commentary part 34
If a person is given both rationale and emotion, there must be a justification for why both are necessary in life. We often grow up, trusting what we feel. If it hurts, it must be bad. If it feels good, we want more. Despite these instinctual cravings, we have logic and, moreover, memory.
I have discovered with time that what I rely on is rationale and the sense that comes with experience. I like to extricate and excavate the meanings, the intentions, the electrical impulses and neurological paths that are taken by various humans to come to the decision or end result that so many decisions do. It’s interesting. And, if examined closely enough, it really does make sense.
Of course, this is only true if the observer is not also the participant. Then, emotions rush in just as fast as reason and somehow they intertwine to wreak havoc upon a once assured mind.
Only time will determine the well chosen path, since emotions whisper happy but fleeting futures and reason creates monotony and routine. I thought I was able to healthily balance the uncommon middle ground. I am only beginning to learn.
I’m actually falling asleep as I type and think right now. And I can only think of the great truths that reach me by logic and reason and beyond, and how it is the only thing that lasts, the only thing that matters.
Everything else is excess. What are you to me?
