The greatest human contradiction

Man loves his unhappiness at the same time is hardly struggling to get rid of it.

Valentine says:
In some way or another, I’m happy for unhappiness. It’s a force that creates happiness. To live in a perfect world would be imperfection, a boring path. There is not much to be achieved from happiness. Unhappiness on the other hand holds a lot of value as much as I am saddened by its existence. Unhappiness for me is a truth to be told.
I myself hold in high regard the idea of ‘seeking’. It is the unfound that keeps humanities journey alive in my opinion.”

Me:
So, following your line of reasoning that you are happy for unhappiness as it is the force creating happiness, it means subsequently that what you call “happiness” is not more than a modified and disguised unhappiness.

Intrinsically we are unhappy on a permanent basis, so out of a need for variation or consolation, now and then we call our deliberately chosen misery – happiness…

Are you aware how you play tricks on yourself?…

Be honest: Have you ever been truly happy as to state that “there is not much to be achieved from happiness”?

How can you call “impefect” something you haven´t experienced?…

The truth of the matter is that nothing worthwhile is achieved in unhappiness, and that everything truly great is being achieved in happiness, happiness equating deep peace.

Can you understand that you defend your right to be unhappy by stating that Unhappiness holds a lot of value and yet at the same time you are saddened by its existence? This – if anything – is a total contradiction in terms.

Somewhere deep within, you must be aware of this Truth, but you are hiding yourself from it, blatantly contradicting yourself.

As I said: Seeking is escaping What Is.
Fleeing themselves obviously keeps most people alive.

This insidious idea of “alive” is the eternal wheel of misery and unhappiness for ever reinforced by the ego…

What an incredible paradox: Man loves his unhappiness but at the same time is hardly struggling to get rid of it…

I must thank you for your words though – it´s been a very enlightening survey into the inner labyrinth of human nature.

You do confirm what Auden once said:

“We would rather die in our dread than climb the cross of the moment and let our illusions die”

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.
