The absence of genuine Emotion – the curse of modern times

Her soothing touch always comes forth through the words and images she uses. I never feel unaffected seeing her output, she always awakens something within me. A most ethereal transparence of sorts, a sweet but poignant longing, which becomes almost palpable…unreservedly seizing and sweeping over me, leaving me no choice but partaking in it.

Despite, or rather, because of her talent and uncommon sensitivity, she writes to me:

“My openness to share feelings and emotions has always seemed to scare people and or seem unimportant or irrelevant. Like there is something wrong with me it’s often made me feel really odd and a bit of an outcast. No one often ever close to talk meaningful deeper with. Used to spend a lot of younger years with idiots just to numb my mind enough to try to fit in.

Do I know this…? It is lonely like hell not to be mirrored, with no one to genuinely approve of you, being constantly kept “outside” one´s inner true and beautiful story, which is the story of one´s passion and huge yearning…
So immensely sad…trying to fit in…having to numb one´s mind becuase of the sorrow of not being seen. How I recognize this…I have done my best to adjust, hiding my true self too.

Let´s face it: people can´t take openness and true passion. Strong emotion is highly disturbing and too challenging for their mediocre and petty lives. We end up feeling there is something wrong with us, when factually most of the humans today are odd insofar as they are emotionally dead. Rationally speaking, they´re the outcasts, not you and me, insofar as they are estranged from their true and natural feeling.

Utterly speaking, Life is about Emotion. Emotion makes life worth living. There is no meaning whatsoever in the absence of emotion. That being said, how can you ever have a meaningful connection in-depth with people who flee and obstinately discard emotion – that is, their soul?…

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.
