I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these ineffable 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 and something dead, 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.
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…togetherness…finding new solutions, inspiration to live a richer life.
As I said, the Thing I am looking for doesn´t have a name yet, but I am convinced that through open communication, it will unravel Itself .
I don´t like long texts – real Creation happens outside time, the Second is the pulse – that is why I write many times in a concentrated, rather lapidary manner. The Word should be swift, like an arrow touching instantly the aim.
I admit that I find myself in a strange situation, as what I write about is many times a surprise for me too. I realize it is not the “usual me” writing all these things, but something else in Me, you may call it The Inner Voice. In this sense what I write is not “entirely mine”, as many times I don´t have a clue, “who” or “what” this inner voice is in me.
This voice is not “mine” in so far as I don´t “own” it; it rather “owns” me, it imposes itself on me and when It has something to say, I feel this as an inner urge which takes me in its command and “has me” express it.
It happens in the bus, on the street, it can come in the middle of a conversation with someone, it wakes me in the middle of the night.
It´s a crazy situation to be in, but this seems to be my share…
So I confess, what I write about is “new” to me too, I am on the verge to learn to implement and live these Truths, and learn from my own texts.
I find myself many times confused and rather estranged having no clue what the next step is.
In those moments of inner confusion and turmoil, I may look through the things written in my blog, realizing with amazement that I GAVE MYSELF ANSWERS earlier, but first now I am able to “digest” them!!
And if these things I write help me find a clearer way, it means that potentially they can help others with the same predicament.
It is not an easy task to try to give form to something which is diffuse, vague, that “something” which escapes accepted definitions.
Most of the times I stumble, facing enormous difficulty in putting right words to things that don´t obey mainstream criteria, and inevitably I run into obscure misunderstandings and disagreements,
and I cannot “defend” myself, as I cannot pretend I am right; I can´t argue about something I am not sure about.
Literature, like abstract philosophy, is outdated. Unlike many writers, I don´t think it´s enough with “interesting” texts, no matter how skillfully chosen words and noble phrases, if they have no direct bearing on real life, they mean nothing.
The spoken and written word has to be powerful, it has to convey passion and vitality, the real word touches instantly, it creates a real, felt impact, it materializes insight into action. Real word is like a piece of bread to the hungry.
In this sense, I wouldn´t dream of writing about things which haven´t derived from something meaningful.
I can see clearly that the things I observe and write about, have enriched me, empowered my actions, and made life quite rich and exciting. In this respect, if something flourishes, it is the best sign that Life is there.
I said before that quite often I am asked – and for that matter I ask myself many times – why I continue writing here, despite no real feed-back. “What´s in it for you?”, asked me a friend.
I would say that, MY GAIN IS YOUR HAPPINESS. If I say something that helps you improve and thrive, than somehow, something of your improved state will reach back to me, cause we all share the same adventure – Life.
And Real Life knows not the boundaries civilization has had us rely on.
I rest assured that Time has come for us to make a switch of perspective.
Let´s hope for a new space within us, let´s hope the Unknown will show us another way, another story…
