A verdadeira crise que vivemos

"The crisis is a crisis in consciousness, a crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions.

And, considering what the world is now with all their misery conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, and so on, man is still as he was: is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive, and he has built a society along these lines.

What we are trying to, in all these discussions and talks here, is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are, but to understand it, to go into it, to examine it, give your heart and your mind and everything that you have to find out a way of living differently.

But that depends on you and not somebody else. Because in this there is no teacher, no pupil, there is no leader, there is no guru there is no master, no saviour. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil, you are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader.


And to understand, is to transform what is."

Jiddu Krishnamurti

O Meu Confessionário da Alma disse...


I would go even farther than that.

Everyone one's talking about the damn crisis, as you also speack about it in some of the amazing things you write; but let's be honest_ is there a true crisis? Or, in fact the issue of it all it's in the "we" _ The Human Speciem?
Aren't we the cause of all this caos, that creates more and more caos, and honestly looking at the bottom of it, we seem to like it, and enjoy it. Yes, there's to much confusion, stress, values are getting lost, day after day, we seem to not care about it, some close there eyes, other's give hands to whatever is "cool", some but less go agaisn't this rules, some speack out, others just go with "the whatever wave", but isn't the crisis in the heart of Human's. Isn't this more a crisis of humanity than economy? But what do we care more about? Economy. Isn't it ironic, that we are the ones that made the rules of it, and we got trapped in it, isn't that a funny way of playing us out ironicaly i believe someone, or something is laughing to hard with our loose, we lost control of our own plans. Didn't we? How many made payments with hypotetic money, money that it only exist on our minds? For some, yes this is a big crisis. But no one is wondering about the real crisis? This is more than a simple economy disturbance, this's the Man losing control of what He thought it could controling, after all we became the slave of our own system. Isn't that somehow ridiculus?
(am I being to hard, or ambiguous, or even mean?)
If we look back times, and we do not need to go to far from the present years, society it's the face and the reaction of the civilization, it's like our printed whises, dues, vows, laws, the "things" we crave, we made, we make. I remember long time ago, not understanding the sentence: "the youth makes the future", today as before, but with a deeper view of it I see it as: it's all about US to creat a new World, one that justice, honor, respect, equality, group, means something more than just the I, it's about US to teach but more important to show, the new generation how to treat others as equal as we all are.
For that we would have to join as one, from North to South, West to East, from all sides of the Home, we sometimes think it belongs to countries, politics, too us but not the other, so totally wrong, nothing is guaranteed and nothing is free (as you know).
So to end this outflow, what can we do about it? Maybe, if we only stop thinking as individual beings, and more in the group, how our actions can have an affect on others. Instead of creating to many mini worlds, we can creat a bigger, brighter, happier one, but for that we most drop our weapons, our barriers. Instead of discusting with war, and angry words that take no where, as we can see for our long History of existence, why can't we Human's use the heart, use the justice, tolerance, clearness, without having in mind how will I pass that or the other person next to me, why can't we be just more gentle, more Humanized?
And for the most, why aren't we able to acept the diferences in every single living be in the planet?
How I wish it could be possible, how I wish it could become sonner than I believe real...

It can be real. I know it...

ps: you are behaving to nice:-) But i'll try not to say it.
Keep the writing, it's as you see important.
