Meli asking

“Where to fit into this world, Julien, where…?”

Me:
This sounds like a terrible platitude dear Meli…but really…You can only fit into yourself…Once you truly thoroughly understand that, “the Place”, the Hint, your Sense – the Why of You -, will be simply conveyed to you…

She:

Sounds very wise, thanks…

At the moment I’m just a bit desperate about all these neo-liberal changes and developments in politics, reading a book also on how capitalism changes our mind-set etc… It’s all about competition, the ego now…. And I feel people become more and more like that…. And then there are so many other inequalities, sexism, patriarchy in general etc. You know what I mean…. Conservative, stupid people all over… But maybe that’s also arrogant to say, I don’t know!…

Me:

What you say is the “right” survey of this present age, no doubt about that. There is a but…And the big But is that Everything existing is our creation. Knowingly or mostly unknowingly you have participated to the way things look like. Don´t try to analyze this thought though. You just  simply have to delve into Yourself, and find The Place, that unchanging place, which is beyond strife, competition, categories…Of course, if you never made the experience of that “inner” place, my words seem totally inappropriate…

See it like this: Look at your despair without trying to change it…Escape it. Judge it. Stay with the problem. Don´t try to find What, Where or Where to… To the extent it´s possible, just delve…

Linger a moment. To quote Matt Licata:

“Just love yourself enough to just…Stop…”

Free us from our daily conditiong

It is a conspicuous fact that everybody acts according to his conditioning.

Philosophers and scientists think and behave in a certain way, musicians and poets in their way, politicians, spiritually aware, doctors, economists, hairdressers, house wifes, business people, thieves, activists, the rich and the poor, the gifted or the ignorant – so on and so forth – see the world in their specific way, each and everyone tacitly claiming his truth is the most valid.

The blind man claims his truth, the deaf, the catholic, the zen monk likewise.

But whose truth is more “valid”? The infatuated or the callous´, the whore´s or the saint´s, the truth of the “spiritually aware”, the truth of the atheist, or maybe the executioner knows best the course of things, or is it the victim…?

WHO IS THERE TO ASK WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT? WHO IS THERE TO TURN TO…?

Everybody is dying in his own language…

Whose truth are we expected to buy? Whose conditioning are we to swallow and digest today? In whose language do we want to die?…

This hollow and strenuous competition of opinion, everybody contradicting each other, everybody imposing and struggling to be right…

Really the world feels like a terrible nuisance sometimes. It´s a curse knowing that whatever “truth” you might say will be perceived according to the other´s conditioning and projection.

It is so infinitely tiresome and frustrating…

WHY SAY ANYTHING AT ALL, KNOWING BEFOREHAND THAT YOU WILL BE MISUNDERSTOOD ANYWAY?

Is it better to keep silent? I really wonder…

Can we ever break the mirrors of projection? Can we understand and be free from conditioning?

Can we ever…?
