“Me and mine” – the prerogative of Hell

Hell is not the other – as Sartre mused – but You.

You, the prisoner of your selfishness.

Wisdom and Word – the tools against the dark and blind forces

Obviously, most people give their power away, because it is to damn difficult to find out for yourself, and so they invent some outer authority – the so-called State – which compensates the inner lack of contact with their inherent power.

MOST PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO FIND OUT THEIR TRUE DESTINY, as it is excruciatingly difficult to individuate.

It´s something like ”I prefer to bargain my life and precious energy away just to escape my not knowing how to live and respond to the immediate challenge of life. I give you my everything in order to get away from myself.

Angela:
What you say is true. Also I think that (perhaps even most people) never delve that deeply into introspection as to how to best live. The follow the dictates of what “success” means in the general consensus of society and hope they can do what it takes to be successful in society, which usually amounts to material success, the outer trappings of a well-lived life. The creative, intellectual and spiritual side is lost to most people. They don’t see it as relevant or important enough. They are content with the surface of things. If they can keep up their “life style” and others do not interfere with that they are happy and if they are not happy they get an addiction of some kind to make them feel better in the short-term. Organized religion plays to this empty feeling as well and offers all kinds of feel-good thought forms.

What though, is the greater potential? Do we have one? And how best would it be put onto an evolutionary track?

I love your way of thinking, you are one of the few, very few I have met who have such courage.

Me:
I´ve always spoken out my truth, but I hardly received any resonance feeling many times that I might be totally “wrong”, that I somehow deceived myself unbeknownst.

It´s been a hell of a journey up to this point. Dante had Virgil, Odysseus had his crew…most people have someone…I had no one to guide me, someone beside me throughout these years of wondering in the underworld to tell me if I´m right or totally self-deluded.

So Word and Reflection have been my only tools to survive in these really “outlandish”
regions of being.

Now since few days, I am coming out of this Inferno and these my insights and my “way of thinking” have been the very shield against these atrociously dark and blind forces.

To use Wisdom as a key out of Hell…Yes…Wisdom is healing and restoring me…

Indeed, courage was for me a matter of survival – nothing more or less.

So, I said all this to give you a hint as to the gratefulness I feel reading your last words
in your comment:

“I love your way of thinking, you are one of the few, very few I have met who
have 
such courage.”

I bow and say Thank You.

The signposts have fallen, unblazed trails lie before us

Verily so…Where do you go, who are you to follow when they all pointlessly
rush around with no destination?…

As Jung puts it, there are no longer any signposts to follow; the only direction shown
to you by them all, leads invariably to the secure land of failure and perdition.

You tread in a desert of total uncertainty. A no-man’s-land filled with ruin,
and unspeakable perils. With howling loneliness. You grope in this insidious darkness
which takes all imaginable or unimaginable shapes, ruthlessly giving itself for light.

Those you meet on your way are often calamitous souls disguised in normal people, 
whose only task is to drag you into ever more darkness and mishaps.

The acknowledged prevalent goal in anything leads inevitably to hell, and they
all hustle thither…

NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IN THIS PRESENT PARADIGM, IT  FAILS. With
no exception.

Unless you want to pursue this by all trodden path to naught, you find yourself
being more lonely than loneliness itself.

Unless you want to embrace Death – that is, being “alive” but dead – you will have to face the trial of this uncanny loneliness and darkness, heading towards the forgotten Source of Life.

There is no path to take.

The Path is uncreated.

You have the right to be unhappy

Most humans want to punish others for their being unhappy.
Unhappiness is virtue. We live in democracy – if I suffer, I have to make you suffer.

What the hell…Suffering is our pride.

If we are miserable you must be miserable too.

Watch out

To be the slave of “knowledge”, to live immersed in your habits, to always rely on 1+1=2 is the perfect way to hell.

A conditioned mind can never recognize the beauty and evasiveness of Life.

To strictly live by the rule, is pure insolence, an insult to Creation.

Life is an adventure second by second, a challenge – and usually, we kill this challenge with inappropriate answers.

The wrong answers, are the beginning of all missforutunes.
