I just Want to Learn
about the body and life
i’m not interested in describing some god or spirits
i find the world mysterious enough
why is body work so often associated with something called spirituality?
and why is that spirituality so often just used as a term and not described? it is used by so many different people and
it is used by so many different people and belief systems. whose descriptions of the world differ a lot.
so – what does it really mean?
i don’t get it and i don’t want to be mixed up with a god-/depicting/-belief-system
i think the world is quite amazingly mysterious.
and – i guess i have said this a couple of times – there is a lot we can explain. and a lot we cannot. and the more we can explain, the more is still also unknown.
sometimes putting things in words can create such a wonderful sensation of clarity
and sometimes it can be so much the opposite …when words are used without description or definition.
when words are used without description or definition.
buzzwords that seem to be the same for everyone and still they’re so vague
which in itself doesn’t actually matter so much. but when they are used as if they were clear and as if we all meant the same anyways, then i find it creating this weird haze.
and then people suddenly come in arguments or in agreement, without actually agreeing – coming with different basic assumptions about the matter.
i think, in an interpersonal direct contact, this is also very easily possible to clarify. if you so wish. you can ask. you can notice with your body if you’re in agreement with the other or not, if you understand each other. much easier, than just with words because there is a lot of other information available and coming through different channels than just the words.
but when you write publicly or talk to more people, i miss this clarity.
and at the same time, i know even if there were clarity, someone could only listen to parts of it and change the meaning again…
so what’s the point?
i don’t know.
actually, somehow my conclusion is to only answer questions about my spirituality individually… because i can then ask for the definition of the terms that aren’t clear for me.
and then again – sometimes, when you get the same question so many times, it’s really tempting to write a more general answer.
i don’t consider myself spiritual. mostly because i don’t know what this is supposed to mean.
i just want to learn.
i find the body and life magical in the ways that they can be both very simple and so complex
things can just happen and can get so stuck
people can be inspiring
and so freakishly scary
none of it makes sense
but all of it is
for me it is easier to sleep at
night, when i don’t try to figure out how things make sense
(how could anything that is happening out there make sense??)
when i instead notice what happens
learn how to move and how to stand up for what i belief
in the chaos that is life
