[1: 2,072 of 10,000] Unraveling Irony

In Journal on May 15, 2022 at 12:32 AM

I used to wonder why irony exists.

Part of me wants a world that’s black and white. I am not a fan of grey area, it’s too vague and unnerving like a relationship status declaring “it’s complicated”.

I never forgot the story about a fisherman who was resting in a hammock. A businessman saw him and spoke about how he could dramatically expand his business into an empire. The humble fisherman inquired then what will I do after I’ve become the richest that I can be? The businessman answered then you can rest in your hammock.

The fisherman’s story looks like asking whether to pursue a simple life now or later? But to a person like me who has an interest in creating a business empire, I would push the boundary that a balanced life will have both wanting an improved life while practicing self-care at the end of each day.

The epiphany, there is no right or wrong answer. There’s no right or wrong path. There’s only experience that I can enjoy and keep improving. There’s an invitation that right now whatever feels right, be it. And my choice might look completely different than yours and that’s okay.

Our different choices are exactly what makes this world, this universe, and the collective consciousness keep evolving. And that’s perfect and beautiful. Keep honoring your own path!

Irony

In every situation, I can find a suitable quote. It is even funny that one positive quote will have an opposite quote that completely defy one another but both on its own are leaning to a positive wisdom, like the one below:

“Absence make the heart grow fonder.”

“Out of sight, out of mind.”

So what’s going on here? Is the above quote the truest wisdom or is it the one below? Are they both correct?

This goes to show that we can decide which wisdom to follow. We hold the decision for our next move. We are capable of choosing. This is what we’ve called the silver lining. Picking the good lesson to give us the will to keep moving foward positively.

What’s your favourite irony?
