Listen, do, and let go…

– Your self-awareness must be exhausting, he gathered.
– Why do you think so? – I replied.
– By focusing on so many processes and thoughts of meanings to your life and experience, as well as actually living in the moment – with so much enveloping you at any time…it must be tiring.

Fact of the matter is that I no longer feel any tiredness.

In fact, everything is ineffably “easy”. Ease and easily delightful…

A weightless flow of sorts…

It has become so easy cause I don´t cling to anything I know. 

I look through whatever I have accomplished as if it´s done by someone else.
I write a text and immediately after, I let go of it. I totally disidentify from it.

When I am about to “know” or do something, Life gives me a sign…
Life kind of thinks inside of me, not “me”. Consequently everything has become 
an
effortless act. I only hear what´s beeing told within.

And I listen with care and willfully follow what´s being whispered. That´s the way
I go about with anything:

SIMPLY UNFOLDING.

Life is harsh to most people not because of the practical aspects, but because they are weighed down by their thoughts, by time, by fear…

Who is the observer and what is observed?

He asks:
Can the world exist outside the mind?

Can there really be objectivity?

Me:
Can the knife cut itself?

Can the eye see itself?

This world is the outcome of our mind. Mind existing as division.

Is the observer different from the observed?

What happens if there is no observer and nothing observed?

So in order to answer both your questions, we need to look in-depth at
the very nature of mind:

Can mind exist outside division?…

Who´s the subject and who the object?

Are subjectivity and objectivity ever separable, or intrinsically one…?

Distance or nearness?

Basically, that´s what most people do:
Spend their life in futile distance to themselves.

So I ask you:

Distance or nearness?…

Depersonalization – modern man´s curse

I will try to comment this text that Jane wrote:

“Sending a short note on Facebook, a smiley face is not the same as calling someone on the phone, hearing their voice, their laughter and sighs. What is happening is frightening. It is up to us to stop this fragmentation of our society.”

How on earth have we reached this point of horrid depersonalization? To depersonalize yourself is wanting to get rid of yourself, to substitute your humanity. Is it a frantic despicable shame we feel inside of us…? Is it some kind of guilt, remorse, angst and contempt for our human condition that we try to replace through artificial intelligence?

Why do we want to substitute ourselves? What is the reason behind our compulsiveness to project ourselves into something lifeless, something totally deprived of sensation, an idiotic machine…?

It seems to me that we are so full of guilt and bad conscience, that we can no longer endure and acknowledge our inner voice, trying desperately to silence and relinquish it, through vehemently suspending our morality.

Wanting to shun each other´s humanity, being ashamed of each other, we have created distance. It is the power of this distance and mutual resistance to one another, which is the reason behind all these monumentally stupid inventions like Facebook, all kinds of (anti) social networks and so forth…

It is this distance and shameless indifference to one another which is responsible for all these witless monstrosities.

If we don´t manage to retrieve our “lost” humanity, going through an individual and collective thorough  examination, analysing and confronting our human predicament, we will very soon be witnessing an unprecedented, most absurd hideous decay – the uprise of unimaginable chaos.

We are becoming robotic drones, as a friend said. Most people, she continued, have their head in the sand, appear apathetic, or in perhaps they are in some numb zone of sorts. I am appalled at the way in which humans ignore the pain and suffering of one another…

 I will end quoting Jim Sloman:

“The great network, successor to the internet, will itself become an adaptive complex system, one EVOLVING AT A FURIOUS RATE. When it “wakes up” we will not necessarily know that it happened; there is no way for us to know. And the great network will be alive-or already is – just as a beehive is alive. A rising consensus among researchers in artificial intelligence is that self – awareness itself may be an emergent property of a large distributed network–further, that this process of self-awareness arises in the very same way in the human mind”

Really, I ask you in all humility: IS THIS THE WORLD YOU WANT ?….

If not, we have to start immediately questioning our numbness – keeping the head in the sand is no longer a sustainable choice.
