chaos is the place where thoughts are born

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

“It’s devils and dust, Bobbie.” 

We all have a different interpretation of a form of art. I do not have any particular reasons why, but my interpretation of ‘devils and dust’ has always been chaos in life.

Chaos could be based on anything – when there are so many thoughts trying to disturb your brain like flies.

Maybe the maddening chaos of options, opinions, or rights & wrongs.

I remember being very confused about everything. It was so much information, so many questions, and not so many answers. But as time went by, the information was even more overloaded, and there was plenty of questions again.  I thought that I would never get out of it.

Moreover, life always has some ways to astound us. It was a realization that chaos is not that bad. In fact, it has so much to offer you.’

Chaos- A Home?

“A question opens the mind; a statement closes the mind.” Robert Kiyosaki

The confusion was my state where I lived in a larva mode. 

Furthermore, on an amazing morning of a Friday, there was a click. It wasn’t like that it was suddenly gone, but it started to seem like a beautiful place. As if I look back, I noticed that it something that was directly related in making me who I am today, or give a better dimension to my photography.

In fact, I have noticed that all my days with ‘devils and dust’ astonished me with what I am capable of doing. It’s always a good trip there.

Contradicting information around the world

Everything that you have heard has an equally right-and-opposite saying, George Santayana once said, ‘Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise, to balance it.”   

If you’re not confused, you’re not paying attention.

There is so much information around the work that it can scare the hell out of you.

The more you look for details, the more you will realize no one has no idea what they are talking about.

How far can we see with the information that we have collected until now? The reality is nothing but a conceived notion of a present moment.

How deep is your confusion? Write to me here, and I will write you back.
