Like it or not, well-crafted words are sexier than the imagery of 'normal' sexy man #sorrynotsorry. Yes, I always adore people who can play with words, be rich with metaphors and symbols, and heck yeah, show an affinity to read comprehensively.
Few days back, I scrolled through Franz Kafka's quotes on Goodreads and read them all thoroughly. I found the quote but I ignored it. I could not grasp the meaning of what Kafka was trying to say. But a text always comes with context. Now I find the quote is highly related to my recent situation. "You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary." probably means as encouraging the self to remain as it is, to patiently cope with the situation and to keep listening - even to the quietest voice inside the heart.
"The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." means whatever problems the world will throw at you, beg you to solve it, you have the highest authority to control the situation. You are the owner of your self and you know what is true for you. You know what is best for you.
Life is, again, funny. I will not stop calling it funny. But He has given us the feet that become our standpoint. It will not leave you unless, okay, you cut them like in Saw movie, or you ignore them and follow others instead, figuratively. Life is confusing and worrisome. What we need is indeed a pair of strong feet and tough heart. And an absolute self-care, of course.
