The Curtain Philosophy: The way we see the world.

                    Have you ever felt like the way you see things, no one else does? Consider this. Every person lives a unique life, has different kinds of experiences in their lifetime. There are different types of people, creative, intuitive, sentimental, assertive, turbulent etc. Thus everyone develops a unique perspective when analyzing things. A simple way of understanding these different perspectives is by use of some imagination.

                There are always many curtains in front of us, through which we see the world. Everyone is capable of removing a certain set of curtains and thus, the world looks entirely different to everyone. Every curtain that you remove helps you see an entirely different picture of the world that you have never seen before. A better picture. Try to remove as many curtains as possible and only then can you see how wonderfully this world is carved.

                    These curtains are like ones' prejudices, lack of knowledge and reflex behaviours developed by experiences and seeing different peoples' reactions to certain things, especially the ones they grew up with. They make them oblivious to what's in front of them. For example, consider a bird with broken leg. People can see it differently and the way they see it seems to be the better way for them. One can see the bird and think of it as a delicious meal. Or, some can see that the bird is in pain and it is best to help it recover and get some first aid. While there will be others who will not even notice the bird and/or the broken leg. Here, the curtains could be time, lack of empathy, personal issues, random thoughts etc. 

                    The curtains acts as barriers between you and the real world. You see what you want to see and the way you want to see it. You can see good in bad, bad in good or nothing at all. It all depends on what you want to see. You are closer to becoming perfect when you can see these curtains and manipulate them as and when required. Removing all the curtains shows you how the world really is. By using different sets of curtains you can see different aspects of it. This will give you a whole new horizon to develop your own best suited perspective of the world as you see it.
