Wisdom and Word – the tools against the dark and blind forces

Obviously, most people give their power away, because it is to damn difficult to find out for yourself, and so they invent some outer authority – the so-called State – which compensates the inner lack of contact with their inherent power.

MOST PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO FIND OUT THEIR TRUE DESTINY, as it is excruciatingly difficult to individuate.

It´s something like ”I prefer to bargain my life and precious energy away just to escape my not knowing how to live and respond to the immediate challenge of life. I give you my everything in order to get away from myself.

Angela:
What you say is true. Also I think that (perhaps even most people) never delve that deeply into introspection as to how to best live. The follow the dictates of what “success” means in the general consensus of society and hope they can do what it takes to be successful in society, which usually amounts to material success, the outer trappings of a well-lived life. The creative, intellectual and spiritual side is lost to most people. They don’t see it as relevant or important enough. They are content with the surface of things. If they can keep up their “life style” and others do not interfere with that they are happy and if they are not happy they get an addiction of some kind to make them feel better in the short-term. Organized religion plays to this empty feeling as well and offers all kinds of feel-good thought forms.

What though, is the greater potential? Do we have one? And how best would it be put onto an evolutionary track?

I love your way of thinking, you are one of the few, very few I have met who have such courage.

Me:
I´ve always spoken out my truth, but I hardly received any resonance feeling many times that I might be totally “wrong”, that I somehow deceived myself unbeknownst.

It´s been a hell of a journey up to this point. Dante had Virgil, Odysseus had his crew…most people have someone…I had no one to guide me, someone beside me throughout these years of wondering in the underworld to tell me if I´m right or totally self-deluded.

So Word and Reflection have been my only tools to survive in these really “outlandish”
regions of being.

Now since few days, I am coming out of this Inferno and these my insights and my “way of thinking” have been the very shield against these atrociously dark and blind forces.

To use Wisdom as a key out of Hell…Yes…Wisdom is healing and restoring me…

Indeed, courage was for me a matter of survival – nothing more or less.

So, I said all this to give you a hint as to the gratefulness I feel reading your last words
in your comment:

“I love your way of thinking, you are one of the few, very few I have met who
have 
such courage.”

I bow and say Thank You.

Our name is quick fix

The thing is that I would like to write longer posts, but I am aware
that the longer the text, the less chance to be read…

People have almost no patience nowadays, they are not at
all interested to deepen a subject at length. Rather unfortunate…

One has thus to develop this uncommon skill of writing so concentrated and so powerfully, that things that once were pursued and wrought in a whole book, necessarily have to be conveyed in few lapidary lines. 

Imagine Dante writing Divine Comedy in few lines only. Or Shakespeare
rendering his plays in no longer than a page. Quite absurd also for
Beethoven´s symphonies to be no longer than a minute.

Utterly surreal…but so it is:

Absurdity for the absurd.

If you have a message to convey you have to write absurdly
and whippingly short if you want to be heard.

Let all illusions die

All these long years of reading and thoroughly studying books:
Dostoyevsky, Hermann Hesse, Law of attraction, self-help, positive thinking, Dante Alighieri, Homer…Western and Eastern philosophy, you name it… To no avail.

In hindsight, even the so-called sacred books showed to be useless too. Nothing seemed to help. Not even prayer.

The absence was compact. The Sky was ruthless in its silence.

Lately I have finally understood:

NOTHING AND NO ONE COULD HELP ME.

I was totally on my own. With nothing to go after. I had only my intuition and gut-feeling to rely on. Only my readiness to examine.

I had to accept and be fully responsible in this fearful loneliness. Fully being aware that there is no one to turn to.

Who to ask, when most of them either give you ready-made answers, or plainly deceive themselves and flee…?

So…Know that there are no answers to get anywhere. There are no saviours
to back us.

There is only the realization of this state of affairs: Each has to confront his loneliness.

No matter if you have 5 wifes and 10 kids, whatever you do, wherever you are, you are on you own.

Always.

They say we are born lonely and die lonely. Bad news:

WE ARE LONELY ALL THE TIME IN BETWEEN!

This is the hardest insight to accept. But the only true.

Only daring to realize this painful predicament, you become real, and assume the greatest task:

TO KNOW YOURSELF, LETTING FEAR AND ILLUSIONS DIE.
