Complete detachment is wrong!!!

 I Love You My Dear

Recently, I've been leading life consciously, practicing detachment and having in mind the impermanence of things. It is a big shit, I mean this detachment thing. I mean really, no attachment to anything - it just seems plain stupid.

With honest and straightforward simplicity, I am here to disappoint you and tell you that detachment is a big bullshit.

The Buddha first introduced detachment from the world to the world. The elite rulers and bankers love this message. If you do not engage with the world, if you retreat and turn away, but pay your taxes and bills, it allows them to go on stealing from you indefinitely. You’ve taken yourself out of the world. You are not part of the conscious resistance. That is, you totally ignore your real situation and do nothing about it.

Detachment isn’t spiritual in the slightest bit. It’s maintenance of the neo-liberal hegemony of New (and Old) World Order predators and their brain-washed pawns. Detachment is anti-life and it's under the guise of having some sort of bullshit spiritual practice of “mindfulness” to "de-stress" you from your own bullshit thinking and soul-crushing jobs they subject you to.

To be alive means to desire.

Life desire to continue on, preserve, and play... play.. and the performance is all that is important, nothing else. 

Happy Birthday Honey

This post isn't going to give you the big secret to life. Do you remember, you've been told since childhood that being a grown-up is awesome. And maybe now that you're an adult, you're still waiting for the awesome part. At least I do.

I'm 53 and I'm comfortable about it. I still feel on the inside very much like a teenage boy. The fact of the matter is I don't know how to grow up, and it seems like everyone around me already has.

Take, for example, the whole thing about career. People in my age seem to be running around a more or less successful career, they think they caught God's dick, took the the opportunity, become bosses, managers, senior analysts etc. ...

The part of success is unconscious living, I mean you are spending on average one to two hours a day commuting: car, train, bus... work in the office from eight until six: watching the clock, wishing the morning away so you could go to lunch, wishing the afternoon away so you could go home. And at home, you collapse on a couch watching shitty CNN until you start snoring. The weekends are actually worse because that's when everything that didn't get done during the week had to be done. You know, the kid's stuff.

The success is related to happiness, isn't it?, however, are you satisfied?

As I observe the world I see you and you are never happy, always busy, looking, preparing for the next big thing. I'm feeling your pain, because just like you, once I was going after so many things: my career and education, creative, personal and spiritual development, my relationships, health and wellness and detachment. Just like you I had some fun once in awhile!

But I stopped and I asked myself... What is this for? I stopped running. I don't give a shit for The Buddha's detachment. I am attached to life, to living. I have time, I have desire. You have a lot to do, it is often hard for you to know what to do first. But, if you spend most of your time in one area like your career, you are out of balance, you do not have time for anything else.

You are your own greatest enemy. You doubt, complicate life, cloud your mind with unimportant thoughts and negativity, you punish yourself, hate yourself and then feel sorry for yourself because the world is making your life a living hell. Fuck it, life is tough for everyone.

I booked the second part of my vacation. I am going to Punta Cana for 10 days yoga retreat. The retreat will be in 5 star, luxury, adult only resort. I am going alone and my plan is to get completely into shape ... 86 kg with flat stomach. It is my desire to be fit. I am leaving on August 15 and my intention is to do 2 yoga practices a day, do lots of swimming and visiting a gym in the morning... no drinking this time.
