Sacrifice the grey for vivid colours!

Enough with witless and compliant academic morons who know nothing about life and living, who have misled us into listless cowardice.

We are in urgent need of visionaries, of inspired poets, of fearless trouble-makers – the ones who help us retrieve our dignity, courage and lofty dreams.

The most ardent conundrum

Life is vigour, stable pulse in ineffable movement, mysterious beauty, vibrant sense. Blessed encounter.

How come then that most poeple choose to live “dead”…? – In a vapid state of non-encounter, absurdity, disingeniously predictable?

There is no worse enslavement

…than the constant need to have a reason for everything you do.

They all demean themselves so honorably

“I fail therefore I am.”

The tragedy is that most people will do anything to make you remain as dead as they are. We always bump into these calamitous souls who frustrate us proportionally with our lacking courage to live and truly be alive.

People are dangerous insofar as they never truly live

Nothing to misunderstand here:

Their frustration and unhappiness as the result of the never lived life, will spawn
huge violence and gruesome antagonism resulting eventually in war.

If we discard this obvious truth, we deserve a dire destiny.

It´s all it takes – ONE SECOND

Paradoxically, what makes the whole thing unspeakably difficult is that it is childishly easy; and being so “easy”, for most people becomes thus incomprehensible.

“It can not be, you are fooling me.”

We recognize but the difficult, the twisted, the whimsical, the distorted.

To most people, the miracle of “Life happening this very second” is some kind of abstruse, impossible “philosophical” truth, something which needs exercise, sacrifice to be “obtained”.

But this is the crux:

THERE IS NOTHING TO OBTAIN.

There is no road to it. No journey to undertake. Nothing to arrive at.

You either Live This Second or bargain it away for a promise. The empty promise of a future retribution.

It is terribly tragic and surreal: people go from one idea to another, changing experience to another experience, travelling, working, substituting relation after relation, and at the end of the day, they learn Nothing. ZERO!! Nada…

It is mind-blowing really: most humans don´t even get to know a single thing for real, as they never allow to be touched by the glimpse of A TRUE SECOND.

It´s all it takes: ONE SECOND. If you do one thing devotedly – understanding and approprating it pervasively – everything will rightly unfold!

It´s all that simple: Either you open yourself, trusting – thus fully living – this second as it comes, allowing it to guide you, or fight against it – against yourself really -, creating nothing but punishment, pain, sorrow and misadventure.

What life can you have when they all flee their true destiny?

There are very few humans who follow their destiny – their true call in life. Their real vocation, that is, TO LIVE.

Life and living is the last thing people think of.

The energy of a truly lived life reaches forth to everyone around. Energy creates meaning…Value. True commitment.

The absence of energy, the ubiquitous death people call life, creates nothing but further failure for each one of us.

If you don´t commit to Life, you commit to nothingness – to total absence of meaning and value.

Are we dying to live or living to die?

There is no solution unless we acknowledge the problem

T:
I believe the ‘offer’ made to us is more on the order of to-live-or-not-to-live than one of death avoidance. I think we have *learned* to ‘fear’ death, and that the only, real, natural solution is found in LIVING.

Humans seem to have a tendency to behave in ways that are contrary to the broader natural order. So there is nothing really ‘unnatural’ in that sense…about synthetics OR human behavior. I think that ‘anti-natural’ gets closer to what I am trying to express than ‘unnatural’.

Many parents in ‘developed’ societies nowadays have come to believe that their ‘job’ is done when their children reach majority ‘alive’ (as in not dead). But are those children really *alive*? Are the parents? Is the focus on death? Or life? It seems evident to me.

There is a big difference between (a) being aware of things that would interfere with living and (b) fearing death. Death is no less a transition in the Life Process than birth. Fearing ‘future’ death makes no more sense than fearing ‘past’ birth…or fearing every moment that we live. Thus I see fear as a perversion of awareness.

Are we dying to live or living to die?

Me:
The thought coming naturally to mind is:

Can we ever fully live unless we have learned to die now?

Is clinging to life living?

Is living according to any idea true living?

The perversion of awareness is actually OUR IDEA we hold about life. Whatever idea, stems ultimately from Fear. Thus Fear is the foundation of our unnatural or anti-natural “relation” to life.

Fear is consequently wrong relation to Life, cause fear exists only in relation to something.

The blatantly conspicuous reality is that everybody tries hardly to be someone. Instead of being alive they all try to be “special”. Being special is again, an inane wish to reinforce the idea – to live according to a thought.

They all “choose” to be, instead of simply being…that is, allowing the natural urge to unfold seamlessly inside and outside them. This demented hubris is man´s most dooming calamity:

“We are better and stronger than life. My resistance against anything living defines me. The more I fight and compete Life – the natural – the stronger I am.”

Such huge misconception lies at the base of our way of living.

And so the consequence is all this mad and senseless unfolding and escaping in the wrong thing: everybody is in the wrong place at the wrong time, pursuing the wrong activity, being constantly in the wrong context.

They usually marry the wrong person, they´re stuck in the wrong jobs, have the wrong friends…the list of wrongness is interminable. That is quite evident: the ones who are not supposed to be there, prevent the ones who are supposed to be where they belong. 

To answer you question:

How can these insane people breed any sane and wholesome kids…?
Of course they can´t. How can the children be alive, when the parents
are diseased?…

This utterly defective life-style leads inevitably to misfortune, suffering and madness, and hence at some point, as a way out of this, man escapes his furious insanity through conflict and irrational violence, ultimately creating war…- war meaning, everybody fighting against his own misconceptions…man fighting against his and others´ false ideas.

So yes, that´s the key question:

Are we dying to live, or living to die?

With other words, are we going to stubbornly stick to these our obsolete and death-bringing Ideas and destroy the whole planet, or do we have now the awareness of the prompting necessity to renounce and let go of this calamitous hubris?

Man of today – a shameless and infantile narcissist

Jack Saunsea:
“If we do not stop to see through our thoughts (thoughts of course are also words, most of the time) then it is like we are talking to ourselves non-stop and never take the time to listen to what the world around us is saying.”

Me:
Truth of the matter is that the “modern” man takes Thought and Idea for life,
to such a degree that life itself becomes a constant threat to keep away from.

Thus the ceaseless thinking and talking, this non-stop inner noise, makes
impossible a true and unmediated contact with the living, to the extent that
everything has become fake…Nothing feels real anymore.

Such a curse: life is not life, life is what I think it is…– such shamless and infantile narcissism.

He sees nothing, he hears nothing. He is not even aware that he is on the verge of ruining himself.

His ideas are “alive” while he – the real man – is dead.

Instead of fully living the moment, we turn it into memory as we go

She:
For what’s the use of holding on to our memories if we can’t make new ones?

Me:
Why should we make new memories?…

She:
Why?… This is how we go on in life: by living it; creating new memories as we go.

Me:
You see…there is the heart of the matter: creating new memories as we go,
do we really live life?…- or we are constantly experiencing a mere projection
of what we think it´s life and living…?

WHY DO WE HAVE THE URGE OF CREATING NEW MEMORIES?

Let´s ponder:

For most of us, NOW doesn´t really exist…- as this very moment is mostly the outcome of other memories – successes, failures, deceit and traumas, unfulfilled hopes, etc; and that being so, we invariably add the memories of this un-lived moment on top of those earlier memories, becoming more and more petrified, insensitive and invulnerable to whatever is new and imponderable – Life…

Indeed, we end up fighting against Life, this present moment becoming an irreversible threat. Hence we constantly empower and reinforce our very conditioning – which perpetuates itself through – what other, than?… – memory.

If we objectively and dispassionately understand this insidious mechanism, we start considering the very nature of our Conditioning.

Seriously following this pursuit with an unbiased mind, you will find that memory derives directly from Fear – which is, searching for inner and outer security, protection of the false identity; after all, memory is the main element which isolates us from “the other”…

Again, memory prevents us from plenary living this moment, from being open to Life, now….

Once we earnestly explore the nature of Memory as the core of our conditioning, we have the chance of being free and alive…
