What you really are? You are someone’s way of looking at oneself; you are something’s way of looking at itself.
Manmohan Dash, 24-08-2015
There is no answer to “what you really are”. Because there is no answer to “what you really are”.
There is only what you understand. What you create. And its what you create that answers what you are. Because that’s what you understand.
Nobody talks what your mother is really like. She makes lovely pies. And people say your mother is lovely. Because she understands how to create lovely pies and she creates lovely pies. There is no answer to what she is really like.
Feynman created QED and he is known as the Quantum Man. He understood quanta and he could create their visual imagery. There is no answer to what Feynman was really. Because there is no answer to what an electron is? Feynman was an electron’s way of looking at itself.
Can you imagine a human being who helps the electron realize what the electron wants to look like? Feynman understood the electrons. The electron wants to be understood certain way and its Feynman who creates those ways and hands over to the electrons.
The artist paints his work the way the objects wants to be visualized. The artist just goes closer to that ‘way’ to bring the beauty of its objects. The lover just helps his own lover achieve that realization of how she wants to be “understood” or “feel like”. There is no answer to what a lover is, as long as there is no answer to what the lover of the lover wants him/her to behold.
We will be known for what we understand and what we create or what we help others to achieve. There are no answers to what we are. If you help the atoms achieve what they are bothering you to, then you are going to be the atom’s way of looking at itself. If you help your lover achieve his/her mental tranquility you will be your lover’s way of looking at him/herself. If you help beggars achieve stardom you are the beggar’s way of looking at themselves as stars.
You become the star of beggars.
