Joseph Campbel

The first step to the knowledge of wonder and mystery of life is the recognition of the monstrous nature of the earthly human realm as well as its glory, the realization that this is just how it is and that it cannot and will not be changed.

Those who think they know–and their name is legion–how the universe could have been created without pain, without sorrow, without time, without death are unfit for illumination.  So if you really want to help this world, what you will have to teach is how to live it.

(…)Learn how to live in the joyful sorrow and sorrowful joy of the knowledge of life as it is.

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.

  1. something to wonder about, why to live as it is. Perhaps to seek and quest. Like a game.
