Follow Great Footsteps Perspective
“You always have an option to opt between,
‘You will always remember’ and ‘You will never forget’.”
“I feel though they both mean the same, second one is more strong.” Prakesh –
for joining in
This is as philosophical as I can get at 8 a.m. in the morning,on a Saturday.
I have to say I agree with Prakesh on this one.
Even though both are technically the same in meaning.
In my experience, remembering or trying to re call facts can be way too energy and time consuming.
Thoughts get scrambled.
Other thoughts jump in and hook up with the others and the memory becomes more of a sketch of what happened. The trying to remember is more subject to manipulation.
To me, to ‘never forget ‘is so much more potent – because this is when an experience happens,where all the data and thoughts at the moment it happens is crystallised for all eternity.
It gets filed under ‘memories not to be fucked with’.
Other thoughts can’t get in that drawer .
It is bolted.
More often the key get’s misplaced. It gets put in the fruit bowl or in that favourite pair of jeans pocket- -never the same place.
NO SAT NAV
Even if my thoughts want to scramble the bolted memories with a shot of what ever other thought. It’s not going to happen.
I can only liken this quote to :
I was once attacked at knife point with a friend. I remember bright lights, there was a group of people, a sensation of a tug on my jeans ,the sound of a blunt blade cutting off my friends back pack.
Everything is hazy.
Details like what the people looked like – I couldn’t tell you.
Were they bigger than me?
Possibly because other thoughts have dominated and questioned that night and diluted the memories.
One thing that other thoughts can’t scramble is my ‘memories not to be fucked with’.
I can never forget the primitive fight and flee feel of fear.
It’s imprinted on Me like some one took a boot to my head. These kind of memories leave deep scars. If I walk alone in a dark place at night on my own. This fear feeling will come up . It won’t let me forget.
I think the things that are harder to forget are the things that arrest us – immobilize us. Stop us from moving.
KNOCK US SENSELESS
Details are changeable . I can read a book and suddenly have a new take on what the scene looked .
It is only when I am forced to stop,this is the time I am likely to form a memory that takes hold and cements.
Other memories like-
the name of the road.- don’t have the same “possession kudos” that a frozen memory does.
Thank you so much Prakesh!
A man with degrees up to his ears in the technology arena. He then decides he needs to be dabble his hand in the arts sector and becomes a wizard with a flair for all things pertaining to the heart too.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Only joking. 🙂
I say he is a wizard because of quotes like these of his.
