An aphorism, I believe, should never be completely explained and/or unveiled by the author. An aphorism is a wonderful tool to help us explore our own internal world, partly due to the aphorisms own incompleteness; allowing us to question and tease forward our own thoughts, beliefs and revelations.
However, having said this, I have decided to share some of my thoughts and inspirations behind a few of my aphorisms; just as a way of sharing. If you so choose, you can read on.
I put a call out on facebook a few years ago when I was contemplating the truth of this potential aphorism. I challenged anyone to prove my theory wrong – I needed someone to prove me wrong, because fishing around in my head for alternate perspectives is a very limited exercise.
However, all who responded with a scenario, I was able to prove wrong through the filter of this perspective: Conflict will only arise if one or both parties try to control how the other ‘should’ think and/or behave.
My aphorisms are always up for evaluation to myself. Always – obsessively in fact (and if you’ve read the ‘about’ about me, then I feel you understand).
So, I welcome any scenario where you feel this does not apply – lets explore!
