esteganografia da vida

Não. Esta foi a mais dura das palavras que tive de pronunciar naquela tarde, mas um sim seria impensável e só o tempo, muito mais tarde, revelou que afinal de contas aquela tinha sido a palavra mais sábia que algum dia pude proferir.

Importa saber que jamais possuí a capacidade de predizer o futuro em toda a minha vida, mas, sem saber o que naquele dia estava a fazer, tomei uma, se não, a decisão mais acertada e ajuizada de toda a minha existência.

O significado de tal palavra ecoou para sempre até aos confins dos dias.

Passado, como alguns de nós o entendemos, é algo que não existe. É algo que num determinado momento foi o presente e que na efemeridade da nossa existência passou. Não existe um passado, nem nunca existiu, existe sim um momento.

Nem imagino que a vida alguma vez tenha sequer existido. A vida existe neste momento em que escrevo estas simples linhas. O que está para trás também existe, única e exclusivamente na forma em que existe, não como um passado, mas como algo que está simplesmente aqui e que foi em tempos um presente.

O que pretendo dizer é que não existindo passado, também não existe qualquer tipo de futuro.

Futuro é apenas um tempo verbal do que, hipoteticamente achamos, está para vir.

E, é no meio destas duas condicionantes temporais que existimos. O que é o presente, se não o momento actual. E foi num momento como este, que embora pareça que foi passado, antes pelo contrário, foi, é e continua a ser presente, em que proferi aquela palavra que deu início a tudo o que alguma vez importará, em qualquer existência, minha ou tua.

No momento em que escrevo estas linhas o tempo está suspenso, culpa de uma conspiração cósmica que no seu sempre presente conspira para que o que realmente importa seja o momento, nada mais que o momento temporal que levo a colocar um ponto final nesta frase.

Presente significa agora. Significa o instante e é no presente instante que o presente se apresenta. Não há como o esperar, pois ele simplesmente é, nem como lhe fugir pois ele é. É no presente que reside a vida. Não deixes que o teu “passado” interfira no teu “futuro”, e vive o momento, vive o presente que se te apresenta.

Eu não sou nem quero ser um oráculo, nem quero aqui profetizar qualquer tipo de presente futuro ou futuro presente. Quero apenas deixar-te estes escritos para que os leias com toda a atenção e carinho e percebas o que te quero transmitir, que percebas a mensagem que está no seu interior.

Amo-te.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...
