Nowadays, my love life feels like a revolving door. As soon as a Possibly Maybe disappears, the next one appears. I thought that this phenomenon might just be happening to me. I was wrong. A few days ago, a friend posted an excerpt from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944):
“Il y aura toujours une autre occasion, un autre ami, un autre amour, une force nouvelle. Pour chaque fin il y a toujours un nouveau départ.” Translation in English: There will always be another opportunity, another friend, another love, a new strength. For each end, there is always a new beginning.”
I’ve been contemplating about de Saint-Exupéry‘s remark. I suppose this phenomenon relates to my blog labels focus and perspective and/or micro vs macro. When zooming in, you lose perspective of the bigger picture. When zooming out, opportunities that were always around, “suddenly” come into focus.
This phenomenon is not restricted to Love. When you are happy and satisfied in your job, why bother reading job ads? However, the moment you lose focus, you “suddenly” notice interesting (job) alternatives.
The above remark (ie, “a new strength”) suggests that this phenomenon also applies to the Power domain of the 7 Belief systems (ie, 2015 original and 2019 update), next to the domains of Love and Knowledge. I suppose this is true for Money, the key belief in the Power domain.
I suppose it also applies to the new 2019 beliefs in the Power domain, being Data-Info and Technology. Politics (2015) is opportunistic by nature. Hence, it must apply. I’m in doubt about Religion (2015) though. Probably, (collective) religions are the revolving door around (individual) Faith.
Now Ladies come, ladies go
Out my revolving door
Some ladies never come back
Most come back for more
I’ve got a house in the hills
With a door that spins
Goes in and out
Out and in
‘Round and ’round again
Ik hou je vast en we draaien vanzelf
Carrousel, carrousel, carrousel
De muziek is alleen nog van jou en van mij
En we draaien vanzelf, carrousel
