Belief brings me close to You
but only to the door.
It is only by disappearing into
That I will come in.
Alright. I’ve wondered at that. There has been the deconstruction, the unlearning. There has been the going to the edge and there has been the dark night.
Then I come across this piece and feel as if Jacques Lacarriere is describing happenings inside my head:
Unlearning. Deconditioning your birth.
Forgetting your name. Going naked.
Sloughing away your last remains. Disrobing your memory.
Melting down your masks.
Ripping up your duties. Dismantling your certainties.
Disconnecting your doubts. Losing control of your being.
Unbaptizing your springs. Unmapping your roads.
Shearing your desires. Gutting your passions.
Desacralizing the prophets. Discrediting the future.
Defrocking the sacred. Sobering up from vertigo.
Defacing Narcissus. Delivering Gilead.
Deposing Moloch. Dethroning Leviathan.
Demystifying blood. Dissecting the monkey.
Disinheriting the ancestor.
Unburdening your soul. Unfailing your failures.
Disenchanting your despair. Unchaining your hope.
Delivering your madness. Defusing your fears.
Disencumbering your heart. Disappointing your death.
Debasing your basis. Shredding your acquisitions.
Unlearn. Become naked
Alright. So I’m not alone. Good to know.
