look at us humans, running around, mucking everything up, killing arangatangs, polluting our skies, creating death machines, hating on our fellow brothers & sisters, always hungry for money & self worth. Waking up to loud beeps, spilling coffee, always rushing, always late, always racing-Living up to our name as the human race.
And honestly I don’t have the slightest clue what we’re racing around in such a hurry for. Pulling our hair out over things we won’t even remember in a year, trying to get “somewhere” that doesn’t exist, trying to do everything & ending up doing nothing. It’s a mystery to me. But lately either my sense of humours getting worse or I’m starting to see behind the veil, because its just hilarious to me now.
Watching my mind get all frantic, begging for external validation, attaching to things & clinging to labels. I just feel like this whole thing-shebang, journey, dance, experience-whatever you wanna call life. This whole thing, the thing behind the thing, & why we’re all here is just to connect, love & experience joy. It’s to stop trying so hard & just let life live. It’s to stop fighting our nature & just accept. It’s to learn to find joy in struggle & comfort in discomfort. It’s to find the divine in the daily & the beauty in the messy.
Maybe I’ve gone crazy, but more & more lately, I just look at me & all my thoughts, anxieties & expectations, and I just want to laugh. Laugh at how caught up I get in these worlds I’ve created in my mind, laugh at how worked up I get about this meat suit of a body I’m in-when truly I am not my body & neither are you. Laugh at how upset I get when people don’t meet the expectations Ive placed on them without ever communicating what they were to them, what did I expect, for people to read minds? Laugh at what a fuss I made over the struggles I went through simply because I couldn’t understand the virtue of patience, of slowing down & letting life sort itself out. And Laugh at what a fool I was for trying to find love in all the wrong people & all the wrong places.
And I know there are many more mistakes to come, but I do love laughing so I cannot wait #abeautifulmessbook
