The world can feel so unsteady yet so precise, and something about people is so rich yet fragile. Somehow these constant dualities keep the world spinning, with all its forces, while maintaining perfect balance.
If you are more doubtful than certain about something, drop it. You are likely to gain clarity after you walk away from it. If there are things you are capable of doing and should be doing, then make them a priority no matter how busy you think you are. You have much more control of your life than it seems. As for the anxiety and restlessness that comes along with thoughts of the future, just pray. Please know that your prayers and wishes are being indirectly answered, one day at a time. One opportunity at a time, one coincidence at a time, one detour at a time, you are either being guided towards where you need to go or being steered away from what does not serve you.
My love for the world cannot stay on paper
I want it to reach every corner of the earth
And fill the abandoned spaces between people
My love doesn’t belong to me
It belongs inside people
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
Every now and then I think about a castle between the clouds
Up so high
Where trouble can’t reach
Some place for me to lay
A place to tell the truth
Most times, you don’t need a vacation, or book, or a transformation to find what you need. Even grand optimism will fail at some point. There will come a time when absolutely nothing can inspire you and you will only have yourself to dig your way out of the rut. You are your greatest asset. You were created to stand.
I can’t help but feel like this world doesn’t belong to us. We are no more than passerbys or customers at a store. Once upon a time, it was a matter of affording to restock our shelves with essentials. But one day that was no longer enough, so we opened malls and coffee shops, then recreational centers and casinos. We fed the world our fantasies and it gave us so much luxury in return. When existential questions were too difficult to confront, the world offered us getaway packages. But the glamour of this world doesn’t define us nor does the chaos of war. Our culture trains us to emphasize pride and vanity because who doesn’t want a life enriched with beautiful things?
