I raise this question as I see countless times how people repress their emotions. Passion and genuine sentiment scares many. It is uncomfortable to feel, and through oppressing our feelings we put down the voice of our conscience. Consequently, we have this unspeakably reckless, shallow and prosaic world.
The soul expresses itself through emotion. Ultimately speaking,
TO FEEL IS THE ULTIMATE MEANING IN LIFE. If we refuse to feel, it means that we don´t really want to live. It sounds far-fetched, but this is our present reality.
I take it again:
IF WE REFUSE TO TOUCH AND TO BE TOUCHED, WE REFUSE TO LIVE.
Have you ever wondered why hysteria is taken for music, kitsch instead of art, why don´t we have great artists anymore? Because of this morbid fact that we consider great emotions uncomfortable and dispensable. We flee, constantly suffocating our inner life, unwilling to hear the voice of our conscience, as conscience talks through feeling. It is indeed tabu to recognize and approve our innermost emotions.
Noble and deep emotion is the attribute of real humanity. Trying to escape
emotion, – implicitly, our conscience – , we become some kind of subhuman nil. A pitiful, disoriented entity fumbling around.
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.
