About awareness

Most of us think that awareness is a mysterious something to be practised, and that we should get together day after day to talk about awareness. Now, you don’t come to awareness that way at all. But if you are aware of outward things -the curve of a road, the shape of a tree, the colour of another’s dress, the outline of the mountains against a blue sky, the delicacy of a flower, the pain on the face of a passer-by, the ignorance, the envy, the jealousy of others, the beauty of the earth- then, seeing all these outward things without condemnation, without choice, you can ride on the tide of inner awareness. Then you will become aware of your own reactions, of your own pettiness, of your own jealousies. From the outward awareness you come to the inward, but if you are not aware of the outer, you cannot possibly come to the inner.

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.

    I was reading this without looking below where the name of the author is standing. I really thought it were Juliens words of his own.
    So, it seems it’s about time for You, Julien, to write a book. What do You think?

    Thank you Richard, it is true, it could have been me uttering these words, probably not in the same manner but out of the same insight.

    I do agree that it is probably ripe time for me to write a book. I trust the book will somehow write itself through my hand. I have the readiness to follow this process.

    These last days, incredible truths have been “delivered” to me – not from an outer source but from inside of me. These “truths” kind of search me and I have to listen to what they´re telling me. Their messages seem at first sight so frighteningly simple and yet so extraordinary, that first I need to integrate them, digest and see whether they heal me.

    I am ” required” to have the courage of being a child again…Heed with no interpretation, listen unbiased to what it´s being whispered. Difficult, I tell you. I have to un-know everything I think I know…

    A totally new and uncommon outlook on life…Something so pervasively grand so it is hardly conceivable…

    Hence, if this process of healing proceeds in this way, than whatever book(s) will derive swiftly out of this unaccountable process.

    Such a synchronicity…I just see you´ve just quoted this:
    “Understanding means throwing away your knowledge”… That´s what I meant when I said I have to un-know everything I think I know…
