It has taken me 49 years to come to this point…I have suspected for the last 15 years that
things were the way they are, but there was no one to acknowledge this highly uncommon “knowing”…
Long ago, a friend of mine got his recognition under a tree.
Mine was given tonight in a locker room at the gym…isn´t this immensely amusing…?
As of today I know that I know…:)
What is this “knowledge”…? Here it is:
It doesn´t matter if you are a billionaire, or a beggar, a thief or a “saint”, it is the same if you can speak 100 languages or not utter a single word, it´s the same if you can travel back and forth in the whole Universe, or stay on the same spot…You can succeed or fail…The Universe doesn´t care, It doesn´t love more the scientist than the wretched…
You can master or know whatever is to know and it doesn´t mean a thing, or you can be absolutely “no one” and you can find the meaning of it all…A genius, or a total ignorant, a fool or president of the country… – you can be everything or nothing – it is the same…
Nothing counts – everything counts…Everything exists and Nothing exists. YOU EXIST!…
You are loved beyond comprehension. You come from Infinite Joy…Your breath is the most precious evidence that You exist…JUST KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED! – relying on this love, you can choose whatever makes you happy. Remember, choose out of this Love!
YOU ARE ALREADY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR…But mostly you don´t know this…
The Universe doesn´t need you “to become” or “be someone”…YOU ARE SOMEONE, this is you real legacy: YOU ARE…
You cannot “not exist”…There is no such thing as non-existence…other than your limited comprehension.
Everything is the same… You can conquer the whole world, or do nothing – it means nothing or it means
everything insofar as you realize this Love…NOW!!…This words may be a terrible blow for people´s ego…
But let it be a blow…
So my friends, I greet you with a big smile.

In response to my post that “Simplicity is complex” Richard comments:
Only the point of view concerning simplicity makes it complex. Simplicity itself is simple.
Do you have any idea how many hours – or days even – it takes to write a simple melody?
There is nothing wrong with complexity as long as it is quintessential.
No, I’ve no idea how long it takes to write a simple melody. But this is only psychological time . It should come out of you without the use of your brain. Just from your heart and soul. Is this realistic? What do you think?
Well, I got my problems with classical music within this concern. It is often so highly complex that it’s harmony is suffering. I miss the coziness (the german word Gemütlichkeit would fit much better) within that type of music. Maybe it’s because it’s so highly sophisticated.
My thought goes to Beato Angelico – they say he was meditating and praying before starting to paint.
When it comes to composing – for that matter this applies to all “serious” creative pursuit – it is of course also a great toil alongside with inspiration…to hone, to take away, to find quintessential clarity. Think of Michelangelo carving like a fury in the icy marble…
Undoubtedly, you have the clear vision, but labour is a fact. It is the same whenever I write a text, like now… – I feel the ongoing inspiration which motivates my writing, but sometimes
it´s a hell of a job to put the right “contingent” words…so you can create the easiness and flow you´re talking about.
You are right though about the “Gemütlichkeit” in classical music – although I write at times
complex stuff -, I aspire towards a soothing simplicity, I endeavour to create that kind of pure enchanting harmony you are talking about.

Simplicity is lost. Stunningly and tragically true.
To see things simply and yet in a way free of convention. When that rare individual comes forward, the labels will attach – “extremist,” “lunatic.” But the crazy ones have always been our only hope.
You do sound a little crazy yourself, Julien. Carry on, please.
Who´s there to know if human reason may be sheer madness and divine madness, pure reason…I prefer for sure to be a happy lunatic, than a reasonably unhappy intellectual.
Simplicity arises in the moment of complete abondonment…it is inexpressibly easy, yet ultimately nightmarish for the ego.

It is always difficult to keep simple and clear. The world worships success, the bigger the better; the greater the audience the greater the speaker; the colossal super buildings, cars, aeroplanes and people. Simplicity is lost. The successful people are not the ones who are building a new world. To be a real revolutionary requires a complete change of heart and mind, and how few want to free themselves. One cuts the surface roots; but to cut the deep feeding roots of mediocrity, success, needs something more than words, methods, compulsions. There seem to be few, but they are the real builders; the rest labor in vain.
