The dead cannot resurrect

We call ourselves modern, yet our outlook on life is terribly outdated and obtuse.

The only conviction I hold is that our beliefs and viewpoints must be under
constant questioning, and regularly and sanely contested – when it is required.
It is all about having a minimum of intelligence and common-sense.

We are aptly obliged to adapt to the current living conditions – that´s quite evident for
every lucid person.

I’ve always been a proponent of change. Now the question is:

If the Zeitgeist is diseased, indeed, if man and the whole present society is utterly insane, seemingly and irrevocably disturbed, WHAT DO YOU DO?…

If everybody is mad and considers right to be mad, uncritically merging into prevalent Stupidity and general Disease, bluntly and narrow-mindedly disregarding common sense and conspicuous evidence as to the real state of affairs, does it mean that I have to adapt too to this manifest folly, embracing and taking it for real? 

If everybody is a cowardly moron and considers right to be a moron, do I have to be one in order to fit in and be accepted?…

What do you do when millions of people, states and nations are head over heels heading to perdition, stubbornly refusing to see, dismissing obvious fact…?

I will illustrate my point with an uncommon story:

Once, travelling by train in Romania, I met a shepherd. A down to earth but very astute man. He told me that he once was in the mountains with his sheep and dogs. Two colleagues of his were there too with their flock. Out of the blue a roaring helicopter noise came from the other side of the mountain. It created such a panic among the sheep, so they started running berserk all over that mountain plateau.


Instantly, all the other sheep were hysterically following the poor animal towards the abyss!

The three men and their dogs were desperately trying to prevent the flock from what seemed an unstoppable disaster. They managed in the end to save just a one-third of the sheep. Imagine that:


The analogy is undoubtedly quite clear here, isn´t it…? It is exactly what happens in the human realm:
Millions of people are hysterically heading towards a dire fate, and yet they don´t see it…

I may be a misfit but not a liar: Without intervention from God´s grace or higher powers,

Man is on the verge of total ruin. Psychologically speaking, humanity is dilapidated.
Healing doesn´t happen overnight. It takes generations. Nature doesn´t take sudden leaps.

I SEE IT ALL QUITE LUCIDLY and I am not “pessimistic” when I say this:

Average man is sick beyond salvation. No matter how much drugs you inflate in someone about to die, you come to the point where you comprehend that the best thing is to let him die. We may try, but we cannot resurrect the dead.

Maybe it is so, that humanity secretly wants to perish, otherwise more people would wake up, sincerely and decidedly change the course and deliberately choose another way. Besides inane redundancy and good-sounding but empty phrases, I can´t see any real signs pointing to that.


What can I say as a final word for now…?

May God stand alongside with the vivid ones!

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.

    How can you ever be other than you are?
    A wolf laying amidst a flock of sheep is still a wolf. He cannot be a sheep.

      Does the wolf exist beside the sheep?…

      Does the sheep exist without grazing?

      Grass exists, sheep exist, wolfs exist too…

      Just ponder what happened if grass didn´t exist…?

      Would the wolf exist if Heidi wasn´t there to see…?

      Someone is grazing now, so that tomorrow I can eat and you can drink milk and maybe coffee…

      Does coffee exist without milk?…Imagine if all sheep committed sucidide…

      Would still the wolf exist?…

      Don´t dare think I am playing with words, or that words are playing with you 🙂

        I really enjoy these conversations – you stretch me. And I thought I stretched others! 🙂
        I asked my 4 year old daughter the other day: Does a tree still make a sound when it falls if there is no one there to hear it? No, she said. Why not? I asked. Because it doesn’t have a smile.
        The pure simplicity of children, the unadulterated illogic… they don’t need ‘thought’… they have their truth without question. 🙂

        WONDER – FUL!!!!

        “Does a tree still make a sound when it falls if there is no one there to hear it? No, she said. Why not? I asked. Because it doesn’t have a smile.”

        She is a master. Pure Zen…the best I heard today…

        And we as grownups think we are astute…4-year- old Children should be our teachers…

        THANK YOU!

        Exactly what I thought. Children are immediate, brutally honest, totally in the moment. Words and actions are not filtered. Where do we go wrong from childhood to adulthood?

      • julienmatei says:


        Most likely, the most important question to be approached…with greatest care.


        Why do we filter ourselves? Why do we cut “being” from “doing”…?
