    Devotion

    Are you devoted towards something? If so, what exactly are you devoted towards?

    As for myself: I am usually devoted towards always improving my art in which I do. It doesn't really matter what type of art it is, I am always determined to improve in my art. I am good with hands as they say but now when I think about it... I was never really much of a practical person... but as they say I have magic hands. My actions and how they are performed is very important... and I take mistakes into consideration as well also as a result. It is as if I do want to make mistakes... but I do not notice my own mistakes sometimes... so much for such a devotion eh. I notice as a result I am improving myself and as a result perhaps other people can benefit from it as well. I can perhaps show you what went wrong... or perhaps others can show me where I went wrong so we go both wrong all together.

    Sometimes I feel that something is just missing as a result... but sometimes I can't tell what it is. What have happened to yourself others ask myself... well: why don't you tell me. It is as if I want something to pop up from myself and only in my mistakes can I see where I can change the course of action and as a result of that fine tune my devotion towards my "art again". But I admit that it is sometimes time consuming and isn't that much of a profitable... then again; profit where really never my first motive in any case. Motive; they maybe don't say; but I say; was perhaps the most important... or at least that is how I interpreted it.

    I am noticing that I am running out of time...

    First, I just wanna say - - - > I love the Unanswered Post Link. I just discovered it was there - not sure how long it had been there, but just saw it.

    What am I devoted to?

    Me.

    'Recreate the world in your own image and make it better for your having been here.' -Ray Bradbury. This post really reminded me of that quote for some reasons!

    INFJ - The Protectors

    Only true devotion I have is to my ideology of having a soulmate.

    I have ended perfectly fine and happy relationships.
    I have prevented certain relationships from occurring.
    I have traded the embrace of another for solitude and a blurry vision of what may be.
    I have acted out of character, just so that she is nearby, we will spot each other sooner.
    I have worked on myself on every imaginable level, even though I know I never "needed" to. I wanted to be the best possible person I could ever be for her.

    The list goes on.

    The 'reality' is, it's like the Knights of the Round Table searching for the Holy Grail. Some of the greatest knights that ever 'lived' will end up losing their lives trying to find it, but it will be found. I'm just one of those souls that is either brave, or foolish enough, to put my life on the line to find it.

    My truest devotion lies in:

    • My religion
    • My most personal values
    • The people I choose to care about the most

    By the way, I hardly ever come across views like this before.

    I must say one of the very few posts on an online forum that can impress me I salute you for your courage and idealism. You might be the one person I know who has surpassed even me in terms of being unusually idealistic.

    I don't know anymore. I lost that sense of devotion years ago and I only recently realized that it was gone and missing.

    I'm on my way to finding again.

    Is it helping people? Love? Music? Creating? Writing?

    I don't know. But I'm going to figure it out.
