I think the most beautiful walks you could ever take are the ones without a clear destination. Bonus points if you get lost.Then it becomes an real adventure! Now think about life. Isn’t it similar to a random walking. You don’t know where you’re going but you keep on moving until the very end.
Why are there so many of us searching for meaning in life? Why can’t we just enjoy it without looking at every little corner for something that probably isn’t there? What if it doesn’t have a meaning just because it’s much more enjoyable? Just as our lovely walk without a destination life is more enjoyable without a goal!
What a scary notion for us, humans! Living without a goal, not knowing what we want. So uncertain, so contingent!
But what do you suppose it will happen if we manage to take off the black veil and accept life for what it really is? I think the way we see life will change. Everyone would be a wanderer. We would understand that there are thousands of paths one could choose from. We wouldn’t take everything so serious…after all it’s just a walk and everybody comes back home sooner or later.
Try to change. Try to view the big picture. Keep on walking my friends!
You woke up one day and found yourself thrown on a random planet called earth! What can you do..? It wasn’t your decision! It just happened!
If you’re lucky, you get to live in a place where you can focus on more relevant issues than food and shelter. The unlucky ones are stuck in a vicious circle. Every day they have to work hard just to survive. If they don’t, they will get hungry and cold. Discomfort and pain, every single day! That’s not fair. It shouldn’t be like that in the modern age! Wouldn’t be fair to make this journey, which we never sign for, comfortable for everyone who’s thrown in here?
Change can’t start from the unlucky ones. How could it when they need to work all day just to eat? We, the “lucky” ones, the ones that never need to worry about such commodities, have to do it! We have to think for a moment. Each of us are living beings. Each of us is human. With a bit of empathy it’s possible to see beyond illusions, to see what is truly important.
Nobody chose to be born. We’ve all been taken for a ride without our consent. Now as good guests and with all the knowledge we accumulated over the centuries, it’s possible to make this ride as pleasant as possible. Shouldn’t that be our most important goal as a race?!
For some reason, we chose something different. We chose to ignore what’s truly important and run after illusions. Our ego can be thanked for that. We believe it’s us against the world. Some of us want power. Some of us can’t accept the bigger picture. Some of us are controlled by the media which tells us to consume, consume, consume, new, new, new. Millions of illusions blind us!
I wonder how much longer can the illusions last? Will we destroy ourselves due to them? Or finally progress as a whole? Here’s an interesting thought:
We became conscious from unconscious when we were born. One day we will die and become once again unconscious. If you look closely, you can see resurrection everywhere, a flower, a tree, an animal, nature works in cycles. What if you’ll reborn(turn from unconscious into conscious again) as one of the unlucky ones next time? Wouldn’t it be best for all of us to transcend this deplorable state? 🙂
You’re on your way home, very tired and sleepy. Just another day at work or school and now you just can’t wait to get home and throw yourself on that cozy bed of yours!
But wait! If you’re like me, you probably can’t. As soon as you arrive home and it’s getting late, guess what? You start feeling energized! You start to feel good, euphoric even! All sorts of thoughts hit you! Maybe you should paint your walls in purple. Maybe you should take a long bath and meditate. Or maybe you feel like painting, reading. Anything really, as long as it’s not sleep. And how could you sleep while there’s so much to be done and it’s feeling so great.
You feel the tiredness but it’s in the background. The euphoric feeling is the main attraction, like a stain on the background. Just like when two main colors mix to become another one, the energy/good vibe plus tiredness makes everything better!
That’s not all. During the night you can be at peace. You’re alone with yourself and your thoughts. It makes you feel in control! Everyone else is asleep, but not you. Isn’t that powerful? I doubt there’s anything that can make you feel more in control than the feeling that you’re the last man standing!
I think nights are like bath for the soul if you know how to use them!. Have the courage to go out for a walk in the middle of the night. And you’ll fall in love!
But like any coin, it has two sides. Waking up early in the morning is almost impossible. It’s a small price to pay for being able to be yourself, create for yourself, and enjoy life.
All you night owls around here! I salute you! Keep on going! The enemy is strong. He wants us to believe that the night is for sleep and the day for chores! He is stealing what is ours by right and wants to replace it with something unworthy! Don’t give up! Embrace the night and never leave her again!
