Living ourselves beyond division

Debra:
“Early in my life it seemed life’s floating was seamless, unquestioned, spontaneous.

The transition to adulthood brought with it a self-consciousness as the sense of separation between self and other, inside/outside seemed more and more apparent. ”

“In living with the constancy of change I wonder if we’re not inviting more and more the desire to become the unchanged?”

Me:
We were It all, but early on, we were fooled to believe that we were not in possession of it – of ourselves -, and so we “bought” the ubiquitous disease society force-feeds us with, that we need to look “elsewhere”.

Isn´t it so…? We have internalized this huge illusion that everything is “outside”, and the result is the constancy of placing ourselves outside ourselves.

We obsessively create and define ourselves as division.
The more you desire anything, the more you struggle, the bigger the gulf, the lesser you get, the bigger the misfortune. We all know this vicious circle. And yet, we stubbornly continue with the same half-witted procedure.

We strive to surmount this gulf outwardly, but actually, we hopelessly try to find bridges between different loose aspects of our scattered inner world.

We are inwardly dis-unified, can you see that?…Whatever we undertake, we irretrievably reinforce ourselves as cleavage.

I hear my Inner Voice telling me unbelievable things. Like these days when it said:

“You are in no need of knowledge. There is nothing to understand. There is nothing to act upon.This is all an unfathomable riddle, and you are this riddle. LIVE IT and the `action´ does itself”.

So you see…At first I do wonder what on earth it says.

But then I bump into this Jung´s quote in your post:

“We should grow like a tree that likewise does not know its law. We tie ourselves up with intentions, not mindful of the fact that intention is the limitation, yes, the exclusion of life.

Yes, The Voice knows.

So let´s forget “intention” and embrace the Riddle – living ourselves beyond division.

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.
