While I was sipping all of my existential and ontological thoughts from Kafka’s fictitious metamorphosis cup, all of a sudden a question popped into my mind:
What is the actual purpose of writing?
To leave a perpetual and an everlasting impression said Kafka’s fictitious metamorphosis cup.
And continued, all these fear of oblivion and adoring utterance comes from the wish of eternity and perpetuity.
Think and ponder the entrance of human’s existence from their mother’s womb!
All mother’s and father’s purposes are leaving an impression and with these children in the contemporary world.
Old Dürrüșehvar was quite tired and sick with this idea: Fear of oblivion.
She was pondering this fear and trying to comprehend the facts and reasons.
The metamorphosis cup has the capability of reading people’s mind and intellects that is why Dürrüșehvar was only pondering these ideas without speaking.
She remembered the Bediuzzaman’s marvellous word from his book Muhakemat.
“Adoring utterance is a disease but not known it is a disease“ in Turkish “Lafızperestlik bir hastalıktır fakat bilinmez ki bir hastalıktır.“
All the authors’ and writers’ desires and passions are leaving permanent and eternal impressions, that is why they adore utterance as Bediuzzaman says.
Then what is the actual purpose of this impressions? Asked Dürrüșehvar to the metamorphosis cup.
It is quite simple Dürrüșehvar, Bediuzzaman always indicates these perpetuity desires and passions.
Why do we become exist?
For this temporary and transient world?
Do you think all these capabilities and skills are given us for this emigrating and transient world?
Even each atom and subatomic particle want and desire eternity and perpetuity.
And Almighty God will give eternity to each entity and being in the hereafter.
Why humans are dissatisfied with everything, and ungrateful always asked Dürrüșehvar with immense curiosity.
Metamorphosis cup answered with patience and maturity.
This cup was quite humble and modest. It was not like the other perfectionist cups.
I already replied this question Dürrüșehvar. Human wants and desires severe perpetuity. That is why they never satisfied from anything.
Every entity has firm eternity desire and passion even though they never say this verbally.
I know you like mathematics, let’s move onto math’s through this you are going to comprehend better:
There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and 1 million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.
So, the important thing is living eternal life within the numbered days, and being grateful this little infinity that God granted us.
Our death is our wedding with eternity.
Mevlana Rumi (RA)
Being an author and writing can be related with the spiritual endowment.
Is not writing all about longevity desire in this transient world?
Which component made us well-endowed regarding spirituality?
Is not writing an enthrallment?
Or is it all about adoring our utterance as Bediuzzaman says;
Anyhow, let’s ignore all these pointless questions and turn into our real purpose:
Live eternal life within the numbered days, and be grateful this little infinity that God granted us.
Remember, there are infinite numbers between 0 and 1.
Metamorphosis cup was in bliss since Dürrüșehvar satisfied from answers that she never comprehend.
Meanwhile, other cups witnesses human’s questions and pity them.
Being human is tough said metamorphosis cup to broken one.
They always desire eternity and never understand that perpetuity is already granted them from Almighty God.
