You Will Not Know Me

You will not know me.

Not by wisdom, not by glory, not by my facade.

You will not know me.

By anything.

But my love.

That is where the truth is.

    • It sure can be complicated. But as I age I truly find the simplicity in love is in knowing love.

      Thank you for asking about awards, I no longer do them. I apologize for the time constraints I have.

        • To be fully honest, understanding it doesn’t resolve all of my angst about “everything”. But it helps when it comes to compassion, tolerance and acceptance. And hoping that others feel the same way towards me. πŸ™‚

                  ohh, o.k….yes you afre right it is hard to understand if you do not accept to look from other perspectives on a situation. It is always helpful to try lots of differnent views…..difficult anyway, when you are searching for your own way and you know, that you need to find a balance of acceptance and ignorance of otherΒ΄s needs to survive yourself.

                      oh yes, we are not born perfect and we have to make an effort. Everyone in the way he can. Because we never should forget that the skills of understanding is very different. We have to be careful when judging others and never emanate from oneself. Haha and I am certainly very average of the intelligence and therefore I must write this comment. Because I am often very slow off the mark!

                      I honestly dont see intelligence like that.
                      I mean seriously does it make sense to u that somebody who is fast is intelligent.
                      I mean what if he is fast at making plans to steal stuff from other.
                      Is that intelligence too??? I honestly dont think so

                      No I do not think that intelligence depends on the speed of understanding. But the ability to understand at all. There are things that I can read 1000 times and I just do not get it … I can not follow and get lost in other thought trails that have nothing to do with what is actually going on. I just admire people who can understand a lot and if it is still fast then that is terrific.

                      Hmm understanding theoretical things, science, languages, history…is different, because everything has a kind of logical order, no? To understand people is not something logical, it is not to manage just with your head and mind, you have to feel, what they feel, you need empathy and perhaps you have to forget completely the logical things?

Kind of a social intelligents perhaps…This is surely a skill what some people are better than others, like someone who is better in science than in languages….but by the way respiration is also a very difficult subject..I would say. .πŸ™‚

                      Yes actually
                      But i dont think society has come to a point where we can actually measure intelligence. i mean not lying but when the iq machine came about (to measure intelligence) Hitler used it as a way of ridding the lower cast people ny taking absurd tests.
                      maybe this information is wrong but I watched it on a video by john green or something.
                      Anyways my point here is that, like u said social intelligence nad all that
                      Maybe there are variations of intelligence.
                      Maybe person a is logical wherease person b is emotionally intelligent.
                      But theres is also the thing about perceptions of intelligent.
                      One might think this in t=intelligent whereas the other might thing that is intelligent.
                      But in the end, we were all born ignorant. BUt we have all been given the ability to be intelligent.

                      Hmm, universe fireflie, it’s all about cognitive abilities that can go into many areas. Solving something with logical reasoning is one thing but also assessing the “illogical” based on feelings is an interpersonal thing.
                      Of course, there are tests and they are certainly not bad in the meantime. Man creates and explores so much, but you will never completely understand the human being. The universe is infinite and every living thing is a little miracle of the universe. How should one fully explore the infinite? It’s like trying to recite the numbers to the end.
                      I do not think it’s important to be intelligent. It is more important to me to be loved for what I am. And if I’m stupid, I can still be adorable. Yes and we are all ignorant. It is precisely through our cognitive abilities that we always strive for better, always wanting to generate an advantage, use power and act selfishly … a thing that must always be weighed up.

                      oh yes, that sounds good. I think my thoughts are limitless, my dreams and what I believe in too. To bring everything into harmony with life, to dare to be unconventional, to give up old habits and ways of life, that is really difficult, especially when one is older and life is already tied up on all sides!

                      that is the most annoying part when people say its a phase and u would grow to become and adult and then u would be more realistic.

                      no, that is definitely not a phase, that’s a quality that you have as a human being. A beautiful thing is to find people who also dream and realize their dreams with them. It is working. I have already experienced that in art and in life. Of course, it depends on the dreams and on the partner or partners. What are you dreaming of…is it easy for your mind to say, it is possible, or does your mind always say, there is no way? Do you really want to realize your dream and live the dream in reality, even if you realize that the lived dream will be different? Or are you a person who just loves dreaming and does not want to destroy the dream by becoming a reality?
                      That is very important to know in my opinion. I had the dream to live in the south and near by the sea. I live that dream now, and I’m happy, even if the reality does not look like walking barefoot all day in the hot sand on the beach …; Dreams are sweet, romantic and full of love …. Reality is a compromise, but it can come very close to the dream, so for me it is always the right way to try to make dreams true.
