A letter to Frederike

Isn´t it curious…?

You may think that something has intrinsic value, but if you don´t receive any response, you begin to doubt the quality of your work… So oftentimes we easily forget who we are, because – at least in my case – I haven´t received any real feed-back, due either to disinterest or sheer envy. Indeed, it may seem like a weakness, but there are times when we need someone else´s objective assessment to remind us Who We Truly Are.

That´s what happened because of you appreciating my composition.

Although I have been writing for three years here on Mirrors of Encounters, I for the first time put a piece of my music on this blog. It was maybe a little step, but such a great venture for me…after these years of harsh isolation.

I kind of broke the ice. Broke the narrow limits of my doubtful confinement. I no longer felt that hiding is an option, but showed to others my real Face. In effect, I showed my real face to myself above all, approving of and allowing the Real Me shine through as the musician and composer I am.

When being who you truly are, no longer hiding of yourself, there is no reason to feel insufficient or embarrassed. Or depressed…

Guilt is history when you approve of yourself. When you say an unreserved “Yes” to who you are, the way you are. Knowing who you are, wanting to be like someone else, or comparing yourself with anyone is out of the question. Something totally superfluous.

So collaterally we touch something very essential here:

Depression is basically guilt, it is hiding from ourselves, it is
self-denial, UNLIVED LIFE. Can you see this with no delay?

I take it again. Depression is unlived life. When we don’t live, we deny ourselves.

It is obvious: When you fully live, no longer hiding your true inner force, you become so unreservedly clear, so transparent so there are no left overs. Fear can arise only when we don´t fully engage in the action at hand – fear is thus a “left over”, an accumulated sum of fragmented actions.

So this is beyond any doubt:

Fear is fragmentation. This engrained way of living fragmentary, has created this enormous fear that we all know. Fragmentation creating fear, creating thought, creating time, creating depression.

When you accept, engage and are fully present in the Now expressing yourself pervasively, past and future become irrelevant, so there can be no Fear. Fear is bred by comparison – that is, thought creating time and distance -, so when there is no comparison, fear withers.

When Fear dissolves in wholesome action, there is Beauty, there is Expression there is Love.

And only in Love we thrive.

To be quiet…

…is not always good…So, folks, let´s break the silence!

Speak up, it is all about you

Really, there is no point pretending things are better than they are: we find ourselves in critical times. The ones who represent us, our so-called leaders have gone berserk. They have no clue to anything, they are totally out of touch with ongoing reality, a bunch of cowards totally exceeded by the present state of affairs.

Of course, they will tell you that everything is under control. Do we still want to buy their stupid lullabies, or is it about time to question things crassly, lucidly considering what is going on, taking due responsibility for what we see…?

Understand that there is no one “out there” to take care of you, but you. Can´t we once and for all stop behaving like kindergarten children and face life from a more mature standpoint? Do we care so little about ourselves to let us be fooled, lied to, controlled and manipulated in this flagrant manner?

Do you consent to be constantly humiliated, deprived of dignity and sense, dependent to live an absurd, meaningless and twisted existence, just because you are afraid to see WHO YOU ARE, afraid to realize your maturity and greatness…?

Aren´t you tired to swallow these ubiquitous lies about everything, just because you refuse to grow and rely on your common sense and true humanity?

Yes, I am aware that my words now feel maybe preposterous and misplaced, but I find no other more appropriate way to make my point:

Life is not a stupid story, you are not a random character in some daft scenario invented by some shrewd impostors. You are not here to entertain or be entertained in their mendacity. Get rid of all demeaning propaganda,  YOU ARE HERE TO LIVE – to flourish is your only obligation to yourself. But in order to be alive, you have to question both the collective fear and your own.  You can no longer flee your responsibility of being a Cosmic Creature, a partaker of a grand design, the builder of true destiny.

I tell you: there is nothing to lose, you can be threatened as long as you are afraid. Throw away your fear, BE YOURSELF AND SPEAK UP!!
