A WORLD to TREASURE
In an exclusive and conscious world where approximately 7.888 billion humans reside, the wonders we witness are beyond the scope of our wildest dreams. From the crinkling leaves of trees to the unexplored depths of the ocean, and the mesmerizing color of the blue sky, our planet Earth is a hidden treasure of beauty and wonder. It’s a gift that we must cherish, especially when we have the privilege of experiencing it with all our senses intact.
Imagine waking up to the first sparkle of sunlight, casting bright white flashes across the horizon, illuminating everything with brilliance in its path. This world, in all its glory, often mirrors our state of mind. The beauty we perceive is often a reflection of our inner emotions and thoughts at any given moment. The mere fact of being human, of being alive, and having the ability to indulge in such wonders is a precious gift. A gift given to us by our parents, who brought us into this world to appreciate all that Mother Earth has to offer.
Childhood nights are often associated with the comforting embrace of our beds, where we close our eyes and drift into a peaceful sleep, only to be awakened by the morning light. However, as we transition into adulthood, our perception of the night undergoes a transformation. The darkness of the night no longer signifies rest but becomes a kingdom of exploration. Thanks to human imagination, we’ve crafted a world that comes alive after sundown. Innovations like lighting, heating systems, and well-designed structures shield us from the deadly elements of the night, allowing us to celebrate in the moment. From intimate evening dinners to crowded social gatherings at bars and stimulating heart palpitations at lush nightclubs, the night has a pyramid of experiences waiting to be explored.
Yet, while many of us take pleasure in these visual delights, we must spare a thought for those who cannot. An estimated 43 million individuals across the globe are blind, deprived of the visual experiences that most of us take for granted. Vision, for many, is the primary sense that guides numerous decisions in our lives. Consider the world of advertising, where models showcase products, implicitly suggesting that “this” is the standard of beauty or success. In such a world, where visuals play a crucial role and first impressions are often lasting, can we say that vision is everything?
Or perhaps, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Maybe it’s time for us to fish around deeper, look beyond the surface, and truly understand the core of beauty and experience. After all, beauty isn’t just what we see; it’s what we feel, hear, touch, and perceive.
So, what’s your take on this? Is vision the be-all and end-all, or is there more to our world than what’s visible? Share your thoughts in the comments below…
