A little boy trying to make the entire world fall in love. Anyone shot by the Arrow will feel a very strong desire building up in them, uncontrollable. The Cupid – The Desire – The Amor – represented as a young boy with wings, a bow, and heart-head arrows, someone who made the plots work in the mythology.
Seen as the son of the Love Goddess – Venus – and the War God – Mars – the young man continues to spread love and make people fall in love, and express their deepest desires and bond into eternal love. Until he’s wounded by his own arrow, falling in love for Psyche.
Well, Cupid might not be there today but Cupidity still is. We are all shot by the arrow on the day we enter educational institutes and the lethal dosage of cupidity takes over us over the course of our education. Secretly filling up the desires in us.
Working our way up to the final years of education we fall prey to cupidity. A very strong desire for money fills up our entire life. Cupidity – Greed for money or possessions. We start earning, say in our early 20s, and we run after money until forced to rest, forever.
Cupid, might not be there today, but we have been shot by the arrows. We have made money are deepest darkest desire and run after it in the “cupidity”. But is it really worth it?
Didn’t the love die out eventually? Even after Cupid hit the shot? It might have been more successful if Cupid never interfered and love took its course. They met like they should, they build the courage to say it out and they had the strength to stand up against the world. Why Cupid? Why do we need to rush anything?
Yes, life is short, but it’s the longest thing you’ll ever do.
Something to think on, right? Well, enough about Cupid, I think it’s time for me to worship Hypnos.
