The Here with no There

Our unwillingness to acknowledge what is really happening within us, costs us dearly.

In vain we try to compensate outwardly what is to be seen and accepted inwardly.

In order to understand the inner mechanisms, we have to stop fleeing – we have to put a stop to striving, as striving is not assuming “what is”…
“What is”, is …and unless it is seen as such, it never changes, in spite of all changes we hardly try to achieve…

To put it differently, “what is” doesn´t belong to the realm of duality.
It is Here which knows no “There”.
“There” is a figment of our imagination only. It is very tricky, cause for sure, on one hand, duality exists, yet in terms of “what is”, duality ceases to exist. Only when duality stops, What is, can be seen as such.


At some point, we need to look suffering in the face, and realize that it exists due to our unassuming suffering. Very paradoxical…

But whoever is ready, will SEE AND UNDERSTAND THESE

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.

    Thank you for your nomination. It sounds great to hear that my words “hit home” for you. It is great to share and be heard – it really motivates me to go on.

    As to the reward, I don´t really know what to do with it – in what way it would benefit my writing.

    I´ll give it a thought though.

    For the record, I am moved by your words. They hit home for me too:

    “My aim is to speak up about ‘taboo’ global issues, through blogging, poetry and short stories. Once I find my feet in this arena- I hope to take it to the classroom (I am a teacher) and eventually have the students start to do the same thing. Getting our children to speak up about the things they believe in, to fight for the rights of others in need and to encourage others to do the same, will hopefully lead to a generation of people who tackle problems and solutions head on”

    Indeed, if we are to survive, there is an urgent need to speak about all these ageless societal taboos that
    belittle and demean us.

    It´s about time we let go of them.

      I really want to teach children that they need only to look at a problem long enough, then to turn in the direction of the solution, and stay there. Also, to look within themselves for the answers, as we are a part of infinite intelligence.

      No need to do anything with the award Julien. It is really just a way to get in touch with other bloggers and let them know that they inspire us. If you ever feel like passing it on to someone- do 🙂
