 „…Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that,
and I intend to end up there...”

“…The day is coming when I fly off,
but who is it now in my ear, who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.

If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me will have to take me back.“

Who Says Words with My Mouth,
Jalal al-Din Rumi

Taking off the „I“- glasses

Here goes the story.

At some point in your childhood to you were handed specific “I”- glasses.
Everyone around were wearing them too. 
And those glasses supposed to help you see some things and communicate with other human beings. They might have been necessary for sometime, but they were not intended to be there all the time. And what happened is that you have never taken them off even when you didn’t need them and finally you forgot you have ones. And even worse you forget that they are not part of you.

As a consequence perception of the reality around became more and more distorted by the “I”- glasses.
And at some point you noticed something is wrong, but couldn’t find what exactly.
And you began to search and to look for the answer.

And at some point it might dawn on you, or someone told you to try to look without the glasses.
If you were told so, you might have experienced wonder that it is at all possible to take off the glasses, so much you were accustomed to it.
Or you might have thought you wouldn’t be able too see anything without it. 

But you might be as well pretty desperate about your life, or whatever was the reason, you might have dared to do unimaginable, to take off the glasses.
And you have been blown away!
So much light hurts unaccustomed eyes. 
But it was also very liberating.
No more glasses. And you can see. With your own eyes.
What you see now is pretty different from what you have seen before.
Not everything. But it seems that scenery changes slowly as you get more used to look without “I”- glasses. Seems that whole change is not possible all at once.

Well, now you not sure about things you see and they meaning. They were not seen before. Glasses were like limiters, like filters that narrowed perceivable light spectrum.

You would like to go and scream on the street to tell the people to take off their “I”- glasses. But it doesn’t work that way and you might be trying to find some more sophisticated ways to tell the truth you discovered.

You might want to discover how it all started with glasses and why? Did some people before done the same and what were they experiences. How to navigate now through life? There seems to be lots of possibilities and much to be discovered in this new way of life.
Without “I”- glasses. Yes, it is possible to go around without them.

It is scary sometimes and you would like to put them again; But no, not really. This is new and exciting and you want to explore it further. And there is more and more people taking off their “I” – glasses. Here might be beginning of the whole new world.
