My current maxim. (8.11.2010)

The time of the other interpretation will begin, and no word will remain with the next, and every meaning will dissolve like clouds and come down like water. For all my fear I am like someone standing before something great, and I remember that it often used to be like in me, before I began to write.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, “The notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge”

As I understand the majority of human beings was and still is in a spiritual and mental cocoon. Metaphorically we are trapped in a high viscous tar out of mental cruelty, psychological strain, manipulation, misinformation, self-doubt, fear, warped ideals, etc. induced through humans.

If somebody is not able to both escape out of this spill and as well constantly cleanse himself, this very person unintentionally becomes a marionette of his scars and wounds, which pushes himself and other human beings into the tar again and again.

In my point of view there always were, there always are and there always will be individuals, who at least partly and temporarily are able to release or redeem themselves. These people can catch a glimpse of the mysterious truth.

“Although I am a typical loner in daily life, my consciousness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice keeps me from feeling isolated.
The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of the lofty structure of all there is.”
Albert Einstein, “Einsteins Credo”

Through all of the times many of these fortunate people knowingly or unconsciously sent out signs to the blinds, like lighthouses which are emitting light in order to aid to navigation for those who are lost. These people where artists, musicians, scientists, saints, etc. and of course also many common people who on the one hand created something which directly came out of their hearts and on the other hand who were aware that you can not force people to see. People can get a nudge by someone, they can be guided by hints, but it only can derive from an intrinsic force to get out of the tar. And everybody has to find his own way.

I think there are two major risks for people who are able to see out of the tar. The first one is, that some people think, their point of view is the only truth and that they have to force others to see their truth. This belief results for example in form of all –isms (e.g fundamentalism, nationalsocialism, capitalism). The other risk is, that people who can get a glimpse of a truth which is conflictive towards usual beliefs are forced to conform. This can for instance lead to insanity or boredom.

For certain fortunate people there is something which transcends all classifications of behaviour, and that is awareness; something which rises above the programming of the past, and that is spontaneity; and something that is more rewarding than games, and that is intimacy. But all three of these may be frightening and even perilous to the unprepared. Perhaps they are better off as they are, seeking their solutions in popular techniques of social action, such as "togetherness." This may mean that there is no hope for the human race, but there is hope for individual members of it.
Eric Berne, Games People Play - The psychology of human relationships

I do not think that the above answer of Eric Berne to his discoveries about the psychology of human relationship was right. I think those who are able to see have the responsibility to help others. They have to show them that there is something outside. They have to show courage even if they have to fight. They have to heal the wounded souls, even if they are getting hurt. They have to wake up sleeping and blind people.

He (the warrior) wakes up from the dream that the masses dream
he finally cleaned out all his old beliefs
he removes isolation and sets in its place
the vision that we are on a wave
because life is a stream that flows, we must let it flow
and the warrior says firmly that it's time to define you
who you are, where you're going, on which side do you stand
it's time that you understand that you're spinning on the wheel of time
we're starting a fight that most people battle in silence
only the result boils out of them
Song by “Die fantastischen Vier”, Krieger (Warrior), Free translation from German

As history shows the present way of thinking and the present ruling systems always try to remain the status of its vision. Changes only come out of persistent pressure. But there is hope. The first time in history people who can see outside of the tar can find each others trough a global network. They can share their thoughts, their experiences, their fights, their truths. And I think every soul has its own truth which must be shared to others.

If there is hope... it lies in the proles.
All rulers in all ages have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers.
Orson Welles, “1984”

So this brings me to my conclusion. It’s important for those -who are aware that they are (sometimes) able to glimpse out of the tar- to constantly heal and cleanse their soul and mind. Further more these people should send out signs to other people in order to create a silent coalition of the knowing. The knowing can heal each other by various ways. But everybody has to find his personal way to do this and to bring our earth out of the spill to a new step of evolution. The knowing have to wake up the majority of people from their sleep, so that they break out of the cocoon and show their truth to the world.

Let it grow.
Eric Clapton

I am a samurai who tries to fight against his cultural submission. I am always looking for people who want to share experiences, fights and truths. If you are interested drop me a line on the right side or send me a postcard to Don’t be afraid, you are not alone!

Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful
I had so many dreams, I had so many breakthroughs
But you, my love, were kind, but love has left you dreamless
The door to dreams was closed. Your park was real dreamless
Perhaps you're smiling now, smiling through this darkness
But all I had to give was the guilt for dreaming
We should be on by now,
We should be on by now
Yeah, time!

David Bowie, Time
