Mediocrity is our name, cowardice – our icon

We crave safety and security, because, we are afraid of the unknown.
In fact, we are afraid of anything which surpasses our entrenched shallowness and trivial common sense. We want this Grand Cosmic Phenomenon which is Life to match our petty and nonsensical expectations. Bad news – Life never does.

That´s shy we are unhappy – but change it?…Never… – we only bargain with infelicity in our all too “humane” realm – we know at least what we have…

Very few – if any – take healthy risks. The evidence of this can be felt at all levels of this present society. We live a foolishly predictable and boring life, as our only virtue is to play it safe.
Drones. That´s what we are. Indeed…too much life or emotion scares…

Mediocrity is our name, cowardice – our icon.

I may sound like a fool asking these questions, but someone has to
pose them:
Where are the big feelings? Where is the passion that animates and motivatesour soul? Where are the true poets, musicians, the visionaries, our dreamers?…
Where is the spiritual magnanimity which has defined true human endeavour?
Where is our dignity, our courage to show ourselves we are worth a better destiny?

I for one, don´t see it anywhere.

Do you?…

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.

    I see it perhaps a little in the Mortality musings of Christopher Hitchens. I miss it. x
