|A work from the Identity Series|
The thing I learned and sensed from this material world as a reflection of human identity is that somehow we blindly consume amount of unnecessary utility or additional bit of satisfaction. These things are some kind of illusion that decreases humanity in human and shapes their view to become as small as just their self-interest.
Being someone in this material world, you are defined by the way you consume and purchase. In this society, a person might have to lose the identity or something they’re used to do, in order to be accepted for his or her existence. Since human are social animals, they always want to have and want to become equal because they are attached to the illusional standard that the society has set for them.
Exist, know the value but meaningless. However, all these materials are not rooted within our mind, thus make us lose the heart and soul of humanity. There are lots of odds in our mind for instance love, greed, anger, passion, loneliness, sadness, positivity and negativity. We might be able to comprehend some parts of them, but not all of them. And once you lose your self identity, you will become the victim of this dominating power. Above all, the nonmaterial thing that we need to comprehend and be grateful for is ‘the world in our mind’.
