“You may agree that trying to control life is a kind of roller coaster of frustration. Change always appears wearing a badge saying “I am Inevitable!” Brenda Shoshanna
My quote today is from the controversial Bagwan Rajneesh..
“Whenever you see seriousness,
Know well something is wrong –
Because seriousness is part of a diseased being.
No flower is serious unless it is ill.
No bird is serious unless it is ill.
An awakened man realizes life is a song.”
It could be said our lives are built upon the idea of limitation and struggle. Could it be that out sense of limitation comes from seeing ourselves as separate and struggling to survive in what seems a hostile world?
Peak moments arise when this separate sense of self vanishes. These primal experiences can be experienced during prayer, love making, meditation, music, art or whenever separation from life dissolves. In this state the person returns home to their source or God if you like.
Meditation can happen while gardening, cycling, running, doing housework and in all those repetitive things we do.
All the more reason to make music, make art, write, photograph, meditate and make love!
