Mirror of Desires

---- Unrelated Stuff ----
I ate to much peanuts these few days. Nose bleed non stop whole day
------------------------



Today morning, I woke having the feeling that I had it all, Riches, Power, Recognition, Beauty, and Charm. When my senses came about, all those my desires were replaced by a feeling of solitude.
I thought to myself: "Great! Another one of those happy joyous dream. Just what I needed. A cold splash on the head just when I thought I had it all!"

I woke up recalling an mystical artifact mentioned in the storyline of Magic: The Gathering. The artifact is known as Mirror of Desires - Mirari. Legend has it that the Mirari offers what you want, not what you need. It is a legendary artifact of immense power with the ability to make its wielder's innermost wishes come true. The Mirari is relatively small, resembling a metallic ball mounted on a wirey helix.

In the story, people would kill just to get a glimpse of the Mirari. People would go as far as destroying planes, snuff out some species in the process just get a feel of the Artifact's texture. To them, its all worth it considering that the Mirari is able to grant any desire to the wielder. As time pass by, the Mirari notoriously drives its wielder insane, often causing death and massive destruction, wherein it awaits a new master.

I was just thinking, we work all our ass off, often times resort to dirty methods just to put one foot nearer to our desires. Our world revolves around us and we are the center of our universe. As long as our desires are met, nothing matters anymore.
Just like ms pinky over there. She wouldn't mind going all the way to Egypt, burn a few midnight oil, swallow a hundred cups of instant noodle (knowing that those are health damaging) in order to graduate from a medic Uni.

We all have desires, things that we want.
Some of us desire for Knowledge. Some for Wisdom.
Some of us desire for Beauty. Some for Charm.
Some of us desire for Love. Some for Attention.
Some of us desire for Happiness. Some for Peace.

Tell me: If someone hands over the Mirari to you under the condition that you can never refund the artifact (just like in the movie "Click"), would you accept it knowing that it may bring death and destruction to those around you?

[Even if u wish for harmony among your circle of friends, it might still bring destruction to those who you don't even know exist. Would you still accept it?]

everyone has something to desire about but whether it is beneficial to u is anor point.

humans being humans will tend to desire for the 'want' instead of the 'need'

Everybody have their own desire which is normal but it's just the matter of it's we are aking things right, that yourself wont feel guilty about it or it makes you feel good when doing so.

Even if i wish for harmony among my circle of friends, it might still bring destruction to those who i don't even know exist; honestly i Wouldn't accept it...Coz because of a tree, u burned the forest is not worth.

WoW! Very keen observation! I'm getting bored over here, and I need something to stimulating to think about. So, i guess thats why my post are getting deep lately. Oh oh, I kinda got inspired by someone.

So, i guess you won't accept the mirari. Not even in a million years.
