Society and conditioning

Society is a sum of all the restrictions, inhibitions, fears and interdictions that have been imposed on us for trackless time. This twisted legacy we can feel deep in our souls. It is our identity.

It is there – inside of us that the real struggle takes place. These inner foes are blind, harshly inertial forces incredibly tough to deal with; to let go of them requires incredible courage, perseverance and ingenuity… Leting go of them means also to drop our so-called identity. A difficult task. After all, this False Identity has been our abode, it is something which has had us in its grip for millenia.

That´s why confronting and letting go of these timeless evil shadows is a hellishly troublesome process. It involves a lot of pain. In this sense, becoming a child again means having the courage to let go of the “known”, confronting the unknown, dropping deliberately prevalent falseness and humbly and faithfully trust Life – one is guided towards something which is not yet “established”. In this process you become also a new type of grown-up. By giving up this timeless falsehood, we become the “perpetrators” of a new individual and collective identity.

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.

    Ya, it’s really hard to give up our complete “identity” which we’ve built up from early age. It’s one thing to recognize the falseness of this house of cards where the cards have names like knowledge, education, profile, wisdom, religion, saints, tradition, culture, wealth, social prestige. It’s another thing to kick all those cards off your life and see what will remain.
    If You don’t expect anything You can’t get disappointed. But you have to dare not expecting anything. That’s not easy at all. Only watching without any thinking.

    Give it a try now and then.
