Un-live and un-learn

The old saying “Live and learn” is probably good.
The opposite though – un-live and un-learn – is equally essential, if not, more essential.

In order to learn something new, we have to realize the necessity of letting go of the known.

Sometimes we come to a point – as I have done lately – where we have to put a conscious stop to old conditionings…

The old personality stems from complexes which we have inherited since times immemorial, which call themselves “I”. It is not a pleasant process to let go of old reflexes and habits, as this is our identity so far…It can be quite an agonizing experience in fact…

Before renewal, the false personality with its complexes must die – which is a harsh thing to undergo, as this process is similar to an end, and it is quite similar to death.

Transformation is for sure the ending of certain age-old life-principles. Our “mundane” personality fears the unknown, it is quite obvious, our false ego doesn´t want to give in, wanting to continue its daft performance.

However, these blunt dissonances, – the legacy of our past – , have to be seen as the ego´s desperate attempt to inhibit change. We have to have the strength to recognize this as such, let it go and show are readiness to go along with the New, even if “new” doesn´t have a clear body… – yet…

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.

    “as I have done lately – where we have to put a conscious stop to old conditionings…” – how do yo put a conscious stop to old conditioning? can you give an example?

    Of course I can give you lots of examples.

    But before that: WHAT IS THE INTENT BEHIND YOUR QUESTION? I am not either cynical or fortuitously playing with words:…

    What is more important for you?…To hear different examples, or coming to terms with what conditioning is about?

    So I would in return ask you: WHY is it neccesary to put a conscious stop to old conditioning?

    Let´s take it from here 😉
