There is nowhere to arrive

You know this already: every time you reached a destination,
you replaced it with another fancier one.

Stop the cursed wheel of becoming!
Release yourself from the compulsion of going anywhere!

LET ALL DESTINATIONS WITHER!

They always taught you to flee you. To feel less. To strive.
To punish yourself. To diminish you by struggling for a
non-existent ideal.

THERE IS NO IDEAL!

You are the one to be eventually “reached”. You are already
what you want to reach, but you don´t know this.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW…?

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.

    hi julien – great blog. all your posts point to a state of awakened consciousness that is qualitatively other than conventional consciousness. it is a state of consciousness beyond the limited and beyond the known. so yes, there is nowhere to go – out there. there is nothing ‘to do’.

    the question of conditioning and experience vs being awake is interesting. on the one hand, social education and conditioning are a pre-requisite for survival in the current world. at the same time, the same conditioning is the basis for conventional consciousness. and the earliest conditioning is the building material for ego and attachment to the past. being awake negates the ego, and the ego will pre-emptively, either in an individual or collectively, fight every attempt to become awake.

    the ego is real and is not real. from the point of view of conventional consciousness, the ego is very real and personal experience is real.

    ‘who am i?’

    what do you feel when you ask yourself this question?

    the transformation of consciousness you are pointing to involves a new and very different relationship to the past and individual experience. and therefore also, a new relationship to the ego. even an awakened person has a past, and to some degree, an ego. but the relationship of consciousness to that differentiated ego is different such that the ego does not occupy so much space and distort the now.

    from this point of view, the realization of this fundamental relationship is the only thing ‘to do’.
