maybe da Vinci has a point…

Let’s just say:

“Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.” – Marcus Aurelius

Word to AURELIUS!
