The Power of Words
Behind the screen we can be our most natural self. I think the computer screen gives us so much comfort that we don’t have to fear of nervousness sinking in our heart and limbs. We don’t have a single shiver of confusion.
The words flow so smoothly and in line. I think we are most honest and ourselves online than anywhere else. But we can so easily lie too in this world that people think is virtual. The world that is virtual but inhabited by the same people who inhabit earth in real. I don’t know how they can be different.
I don’t know if I can say on the face of a man that I want to kiss him—if I want to. But I think, on the net I can. And this simplicity reduces our hearts to the meek order of giving truth.
Words—that is more powerful than feelings—I think it gives our hearts a twist that allows our hearts to carry home a piece of legacy from the day. It gives us so much comfort. It stimulates our minds. And it stimulates our imagination. They are all power of words. But they inherently are power of our minds. Once they come out of our mind, they never sink back without a trace on earth.
I don’t know if I confused you. What I’m saying is that, over the net, you can so gently be an honest human and lay bare your heart. But the feeling generated remains juxtaposed in the same position—our heart. The feelings generated in real remain there too.
