Solitude

I am pondering on Meister Eckart´s words:

You should live as if only you and God existed. His words are so true, aren´t they? Indeed, you interact, you relate, you meet others, but at the end of the day, at some point they all leave
and – let´s face it – there you are again, on your own, facing yourself.

The hardest lesson for each and every one of us is to learn to deal with this peremptory loneliness.

We can try to escape it – as most people do – but to no avail really; it will chase us whatever we do. Loneliness is like our shadow, we cannot escape it.

We have to learn to linger and confront solitude, cause real peace and contentment are to be found only in solitude with God – only in this contact we can find out who we really are.

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.
