Man escaping his inherent happiness

We invent a thoroughly mad and evil world just in order to convince ourselves that we don’t deserve to be happy.

After years and years of observation, I find that the most startling paradox about Man is that more than anything else, HE IS AFRAID OF BEING HAPPY.

Of course, this makes an outrageous “truth”, as most people would never willingly admit this…

So, fearing happiness, man is prone to subsequently believe that he deserves to suffer, to punish and in turn, to be punished. This outlandish misconception – maintained throughout the ages by the church, and later by the state – is the very basis from which this civilization has arisen.

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.
