Welcome to the
The story begins with Maquia, who is from a magical race where all the members end crumbling in their mid-teens. She has no parents and, although her days are peaceful, she feels alone. Their peace is shattered when an army invades, seeking the underground to her people’s immortality. Leilia, the most beautiful girl in her clan, is taken away, and the male child Maquia has secret feelings for disappears. Maquia is able to escape, only she loses her friends and her home. Wandering alone in the forest, she finds Ariel, a baby male child who has lost his parents. The story follows the changing relationship between the two as Ariel grows upward and Maquia does not.
Substantially, the story is about life and how it consists of an countless cycle of dearest and loss – grown out of loneliness perhaps. As an immortal being, Maquia feels and so lonely and because of that loneliness fate brings her out into the world of humans to experience life as a homo being, a friend, a mother. She gets to know what it means to worry, to work, to love, to struggle. And she realises how painful and excruciating all of it tin can be. Only she also experiences the utter beauty that lies in exactly that: the hurting and the love and the loss and all the precious memories she got to get together which will e’er stay with her. The loom`s fabric represents all of it: time and infinite and peoples fate being caught up in it, rendering a unique story for anybody – and each and everyone is waving their own textile, taking part in waving other people’s fabrics as well.
Buddhist believes state, roughly, that all human being beings have a soul or a higher self which derives from God – an eternal being, the primal ground and source, who is everything and nothing at the same time. Those higher selves and eventually we, ane could say, are children of God. The Iolph, with their blond hair (reminiscent of the “jester” or “fool”), large eyes and kid-like features symbolically might represent those young and inexperienced higher selves. They are said to come from another globe or dimension where they alive in peace and wholeness. To feel life and grow they come up downward to this world, alive a life every bit human beings and eventually render to their peaceful abode – until they make up one’s mind to come up dorsum down once more. Simply because those college selves leave their only and true parent – God – to become independent but are children still, they are out in the globe on their own, like orphans (which is highly reminiscent of the biblical Parable of the Prodigal or Lost Son) leaving themselves with only one another to look subsequently – saving each other but too “screwing upwardly” forth the manner. This higher selves are also said to non approximate, to not differentiate betwixt practiced and evil, which is part of the reason why so many people feel so much pain in their lives: it is not seen as being neither bad nor skilful. It is only regarded as being what it is. And to go to know information technology one has to experience and experience it.
And so all is to only live and honey, remember and grow – until we all become back home to being part of God over again. The growth we gain out of all of it is woven into all of our destinies. It is our hope nosotros go, which may be why the protagonist of this story is called “Mauiqa”. Her name may refer, among other things, to the give-and-take “magic” or “mágos“
“the wise ane”. Not just will she become wise in the end by post-obit her heart and thus beingness ready to leave the world of humans, but she has had her name all forth: she has e’er been destined to become wise and return home.
