True Colors

Today I found out that I’m green. That means I seek knowledge and understanding; I need explanations and answers; I value intelligence, insight, fairness and justice; I am a natural non-cnformist, a visionary, a problem solver. That sounds good, but could I not be blue? Don’t I need to feel unique and authentic? Don’t I look for meaning and significance in life? Don’t I need to contrubute, to encourage and to care? Don’t I value integrity and unity in relationships? Am I not a natrual romantic, a poet, a nurturer? A fivefold yes! But hey, lets not settle down yet, what about orange: I can act on a moment’s notice – I did last weekend when my friend called and asked if I want to go for a beer! I do consider life as a game, here and now. I do need fun, variety, stimulation and excitement – that’s why I go to the mountains every weekend and fly all over the world whenever I get a chance. I definitely value skill, resourcefulness and courage – I think everybody does. And to a certain degree I can see myself as being a natural trouble shooter, a performer, and definitely a competitor. And last but not least I should also try to see if the gold fits: I don’t mind following rules and respecting authority as long as they are reasonable and not stupid. I would say I have a strong sense of what is right and wrong in life. And for sure I want to be useful and belong, who doesn’t? I value home, family and tradition – that’s why I go home every chance I get. I’m not sure if I’m a natural preserver, definitely not a parent, but I like to see myself as a helper. So in conclusion I can be any color really. I’m all over the spectrum. I’m so multicolor that I should be a rainbow.

    And all the colours in the rainbow can be recombined using a prism to form white light! Or all the colours pigments can be mixed with a brush to form black. You choose 😀

    I think you should do the same reverse analysis to discover your astrological sign. You’ll be shocked to find out that since you can easily fit all 12 profiles, you are a mix of a crab/lion/twin/etc, an abominable creature of sorts.

    That’s great, because only the multicolored person can truly appreciate the multicolored beauty of life. It looks like you’ve got a pretty good idea of who you are. The next step is staying true to your colors, which isn’t always easy in a world that’s increasingly becoming a melting-pot of everything from values to merchandise (think globalization). Which reminds me — I happened to see a rainbow a few days ago. To me it’s a reminder that there can be beauty after the storm.

    JBM – I like your comment about mixing rainbow colors to make either white or black light. A very, very clever and interesting observation. 🙂

    Well, I think I choose white because I like brightness. I know that every person is more or less a mixture of different colros or zodiac signs. that’s why categorizing will never truelly work because people are unique like snowlflakes. Betsy I really like your observation that only multicoloured person can appreciate the multicoulorness of life. It’s worhwhile to point out to some of the ppl.

    True colors? Is this one of those ‘What is your life color?’ quizzes?

    Descartes had it wrong when he said “I think, therefore, I am.” It is more accurate to just say “I am”, because we all exist beyond conscious thought.

    Think of the voices you hear in your head sometimes if you think. What part of you is aware of those voices? What part of your mind allows you to hear those voices? That is the true you.

    oh do you often hear those voices? that’s a little bit disturbing…

    if thinking was a prerequisite to existence the world would be an empty place 😉
