Same same but different

erez's picture



Anyone who ever traveled in India is familiar with the phrase "same same but different".

Say you see a nice T-shirt in the window of a shop, you enter the shop and ask the owner for the shirt. He hands you over a shirt which somehow doesn't look exactly like the one in the window. You ask: "Is it the same as the shirt in the window?". "Same same" the man replies. Then you unfold the shirt and find out that it has a different cut and a different print. You say: "no, it is not the same, look!" and he replies: "same same but different".

All auras are beautiful

silencio's picture



All auras are beautiful and therefore all people are.

This does not stem from political correctness,

but from formlessness.

Not from no form,

but from a state of detachment from form.
