I want to know what is real
I want to be right.
Take some time
From time to time,
To question every ‘must’ or ‘should’ in your life.
Some of these imperatives might not be valid anymore,
Some may never have been valid in the first place.
It is the attainment of.
Of what? I cannot name it.
It is always available now.
But it may have to wait until you accept that it can happen now.
In this way, it may not happen now.
Or may never happen.
Until you are ready to allow it to.
Whether we like it or not, we humans (usually) crave novelty. Quite obviously, it excites us.
We want new things to do. Mind altering drugs to take and mental spaces to uncover. New lovers to experience. New places to explore. Greener grasses to stand on.
We get bored of ‘old stuff’.
But maybe there’s an easier way to get this feeling, this excitement we’re chasing.
Maybe life can be about ringing every drop of meaning and significance out of the mundane and the present.
Making the ‘normal’ or ‘boring’ experience a novel one.
Seeing the incredible depth, awesome complexity and infinite richness in everything, no matter how ‘exciting’ what you are looking at or experiencing is.
Not becoming jaded.
And not just chasing novelty for the sake of it.
Maybe this is what it is to experience life fully.
Never to be bored again.
Never to be running away from where or what you are.
Maybe this is contentment.
