What do we pay for really…?

Paul:
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?!?

Me:
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.

Paul:
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?

Me:
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!

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.
