I suppress my humanity therefore I am

Once one no longer is connected but loses touch of the real, – to the natural immediacy of life – not only that one becomes estranged to the natural course of living, but one begins to vehemently fear, suppress, and, much worse, reject whatever entails to be human: urges, real needs, emotions, indeed, regular stuff which makes us human beings.

To be HUMAN today, to express yourself as such, has become an almost unreachable task. A luxury of sorts. A daunting taboo. You are being therefore constantly misunderstood and punished. Repudiated and in due time, excluded. I for one, feel like a disappearing species.

It is a highly irrational – not to say insane – and, from a basic outlook, a thoroughly maladjusted age. It´s kind of “I suppress everything in me, therefore I am”…

The baffling paradox is that on one hand, people have become utterly greedy and miserable, and on the other hand they settle for insidiously vapid and simplistic stuff with no significance whatsoever.

Humans of today are irrevocably caught in a bad dream, but at the same time, despite sensing and knowing this, they´d do anything to defend this idiotic scenario.

So we live virtually. Virtual being actually a synonym for escaping one´s human predicament.

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.
