The “richer” you are, the more insensitive you become…
We are rich with knowledge, with experiences, with memories of all kinds.
We are the captives of our desires and yearnings, we are struggling to fulfill our ideals, but at the end of the day, we are nothing but the slaves of our conditioning.
We have worked so hard to achieve goals, done “the right things” but more often than not, we remain miserable, frustrated, hollow.
That´s for sure, we equate happiness with “having”. I have money, position, a career and God knows what.
Can you see that all these psychological or material possessions have done nothing but raising walls around you? That these possessions only enhanced your isolation? Can you see this?
Your mind is full to the brim with desires of all kinds, real or imagined cares, antagonistic thoughts; you are hopelessly caught in this never-ending inner dialogue.
Now, in this state of supersaturation, how do you expect Life to reach you?
How can you ever be free and creative, going from prison to prison?
Can you understand that living in this utter closeness, creates more and more frustration?
Are you aware, that your only chance to be alive is to get rid of all psychological striving, that it is imperative to break out of your inner prison, to face your conditioning and let go of it?
Life is ever new, It renews itself second by second, and in order for you to feel that, you have to start this difficult process of letting go, of emptying your mind.
Only through “dying” consciously, you will experience the grace and beauty of every single moment.
This “empty” new space within you, is the secret abode from which Everything is created.

I always get inspired and learn about myself observing and carefully taking in consideration other people´s life.
Life means relation, and where there is no genuine relation between people, there is no life.
Disinterest for “the other” is in fact disinterest for your real life.
Ignoring and being indifferent to “the other”, means that you don´t want to investigate and find out WHO you are, HOW you are, or what you could be.
It means you are not interested to discover your own REAL POTENTIAL.
L’enfer c’est l´autre, (hell is the other) said Sartre. Totally wrong!
Hell is not the other, the real inferno is you!
You, living in isolation, cut off from “the other”. You, afraid to see yourself in someone else, refusing to accept that the “stranger” is your mirror.
