What makes a person sane? Who decides about a mind’s normalcy?
By Anastasia Kogka
Why should we conform to somebody else’s standards? Who says that the majority is right? What is right after all. Kazantzakis in his book The Saviours of God that characterized him as a heretic said that: “You and me God are one”.
We decide what is right or wrong. We decide what to fight for, what to defend and what to condemn. The human mind seems like a maze too difficult to explore and decipher. Scientists have been trying to interpret its twists and turns.
It is bigger than them. It is the one that created the big ideas of the tangible and the non-tangible. The body as a vessel of the almighty follows orders.
It is so easy to label human beings based on what has already been interpreted. Who says that what we have in front of us is not the next phase?
The evolution? Who says that what we cannot understand is not accepted? The inferiority that wants to impose its superior feeling out of insecurity and fear of the unknown tags minds that it cannot grasp.
Sometimes it is just better not to have the ability to conceive things. Better to be protected by a cloud of oblivion and not being vulnerable to the pain of the comments.
Sometimes pausing your mind in front of the magnitude of the full moon is better that worrying. Sometimes the value of the moment that can stop the time is better than all the planning and searching and researching.
I know I have not conformed to the conventions of a letter and called you “dear” towards the end of my text but tonight the full moon just woke my rebellious self up.
