A MOMENT OF REFLECTION
“The child must be educated twenty years before birth” (unknown author) Without generalizing
I’ve wondered for a while, why most media praise and follow every minute of the lives of women who, by their investment wear discreet clothes, with modesty, with proper composure of gender, class with lineage, with soft manners, with height and a rigorous label while all your public performances are monitored? What do they have that does not have the rest?
At the other extreme is also news the model, actress, singer or presenter who, showing off her physical attributes wears a daring garment on her skin posing her own way for the photo. They do not say that she runs dressed in her speedy career, the beautiful year of times that she did not return. They do not count anything of the talents of gifts, as they do not notice her intelligence just what is interesting is that she goes lightly clothes, that she leaves little to the imagination and that…
And beyond in a sepulchral silence, there are common ordinary citizens, who are not news, they have not noticed them, nor will the news media notice them, as well as they will never be featured on the cover of a magazine. If they ever do, it is to tell something unpleasant.
In any case, it is woman the central figure in society and a fundamental piece in the home. In her all hopes are calculated when you area a child. Their tenderness and delicacy pay tribute to their gender. She is the center of all eyes and of all the beautiful things that life has.
“The behavior of the female gender by nature will always be distant to the opposite sex, good manners, demureness, modesty, are qualities of the woman. Woman holds in their beings all the most beautiful in interesting that there is in human nature, is essentially disposed to virtue for its physical and moral conformation and for the peaceful life that it leads to. In their heart lays the most eminent social qualities worthy dwelling, but nature has not granted it this privilege but in exchange for great deprivation and sacrifices and every serious compromise with morality and society, -they say the old writings and published standards of civility de Carreño-, and if they appear in it with greater brilliance and enhance good manners in the same way they stand out in all their acts, as the slightest stain on the glass, even those insignificant defects, which in man could ever go unnoticed. Woman will be certain that the rules imposed on them regarding her gender will be of greater severity than when they apply to men. A man who take the manners of a woman, would seem shy and shrunk, in the same way a woman who takes the air stripped of man, would seem immoderate and profanely”
Respect, dignity, modesty, demureness, values and virtues make her the center of attention. Therefore, it is easy to understand that by natural law: conquer court or pretend, will always be male chore.
Every minute in social networks anywhere in the world, there is a woman who consciously or unconsciously poses to imitate or dress to dazzle, wanting to look like the model of the moment, the renowned actress or so-and-so who is so famous, without thinking or analyzing that publicly she is contributing to magnify the augmenting of Machismo.
It is perhaps her naiveté, the unknown danger, her genuineness or simply folly. As if she did not want to understand, she goes out and has fun in her own way at the time she wants and with whom she wants often with unknown characters. She allows so may freedoms without reconsidering that she is being used as if she were an object or a product adding fuel to the fire so that the flame could be agitated the Apology of Machismo which reverts to devastating results.
The trend on anything that can be copy, imitated, disclosed, as for example the change of look, the latest in cuts and hairstyles, simple fashion or extravagant or the insatiable search for power and money that in the human mind has no borders, it is found in Artificial Intelligence –AI- while spiritually, the abyss that separates us from God becomes greater and deeper.
They say that times have changed, that the stars fall from the sky, that the artificial Intelligence –AI- is the maximum, they say so many things but they do no tell the truth. Is the man who has changed the rules and moral principles for convenience. Why not recognize that the true essence of the human being remains intact? Spiritually nothing has changed, simply the human being allied with time have been the architects in masterfully fling the moral principles, the feeling and the healthy manners that are not feel with the hands to give way to all the material things that provides ephemeral happiness, since at the end of life everything is left over, because where it is, it stays.
About the author – Lilia M. Fiallo was born in Bogotá, Colombia, where, between tasks and free time, she found a place to write about subjects, somehow forgotten by others. With gold letters engraved in her memory, she began her working life, in the heart of the technical part, of the air traffic control of her native country. In the midst of aeronautical phraseology and codes, the world of aviation gave her one of the highest experiences, because of the precision required by this craft, where a single mistake could cost many lives. It is there, where in her concern to communicate her ideas, she begins to write with dedication, themes a little relegated by society, the Church and the State. Discovering a truth that nobody wants to talk about, but much more real and everyday, than it seems. It is thus, as it appears, her first work, “Parir por palir”.
