You are not your life story

Mirrors of Encounters

“Briefly, for me, non-attachment to feelings and/or ideas is the ability to watch, feel and experience without believing the narrative that might accompany the feelings or the experience and then being able to respond if appropriate rather than reacting.

It’s about living in the moment and surrendering to the unknown.”

Monica Cassani

How true her words ring here, as if she was talking to me: I realize awestricken that
my feelings are telling me a very treacherous story about myself.

This is such a trap:

Will I continue listening and identifying with this false tale about who I am?

Whose drama am I living which calls itself “me”?

Most of us are the convicts of our life stories. With an iron grip, these ageless narratives keep us hopelessly stuck in dreams which are not our own.

I take it again: unbeknownst, we live out ancestral nightmares, which constantly
deprive us of directly…

Do not follow the zeitgiest

What is primarily needed is not compliance without reflection, but a critical eye seeking the truth, a clear voice that dares to speak out, especially when it comes to uncomfortable issues. More important than indulging in further intellectual pursuit is to train our defiance.

If we stop being defiant, then we will end up in obedient recklessness which will totally destroy and disfigure us.

Be imperfect, be alive

Everything real is a dance between chaos and order, between consonance and dissonance. Dissonance creates consonance, and consonance needs its counterpart. Life is a glorious blend of beauty and ugliness. Only the dead are perfect, the alive is eternally imperfect! So I tell you, be imperfect, be alive!

This is what a worthwhile Life is about

Pure perception.

A sense of unobtrusive Order.

Clarity. Structure. Harmony.

Unforced discipline.

Inner Peace.

She told me to be fair

I was.

She didn´t like it.

Is he genuine, or, is he not…?

I kind of like Mooji, his Master may have helped him see parts of The Truth, but his inability to help others is quite conspicuous.

He says:
“Very often people say to me, ‘Mooji, I am so unhappy but you don’t seem to care or even want to know what is going on.’
And actually, it is true. I don’t want to know what you think is going on. And, I don’t believe you.
Nothing is going on.
You are happy by nature but think you are unhappy.
Your unhappiness is totally made up.
You are just too lazy to look inside yourself.”

Of course, unhappiness is delusional ultimately speaking, but to say to the utterly unhappy, or depressed, that his unhappiness is made up, that he is happy by nature, is indeed a sign of disrespect and cynicism. Too maliciously simplistic.

It is a rather suspect lack of compassion here, and for the record, of know-how.

What can a man do if the only thing he has ever known is illusion?

I say to you mr Mooji that it is you who in all likelihood are too lazy to look further into your real nature.

Don´t be exceedingly alive with the dead – unless you want to take on their vengeance
