A small insignificant detail could change the meaning of what you understand. If only you could see it.

Write daily to enhance your reality

Writing every day for 365 days, I’ve learned to see the world in richer details.

I’ve bought an Ultra HD 4K HDR TV set.

While watching an innocent how-to-cook TV show, I’ve noticed something with horror. A fly was going from ingredient to ingredient. But from a distance, very small. The vast dimensions of my TV and the astronomical resolution allowed me to see the tiny insect distinctly making a banquet.

What was the initial warming feeling of somebody cooking something good while wasting time having breakfast became a whirlwind of thoughts about that shooting set. How’s the hygiene there? Will they eat that food? Is there anybody aware of that?

A more resolving lens allows us to see more details of reality, and sometimes details we were ignoring before influence our perception heavily.

The same happened when I dedicated long hours to think and write. I was able to appreciate reality through a new lens. What before was quickly put down in a reductionist way, as good or bad, became, then, richer in detail. 

Writing is your 8K Mega HD TV Set. Write to have a richer picture of your world, understand it better, and live it better.

A small insignificant detail could change the meaning of what you understand. If only you could see it.
