  1. this is not quite the correct interpretation, but rather exactly the opposite. in the original, this saying sounds clearer

    “…After all, if souls do not die, then they do not need to worry about parting. Saying goodbye to each other means not admitting parting and thinking: today we are just playing separation games, and tomorrow we will see each other again. People have coined the word “goodbye”, because they still believe in their immortality, being aware of both their corruption and ephemerality”

  2. “I have never seen a free beast feel sorry for itself…�

    Frozen, the bird will fall like a stone,�

    But self-pity will not call.. “

    translation of David Lawrence's poem about self-pity (it sounds much stronger in English)

    There is nothing to think about much, but you need to think about it every day, because self-pity is so ingrained in the human race that it is impossible to eradicate it once and for all. But �is necessary. If a person wants to move somewhere in their life at all

  3. Even in my early childhood, the phrase that Farah said in the brigade was ingrained in my head:”if souls don't die, then saying goodbye means denying separation.”

    I later learned that the words were written by Jorge Borges.

    I couldn't find a logical explanation for a long time. Confused. I asked a huge number of people to explain to me how they see and understand it. It was all useless.

    And only recently I was able to get into the essence of what was said: the soul is eternal. there is no separation. “to say goodbye is to deny separation” means that when you say goodbye, you reject the truth (here the truth is the immortality of the soul) and deliberately deny the possibility of a meeting. i.e., if the soul is immortal, then there is no separation and the meeting will definitely happen. when you're dead, your souls will meet again. but if you say goodbye , you reject the existence of this theory.

    Maybe it's not true, maybe it's stupid, maybe it's so obvious – I don't know. This phrase haunted me for many years.
