Knowledge is a fucking jinx

Knowledge is a fucking jinx.

Ultimately,

An insult to aliveness.

They all want it badly, but are totally afraid of it

The isolated “Me” – the perpetrator of all misfortune

Life is relation, and whatever is fragmented is doomed.

She:
Our greatest enemy in life is “Me”. Learn to understand “Me” and make it an ally.

Life gets pretty dull with just “Me”. Learn to step out of “Me” and enjoy the company of “Us”, only then will you realize how it feels to be truly alive…

Me:
This “Me” – ego – lives in separation. Whatever is separated is in conflict, and healthy relation and wholeness becomes in due time its greatest threat. That because Ego is by definition problem-creating, that´s its agenda:

Dismal self-doubt, constant regression, guilt, insecurity, possession. Arrogance and insanity – this pathetic fragment imagining to be bigger than all other parts. It´s only purpose is to be “against”. To create havoc. To take revenge. To punish.

This is a terrible syllogism, but whatever is insecure, is security-craving – we all know this well.

“Me” can thus never have a genuine relation, as conflict can never be in relation with anything. Conflict creates isolation. And whatever is isolated is doomed, as isolation is the antinomy of life.

For the record, you can´t make it an ally, because this crazed and uncanny entity can´t be trusted, as it always thirsts for domination and supremacy.

Aliveness means actually seeing, understanding and stepping
out of Ego.

Aliveness is articulating relation, togetherness, wholeness.

What is the most important thing, after all?

Indeed, it is the energy you have.

Verily, Energy as the outcome of Enthusiasm – that invaluable thing which most
people lack today.

Enthusiasm – meaning to breathe God – breeding Energy, which is Aliveness.

Aliveness being Joy. Joy which is clear sight – intelligence.

Joy – intelligence in action. The Key to all Creation.

Without being consciously connected to the unearthly Energy you are no one.

Without energy and joy, life becomes relentless entropy, sickness, dismay, unbearable boredom.

A meaningless dream.

Transcending loneliness and present-day alienation

“How can a person who is “alive” live in a world that is “dead”
and not feel lonely and alienated?” asked me blueangelwolf.

Isn´t this a very essential question, if not, THE most essential, when you are
a decent person living in today´s world?

Erich Fromm considers the same predicament:
A person who has remained a person and not become a thing, cannot help feeling lonely, powerless, isolated in present-day society. He cannot help suffering, even though he can experience moments of joy and clarity that are absent in the life of his “normal” contemporaries.”
Further on:
“Not rarely will he suffer from neurosis that results from the situation of a sane man living in an insane society, rather than that of the more conventional neurosis of a sick man trying to adapt himself to a sick society.”

The following line is very illuminating and highlights the point I want to make:
“In the process of going further in his analysis, i.e of growing to greater independence and productivity, his neurotic symptoms will cure themselves.”

With other words, you can grow to such aliveness, gradually healing to such an extent,
that despite living in this dead world, you will reach the point of feeling neither lonely nor alienated. Along with it, you will naturally heal everyone coming your way.

I have to admit that I am the first to question the truth of my last paragraph.

But even if my reason considers this far-fetched, my Inner Voice
assumes this to be true beyond any doubt.
Most assuredly, despite being very much aware of the critical state of things, you may step by step come to realize that your distress of having been lonely along with the uncanny estrangement you once felt, are latterly nothing but loose memories.

Keep the divine dissatisfaction alive

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
