Often we conceal ourselves to what is seen, but the unseen is what seems to matter more. The ‘seen’ distinguishes itself beautifully in a form that is known and familiar, as though it is comforting. It makes us crave for more, drawing us closer, as though our lives depends on it. But truly, what it does is merely feeding the ego within us. The ‘unseen’ is revealed when one is disappointed by what is apparent and ‘seen’, because no one’s desires can ever be truly satisfied. Thus, the balancing of seen and unseen is what truly matters, but often overlooked.
