Is suffering eventually about self-infliction?

I really felt his unrest…He was visibly suffering – caught in angst and unease. I made my best to come through to him, in simple and obvious words. Despite my sympathy and benevolence, he could not hear me. Or didn´t want to….

Can we learn from others´ mistakes?

There are obvious issues there. She suffers…yet despite her claiming differently, she’s afraid to let go of what’s hurting her. She maintains and constantly empowers the trauma by compulsive and relentless verbosity.

She reiterates the same scenario. She talks ceaselessly. Not a moment of silence.

Unless you let go of word-clinging, allowing a new space be created within, you’ll never have a chance to heal your pain.

In few poignant words…

Suffering is actually Life telling you that
you are cut off from its grand totality.

Human nature

They turn everything into distance, into an unreachable object of desire, in order to continue their agonizing dream of separation.

In plain English, Suffering is man´s utmost Love.

Light Without Darkness

I don’t feel ‘darkness’ exists basically. I feel many people use darkness as an excuse not to be responsible and be all they really are.

Don´t let yourself be fooled: Darkness doesn´t exist, YET IT´S VERY REAL…This world we inhabit is the fabric of Separation. Separation never happened, yet, here we are, as separated bodies…The few Enlightened ones, say all it´s a dream, which, of course it is…But WHAT THEY NEVER TELL YOU IS THIS:

We have all created this World, as an escape from Love, as an escape from Who We Truly Are. This very set up has taken millions – if not billions? – years to bring about. It is a world which seems “distinct” and “other” than God´s Real Version.

A long story short:

The Creator of this world, the Ego or The Demiurge is anything but easily dismissed as something you let go of, just like that…as the shallow New Age writers want us to believe. This Ego is incredibly uncanny, clever, captivating and intriguing yet at the same time ineffably vengeful, bitchy, mischievous, vindictive, yes, totally unforgiving…totally antagonistic to true Love…DIVINE LOVE is its highest menace, its highest nightmare. After all, it has made up a world which is supposed to compete with the True Creation of God, and through suffering, decay and death show God that he – the demiurge – is right…So its only agenda is to obfuscate God and our inherent Light. To keep you caught in Illusion.

You don´t fool around with this villain. It can easily shape-shift from one to many. It disposes over an incredible arsenal of “methods” to keep us confined in darkness. IT SIMPLY DOESN´T WANT US TO LIVE AND BE HAPPY. It is so deeply ingrained in our false being – after all, It is our creation – that he would do anything to prevent us from untangling ourselves from him. Enlightenment – which is to reconnect with pristine Love – is its supreme defeat. But again, enlightenment is such a rare “achievement” which requires an unwavering courage and commitment to confront this Fiddle Master. Look to this wretched world and you will see him at work. Bottom line: It is the one who has invented time, thought, suffering, sorrow, distance, punishment, disease, death. None of these are real…Yet he fiercely wants us to believe they are…After all he is A Mad Idea which popped up eons ago in God´s mind…It is a terrifying Nothing…

The cure of pain is in the pain

Paul sent me on Facebook this meaningful quote by Rumi, which felt like a great reminder this evening. Here is our dialogue:

– To acknowledge pain is to also acknowledge your aloneness. And that, if anything, is terribly challenging.The pain of loneliness and the loneliness of pain…So yes…the cure is both “in” the pain and loneliness, but also beyond…in togetherness… Or…?
– Ah yes, in UNITY with the divine…
– Participating in this dialogue now is alleviating the pain…it means that we are United…aren´t we…?
– Yes I’d like to think so.
– What happens if you cease thinking, at least in this very now?
– Then I realize what IS.
– And what is, is a shared Emotion…which is the cure. Fact is, that either we heal together, or continue to suffer separately…
– Brilliant.

Suffering is wrong perception

“A failure of understanding”

– David Fryer

Creation is the great redemption from suffering

 – Nietzsche

A sane man living in an insane society

A person who has not been completely alienated, who has remained sensitive and able to feel, who has not lost the sense of dignity, who is not yet “for sale”, who can still suffer over the suffering of others, who has not acquired fully the having mode of existence – briefly, a person who has remained a person and not become a thing – cannot help feeling lonely, powerless, isolated in present-day society. He cannot help doubting himself and his own convictions, if not his sanity. He cannot help suffering, even though he can experience moments of joy and clarity that are absent in the life of his “normal” contemporaries.

Not rarely will he suffer from neurosis that results from the situation of a sane man living in an insane society, rather than that of the more conventional neurosis of a sick man trying to adapt himself to a sick society. In the process of going further in his analysis, i.e. of growing to greater independence and productivity, his neurotic symptoms will cure themselves.

– Erich Fromm
