Escaping from what we already know

Yes, she knew, yet she vehemently refused to admit she knew…She was afraid to confront and assume her own insight.

I made this observation some time ago.

So, this following quote by James Hollis is about the same thing:

“There is no escape from Knowing though much of contemporary Western culture is a flight from knowing what, inescapably, we already know.”

To put it plainly,
WE KNOW BUT DON´T WANT TO KNOW WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW.

Is this perplexing cowardice or sheer insanity?

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.

    This reminded me of something:

    There is no teacher
    Who can teach anything new
    He can just help us to remember
    The things we always knew

    Le roi est mort, vive le roi!
