Everything I've ever learned...my entire life...can be summed up into one word.
Now, when I say noise, don’t mistake it for the burning rubber and blaring sirens of a 3a.m. variety. I don’t mean the noise of a passing train or of an older woman, originally from Kiev, trying to hustle her grand kids toys and handmade scarves on the busiest street on Brighton. Not the coffee shop or store front noise, or of children wailing either.
None of that good stuff.
As children, loud noises scare us because we don’t understand them; where it comes from, what causes them or why they even come about. As we age, we learn to understand the noise, where it comes from and even learn to create our own noise. We do so up to the point where the noise we experience and the noise in our environment become a part of who we are.
Therefore, it is safe to presume that our fear as adults would be to understand.....
To be surrounded by our own silent thoughts echoing in the confines of our mind is the new noise we fear.
We are only left to understand ourselves, or, the lack of external noise.
In statistics, noise is considered to be an unexpected variation in data which cannot be replicated. Its significance in research is important solely for this purpose; our human experience is subjective, and furthermore, it is numeric proof that we are all unique.
So when you hear the blaring sirens, or walk down the bustling streets.....
to more important things like:
trying something new
climbing the highest heights
falling in love
falling out of love
losing loved ones
and regaining a sense of faith............
Realize that the world around you, the noise in your environment,
Its all secondary.
Its what you learn and its what you experience that is most important.
.......Embrace the noise..........
Embrace an ever changing you.
