What difference does it really make?

Writing or not writing…?

Sometimes it´s really painful to realize that whatever I write
makes no real difference.

Yet…

It is meaningless to write, but it is even more meaningless Not to write.

Meaning Is Implicit Relation

Ego can never have a genuine relation to anything really.

How can it, when practically, Ego´s essence is built on defense and attack?
It is – and defines itself through – limit.
It constantly raises and hides behind thick walls.

Subsequently, you can´t possibly find Meaning at an egotic level.

Just know:

WHERE EGO ENDS, TRUE RELATION STARTS.

Meaning is knowledge

Cornelius Agrippa says:

I think the question of what God is, is related to the question of who we are. That has to be
a practical question.
I think our lives are meaningless except to the extent that we give them meaning. That has to start on a
small-scale – in the moment-to-moment things we do and in each interaction with another human being and even to details like how we wash a cup or sweep a floor.

Me:

Life, real life, is Meaning felt each moment.

In that immediate “knowledge” every single detail makes sense – like seeping the floor or washing the coffee cup.

The same goes for human interaction. If there is reciprocal meaning, there will be communion too. Participation in Sense…

Unfortunately, the sum of people´s life – society today – feels devoid of meaning. And due to this absence of meaning in interpersonal connexion, – absence of both individual and collective relation to Self – we have this hollow age, which obviously cannot offer anything beyond its limited pragmatism.

Pragmatism without metaphysical connection leads inevitably to nihilism.

And there can never be any Sense in Naught…

About meaning and purpose

I will re-post this as it really makes sense:

Meaning, The Mirror of Now

What is this thing called Future?… It is hope, fear, expectation, doubt, uncertainty, frustration… In short, future is ideal and fear of ideal. Will it happen, will it not…?”, “what happens next?”, “what´s the next step, how shall I proceed with this or that?”

I won´t induce in philosophical speculation, I just wonder: What if future didn´t exist? What would happen if we took a healthy choice and eliminate “future” at least for a while…?

The consequence of this would be unimaginable: If there is no future there would be no ideal either. No ideal – no fear.

Yes, future means basically projection, doens´t it?…No future – no fear – no projection. What is projection? Projection means that we give ourselves away. We give our force away, our hopes, vitality, strength and fears to something uncertain basically.  What if we took home all projections, projecting them on this very moment…? For sure, we would retrieve ourselves in this very second…- we would start being real, being exactly how we are.

WE HAVE INVENTED THE FUTURE BECAUSE WE FEAR THIS MOMENT! Our fear to find out what or who we are, has become “future”. There is no future! Future is fear!

When we let go of the fear, future and projection, we begin to perceive Now in unfathomable ways – this present moment will start reveal a beauty, mystery and richness beyond measure. Every single thing will mean something. You will start having a right relation both to yourself and with things around you. You start perceiving YOUR INTRINSIC MEANING. Your immediate perception of your specific meaning is your greatest asset, your richness. You will find peace. Clarity. You will do less but achieve more.

Have you ever wondered why people are so greedy and poor inside always going around complaining?…Because their life usually is devoid of sense. They irretrievably look for meaning and fulfillment in the future… But Meaning never resides in the future…Only fear does…

We never live in the future, we live now, don´t we…? Only Now knows the secret of Our Meaning. Meaning means Fulfillment.

About the urgency of finding your specific meaning

Loss of meaning is the worst disease on the individual and collective basis.

Loss of meaning is worse than death.

Subsequently, to try to come to grips and uncover YOUR SPECIFIC MEANING AND PURPOSE is the most vital task you are facing.

Sense is not something you will find tomorrow or whenever, it is the urgency of this very moment. Doing something inertially without really knowing why, is totally inappropriate and inane; you cannot know what sanity and inner fulfillment are about, unless you come to terms with your personal call in this life.

You will never have Peace unless you fulfill the meaning and destination of your Now!

So instead of engaging in plenty of superfluous actions, try to find out what makes your heart sing, what makes you feel real, vibrant and alive!
