Sometimes what people call depression is some cross between ‘an elephant never forgets’ or pike syndrome, and laziness mangled with nonchalance and irreverence. That is a gunpowder mix that could cause an implosion into nothingness—a voiding.
Get up! Get up,
the right answer to the wrong question.
Doing non things
Living in fantasies
Self: a self-referential meaning. That is inherent is the sense of the word itself. It is self-referential in the sense of a recursive acronym. For example, WINE. Wine represents, ‘WINE Is Not an Emulator’. The first letter of the first word represented by the acronym, is the acronym itself. In terms of meaning, this translates to defining self with self present—and key—in the definition.
Other words of a similar nature may be, ‘truth’, and ‘love’. Concept-constructs of that which can be imagined purely by itself, with no references or relations to other things or standards. In other words, of that that exist without necessary relation to others, being independent of context-dependent interpretation. Simply ‘selfly’—or ‘self-ful’. Words of this nature can have no exact opposites, like the number ‘0’ in a way.
Both self-referential in meaning and existence, self is a noun that admits no adjectival qualification. For instance, there can be no such thing as ‘good self’ or ‘bad self’. Self is self-contained: it is exactly what it is.
It was in the life of Mary
To give birth a virgin
Mother of Jesus
How was that not impossible
Questions to answers we may never fully know
That her hymen was not pierced
Not first by the phallus of a man
When she conceived her child
Petting to keep in virginity
Not the problem of a man
As it slipped through the crack
She lost her virginity
Delivered of a baby
I need you because I want you;
the converse could be stressful.
I want you because I want to love you;
I want to love you because—just because.
Je ne sais quoi.
God does not appear to need man;
yet he lives and acts as though he does—just because.
To call oneself to a calling,
isn’t that how many folks have found their calling?
For to discover one’s calling is to accept one—to choose it.
If a person lets go of, or loses, their raison d’être, that person has chosen to leave a life and associated living, for another—perhaps untold—one. That amounts to a change in living that is also of calling.
A person’s raison d’être, whether inherited or learned, determined or undiscovered, or chosen even, forms a dynamo that propels them in their calling. Whether or not ones quest for their life calling or purpose is driven by religion or faith, it is certain that they’re living their calling now, even before they’ve found that calling to move to. You can change your calling.
For many, their calling has simply been to deal with life as it comes; to make the most of living, per time and per chance. They simply live their calling.
To call oneself is to find one’s calling;
for to purpose oneself, is to choose ones call.
Some things want to set we right;
Others, to leave we bereft.
Which direction is well?
