Existential Friday: Winter Selfienessless

Selfielessness – The state of being without selfie.

Winter Selfielessness 1fr

Selfielessness  in  The Winter

is a Still State of Being –

without a selfie.

Just like an old photograph that has become empty of context and full of mystery,  where has the Self gone ?

Who took this photograph ?

Why was it taken ? 

For whom was it taken ?

All Mass Media have an intended target audience,…………

even if it just for the Self.

Can the Self be without context ?

Can it find

justification in unification

with The Other ?

Try naming The Other

without naming your Self –

Like a Winter without a Summer,

The only Seasons are Snow and Ice,

Forever changing, forever the same.

That is the name of Chaos – Ordering Randomness,

a wind that grows butterfly wings

while ice crystals blue-white soul-sings

the Never-ending Random

Ordered Stillness

of

Unconfirmed Context.

Now go and be Outside the Frame 

Capture Selfinessless & Find the Other.

  3. i think there is the ‘felt’ self and the ‘true’ self.
    this fist can relate to ego & emotions the second is like the Buddha or God.

      Yes that ties to the context of Self. Most rely on ego & emotions for context to define self. The Other is always outside of Self. They identify the Other and use that to create context that is in opposition to ego & emotions. 🙂

      Many thanks for your support & input.
