The endless mysteries of human relationships
The relationship between us is something so colorful, varied and complex, but at the same time it is inevitable. Presumably, our inner multi-levelness creates the situation when “nothing is unambiguous” and it is often “everything is relative”.
However, this does not prevent us from guiding, trying to understand our own nature and behavior as well as the behavior of the others. When a person thinks deeply about something, he can get answers.
Human relationships are based on many levels – family, relatives, friends, professional relations, love, sexual things … I have affinity to the last one, but that does not prevent me from trying to think of the rest of them as well.
An especially important aspect of the subject is masks.
Jung’s mask studies (from lat. persona) perfectly illustrate our ability to adapt, assume different roles and social games. Mask is a necessity. Naturally, it does not show our true self – it can fit it in itself, but it is not necessarily.
I admit that I adore the masks – in their transference meaning, because they initially carry encoded symbolism and associations. Even literally it cannot escape the symbolic references and links – if we put on a mask (in a ball, in a sexual game), it all becomes completely different and can never be simple and unambiguous.
The theme of masks somehow directs me to the subject of truth and to the inexplicable longing of man to repeat “how much he values the truth, how he seeks and expects it, and how – this is absolutely necessary! – hates when someone is lying to him. ” And as he “hates when someone is lying to him”, so he lies that he hates when someone is lying to him and often lies himself. You bet!
(I personally keep silent on such requests, as you have to be careful about what is being said, and I know that everything is possible in our life.)
Human relationships are like many knots and they are entangled, intertwined and entangled in all sorts of configurations.
I start this one and hope to get interesting knits 🙂
