The key to it all – Wonder

Aniketan K :
What else can be the ultimate source other than Self? How all these
manifestations to know thySelf? Wonder!

Me:
That´s it: Wonder.

You see, to be honest, I can take more inspiration from watching a sparrow, or from observing in great detail all the shades of light and shadow, than being together with people…It is sad, because true togetherness is a blessed thing…

Unfortunately, people in the West purposely lead a boring and terribly shallow
life, keeping at due distance anything which reminds them of a truly lived life

Life is unfathomable wonder, but humans simply discard this simple but overarching truth…

How that is possible, why they refuse to be moved and be alive is actually
the question I ponder on most

Who do we become in true relation to one another?

Richard and Paul were commenting and discussing about a vital topic, read their dialogue if you like: https://julienmatei.com/2012/09/29/so-sad-or-not/#comment-2597

Here is my answer to them.

You seem to do all right in your dialogue without my involvement. :) You maybe are interested to take over Mirrors of Encounters too. It would be quite fun I think ;;)

Anyway, let´s put like this – can anything exist in separateness at all?…Hence, who is this Julien Matei? Is Julien a separate entity? Is he an outcome of total relationless-ness? Or is he a product of different other societal factors, relations, events, people, frictions, dreams and projections?…

Again, is relationless-ness – let´s say, total isolation – a reality…? Is “I” a reality per se, or can it only exist in relation to everything there is?…

Let´s ponder: Where does an entity begin and where does it end?…

So who is Julien when he writes to Paul? Who is Paul when he connects in vivid dialogue with Richard?

Who is Richard when we interact in this uncommon way…? Who do we become, Paul, Julien and Richard – not necessary in this order – when we meet here in this discussion?

If we manage to authentically meet each other in these insights, we realize that the precise entity of Richard, Julien and Paul becomes rather irrelevant. Irrelevant in the sense that none of us remains the same, but each of us grow – hopefully!! – if we allow ourselves to be just little “irrelevant” for a change, and kind of get nourished by the energy of this dialogue we create together.
To grow is to dynamically give up boundaries,- the limited I-ness – and when we have the courage to “lose” ourselves, we come to the understanding that it is fear we let go of, and not our specific identity.

Only fear tries to make sure of its “fixed” identity. Fear tries to “emulate” or not emulate others in order to escape its paradoxical nature – that is, through escaping itself, Fear fiercely struggles to contain itself, to remain the same. Strange but true…Yes, Fear is isolation. I-ness is the derivative of isolation. Only fear can exist in perfect relationlessness. Its worst menace – I am sure you will find this strange – is authentic relation, cause in dependable relation Fear fears its disappearance…

Real Joy created out of togetherness knows no boundary…it explodes indiscriminately in all simultaneous spaces. Thus entity becomes entities, and entities entity…

In this immediacy, we come to the understanding that boundary means possession and in Joy all boundaries dissolve, as Joy cannot possess as there is nothing to possess…Joy is eternal space, reality beyond reality…

Can we see that we are unique but together…? Together but unique…:)

A word to Tom

Apart from the fact that you put words to my, so-called, blogging experience as well, I want to tell you that your writing has a vivid kind of immediate pragmatism, eloquent rhythmicity, poetical quality and insight, brightly reaching out, that makes a text really worth reading.

There are people who have something to say – and yet their writing lacks that kind of inner suppleness, without which the text conveys no vigour.

Rhythmical emphasis and snapping but caressing words…Vim…this is what makes a text worthwhile.
Personally, if I detect that this ineffable quality is missing from a text I don´t continue reading. The truth of the matter is that due to this reason I don´t read much anymore.

But I do enjoy reading you 🙂 I don´t know if you´ve ever pondered, but if you managed to write a novel in this meaningful tone of yours, it would be a winner.

You say:

“My work is intertwined now with theirs”… Indeed a real creator hears and gives expression to many voices around.
This is the difference between “serious” undertaking and shallowly pursuing a vapid idea.

In fact, the more we come out of the shell into real togetherness, the grander the inspiration and powerfull impact we´ll spread.
