What ‘Grey’ Teaches Us!

How used to we are in seeing things as White or Black! In life, however, there exists little  of a complete White and complete Black! There exists a mixture of both – The Grey!

Grey is the in-between! Grey encompasses the Good and the Bad! According to the popular metaphorical notions, White is the representative of Good and Black is the representative of Bad. In theories, Good or Bad is well-defined. We know whether an action is appropriate according to the societal norms by reading a religious (not spiritual ) book!  Yet, little does the practical life recognize how to differentiate between Good and Bad … it knows that which encompasses both – The Grey!

This brings us the very integral question of what is Good and Bad? Most importantly, who decides the difference between the two? What is Good for me, may or may not, be good for you and vice-versa.

In life, however, there exists little  of a complete White and complete Black! There exists a mixture of both – The Grey!

Critical Life experiences bring change in thoughts, in our strong beliefs and, at times, even in our value system. They break our rigid norms of Black and White and open us to the wide spectrum of the Grey! Such a Grey may have more Black little White or more White little Black.

Grey, thus, is beyond limitations. It teaches a very important lesson that life is not a destination, it is a journey which has to be spanned with an understanding that we are humans and humans make mistake! It teaches us to look beyond our shortcomings and be in peace with who we are right now. Most importantly, it brings helps us understand that ‘more White’ or ‘less White’, we all are the same…we all are Grey!

  1. Hey Heet!

    Beautifully penned, indeed. Very true. Grey should be the choice. In the process of finding white and black we do not justify; rather we become judgmental. There is a very thin line of difference between justifying and judging which human brain can’t discriminate unless we see it in others – again judging whether the other person is right or wrong – white or black. I feel there is nothing right or wrong in this world. It’s all about the perspectives. ‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’. Something that seems white to me might seem black to you but maturity is when it seems ‘Grey’ to both of us. Thanks for confirming my perspective on life and giving it a name – Grey! :*

    Love,
