Ending Emotions

Everybody has emotions. Some of us are aware of our emotions, we can acknowledge them and can be conscious of what we feel. Only in this manner we can fully experience our inner self, by being in the present moment, by observing how our emotions interact with our perceptions.  It is very interesting to observe the human ending emotion. What do they feel when something ends.  Are you at peace, do you resist, even if you know that the end will come no matter what you do.

Dark ignorance

An age is called Dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it. ~JAMES MICHENER

Humans are emotional beings, they act, react, interact based on their emotions. It is a true accomplishment to control your own emotions, to change them, or simply to ignore their existence. But what if you manage to do that, what do you become? a robot?

In my opinion every emotion, no matter how good or bad you find it, is good to be felt and experienced at the highest intensity possible. But for some it is easier to think “whatever” and be ignorant.

My state of mind on Sunday afternoon:

Life is a repetitive string of moments and our power lies in how we act in these moments.

Modern door lock design

Have you ever struggled to put the key into the door lock in poor light conditions? Now with the help of the designer Junjie Zhang this action can be simplified very much. The new V-Shaped door lock has a channel that guides the key straight into the lock without any hassle. I’m very curious how much will this kind of lock last, due to the friction that is involved when inserting the key. A good alternative to this system is the door handle with led, that lights the key hole with a press of a button.

This simple and effective design improves the functionality of the old door lock.

Some pictures of the V-Shape modern door lock below:
