Humans are the only species that has to pay to live on Earth. But who are we paying?Honestly, I am calling into question the power structures that have been in existence for centuries because I find them to be absolutely ludicrous!
Why on EARTH (pun intended) should we, everyday humans, PAY to EXIST?!?
Very good point.
Indeed, most people never question this fact,
but do we need to pay in order to exist?…
Utterly speaking, what is the act of paying about…?
What does it entail, Who is paying who…and for what?
And again…- WHY?…
Is our breath expensive…?
What about our Being Alive…?
Water in the desert is surely expensive.
For the drowning man, water has no longer
such a high price…or does it?…
Or maybe we can both drown and pay.
I just find this so troubling, and yes you are right in asking these
questions which I have asked myself.
I will quote Raj Patel in saying:
“People know the cost of everything, but the VALUE of nothing.”
What do you think?
Again, how do we value our breath, or a sip of water when really thirsty?
How much does this moment cost…? Are these words of mine “expensive” or “cheap”?…
What price shall we put on this very dialogue?
How can people ever know the value of anything if they never allow themselves to really
live…and do anything which really counts?…
Value derives from motivation, and motivation is Being Alive.
Let´s celebrate this Alive-ness!

My process has been one of realizing that my deepest yearning is to deepen my experience from moment to moment of what I (and many others) call the NOW. This space of the NOW, for me, has the meaning of entering each new moment in this mysterious life with an untouched direct perception, not tinged by past experiences, be they pleasant or painful. It also means to not waver from this immersion in this NOW and entertain mental images about what we call the “future”.
What many people call “now” is oftentimes another illusion.
NOW has nothing to do with “yearning”, “deepening” or “experience”.
The hardest one is that if we yearn, we will have even more yearning but not the object of yearning…
Now is inconsistent as It exists in non-existing.
It is like trying to seize a dream. How can we then long for something non-existent?
Can experience ever know anything about something which is totally unknown,
outside its “tinged” range of perception?
When we become immediately aware of this subtle insight, only then
What Is Beyond Dream can make Itself known.
