What is madness?

…- To do over and over the same thing, expecting
different results.

I´d rather say that crazy is
TO FEEL THE SAME THING – that is, to be stuck in a
mental-emotional pattern -, hoping that your action
will bring you another perspective.

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.

    Thinking leads to feeling leads to action, leads to how you are, leads to how you are percieves and wether you act in accordiance with everything there is or not. Attention, leads to thinking. And no attention without belief. And no belief without doubt. Acceptance, will do the trick.

      There is though another kind of Attention which is beyond, which is Cessation of both thinking and belief.

      You can no longer doubt in the absence of belief, can you…?

      Acceptance…? Who accepts what?…And why…?

    Who is to accept?
    No-one. Without a subject, there is no objects to accept. Since there Can be no objects without attention.
    But with full acceptance, no objection – no objects.. There fore also no subject..

    A person goes both ways mutually.
    The true self is between these related illusions.

    • seeingwhatis says:

      What to accept? Sure you know. Everything! No objection, is acceptance. It requires not reacting as a subject. Not reacting at all to anything, with mind, only with nervous system.

    This is great. I also think madness is being unable to accept you have power over nothing

      At some point – if you are inspired -, I would like you to develop this thought

      “Madness is being unable to accept you have power over nothing”

      • jdeangelis79 says:

        In this world we are told to neglect God and that we alone hold all of the power, then when things don’t go our way we wonder why, it makes us mad.
        The truth is that we have no power over anything, the only power we truly have is self-control, that is the power to “Not do something”, that is the real power we have.

      • julienmatei says:

        That´s the most challenging and scary thing for human understanding.

        The power to do nothing…

        Indeed, this is exactly this insight I have pondered on these last two days.
