Metaphysics of 'Yes' and 'No' …


                              Metaphysics of 'Yes' and 'No'…

        These two short words, Yes and No comes before us as a pair of alternative, which gives the resilience of perception and inspire hype from the reality to prosper & grow.

        As everyone knows, ‘Yes’ as a word of affirmation or consent, and ‘No’ a word of denial or not at all…

        However, my attempt is to reinvent Yes & No, from where our actions & reactions get the direction of movement, to reach the desired destination.
        It is on the basis of these two natural assets- Yes or No; we attend our progress & perfection; struggle & survival, at any given stage. Even stands as a hallmark of any citizen’s life and determines the movement & contents of one’s development…

        Therefore, jurisprudence between yes & no has a great impact in our life, because it can completely change a situation, circumstances, condition or consequences… On the other hand, no individual can stand or endure with half yes or half no. That is, in course of the choice between alternatives good or bad. And for this identification of good & bad we need knowledge and experience, besides need for evaluating a social interaction to make the choice suitable & perfect.

        To make it interesting, let’s address the topic from a different angle:

        Consider any individual as a ‘Climber’ and the two effective options Yes & No as ‘Helper’ & ‘Hinderer’…

        Now, it is expected that, between ‘helper or ‘hinderer’ i.e. Yes or No, either of them smoothly pushes the ‘Climber’ up or down. But the climber every time inclined to avoid the ‘hinderer’, because of the natural choice of affinity towards getting declined. As it appears that, ‘helper’ and ‘hinderer’ was performing opposite actions…

        It is still a preferred option to reach the ‘helper’, but often changes to approach ‘hinderer’ to make the approach reverse. Means, the ‘Climber’ who seeks support of the ‘helper’ and avoid the ‘hinderer’. However, both Yes & No have equal opportunity to become helper or hinderer as per merit of a particular action.

        To decide the choice, it brings out the capacity to function judgmentally what is right & good with character, in a situation where the ‘Climber’ has the stake of claim. Besides, the social evaluation may also be the basis for development of a sense of moral judgment between the concepts of right & good. And this identification of good Vs bad through Yes or No deserves adequate knowledge and experience.

        Therefore, it’s Yes & No as two short words, which needs a long thought. Most of things we miss in life are because of saying No too early and Yes too late.

        Hope, everyone will give due emphasis to have pleasure instead of pain, from any preference as explained…
