Can we break free from inner and outer blockages through Art?

Nothing is definitively said or done.

To dare consider everything anew, to “seize” the moment
as an inspired improvisation – to question and examine it all out of a sense
of freedom and not going by the rule.

Life is about jazz, nay, LIFE IS JAZZ, yet very few seem to see or want to understand this.

Sadly, everyone wants to play it safely, and the consequence is that true expression
has become almost anarchic in our days.

Conformity is safety… I want to ‘play jazz’ yet how can I when I do not where the notes start, how the tune goes…? :-)

I have been more aware, and as you say, aiming for true expression recently… it is harder than it seems, when you are consciously aware of behaviour/thoughts/feelings, because past patterns are so tightly held that is hard to see past them, to understand where and how to break free.

First we must see, before we can change.

Take the Change and in the process you begin to see – that´s the way it goes.

Who in you wants “to understand”?…Give it thought…

It is in actual fact the “inner authority”, this thief in you which is the past, the ubiquitous conditioning, the societal voices keeping you captive, hating change, preventing you from letting go and finding out.

These patterns are terribly difficult to break, I know that well.

Please listen!

YOU HAVE TO STOP BEING “AWARE”…WHAT WE IMAGINE BEING AWARENESS IS AN ILLUSION. That because “True Awareness” is beyond any conscious pursuit, it actually belongs to the so-called unconscious mind.


Write first and analyze after! – that´s the way it goes.

Trust your gut feeling IN THE SECOND! Only in total spontaneity you can fathom something…

You don´t need to know HOW THE TUNE STARTS, or how it goes…just start.

Hum if you have to, hear the sounds around you, talk senselessly, hit any rhythm with
your fingers…

This is the ultimate truth: LIFE OBEYS NO PREDICTABLE PATTERN…simply dare admit that.

Don´t try to break free – you are actually free. You just are finding out this now.

Watch out your emotions

Your feelings are the map to what is about to happen.

A dialogue between Mrprose and me

He says:

We do support each other, and eventually I think we create networks of support that we may rely on. As for feeling, yes, it is a part, but one that may come with a bit of time. I know that I have not yet learned to truly feel. It’s a process to discover.

My answer:

I was thinking of thatnot too: we create networks of support that we may rely on. It is a real priority as most people today, – especially the young generation – are utterly confused as there is no one to guide when it comes to what Real Living is about… Many are in deep pain, and due to the fact that the ones who are supposed to give guidance – parents, teachers, psychologists, etc. – are also afraid, they cannot therefore give the right support. There is basically no one there to turn to…

That is why I asked you whether you ponder on talking in schools.

Please listen carefully:

You don´t learn to be hungry or thirsty. It ´s the same with feelings.
Thus, YOU CANNOT LEARN TO FEEL…you feel, feeling is spontaneous, implicit, a concrete reality insofar as everything around is the outcome of our inner emotional state.

The problem is that this present age is afraid of – and discards real feeling, tacitly preventing us from our embracing our greatest treasure: EMOTION.

Everything boils down to this – Emotion…
I said innumerable times – LIFE IS EMOTION.

Emotion is the right answer to life. Meaning, self-worth, gratitude, creativity, all great things are the outcome of emotion. Unlike what you heard, it´s Emotion which is the real power behind shining intelligence.

So I tell you again: you cannot learn to breath – you cannot breath tomorrow, can you…? 🙂
The same goes for feeling…Feel, feel and feel…Feel the necessity of feeling. Feel even if what you feel can be unpleasant.

Life is ultimately a Mystery to feel, not an intellectual procedure.

What you need to observe though is the fear invested in your feelings, understand it and gradually rid yourself of it.

Block one emotion and the rest suffer

I reblog this most amazing, lucid, dispassasionate and true observation made by a
14-year-old boy.

“I talk about emotion a lot. It could be because I’m exploring what exactly it is. I think people as a whole are beginning to explore emotion more too. And the exploration of something like that, something as powerful as the feelings that we feel, is enormous. It’s massive. It’s scary, for sure, but that’s because it’s still hidden in uncharted waters that are just waiting to be charted.

Emotion plays a central role in our lives, whether we choose to express it or compress it. I realize that much of my inspiration derives from my feelings. It’s just a major part of being human, of feeling and seeing life.


It seems like sometimes nobody wants to hear you. They just want the pretty little, docile you. Well that’s not really you, and honestly, you shouldn’t listen to them. (Photo credit: nathangibbs)

As I’ve written about before, a lot of emotion is tabooed in modern society, because it isn’t safe and it certainly isn’t comfortable. How many of us are okay with open displays of grief or anger? Not many. But both anger and grief are a part of each and every one of us. When we deny that to ourselves, we deny ourselves from expression.

So as a result, we try to hide the feelings we don’t like within ourselves, and discourage displays of those feelings from others. If we can smile and laugh all the time, why ever not? Unfortunately, nobody can laugh and smile all the time. Not legitimately, at least.

The thing is, we don’t realize that all of our emotions are interconnected, and when one suffers, when one is plugged away rather than allowed the freedom to be released, the rest are affected. Somebody once told me that every part of the body is connected. It makes perfect sense, really – the muscles rely on the brain, the brain relies on the blood, the blood relies on the heart, etc. When you’re sick, the stability of your entire body is impacted. And I found it particularly interesting that oftentimes cancer for a certain part of the body ends up spreading to other parts and damages them as well. Being that I find so much interest in balances, it intrigues me that when even just one part of the system falls out of place, the rest are influenced negatively.

It’s exactly the same way for emotion. You cannot express in one way if you suppress in another. Acceptance comes into play here – can you accept your feelings, even the uncomfortable/painful/difficult ones? If you can, the equilibrium is allowed a chance to survive. If you can’t, the equilibrium cannot be. It’s that simple.

And as I’ve said before, emotion can be everything sometimes. It’s what makes life so sweet, so exciting, so unpredictable. For the most part, it’s of our control. Emotion to me is a teacher on how to live moving with the flow rather than against it.

All emotion is equal, important, and felt for a reason. Emotion has it’s time and place, certainly, but it should never be pushed too far aside, because when even one emotion is suppressed, all of the rest suffer.”

The world is your reflection

The whole world outside is your reflection.

Everything outside is connected with you. You are the master of your reality, and “reality” means your feeling ;  if you understand that, you will take back your personal strength. You will – pure and simple – start being honest with yourself.
How you feel inside, is perpetually reaching out  the world. All the confusion of the world is to be found in yourself, in YOUR FEELINGS.

The ultimate reality is YOU. Your emotions. The Universe communicates with and through your feelings.

How do you feel just now?  If you don´t feel well, don´t pretend you are well. Accept your pain, because only by excepting it, it can heal.

Once you heal, you heal the whole world.
