That’s Nonsense

How many times do we hear “that’s nonsense” in our lives? And how many times does it stop our creative juices and make us conform?

I believe “that’s nonsense” should give birth to more creativity because it only shows the limited imagination and closed mind of the one who makes this declaration. It is only the ones who believe in “the impossible – nonsense for some” who are ready for incredible discoveries and out-of-the-box thinking.

When Galileo Galilei announced heliocentrisme, it was rejected, and I am sure many scientists of his time classified it as “nonsense”. How could it be? It was absurd. And we know now that he was right.

In modern times, Steve Job was seen as a hippie, and many looked at his vision as “nonsense”. But he manifested a changed world and created Apple. He realized his dream and didn’t pay attention to the nonsense proclaimers. Blackberry leads the pack of losers. And that’s what we all should do. Our dreams can be small or big, there are no limits, except the ones you establish or allow others to insert into your belief system.

I love this quote from Dr. Seuss: “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cell”.

Often, “that’s nonsense” just means you have met someone with a limited mind, a person who is boxed in and cannot see beyond. Trust your dreams, intuition and creativity, and as long as you nurture them with the lifeblood of your confidence and faith, they will manifest.

“That’s Nonsense” is just an opinion and as long as you don’t accept it as a judgment and verdict, it is just words. It only limits the person who believes that other people know more. Of course there is a lot of nonsense that is based on ignorance and conspiracy theories. When confronted with them, I just listen without judgment or comment. We all have the freedom to think and be who we want to be, but we also have the freedom to walk away when something doesn’t feel good.

    A saying I’ve always disliked for it invalidates, kills joy…it does however show you the limitations of the person saying it, sometimes very helpful information when choosing people to have in your life that are close to you, or should be kept maybe at a distance. Great topic Silvia!
