Life is not a love story. But it is a story about love

Can you walk away from love? 

Life is not a love story. But it is a story about love, and the power it has over us. The power to heal or destroy. And this is where the story ends...

Today, Friday 11th, November 2016, Leonard Cohen has found his miracle. He was waiting for that for quite some time, just like everyone of us... waiting for Godot.

We spend a great deal of effort maintaining the illusion of our lives. We work very hard to make it as solid as possible and never venture too close to the meaning of it. Otherwise we would see right through it and find ourselves looking into a mirage. Then we may see our life for what it really is... the great illusion.

We work very hard in this living dream. We take it so serious, we get counseling, take some medications, go to the movie, drink wine and talk about spirituality and other high things or we may go to shopping spree... In an insane world, being "normal self" means we have to be insane. And this is what we are.. we are totally fucked up.

There are so many contradiction in this world that it’s easy to be caught up by one. Suddenly we may not find values in the life we've created for ourselves. We feel waves of sadness, emptiness, meaninglessness, alienation and anxiety. We look around and wonder what we’re doing here. We suddenly don’t feel a connection to anything. Nothing gives us pleasure. There is nothing to strive for, nothing we can get or experience to fix it. The pointlessness of it all is so obvious.

When that happens, this world become a really confusing place. So where is the problem? Why this depression?

Our problems come from our idea that the world is true. 

We assume that if the world is true then we are also true. This self-importance is the main reason for the feelings of depression, sadness, emptiness and anxiety.

There is nothing true in this world. 

I am not a Buddhist but the impermanence is only permanent "thing" here. The meaning of everything is the meaning we give it. We are who we say we are, and our experience is what we say it is. Words. Growing, moving, progressing, evolving. Heart, Love, Peace, Bliss. Be nice and say you're sorry when you done wrong so your loving God won't cook your ass. We hope for transcendental bliss, cosmic consciousness, kundalini awakening, supreme love...

Take at easy!

Slowdown and stop running after all these nonsense? One day we will be forced to stop, the sun goes off and the mirage goes off. Don't say that you were unlucky, you did not reached the water... the water was never there.

No, life is not a love story. But it is a story about love. About those who give in to it, and the price they pay. And those who run away from it because they are afraid... because they do not believe they are worthy of it.
