You are all looking at the wrong image in the mirror because, the representation of who you are and how you ought to be is based on a counterfeit of your original being.
The death effect on an artist is a near-immediate upswing in prices of his masterpiece. The death effect of your hope is a near-immediate seizure of your dreams by counterfeiters: The vultures in your life. They are all over you. They watch your every effort of bravery gone un-praised.
Travailing in your desert of lost identity. They lurk in the dark and wait for your last hour. They have wings but they won’t lift you up. They know where the closest pool is, but you’ll die of taste. They know where you can find Prickly Pear but you will staff to death. They know the shortest way forward, Yet you’ll remain millions of miles away from home. They wait and when you finally give up the ghost even those afar will come with tributes. Yes they can feel your sting and they have come for the feast.
How does these things do survive in such an arid Desert? They live on your flesh.
They are watching you, someone is waiting for your last hour.
A hero or heroine is a person or character in literature who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good. Historically, the first heros displayed courage or excellence as warriors. The word’s meaning was later extended to include moral excellence. This definition has nothing in common with drama.
The definition of the modern fictional hero Stands in great conflict with the superhuman expectations of heroism. William Makepeace Thackeray gave Vanity Fair the subtitle A Novel without a Hero. The larger-than-life hero is a more common feature of fantasy than more realist works. Just as I wrote in “ Vampires and the lost value of originality” This unscrupulous media vultures have derailed your appreciation of reality and your hopes are all based on an un attainable world of fantasy. A world they have illusively built for themselves. Fashioning your desires unattained to perceive them as superhumans. Then you start to pose questions and doubts about your self. You fall into a state of inferiority complex because you want to look like the girl on Life Magazine or the boy on Askmen with broad shoulders and six pack abs. A standard you might never attain. So you are compelled to look on to those on the big screen as a gods or goddesses.
