Retrieve your dignity

Stop lying to yourself!

What are we longing for really?…

Everybody is longing for something.

Quite obvious, Yearning is the motivation behind every person´s action.

I don´t remember someone to have ever questioned this, but
I see myself compelled to look into the very nature of yearning,
as longing has only brought me overwhelming sorrow and distress.

It is so paradoxical – the more I longed the less I received. No matter what.

The more I longed for something the more distance I created between me and
the desired thing.

Really, yearning has felt like a curse. The more yearning, the more sorrow
I received. Invariably, the more unfulfilled I felt.

So after so many years of pondering, I seem to have come to some kind
of insight about this. What happens is that WHEN WE YEARN, WE CREATE TIME repudiating here and now, reinforcing the separation between our desire and its fulfillment.

It comes down to this: if you want something or someone, you have to stop yearning,
raising the most uncomfortable question:

WHAT, OR WHO ARE WE YEARNING FOR SO BADLY?

What is fulfillment ultimately?

Can it be that whatever longing, is longing after the ineffable Oneness, with Yourself…
WITH LIFE BEYOND DUALITY?

Longing enhances duality, and  AS LONG AS WE ARE CAUGHT IN DUALITY,
we will most likely indulge in even more suffering and distress.

I wish I had a clear answer on this, but as far as I can see
if we want to realize what we long for, we have to stop longing and “reach out” for that very inexplicable state of initial non-duality – oneness – which is our most truthful nature. 

If I say “Oneness”, for most people this word will sound like a total absurdity – a mere lifeless concept – that´s the difficult part since very few humans have ever tasted what
Oneness entails.

We have to start living as if duality didn´t exist.

In plain language, if you want to have what you yearn for, you have to drop yearning, “reaching”- that is, being in – a state of veritable, unfeigned contentment AS IF YOU ALREADY HAD ALREADY THAT DESIRED THING. Once feeling dignity and contentment, you will have a fairly better chance to fulfill your longing. 

Does it make sense…?

A question today

Can ever a free man of dignity and honor be friend with someone whose life is naught but a sum of lies and self-deceit?

I say this again

To know things “in general” means to lead a mechanical life, it is to assume no personal responsibility. To assume no responsibility is in fact not acknowledging yourself. “No responsibility” is to remain in a vague tepid zone, where you are no one, where you have no real face, no dignity, where you are a dispensable entity with no name – responsibility comes from “respond”, and only someone with a name can be responsible.

Only the one, who responds, understanding that Life is a Constant Exception is able to get a clear picture of reality.

So stand out, bear your name with dignity and be your own exception!

You are what it is

Everything looks the way it looks, due to your perception. Nothing outside you exists without your perception. You are everything there is, you are the problem to solve. The world looks as it does, because you are the way you are – you participate consciously or unconsciously to everything in this life.

So, WHAT SENSE ARE YOU GIVING TO EVERYTHING AROUND YOU? HOW DO YOU WANNA SEE IT ??

Things become in due time just the way you wanna see them. So, stop blaming others, recognize your greatness but also your shortcomings and mistakes, and take back your force, your dignity, confidence and responsibility for being happy and the world will change along with you!

About character

Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught.
