A Young Grape

Thursday, 15 December 2016






“If you awaken from this illusion and you understand black implies white, self implies other, life implies death. You can feel yourself not as a stranger in the world, not as something here on vacation, not as something that has arrived here by fluke. But you can begin to feel your own existence as absolute. What you are basically deep deep down, far far in is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself”

I may not be a fine wine but a young grape doesn’t necessarily mean the bottom of the barrel. Ironically an age-old question, but does age really matter? Or does it depend on the point of view. If someone comments on you based on your age then that person may not know you well enough to have an opinion of you at all, but base everything they think on your years walking. We can get caught in the thinking that a person is defined by age, but then you aren’t looking at the human in front of you. Just like we are not defined by skin colour or origin, age doesn’t describe nor define a soul. Age does not show maturity or experience and defining someone else by their age in fact shows possible immaturity on one part. It is not the way we are built that shows who we are, it is the way we act towards others. We all learn to walk and talk and mostly to read and write and stages in our life that consist of milestones and steps towards growing up. It’s funny that we don’t measure anything else after we hit 21, as then we are on our own and have to ourselves measure our successes and milestones in our heads, relating only to what we think is right or should be right or how others say we should live. When to get a job or travel or start a career or even have children. However this does not give anyone the right to judge others decisions based on their own altercations with life or timing or choices. So next time you feel yourself judging someone based on age, just imagine if numbers didn’t exist, what else would you base your judgement on?
Sometimes even an aged, fine wine may have a bitter aftertaste….
