Pain and Grief by Franco Santoro

“Pain and grief have been kept buried for ages, bred in secrecy and shame, wrapped by an ongoing conspiracy of smiles and well-being. Pain and grief are most healing and ecstatic emotions. Yes, sure, they can be hard, yet what makes them most devastating is the perverted idea that they are wrong, that they need to be hidden and fixed.

The greatest perversion I can conceive is the idea that illness and pain are a sign that there is something wrong in our life, that we have unresolved issues, that we have made mistakes. In this world everyone is bound to get ill, experience pain and die.

The greatest gift I can give to myself and the world is the joyful acceptance of this. Today I want to be real, I will not hide my pain as well as my happiness. I will not care if my gloomy face or desperate words cause concern or embarrassment in others. I do not need be fed with reassuring words about the beauty of life.

The beauty of life resides in the full acceptance of All That Is.”

Healing Communication by Franco Santoro

Healing communication in this world involves a mere and ongoing exchange of unconditional blessings and forgiveness horizontally, amongst human beings. At the same time it implies releasing curses and grievances verticaly, towards those luminous dimensions which can transform them.

Once we start this process we simply keep confirming our blessings horizontally, while releasing grievances vertically. It does not matter how we refine and embellish our language. What counts is that the healing process takes place.

Once we learn to use language for this process, language will not be needed anymore. We will be the process.

I bless and forgive you and me unconditionally.

Confusion and Uncertainty by Franco Santoro

If you feel confused and uncertain regarding your life purpose, this is not necessarily a problem. On the contrary it may be a sign of very good multidimensional health. Perhaps you should be more concerned when you feel absolutely clear and certain regarding who you are and what you are supposed to do in this world.

In this world there seems to be so many people who are clear regarding their identity and objectives in life. Mass media in particular play a vital role in promoting this category of individuals. The point is that this flaunted clarity and certainty is in most cases sheer fiction, mere propaganda aimed at convincing others about what their objectives in life should be.

Have you ever seen an advertising, or a politician or religious authority, expressing uncertainty, confusion and doubts regarding their products or ideas? Most unlikely! There is no market for confusion and uncertainty. This is because people have too much of it, and don’t want more. Nobody would ever sell something that everybody has, and for free.

Uncertain and confused people are the primary consumers of what provides clarity and certainty. Then once these uncertain people are convinced about the certainties they have been sold, they become the main promoters of those certainties.

If you feel confused and uncertain regarding who you are, what you are doing here and what your objectives are in life, accept your condition, do not rush to change anything. Certainty and clarity are the primary drugs of mankind, they serve the purpose of denying our capacity to question who we are, to ask ourselves what we are doing in this world, to open to the mystery of our existence.

If you feel confused and uncertain, if you have the courage to openly admit it, without pretending to be clear and certain, this is probably a sign that you are still alive, that you truly exist. Perhaps you are one of the few human beings who is still real, an endangered species, a glimpse of hope for mankind.

All relationships are multidimensional by Franco Santoro

All relationships are multidimensional, unlimited by time and space, united and whole, part of the same ecstatic web of life.

Every significant individual we meet in our life is an emanation of multiple forces, simultaneously dwelling in different worlds.

When you see people as static categories, identifying them with fixed roles and functions, based on your trite or refined conditioning, you sentence them to death. And with them also your soul will be ultimately put to death.

Release all the prisoners you have kept in the cages of your separated mind, proclaim a general amnesty, liberate everybody, make them all free to be who they truly are!

Then, relax and finally embrace the ecstatic authenticity of your multidimensional luminous self.

Apart from the above, there is truly nothing else to do here.
