Zahir....

Zahir in arabic means all consuming,a thing that occupies our every thought,until we can no longer think of anything else.i personally felt this was a trait of weakness,to allow something to overwhelm u in either thought or emotion was to me an equivalent of impotence.I AM GREATER THAN ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ME i wrote on my message board in all audacity.but once again life decided to prove me wrong.a seemingly innocous 'thing'brought me on my knees,made me do things i had derided with all zest,made me stoop to insanity and yet it seemed the most appropriate thing to do then.yes it consumes everything including logic
but there was an exotic joy in that state, a sense of purpose,a feeling of 'agape'in that mesmerisation.
when it finally chose to end itself despite my desperate clinging to it,all it left behind was emptiness,but for a revelation
an unequivocal,consummate passion(insanity)
v/s
an addled pedantic logic

anna.....good thought.......but 1 request......please give a link to the meanings of the words u use in ur posts..!!!
whats AGAPE...!???

who cares said...

agape..i first in coelho's "pilgrimage" Agape is total love that consumes. The love that consumes makes everything else - absolutely everything - lose its importance. It is the love that consumes the person who experience it. Agape is much more than liking. It is a feeling that suffuses, that fills every spaces in us, and turns our aggression to dust

Ah! The Zahir. Paulo Coelho.
Not much of a fan of that book. but there are some good thoughts in it.
Regarding your post -
Everyone has their weakness.. don't they. everyone does. hehe.
