Let her yearning tell you who you are

The transparency and clarity of her eyes…

Tender yet solemn…hope giving – gazing in-depth…- this quality which is so rare among
women today…

Grace, pain, dream, seriousness…there is vulnerability and mild sensitivity in her glance,
yet great dignity and composure.

Unassuming but firm insight.

I understand now why the images she chooses are so unobtrusively alive and immediate.

What she sees is a gift for the world to see…

The Dream is more precise than wakefulness

Tom:
Some writing comes easy, especially the exposition of the critical – the writing that comes from the head.  But what is the worth?

Most writing now painful and difficult.  Hours spent at the computer staring at the screen without a single keystroke.

You seek to capture a feeling or a thought that is true and important, or you inhabit a world of your imagination, and then you take that precious and evanescent wisp and try to reify it in the form of words.

You stagger through a maze of spaces, lost.

Me:
I recall Paul Elouard´s words:

“Write first, think after.”

His point may be worthwhile to consider…

I so recognize what you are “struggling” with. The “precision” we strive after may be so elusive.. So decisively eluding our deliberate pursuit…

That evanescent clarity doesn´t let itself be “captured”.

It is…

The in-between…

The un-wording…

The up-rooting…

One has to constantly begin…
And persistently remind oneself to end.

The ending of no beginning…

Sometimes the Dream is more precise than wakefulness…

Reason or Joy?… – your choice

Rational means to ascribe Fact the only supremacy, dismissing the obvious evidence
that Fact as such is but a choice dictated by a smaller or larger group of people.

Facts only can never bring you Joy. The best proof is millions of people´s failed lives.

Look to all people who lived before you:

Most of them were strictly rational, many never really lived, and so they died miserable, without ever being happy. It sounds cruel, but unless you are prepared to see, you will encounter the same dismal destiny. 

At some point you have to give up being rational.

The greatest challenge is finding yourself in the middle of the howling Drama, and despite inhuman hardships and setbacks,  to unwaveringly stick with, and remain anchored in Joy.

Yes… JOY! Your true Shining Shadow, the genuine Guide.

You have to be so irrational enough to believe in Joy even if you don´t feel it presently. Easier said than done…I for one easily forget this and time and again let myself be dragged into the mishaps of earthly life.

If you want to have a real life, at some point you have to defect from the ongoing world drama with its abysmal predicament of pain and suffering, and invalidate it as being no more than a dream.

You better… – because otherwise you´ll walk the paved way to misfortune.

The Inner Voice Talking Aloud

Isn´t about time to stop limiting yourself and others, to show and express
who you really are, to allow, approve of and release your true greatness?

To let your inner Joy and yearning shine upon you?

 

Enough with parsimony and mediocrity.

Enough with hiding. Enough with doubts. Enough of listening to
the insignificant voice of the ego.

 

Let this Ego go. Let Fear go.

You are the gift of this mighty Universe.

Be bold, be your true dream. Infinite power is at your disposal. Know that.

 

You are this infinite Creation longing for itself through you.

It´s about time for you to be You:

YOU – THE LIGHT OF LIGHTS.

You are real because nothing is real

I am aware that the following is a highly unusual outlook on life and can be easily taken as pure existential extravagance, but the ones ready to hear, will hear the resonance of these words:

It all seems real, yet it is not.

This manifested world is a Mirage. A dream.
Some kind of playful will-o’-the-wisp.

Yes, you start Being Real, the moment you understand that
NOTHING IS REAL.

Then and only then you are free – knowing that nothing is real,
you are free from illusion,
free from fear, free from frustration, unhappiness and clinging.

This Freedom is the Uncreated Joy – Who You Really Are.

In this freedom you can create and you can juggle with it all.

Dreams in reality

Life is a dream. You turn life into reality when you dare to dream now.

A dream comes true

Indeed, in this very second I feel such an incredible far-reaching joy and gratitude. What I long wished for, and didn´t happen, now it happens. Yes, I see a dream coming true:

My eager wish to communicate and share, my desire to initiate a place where we can dare have a real debate about uncomfortable topics,
questioning things that are consciously overlooked, well…now this is happening under my eyes on Mirrors of Encounters.

It is a hard journey. Many times during the day I feel hopelessly lonely and lost, dealing with insights that almost nobody is interested to hear, accept or take up. I meant many times to give up writing here. But sometimes it´s good not to give in.

Now at last…! comments are made, when we dare exchange and share our experiences, it feels actually that we create a breath of fresh air.

As realmanure. wordpress.com says:  “I do not see a cure in sight for the world’s malaise. But we must live somewhere in the middle of optimism and pessimism.” Indeed, this timid voice of hope and – why not – new lucid optimism, makes itself felt. I for one, begin to breath as if a burden is being taken away from my chest. This communication is like fresh oxygen to me.

I feel it, it gives a precious feeling of promising joy and new meaning. It is still hard – working with oneself is the hardest job you can do – but now, when this wheel of communication has slowly started to spin, I can say this energy is unbelievable. IT IS REAL, this presence created out of honest communication is undaunted and  powerful.  It goes beyond this very context, into something far more comprising than we are aware.

I guess if I feel this blessed energy of real hope, it is for sure going to reach out to many others who sincerely are on the same track of Self-recover and Self-retrieving – the most mighty of all journeys.
