Spontaneous recognition is a wonderful thing. And if you go out into nature and are far away from the business of people, then you can surrender to this recognition and let it come and go spontaneously in your pulse. You are in a situation that supports inner awareness. You can’t lose it there.
If you leave nature, go to the city or simply among materialistic people, then a process of abrasion begins which, if you do not actively counteract it, leads to losing your inner knowing bit by bit. And the worry, the fear, the irritation, the dissatisfaction, the antipathy, the despair, the lack of perspective, the loneliness…. the death wish…, the suffering set in. Just as they are more or less anchored visibly or painted over in every modern human being.
In the present world, one cannot rely on spontaneous recognition. One cannot rely on it being perceptible in a light pulse sometimes more sometimes less, but always certain in one’s self. The abrasive materialistic tidal forces are too strong and will have turned the strongest rock into mud at some point.
In the materialistic world, only training helps. Train the spread of inner knowledge so that consciousness is not completely flooded with suffering. Renewing the rock again and again, replacing what has been ground away. And a little beyond that.
In the city I have to consciously do yogic breathing, meditation, shamanic journeying, and a few other things, so that my inner certainty about the security in the meaning always remains present in my being. If I don’t do this, then I sink into the vortex of materialistic madness, filled with suffering, just like everyone else…
This is how it looks…
