You are already doing that

Please, consider this:

I am sitting writing these very words. Now…- if I said “oh, how I wish to sit down and write”, while I am actually doing just that, you may wonder as to my being entirely sane…

And yet…that´s what people do.

“Everybody lives tomorrow or yesterday and never now…! I so long for a Now.”- she said.

“When you say everybody”- I replied – “you mean yourself. How on earth can you long for a now, when you undeniably are immersed in this Now? Only the person feeling disengaged from life wants `to live´. If you say, `I am going to live now´, you will resist and push away this present moment even more.”

Indeed…

We are always prone to create a gap between us and the very thing we strive for. This very gap is Desire – that is, Time, which is Fear, which is Pain, insecurity, insufficiency and frustration, which is doubt…which is fragmentation. Which ultimately is distance from ourselves.

Absence…

We think we are Absence. Absence striving to Presence…and in this uncanny process of striving, we create nothing but even more absence…more havoc…more infelicity.

So don´t wish to read these lines – you are already doing that!

Shall we continue to behave or decide to live?

cdcgwencharles :
Most people have been programmed to behave as if there are absolutes. Religion, sex, politics, education have yin-yang shadows of absolutes. To live betwixt and between the light and dark is to re-consider life in the grey areas as a re-discovery of the soul’s grey matter. One must first suspend disbelief as the beginning to what if there is no death…Would we then continue to behave or decide to live?

Me:
This is a hard one:

“One must first suspend disbelief as the beginning to what if there is no death…”

It is hard, because everyone has to discover through direct, first-hand experience NOW,
whether there is, or there is not something “after” death.

“Suspending disbelief” for most people means “enhancing” disbelief and misconception.

Never confronting anything directly, people live a second-hand life, falling victims
of their 
own stupid misconceptions – that´s why they go on “behaving”.

By fleeing death, man defends himself from life basically through all kind of mental
stratagems – this is his curse.

Only those who made the experience of Death know what life and living is about.

A great insight

The other day I was sitting at my usual cafe writing. At some point I felt beyond doubt that I was pursuing some very important insight, I was kind of onto something nominous which made itself heard inside of me, that indeed, while writing, a great soothing force was being unleashed both within but outside me as well.

There was a girl sitting next to me. A stranger. She somehow felt what I felt in those moments, no words were needed. I just couldn´t help but observing how that subtle but powerfully emanating stream of energy, hardly detectable by the intellect, was something “real”- something healing both myself, and the proximity around me. Who can say how far this “proximity” reaches out…?

So, in moments of despondency I remind myself of this meaningful episode, knowing that my writing goes beyond this very moment into something that regards us all.

Truth is not a mere mental concept, but an overpowering, felt reality…

I know that I know

This common saying “If there´s a will there´s a way” is not so common after all.

When you know what you want, when you have discovered what it is you are really aimed for, nothing or no one can stop you. Being totally dedicated and convinced of your call, there are no longer any doubts. Your purpose being clearly identified and stated, you simply act in the “right” direction. All frictions and resistances are left behind and you have free access to unimaginable energy.

Now, if you look with awaken eyes, you realize that many people never find out who they are, and what their specific way or task is in life.

They try this or that. It shows that is neither nor. They try again. Failing constantly. That would be rather appropriate to say: I fail therefore I exist. No matter if it´s about a job or a relation, whatever they “commit” themselves to, turns out to be another flop.

On a higher level nobody is unloved. On a human personal level, things are much more complicated. It seems that many people´s life is doomed to be a failure.

Descartes with his fearsome stupid “I think therefore I am”, has created more damage than he ever imagined… Many live through life being the victims of their own thinking, hence, giving their life to doubts. Of course, many times it is sensible to doubt, BUT LIVING IN CONSTANT DOUBT MEANS INVARIABLY FAILURE.

Doubting is modern man´s curse.

Doubt means continuous resistance, gruesome and incessant friction and conflict. Doubt is searching without finding. “Not knowing” anything for sure is also induced by doubt. Doubt leads mostly to frustration, draining you of all your energy. How is it possible to stay focused and happy if you have no energy, constantly living in conflict and frustration? Why do you think that everybody complains about being always tired and stressed?

Here´s the answer :

They have no clue to whom they are, they are the wrong persons in the wrong working places, they mostly have wrong partners because they fake everything, nothing really works in many people´s personal life, despite all appearance FAILING IS THEIR SHARE, all in all, it´s a flagrant fact: all these unquiet mourners are utterly unhappy and miserable.

They are miserable BECAUSE THEY DOUBT EVERYTHING!

Ultimately, doubt is wasting your precious life.

The obsession of doubt is virtue in this world. “Not knowing anything for sure” has become our everyday plague. Everything has to be relative and because it is relative, we don´t need to take a stand for anything. With other words, we don´t need to take responsibility for anything. What more idiotic and comfortable strategy than hiding behind ” I don´t know”…?

Now the question is: DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?…

Can you for a change take a different step, urgently consider and question yourself honestly, accepting that yes! It is possible to know – I CAN KNOW SOMETHING FOR SURE. I am prepared to respect and stand for my being and for my own truth!

Can I trust my knowing even if I am “wrong”? At the end of the day, does “wrong” exist? Wrong exists as long as you don´t take a stand and remain a coward.

Do I want to find out? Can I take the trouble to examine myself and find my own unshakable answers, or do I want to be taken care of this ageless relativistic bullshit propaganda because I am afraid?

Do you want to be a happy person with integrity? Than  ALLOW YOURSELF TO KNOW SOMETHING FOR SURE! That is, LIVE YOUR OWN TRUTH IF IT FEELS RIGHT!

This socratic statement that “I know that I don´t know” is outlived. What about I KNOW THAT I KNOW?

How would that sound…?

Emotion is the answer

The secret of fruitfulness, lies in the deep layers of sincere emotion. Emotion is divine resonance. Love and feeling go beyond duality, thus beyond doubt.

Joy does not select, it simply gives and takes.

Trust your Joy, as she will never fail you.

The certainty of the heart

We are constantly reshaping reality from what we think we are.

To believe involves doubt. Doubt is relativity. We doubt too much – we lose connection, wasting precious time.

REALITY IS BEYOND DOUBT, IT IS PURE CERTITUDE.

Think it over

Democracy is freedom to doubt.

We can be equal only in doubt, never in love.
