Can we embrace a new paradigm?

In a way, we want to find out…On the other way, our ego, somehow doesn´t allow that, and hampers us to perceive things clearly.

If I were to tell you “new things”, would your ego want to hear, or dismiss them as pure phantasy inventions?…

How can you give something unless there is also the desire of the other person to receive that? The desire to receive may be there, but, as the mind is a bad interpreter, it interprets according to its conditioning. With other words, it often doesn´t recognize the gift. The key to a problem may lie just in front of our eyes, but because it comes in a “strange” package, we won´t be able to see it, or accept it. Often we dismiss truth through indifference or sloth.

Our habits are our prison. How can we recognize “new facts” when we are conditioned to live according to outdated patterns? We claim that we are so modern, yet our way of perceiving reality is old: we keep repeating and reiterating our ancestors´ totally false ideas about reality which we still  take as The True Paradigm. Can we recognize that the Paradigm of Darwin, Newton and Descartes is totally outdated, that this specific assumption that life is nothing but a material process, can be the menace for our survival?

To illustrate my point: if only the strongest makes it, it means that life is nothing but a constant struggle for survival. Survival of the fittest is the result of pure madness, madness generated by abysmal fear. It is this fear always trying to dominate and compete. Not knowing WHAT or WHO they are, most people define themselves only through competition. Basically this thesis builds on “I dominate and kill you so I know who I am.” That´s our present recipe for success.

It is quite manifest that, having the urge to dominate, struggle and kill for life, we define ourselves ultimately through crime, through death.

In this frenzied state of despair to survive, how on earth can we have time and peace to think, consider, see and think clearly, embrace beauty, approach life with a deeper understanding and joy? It is clear, we think of ourselves as being victims to be soon executed, and how can a man constantly living with fear of extinction be sensible, generous or altruistic?…A total contradiction, don´t you think?…

WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ACT THE WAY WE DO, BECAUSE OUR COMPREHENSION OF REALITY IS MOULDED ACCORDING TO SOME WRONG IDEAS THAT WERE STATED VERY LONG TIME AGO.

Obviously, we cannot change our way of action, unless we get at the very Ideas which generated our wrong way of thinking. I am aware that it is overwhelming to start considering life and ourselves as a part of a spiritual grand design, but failing to recognize that, we are doomed.

Are we prepared for a new comprehension of Reality?…

Who is going to answer: our Real Self, or the fearful Ego…?

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. Brilliant post Julien… Perception is what we have ingrained into our being.. From such a young age We are like sheep in that we follow the herd of others perceptions and beliefs… Setting the world to rights only comes after we have worked on and set our own selves to rights.. And for some they never think they are wrong! Soooooo…. We are responsible for our own actions.. and Thoughts as we know… I like you keep trying to throw a thought to awaken a few who are perhaps stretching… But in the end.. They are the only ones who can open their eyes….

    Wishing you well,, and lovely to visit as always 🙂 Sue

      Hi Sue,

      Liberation is to question the Misperception about Life we have been all force fed with.

      We cannot set our own selves to rights. Ego cannot save ego. Meaning that we cannot “work” with The false. Only seeing the false as false, is the beginning of change.

      The painful paradox is that Life is insoluble… No matter how skilfull, our attempt to find a “new way” is futile and pathetically fails We can not “straighten things up”

      Man proposes and God disposes…

      Good to hear from you.

      Blessings,

      Julien

        Sue,
        I thought for such a long time that I could “improve”. And despite good-will and “right” intentions, I lamentably failed to make anything better.

        Coming to that bitter point I understood that I have to literally stop trying. I understood that my limited intelligence cannot bring about a change.

        The sense of “let go let God”, has never had such urgent significance like it has now.

        We simply have to stop. Surrender – not as a word, but as a fact.

        Watch this video if you feel like. Alan Watts expresses this perfectly. 🙂

        Hugs

      • I know.. I am no different than yourself Julien, and I catch myself falling and failing often… I too have come to understand that I am ME… and accept also my imperfections.. Surrendering to ones self and allowing yourself to be who you enjoy being I think is the best we can do… I used to think I had failed if I got angry or judged another. Now I pull my thoughts up, but recognise the conditioning and programming is far more deep seated..
        Plus I also understand that the collective ‘Pull’ upon my emotions is having an influence… Thats why at times if you have read my blog.. I have had to withdraw and give myself space.. to stop beating myself up.. And stop being something to others or feeling I need to be an example… I can only be the best of Me the best of how I know to be…
        I know beyond a doubt we are here to try and find ourselves.. but we also came to loose ourselves in the material mayhem also… Its part of our creative beingness.. We created this mess, the Free Will we are perpetually going around in circles and cycles..

        I know you are one amazing mind! of a person… But do not allow yourself to feel Bitter!.. Understanding comes from our realisation that if we were perfect.. We would not be here upon our journey.. And I am most certain that as you continue your flow, You will at some point see the strides of discovery you have made…
        I have saved the video to watch later my friend…. thank you for its share… and Here’s to surrendering to One’s Self.. as we Let ourselves just Be! 😉
