I suppress my humanity therefore I am

Once one no longer is connected but loses touch of the real, – to the natural immediacy of life – not only that one becomes estranged to the natural course of living, but one begins to vehemently fear, suppress, and, much worse, reject whatever entails to be human: urges, real needs, emotions, indeed, regular stuff which makes us human beings.

To be HUMAN today, to express yourself as such, has become an almost unreachable task. A luxury of sorts. A daunting taboo. You are being therefore constantly misunderstood and punished. Repudiated and in due time, excluded. I for one, feel like a disappearing species.

It is a highly irrational – not to say insane – and, from a basic outlook, a thoroughly maladjusted age. It´s kind of “I suppress everything in me, therefore I am”…

The baffling paradox is that on one hand, people have become utterly greedy and miserable, and on the other hand they settle for insidiously vapid and simplistic stuff with no significance whatsoever.

Humans of today are irrevocably caught in a bad dream, but at the same time, despite sensing and knowing this, they´d do anything to defend this idiotic scenario.

So we live virtually. Virtual being actually a synonym for escaping one´s human predicament.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life

“Work” derives etymologically from the word torture. Being afraid of life, we have separated Being from Doing. “Doing” is survival, that is, fear of being or not being. We produce something out of fear of being…that is the thing called “Work”.

Since time immemorial, we have been persuaded that Life is supposed to be hard, a hell to defend yourself from, that making a living through sweat and toil is the only valid thing…Such a horrid and stupid idea that we still faithfully take as real…

“What is” always provides, but usually we are totally out of touch with knowing and trusting this.

Don´t make a living,  MAKE A LIFE!

If you presently “make a living” with something you don´t like, I wouldn´t be so categorical to say “leave your job now”. Just learn to see and recognize fear, and gradually, having a clearer image of your improved self-worth, you will move on to a different level of confidence. In this renewed confidence you will learn to recognize the presence of What is, letting yourself be guided by It.

Trust this process!
