Back to real Presence

People are not alert, they are not mindful to this very moment; they neither listen nor see what is happening NOW. They live in a state of constant aloofness, always on the run to God knows where, always being somewhere else. They are strangers… even in their own life, strangers even to their bodies.

It is so sad. You may see the most good-looking girls, with all the blessed feminine attributes and alas…you look into their eyes, and you realize with awe that they are not “at home”.
They´re totally uncomfortable in their bodies, they do not accept or know how to deal with their femininity; all their inner and outer attributes are more some kind of an ordeal to put up with, than something natural to enjoy.

It is a horrible nuisance to witness, but women have no real personality nowadays – as personality means presence – and what you see is “the same girl” in all girls around. Speaking and behaving the same way, same cloths, same haircuts, same everything…Due to the fact that women have become so flat and neurotic, we all suffer becoming some kind of freaks.

Women behave like men and men like women. Woman deprived of femininity and man deprived of force and manhood.

People being so absent in their lives, you may wonder how they can ever learn or know anything genuine, indeed, what kind of life can they have when they never touch anything for real…? Well, the bad news is they don´t have a real life, other than some kind of imaginary mise en scene.

They do all the “regular things” in life, yet always remaining in some kind of weird absent zone of sorts, always avoiding this present moment.

It is unbelievable. With these ghosts of people how can we ever speak of a real civilization? How can a culture deserve its name, when real Life is extinct, when everything is a blatant expression of absence and nothingness?

My aim and my concern here is this: we have to let our presence shine. This presence of ours needs to be so powerful in the here and now, so that it can be a living example and a guidance for everybody around to embrace.

We simply have to bring ourselves back home into OUR OWN LIVES.

This is the most vitally important thing we can “strive after”.

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.

  1. Do you have any suggestions as to how this may be done?
    I ask because in the past I was often told that it is not OK to point out a problem without offering some kind of solution. With age, this has sunk in and now I tend to agree. Seems more respectful that way..

      I disagree – for how many times do you know the answer to the very same question (or problem) you are asking?

      • In a sense I agree… but the purpose of offering a solution is that (usually or hopefully) each individual offers something a bit different (individual), or new, or even unique…. I think it is this exchange that may stimulate perhaps only one person to say “Yes! That is what I wass searching for.” – and if so then that is great…
        ‘Course I am making the assumption that we’re here to help each other figure out how to discern what is wrong, discuss what we see (as wrong), and somehow work together (as individuals) to correct what is wrong… whether in thinking, observation, or action.
        …just a thought

    The so-called solution comes as we speak. If you feel the gravity and truth of my words, it means that are a step nearer a clarifying viewpoint. Everything of importance happens now as we “speak” – let´s leave the past to itself and ACT NOW, facing this insidious state of things.

        In my opinion, we help each other drop the past. How can past knowledge understand something that has to be understood now…?

        Whatever solution that comes through the filter of the past, is a mere continuation of our conditioning.

        Consequently, to deal with a problem in its totality we have to let go of our inner patterns – and have a direct relation with what is going on NOW.

        Staying with the problem requires the same attention and immediacy as if it was a vivid entity.
        Only in this direct vividness we can find a satisfactory solution. The so-called correction comes through thorough understanding

      • OK… I see what you are saying and agree in a certain way… but maybe I don’t see & understand…
        So, just to help me clarify, how about an example…
        I say “Right NOW Monsanto is spilling poisons into this environment that are NOW migrating and are NOW (& will continue to) adversely affecting my (or your) son’s health and life.”
        You say?

    You see,

    These are absolutely irrefutable facts, and as such they have to be given all our serious attention.
    Now, if we have a reasonably comprehensive intelligence, we understand that nothing – and I really mean Nothing – exists outside a context, that indeed, nothing can be viewed in isolation.

    Everything is intertwined. Life is one, all its aspects are interconnected.

    We have to have a clear perception as to what happens Now, but also we have to consider things in a wider perspective. The answer may be elsewhere, where we don´t dare to look.

    Who is this Monsanto? Isn´t this Monsanto our invention? That is, could Monsanto have existed without our cowardice and ignorance? You see, you and me have built this society – what they do, we do. We are poisoning our own life with our lies, our arrogant unsustainable lifestyle stems from this lies, but we are reluctant to consider that.

    We have to act. That means that we have to look inside and scrutinize ourselves. When a sufficient number of people wake up and see the urgent inward and outward threat, the right action will be taken.

    TO SEE CLEARLY IS TO ACT!
