Thanks for your post here. It means a lot to me …. making progress in non-thinking.
All those comments are like lights from different perspectives to the whole “thing”. Quite a lot of what is said is logically contradictory and that confuses us. We’ve been taught throughout our life that contradictory statements are nonsense. What if they are not?
Think about that for a few moments.
Either I get completely nuts right now or I begin to understand.
Whatever we knew yesterday is no longer valid today. To approximate this very moment through the filter of yesterday deprives us the joyful freedom and clarity to a fruitful approach.
Thus – although I get what you say – there cannot be any “progress in non-thinking” – thought must stop, if we are to get a clear picture of the ongoing reality.
You say that “quite a lot of what is said is logically contradictory and that confuses us”- but what or who within us gets confused…?
Give it a thought, or better even – give it no thought
Although valuable, our Logic is ultimately just an instrument to control and fight against something we fear and do not understand…- Life?…
We need to understand that whatever we infer is projection and not truth.
Truth therefore, is always paradoxical, inconsequent and highly contradictory – as TRUTH IS A VIVID REALITY NOT A LOGICALLY DERIVED ENTITY. For sure many a scientist of the Old School, would find this perspective of Truth a far-fetched fabulation, yes, pure nonsense. But let us remind us of the last discoveries within quantum physics which confirm my words.
We need to comprehend that NOTHING REAL CAN BE ESTABLISHED! So, our statements are contradictory and at the same time, they are not. It all depends of the viewpoint we hold.
They say that before reaching a higher state of perception, we face and go through a phase similar to madness. The Zen Masters know this very well.
So be nuts, as you are on the verge of understanding.

Isn´t it funny…?
Life shuns all our intellectual attempts to grasp what she is about. Our most valued asset is our thinking and our logic. And time after another, Life baffles and mocks our logic – how can this futile instrument measure Its Mystery and Grandeur?
No, we never get any answers through our thinking. We are unwilling to understand that and struggle even harder to fathom the seemingly unfathomable. A total waste of time, isn´t it?… Our pursuit in this sense is as meaningful as trying to catch air.
Instead of LIVING life, we try to understand it, to eternally “interpret” it. But because life never fits into our preconceived ideas and bigoted interpretations, we mostly have a wrong relation to it, as we can never control it…
We are pathetic really. We refuse to understand the simplest truth: LIFE IS NOT ABOUT THINKING, IT IS ABOUT EMOTION.
Our ever-failing thoughts, our constant dissatisfaction and frustration caused by eternal ruminating, for not having control over anything, has done that we are in a continuous state of riot.
Our mental dis-functionality has deeply affected our emotions, our soul. We are all emotional wrecks. We have become some kind of disjointed freaks as we kill ourselves constantly, going against our emotions. We are afraid to see what we have done to ourselves.
At the end of the day, what we need to learn is trust, to re-connect with Faith. Our existential fears are mostly the outcome of lack of faith. We need to give up this frenzied thinking, this hopeless searching that will bring us only dire regrets.
When we allow ourselves to feel and let go of this damn logic, then we have a chance that life unravels itself through a nice poem, a nice perfume, or through a nice smile from the evening flowers.
So, take a break from thinking!

What are numbers really? Do they actually exist per se, as energy entities, or do they only exist in our imagination only?
Have you ever wondered if numbers have a certain significance? If they somehow influence the course of your life?
What is the secret significance of 1001? It is doubtlessly perfect symmetry above all. This number is an enigmatic sequence, a beginning and an end simultaneously.
What is the end, and what is the beginning? Is there such a thing as a beginning and an end? In our finite scenario there is, on a higher level, things are far more complex and complicated.
I will not indulge in vapid speculations. The fact of the matter is that only when we manage to go beyond our limited “time-and-space” scenario, we get a glimpse of the mysterious beauty of life, where things are intertwined in a spectacular maze of ”absurd and illogical” order. I say “absurd”, as here we speak about a level of being which doesn´t obey at all our logical apprehension. In this realm, mainstream Logic is like having a hammer trying to carve and hone shadows… Unless we have the ability to go beyond our limited logical comprehension, we will never experience the sublime presence of this plane of being.
All our myths, fairy tales and sagas are rooted and emerge from this realm of existence. It is good to be able to use our reason and practical sense in the world of “matter”, but once we enter these delicate levels, we need other instruments in order to grasp and dialogue with them.
The instrument we have at hand to deal with this illuminated “shadow world” is our ability to think metaphorically, to seize life in its mythical aspect.
Hence, our fairy tales are not something for kids only. Our fairy tales bear usually the living presence of this ineffable world, explaining in a far wider sense what Life is about, than our human logic.
A Thousand and One Nights bear witness of what I am trying to emphasise here.
Indeed, we have to rediscover our sagas. It is ripe time to take interest and widen our perception, questioning our myths, reconsidering another “story telling”.
All in all, we need to open our eyes for a wider reality. YES WE NEED NEW STORY-TELLERS. Stories awaken dormant energies within us, they connect us with the magical source within, they reinforce our dreams.
We need new energy. WE NEED TO RECONNECT TO OTHER FREQUENCIES, WE NEED TO REINVENT OURSELVES, ACCORDING TO OTHER VIBRATIONS, OTHER NUMBERS.
We need a more metaphorical approach to life. We need to unleash the new power of our yearning, through a more permissive attitude toward our timeless stories.
We need to embrace the hidden and magic reality of the fairy tales, allowing them to be part of our “mundane” experience.
Without reconsidering the timeless symbols in myths and fairy tales pointing to a higher reality, our life becomes more and more devoid of meaning, and we all end up living an infinitely flat and dull existence.
What do we choose?

I will repost this as I find that questions here are worthwhile considering:
“Why do I keep writing here? God knows…
Does it make any difference? Maybe it does…may be it doesn´t. Who knows really…?
All these told or untold stories of mine – do they create some kind of echo? Do they inspire you? Do they mean something for you?
There are moments, when even uttering or writing a single word is excruciating pain.
THE INEXPRESSIBLE PAIN OF BEING DISCURSIVE, at the same time nurturing the wish to create some kind of intelligible sense…Where is to find a common denominator in these seemingly irreconcilable aspects?
Life doesn´t make sense. It doesn´t obey our logic. But in the midst of all this pervasive circus, there is a kind of secret “coherent” relation between things, between people, yes, between you and me.
Thinking in logical terms, what is the chance of you and me communicating? Almost none…And yet, despite our so different life-stories, there is something within us, some kind of secret, ineffable bond that is beyond logic, beyond – what we may call it – daily comprehension.
Life is a series of interruptions, that´s no question about that. Despite this baffling truth, we struggle to create order, purpose, continuity.
BUT OUR STRIVE FOR ORDER AND CONTINUITY REINFORCES OUR HYPOCRISY, as it based on fear.
It is a hard task for me to put in words what THE SOUL WHISPERS but my reason doesn´t fully understand.
There is no such thing as “after”. After or before what?…Is there a point of reference really? And if there is, WHAT IS IT? Where is it to be found objectively…?
The surmise of a fix point of reference is the beginning of Suffering with all its derivatives: judgement, comparison, conditioning, neuroses.
This “point of reference” is called Ego. The ego perpetuates itself through memory, through “time”, through effort, desire and frustration.
The paradox is that this very moment is neutral. This moment doesn´t have a memory, as every moment is a new breath. The Ego refuses vehemently to know this.
Now, no relation between different aspects can exist unless there is a point of reference. Ego is exactly this: an imaginary sum of different sequences of false relations. I repeat – ego is “false relation” as there is no such thing as a fix point in real life.
If the starting point is “nonexistent”, whatever you do is false. The attributes of the ego are Desire and Illusion. These are based on Fear, nay, they are fear. Fear is the vehicle through which Ego maintains itself, clinging to a non-existent reality which tries to be real.
Now, I am aware that for those of you who never approached things from this angle, what I say here may sound like Chinese.
But those ones who have come so far, are probably ready to have read this.
To summarize: all of you know that everybody is trying hardly to be someone, to dominate the other, to arrive, to find security, to struggle desperately for identity. Everybody is in war for his limits and possessions.
Our logic is built on these millennial delusions. Inside the illusion of struggling for Being, there is no place for Love, Joy, Beauty, Meaning, Friendship or Wisdom. In this way of living there is only place for reckless competition, suffering, war and destruction.
Almost all our creations bear the legacy of this huge existential misunderstanding.
It is probably ripe time for you and me to abandon this outdated paradigm, this” daily comprehension”, to understand the structure of our limited Logic and raison d’être, confronting these timeless illusions in order to take a new step toward that secret ineffable place beyond Fear, where Love dwells.
It is about time…
