The madness continues
It amazes me that I have to tell myself to slowdown. It always seems like I have to rush through life because there’s something or another that I have to do. So I go through life always preoccupied with the next thing that needs to be done and never able to enjoy what going on right now… I mean REALLY enjoy.
To enjoy something completely would be to be lost in it. When this happens, it give me the sensation that I’ve arrived. The yearning emptiness is no longer. I no longer feel cut out or feel like I’m missing something.
Isn’t it strange that by trying to become ONE with everything we feel cut out, left out and the minute you stop trying, you are one with everything.
It would seem like the desire it itself creates the pain, it’s telling me that I’m lacking something, that I’m not complete whereas if you drop the desire, then there’s no emptiness, nothing missing.
Of course it’s very simple to say it because trying not to have a desire can be just another form of desire 🙂 and there you are again running after your smoky dreams.

Reply: I CONSTANTLY FEEL LIKE IM MISSING OUT ON THE BEST QUALITIES IN LIFE LOOKING AND THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE. I AM ALWAYS REMINDING MYSELF TO NOT WORRY BECAUSE WORRYING DOES NOT DO ME A BIT OF GOOD. JUST BY LIVING IN A SMALL COUNTRY TOWN I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE MYSELF SLOW DOWN AND TAKE TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES. I MAKE MYSELF OBSERVE NATURE AT ITS Finest AND THAT HELPS ME TO ENJOY THE MOMENT AND NOT HAVE A LOT OF DESIRES FOR THE FUTURE. JUST A EVERYDAY SUNSET OR WATCHING HUMMINGBIRDS PROVIDES ME WITH A RELAXATION THAT REMINDS ME TO ENJOY LIFE AT THAT VERY MOMENT.
