To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

It is

Just hours before  the day turn the 24th I just found something. It didn't feel good, "I'm not ok". . There was a sudden strange feeling like loads of ice were poured on me,and I'm trembling up to this very moment. I can not cry.

The truth makes me understand  a lot of things that made me confused over the years, the cause of my tears even to sleep and everything that made this beautiful life "not fine".

I do not know how to react, it is just that  it doesn't feel any good and I think my world stops at this very moment. But I think I just have been blessed, I may not understand well what's happening but I know God has better plans. I'm looking forward to  better days this year has been full of catastrophe, never my ideal yet I choose to hang on and believe that we can always save the best for last as the best is yet to come.
