Is man so disturbed as to unconsciously want his own doom…?

Monica Cassani:
The blatant disregard we have for our environment is the same disregard we show one another.

Me:
The disregard for the living and for one another, is eventually
the disregard man has for himself.

This is a very tricky question I have long been trying to come to terms with. Of course, nobody would ever admit this, harshly discarding it as nonsense, but it´s quite obvious:

By whatever unfathomable reason, man deeply despises himself.

Apart from inane rhetoric, they all refuse to see the blatant fact. Is man so utterly disturbed as to unconsciously want his own doom…? Or what is it after all…? What´s the reason behind this neurotic rejection of plain evidence?

I would be grateful for your opinion on this.

Sweden

Be civilized and shut up!

Here we don´t talk about essential stuff.

Don´t you dare joke about our taboos:

My repressed sexuality, my neurosis,
my frustrations, malice and inhibitions…

My fear is sacred.

My madness holy.

The greatest challenge

Really, life in today-world has become a living hell.

Chaos, stupidity, conflict at all levels, neurosis, inner and outer disorder, psychic discomfort, unspeakable inner turmoil, spiritual and material shortage, greed and stinginess, ugliness of the worst kind taken for beauty, mendacity, hypocrisy and pretense, hollowness, absence of sense.

What is worst, is the blatant absence of genuine relation, total disinterest for the other, indifference to “whatever is not mine”, indeed, MAN HAS BECOME TOTALLY AUTISTIC.

It is hopeless: whatever you do, you feel you cannot reach the other, nothing impresses, no matter how articulate, skilful or subtle you are.

What is conspicuous, is that Emotion has become taboo.

As Life is Emotion, it is obvious that MAN WANTS TO BE DEAD.

“Death is my virtue, I don´t want to feel, I want to be numb, left alone. If you interfere and dare make me feel, awake my conscience, I´ll severely punish you”, that´s the tacit message.

All this stuff that humanity is on the verge of great transformation is kindergarten story.
Unsubstantiated New Age gibberish for gullible fools.

Let´s face it: IT IS BAD.

Yet!

When you have the guts to dispassionately see and admit how things really are, when you lucidly grasp that Man is nowadays morally and spiritually bankrupt and insane, then and only then, you can be ready for A REAL CHANGE.

You realize that you are ready to give up any sense of man-made authority. That means that DESPITE the bankruptcy of this distressed age, you can see THROUGH and BEYOND.

To see “through and beyond” means to have the guts of facing and assuming this factual state, leaving behind “humanity” and accepting your loneliness, and establish A REAL RELATION TO INEFFABLE SELF. 

TO ONENESS.

Oneness is beyond belief, conformity or authority.
Oneness is your courage to give up your false humanity.

TO BE FREE IS TO SACRIFICE YOUR FALSITY!!

Yes, once you have established a veritable relation with “the Unutterable”,
YOU CAN BE HAPPY DESPITE THE WRETCHEDNESS OF THIS WORLD.

In this imperishable relation to Self, even if this world would fall apart, you would still remain unaffected, composed and well.

 

 

 

 

Says C. G. Jung

Modern man is blind to the fact that, with all his rationality and efficiency, he is possessed by powers beyond his control. The gods and demons have not disappeared at all, they have merely got new names. They keep him on the run with restlessness, vague apprehensions, psychological complications, an invincible need for pills, alcohol, tobacco, dietary and other hygienic systems–and above all, with an impressive array of neurosis.”

Life is not about me, or about you, It is about us

Life is not about me, about my neuroses, my issues, my goals, my fears, my foibles or my talent.

Life is not about you with your plans, cares, petty fears, shortcomings, career, interests or pursuits.

LIFE IS ABOUT US.

Only when we get the deepest sense of what “WE” implies, only then we are real, your foibles and your talents are mine too, your goals become my goals, we have to – once and for all – , understand that our interests and pursuits have to be in consonance with Life, with this vital “US”, and then and only then, we start having A REAL LIFE, where both you and I can blossom and thrive.

We are not each others shards, we are each others mirrors !

A break in Romania

So my friends,

Let me tell you that I am presently in Romania visiting my mother. I left Stockholm yesterday, needing a break from the limiting frustrating  evil conformity with its constant absence of life, which is the everyday menu in Sweden.

So here I am, in my natal childhood city – Ploiesti. I have to confess that I wanted to take a well deserved break from Mirrors of Encounters, but I just couldn’t keep these reflections away from being written down here.

This is an unfortunate valid truth everywhere, but something which you can flagrantly feel even more in this country:

Many people’s life is a frustrated constant struggle to survive. After so many years of reckless communism, they no longer know who they are. Due to a blatant lack of self-knowledge, they usually have no clarity, sense of order or understanding of the mechanics of Life. That’s the reason why, despite talent and ingenuity they fail mostly in whatever they enterprise. Failure has become some kind of virtue here.

It is evident – many are afraid to dream. ‘I am afraid to see how rich and irresistibly interesting life is.” Since many’s  knowledge of life is conditioned by the narrow frame of chaos and failure, they don’t trust that they can also succeed.

So they continue with what they know best: they distrust any new or healthy different way of looking at life, as if “different” doesn’t exist in the dictionary, they continue with the same mentality of suspicion and ill-founded fear,
all in all, due to a twisted and sick mentality, they are stuck in the obtuse identity of a loser.

A “loser” can never succeed, irrespective of the effort, hard work or ingenuity he puts in a project. It is evident that an unhealthy self-image, cannot be counteracted by any effort, talent or deliberateness.

Consequently, as long as Self Image is not going to be an individual and collective priority, most people’s life are going to remain a senseless struggle, a scary “shadow land”.
