Sound Of The Underground

It's now very common to hear people say, "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... then a whine. "I find that offensive." It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. "I am offended by that." Well, so fucking what. - Stephen Fry

A nice looking woman, 50 years old, liked me on match.com. I liked her back and I sent her a message, then I read her profile and I was so disappointed. Here is, read it for yourself...

I live a balanced life, great job, great kids, great friends. I love cooking gourmet food, eating out, great wines, great music, travelling, living life to the fullest. I also love running.. it is when I feel the most free. I am proud to be able to run fast and run long. I am a combination of business, science and creative. I love alternative music, old and new and have a very youthful outlook on life, yet I am mature and grounded. I enjoy spending time at home making awesome dinners with great wine, sitting out on the deck, lots of candles (even on weeknights, ambiance is important). I attempt to get the most out of life. Love my firepit. - Her profile on match.com

She likes cooking at home as well as eating out, she likes old and new music, she is youthful, yet mature and grounded, she enjoys spending time at home, getting the most of life, she loves her fire-pit.

I am telling you, she wrote so many words saying absolutely nothing. I like a day as well as a night... so what does she actually like? She does not know it. She associates life with the images of perfection.

Do you lead a perfect life? 

Like this one above... perfect happiness in a perfect family with a plenty of sunshine and vegetables, with a perfect body doing even more perfect running in perfect green forest pursuing a wisdom to save the rest of humanity?

Are you living your life, waiting for the next moment to be even better than this one? Well...

In any given year so far, (2020 will be exceptional), 1 in 5 Canadians experiences a mental health problem. By the time Canadians reach 40 years of age, 1 in 2 has, or have had, a mental illness. The terms "mental illness" refer to depression, anxiety, delusions... general dissatisfaction and disappointment.

The problem of oooooooh

Did you know that only 25% of women are able to reach orgasm during sexual intercourse?

According to long-term studies, 50% of women have the orgasm once in a month, 20% once in a year, and 5% never have orgasms.

Can you imagine?

3 of 4 women can’t feel complete sexual pleasure and there is at least 1 of 4 who has never experienced an orgasm – even after decades of having sex.

No wonder that so many women over 40 have lost their desire for sex, have been emotionally abused and are fearful, or think that there is something wrong with them because they don’t feel the pleasure that they hear other women talk about.

The problem of orgasm is just a tip of the iceberg of modern living. I blame the orgasm problem to the fact that they take life a way too seriously.

Don't take life as something serious

Every day you are faced with traps that encourage you to take life seriously. You are faced with all kinds of frustrations, turning everyday situations into problems, constantly on the lookout for shit to complain about and worrying about a bunch of things that simply do not matter.

You are very sensitive, your ego is huge and you cannot tolerate simple truth. You get offended by rain, by look, gesture, words... especially words. "I am feeling offended" is an epidemic spreading across the world and the problem of sexuality is the consequence.

And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re a carrier of the disease. It’s a mental condition whereby your ego grows up to the point where everything offends you. Symptoms may include hurt feelings, indignation, irritability, disappointment, grumpiness and an all-around allergic reaction to anyone who says or does something you don’t like. In one word - seriousness.

You try, you think, you plan, you work, and then there is no achievement. The thing that you desire never happens, it never comes. If life was a static, fixed thing - not dynamic and flowing - then you could achieve what you wanted, but then life would be a death. Life is life because it is dynamic, changing. You cannot predict its course, it is unpredictable. It is dynamic and flowing - always flowing nowhere.

If you are serious, then you cannot flow. Then you are frozen inside; then you become just a dead stone. Then there are resistances around you. You cannot melt, you cannot change as life changes. You have a fixed pattern, a fixed shape, and because of that shape you will resist change. Then you are not flowing with life, you are struggling against it. Seriousness creates frozen-ness, and frozen-ness creates struggle. 

- Life is Not Serious, Osho

The grand cosmic joke is that there is nowhere to go and nothing to do. What you're having at this precise moment is all there is. That's it!
