11 "Absence of Desire"

12 0 0

Many people of today are convinced, they know the world inside out. They have tasted life in all its aspects and feel now that they are at the end of their tether. They are tired and are no longer able to invent themselves. At most, they are prepared to call upon some gadgets in order to create a pretense of desire. But this is only deception. Nothing can make them want anything or anybody anymore. That feeling of wanting has become absent. That specific feeling has definitely died." The absence of desire has become the metaphor of absence of life. "Absence of Desire" is the stained glass window which opens into the gap of the cathedral of emptiness.

But as light splinters into darkness, new thoughts may take over in the mind and allow upbeat views to gain power. Thus and so, thoughtfulness readily opens a blistering sky in the faltering shadow of unawareness.

When we feel life escapes us and we don't recognize ourselves anymore, we do well to build a safe haven in our frame of mind before the essence of our being, evaporates and the keystones of our mental structure disintegrate.

When we stake a claim, however, to the needs and wants of our life, we may easily fail to live up to the standards of others. Therefore, empathy and connectedness might bridge the gap, by stirring our consciousness of the sensitive queries and by assessing warily the intricate framework of our surroundings with their countless, prickly nitty-gritty's.

When we crave the touch and the feel of an unfeigned world, we must not waver and put our quest on the back burner, but scratch the shining shell of a fair-weather world lucidly, find out how to discover real values; and foster a candid quality of our desire.
