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.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess . However the way that writter expressed each situatuons that the princess faced quite relevant and keeps the suspense always at the end of the chapter. . . .which makes the reader m...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

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.
