Stop treating life like it’s purgatory. Where every moment you’re wait for bliss because you think you need to earn it. Where you keep your self trapped by your past because you’re not ready to move on. Live life in the present. In the state of mind where there is only existence. Where the thoughts of the past or the future are irreverent. Be here now and your liberation will be met by the rapture of life.
The love we practice is counterfeit. It is pretend. Like paper money with no value, we try making love with words but the truth never leaves our lips. We choke, strangle and cage with our so called love. Our love is selfish and insecure, we cannot let lovers be free. Like pets, we control and demand make believing we are loving but only the loveless need do such things. What love is that which does anything but constrict?
If you are truly in love there is nothing to do. If you are in love, every moment you see your lover their face will be new. You will hear your lover as if their voice were your own. You will feel them as if no space between you exists. If you are in love you will be so immersed with your lover you will forget your self and your lover will be free of your cage.
“We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses and I am the oppressor of the person I condemn, not his friend and fellow sufferer. I do not in the least mean to say that we must never pass judgment when we desire to help and improve, but if the doctor wishes to help a human being he must be able to accept him as he is, and he can do this in reality only when he has already seen and accepted himself as he is.
Perhaps this sounds very simple, but simple things are always the most difficult.”
- Carl Jung
Alienation. Separation. Isolation. We all experience and cannot escape it, whether we realize it or not. It is the state of affairs that attracts us to one another. Our great societal fetish is to be inside one another, physically and mentally. However, our mental penetration can never be confirmed and if confronted reveals our naive understanding. We will never “know” others. We will only know what we think of others and this is nothing like the truth. Knowing will never bridge the gap between the separate eyes of the universe.
What bridges the gap between us is our presence. When we are with each other we cannot see each other’s thoughts. Our identities are only pretend. Our pasts cannot be found and the future is not here. When we are here, all we truly are is presence. Being. This being connects us, it is shared. However, you may not be taking part in it. You may not be present. You may still be lost in your mind trying to know the other or trying to get the other to know you. Stop this. Be with them!
Sense them completely. Let the conversation be an excuse to completely lose your self in their eyes. Hear the subtly and emotional quality of their voice. Feel their presence in your reality and they will become part of you.
Become one with each other and you can be alone together.
There is enough religion. There are plenty of philosophers and there are too many intellectuals. Undoubtedly, they all come with their own flavor of arrogance. Now what we could really use is more sensualists! Not people who “think” they are sensualist but people who unconditionally embrace the sensation of our reality! Only then will we graduate from the institutions of our infant minds.

ENJOYING MY BAD MOOD!
We are much too interested in speaking rather than listening. We can’t help it. We hear someone speaking and immediately the inner dialogue gets in the way. The conditioned bias towards accepting or rejecting ideas. We wan’t to debate. We want to argue. Our instinct is not to embrace the guests in our reality. Our instinct is to put our ego between us and them. To protect us. What a missed opportunity. All we ended up connected with is our own perception. We connected with the nonexistent ego we projected onto the stranger. The secret is that to really connect with someone, you must be fully present. Without the filter of your ego. If you can learn to lose your “self” in the presence of others, you will learn to be completely with them.
