Everyone can open the door but the house is so big that mystery is always alive.

I have been having such events in my life, that has provoked this same question from time to time.
If I tell you everything, and you know me from head to toe, would you rather prefer the mystery me- since you have nothing that interests you now?
Mystery always draws an interest, however knowing someone mostly does not, or rather may not create any interest..
You should read my note unexpected, maybe you will understand what i am talking about..

Will you prefer the following of clues towards the mystery or the opening up...maybe the opening up is the final quest of that mystery....and once you had open up ....what would you do ??...Does it means that it stop at opening up ...or becos of a deepening of understanding you gathered up others to do the journey of discovering the clues to mystery ??

bh, it is a mystery to me that i could believe that i know anyone, including myself.

your blog about "unexpected" i would think would touch many people...i mean you are not alone........

anne artist said...

s.a., you have a point. can i ever fully open up to another person. or my own self, for that matter........

and if i give you more data about me, will that truly enable you to know me better?

Jim Morrison commented on this same idea

“That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be what (s)he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending- performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act-”

We always want the mystery. The mystery is the creation of our imagination.

anne artist said...

i wonder if the mystery is who we are without pretending.

so does the art of living become learning to live with the art of pretense. or does it become living with my own unknowable self?

anne artist said...

to continue on........is the mystery of who i am that which is beyond my imagination?

Sally Ang said...

Maybe in knowing me better you may discover that there is always many sides of me ...which will always remain a mystery ...thus i think i believe the mystery of who i am is always beyond my imagination ...:)

anne artist said...

and so as i witness your various sides, then perhaps i change to as it interact with them? so i become a mystery to myself in unexpected ways........

Raji said...

never, not me! The truth is far more fascinating than the mystery!

anne artist said...

i wonder where does the mystery lead us..........
