This idea is a very old one. How old only the first men can say…
What is fairly new, for me, personally, is that my blog tends to become something important in my life. (Ok, I was nominated – Thanks again, adampbellotto, I’m honored! for the Kreativ Blogger Award… but it started before that…) My blog was, also, before: a kind of journal, an artist journal… But now, it seems, I dream about it and more often than not, lately, I semi-wake up with a post entirely written in my mind. Like this morning when I came up with this:
I am a blogger. Everything is a question of perception.
I am a visual artist. Even more, everything is a question of subjective PERCEPTION.
I am a man. I perceive the world as a man. Question of perception.
I am a human being. As such, my attitude toward events, the way I PERCEIVE them, is essential.
In a phrase: PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING!
Don’t worry yet. This is not, probably, a new Course in Miracles, waiting to happen… but then, that too, is a question of perception…
To counter megalomania, here it is a photo of myself as the re-incarnation of El ingenioso hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha:
Bertrand Russel (a very smart cookie, that one) said once:
“The megalomaniac differs from the narcissist by the fact that he wishes to be powerful rather than charming, and seeks to be feared rather than loved. To this type belong many lunatics and most of the great men of history.”
Now, to counter my innate narcissism (but isn’t narcissism innate in practically everyone?) I will show you my most recent face:
Finally, my all times preferred photo:
This final one is not to counter but to stimulate both my megalomania and my narcissism. See, everything is a matter of perception…
