We fear this now-moment, as we are afraid of being complete

Why do we need a belief?

Any belief.

What is the function of belief after all?

Who believes?

Can we see that belief is the other side of uncertainty and that uncertainty is created by the constant contradiction, inadequacy and insufficiency with which we approach every single moment of our life?

Belief creates thus more fragmentation, more division, more misery. Where there is Wholeness and Totality of living, there is no need for any belief.

Where there is no belief, there is pure action…

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!

We have to give up the false assumption that Life is Separateness

Life is never one-sided.

But our thought is. Likewise our perception of ourselves and everything around us.
That´s the main problem of thinking basically: I choose “this”, on the expense of “that”.

We can´t imagine that a thing is both “this and that”…

Our choice is uncritically taken as the only valid assumption. Meaning that we inertially take our deliberate option as “The Thing”. It is clear that whatever we observe is biased by our ingrained one-sidedness.

Either you are a scientist, or a poet. To be a poet and a scientist doesn´t make you a reliable professional.

If I as a musician paint, compose or write and have scientific interests besides, turns me automatically into a suspicious character.

Stupidity consists of many things, but in this context, stupidity is always one-sided.

In fact, the beginning of stupidity is to be found in the shameless presumption of “either-or”. Either down or up. Stay or go. Christian or Buddhist. The list can continue interminably…

Truth of the matter is that we are irrevocably stuck in either-or and neither-nor.
In vapid concepts. Language too, may be our curse.

Most assuredly, an apple is not a pear, of course, a man is not a woman.

The problem is that thinking suspends the Natural Unity of Life – it sees the apple totally separated from the pear, the child from the “grown-up”, the woman from man.

With other words, another insidious side of stupidity is to be stuck in category-thinking. Further on – and this is the most scary characteristic for most people:

STUPIDITY SEES NO RELATION BETWEEN THINGS.

This falling short of seeing things in intrinsic relation is appalling. It is actually our doom.

SEEING THINGS DISTINCTIVELY SEPARATED IS PURE INSANITY.

We are supposed to mount but not descend, win and never lose, act obsessively without relaxing, go away but never come back.

The worst outcome of this delirious misconception is Progress – as in economic growth.

Growth can also mean tumor. Isn´it obvious? – We have totally bought ourselves into maintaining and fueling disease. Everybody with common sense sees the relation between economic growth and sickness – growth as a rampant bloating of fragmentation and disunity.

“Day-living” is our only zany answer. Night – as a metaphor for Mystery and Unknowing, the zone where our definitions are invalid – scares us. Too spooky. Too uncontrollable. 

This stupid idea of separateness has turned our life into an unbearable and absurd wasteland. In the absence of the Ineffable – the Wholeness of Being – and due to becoming explicitly rational, human relations have been ruined: man has become woman´s worst foe, and woman man´s worst nightmare.

Not being able to relax and come back to themselves, people live in total agony. Not being IN RELATION to anything, they cut themselves off from any reasonable living.

Lonely wretched strangers going nowhere.

To conclude.

Everything falls back to a wrong perception of Life.

Namely, THE ONE-SIDEDNESS OF THOUGHT, which breeds Separation, Fragmentation and Lack of Relation.

Fragmentation is the sickness of the Soul.

The enormously stupid and baleful assumption that Life is Separation is our death sentence.

There is not much of an option. We have to renounce this disastrous delusion and heal, embracing Wholeness.

Everything is in vivid relation to everything.

Don´t think Reality – be it!

Reality irrevocably transcends thought.

Subsequently, The Real doesn´t need to be considered intellectually,
the real requires to be acted upon.

Reality is Whole. Thought is fragmentation. What is fragmented fails to
grasp the whole.

Usually we dissociate Wording from Acting, and in so doing we indulge
in confusion and bigotry.
We kind of create an insuperable wall between us and Life.

CHOOSING IS POSTPONING!

The arrow hitting the target doesn´t hesitate. We do.

We kind of turn our whole life into an idle process of thinking and postponing.
No wonder our actions are tepid and meaningless.

Reality, being real IN REALITY, is the target. You don´t choose the target.
Reality chooses you when you let go of thinking and measuring.

Heed and trust its call!

Another story

Blinded as we are by clinging to the false idea of fragmentation, due to sloth and greed, we are not able to see beyond our state of isolation and grasp the whole picture of this self-evident truth : Nothing exists per se. NO EVENT IS A DISCONNECTED EPISODE. EVERYTHING IS INTERTWINED.
Everything always happens within a context and all things arise from a story. The Story requires a totally different approach and attention than our, so limited logic, can convey.
