A blessed encounter

We were vividly engaged in a great discussion.

Such incredible relief: for once, there was no misunderstanding, there was no need
for explanations – he understood it all, as if we were each other´s mirror.

At some point the conversation froze. We were both Silent. Awaiting.

I looked at him.

I almost heard his thoughts. He was solemnly pondering. Appropriating what I had just told him. Internalizing my earlier expressed insights. The echo of my words were unmistakably clicking into him, creating a new space between us.

The air became so soothingly alive.

It was almost palpable. He was healing. In that very moment.

He was giving himself to himself.

And as he was accepting my gift for him, I felt automatically
how he literally was giving myself to myself too…

Man´s most outrageous misconception

My Idea of reality is the only Reality.

Are we dying to live or living to die?

There is no solution unless we acknowledge the problem

T:
I believe the ‘offer’ made to us is more on the order of to-live-or-not-to-live than one of death avoidance. I think we have *learned* to ‘fear’ death, and that the only, real, natural solution is found in LIVING.

Humans seem to have a tendency to behave in ways that are contrary to the broader natural order. So there is nothing really ‘unnatural’ in that sense…about synthetics OR human behavior. I think that ‘anti-natural’ gets closer to what I am trying to express than ‘unnatural’.

Many parents in ‘developed’ societies nowadays have come to believe that their ‘job’ is done when their children reach majority ‘alive’ (as in not dead). But are those children really *alive*? Are the parents? Is the focus on death? Or life? It seems evident to me.

There is a big difference between (a) being aware of things that would interfere with living and (b) fearing death. Death is no less a transition in the Life Process than birth. Fearing ‘future’ death makes no more sense than fearing ‘past’ birth…or fearing every moment that we live. Thus I see fear as a perversion of awareness.

Are we dying to live or living to die?

Me:
The thought coming naturally to mind is:

Can we ever fully live unless we have learned to die now?

Is clinging to life living?

Is living according to any idea true living?

The perversion of awareness is actually OUR IDEA we hold about life. Whatever idea, stems ultimately from Fear. Thus Fear is the foundation of our unnatural or anti-natural “relation” to life.

Fear is consequently wrong relation to Life, cause fear exists only in relation to something.

The blatantly conspicuous reality is that everybody tries hardly to be someone. Instead of being alive they all try to be “special”. Being special is again, an inane wish to reinforce the idea – to live according to a thought.

They all “choose” to be, instead of simply being…that is, allowing the natural urge to unfold seamlessly inside and outside them. This demented hubris is man´s most dooming calamity:

“We are better and stronger than life. My resistance against anything living defines me. The more I fight and compete Life – the natural – the stronger I am.”

Such huge misconception lies at the base of our way of living.

And so the consequence is all this mad and senseless unfolding and escaping in the wrong thing: everybody is in the wrong place at the wrong time, pursuing the wrong activity, being constantly in the wrong context.

They usually marry the wrong person, they´re stuck in the wrong jobs, have the wrong friends…the list of wrongness is interminable. That is quite evident: the ones who are not supposed to be there, prevent the ones who are supposed to be where they belong. 

To answer you question:

How can these insane people breed any sane and wholesome kids…?
Of course they can´t. How can the children be alive, when the parents
are diseased?…

This utterly defective life-style leads inevitably to misfortune, suffering and madness, and hence at some point, as a way out of this, man escapes his furious insanity through conflict and irrational violence, ultimately creating war…- war meaning, everybody fighting against his own misconceptions…man fighting against his and others´ false ideas.

So yes, that´s the key question:

Are we dying to live, or living to die?

With other words, are we going to stubbornly stick to these our obsolete and death-bringing Ideas and destroy the whole planet, or do we have now the awareness of the prompting necessity to renounce and let go of this calamitous hubris?

The seeress confesses

“Am I maybe going insane?…Sometimes I have the impression that your blog was created for me…I feel that everything in my life has led me to where I am today and will be in the future…Everything just falls into place perfectly overtime…

The less I think…the less I do.. – the more amazing life…

It feels nice to go with the flow and hearing everything click with not much effort…”

Not a random question

I can give it to you, he said.

BUT CAN YOU RECEIVE IT?…

A Chapter of Friendship

This is Komal´s post which I reblog. I just love her words here:

“There were no words, there were no fears, among the passing hours of our days together a silent exchange of trust was taking place. Who would have thought that these feelings of safety and trust we shared would one day plant the seed of friendship? As time, patience, understanding, and acceptance were invested a flower of friendship started to blossom. We pulled out our books of life and started reading each page to one another. As each secret, weakness, and strength was revealed a new chapter was being written creating a legacy of memories.

Dear Friend,

Thank you for teaching me to trust and believe in myself.  Always listening in tranquility,  you never judged my past nor question my today,  The acceptance and concern in your eyes always diffuse the fears I hold inside. Thank you for restoring my faith in humanity and enabling me to be the person I am today. Your friendship has been the key to my growth and the foundation of my success.

A chapter of your friendship has been written in my book of life.”

Understand?…

Why should you…stand under?

Most people “upper-stand”.

Others “sub-stand…”

I guess the best is to middle-stand…
