Cool Isn't Always Cool - Motivation & Inspiration - by Alfred





Psalm 1:1-2 KJV
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. [2] But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.


   Do you want to be cool? Do you want to look cool? Do you want people to think you are cool?
   I'm about to share with you something that would shock you.
   Let's look at the definition of cool.
   No! not from the dictionary, but what it is meant when someone says it in popular sentences that include it.


WHEN THE WORD COOL IS USED IN POPULAR SENTENCES:

1) You look cool.

That means you are dressed according to the trending fashion of the day.

So you have reached out of your (own unique personality in your clothing choices) to become something (temporary) with the hope that people would accept your appearance more favorably.
  
That's sad. You have traded your personality in your fashion choices for a 'fictional - general - trending and temporary' personality.

2) Your dress is cool.

This means your dress is OK!

You see how the word 'Cool' means something completely different and positive here even though the sentences look so similar, and the word 'Cool' could hardly be looked upon as a word that could convey two extremely different meanings.

It is so positive in the second example, as opposed to the first example.

I could give more 'Sentence Examples' to illustrate my point further, but it all boils down to whenever "Cool" isn't used as a substitute for "Ok!", it's basically bad.

    Cool isn't something you should try to be. It shouldn't be something you aspire to.
     Anytime you aspire to be cool or do something that makes you cool, it means you traded your own uniqueness to become a poor copy of what many other people are pretending to be.


     DON'T BE COOL. BE UNIQUE. Then you'll be Ok! (Cool) Always.

Don't Ask God How - a poem by Pastor Alfred

Don't ask God how, just take the first step/
God's dream for our dreams are too big to comprehend/
They always scare us and exceed boundaries of common sense/
Does God think more of us than we think of ourselves?/
If we stand and reason how to reach our Reserved Seat on Mountains/
Reality would get off its seat and slap us upside the head/...
