Colors 

From the time we are born we are raised by the television. I grew up watching The Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, Mr. Rogers, Brain Games, Fraggle Rock, Good ole’ Sesame Street and many more. I also watched movies like The Goonies, The Labyrinth, The NeverEnding Story, Big Bird goes to China, the Museum and Japan, Brave Little Toaster, The Little Mermaid, and once again, I could literally go on forever. My childhood television programs taught me the meaning of all colors. Through poetic influence, yesterday I began to look at the earth and then it began to quake. Reality is a deception but, it doesn’t have to be, reality is truly what you make of it. The shape of a tree was a lesson learned. The colors of them, the way the leaves dance in the breeze, the aroma of them on a warm spring or summer day or how beautiful the foliage is in the fall. I even see the beauty in a frozen tree stem after a heavy snow fall. I am no longer learning what life is through a television screen that told my vision what to think. Now is the time to refresh everything I thought I knew about life and I have a few suggestions on how we can all get this done.
When I think of colors I attach the color to a feeling. As children we learned that colors have meaning. I guess that is why poets and painters exist so that we can go deeper into the meaning of each color. Red means temptation or love, black means fear or death, white, means purity or completeness. In short, I prove my point that colors have meaning. How I feel shows its reflection in the world around me. Understanding the meaning of colors, I am able to connect my view of the world as I was taught. My fear of death is because everything I watched as a child was cloaked in darkness. Even movies that showed the spirit of togetherness, like Steel Magnolias, the undying theme was death. Because this is what I was shown, I decided at a very young age that I would have a life of happiness but, I also decided my happiness would always end in tragedy.
I can be very optimistic about life but, I am also extremely pessimistic. Every time I get sick or anyone around me gets sick, I always see sadness in the end. It is a good and bad thing that we are all operating on a collective consciousness. Personally, it is good because my fear of death is ultimately conquered. The color of death will be what I make of it, it doesn’t have to be linked to what I was taught by film and television programming. Death does not mean sadness. With triumph, this means I have so much more to learn about life. I haven’t even touched the surface of what life is really about. I don’t have to worry about my limited time. I am now free, for my purpose is to experience all that life has to offer and to find the joy in all things. Up until today, I have not been feeling well. As always, when I get sick I always think that I am going to die from some ailment. I used to become so obsessed with learning about all of these ailments so that when I became sick, I could link my knowledge of the symptoms to how I was feeling. I am proud to say that I am no longer a prisoner to negative thinking.
I have this idea that life is very complex because what we are taught molds how we think. The undying theme of this blog. When in darkness we are always at the choice to become our greatest potential or to proclaim defeat. Flashes of light can make one go blind so, we must find ways to adjust and not run away because remember most of us were taught black means to have fear of the unknown. I really hope my readers can understand that I am trying to build new roads to how we were taught. I told a friend yesterday that we are to be scientists in life. A good scientist will build a hypothesis and with tons of hardcore personal research they are able to come up with a conclusion that results in fact or fiction. When there is no truth or false found you must continue your research. Ladies and gentleman that is the definition of life. Everything in life is a theory. Build your own hypothesis on what life means to you. Get out of the comfort of another man’s theory. If life were based on fact alone it would have no meaning.
My suggestion of the week is to write down every color and allow yourself (not the internet) to provide a definition. After this is done, Write down the name of every person that has meaning and does not have meaning to you (I mean write down the names of your family and friends, write down the name of so-called enemy’s and write down the names of people or things that mean nothing to you). Now, next to each name add a description and write a color that closely links to the description. This will help you to break down how you view life. Think of any way you can now view life your way because each spectrum of color can mean so much more than what we learned through the inductive reasoning stages of our life.
