Just a moment ago, I awoke to the humming sounds of an engine with the views of the world passing by. Olive, lime and muted tones of landscape that disappear as quickly as they appear as I proceed along the highway. This is pure, uninterrupted nature: one without the music, without pedestrians, without the deadlines or bills or people to account for. Right now in this moment I am at peace. My conscious…along with my heart, my mind and my spirit are completely aligned.
They say that all we truly seek in life is happiness. But what if what we seek isn’t a temporary emotional condition-yet a permanent state of the mind, body and soul? What if the purpose of life is to simply be at peace?
Peace, as in the ability to fully appreciate all that we are doing. To acknowledge that we are blessed to even be doing it. To literally stop and smell the daisies. To be aware that we are here, and that we exist to exist. To dismiss the worries of a future and the accidents of our past. To accept that the universe has placed us where we are (right NOW) for a reason. Not to compare ourselves to the next man, but to realize that we are where we are because it is simply MEANT to be that way.
You don’t have to be the richest person in the world to feel this. If you’re at a state of internal pandemonium, no matter the extent, take time out of your schedule and be alone. Take a bus to a neighboring town, or take a long walk by yourself. And in the duration of that walk sit and talk to yourself (it’s not crazy, it’s moreso therapeutic). Get in touch with that inner divine spirit that we all possess. Let our physical bodies tap into that subconscious and fully digest that energy. Just stop what you are doing and embrace what you are doing. It just might be the beginning to the wake-up call you needed.
