My linguistic research I’m working on made me ponder upon these two notions, simple & complicated at the same time. In fact, what are we, people of the hi-tech reality? How much do we feel the essence Creator has put into us? How much do we follow our own path?
Everybody comes into the material world pure. He is a tabula rasa, strongly connected with the Divine. While we’re still children, we support it in a magic way. We’re open, honest, because we’re always ourselves. We don’t know the art of pretending, except too old or too spoiled Souls. And one day the Spiritual bridge between the Divine and us vanishes. We notice something has changed. We feel it very clearly and it perplexes us. We get older, more socialized and step by step we lose the Divine or replace it deliberately with morals and values of the hi-tech world, considering them far important. It’s strange…We escape from God, from purity, from ourselves.
Then the time of masks comes. We try various selves, we change them together with seasons, always hungry for something new, astonishing, with a certain air of importance. And we never do it to please ourselves. Due to unknown reason we’re convinced that these selves will help us to get what we need, to establish contacts, to make people around like us more. No matter that our milieu doesn’t often size us up. We have no time to ponder upon that. All we know is that we must be like them and unique at the same time. That’s how we lose the self-identity.
Whenever we chose seeming and pretending, something important dies in the bosom. There are no two similar stones, rain drops or flowers petals in the world. Then why are people dissatisfied so much with their uniqueness and don’t cultivate their own character? Why do they put so much effort to seem when they could simply be…
