Reflections, Inspirations and Perceptions (Post#1) : Cemetery of Negativism in Focus

One of the photos on this had been published under the category of photo theme “Something To Look At” post which can be found here. This time, I will further elaborate the details of the cemetery based on my thoughts opinion and my understanding. Maybe the idea is not the whole worlds truth but it’s my truth.

It is interesting that someone had thought about creating a cemetery of negativism. Even though the idea was came from American soldier (Commander Major John Hightower), his thoughts through humour are still something to ponder. When I saw the name of the cemetery, at first I was curious and then I walked further if I can see more. Then I found different tablet inscriptions and to my surprise there are more ideas engraved in the tablet.

Here are the following inscribe thoughts about negativity.

1. BOSS WONT LETTUCE
A GREAT IDEA – 22 MAY 1907
HILTED 1 SEPT. 1909

IMG_0728

This kind of thought usually happens when we tried to put our selves in our boss shoes based on his/her character that we thought we know. This also occurred when we knew that there are confidence issues in the (our) idea or in the (our) capacity to accomplish things.

2. HOSPITAL
DOANNA SET A PRECEDENT
HIS PASSING WAS THAT OF A PRECEDENT

IMG_0729

I really like this idea. Because most us of are afraid of failures, we are looking of something as basis through example, model, rules or standards that we can use so we are not solely to blame in the future. A very nice tactic to use to justify ourselves when we compromise.

3. KANTDU NUTHIN WRIGHT
BORN DEC 5, 1905 DIED JUNE 14, 1903

IMG_0730

This is also a confidence and trust issues. Thoughts like this only hold on to proven success. Failures are thought only as wrong things where in fact it has positive effect based on the way we perceived things. It’s not only victory or triumph teach us something even failure as well.

4. IMN ONLY CHILE
BORN 27 MARCH 1908
DIED BEFORE HIS BROTHER

IMG_0731

This one is used for a reasoning of doing inferior things. When we had done it, we are trying to escape to be accountable on something that is not right. Or we are trying to deny the responsibility being assigned to us even we haven’t started yet to prove what we can.

5. JUST KANT SHAKIT
BORN 5 OCT 1919
DIED OF PASSIVITY 20 MAY 1913

IMG_0732

This is the kind of thought when we started doing something and we can’t finish it because of so many reason, whether we don’t like what we’re doing or can’t finish it on time. It also symbolises the level of our hope of achieving things.

6. EYE FORE GOT
BORN HUMBLY DIED SOMETIME

IMG_0733

A very senseless justification for not able to do things irregardless of reasons. We are aware of our jobs and responsibilities and the thought above is weightless of making out of it.

7. A TRUELY MISERABLEDAY
BORN IN GLOOM

LIVED WITHOUT BLOOM

BURIED IN THIS TOMB

IMG_0734

Never thought about good things. The whole mind clouded of bad things and never realised there’s always of a window for second chance. It’s similar to loosing hope perception.

8. WHY DIDENT I?
BORN ????
LIVED WONDERING WHY
DIED FOR NO REASON

IMG_0735

This thought is something of not taking chances because of some reasons. And this usually happens when the opportunity has been lost. Well take the chance again when it comes, if it will come again, right? You know for yourself the probability of chances that it will come.

9. KNOT A TEEMPLAER
BORN A STAR
LIVED A METEOR
DIED IN FLAMES

IMG_0736

This thought is looking too much on perfection and having inferiority complex leads to this. But to be honest, perfection always starts from simple one, perfection always requires time and devotion so do no used it as escape goat for not doing great things.

10. WONT B. USED
STARTED: 10 DECEMBER 1906
ABANDONED: 14 DECEMBER 1906

IMG_0737

Predicting or analysing too much of things that will happen in the future is really an activity that used so much energy. Future is beyond our control but we can affect whats in front of us right now.

11. ITZ NOT POSSIBLE
CONCEIVED 11 NOV, 1905
STILL NOT BORN

IMG_0738

Most of the inventions that people made in our time had struggle of impossibility but looking around in our world, we are living in modern time because a lot of the inventors breakaway that thought. Without trying we will not achieve anything and for me, there is no harm of trying unless we are really lazy to do it.

12. KNOW DAM WAY
CONCEIVED NEW YEARS EVE
DIDN’T WORKOUT

IMG_0739

Thinking about disappointing when it comes to result, we can only guess what can happen in the outcome of the thing we do, we may influence the result but we cannot tell what is going to happen.

13. UHAFTO OR ELSE
BORN OF INTIMIDATION
LIVED IN RESENTMENT
DIED WITHOUT FAME

IMG_0740

Doing things because we have no choice or because we are forced to is one way of implying that there is no really choice which is wrong. In everything there is always a choice. Reasoning something like that is one way of showing we are afraid of something. This happens to everyone I am not excluding myself.

14. LETZ STUDY IT
DELAYED BIRTH
STEP CHILDHOOD
NEVER REACHED MATURITY

IMG_0741

Not knowing of things is not really enough point of argument to not doing things. Sometimes discovery happens from accident. Making reasons of not know is not justified. Being resourceful is better.

15. WILL NOT LAST
BORN 3 JUNE 1906
AND DIDN’T

IMG_0742

This is the same of not having trust or confidence on someone or something. Having faith on something is really propounding but faith alone is not enough, something must be done and not just waiting.

16. BLAME ME WILL YA
ADOPTED 4 JULY 1911
RETURNED 5 JULY 1911

IMG_0743

The thought above is usually used to end discussion or argument and sometimes the start of fight or understanding. Taking responsibility like this way is not really enough, it has to be clear how to make things right.

THE LOST CEMETERY

The wisdom of negativity and whom it came from.
