Observe: Peacock

PeacockPeacocks are god’s most magical creatures. I’ve always been fascinated with the fact that male peacocks are the pretty ones. Only today I found out about the Albino peacock. It looks like a giant snowflake, literally.

POM: Honesty

TruthWe always hear that honesty is the way, the key to everlasting relationships and/or friendships, and so on. But is it really the key?

I am an advocate of honesty, most of the time I’m too honest that it gets to into troubles, which really puzzles me; Should I be honest? should I not be honest?

The most crucial thing about this whole riddle is knowing when to and not to be honest. While most of it boils down to the person in question, it partly has to do with the way you “lay it down”.
I know for a fact that most of the times people ask your opinion on something, they want you to choose the answer they want to hear, even if it’s not the one you’d choose. For example, when someone asks you “Do you miss me?” what other than “YES” could you possibly say? Really. IF you don’t miss them, they’d still want to hear you say “YES I DO”, it just makes them feel better even if they know you don’t but having said yes makes all the difference, which is idiotic.

It’s a very confusing world, with many personalities, many patterns, and no one can keep track of everything. This is why I say honesty IS the key, no matter what the consequences are, because in the end people around you will know you were being honest, and most importantly you’ll feel better by just being honest.

I’ll leave you with this gem of a song. Truthfully by Brandy:
Well when they lie
They have to lie again
‘Cause the lying never ends
So

Truthfully
Even if you don’t believe
You will always hear the truth
Come from me
(Baby) I’ll never lie
And you’re the reason why
I will always tell the truth
Cause the truth resides in me

List: 7 Weird Post-death Rituals

CemeteryThere are over a million tribe in our world, and you can only imagine the rituals and traditions of said tribes. Here’s a list of  7 of the weird ways tribes deal with death.

Mountains7. Mountains of Silence
Zoroastrians believe the body is impure and shouldn’t pollute the earth after death through burial or cremation. Instead, the deceased are brought to a ceremonial “tower of silence”, usually located on an elevated mountain plateau, and left exposed to the animals and elements. When the bones have been dried and bleached by the sun, they are gathered and dissolved in lime.

Tree6. Tree Burials
Because ground burials are passé, Indigenous tribes in many parts of the world discovered that the best way of disposing the dead was to put them up high. Groups in Australia, British Columbia, the American southwest and Siberia were known to practice tree burial, which involved wrapping the body in a shroud or cloth and placing it in a crook to decompose.

POM: Masquerade

masquerade_by_zilla774Piece of Mind is a “section” where i’ll write my pieces of mind, what’s bothering me, what’s making me happy..etc.
Masks, not only worn for Halloween. We encounter countless of masks each and every day each and everywhere. Why do some people feel the need to mask their identity to get by in this society? masking it either by looks, acts, or accessories even. Social events, public places, grocery stores, universities, and even gymnasiums are becoming unofficial masquerades with smiles for masks. I’m all for smiles, and being a better person, but what I don’t get is, why when someone you see always smiling, turn into a monster (above) when the lights go out (metaphorically and literally). Firstly, I have seen an awful lot of people in malls, colleagues or old friends at best, run into each other and smile, hug and kiss, but once the leave, they’re facial expression changes dramatically, to an expression of detestation. Secondly, people alter a lot about themselves to adapt to our society, to the point that they’re no recognizable as individuals, they’re just clones of the majority, and when a trend erupts it outpours, whether it’s clothes, places, devices..etc. In conclusion, this is just a piece of my mind, and I hate to see the clones a majority and the individuals a minority.
