The World Is Too Fast…

September 28, 2015

Looking at a door that once held a mirror, I noted the plastic encasing where screws bored into the wood. This is intended for long term. Temporary gadgets abound on store shelves today. Even shades are equipped so no nails have to be used.

Jobs, homes, friendships, family…nothing is immune to becoming temporary. Never before have I felt such a loneliness in the world. Always seeking something to satisfy the soul.

Mirages. The lovely refreshing promise (of whatever you are seeking) is in your sights…until you get “right there” …and it disappears. Only sand is left.

Too many mirages.

Too many dreams.

Grains of sand scattered to the wind, leaving nothing more than an irritated life with no pearl.

Everything that exists has always existed. Maybe not as we can ‘see’ it but it is there. Body, mind, soul, and spirit all connect to various aspects of this even if we don’t get it. Ever feel overwhelmed, like there is too much out there? Too much crying and whining. Boo hoo hoo. I’m a victim. They are mean, cruel, …ignorant. Too nice, too sweet, too soft hearted. Need to be stronger, wiser, smarter, more…tolerant. So MUCH need to be, should be, can be, will be, BETTER BE…or ELSE. The entire world is in dire need of putting its heart back in the proper place. The chest…and off the sleeve. The chest is the proper place. The wearing of the heart on one’s sleeve leaves the heart open to spills, crying, bruises, even getting pieces of it scraped or torn away. The heart is central to being. Put it back where it belongs. Protect it. Do not leave it open to life’s absurdities. When in the proper place it connects with the body, mind, soul, and spirit. Otherwise, it is simply an outer adornment that is subject to change with the latest trend. Keep it with all diligence.

This is the world. Hug but don’t touch. Speak, but don’t tell the truth. Respect and disrespect, respectively. See and be blind. Hear with a closed mind. The world is crazy and that’s what makes it sane.
