ARE YOU SEEKING, POLISHING, REFINING…
DIGGING, HEALING, CLEANING, BALANCING, PRACTICING, DEEPENING?
Every day? Just a little bit more?
No really. Every day, just a little bit?
I notice the world, a lot. And I notice a lot of people just slipping away. Into the matrix, quietly into the night.
Staring at the eye that blinds and binds in their living room, exhausted by their day, un-rested by their night… un-fullfilled by their work or their worship.
Waiting for Godot.
Life for all too many people is a slide instead of a climb. Falling a little more every day. Drooping a little lower. Sinking into their sofas and their pre-conceived notions of the in-evitability of their decline.
Were we really meant to wither away? Why are we witherers? Survivors?
Where is the drive to thrive? Why has it been replaced by the instinct to survive? Make it through a day. Another night?
Where is the ripening?
I see so few people polishing their “self”. Everyone seeking easy nostrums from pills and quick-fixes from quacks for the body and soul.
Too much work…too little time….
The natural exuberance of life has been lost to the mechanical world. Let someone else do the work. I’ll watch them do it spectacularly on TV.
The fruit of our lives ripens through inner tending. Not by it-self. Our current environment does not allow natural ripening.
Our current environment is a push to give it up to the machine, the specialist, the expert.
There is great joy in discipline. Intense, deep joy.
Please, find it.
- Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty.
