We are impelled to have an opinion for everything, even things that we don't know at all, being ourselves aware or not.

We often talk about religion. But, what is religion?
We try to talk about reincarnation, and our minds barely handle the concept of "be". We don't even understand our current state of living.

That is very true. Smiley We won't be able to comprehend it, but we keep wanting to.

Yeah, we have a strange desire for understanding. I remember thinking that when my brother was playing Twilight Princess, and he really wanted to go into Hyrule Castle, only because it was closed inside a barrier. Man, what a disappointing level...

Also, I just realised that I seem to have talked about Zelda in a topic revolving around an aspect closely related to religion. I'm not even sure if aspect is a good word in that, ummmm....situation...? My vocabulary seems to be slightly crippled at the moment...

Our desires drag us away from impartiality

Cheesy
to give it more words it's like pouring water in you capuccino Tongue

It's like...
It you are hungry, and you see some (otherwise average tasting) food, you qualify it based on you circumstances (being hungry), and it's often very different of the one you assign it when you have already eaten a lot of food.
When I'm in the supermarket, and I have already eaten a lot I see all the stuff with a pretty "different eyes" than when I am hungry.

There's something that is always manipulating how we see things. We can consider that someone is attacking us with his words (often a reflection of self insecurity, being afraid of loosing one's stability and integrity), or we can just hear a mere opinion. It's like our view of the world is colored by that internal "status", and effectively this becomes a reflection of our inner self in the outer mundane things.

In a great extent, that's why you can learn a lot about yourself by the way you react to people, and by the way you like or dislike people. That's why you can learn a lot of yourself by means of observing who are your friends, and the reason you can prudently learn about someone by observing his friends.

Although this is only a couple of things that I'm extracting from my sentence.

Maybe in some way reality embodies the so called "mirror of truth", that reflects your inner self.

Mercurius, you should become one of those elderly Asian men who live in the mountains and give advice, and tea, to weary travelers. You'd be very good at that.

Mercurius is very wise, but I don't think he'd fit as an Asian hermit. o.o I think he'd fit better as one of those alchemists(?)/wise people that people seek for his wisdom somewhere in Europe.

He's just reminding me of Confucius is all (even though Confucius wasn't a hermit.  Tongue)

Now that I read my own post, I think it sounds very pretentious. I don't like it.
