What we want ...continues

I am amazed that my previous blog received such sharp reactions - a couple left the comments, but more called and expressed their "views".

Why does it become so hard to accept something that is not the "perceived" image of a person ? My question still continues - What we want?.. and spent a good 3 hour trying to gather my thoughts - this sentence sums it all.

“Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves”

Freedom comes from the ability to face ourselves.

the moment I hear "ability", the thought that occurs is - hmm...some thing that needs to be scaled (in a larger sense)...so..its by having the competency(~ability) to face (~stand up against? onself and look in the eye) that freedom is achieved!! SO...freedom is "earned"??

My take is - Freedom exists! - its our will to take it - and to take it (~enjoy freedom), we should be able to shoulder our own responsiblity.

--Nice thought btw

"...we should be able to shoulder our own responsiblity"

Still an "ability".
Needs competency.
Must be achieved.

What I would want is to form an opinion based on the real image and teh perceived image (perceived by my own self)...

3 hours are less zulu. Often people spend a lifetime unravelling the mysetrious question "what do i want?" and still reach nowhere.

There are many who spend an entire lifetime not even wanting to unravel teh mystry. And tehre are more who are not even aware that there is a mystery and they need to unravel it.

I guess it takes all kinds to make the world....:-)

BTW, ur blog set em thinking. Good job zulu!

ala... I should have been careful wiht the choice of words. .:P

"we should be WILLING (X not able) to shoulder our own responsibility"

time is realtive to the human mind - once the spark occurs - "measure of time" becomes irrelevant.

Does it :P ??

P.S: should this comment have taken more time ??

Possibility. Ability. Timeability. Do we know what we want?

P.S to the above note: Throw in responsibility for good measure
