By Gabriel Raam.
*To be homeless is a state of mind; to be in exile, in an intermediate state, to be lonely. The longing for home is unending; for emotional home, spiritual home, a home to return to when it is stormy and cold outside. And there to rest, get comfort, get intimacy, get recharged, be protected and safe.
Such a home is the unconditional love of a close soul, soul mate.
*People may develop in what they do, they might even reach an excellence in it. But they, themselves, are they developed?
*Creativity is the sibling of the marriage between inspiration and order.
*Self-discipline is what one should use when his natural desire or motivation – don’t work.
*Self-discipline is the lowest boundary bellow which one should not allow himself to fall.
*Words are an imperfect tools – to catch intangible realty.
And this is all we have.
The problem is that words become for us the reality. But there is much more reality than what the words could catch.
And we think that words catch all reality and there is no other reality than what the words convey.
And this a mistake because reality is much more than what we meet through words.
But with this imperfect tool it is possible to reach: heights, depths and spaces that will echo the heights, depths and spaces -which exist outside our narrow area of perception; to be able to touch the mystery which is beyond words.
“Words, words, words.”
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
*Being able to look at yourself from the outside (and see yourself the way you are) – frees you from the attachment (identification) that glues you to you.
*The dominance of established religions, prevents the followers from finding their own unique way of becoming themselves.
*Destiny is not for everyone, everyone has got an existence, but destiny is for the few who all their life are driven by something, that for a long time they do not know what it is, until they might one day find it and from then on they would be on a mission.
*The greater is the destiny –the longer it takes to discover it.
*It is not true that only how we relate to ourselves effects our relations with others – it is more how we are being related with others that effects how we relate to ourselves.
We can best know ourselves through the relations with others.
We come to be mainly through others, by others and in the affinity and the space being created between us.
And true dialogue is the channel by which this affinity is being created.
*The soul is a helpless prisoner, chained hand and foot in the body, compelled to view reality not directly, but only through its prison bars, and wallowing in utter ignorance. Philosophy takes over the soul in this condition and encourages to collect and concentrate itself by itself.
*We need to train our lower faculties to work for us, otherwise we work for them.
*You could not eliminate getting emotionally hurt. What you can do is decrease identification (by looking at yourself from the outside) and block becoming personally involved.
*The art of writing fiction: novels and stories – is a degenerate form of writing the truth direct.
*The antithesis comes always as/in an explosion.
The thesis struggling slowly, step by step, going against the pull of the plant earth, and also the temptation from the sides to let go and get dispersed freely – in increasing now.
And everything which objects to this strengthening of the thesis – (which is the antithesis) gathers around, intensifying. Waiting for the smallest crack, of weakness, or self-doubt (or disagreement in a relationship) – and all hell breaks loose:
Something goes wrong, a whole achievement is being crushed in a moment, or a sudden fierce argument breaks out (that threatens to blow up the relationship) – all are forms of antithesis.
And then there is a danger that all the thesis would fall apart and would disintegrate completely.
And the test for the holder of the thesis is exactly that; would he, can he (as much as possible), be neutral and wistful about the attack itself, and cling with all his might to the essence of the thesis – until the explosion will cease. To save from what remains, the core, and with it to build the thesis again, as though the antithesis did not happen.
And to clear: no achievements, no harmony, no relationship – means no antithesis. The greater is the achievement, the greater would be the antithesis.
The antithesis does not happen if and when the thesis is wrong, on the contrary; it explodes only when there is a great advancement, (by deviation from a lower state of things – to a better and higher state of affairs).
Exceptional progressions calls for exceptional antitheses.
So, the paradox is that misfortune tends to happen exactly when succeeding to achieve a certain high point. And so the antithesis is in fact a confirmation for advancement which was being done.
Living with the antithesis; one should always be ready, prepared for the arriving of the antithesis. For that to be one must practice what could be called: mental projection, or doing an ‘architect’, which means imagining the next antithesis, not emotionally but mentally, consciously. The more such practices will be done – the more it will create an immune system that will meet the antithesis with ‘itself’ (like on antibiotics) and thus its effect will eliminate the shock to the unprepared system.
*Getting old without maturing emotionally – is common; the outside appearance and the body are deteriorated, while the emotions are still infantile. This lack of matching and affinity between both – means: living in an unbearable dissonance.
(The mark of an emotionally mature person is having wisdom).
*The quality and wellbeing of a relationship is not decided by its heights (the intensity of love and the closeness of the intimacy); but by its lows (how low could they descend to): how often and especially how fierce are the arguments: to what a degree they hurt each other emotionally. The lower it would descend to – so would the quality and wellbeing of the relationship – be damaged.
The safer, durable and stronger is the bottom line (the floor) – the stronger and healthier is the relationship.
*To be creative is to have a dialogue with the unknown.
*A state of mind: at any given time we are in a state of mind; and in it we could not do what is not endemic to this particular state of mind. And then it switches, and we find ourselves in another dynamic, another state. The rules have changed in the new state, and we can only behave now according to the pattern and rules of the new state of mind; What was hard in the previous state of mind is suddenly soft, what was hostile is now tolerant and loving, what was negative dynamic is now positive.
It is a different universe altogether.
And we don’t feel a thing, our manners and reactions have changed but we see it as it is the same. In order to comprehend the total difference between both – there is a need for a different kind of consciousness.
*If you have a low center of gravity, then you are stable. When you have a high center of gravity you are unstable; any vicious wind can push you down. For the higher you go – the easier it is to tip you over.
That is why the higher you go – the stronger should be your order, boundaries, standards and what you say no to. It counter balances you – from bellow.
*The strongest censorship in the life of two people living together – is the threshold of their emotional pain.
*A person with a high mission could not possibly conform to societies’ norms.
*An outsider must be higher or lower, the one thing he could not be – is average.
*We live all our life when death is so very near, any moment. If only we would know, we will not be any more just semi alive – we would be shocked into reality.
*Nationality, religious belief, race, or any other social belonging – is fictitious, invented by human. The only authentic, original belonging, is: to one’s individual quest, calling, destiny and self-actualization.
*The British attitude of coldness is too freezing for the soul, but the heat of the Middle East residents – is too boiling. Both are not good for her. What she is looking for is the gentle embrace of human warmth.
*Everything is personal, even in what seems to be the least personal like; social role, and even function and profession– especially there, we take everything personally. There, the personal demons are at play.
*The field of spirituality, now days, is a vague, non-defined- field, everything goes, anyone can teach, anyone can take the path, and any path leads straight to heaven…
Also, it is foggy, uncertain and confusing field; who can say who is spiritual and how spiritual one is? Who is genuine spiritual teacher and who is just full of good intentions? There is no measurement, no evaluation, you can be whoever you say you are, or whoever you say to yourself you are.
But with it the spiritual thirst and longing was never that urgent from one hand, and more popular, from the other.
Many seek it in their youth (wrong timing…) and forget it later on, or dilute it with less demanding and less promising – system, method or theory. They lost the fire.
*Disagreement turns into an argument when both take the disagreement – personally.
*The mark of an emotionally mature person is being able to disagree without taking it personally.
*One of the ways of a failed spiritual student – is to become a false spiritual teacher.
*What is most damaging in a person is the mixing of: high and low energies, of good intentions and bad intentions, of hurt emotions and good elevated feelings, of coarse and fine. What would happen if the lungs and the intestine would be mixed together? Also, one of the characteristics of a psychosis in the mixing of reality with invented reality, until the two become unrepeatable.
All this is causing a kind of inner pollution.
The dominance is in dissonance with submissiveness, rudeness is in dissonance with good manners, rudeness with politeness, generosity with stinginess.
And they are glued to each other by the personal force of identification.
This is still bearable, but the mixing can cause one pole to attack the other. And an inner conflict could then break out.
Unless there would be a separation between both – this life is going nowhere.
Unless a person makes a difference between what he will have and what he will say ‘no’ to – than his antithesis will enter through what he doesn’t say ‘no’ to – this is a self-cancelation formula.
The separation is done by a neutral view, through the intervention of an observer.
Without a higher agent no real change is possible in the lower kingdom.
I am amazed of how come couples come together. *
With it, It seems that about 90% of all people get together (married or become a couple) up till the age of 35 the most, mostly.
How is this miraculous and almost impossible mission being achieved?
For it is so difficult, and what is against this is so huge, that it is a wonderment.
For example, we know that singles are full of fears that prevents them from going to dates, and that during the date itself they are blocked and inhibited. Not to mention that the success rate of a blind date is about one to hundred. And yet, most people marry before indeed be that the forces at play in this are they are 30. It must be incredibly powerful, for the chances that during only few years one would find the only one, from no more than few dozens people they happened to come across his/her way – are scarce.
The possible answer to this question is made of two complementary features; one is social pressure, the other is genetic drive. But this are technical- intellectual, and are hardly to do with the being and real essence of things.
But the core truth in this is not what is there but what is missing… and I will explain:
The truth in this issue of mattings is that there is an incredible longing from our soul –for a soul mate, it is so powerful that it actually causing a soul pain, and the empty space of a loved one is responsible for a great emptiness in us and especially – Unbearable loneliness.
The pain is so unbearable that it could not be tolerated, (we couldn’t possibly wait until we are 35…). So being in emergency and with our back to the wall – we comprise and fall in love with whoever is available and is the closest to who we really want and need.
It is like in food; the bottom line here is that our choice of foods is – less because of its quality and attractiveness, and more because of the emergency of our hunger (when we are really hungry – we would eat almost anything…).
And so it is in choosing a partner; our loneliness and the cry of our soul – is what has the upper hand, and is responsible for the quick and extensive marriage, mainly, in the twenties.
We are used to think about love as being very selective (‘we don’t fall in love with everyone’…), but it is less selective or powerful – then our souls’ cry to unite with another soul.
*The thirst and longlining for communication is from very deep, it is not emotional, it comes from the soul. She love communication, and especially – dialog, without them she is closing upon herself, into her worst enemy; loneliness. She is isolated, in a sad prison (the prisoners being; energetic heat, aggression, pressure, antagonism, negative emotions and social norms).
For her it is: ‘communicate or die’.
*Spiritual searchers are often being mistaken in their journey; they think that they should be like the teacher; copy him. This is a mistake; to ‘arrive’ before you go through a whole a spiritual journey. The journey is ahead of them, a process, and for that they need to be themselves – authentic. Which means: being imperfect; doing mistakes, being stuck – and most important: accepting it
Only if one is facing where one is not – can he start the journey to where he aspires and ought to be.
*”i am ok”. Why is it so difficult to say this? We are so used to come with claims and demands to ourselves, that saying this (“I am ok”) might even sound to us as blasphemy.
The highest level in self-acceptance is to say this especially when “i am not ok”…
A prostitutions is the selling of personal assets (sexual) for money.
This definition puts a question mark on artists who sell their talent also for money.
This is not relating to students and skilled professionals who learn their professional knowledge and skills – but to inborn assets, (like sex).
We are kind of prostitutes; would sell our dear abilities for money.
*I prefer to stay with a (difficult) question rather that find a solution in the easy to reach and convenient – answer.
The antithesis visits again, and the pressure mounts. (It take time to know that it is it) and then a kind of relief is being spread in the complex; “it is only the antithesis”, meaning: “I am ok”, so the self-doubt and self-guilt can go out of the window.
*Love, ye love. One could not live without it.
A person by himself is less the one. In mutual love – they are a group.
*As a parent is desperately in love with his/her children – so is the creative writer and artist towards his recent creation.
Amazed and rejoicing, he stands in front of this new creature, which before -was not, and now – is. Be it an external creation (work of art) or an internal one (creating a higher self).
P.s. this phenomenon is to do with the old story of Pygmalion’:
*People are so involved with their life – that they don’t see reality.
* It is not our free choice whether to give credit to someone. Meeting someone who deserves it and not giving him the credit – is a kind of a sin against the value of being human.
*I am against the notion that education and upbringing – influence or even shape – our character.
All it can do is limit, or support – our natural, endemic, original nature.
*Instead of the old being full of wonderment in front of children, they should be full of wisdom – to shower it upon them.
*Authenticity is not in acting who you really are, but rather, in being whom you really are.
*We should let life come to, and through, us – but we are too full of ourselves.
People will accuse other people for nothing, just because they judge them about something completely different.
*Self-development comes always from the base of self-acceptance, never from self-criticism.
*The reversal point.
In getting to know someone, in meeting a creative art –
Somewhere up the road- hides the reversal point.
A hidden switch, responsible for the depth templates hiding within.
Flat and average – up to that point
And from the reversal point onwards – deep and full of meaning.
Till that point, apparently, there is nothing to hide
From that point on – the secret is out.
Above, is before the reversal, below is after the reversal;
From above – everything is ok, below repressions.
Above – the public relation version, below – the truth.
Above – the text, the words – below the subtext.
Above- loyal citizens, below their true nature.
Above- optimism, below – reality.
Above – alienation – below intimacy.
A real meeting begins only at the reversal point.
And then, and only then, the depth structure
Is revealed with all its greatness and glory.
Revealed, and with it the revelation.
*The difference between the thinking system and the consciousness system:
The thinking system is all the time on the background: dispersed, disjointed, wondering about, mostly by free association, (stealing us from us). Whereas the consciousness system is wide, expended, penetrating and clear, and it is happening upon us, only from time to time, as magic and a blessing.
The influence of the thinking system upon the consciousness system is in laying a fit foundation and source. (After all, the thinking system for the consciousness system is like the brain to mind, or the body for the soul, or the sentences in a book for the inspiration and creativity of the author).
The consciousness system is keeping the thinking system – fresh, agile, in full function and healthy. And the bottom line- the only agent that can bring order and peace to the thinking system – is the consciousness system.
(Mending and fixing the thinking system will not bring about consciousness development, but developed consciousness can mend and fix the thinking system).
And the bottom line is that the only agent that can bring order and peace to the thinking system – is the consciousness system.
(Mending and fixing the thinking system will not bring about consciousness development, but developed consciousness can mend and fix the thinking system).
*Alienation (and estrangement) from one person to the other, can not only hide the intimacy and friendship from the other, but he could actually perceive it as suffocating.
Alienation is a dead end, hardly, any intimacy or empathy in the world – would melt its brick wall blockage.
The state of estrangement between two human – is sign of the dying off of the last human warmth – cells.
*An actor and a musician gets all the applause, whereas the playwright and the composer – remain often out of the lime light. So it is in the expression and image of the individual, which gets all the attention and acclamation – when his true level, who he is, his being – remain unknown and overshadowed.
*Practicing spirituality (in one form or another) is not instead of having a life, but it is its development, (after having already a full vibrant life).
*The process of repression is there in order to survive, and the process of consciousness is in order to develop.
*Love, friendship and a dialogue – are life savers, to whoever wants to survive his life before he dies.
*Reaching old age without becoming wise is like diving into a gold mine and coming out with only dirt in the hands.
* You cannot take your experiences with you, but if you gather wisdom (from your experience) – it stays with you.
*’Wet’ emotions could not catch the fire of high consciousness.
*What God? Which God? Where?
Here, for sure there is no God, we live without him.
But what we do have, is all the way towards his level.
*Two of the most common spiritual practices (in the west) – are yoga and meditation.
The one problem with them is the need to stop the ongoing stream of life and living, in order to practice them.
While the greatest challenge in spiritual practices – is the existential approach; not to stop the ongoing stream of one’s life, but rather to be able to practice them during and in the midst of the ongoing of one’s life. That is the only way to integrate the practices into the living dynamic of one’s life.
*One of the most common concepts in new age groups and more than few spiritual and religious ways, is the concept of: ‘being good’, or ‘doing good’. The main idea behind it, is that if you choose to do and be good and refrain from doing bad – you would be more spiritual. This moral approach, actually causes the practitioner of spirituality to get stuck in a biased, one sided, approach. This will only encore him further in the same level in which he is based already. While the real effective way is to combine ‘being good’ and ‘being bad’ and this synergy of both opposing poles will actually cause him to be connected to the third pole; the neutral pole (or vector) which is located in the level above.
So, the only way to do spiritual work, is to move from being based in a low level – into a higher level, and again, this will only be done by full acceptance of both conflicting aspects of oneself. (Especially, accepting the less fortunate aspects of oneself).
*On: new knowledge:
From time to time a draft of new knowledge arrives. It could be in philosophy, physics, the arts, spirituality, and psychology etc.
If it is really completely new, at first it goes completely unnoticed and unrecognized, because the present culture does not have yet the infrastructure with which it can recognize and relate to this draft of new knowledge. It takes time until enough new knowledge gathers and sinks in, so it can become the infrastructure for itself. If our brain did not have an infrastructure for verbal languages – it could not relate or use written or spoken language, and wrote about this the philologist Noam Chomsky. (People do not have the infrastructure for body language, so it goes by unrecognized, and unrelated).
New knowledge is the way and procedure through which a new, fresh breath of life can revitalize the old, lifeless, stale, rigid, existing knowledge – in any particular field.
Real new knowledge always come from a higher level, this is what makes it new, otherwise, if coming from the same existing level – is not new at all, it is more of the same.
And when new knowledge comes into a lower level – it always turns existing knowledge – upside down.
A story: it is being told that they (researchers) showed to a member of a primitive tribe a picture of an airplane – “What do you see?” – They asked him, “nothing” said the man. He didn’t have the infrastructure with which to recognize the Machin…
Nostalgia is being in love with that which could not never happen again.
On the praise of scratching.
We know about self-cleaning, it is usually to do with water and soap.
This is cleaning the external layer of the skin. But this layer is coarse, thick – and the dirt is engraved in the external layer. In fact, washing it with soap and water is a shallow activity. It is not touching the deeper dirt. The outer layer is the thickest and coarsest. The deeper we go the thinner are the inner layers.
The outer layer is actually a dead layer of skin, thus its sensitivity and registration of finer influences such as changes in atmospheres and energies – is almost nonexistent.
So what we usually do with it is indeed keeping it clean, but it remains a dead barrier between us and the finer more delicate influences.
What we need to do is to remove, or at least make it thinner so it will not block higher and finer elements.
Coarse blockage calls for more aggressive means, and i refer to: scratching… Yes, scratching.
Meaning: to expose underneath the finer layer, which can register those gentle, fine and high influences.
With it, the outer layer has got a function; to block from injuries to enter into the body. But if there is no such danger – than the outer layer only stops movement in both directions; from the outside in (finer influences from the outside) and from the inside out (sweat, poisonous liquids and energies etc.).
And there is a third reason for the scratching; static electricity. We all close most of the time to electrical equipment, also in certain whether the air is charged with static electricity, and it sticks to the skin, and blocks the porosities of the skin. Part of it can be washed by water. Or being close to greenery, but there is static electricity that unless it is being scratched away, it will remain and continue to block the porosities of the skin.
Partial removal of this thick and coarse skin – will allow free movement of staff in both directions.
So, scratching; either with fingernails or by some sort of a brush, (or a rough glove in the shower).
The more important areas for scratching are the lower parts in the body. Whatever is below the waistline are the excreting organs, this includes the area of the feet. Scratching them will allow waste materials to get out of the body, and this could not happen if the parts below the waste remain thick and coarse.
The higher and finer are the energies that a person works on – the more he would feel the need to scratch…
Scratching does not have good public relations, it is considered as a coarse, primitive act, and therefore, scratching should only be done in complete privacy.
After a while of doing that, the person will develop sensitivity as to which organs needed to be scratched.
This subject seems strange and completely uncivilized and very unspiritual, but if we don’t do deep cleansing (by scratching), than we will be stuck with low energies inside and be blocked from registration of high and fine energies – from the outside.
*Until you come out of a state – you do not know that you were in it.
Where are you?
You are where your heart and soul wants to be.
*Self-doubts are like hungry pack of wolfs, in the dark night, sneaking in from all sides. All you need to do is light up the fire of consciousness.
*Wondering thoughts are stilling us from us.
*The way not to be stuck in a loop of negative thoughts – is to concentrates on something else, until the loop weakness and openness up.
* What is the pleasure people get out of fulfilling a role, a function, a profession, being part of a system, or an organization?
Well, they are afraid to be isolated again, down and out, not belonging to anyone, to anything, feeling so unnecessary, so unimportant.
We live in a world in which if you don’t have a specific role or function – than you are less than no one, less than nobody. (Who you are is not relevant, only if you have a role, and what kind?).
And they tend to run from this ‘nobody state’ into the best possible role, but compering to being isolated again, they would even accept the worst possible role…
*A real artist does not exist in his life as much as he exist in what he creates.
*What happens when you have a conflict between your inner voice and the public voice – which one wins?
To be neutral is to be true to who and what you are meant to be.
To be alive is to be connected to fresh and current forces and influences and energies.
*The human race was not supposed to be holly, but their longing for the holly is the low holly which would draw to itself the high holly.
One of the best ways to know if you are in a high enough level or state – is listening to Bach; if the music
does not enter to your soul and fills you up – then you are not in a high state.
*The greatest gift the higher can give to the lower is his absence, which causes the longing to join his presence.
*A real dialogue is a landing platform for higher understanding and entities.
(The participants are the two lower poles, positive and negative, while the entity is the neutral vector).
* What we don’t know is much greater then what we know, therefore we should be based in what we don’t know, rather than in what we know.
(Which means: coming from, and towards, questions, rather than answers).
*Don’t you respond, but allow something in you to respond, without you interfering.
*In interpersonal communication – any feedback is better than no feedback.
*And no response is also a response.
Pain comes from the soul, happiness comes from the emotions.
*The emotions should work on a low voltage, while the mind, and more so, consciousness – should work on a high voltage Without learned self-work, inner work – the situation is that the emotions work on high voltage and the mind and consciousness – on a low voltage.
*Giving the emotions full freedom increases their demand and weakens their inner strength.
*The reality that we meet is only a fable and a metaphor upon the real, underground, hidden – reality.
* From before our birth – our life and is predetermined.
We are the actors of a written script.
In our script – the only choices we have, is: how we act, and to what level we develop, (if at all).
*A Wise man is a one who fishes the fishes of intelligence out of the stream of life.
People identify with their nationality. The more they do so – the less can they actualize their own life and destiny.
*On any level there are two polarities; negative and positive, while the neutral vector is watching from the level above.
The neutral vector is always the friend of the negative vector, they operate and cooperates best when they are together.
On the other hand there could be no cooperation of any sort between the positive and neural vector. The neutral vector can only survive with the negative, there it gets, space a hug, and a supporting ground – from the ying vector. The positive (yang) vector is either fighting the negative vector and trying to conquer some land of him, or is working on much lower fire when the negative and neutral vectors – are celebrating together.
*To build oneself is the highest work of art, possible for man.
*In comparison to animals – we are higher by potential, but lower by: not fully actualizing this potential, and by not being authentic and true to who we are.
True, or new, or deep – creative work, needs time to reach full bloom and more time to be recognized.
*Intelligence is in learning to think about what is missing.
*Why self-compassion is so difficult and rare?
Well, simple; we are too paternalistic and not enough materialistic – towards ourselves. Example? We are too demanding, pushing and punishing – towards our self, and not enough: accepting, supporting, or and empathic- towards our self – when we fall or fail (and we fail and fall so often…).
*Spiritual quest and spiritual longing- is not just stemming from anyone, it is a matter of spiritual codes which are imprinted genetically in the person from before his birth.
Those are seeds that may flourish one day, or not…
For not all of the seeds are the same, they vary in potential and power. Only the most potent and charged seeds might reach flourishing and fruition.
*Without a loving partner that can save you (from your downfalls), you will be going nowhere, for sure.
What you learn mechanically (just by living) –is in no compression to what you can learn consciously.
*Truth could be received through the high end or the low end. If it is being received by the high end- it will be received as ordering, clarifying and upgrading. From the low end it will be received as crushing and downgrading.
What decides which end will receive the truth?
Well, simply, it is the level of the recipient.
I want to be a link in the chain of those who have been before and were longing and working towards the unattainable.
*Emotional maturity in relationship is to experience the other as he is, (from his viewpoint) – and not according to the pleasure or pain he is can cause us.
The opposite is also true; emotional infancy is to experience the other according to the pleasure or pain that he is causing us.
*Consciousness without humanity and human warmth is to be like a Nazi.
A country is not something to love (to be a patriot), one can love a woman, a man, their child, a close friend, but a country? This is not love, it is to find solace and comfort – when belonging to the largest body of people, and when you are completely identified with the national entity of your homeland – you are forgetting and giving up your own personal right for quest of your own – for being authentic and fulfilling ones destiny, calling and self-actualization.
The more powerful is the state of consciousness of someone – the greater should be the order and organization in one’s life.
Together they give rise to a blessed creativity.
*The thing which accompanies a person’s major crises – is the wiping out of all which was thought be important and vital in him so far. And then, the person feels naked, almost a nothing; a desert. But then there is one thing he does find, deep in him, and it is his essence (which is the only thing that survived and could not be wiped out by any crisis). And now –that the person is again connected to his core, to his essence, to who he really is, at base and root – he can draw now out of it the strength, drive and mission – to go on.
*We are falling in love in those that we are attracted too.
It is a shame that it is not the other way around; that we become attracted to those we are in love with.
*Intelligence comes by thinking for yourself. In order to do so you must be based in questions, and in order to do so you must be moved by intense and unending longing for: the mysterious, for the hidden, the unknown.
*People talk as though they know. If they will talk as though they don’t know – the knowing will come.
*From the outside – being neutral and being objective – look almost the same. But there is a great difference: being neutral is usually coming together with human warmth and support, while being objective is usually accompanied by alienation, distance and cold approach.
Each time you fall into a ditch of a crisis (the one that leaves in you nothing alive) – you sink until you reach the bottom, where you touch your soul and she touches you, for you emerge out different; softer, rounder, more human, more Ying.
Actors and performers are getting prizes and awards for playing other characters. Why does no one gets an award for acting and living who they really are?
*The soul is a lower center of gravity, the consciousness is a higher center of gravity, but we gave rise to the ego that became to be the operative center of gravity.
*It is possible to transform emotional pain into consciousness understanding (by a combination of creativity and inner-work), but providing you have some emotional maturity – already.
*Because society and culture are removed from their center of gravity – those who are on its margins (outsiders and H.S.P.) – becomes the center, the living heart – which ejects fresh blood into the whole system.
Once one meets his/her true match (in love) – he/she would jump one level up and even more.
*Highly sensitive people need to be loved unconditionally and totally, for if they won’t – they surly would suffer from vulnerable and unprotected emotions.
The advantage of being a true (conscious), philosophical creature, is the creative ability of transforming his pains, of existence, into a philosophical concepts.
*Love and dogs.
We love dogs and dogs love us. So far so good. But it is not so simple; we had a terrible thing happened to us, human; we forgot to love unconditionally. Personal interests and foreign calculations are contaminating our love. The ego has entered into the temple of love, and so it lost its purity and totality.
For example; if someone is in love with us, and we don’t feel the same – we tend to take for granted their love, it as though their love to us (without us loving back) devaluates their value in our eyes. This is foreign calculations, for we should be so lucky to deserve someone to love us, but we don’t appreciate them more for it, we appreciate them less, and this just to show how contaminated is our attitude towards love.
We see dog’s love and with it we should feel ashamed in the face of such egoless and totally generous love we experience with dogs. But this shamefulness does not happen, we are too busy consuming our dogs love which is totally unconditioned by how we treat them, it is pure, total and absolutely loyal and
Do they teach us about true love? The answer is no. We remain in our ego love, suffer the ego love of our partner, but the need and longing for pure love is only getting stronger and painful, so in its absence we raise dogs….
*Being good and being bad, are both degeneration of being high.
*It is amazing; knowledge everywhere, and no understanding.
* I prefer living in wakefulness –rather than living in sleep, as much as i prefer being an adult emotionally, over being emotionally infantile. Having a knowing (intelligence) over living for living sake, being authentic over wearing a mask, listening to my inner voice over the public voice, and being developed over being underdeveloped.
*One of the more deceiving words, now days, is: news. We have them constantly, in television, Radio, internet and newspapers. All those ‘news’ are a recycling of what has happened and while believing that now we are ‘in the picture’, it is actually giving us dreams within us being fast asleep. Real news is what has not happened before, and it is new because it is coming from different dimension. Only this is ‘news’.
*Everything is a symbol and a metaphor for something else, beyond itself.
The symbol appears in the known, the meaning is in the unknown, (what is interesting, original and of value – is always in the unknown).
Without interpretation, the symbol remains a vague and one dimensional object, and the unknown remains a lost continent.
*It is much easier to get lost and be alone in a group – than by being by yourself.
*There are two kinds of feet’s balance: standing balance and walking balance. We don’t fall in both cases, but one balance is higher; for It has a goal and is a dynamic balance, (while the other, the standing – is a static balance); it is the goal which keeps us balanced in movement (when standing and we close our eyes – we lose our balance and fall, what keeps us balanced in standing is seeing around and according to it we balance ourselves, so we need an external object to focus on in order to be balanced). So, if we move forward in our life without having a goal, on which we can fix our mind and intention – we will fall, we fall inside, losing the energy and motivation that we had when we did have a goal. Also we, mainly walk when we have a goal, to reach to, (we hardly walk idly), and that’s what the feet are for.
Not many people are in movement, most are ‘standing’ in their life (normal, middle class, bourgeois; they are safe and secure). Only few are in movement, mostly towards a goal. Whether they are: artists, politicians, thinkers, prophets, writers, spiritual seekers, or anyone with a vision he is on the road to.
We can live our life with a goal that keeps us in a dynamic movement (towards it), and this goal will balance us in our movement towards it. Or have static life, without a goal, and the balance would come by contact and support from the social environment.
The greater or higher is the goal, the further away it is from us, and the longer is the road leading to it – so the more balanced we become in front of what threatens to throw us out of balance: accusations, refusals, heart aches, being hurt emotionally, abandonment, attacks, betrayal, self-doubt, self-guilt and more, they come on their own account, but they will not throw out of balance the one which is fixed in a high, powerful and distant, goal.
There isn’t a man or a woman that cannot be tempted, it is all deepened on the attractiveness, seductiveness and sensuality -of the temptation.
*We are much less religious (living in accordance with God), less spiritual (less dealing in self-work) – than those who have been before. It is enough to look at middle age paintings and middle age music – both are to do mostly with religious acts, or religious texts.
And what today? Well like a colored glass being thrown on the floor – all we are left with are small pieces of something which was beautiful and wholesome. To us it seems that almost every second person we meet is on some sort of spiritual path. But it is a front window spirituality, spirituality, popular spirituality that promises happiness and peace of mind, it is not a challenging spirituality, a hard work spirituality, but a spirituality which comes to please, and to be consumed.
Most of spiritual seekers of today will conform later on. Today, spirituality is in fashion, it is a dress and cover of spirituality, the core, essence and being, of spirituality, are what we need to reach, and work for.
We don’t think about our death, we don’t believe in it, life is stronger, even when approaching 90 the person is not preparing himself at all, life forever. It is here to stay.
Pushing our head deeper into the sands of cheerful living.
We are so alive that it will surely defeat death.
And we continue to deceive ourselves, that this issue is done and dealt with by us. It is behind us. And now back
to squeeze the sweet fruit of life even stronger.
To be creative is the most wonderful gift in the world.
You are fertilized by inspiration and give birth to a new fresh – creature. You look at it full of joy and disbelief at what just came out of you.
*People and experts – give us advices to improve our life, as though we have control of our life. But almost everything is happening to us, and we are quite passive in front of them.
But one thing we can do – go up a level in our inner work and self-maturing.
*We don’t appreciate enough the love of our parents, we take it for granted, for we think it is their duty. Wrong! We should be so lucky to be loved at all, even if it is our own parents…
And the only way to express this gratitude, is to love them back, with all our might.
Weakened or degenerated quality – give rise to multiple quantity.
This could be seen by the multiple quantity of knowledge everywhere, in our days – it is a sure sign for the degeneration of the high quality of wisdom.
As long as Bach’s music is doing it for me – I know that my soul is alive.
*The love story between us and dogs- is great, awesome love, from both sides, but there is a dark side; and this are the reasons that gave rise, from our side, for such amazing love. One is the lack of love in our daily dealings with people we meet, and the other reason is the love that we do experience (when it does happen…) -which is tainted, even contaminated, by ego and conflicting interests.
Whereas, dogs love is always there, and what is more, is that it is pure and totally unconditioned. But comparing to the state of
rarity and contamination of love in our daily love – our mutual loves story with dogs- is also a replacement and a sad reminder to our poor state of love with people with whom we interact.
*People hardly give to the other positive feedback (compassion, support and human warmth), because they think it is obvious, and they give to him/her, negative feedback (criticizem and blaming)- because they cannot contain it.
*A man is a candle; the wax is the body and all the maintenance system. The wick is the spine (the Sushumna – Nāḍī in Kundalini tantra) . The bit of the wick above the wax – is the head, and it should be on fire.
*There are people that when you share with them a certain bad situation you are in, then they give you an advice. But what we are not short of is: practical, technical -advices, what we are short of, are: human warmth, support, compassion and empathy.
*Love is essential! (Especially for those who are gentle, special and sensitive).
Without it there is too much pain in the emotions.
Like the lungs that breathe air so is our emotions towards love.
* The greatest problem about the distribution of the vast knowledge of today (ranging from the academia up to spirituality and new age groups) – is that it mainly addresses the intellect, and not the whole human.
And thus it is wasted completely.
*Anything which is being said, could be said with greater compassion and with more human warmth.
*People are hurt by truth, for they take it so personally. Truth, which is the most impersonal thing there is.
*Truth is on exile. Longing for its homeland: a high state of consciousness.
* The difference between mood swings and a level changes, is that moods operate on east west vector (sliding from good to bad, and back), while level changes accrues on the north south vector.(the north pole being the high end, while the south pole being the low end).
Mood swings happen from side to side (on the same level). While level changes happen from up to down, and from down to up.
Most people move on the horizontal plane, few are on the vertical plane.
The shift of the center of gravity from the horizontal line to the vertical one, is movement from being stuck in maintenance line, to the inner growth and development line.
To what a degree, the homeland of creative person influence the caliber and originality of his creation?
From a casual look at it, it seems that almost in every country there is such an artist, composer and thinker. But some countries produce a higher quality creative works.
For example; Germany; it is the homeland of composers such as Brahms, Bach, Buxtehude, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Shubert, Wagner, Telemann, Strauss, Hildegard of Bingen. And German thinkers: https://www.ranker.com/list/famous-philosophers-from-germany/reference.
*Most movements for change are failing eventually; the communists, the hippies, communes (the kibbutz), spiritual traditions, new political parties, equality between men and women, alternative movements, Anti-war movement ‘the greens’, the Arab spring, etc.
There is a clear reason why many movements languish and fade away:
Without personal development, no change on a larger scale is possible.
And the one thing almost no one will eventually do – is to personally develop. This is a stranded area; ‘anyone can teach it’, it is believed that ‘almost anyone can learn it’. Both are wrong. And the huge gap between the two, swallows many of the efforts to do personal development, despite it all.
If you have i high enough goal – most of what threatens to take away, will shrink to a midget size.
How do you know that a fresh, current and upgrading, cosmic influence is around? Simple; it always carries with it and is covered by, original, rebellious and new, knowledge.
Mentally ill people only become so, if they internalize the attack or stigma and turn it into a self-guilt.
Only when there is no choice – can a choice be made.
*The ultimate story of the outsider is “ugly duckling” By Hans Christian Henderson. He is uglier than the ducklings, but when he will grow up, oh, when he will grow up, than everyone would see that he is special; true and Nobel. But till then, till the internal maturing of the outsider- he suffers, receives stigma from the ducklings, while at the same time his inner beauty awaits his internal maturity. To come out and be himself.
When you show someone his reflection through the neutral vector, he can see it for the first time,( without identification with how far away it is from what he told himself).
When being a child we thought that everyone is having good time and good life, except us.
Then, if we grow up and mature –internally, we would see that their good time is mostly a self-conviction (internally) and a mask and facade (externally). And this understanding (if we began to think for ourselves) would eventually, decreases our self-guilt and self-doubt.
*The best thing a self-developing person can do, is move out of the occupation of his center, in order to allow a higher influences to pass through.
*The last thing that one should do, is come to a personally involved (p.i.) person and tell him, and show him, that he is p.i.- he will never forgive you.
When he gets p.i. about their p.i. – This is already, a radioactive p.i.
*The main difference between our love and mother’s love is purity; our love is not pure, it is its impurities which kill it, and it is the impurities which are the residue which is left after love had gone.
Why when love ends, it leaves behind either alienation or even hostility? Why when love ends it doesn’t leave behind good feelings and friendship (for the sake of what was).
The only conclusion must be, that those negative impurities and conditions – poison and even, kill the love.
We hardly know what pure love is.
Children’s love is impure comparatively, because it is with the needing ego.
But romantic love has got the most impurities (such as: arguments, possession, jealousy, betrayal, etc.).
Why is that?
There could be only one answer; we are not mature enough (emotionally) to experience pure love.
Infantile love is not love but dependence and consumtion.
It is easy to think that we are born with pure love, and later it gets contaminated, but it is the other way around; it is impure to begin with, for it is the ego and immature emotions – which rule.
And in order to love purely and unconditionally, we need to evacuate the impurities.
Mothers has got it genetically, they are conditions for pure love, it is not them, it is their hormones. With us, in romantic love, it is much more difficult, we get it raw, and the center of gravity, is still us and our ego, and not the partner.
There is no other way around it; we need to grow up, after massive cleaning, in order to arrive at unconditioned love.
Without cleaning the impurities and maturing emotionally – our love would remain like a diamond before polish, very different from its shine and brilliance – after the polish.
Our love is an invitation for self-work, and not for consuming its ‘anti loneliness’ quality.
Almost no one is willing to do self-work in order to arrive at pure love, we insist to sweep the cream of the cake, we believe it is our right to enjoy it, and the idea that now that we are in love, we can begin to self-work – is foreign and unacceptable by most of us.
The best way to do it right is to self-develop together, hand in hand, knowing about our limitations, putting up with it and try not to take it personally, but to support support and more support – until we both grow up enough, above the level of our infantile and egocentric love.
(If one partner has developed and matured, while the other partner remains in a raw state – than the emotionally mature partner will become a drain pipe for the other’s impurities).
*No spiritual teaching or religion – should take away from the individual the freedom to think for himself.
*On pure love, part 2
Death among coupes – happens, it is a part of life, and many dead people were married when they died.
Usually, after year or two or even three, the widow is looking for a replacement. We, as society, accept this and even encourages the widow to find a new partner.
But, this phenomena has few question marks about it.
And first; how come? Why aren’t they faithful to the deceased, as when he/she was alive? The love did not diminish as a result of the death…
What allows the widow to be unfaithful to the deceased?
At the funeral they were broken, did the few years that passed healed so miraculously the broken heart? Until they feel free to replace their beloved partner, by no less love than what was directed towards the dead partner?
Well, love is not on the same level with everyone, it can appear on various levels, the lower is the physical, or practical and functional level. Then there is the emotional level. And the thing about this two levels is, that the love on those levels is not pure, the lower is the level of love, the more blockages and impurities are in it, the higher it is – the purer it is.
Pure love burns consistently and powerfully, it is an excellent fuel. Whereas, in the emotional or functional level of love, burns faintly, with high a low flames, alternating
Pure love is spiritual, and it is everlasting, with no connection to the absence of the partner. There are no conditions for pure love, even death. It is eternal (as long as the survivor is alive).
Pure love exists mostly between certain spiritual teachers and some of their students, it is very frequent amongst mothers to their children, but in romantic love – it is rare, unfortunately. Romantic love could be selfish and possessive, in other words: not pure, it might have conditions, arguments and more impurities.
This impurities pollute the romantic love and cause it to be non-pure.
And when the partner dies, what raises their head are the impediments. The impurities won over the love, which allow for the search for a new partner for love.
When a partner dies, in pure love, the pain will be too great, and especially the dissonance that the survivor of pure love feels; how can he loves someone else, when his/her heart is totally devoted to the one with whom there was pure love?
*Two people can unite for real, only through their developed higher parts (spiritual).
*Every new and original high influence, must haveוits own language, to describe, mediate and catch, this new influence.
The language which was used until now, is good for what has been, not for what is coming.
Any Influence is not visible, it is energy, thus it needs a dress to wrap around its contours, and so make it visible and accessible. And the dress are is the new language.
But without learning a new terminology, there would be no refreshing and revitalizing of the old paradigm, by the new high influence.
A high influences and forces – are communicating through new knowledge, and it is the new terminology which is the embodiment and entry gate into the new offered influence.
New knowledge is the first clock around a new influence. How do you know that a new influence is around? It is being announced by the forerunners of the new, unprecedented, upside down – knowledge.
Some examples: reversal point. Personal involvement. Higher and lower subconscious. Emotional and infantile – maturity.
Neutral vector. The observer. Sublimation of lower emotions.
Human warmth. Self-acceptance. Putting boundaries. 30 percent. 2 thirds and one third. Negative and positive dynamics. To contain both opposing poles. Feedback. Self-doubt and self-guilt. Practicing defense systems. Inner demons. Emotional dissonance. Emotional insecurity. The dominance of Social norms and the conformation to it. Entry point. To be spies (to live in one world, to act in another). Friendship. Objection. The antithesis. Quantum leap into consciousness level. Vertigo. Architect. Staying with questions rather than answers. Living with paradoxes. Authenticity. Being assertive. Three pulses of consciousness. Floor and ceiling. Atmosphere. Identification. In praise of the negative, female, yin – pole. In praise of ‘non doing’ and ignoring. In praise of dialogue. Diagonal vector (high and low) and the horizontal vector (good and bad). Highly sensitive persons. Outsiders and rebels. An esoteric school. New knowledge. Power struggle. Law of three. Pure love. Soul. Being a warrior. Emotional hurt. Being a scapegoat- a drain pipe. To be born twice. To experience the Click. Management of emotions. Blocking and pushing down. Observer checklist. Be, do, have. Giving space to another. Coarse and fine. To be born twice. True nobility. Bird cage. Having and facing one’s life. To be in a Bardo state. The void. Giving credit. Being charged.
*Competitive sports, such as: tennis, table tennis, football, handball, basketball, boxing, fencing, rugby, baseball, judo, car race, horse racing and many more – are a metaphor about how we feel with others: we have to be better than them. We compare: which one of us has done a better deal with his life?
If we wouldn’t have the competition drive in us, we will not bother to watch those competitive sports.
When we watch those sports, we do a projection of our personal drive – into the players.
sports is the arena on which we identify with the one of competitors, want him to win over the other, and this identification gives expression to the access competitiveness with which we live.
In fact there are no gentle competitive sports, for aggression is the fuel – there.
And for one to win, another must loose. (Or more than one, when it is a team).
Competitive games are actually a battle field, you come to defeat the other, (or the other team).
We don’t have compassion for the looser, only admiration for the winner. For one side to be the victor – the other must be humiliated, with no sympathy or empathy from the spectators.
The philosophy in this games is that In order to succeed you must be better than the other.
People go crazy after this sports. It is for rough and though people, not for the sensitive, the gentle and the fine.
What would happen to all this aggressive energies, if competitive sports would perish? Well, we don’t want to even really think about this possibility, it could be too difficult to bare.
If one has to compete or, rather to struggle or endeavor – it is with his self-actualization goal, and not with another human being.
*If one is highly sensitive person, or one with a spiritual inclination; simply, an outsider -then he needs to equalize the pressure from the outside (societies’ dominant consensus), by, at least, equal inner pressure (by having a high goal, personal mission, total dedication) Otherwise he become crushed under this bursting in of the outer pressure, which would result, in him, turning against himself: (self-guilt, self-doubt; ‘i am not ok’).
*We never ask someone close: what is alive in you now? Who are you? What is your life all about? What is your personal goal in life? I s there a direction in your life, and where is it leading to? How is your life so far? How satisfied or disappointed you are from your life? What are you hoping for? What is young and fresh in you and what is rigid and stiff? How far away (if at all) you are from how you want your life to be? What is still hidden in you and did not come out yet? What are you proud of in your life? What is the mark you give to yourself (out of 10) for being authentic? How much would you give yourself for self-respect (out of 10). What do you really want from your life?
We don’t ask. How would our life and our communication be if we would ask this questions? And the most important question: why don’t we ask, at least some of this questions?
*Everyone keep telling us: ‘live in the now’, ‘live in the present’.
But time is a continuous stream, a sequence. The challenge of living with time, is to live it as one ongoing, dynamic movement; past present and future, as one flow – a river.
And like a river – if disconnected from the fountain; the past, and disconnected from the sea; the future, than it will surely wither and die.
So, there are three levels to time, the lowest is 3 separate units, the mid-level is time as a process of becoming, and the highest level is time as a dynamic flow.
*Why is it that the most beautiful paintings are mainly of sad people (mainly of women)? And why sad music and sad poems are so beautiful? – It is because they coordinate us with our soul.
*While in communication, it’s rules have a priority over being yourself.
A process of decay might happen long before: a body, relationship, system, group or organization – collapse. It comes about after the inside is already quiet rotten…
From the outside, even one moment before the collapse – all looks fit and functioning, and then in one moment – it falls to pieces.
Why is it that a developed, connected and awake human – should suffer avoidance and even abandonment
Is it possible that any of the following professions: psychologists, psychiatrists – could do their work without having a higher or a developed consciousness?
Without it, they can stay in the known, while the causes and process of what appears in the life of their patients, or clients, is all in the unknown. And without a penetrating consciousness – the doors to the unknown of the client or patient – remain locked.
*The ruling language and vocabulary – are very dominant, so much so, that everyone must watch his language as well as the
Language of others, and if it is not in the exact line of what is expected, the person might simply be attacked.
For example, we know very well how a person with terminal illness – should talk and express how he meets his illness. For example, he must be positive, not to complain, and even show an unbeatable spirit towards his illness.
Or sex. People should not express complains about their sex life, and sex in general, it either is very satisfying (this is the general conception) or the person gets a treatment from a professional.
Or women lib. It is unacceptable to talk about women as victims, weak, gentle, supporting etc.
She should be addressed as capable, equal to man, and strong.
Or talking about kids and the experience of giving birth – it must be expressed that kids and family life is the most sacred aspect of one life, and the more successful he is – the more he must praise having children. No one should express openly any sort of resentment towards his kids.
Or if a grandparent is saying that he does not like to meet and play with his grandchildren – it would be mostly unacceptable).
Or the way we talk about psychologists and psychiatrists, we should never doubt the importance, vitality and effectiveness of their work, generally we should trust them.
Or the way we talk about fat or restarted people. Today we preach: “you are the best in exactly the way you are”.
Or the gays, today no one can speak against them in any way, and those who dare will be scolded by the listeners.
We are not free to think and express ideas which are not in the heart of the consensus.
Our language is strictly monitored by everyone.
So, no one speaks his mind, but obey to the general accepted norm of speech.
This makes our conversation to be very flat, one dimensional, and very phony, non-authentic and alienated and divorced from our true personal view and experience of life and the world.
This is what is so lacking in the most conventional format of the television; everyone there talks like everyone else, and no one like himself.
This censorship on our language is by no means fixed and permanent, it is subject to constant changes, and our ears learned which direction the wind is blowing now. About 10 years ago woman were hiding the sexual attacks upon them today in the ‘me too’ age the way we talk about sexual harassment – have changed dramatically.
And then when a regular average person is asked to describe what he feels or thinks – he has no words, for all the words has gone to portray the acceptable language norm. So, when he begins to talk he immediately switches to the collective language, even without noticing that he is doing this switch.
And again: everyone talks like everyone else, and no one talks like himself.
*There are two possible states one could be in; one is stretching from high to low (vertical plan), or stretching from feeling good to feeling bad (horizontal plan).
The vertical (north south vector) is sparsely populated, very few live there. The horizontal (east west vector) is densely populated.
In order to be on the vertical plan, one must move from the horizontal to the vertical.
So, there are, roughly, 2 kinds of charges; low charge and a high charge.
People on the horizontal plan are dealing in the maintenance system and thus are operating on a low charge. And people on the vertical plan are dealing in advancement, development and breaking new frontiers, and for that they need to be on a high charge.
So, people on the vertical plan are working on a high charge, and people on the horizontal plan work on a low charge. The low charge comes from ‘the battery’; the body system (up to the neck) itself, while the high charge comes from the outside, from the electricity of the universe.
But what happens if a person on the horizontal line meets, or even lives with, a person on vertical plan?
Well, it doesn’t go well at all. Putting a high charge into a low charge vessel – could cause it to blow up in the low charge vessel.
If the horizontal plan people do not move to the vertical plan – then they will either close themselves completely to the person on the vertical plan, or even worse; he could maybe become a drainpipe for the horizontal plan people; but mainly, he is being Ignored or attacked.
They (the horizontal people) have no idea why they act towards them in such a way, it simply happens to them, because the experience of having your wirings explode and cease to function, throws them into a void, emptiness. so they get lost, disorientated, and this is a very uncomfortable and even a terrible experience for them; and so the only thing they can do about this impossible state of being – is to remove themselves from the highly charged person, either physically, if they can, and if they cannot – they remove themselves communicatively; to have as little interaction with the highly charged person, as possible.
*Television is an excellent metaphor for our consciousness; it is flat, shallow, one dimensional, centering around sensations and stimulations, it is directed towards the lowest common denominator, seeking action and popularity.
Any attempt on T.V. to understand deeper, or wider or higher – something, – will fall flat on his face, for this medium is exactly fit for the lower, narrow and limited – consciousness level of the spectators, and not for anything deeper than watching a clip.
Most of the time our consciousness perception is so low – that all it could concentrate in, is on the square and flat medium – in the center of our saloon.
The moral of this is not to throw the T.V. set out, but rather to develop above the T.V. level of consciousness consumption.
Is it possible that any of the following professions: psychologists, psychiatrictrists – could do their work without having a higher or a devolved consciousness?
Without it, they can stay in the known, while the causes and process of what appears in the life of their patients, or clients, is all in the unknown. And without a penetrating consciousness – the doors to the unknown of the client or patient – remain locked.
*From Red to Blue.
If you want to develop to a high level of consciousness – you need to switch
your polarities in all of your maintenance levels. The polarity should switch
from masculine, positive, yang -based supporting structure – to a feminine,
negative, yin – based structure.
Yin: negative, female, night, passive, moon, intuitive, cold, soft.
Yang: positive, male, day, active, sun, logical, hot, hard.
The blood – instead of it being red, hot, exited, and dominant and working on high pressure and effort – should switch to a calm, slow, cool and blue mode. Then comes the level of the emotions – that ar usually hot, exieted, attacking and is spreading all over – it should switch to be ; cool, flowing, allowing, peacfull, calm, still and blue by nature.
And then comes the mind – that should move from being dispersed, disjointed, working on high stimulations, – to a focused, continuous and in a cool flow.
The: blue- Ying polarity, is full of empathy, gentleness, humanity, sensitivity, creativity, giving birth to new life, taking care, allowing space, and is open to be fertalized.
All three should have their center of gravity move from a masculine
center of gravity to a feminine one.
Only when, and if, this three shifs would be made, then the road to the
neutral vector is open. And only from the neutral vector can any connection to higher consciousness be made.
Is sex is overrated? And if yes, who would dare and say it out loud? What will be the response from others? For sex is considered as one of wonders of the world. And besides, it makes our life bearable…
And to say that in fact the many crowns above its head are false crowns, sounds to the majority almost as a blasphemy.
For if the great pleasure of sex will be taken from us, what would be left?
We think about it all day, and when we experience (the great gap between our fantasies and the reality of sex) disappointment with the next sexual encounter, we feel ashamed, guilty; ‘what is wrong with me’? Everyone seem so pleased with his sex life (although they don’t exactly speak about it, but this is the general impression. So who are we to doubt it?
Who will be the little boy that will scream that ‘the king is naked’?
*We would never agree to live in a half built house.
So how come we agree to live in a half built human being?
*The greater is the destiny – the greater would be the difficulties.
Small destiny calls for easy level difficulties.
But real great destinies are supposed to crack the glass ceiling of the: ‘little boxes’, bourgeois, good citizen – mentality,
And therefore one should be prepared that much will oppose it. It is quite a high price for high destiny.
*Many talented young, preforming, creative, artists and writers (and seekers after truth) – reach their peak, in comparatively young age.
And then at a later age – it diminishes and eventually, stops.
The reason being that much of the creative talent is being carried and flies on the wings of youth. Once they are out of the center of gravity of the youth spirit – they need to find a higher center of gravity, which would be created by their inner drive, mission and the urgency about the diminishment of time.
So, in order to remain a creative spirit, one needs to exchange the lower center of gravity of youth, for a mature center of gravity.
The first center, (and the talent of course) are given to them for free. The second center of gravity does not come by itself, it has to be built with hard work, relentless motivation, and the urgency of the approaching end.
The height of creative value is reached more by two centered being, rather than by a signal centered being.
The problem is that there are so few two centered creative beings and so many one centered creative ones…
Many people are afraid to belong to a genuine, realistic, and powerful spiritual group.
They are afraid because they have to abandon their known world and jump into the unknown.
It is a true transition.
Because what they know is no longer of use in the unknown, for the unknown has its strange, unfamiliar rules.
It is for real migrating to a different universe.
And there they are lost, uncertain.
They need to learn from the beginning, almost everything, and not only that, but when they learn the new language, they realize that they are actually required to do the opposite of what they are used to; In the previous, ruling universe – until they make their first steps in the new universe -they used what they know to hide and overshadow what they don’t know (despite the fact that what they don’t know -controls most of what happens in their known).
This is absurd. Suddenly they find themselves in a parallel universe…
In the parallel universe they need to let what they don’t know guide them in what they think they know and turn it upside down.
They feel in the new universe- insane, really afraid that they are going to go crazy, and so, they long with all of themselves to return to sanity. Where every little thing in their known world – gives them an anchor and certainty (and when people in the known world meet – they strengthen in each other the certainty about the known world in which they live).
The truth is that the unknown is actually – sane and what we do in the known world is what is insane. Any person with some sensitivity, intelligence and an independent mind- can see and witness this insanity, everywhere. But the majority of people that lives in the known – treat it as a realistic paradigm.
Why is it that many ex spiritual students and followers – become spiritual teachers?
Is it their high level of spiritual achievements which qualifies them to teach? Or it is their ego, meaning that after they did not reach enlightenment, or consciousness awakening – the next best thing for them is to get the credit for them from their students.
It is ego disguising itself to be on higher level. But it is empty teaching. For no one has got a c.t. scan of the true level of their spiritual development.
This is a despicable and misleading phenomenon; those who fail to reach a high, crystalized level – become teachers for people who wish to reach a high level of development, from an ego oriented pseudo spiritual teachers.
Many people are living in deceit.
Outside they appear much better than how they are in their private life.
We learn (not formally) that as long as you are not caught ‘red handed’, it is ok to be non-authentic, because what counts is your social persona, (and any way, no one is interested in the others inside).
There is strict separation between the inner and outer court.
It is true that many people do not have such a radical distance between what they show and what they are.
But it is also true especially for what are called: ‘public figures’. By the low of equalizing inner and outer -pressures, the greater is the public pressure upon their image- the more they will compensate inside to the opposite direction.
And the other way around; the more deviant and subject to his lower parts – is this ‘public figure’- the more his exterior will be polished and shining.
Why is that?
Why being authentic is only a cliché that we use publically and formally?
Why so many of us (especially high statues persons) learn in a non-formal way, that if you act as you are inside – you will be treated as naive, a sure failure in your life.
They (the public voice) don’t call this deceit, but having the ability to get along and even succeed, in life.
*We are born, grow up then make a family, we become well based in what we have been working for, but then, one day we die.
This is absurd, total absurd; to be born, built a life, only suddenly being turn away from his life, in order to disappear, forever.
There is no greater absurd, and this makes all in our life to be absurd.
For, in the face of it; what is the point of everything, if we live only in order to be destroyed?
Living in intimacy with this absurd should cause dread and great fear; (that’s why we ‘put our head in the send’, about this absurd).
Everything becomes small and insignificant in the face of this absurdity: to live and built a life in order to die, doesn’t make sense at all.
So if you live in absurd – be absurd yourself, act in an absurd way. It gives you freedom.
But people are looking for justice, happiness, and popularity -but in the face of the great absurd which is our life, all this loses it meaning and value.
This is morbid, some would say, ‘how can you live like that’?
Well there is only one way; to take upon yourself a mission and a goal which are greater than you and your life. For life for the sake of living has no meaning only absurd.
The best mission is to become creative, and create out of yourself something which wasn’t before.
You live in what you have created.
So, creativity could be an antidote to the absurd. And there is no higher creativity than the creativity of ourselves. And what a greater mission is there, if not to create oneself, you created something alive out of you. And this creativity gives true meaning. It is true that this does not evacuate the absurdity of life, but it could be bearable at least.
There is no higher creativity than the creation of ourselves.
We continue to live, for real, not in our physical children, but in our spiritual children, which is what we could create out of us, which must be higher and thus more meaningful than just being alive just because you already live.
The only real realistic way to live with the absurd, is by what we manage to create out of ourselves, which is higher than our daily life.
Creativity will make the absurd more possible to live with.
The existential approach is the only jumping board into high level. And this is because the existential approach puts you in a situation of no choice.
And we only take choice – when there is no choice. And the absurd is such a no choice situation.
*People are either addicted to workouts, or feel disappointed from not doing it.
But everywhere we are recommended to do it, and if we do, we get praise from wall to wall.
The body needs to be made to move not by the aggressive forces that put the body in an agony.
But we don’t have any compassion for our poor body, we feel self-satisfying if we force it to be in extreme effort.
We should not be anchored in our body, and tiring it until we sweat, and then we say to everyone how great it was.
It is such a social tyranny; that we feel guilty if we don’t do it.
But the truth of the matter is that our body doesn’t need all that.
Indeed we should be full of energy and agile, but from our higher departments, not the lower ones; for what they deal with is discharge and not in charge. And if we are located in the higher parts of our kingdom, guess what? We get charged and become full of energy that enters through what is developed in us.
And this is the real original state of the human; not to move forcefully and manually, with our body, but rather, to be changed electrically from what is out and above; Being just like a puppet on a string. ‘Strings’ of powerful electrical forces.
But first what needs to be done is shifting the center of gravity upwards, and then we will be supercharged in all levels of out complex; by the ‘gentle giant’ forces of creation forces, and then, at last, we are free from this common torture…
*On: the antithesis*
*The antithesis is a deadly enemy.
It comes exactly when all in the garden is flowering, and then it hits us with all its power, causing devastation and distraction.
But not less dangerous is that we are sure that it is our fault and that we deserve it, we are responsible for it. We are at fault.
But the truth is completely opposite: it arrives exactly when we are doing so well!
It is difficult to comprehend that we are so severely ‘punished’ not because we are so wronged, but exactly because we are so right…
The antithesis is a natural, reactive response to an intensifying thesis.
What we also don’t know, is that the damage being done to us by the antithesis, is not as distractive as what the we are doing to us, (because of the antithesis).
Once you recognize it for what it is: a strong confirmation of the direction you are going on – and only then we can stand the blow.
Knowing that it is only an antithesis, could prevent us from self-doubt and then, from self-distraction.
* The power of the bad to do bad is greater than the power of the good to do good.
Therefore, instead of increasing the good, we should block the bad.
The good is always there, the bad come to take away.
Then, bad thought, hurt feelings etc. – when blocked successfully – we again, bath in good.
Therefore, we should concentrate on blocking the bad, the good is always there.
It is like cleaning and washing the floor, we should not touch the clean areas, but deal in, and clean, only what is unclean. And then, the floor will return to its original shining cleanliness.
(Practiclly speaking: the best way to block – in by visualizing a thick wall between you and the bad influence, [until it works]).

*“All we need is love”. Yes, such a cliché.
Yet, this is a cliché which is so true.
We all need love, badly so, some (like highly sensitive persons) more than others.
But why is it so basic, so essential?
Well, for one, because it is so absent, we live in a loveless world. We live in a very cold, inhuman, alienated society.
Without love, the absence of it, is like a black hole, sucking into it, most, if not all, of the life and selfhood of the unloved person.
What would we not give for it, for without it the suffering and emotional pain- is too much.
With it, not all relationships are equipped with the only love which counts and is the true answer to the absence of love, and i mean: unconditioned love, any love which is not unconditioned is accompanied by much heartache.
One of the worst cry for love is living with someone you love but you are not loved back. This is a greatest loneliness, more than just being single. It is like a man dying from thirst next to a well with fresh cool water.
We are born with great loneliness, and therefore with a constant cry and demand for love, it is very much like our lungs cry for air, no difference.
We are in need for unconditioned love at any age, with the same desperateness and loneliness, just that those who hardly at all, get at least, some of it, are old people, they are thrown out of the train of love, searching for some love by playing with their grandchildren, but this is not a replacement (for their loneliness and absence of love), but they have no choice. They are stranded.
Why is the antagonism towards the unique and special person, especially from people who are the closest?
We are suspicious towards that which we don’t know, for it is out of our scope, and we learn to put on: the different, the stranger, and the outsider – the stigma that because he is not like us – he is dangerous and is a threat to all which usually gives us certainty. We are having an instinctive reflex of rejection towards what is not like us.
This boycott is towards outsiders and H.S.P. but especially it is towards people with presence that has a power to influence. People without such presence don’t get boycotted just they get less territorial space. The majority gets intimidated and uncomfortable by the presence of such people. It could shake their solid view of life.
This especially true for those individuals who by their self-development, and maybe by being already on a different level. They are not just different, they present and embody a different dimension, completely misunderstood.
Everything they say is challenge to their conventional safe thinking, it threaten the premise of their world. And if it is not doing that to them, than probably he is not a genuine upgraded and having presence – human being.
The wise and the developed person only provide them with truth, but because of the detiorated state of most human, the truth hurts and causes pain.
But the most frightening thing for them is being delivered to dimension that put their life upside down.
