semi-permeable wall

Death is the wall that holds us back. From whom and what we might be. No, the wall is the fear of dying. Death is the semi-permeable membrane that opens life to us. Death is a conversation.

Die every minute

We must die every minute: to the project of ego, to whom we thought we were, to what we thought the world is and means: if we are to grow, to see, to meet.

One lesson

One lesson from Jesus is that we must give up all for life.

Comfortable in this cocoon

Conversation is a death, necessary to new life. We must give up whom we have been in order to become new. Not everyone wants to become new, to give up what they have been. It has been comfortable in this cocoon, even though everything is turning soft, then to mush, then to goo. I spun this cocoon myself, a lot of work and sweat went into it. I’d rather just sit in front of this screen.

Death in conversation

Our death in conversation is real and risky: we may not emerge on the other side. So we have a choice. Here is a threshold.

Through those names

Conversation creates new names and through those new meanings, and through those a new us-in-relation. Relation equals reality.
