How do you build a language? It's built slowly, over time, using concepts that matter, that turn into words that symbolize those concepts, layer by layer, till you reach a point where there are enough individual terms to create a syntax, a formula within which the terms you have devised can operate to create a coherent, and efficient system of usage. A language.
And I mean that in a literal sense. We, all of us, go through our days attired, even when we think we are not. We may be being intimate with the person we love, but we are still, in fact, Attired. We might be enjoying a shower, alone, and yet, we are Attired.
Think about it. Think deeply. Are you the person, unaltered, that entered the world at birth? When I say unaltered I mean, has anything been done to change you from your original state? If you have cut your hair, chosen to wear makeup, worked out at a gym, or had surgery to alter yourself in some way, you are Attired, even when naked. Do you wear your wedding ring in the shower? You are Attired. Are you tattooed? You are Attired. Have you had some serious body modification like implants, or synthol, to change your shape? Attired, regardless of what you might have on, or not.
Attire as a system of communicating is more vast, and more subtle that we like to think. It is not fashion, though that is an aspect of it. It is not simply covering ourselves from the elements, though that too plays its role. It is not even just a way to hide from each other, though for many of us that is what we try to use it for. What we cannot escape is this simple truth. Everyone who sees us will take in the information given, and file that information away in the proper place, based on their own knowledge and understanding.
Whatever your choices are, make them as close to your own reality as you can. Be truly yourself. Only when we manifest as close to who we are, are we giving those around us our best. And those we love and cherish deserve our best, don't they?
