Meli asking

“Where to fit into this world, Julien, where…?”

Me:
This sounds like a terrible platitude dear Meli…but really…You can only fit into yourself…Once you truly thoroughly understand that, “the Place”, the Hint, your Sense – the Why of You -, will be simply conveyed to you…

She:

Sounds very wise, thanks…

At the moment I’m just a bit desperate about all these neo-liberal changes and developments in politics, reading a book also on how capitalism changes our mind-set etc… It’s all about competition, the ego now…. And I feel people become more and more like that…. And then there are so many other inequalities, sexism, patriarchy in general etc. You know what I mean…. Conservative, stupid people all over… But maybe that’s also arrogant to say, I don’t know!…

Me:

What you say is the “right” survey of this present age, no doubt about that. There is a but…And the big But is that Everything existing is our creation. Knowingly or mostly unknowingly you have participated to the way things look like. Don´t try to analyze this thought though. You just  simply have to delve into Yourself, and find The Place, that unchanging place, which is beyond strife, competition, categories…Of course, if you never made the experience of that “inner” place, my words seem totally inappropriate…

See it like this: Look at your despair without trying to change it…Escape it. Judge it. Stay with the problem. Don´t try to find What, Where or Where to… To the extent it´s possible, just delve…

Linger a moment. To quote Matt Licata:

“Just love yourself enough to just…Stop…”

A dialogue today

I managed to write down this dialogue between a man and a woman in the subway today.

– Obviously, a man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.
– And when you love a woman what happens?
– Well, why don´t you see for yourself…?
– I wanted to know from you, since you made such a statement which seems pretty misogynistic.
– It is what I have experienced every single time. Whenever I really cared for a woman it
ended in calamity. It seems to me women claim to want to be loved, but the moment you
show them genuine sentiment hell is unleashed…- they can´t take it…They start manipulating and trying to dominate you.
They kind of lose interest in you at once if you show them real emotion…For the record, misogynist is the one who happens to bluntly express the naked truth about women.
– Hm, how you men deceive yourselves…
– Well yeah … what we usually refuse to see is called deception or imposture…
Whoever has the guts to call things by their real name, is either a fool or a misogynist.
