A thought about success and fulfillement

If no “I” is there any longer, can we still speak of “gaining” or “failing”…? Are real dreams a matter of “fighting for”…? Indeed, although everything requires a serious amount of work and due skill, I tell you that when you stop “fighting” and “aspiring”, dreams will “simply fall from the sky and plop into your lap.” I talk from “experience”, I saw it happen all too many times…observing people who really reached a fair amount of outer fulfillment. For sure, we have to count also on this ineffable reality which can be called Luck. Unless Fortune turns its benevolent smile to us, everything we do will come to naught…

I do not in the least intend to play with words.

Many times fighting and striving prevent that very thing we all want so badly: success. Whoever says that success was the consequence of mere hard work and effort is a liar. The amount of fighting and effort you put into whatever objective, more often than not, counteracts a positive outcome.

Indeed, life does knock you hard many times. Fall down seven times, stand up eight, they say…But if you manage to “give up” counting and raise as if it was FOR THE FIRST TIME, nothing can impede you any longer to experience flow. Flow is real success. No failing, no gaining, just PURE BEING…

And flow, has nothing to do with “ambition”. Flow is ego-less action, natural Law…

Living is the secret…”purpose”, the outcome of it.

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.
