Essence

Essence shows the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, which determines its character. Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not’ Everything that's created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness, in your art your soul is the essence you put in your work. The essence of travel is the journey, essence of the traveller is exploration. The essence of music is serenity but more often than not, old songs with old memories bring nostalgia. The ocean has an untiring and unwavering essence. It tells you no matter how many times your waves break, always come back for the shore. The energy of the mind is the essence of life. And curiosity is the essence of human existence. 'Who are we? Where are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?' “I don't know. I don't have any answers to those questions. I don't know what's over there around the corner. But I want to find out.” Humans are curious beings. We look at a beautiful thing and instinctively want to find everything there is to know about it. We look at the stars and dream of wings.
