The unknown always shocks my system like diving into a freezing lake. It leaves me shaking and trying to find warmth of certainty that does not exist. The sooner I learn to release this idea that I even have a clue then life becomes easier and events align accordingly. It is in the attempt to control and find cheat sheets to answers to imaginary exams that boggle my mind. Am I going the right way, and where does that right way lead.
This is nonsense talk of the obscene alternative worlds, like a maze without end. To untangle a thought is to let it go. I have recently began a morning and evening meditation practice as a regular habit. Much like brushing teeth and washing ones face, I want to wash away the debris of yesterday. This allows the mind to unwind and accept the step in which we land. So that when we stand we are sure footed because we are no where else.
We are present in this moment and that is when we are free. Suffering is our expectation of an alternative reality. There is no rush no hurry. What for? That would mean that we are running to the end and the end is ultimately death. So in death are there answers? More then likely not. It is in this breath of knowing that we have today and we are blessed. I slow the mind, so I then can touch the soul and purpose of why I am here by being here.
