The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it

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.

    And the more one speaks it the further away one departs from living it….

    ….Is there a need to convey anything, really? What is that need?

      If you are travelling with others in car heading toward a precipice, whilst the passengers obstinately turn a deaf ear, you do need to tell them, or actually to shake them.

      That car is this present civilization.

      Unfortunately we cannot get off this car. So yes, I think the truth must somehow be convyed, Talk or die along.

        I believe it is up to the individual to assume control of his/her own car and allow others to do the same. One cannot successfully superimpose their own experiences (truth?) onto another. We are all entering from our own unique angle and can only determine our course from moment to moment as the challenges arise. To be ‘forearmed’ with someone else’s truth is to respond from someone else’s truth rather than our own spontaneity – which is pure experience.
