Either we heal together or…

…perish separately, each one in his own special way.

The invisible renders the visible…

The way we function as a society is based on fear

Salma:
We honestly don’t realize how engrained fear is in our minds and how it affects almost every action (or non-action) we make.

Me:
Fear, being so ingrained, usually makes one totally lose perspective, as if nothing else existed. Most people today are hopelessly caught in the nightmare of their making. Their vision is thus totally biased and warped…Evidently, when the observer is fearful the action can´t possibly be anything but unloving.

Salma:
And that is why we can’t truly change. We can’t truly make progress from the same fear-based mind that exists in man at this time. We are fooling ourselves. Furthermore, for true peace to occur in this world, it has to come from within. 

That is, from that non-verbal awareness of the observing without any thought-based opinion of what is.

True Joy is before any outcome

You cannot heal yourself, or make yourself grow

My approach in my work is to understand and address my obstacles; the shifts then happen by themselves, organically, as an outgrowth of the non-self-judgmentally inquiry:

All the work you do here is based on understanding what you do and how you interfere with the natural process. If you try to do anything other than understand the situation, your effort will be a blockage, a resistance, an interference. You cannot make yourself grow; you can only cease to interfere. You cannot make yourself happy; you can only stop your judgments. Growth and expansion are natural; they are the life force itself. And you cannot predict its direction.

As long as you are not willing to look at and understand your Fear…

…Love will simply be another idiotic concept you can come up with.

If we are to receive pertinent answers, we surely need to pose the right questions

Yet sometimes,

THE ANSWER IS A CONSEQUENCE OF NO QUESTION.
