Isn´t it strange?
We invariably expect others to accept and love us, yet we don´t approve of and accept ourselves. In fact, others respond to how you see yourself, yes, to what you give or not give to yourself.
How can others be generous with us, if we are stingy with ourselves?
The more we try to find ourselves through others, letting exterior circumstances define who we are, the more stressed, unfulfilled and unhappy we become.
We secretly crave for others´approval, that is why we are so
concerned and afraid about their opinion, as in fact, we are afraid
to look inside ourselves.
As long as you fail to see that your own approval of yourself is the answer to the contentment and fulfillment you obsessively seek for in others, you will be the slave of everybody´s whims and mischief.

Understanding is freedom.
“If you achieve “understanding,” what would you do with it?” she asked.
The answer is simple:
“I” wouldn´t do a thing. Once you understand, the only thing required
is being receptive.
So I would just let myself “being acted” by that inner imponderable freedom…
Life is the best director once you let it unfold.

To act for real is an act of totality. Our actions being anything but total, create thus confusion, discomfort, ultimately violence.
I have been pondering a lot the last days about what entails to heal yourself. It implies that once you manage to heal, you heal everybody around you, yes, the whole world.
But to heal…oh my God… – it is really an inhumanly difficult task.
People are sick, the whole age is utterly diseased. This disease I find first of all within myself. Overwhelmingly tough: It´s a complete, seemingly impenetrable darkness.
What am I facing in the worst moments…?
What is it really we are being collectively confronted with?...
How do you treat a sickness with no diagnosis?
If it was only my life drama, ok, it would be relatively
easy to find an answer and a way out. But it´s much more complex.
Everybody is in big trouble, the whole world is in trouble, and I have been feeling this deep pain and dangerous unrest within my soul these last days.
Where do you start, how do you go about…? Who is willing to
closely consider these questions? It´s a seemingly unsolvable equation.
Practically, there is nowhere to go really. Behind the scene, nothing happens, and I really mean Nothing. No matter the success they all feign, everybody fails.
You blatantly feel that there is nothing worthwhile doing. Whatever we do is compromised…
Our prevalent models are completely obsolete.
The only thing you´re left with is your willingness to directly face and try
to understand this real state of things – this incredible hopelessness and loneliness.
Yes, you are left by yourself with this collective hell, practically with no choice, other than delving into it.
So I delve…
There are moments when I manage to go through that hellish pain and “nothing-happens-ness” and come out in lucidity and peace.
ONLY THAT PEACE HEALS. THAT PEACE CREATES A CONTEXT OF TOTALITY.
First in that totality action becomes success and not violence. Only in that totality you are free…In that new context there is no longer “I win-you lose”, but “I win-you win”.
So your only obligation is actually to heal. Yourself, and the people whose lives
ONLY INDIVIDUAL HEALING CREATES A NEW HEALTHY CONTEXT FOR US ALL.
If we don´t see this impending necessity, we will all remain some pitiful failures
continuing to live in insidious shadow.
