Self #257

“Each action we take is an act of self-expression. We often think of large-scale or important deeds as being indications of our real selves, but even how we sharpen a pencil can reveal something about our feelings at that moment. Do we sharpen the pencil carefully or nervously so that it doesn’t break? Do we bother to pay attention to what we’re doing? How do we sharpen the same pencil when we’re angry or in a hurry? Is it the same as when we’re calm or unhurried?

Even the smallest movement discloses something about the person executing the action because it is the person who’s actually performing the deed. In other words, action doesn’t happen by itself, we make it happen, and in doing so we leave traces of ourselves on the activity. The mind and body are interrelated.”

“Cada acción que tomamos es un acto de auto-expresión. A menudo pensamos en gran escala o hechos importantes como ser indicaciones de nuestro verdadero yo, pero incluso la forma en que afilar un lápiz puede revelar algo acerca de nuestros sentimientos en ese momento. Cómo podemos afilar el lápiz con cuidado, o con nerviosismo para que no se rompa? Por qué nos tomamos la molestia de prestar atención a lo que estamos haciendo? ¿Cómo podemos afinar el mismo lápiz cuando estamos enojados o en un apuro? ¿Es lo mismo que cuando estamos tranquilos y sin prisas?

Incluso el más pequeño movimiento da a conocer algo acerca de la persona que ejecuta la acción, ya que es la persona que está en actual ejercicio de la escritura. En otras palabras, la acción no sucede por sí mismo, lo hacemos realidad, y al hacerlo, dejamos rastros de nosotros mismos en la actividad. La mente y el cuerpo están relacionados entre sí.”

Hello, my name is…………. Wait a minute. My name is not important. I’m a wounded soul that loves to write everything that comes to my mind and what's more important, to my heart. I know some of the things I write are stupid and they may not even make sense to other people, but they make sense to me and that’s what matters. I am new to writing on the internet, so if you guys see any mistakes in my writing, please feel free to message me and give me your corrections. I am a firm believer in learning as much as possible from as many people as possible.
