Some great expectations

A great hope or expectation is not great because of its intensity in our mind. It is great rather because it surpasses the mind and plunges into an imaginative building which imitates the real life.

For this reason, the disappointment felt after our expectations failed is not a problem of our mind, but of our life.

It becomes harder to live further all those facts of life which were imaged in the failed expectation in a positive light. Moreover, those facts were primarily borrowed from the hardness of life in the subtle series which can be conceived only by imagination. Such subtlety cannot be met by simply living.

Therefore, the hope cannot be reversible: we cannot hope and then to stop from doing this and to live as if we did not hope. Our life is changed for ever by our hopes.

And though we know that hopes make our life difficult to live, they are still preserved. Not only because we wait for their fulfillment, but also because the use of a realistic view of life is only a part of our life, even if it might possess the whole truth.

Morbid fatness

Since fatness is colder because of the lack of sanguine vessels or of vitality, we may say that any expansion of body has a morbid feature.

The coldness shows itself morbid in the innermost part of the body. For instance, when we shiver because of coldness, the movements of the body come out from inside.

Meanwhile, the ailing thinness weakens the body until it becomes exposed to the outer influences. In fact, it becomes liable to the expansion of the surrounding things and it comes to them using its unhindered hotness of the sanguine vessels which are easily observable under the skin.

Thus, the leanness point to an outer morbidity of the world as such. Since the world cannot be entirely dead, the thinness keeps some vitality in spite of its morbidity.

And we may add that any accumulation of goods, since it is as if we would weight more, bears on a deep morbidity. The renouncement to them, though kills the social relations, still keeps a higher vitality.

Moments of Vanity

If we exclude the chronological quantification of time, the moment will not longer express the shortest duration, but rather a determination of the life itself.

For understanding that meaning, it is required to pay attention to the occasions when we view a part of our life as a moment. Because only chronologically speaking the moment is identical with the second.

Otherwise, ‘the moment’ is used for naming a gap in the continuous course of life.

But through that gap we really taste somehow from what is not life. An interrupted life cannot be still the life itself.

Thus, when we qualify something as a moment, we do this along with the conscience that it is in fact a dead moment. Therefore, we speak about moments of life mostly when they have already passed away.

When someone tries to make from his life a series of happy moments, their interlacing cannot be the same as the continuum of life. For this reason, it will be an artificial edifice.

We clearly see this when we observe the luxury goods. All of them are meant to inspire happy moments. But they also inspire vanity, a word derived from the Latin vanus, ‘empty, without substance’, i.e. the same emptiness of the dead moments.

The luxury products save the men from feeling the emptiness of the human attempt to live beautiful moments just because their interlacing is similar the continuum of life. Otherwise, a single or a few luxury products, as well as the focus on the moments of life cannot prevent the conscience of the futility of life.

On the contrary, a better way of living beautiful moments is to abandon the searching for them. Thus, they may come as a part of the living continuum of life.

Overloaded moments

If we analyze a moment of our life, we will find that it has to carry on a huge amount of duties which cannot be split into tiny parts, too.

Almost all the duties of our life, for ourselves and for other people, press on us for being fulfilled in every moment. For instance, the duty of loving others cannot be delayed any moment. Or who could say that his life goals can be delayed, since we know that we cannot establish the duration of our life?

Such duties cannot be divided into bits. They indistinctly spread from the past to the future. So, it is impossible to say that in a moment we fulfill a bit from a duty and thereafter another one.

For this reason, the overloaded moments of our life rather make us to try to escape from the hard duties. As a result of such attempts, the actions we do for their fulfillment often seem merely to imitate what we must to do. After some stages of life, we may discover that we wrongly did almost all we had proposed to do. And the resignation is possible whenever we remember how difficult was to manage the overloaded moments.

Natural conspiracies

The existence of a conspiracy is primarily testified not by a common design for doing secretly one thing with a false appearance, but by the simple fact that some people act together.

When two persons meet and act together, it is supposed that each of them left out his or her individuality. But who could really do this?

Since the individual nature of a person means her existence as such, any claimed renouncement is in fact a lie.

The difficulty of living with such a lie is released by using the lie against someone else than the persons who claim their alliance.

For instance, it is a common image that the real lovers love each other more when there is an enemy or hindrance with which they should fight.

When the alliance or the group is greater, the lie which keeps the people together will have a greater enemy, too.

Nonetheless, any personal lie concerning your own individuality, for instance, when you suppose that you are more than an individual animal and build yourself a high ideal, feeds itself with the feeling that most of the people are your enemies.

No questions about sources

When are we interested in discovering the source of information?

When we have to do with usual sources of information, people generally use to take the source into account. But their effort is minimal, sometimes a simple look, without any similarity with the serious or tedious strive for discovering something.

We attempt to discover the source only when the process of discovery make us to belief that we have a privileged status of finding what is concealed to others.

Because it requires a less effort, many prefer to abandon their own effort of discovering the sources of information and to receive the explanation offered by those who claim they discovered it.

If those self-claimed discoverers want to be believed they don’t need to offer elaborate explanations, but only to show that all their hearers are privileged by receiving the information.

In this way, we can explain why the religious believers do not try to discover the sources of their faith. Since they believe that they are privileged or chosen, the pleasure of discovering is already consumed.

Whimsical communication

When you ask someone for hearing you, it is involved a real characteristic of speaking and hearing.

Since it is a sign of  someone’s bodily constitution, the voice cannot be purified from all traits of personal corporeality. And the hearing cannot do this, too.

Therefore, when the voice is meant to be heard by somebody else, the traits of at least two impenetrable personal bodily constitutions are clashing each other.

From this point of view, there are not many chances of communication. And for this reason, we often tolerate the verbal conflicts as parts of communication, since their absence would affect severely the common and false belief that humans are in a continual state of communication.

In fact, the real communication is possible whenever two men succeed in ceasing to act in virtue of their individual bodily composition. And since we are our body, it should be ceased the very fact of being ourselves. Though it is a strange supposition, it is always appealed to when we speak to others looking at them and thus filling ourselves with the image of someone who is different than us.

To ask for being heard follows the same pattern, but in the opposite direction. We pray others to accept of being filled with us, and only thereafter to pay attention to our words.

If it is rather a rare experience to ask for being heard, it is more habitual the desire of being loved by others and the communication can be viewed as an experience of love.

But as in the love affairs, the communication is always endangered by the whimsical attitude of the partners.

Well Done Thing

A well done thing spreads its wellness beyond itself.

Because the very meaning of a positive value is something as an extension of the qualified work or thing outside of the limits of that thing or work. Meanwhile, a negative qualification is intended to keep the thing in its limits, so that it could not touch us.

If that well thing or work is done by us, we grow together with it.

When other people do not recognize its wellness, we have reason to belief that they are frighten to receive among them someone who may put them into shadow with his greatness.

On the Moral Guiltiness

It is so frighten to be morally judged by others not because they would have right, but because those who are judged tend to belief that they are anything else but a subject of judgment.

The tendency derives from the common social practice of making by speaking a step out of us each time when we meet someone else, since our public appearance cannot be the same as our private self-perception. And the judgment is a form of bringing us forward in the same way.

Moreover, when we make that step forward, we play the same game of dominance which is involved in the judgment of those who want to prevail over us. Even if we have the most peaceful intentions of sharing our belief with other people, we need to put other people’s words aside in order to be heard our own.

Therefore, when we are negatively judged, we feel we lose a game started by ourselves. Furthermore, we easily think that other people judge us for a real guilt.

In fact, the moral guilt or its lack cannot be really put forward by anybody, since it is something which belongs to that area from which we don’t get out in the public space. And a guilt which is not in the public space should have a different meaning. Maybe, it is a simple malfunction and not a guilt, nor a sin.

Meaningless words

When the love is celebrated by poetry and spiritual words, it is probably the sign that the weight of two conjoined bodies cannot be carry on by the lovers.

In spite of the heights of the bodily pleasures, a love affair between two people sets both of them to the ground, since they can find each other only on the same ground. And all the things which lay down reveal their weight.

Differently, when it is a single body, it may avoid the feeling of its weight by moving beyond or beneath itself. Beyond, when the body is pulled to spiritual activities and beyond by seeking for preserving its health.

But it is sure that the body has a weight which always has influence on our life. Our spiritual impulses are tempered by the feeling of its weight, while our care for the body becomes futile when the weight of the body proves to be too great for being moved away from its constant decaying.

If we understand all the words of love as means for fighting with the weight of the body, their meaningless should be interpreted in a positive way, because they express one of the few human experiences of a straight fight against the bodily existence.

For instance, we will discover in those exaggerate words uttered by lovers that the humans wish for denying their existence into the world, since such words mostly imagine a state where nothing is important except the love itself. Reversely, we will discover that our body can be perceived as the whole world.
