To Exist is to RESIST!

To Exist is to RESIST!
Pin It

If your desire to do something is complete, if your whole being is in it without seeking a result, without wanting to fulfil -which means without fear - then there is no hindrance.

It is only when your desire is incomplete, broken up: you want to do something and at the same time you are afraid to do it, or you half want to do something else.

Besides, can you ever fully realize your desires?


Society, which is the collective relationship between humans, does not want you to have a complete desire, because if you did you would be a nuisance, a danger to society.

You are only permitted to have respectable desires like ambition, or envy. Society is always watching to prevent you from completing an expression of your total being, and in its way a revolutionary force.

The action of being is entirely different from that of becoming. The becoming and thwarted desire fulfils the social contract with such force that it exposes how threatening the one being actually is.

So, if you are dull, don't try to be intelligent or clever, but understand what it is that is making you dull. Imitation, fear, copying somebody, following an example or an ideal. When you stop following, when fear is at bay, clarity and truth follow. Unless you are properly educated, unless you have this extraordinary confidence of innocence, you will be lost in mediocrity. 

You will put some letters after your name, you will be married, have children, and that will be the end of you.

So remember, most of us are frightened.

Your parents are frightened, your teachers, your governments and religions are frightened of you becoming a total individual, because they all want you to remain safely within the prison of environmental and cultural influences.

Does this mean you should embrace others, foreign they might seem, and embrace the weaknesses in yourself with the same fire that you take advantage of your strengths?

You bet it does, Resist Trump now!
