Beyond the appearances…while I am observing those persons


Maybe, we should have to take a look to what lies beyond the appearances. It’s there that we should learn to look.

We are often, very often, stuck in a series of conditioning is that deny us to see, really see. And, when we have understood what and how we should observe, we don’t have enough energy to do it.

We prefer a quiet life. Maybe a little bit monotonous, but in any case quiet. We remain in a scheme with faint tints while we could live in a picture with intense colours, but not only: we could also exit from the frames of such a picture.

Let’s try to get really in contact with the persons with which we live and interact, instead of choose a “voluntary isolation” we often justify as “our right of privacy”, but often, very often, is mere fear.

In order to grasp what lies behind the appearances, we have to question what we believe to having understood, and shift the look from the point where our attention is automatically attracted to the area that surrounds this point.

Let’s make an example: if we observe a person, let’s go beyond the act of listen its words.

Let’s try to observe its tone colour, the gestures and the posture, the clothes, the environment in which it use to live or where it works, its fellows, friends and how it interacts with them; if we lunch with this person, let’s continue to observe, what and how it eats, how it reacts to a setback or a problem,etc…

There are so many aspects that transpire beyond the appearances that we could notice… if only we could remember to observe a little bit.

And, observation, is not only an act we perform with our eyes, but with our outer and inner senses, preferably, as best we can, with our whole being.

In such a way, we could really understand better those near us, beyond how he or she believes of appear… beyond what we think to know about this person.

This is the gateway for empathy… and compassion.

Now we could really say to this person with sincerity:”Yes, I understand you”.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
