Listening to how the grass grows…

A death-worshipping society

Antonio:

“It is not that our institutions and centers of power are religious in nature that is problematic. It is that they belong to a variety of religion that is
death-worshiping and whose underlying aim is to destroy everything living.
And, that its aims are hidden from many of us and even from its practitioners.”

Me:
Really, I can see with greatest clarity this so insidious feature in human nature that no one else seems to heed, except you: this secret wish to die, this eery longing for individual and collective suicide. Try to tell them that…

It is blatantly obvious that this is the most dominant characteristic: humanity has become a bunch of death-worshippers. Nothing more or less. They do everything in order to choke life, to render every natural life expression impossible. I was born in Romania and lived under that demonic communist system for 18 years, before I defected to Sweden in 1981. But fact of the matter is that this satanic regime back in the ´80s,  was nothing compared to the difficulty of living in this today-world.

The pressure of this treacherous death is worse than all the coercive methods used in Communism. It´s everywhere. Before you knew that Ceausescu and his acolytes were the “bad guys”, nowadays everyone you meet is a potential enemy, because every man is his own and Life´s enemy. They are all methodically chasing anything alive…There is no place to go, nothing to do, you are literally strangled.

Our present Zeitgeist is a very sinister form of cannibalism. Humanity actually cannibalizing on its own body.

You and me see that…Who else wants to see…? No one…

Why do they so adamantly refuse any argument?…I think they all deep down know this, but would never admit facts…

I strongly recommend Antonio`s post:

A surreal hoax…

I just had my mother on the phone, she was kind of sad.
She had just returned from the burial of one of her lady friends` husband,
who had died from a sudden heart attack, just 56 years old.
The poor widow was devastated.

Some 10 minutes later, Tudor – a friend from Romania, was writing to me on
Yahoo Messenger. 

– I am rather upset, he said.
– Why is that…? I replied
– Well, he went on, you know my friend Irinel just had a menage a trois with
two gorgeous girls, and that bastard didn´t call me to partake, he just kept
the girls to himself…

That´s the way it goes: one dies, the other is devastated, another has a great
threesome, while the other is envious. Some are feasting, other mourn.

That´s the ongoing drama – some fuck, others fuck off.

Sometimes you kind of wonder if Life is not some kind of cosmic circus.

Life … is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”
as Mr. Shakespeare very well put it…

A surreal hoax, after all…which is not supposed to be taken all too seriously.

Christmas carols and an encounter with “Fred Flintstone”

Fred Flintstone

Earlier tonight I went to a concert of Christmas carols at the Romanian Athenaeum.
I was moved. The conductor and the orchestra managed to render these well-known melodies
as if they were played for the very first time. Enchanting.

Afterwards I was invited by the soloist to a great dinner at a fancy restaurant outside Bucharest.

In front of me at the table, there was this Romanian guy. He was tall and big,
a robust down-to-earth man, slightly reminding of Fred Flintstone.
He was enjoying his giant T-bone steak. 🙂

He emanated massive inner force – indeed, a very strong presence.
You could sense he was loaded. I kind of liked him. He was not the sort of fussy “nouveau riche”.
He spoke most naturally and with great ease about his trips to Africa in his private jet,
about having a Hungarian cook with him everywhere he went – what a blessing,
imagine to have a cook of your own… – about
having I don’t know how many residences in different parts of the world.
This kind of life-style seemed to him the most natural way of living.

The money I made is the secondary effect of having followed my bliss doing what I love.”

If I said this, you most likely wouldn’t believe me, as I am not a billionaire.
This unusual man was. Not only rich but generous too – he paid the bill
for everybody.

If not me, you may want to believe him as to the rightness of following your dream.

Romanian Athenaeum in Bucharest, Romania

Romanian Athenaeum

Who cares to listen…?

This is a fragment from an earlier post:

Once, travelling by train in Romania, I met a shepherd. A down to earth but very astute man.
He told me that he once was in the mountains with his sheep and dogs.
Two colleagues of his were there too with their flock. Out of the blue a roaring
helicopter noise came from the other side of the mountain.
It created such a panic among the sheep, so they started running berserk all over that mountain plateau.
ONE OF THEM WAS HEADING TOWARDS THE DANGEROUS CLIFFS,
AND EVENTUALLY THREW ITSELF IN THE PRECIPICE.

Instantly, all the other sheep were hysterically following the poor animal towards the abyss.
These three men and their dogs were desperately trying to prevent the flock from what
seemed an unstoppable disaster. They managed in the end to save just a one-third of the sheep.

TRYING TO SAVE THEMSELVES, MOST OF THOSE STUPID ANIMALS
WENT BLINDLY INTO SUDDEN DEATH.

The analogy is undoubtedly quite clear here, isn´t it…? It is exactly what happens in the human realm:
Millions of sightless people are hysterically heading towards a dire fate, and yet they don´t see it…

In fact, THEY REFUSE TO SEE IT.

I can´t pretend I am shepherd – there was one before me who called himself that -,
but if I am to save anyone, I think I HAVE TO LEARN TO BARK.

The dead cannot resurrect

We call ourselves modern, yet our outlook on life is terribly outdated and obtuse.

The only conviction I hold is that our beliefs and viewpoints must be under
constant questioning, and regularly and sanely contested – when it is required.
It is all about having a minimum of intelligence and common-sense.

We are aptly obliged to adapt to the current living conditions – that´s quite evident for
every lucid person.

I’ve always been a proponent of change. Now the question is:

If the Zeitgeist is diseased, indeed, if man and the whole present society is utterly insane, seemingly and irrevocably disturbed, WHAT DO YOU DO?…

If everybody is mad and considers right to be mad, uncritically merging into prevalent Stupidity and general Disease, bluntly and narrow-mindedly disregarding common sense and conspicuous evidence as to the real state of affairs, does it mean that I have to adapt too to this manifest folly, embracing and taking it for real? 

If everybody is a cowardly moron and considers right to be a moron, do I have to be one in order to fit in and be accepted?…

What do you do when millions of people, states and nations are head over heels heading to perdition, stubbornly refusing to see, dismissing obvious fact…?

I will illustrate my point with an uncommon story:

Once, travelling by train in Romania, I met a shepherd. A down to earth but very astute man. He told me that he once was in the mountains with his sheep and dogs. Two colleagues of his were there too with their flock. Out of the blue a roaring helicopter noise came from the other side of the mountain. It created such a panic among the sheep, so they started running berserk all over that mountain plateau.

ONE OF THEM WAS HEADING TOWARDS THE DANGEROUS CLIFFS, AND EVENTUALLY THREW ITSELF IN THE PRECIPICE.

Instantly, all the other sheep were hysterically following the poor animal towards the abyss!

The three men and their dogs were desperately trying to prevent the flock from what seemed an unstoppable disaster. They managed in the end to save just a one-third of the sheep. Imagine that:

TRYING TO SAVE THEMSELVES, MOST OF THOSE STUPID ANIMALS WENT BLINDLY INTO SUDDEN DEATH.

The analogy is undoubtedly quite clear here, isn´t it…? It is exactly what happens in the human realm:
Millions of people are hysterically heading towards a dire fate, and yet they don´t see it…

I may be a misfit but not a liar: Without intervention from God´s grace or higher powers,

Man is on the verge of total ruin. Psychologically speaking, humanity is dilapidated.
Healing doesn´t happen overnight. It takes generations. Nature doesn´t take sudden leaps.

I SEE IT ALL QUITE LUCIDLY and I am not “pessimistic” when I say this:

Average man is sick beyond salvation. No matter how much drugs you inflate in someone about to die, you come to the point where you comprehend that the best thing is to let him die. We may try, but we cannot resurrect the dead.

Maybe it is so, that humanity secretly wants to perish, otherwise more people would wake up, sincerely and decidedly change the course and deliberately choose another way. Besides inane redundancy and good-sounding but empty phrases, I can´t see any real signs pointing to that.

THE THING IS THAT EVEN THE SO-CALLED AWAKENED ARE ASLEEP.

What can I say as a final word for now…?

May God stand alongside with the vivid ones!

We are different, but nonetheless worthy of love…

Let us learn to appreciate our differences. Let us learn from each other, instead of forcing the other
resemble us. Enjoy the difference between the other and you.

Who are you to want to change the other…?
Why should the other be permitted to change you?
Why should I be like you, why should you be like me…?

Let´s learn to listen instead of fighting one another!
Let us accept that there is no one else like you and me. We are different, but nonetheless worthy of love…
