Unbelievably sad

I heard of a guy living in a foreign country.

He was feeling so incredibly lonely – no one would pay him any attention,
nobody cared about if he existed or not.

He was really desperate.

As he couldn´t call himself, at some point he was sending text messages to himself,
just to remind himself that he was still alive. 

Oh, our beautiful world…

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.

    Lonliness and emotional issues of us is quite an old concept. Being a folklorist, I have seen evidence of loneliness in proverbs & folklore from several cultures. One Yiddish proverb on loneliness I want to quote here is “When an orphan suffers, no one notices; when he rejoices, the whole world sees it.” from my site http://cuteproverbs.com/proverbs-by-topic/loneliness-quotes/. I guess one thing poorly understood is the difference between Loneliness and Solitude. In the former the person is not comfortable with the self but in Solitude, he is in perfect harmony with the self. Isn’t it? Once we learned this difference through experience, he is capable of handling hardtimes ahead.

      Thank you Ann for your meaningful comment. The proverb is fantastic really. Mind-blowing.

      It´s very hard to put this in few words, I could go on forever what loneliness entails.

      To be concise, Loneliness is basically Absence, isn´t it? Loneliness is to be estranged from Self – that´s for sure.

      Since this present Culture is basically the outcome of this estrangement, it is natural that our parents and tutors have raised us in this absence.

      Our civilization is a civilization of orphans really, let´s face it.

      “When an orphan suffers, no one notices”. No one notices cause everybody suffers, that´s why people are deaf to each other´s suffering. Most humans think that life is about suffering, despite their refusal to admit it.

      As suffering is the issue, very few – if any – come “to rejoice”, that is, to heal themselves from this inner torment.

      The one who rejoices, is the one who consciously takes the road “back” to Self,
      consciously going through all levels of personal and collective suffering, facing man´s worst
      nightmarish drama – Separation – going through and beyond it, into primordial Unity with Self.

      Reuniting with Self is restoring Life to its original aspect, it is Healing, and this “rejoicing” – the real Solitude with Self – will therefore be heard by everybody, as everybody secretly wants to heal.
