Life is a glance away

“I love your poem”, she said enthusiastically.
She had seen me writing at the café and she was keen to hear what I wrote. She was nice, graceful, with a classical beauty, her elegance came from inside.

“It is good, you have managed to catch this fleeting moment of the afternoon”, she continued.
“You can almost see the beautiful sunset, rain falling, people going by…this dreamy atmosphere.”

She had a glance as if she heard the poem with her eyes…

“Isn´t it strange”, she went on, “most of this people going by are so incredibly stupid.
They´re  always in a big hurry, as if running  a race, seeing  nothing of this simple but great beauty…”

You have reached the destination before you even started

In fact, YOU REACH IT EVERY INSTANT.

But you are simply not aware, as you have never been allowed to know that.

Everybody asks you what you do

…but no one is interested to know HOW YOU FEEL.

And yet, your emotional perception totally decides
what the entirety of your action and its outcome will be.

Divine hopelessness

You come to a point when whatever you undertake is fruitless. No matter the passion, good will or effort you put into that particular action, you see no real outcome. Indeed, very frustrating. Time after another, you feel defeated by some kind of relentless fate. The more you try, the less you achieve.

What do you do…? To act is hopeless, inaction is no answer either. In plain language,
to do or not to do, doesn´t change a thing…You´re powerless. Stuck. You can´t solve the problem.
You just don´t find the right solution. The utter futility of human endeavour.

In this powerlessness, something happens. You are ready to surrender. To accept whatever it is, the way it is. You realize your limit. Surrender to what is, is unspeakable sorrow, as you no longer can flee your sorrow.
You can try to flee, but whatever you do, whoever you meet – your sorrow will be…

Doing nothing – the greatest liberation

Originally posted on Mirrors of Encounters:

Doing nothing is man´s worst fear.

It is the death of contraries,
for man, the hardest thing to grasp.

Doing nothing, as it is not the contrary of anything,
it has nothing to do with idleness.

It is pure inaction.

“Dwelling” in Inaction entails great courage – the courage of
directly confronting Fear.

Having no contrary to escape in, fear dissipates.

This process is horrendous,
but if you don´t flee in fear to see Fear,
you are the winner of it all.

I can promise you that.

Love is total inaction

IT does not do anything.

Out of this ineffable inaction, which is weightless Joy and Rest,
every action taken is a blessing.

We can liberate each other

 “I don’t always know how to articulate my thoughts”, she openly admitted.

The point is that I don´t always know how to articulate my thoughts either…
The best way to do that, I think, is in a dialogue with someone who is also interested to explore.

I know that I know, but I don´t know WHAT I know…I don´t know how to verbalize, again, articulate what I know.

Can´t we find out together what we know, but have no words for?…
