“For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.” ― Kahlil Gibran
We’re so often mired in our thoughts that we fail to see, experience or understand life — in all its beauty.
But when we’re an ‘out there’ society, it’s no wonder.
Of course, it sounds hackneyed to ‘journey within’ but where do you think you’ll find happiness? Running around like a crazed lunatic, looking to fix or change everything you see?
Or more precisely, sit, observe, feel and listen to…life. You know that vast expanse that fills our lungs every time we breathe, that aching feeling we get when a loved one leaves us or the vastness of nature.
Only when we are one with everything, can we really begin to understand the logic of the idea that we (true Self ) are not our thoughts.
If you think this too way out there, please tell me where else you’ll travel to find happiness. Not in another series of personal dreams, driven home by goal-setting, positive affirmation or consuming everything in sight I’d hope.
No, if my experience is anything to go by (over 40 years), it will bring you right back to where you started.
