Where I am in Life

October 20, 2013 | By | Add a Comment

My adolescence is dead. I am not yet old, but no longer young. I am not where I thought life would take me, though I find myself content.

Family gives me the greatest pleasure, and friendships after that. I have acquired a small amount of wisdom that guides me each day and preserves me from the thickets of despair and desperation.

I have accepted the anxiety of our age, and finally began the process of understanding its cause. This is the first step towards living outside of it.

The feeling that there is not enough time in a day to do everything necessary is dangerous, and even more so because it is pervasive. We must consider what this means for our lives.

A path with unmeetable demands is not a journey but a form of suffering. The sad thing is that we do not know how badly we suffer.

A Letter to Myself

Slow down my friend, lest you miss it all.
Consider your life, lest clutter forestall.
Meaning and rest, serve to enthrall,
and pure love is precious, above all.
