Hidden veils

That’s obnoxious, veils are supposed to hide us! We hide beneath those numerous veils that we adorn at will, carefully knitted over time, civilization, culture acclimatization (in context) and shit loads of other stuff.

I am perplexed at the mutation of the veils. We have taken an indulgent dive; short circuited & mastered the ‘mutating art of hiding a veil’.

A few steps into yester times – it was possible to describe the specific veils a person owned (in a sense), and could associate them to different states of disposition (I refuse to use the word – Mood), and people adorned them to achieve a specific purpose – to show various emotions, degrees of control, sociability levels, and sometimes an aura.

Come now, the evolution of the metro sexual man, the liberated women, empowered individual, the yuppie, the Generation “cool” – so many facets crunched into one single individual! – The result – It’s become a sham to have a veil – (somehow, having a veil always sounded negative!, In the truest sense, I don’t think it is). So, the genesis of the culture of “hiding the veils”.
  • To what lengths, we go to say what we are not?
  • How quickly have our identities changed from “what we are” to “what we are not”. State of disposition is relative, to the immediate locale – we can be the angel personified and the devil raging at the same instance to 2 different people?
  • How often do we say – Look, I am what I am, you like it – great!, and you don’t like it – great!?

We run not to have veils, to hide them, and in the process, run, run, run! Somewhere, at sometime, when we look back, we almost do have neither the self nor the veil, and the veils are hidden into such proclivity that, we hit a void – a void so deep, that we suddenly are back to the state – “Look, I am what I am, you like it – great!, and you don’t like it – great!?”

Sucked in a circle so big, that the instance rules over the moment, the moment over the context, the context over the meaning, the meaning over the definition, the definition over the subject, the subject over life, and we subject everything in life, that we see everything as an instance!

If everything is an instance, then, why should be hide the veils?

I agree that the balance will strike at some point – my question is, what is the price we pay to get to the point of balance?

Quest!

Thats the word that rings in my head at this time! -

Quest the way I understood - Search for something, but this quest itched my head to lookup the dictionary, and Ahem! - What a description - "A search for an alternative that meets cognitive criteria".

Now that's something that I like - Did another thing - searched my blog for 'quest' and was suprised @ the results. Each of the blogs are titled differently, but today, I would give them these titles:

The Skeptic - I would call this blog, The Quest for the Quest

There is immense beauty in imperfection! - The Quest for Imperfection

Flipped Mirrors - The Quest for a Reason to Faith!

The Indulgent Mind - So More and No More! - The Ultimate Quest - Flirting on the edge of the Indulgent Mind is tolerance in a platonic relationship; perseverance in romance, patience in courting, ambition in a career, faith in (a relationship with) God. Point in fact - all the words – tolerance, perseverance, patience, ambition, faith are the 5 pillars of something I would call the “Big Quest”.

...besides, I am in a mood to receive lots of compliments - I am bad a fishing in the waters for some, so please be benevolent, and give me compliments :P

How Much Have You Changed in 10 Years?

You've Changed 52% in 10 Years

You've done a good job changing with the times, but deep down, you're still the same person.

You're clothes, job, and friends may have changed some - but it hasn't changed you.

How Evil Am I?

You Are 30% Evil

A bit of evil lurks in your heart, but you hide it well.

In some ways, you are the most dangerous kind of evil.

There is immense beauty in imperfection!

Why is that we clamor to have a world that is defined by something as abstract as “perfect”? – It’s the missing details that give the pleasure of enjoying something!

How many times have we resented when every thing is stripped open leaving nothing to the imagination to understand (I mean literally!), and many a times taken it as an insult to our intelligence?

How many times have we hated when someone lay everything threads bare, and ask a poignant question – Don’t you understand?

How many times have we deeply disliked the face with the perfect contour, except for the gasp of the initial reaction of amazement, that we cannot love just the perfect contour?

How many times have we tried to be the perfect mate and hated ourselves for just not being able to be our self?

How many times have we loathed in the boredom that gets generated of perfect pleasure, and seek for the basic indulgence in the ordinary?

How many times do we hate the perfect score, a full cent percent, that we can no longer can look forward for something more, but fiercely guard a vicarious position?

How many times have we hated the perfected sounds that emerge out of a “perfect” audio system, to a point that we are happy at the DJ creating noises scratching the
CD?

How many times have we raised the question, on why this perfection, and wished that an imperfect world was worth all of it?

Imperfection I say is the perfect remedy to this quest!

It’s in the imperfect, that we can clearly see, learn to truly love, give, grow, adapt, cherish, create memories, enjoy the space, appreciate, abate, emote and just live, and not “exist in a seamless perfection that only is perfect in a abstract perfect world”
