BEING NICE

Being Nice

Instinct leads us to survive under any and all circumstances, sparking tremendous creativity that falls into patterns that compose our self-identity and behavior. Our personality is a monument to the kind of social pressures that have shaped us – family, friends, colleagues, spirit of the time – reflecting a type. Every individual invariably falls into one kind, and every generation grows the same ones over and over again. There is nothing original or unique about personality.

Some of us construct more attractive façades than others, yet every single one of them is forged on adaptation, a series of mechanisms that assures human response, buffeting isolation and aloneness. Still, behavioral masks come at the cost of soul contact and harbor disagreeable although often veiled characteristics, unconsciousness, anger and fear. Somewhere too, beautiful soul characteristics manage to surface from time to time, although scratching the surface, it is not difficult to discover flaws of selfishness.

There is one type of identity pattern that wins the popularity contest and manages to evade criticism. Everybody likes a nice person. Nobody wants to feel uncomfortable and […]

“Legacy: a soul´s journey”

Zulma Reyo’s most recent book after the publication in 2011 of “The Inner Woman”,

was launched worldwide on 30 May in Mallorca.

The Puertorrican writer acknowledged before the audience, “It wasn´t easy to make sense of the information that had been gathering inside of me for a long time.” As she says, we are dealing “with “a historical account of Earth, humanity, individual life, gender and above all, the teaching and spiritual transmission throughout the ages.”

In its pages, several historical characters are analyzed, women and men, in order to better understand the evolution of the human being to our days.  She says, “with the intention of helping us to understand where we come from and the origin of gender perspective.”  Reyo submerges the reading in an inquiry of the possibilities that woman has before her and her relationship with man, prompting us to glimpse how the role of woman will be essential and direct in the improvement of our common world.  A total experience in which the urge is to release the ballast of […]

THE UNFOLDING DRAMA: ADAM, EVE AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT part III

A MAN’S EXPERIENCE OF ADAM’S INHERITANCE

Frodo

It may be providential that we are not able to fully understand one another. Extreme symbiosis might shatter the fragile identity we require as individuals and alter the tension needed for collaboration and reproduction.   ZR

The most difficult task in my career has been to go outside my own gender faculties to understand a man as he understands and feels himself. No matter how neutral or objective my intent, whatever I did was imagined or projected as a woman.

I had to first discern and then stand aside from my female third dimensional sensitivity in order to blend with a parallel frequency that would allow physical, emotional, and mental imprints to surface from my memory bank. That could only happen from the perspective of soul. From that angle, each and every male life contrasted sharply with the dynamics of the feminine structure I favored. Looking through the other lens revealed a wholly different world.

My own memories of masculine lives always reveal a sense of separation from the surroundings that actually facilitates dealing with detail and therefore with […]

THE UNFOLDING DRAMA: ADAM, EVE AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT – part II

A WOMAN’S EXPERIENCE OF EVE’S INHERITANCE AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT – part II

As Eve´s daughter, women spell trouble. We stir up the atmosphere. Wherever we appear there is ambivalence. I don’t remember a moment in my life where I wasn’t questioning, and I don’t think that I am very different from my sisters.

Even as a child there was always a power inside of me pulling strings and knowing more than I “thought” I did. All I had to do was focus and adjust my feelings in order to connect with something. Flashes of insight provoked by the peak experience of that kind of tuning-in allowed me to glimpse aspects that might best be described as invisible. In a way, through the generation and manipulation of my own feeling-intensity, I automatically conditioned myself to create upheavals that broke through the apparent inertia of things-as-they-are in order to reach deeper realities. Each woman does it in her own style, even the quiet ones.

Development

I have had a tumultuous relationship with “femaleness” at a personal and also on an objective […]

EL PERPETUO DRAMA: ADÁN, EVA Y EL FRUTO PROHIBIDO – parte II

UNA EXPERIENCIA FEMENINA DE LA HERENCIA DE EVA Y EL FRUTO PROHIBIDO

Como hija de Eva, las mujeres somos problemáticas. Agitamos la atmósfera. Donde estemos hay ambivalencia. No recuerdo ningún momento de mi vida en el que no estuviera cuestionando las apariencias, y no creo que soy muy diferente de mis hermanas.

Incluso de niña siempre había un poder dentro de mí que tiraba de las cuerdas y sabía más de lo que “pensaba” saber. Todo lo que tenía que hacer era enfocarme y ajustar mis sentimientos para conectarme con algo. Los destellos de perspicacia provocados por la experiencia máxima de ese tipo de adaptación me permitieron vislumbrar aspectos que podrían llamarse invisibles. De alguna manera, a través de la generación y manipulación de mi propia intensidad de sentir, me auto-condicioné automáticamente para crear una agitación que rompiese la aparente inercia de las cosas tal como son, para llegar a realidades más profundas. Cada mujer lo hace en su propio estilo, incluso las más tranquilas.

Desarrollo

He tenido una relación tumultuosa con la “feminidad” a nivel personal y también a […]

O PERPÉTUO DRAMA I: ADÃO, EVA E O FRUTO PROIBIDO

O PERPÉTUO DRAMA I:

ADÃO, EVA E O FRUTO PROIBIDO

EM TRÊS PARTES

Seja verdadeira, simbólica, literal ou completamente falsa, a história de Adão e Eva nos deixou, a homens e mulheres de diferentes raças e credos, um legado misteriosamente para representar um drama idêntico de importância crescente.

 

O cenário

O poder está nas mãos de um potentado ambíguo e assexuado, com poder para decidir sobre a vida e a morte. Suas atitudes assemelham-se à de dono de escravos com controle total sobre as pessoas. Não existe a necessidade de moralidade ou consciência. Não existem precedentes nem modelos a seguir, a não ser a única regra que é de obediência absoluta. Não há nada fora disto. Quando o tédio da infinita falta de atividade mental se rompe por um exercício de iniciativa pessoal, as criaturas e todos os que estão conectados a elas são condenados a suportar uma saga de infortúnio, sofrimento e dor. A trama está preparada para um jogo de polaridades que define o mundo material.

 

Ato I

Como ator principal está Adão, um homem débil e dominado por […]

THE UNFOLDING DRAMA: ADAM, EVE AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT – part I

THE UNFOLDING DRAMA:  ADAM, EVE AND THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT

a three part series

 

Whether true, symbolic, literal or entirely false, the story of Adam and Eve bequeaths an uncannily similar legacy to men and women of varying race and creed to enact an identical drama of unfolding import.

The Stage

The power behind the story rests in the hands of an ambiguous sexless potentate with rights over life and death. His manner resembles that of a slave owner who controls its creatures. There is no need for morality or consciousness; there are no precedents or models to follow, just one rule: absolute obedience. Nothing exists outside of this. When the tedium of endless mindlessness is broken by an exercise of personal initiative, the creatures and everyone connected to them are condemned to endure a saga of misfortune, suffering and pain. The plot is set for the play of polarities that will define the material world.

Act I

As lead actor, Adam is a weak, henpecked specimen of manhood. Eve as airy-fairy believer is the supporting actress who drives him from behind the […]

QUESTIONABLE AUTHENTICITY

QUESTIONABLE AUTHENTICITY

The harrowing sense of insecurity and over-stimulation that prevails in our time produces a weak and very questionable authenticity. Truth be told, most people are too busy standing guard over their beliefs to connect with self-conviction, and behind this lamentable condition, we crouch in a mythical make-believe of privacy and autonomy.

We are strongly influenced by what another person sees in us, whether we agree with it or not. We are mirrors to one another, ill fated to respond to reflections rather than to inner stability, integrity or conviction.

It may appear that we can keep thoughts to ourselves, and mask feelings. However, anger, sadness, excitement, inspiration, or the heaviness of indifference color the atmosphere surrounding us at all times. There is nothing personal about it. Human beings constantly emit fields of energy and forces that are in perpetual motion and infiltrate our fragile physical structure, floating and mixing with surfaces much like dust moats in the air. Thoughts and feelings shape our experience of reality and there is little difference if they are outside expressions or if they respond to […]

CHAOS – Eternal Companion

Every instant of every minute is composed of microseconds of what we might regard as meaningless chaos.  Life resembles a series of disparate occurrences mysteriously and finely woven over the backdrop of Infinity.  Woman and man learn to administrate the currents of appearance to construct a meaning that might soften the depth of the abyss that always lies within.

We grow with the conviction that we need something to become what we wish, to do what we like, or simply to be happy.  We hardly tolerate the intensity of the void that insinuates itself in bottomless aloneness.  We know without knowing that we are but a drop in the chaos of the Infinite… and we negate it.

Everyone goes through a stage of passionate search outside.  In this phase we do not distinguish physical needs from emotional ones, or those of the soul.  We want to be “together” with something safe, something greater, or someone with whom we may share it all.  In women, the emotional resonance of this is almost obsessive.  In men, the needs are slightly different, but equally compelling.

Implacably, […]
