Paint the World Red by Ujjwal Trivedi - Philosophy

This is a section from Triiibes' 'Color and Form', a freely distributed eBook available to view and download on Scribd or here.

"And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth." - Kahlil Gibran.

If one could paint everything with his heart, won't it be all red? As much as it is important to love your work, it is essential to do what you love to do. It shapes you and brings the inner you out. Most of the time it helps me to solve my dilemma when I seek an answer to the question, "How would I do it, if I were to use it." If I don't enjoy writing it, how will someone else enjoy reading it?

Important as it is to create with love, it's significant to use with love. Use it as if it was created just for you, by your beloved. Have you cared to notice the subtleties of a product or service, and to appreciate the little things that has gone into creating it? It may be the small clip that stands on your PC keyboard, or a grasp handle above the rear seat window of your car. You probably don't look out for these nuances when you are buying. They do not affect the buying decision of customers, still, designers care about adding that little touch of comfort. When you don't use with love, the use is incomplete. The full message intended has not transferred from soul to soul. It is like responding to a smiling voice with another one. Both don't know each other or see the smiles but still the conversation becomes refreshing.

Everything in the world is colorless. We paint it with our perceptions. What looks green to me may be blue for a colorblind and black for a blind. When we are happy everything looks bright and when we are sad even the sun looks dull. Every morning we rise up with a paintbrush in our hands and paint the world. Every morning we wake up with pen and write our own story. The secret to being happy is to take charge and paint the world with colors that we love to see. So why shouldn't we open our hearts and paint it RED!

Philosophy - Living Color by Alan Parr

This is a section from Triiibes' 'Color and Form', a freely distributed eBook available to view and download on Scribd or here.

How beautifully leaves grow old. Their last days are a dazzling show of light and color. They rejoice in their true hues, uncovered at last. If we knew that we had more past than future, would we show our true colors?

The things we mean to say are put on hold; we listen to our internal muzak until just the right moment presents itself and more likely we blink and miss it. When all our mind’s lines are currently busy, those colorful words that reveal our true identity - words of humility, of joy, of sorrow - those words are never allowed to see the light of day. We pretend to reveal our opinions, coloring our politics red or blue. But, to be fair, these are really only surrogates for black and white. There’s more to us than that, isn’t there? Why do we conserve our emotions, horde our ideas, stash our wants and desires in the far flung corners of ourselves? Those little crocks of gold are landmarks of happiness we one day hope to unearth. Yet nothing stays the same, colors change. When will the time be right?

There is not a color in this world – sky, flower, earth – that is not here to enrich our lives. Living color; rich and deep. The natural world is free with its emotions, holding nothing back. It’s all out there, all of it, beautifully expressed in the vibrant language of color. But we tend to shy away from what is going on in the larger world around us. In the drabness of our beige offices and khakis, we insist that we are not part of that primitive display. We hold ourselves back, veiling our true colors. Why?
