And The Winner is...The Woman!

Posted on the 22 November 2014 by Luciano Pacini
I cannot stand awards. Really. I know it can be pleasant receiving a reward, specially if it is some sort of recognition for a good job that you have done, but in my opinion, takes over the thought behind that too often there are some tricks. I find it very hard to believe that judges don’t favour some participants just for their own benefit, instead of those whom really deserve to win. I don’t want to generalize but this concept comes to me just because those things are supposed being based on merit and actually I don’t see enough meritocracy that currently serves in this society.

And The Winner is...The Woman!

The Three Graces follow my blog
The first ones whom make mistakes are teachers. This happens since primary school. Teachers announce ridiculous awards, but they say that they are useful to develop a sense of competition which then the children will need becoming adults. I am sure kids will not remember these stupid contests, but if they will….for what? Being competing just to became the best in economy and in politic? Just to have the biggest house, the biggest car and the biggest amount of money? So only for material things! I can say that during all the life, people are distracted by these illusions, so they keep doing a lot of others mistakes on the next levels.
Do you know that there have been people who have won Oscars or even Nobel Prizes without really being better than others? Another example are the so called talent show, where usually who win is not the most talented actually, but is just the most commercial. On the other side I have to say that of course there have been also those who have won something and they have actually deserved it.By the way this desire of competing crosses all people in every period of their lives and the problem is that sometimes this fact can become something of sick. I heard that in some countries, it happens that in families, husband and wife do this kind of contest: who makes more money with its work, will be the one who will decide where to go on vacation. After that I have asked to myself: will never be a limit to human dementia? I don’t know but you know what Einstein said. This is what happens when an Italian wins an award
Of course we shouldn’t be hypocrites because we need also material things: we have the body. So those are a lot for us but they are not everything; actually is more important aspiring to something deeper like making shine our inner light. We do not need neither glory nor esteem, we do not need either rewards. We just need true feelings. The main course for everybody must be love, then everything else is a side dish. Doesn’t look like yesterday you were a children? So it means that tomorrow you will be already old. Life is like that, it is a mix of joys and sorrows. Life is a countdown so in those seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and I hope for you many years, a good thing is trying to find your "heart". If you really think in this way, I guarantee that you aren’t wrong, are the others around you whom are wrong.Maybe now you think that I have just a negative prospective about competing, but you know I can always surprise you and actually I believe that competition can be good when it is smart. A good example it is the contest that I have just made. I have even already found the winners though, but before I want to tell you something. I am talking about the fact that women are the majority who follow me here. I was wondering why and I have found the answer. Women read me and understand me because a book about women is not just a book about them; it is actually a book about history of art, literature and philosophy. “The world of women” allows reflections, discussions. It is sensuality, beauty and attraction but it isn’t just that. The female figure is a symbol, it is an evanescence dream that a lot of men will never reach till the end. There are so many combinations and so many illustrations of women’s art works and all the artists since ever they have just tried at least to illuminate the mystery that belongs to those “Venus”. A book of philosophy could be almost exclusively a book about women, such is the amount of work that they had inspired from the "ancient world" till "nowadays", because the woman is the most discussed topic since ever and she has always influenced the man inspiring him and his greatest creative manifestations. It can be enough just thinking about poems too. For “the romantic man” the real muse can be only the woman.So now I think you have already understood that the winners of my amazing contest can be only women. Not just one though, because I have found three “ex aequo”, as ancient latins said. I am talking about Katerina, Jelena and Amanda. These girls have been the most active both as quantity and quality of contributions during this beautiful year. I consider them like pioneers, because they are also the first who started to follow me with effort and passion. This is an award fair and honest, can’t be in a different way because I am the one who have organized. I know very well that those girls have been supporting me just because we have a common “philosophy of life” and not for material things, but as I said, I want to express also in this way my feelings and my gratitude so I want to make this surprise to them. Maybe now you are wondering which gift they have just won but it is reserved only to them know it.I want to take advantage of this topic to say also thanks to all of you. For me the best prize to be won is my public, my people, it is even you who are reading now. I don’t need any other reward. All of you are my true award."The Master" explains why there are just great people around him
