Our culture – a solitary story of the loveless self

Ultimately speaking, Life is the tacit, mutual relation between people, between you and me.

But alas, there is no intimate relation to speak about in this age of ours. Subsequently, where there is no relation, there is masturbation – that is, a solitary auto-arousal devoid of intimacy and love.

The cult of the self – that is the essence of masturbation – lies at the core of our culture.

 

I strongly recommend this poignant article:

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.
