My gain is your well-being

One thing I know for sure, is that established norms and mainstream “truths” are totally outdated. Trying to find new ways and new approaches to vital life-matters, is a thankless task, as I find myself many times groping in the dark, with nothing or no one to rely on.

It is kind of hard, as I can never be sure whether my observations are “right” and “valid”; in fact, what I experience and confront, is so outrageous compared to conventional notions, so it is above all, a challenge for me to make this “switch” of perception.

Most of the times I stumble, facing enormous difficulty in putting right words to things that don´t obey mainstream criteria, and inevitably I run into obscure misunderstandings and disagreements,
and I cannot “defend” myself, as I cannot pretend  I am right ; I can´t argue about something I am not sure about.

Literature, like abstract philosophy, is outdated. Unlike many writers , I don´t think it´s enough with “interesting” texts, no matter how skillfully chosen words and noble phrases, if they have no direct bearing on real life, they mean nothing.

The spoken and written word has to be powerful, it has to convey passion and vitality, the real word touches instantly, it creates a real, felt impact, it materializes insight into action. Real word is like a piece of bread to the hungry.

In this sense, I wouldn´t dream of writing about things which haven´t derived from something meaningful.

I can see clearly that the things I observe and write about, have enriched me, empowered my actions, and made life quite rich and exciting. In this respect, if something flourishes, it is the best sign that Life is there.

I said before that quite often I am asked – and for that matter I ask myself many times – why I continue writing here, despite no real feed-back. “What´s in it for you?”, asked me a friend.

I would say that, MY GAIN IS YOUR HAPPINESS. If I say something that helps you improve and thrive, than somehow, something of your improved state will reach back to me, cause we all share the same adventure – Life.

And Real Life knows not the boundaries civilization has had us rely on.

I rest assured that Time has come for us to make this switch of perspective.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
