A meaningful dialogue about disappoinment

Me:

Can we see our own incongruence and hidden hypocrisy?…

She:

Julien – I believe some of us do, yes. Although perhaps not all the time, or maybe when we look back we recognize our hypocrisies. Are any of us not guilty of hypocrisies at one time or another? It’s a matter of getting out of our own way to let ourselves “see” others around us I suppose. Although the post was specifically stating my disappointment with those who deem it necessary to shout to the world their specific beliefs, while ignoring humanity around them, it is also true we are all guilty of one type of hypocrisy or another….

And what do you think?

Me:

I wish I had a simple answer.

I will not indulge in philosophical non-sense, I will just ask:

WHAT IS DISAPPOINTMENT…? Why do we get disappointed…?

Can we open-mindedly delve into these questions with earnest willingness ? Cause behind these questions lies the answer which can give us unexpected perspective on ourselves.

What ideas or beliefs of mine are at stake when I get disappointed by other´s behaviour?… My expectations are harmed, isn´t it so…?
Why do I hold any kind of expectation? Because if I didn´t have myself certain beliefs, I wouldn´t have any expectations, would I?

What is belief at the end of the day? An idea, of course – an idea with which we identify, in order to feel safe. I protect my ego through idea, I derive my sense of safety through that specific belief…

I ask again:
If we had no belief to hold to, would we ever feel disappointed?

What DO WE IGNORE REALLY within and around us when we hold whatever belief…?

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.
