Gossip Is A Form Escapism

The absence of self inquiry…

Behind the psychological puppet, which is the need of gossiping, there is the puppeteer of comparison… and above it there is mere insecurity, existential ignorance and absolute absence of self inquiry.

In truth the act of gossiping is not really curiosity… it is not even an interest… but rather it is a form escapism from the personal insecurity made by a superficial attempt to embroider a social dress so to improve our own identity…

Where there is profound insecurity and the mind thinks superficially… then gossip becomes extremely important…

When we gossip, what captures our stimulation the most is the ‘bad’ side of the person or the people we are gossiping about… isn’t it true?

So why are we so interested to locate and to gossip about the silliness, the pettiness, the bad dresses, the bad attitudes and behavior, the bad lifting and postures, the unpleasant sentences and the whole personalities of the others ?

Why the mind functions that way? Have ever inquired in this peculiarity? Or would you rather say that that inquiry is boring and just have fun in this great world of superficiality ?

Why our mind functions so pettily? When we sense the hunger of gossip then we capture the negative side, the misery, the stupidity, the silliness of people.. but, by being dominated by such banality in our process of thinking, we are even more miserable that the objects of our gossiping observation ..

Can we realize it? The tremendous waste of psychological energies aimed to set ourselves even more superficial than what we are ?

I suggest that in each moment the urge of gossiping comes… a not fully superficial mind should direct its observation toward the very mechanics of that urge… by locating the very beginning of the process of thinking that leads there… so the capture that source from which this urge springs out… ’cause behind that source lies our insecurity…

Surely to investigate in our insecurity is abviously more important 7 productive than feeding the comparison through gossip… which is instead mere escapism
