The Unbearable Heaviness of Being

My quest for the eternal lightness

…I don’t want to devalue the meaning of hope. I don’t want it to be a ‘simple’ answer that inhibit us from taking up our responsibility for pressing issues. That it becomes a ‘diffendo!’ or ‘anervate!’ magical spell that I call out when shit happens, and everything will be fine.

At least I could understand that the hopelessness intensifies the cry for ‘salvation’ (whatever it means). But I am not ready to turn that into an emotional trap – that I am just waiting to be saved from this hopelessness.

Grant me a glimpse, grant me a single glimpse into something perfect, something completely developed, something happy, powerful, triumphant, from which there is still something to fear!
