full moon

tags: , ,

Blurred full moon is rising above fifth level in new half-built construction I see from my windows, now halted for traditional construction vacations. This hot summer will soon be memory. Which love will accompany me to eternal return of autumn?

I don’t know. Sometimes, I even don’t know myself. Shadow is in black, yellow the surrounding.

Even Socrates knew himself that knew knowing nothing for sure… What I don’t know in myself maybe being or nothingness… I choose being, with the help of nothingness.

Consciousness is shade of nothingness preying on plain being, complicating the game of being there, existing. Many choices are details guided by some values. Those values are imposed first, on the individual by education. They can be changed and adopted again when rethinking tries to design an attitude, strategy or tactics.
Some say that thinking is already a failure. They act but without choosing, it seems, imposed values. Power is not at the end of a series of performed tasks. This is state of the world using this individual. Abstaining for action, at least for a while, is key to freedom of choice.
Assuming « own fate »,  dictated by place in society, roles in networks and ties in friendship and family is to renounce own will. Self definition still is possible? This is were the match « East meeting West » become irreconcilable : secured role in slavery against anarchic solitary freedom.

Contradictions can become fruitful but after the battle… Enrolled action is subjectively passive, abstaining to comply is ontologically active. Things are not often what they appear to be. To be fruitful, creative, revolt has to be taken with deep thinking. Not being there is more than being there… Man has the power to inhabit earth, or even the universe, like no thing.
Glancing at possibilities can not be achieved by a purely passive attitude. Active imagination is required to discover something to do, and discerning a way, like the path in the dark. Sitting in the dark, under the full moon, here is the moonshadow…

We are for a brief moment suspended in the void. Death is waiting, anyway. Let her to wait a while longer.

    Full of philosophical meanings, it let me recall a famous sentence of Hegel: What is rational is actual and what is actual is rational.

    Yes, this sentence is famous and illustrates very well the rationalist position. Hegelianism is a kind of idealism that emphasizes the mutual relation of real and rational. But there exist many things, forces, dimensions in the Sky and under, that are not object of any thinking.

    Ongoing adventure of Life, Divine in the Universe, expands continuously the scope of knowable, thinkable, feelable, attainable only by intuition. Hegelianism is a nice statue in the museum of past mind, a poor essay to master matter.

    Concepts, in words, can not change consciousness alone. Practice and ek-stasis (for me, Marx and Aurobindo), yes, yoga and meditation are necessary. Spiritual domain go beyond mental abilities.

    Yes, dear friend now, I admit this defeat. For I wanted to be your soul mate, and I tried, maybe too hard and I made mistakes. But I failed to prove to be or even I could be your soul mate, and I am still very sorry for that, because I loved you so much (you knew that). Now recovering, with a new love to inspire me, I see future is not wasted. If you accept, I will still need your advices, and I offer to you my help if you need, when you want. So long, nice woman. -J.

    And yes, also, I see your best, general advice is just over here: –yes, to master ourselves, first (for me, especially myself, yes..) very difficult and necessary to access to freedom domain. Nice words and great ideas are not enough, they need the craftsman to apply, implement those. This is main weakness, not only mine. But yes, still my main weakness, big one!
