Тревожный дух
(Anxious Spirit)

Собрание прозы «Тревожный дух» бредущий странник, свидетель обрушений и строительств. Его послания насыщены магической образностью и философским содержанием, им покровительствует остережение Карла Ясперса: «Теряя в кризисе мир, человеку надлежит, исходя из имеющихся у него предпосылок, вновь создать свой мир из первоначала», — рассмотреть «идущую ему навстречу идею».

Сила убеждения «Тревожного духа» определяется качеством излучения главной смысловой точки. Как только искание обретает духовное направление, стремление получить результат отмирает само собой. Здоровье в том, чтобы «незадолго перед закатом приходить к озеру думать о душевной надобности». Даже не здоровье, а смысл. Может быть, главный смысл.

Ian Shine’s ‘Anxious Spirit’, is a collection of prose that unravels the very essence of the human condition, as it bears witness to collapse, destruction, construction, and renewal. The use of magical imagery and sublime philosophy elevates the already rich tapestry of meaning to profound proportions. Simultaneously, ‘Anxious Spirit’ pays homage to Karl Jasper’s sentiment — in that a person in crisis, and upon the destruction of their prior world that they knew so well, ignites an inner drive to create their very own paradigm. This person inevitably experiences a thirst for ideas, a willingness to seek them out, and the fortitude to take on responsibility for their selection.

‘Anxious Spirit’s’ persuasive power radiates from its main argument. As soon as spiritual growth becomes the ultimate quest, worldly wants and desires begin to die off on their own. A true picture of health necessarily must include a desire — “to come to the lake shortly before sunset to think about ones’ spiritual needs”. Not for the sake of health, but for the sake of meaning. Perhaps meaning is all there is. And, perhaps it is meaning that is most vital to our survival.
