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…

Can we put our insipid concepts behind us and be real?

What brings benefit at the end of the day?

This is the most vital question. We do things, write, say a lot of clever stuff but how many of our ideas or words become palpable reality, something that feeds and empowers us? What is required ultimately to make things come true?

If someone is hungry or thirsty, it has no relevance for that person if I depict with great skill an abundant dinner I attended to last night. Instead, if I really care, a loaf of bread or a glass of clear water would make the huge difference.

What is really required, what is the great force behind our undertakings which REALLY meets a real need for you or your fellow human being?

We are masters of depicting things which eventually have no impact, consequence or bearing in real life. We are too abstract. We are too caught in our personal story, to be able to see WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING, in short, more often than not, we find no real dialogue or vivid connection with one another so we can meet each other´s healthy needs.

Everyone is kind of living or dying in his own language.

We have become the victims of our inane, inorganic concepts, so we should think, talk, write less and ACT MORE. We need to be more “spirit-of-fact”,
indeed, more healthily pragmatic.

We don´t eat metaphors for dinner, do we? – even if metaphor has a vital importance. We need intensity behind our undertakings, we need to constantly question our intention.

Cause INTENTION IS THE KEY WORD. If the intention is clear and well-defined, the wishes are likely to materialize.

How can we find the intention which make things happen, which can bear fruit both for you and your fellow-man? How can we surpass the barriers of limited “I-ness”, and create something universally valid, something which feeds our souls?…Can we for once create something of consequence, something which bears…?

We cannot continue pretending that “abstract dinners” mean something, we can no longer consume phantoms and insipid concepts, it is ripe time to CREATE SOMETHING FOR REAL, SOMETHING WHICH QUENCHES OUR THIRST.
