Being completely normal

 

We must be completely normal people, who have our feet firmly planted on the ground, but ever aware that while we live in this world, we are not of it.
– from an introduction to an interview with Zlatko Sudac

This is another pointer that can be very helpful.

How sane, mature, wise and kind am I in a conventional sense? How do I appear to others? If they see something in me that is not sane, mature, wise or kind, what is the truth in it? Can I find it for myself?

Is there any reason to not appear sane, mature, wise and kind in this situation?

If something looks weird, what is going on? Am I acting on a belief there? Am I acting on a fixed viewpoint, identified with a role or identity?

And finally, what happens if I make pointer into a belief? If I use it to box in life?

What happens if I use it as a question only?

……………..

outline….

  • completely normal
    • appear sane, mature, wise, kind also in a conventional sense (nothing weird)
    • live in, not of (appearances in form, but what we really are is not that)
