Power of Silence

What distinguishes normal people is that we share a metaphorical dagger; 
the concerns of our self - reflection. 
With this dagger, we cut ourselves and bleed; 
and the job of our chains of self - reflection is to give us the feeling that we are bleeding together, 
that we are sharing something wonderful; our humanity. 
But if we were to examine it, 
 we would discover 
that we are bleeding alone; 
that we are not sharing anything; 
that all we are doing is toying with our manageable, 
unreal, man-made reflection. 
 Sorcerers are no longer in the world of daily affairs, 
because they are no longer prey to their self - reflection.

 ― Carlos Castaneda, Power of Silence

A strange and disturbing image - well spotted! Great reflection, too.

Mie mi-a atras atentia mai degraba ceea ce se oglindeste in vitrina. E ca si cum s-ar fi suprapus ceva din anii '40, peste zilele noastre, ca si cum ar fi bucati din timpuri diferite decupate si lipite, foarte interesant!
Un weekend minunat! :)
