It’s hard, though. Especially in a world where everything seems to move only through force, fear and/or loudness.
This quote stood out for me because it aligns so well to the spiritual truths I believe in.
What we want most – Happiness and peace – are things that seem the most elusive. Yet in our quest for them we become entangled in the process, in our efforts, in our desires.
When really, all we have to do is stop trying to grasp the ungraspable… and maybe try to see that… we have inside us what we were looking for all along?
That hug from a loved one. The few moments we look up to enjoy the sky. The cool morning air. The smooth journey to work. The moment, the moment, the moment.
I think if I could finally stop grasping, I’d be able to savour the richness of every one of those moments.
Embarking on a new journey this year, there have been numerous opportunities for me to put this belief into practice.
It’s always easy to look at what others have/are and say: “I’m not like that”.
It takes a considerable amount of determination and conditioning to say: “No, I’m not like that. BUT, I am…. … …”
A little more than 2 months on, and the journey continues 🙂
