Raw Thoughts From The 'Top' Of The World
Zoom out and enjoy, my friend!
I wake up in the morning and look outside my windows…
What I see staring back at me is the world.
Cars racing to work.
Boats taking in the morning sun.
Buildings housing people from all walks of life.
And it strikes me as odd…
Because from up here you don’t see much separation.
All you see are the individual parts that make up the whole.
But from down there? It’s a different story altogether.
If you pick one car on the bridge at random, for example, you’ll most likely find a man or woman inside with a head full of problems and worries…
Thinking about the career that’s not paying enough.
The relationship that’s on its last leg.
The upcoming doctor’s appointment that may deliver bad news.
And so on and so forth.
It’s all so fucking rough.
And the more you zoom in, the rougher it gets. Stories of conditioning running through the minds of the people causing nothing but suffering and agony.
But the more you zoom out, the freer and more beautiful everything becomes.
No longer perceived as separate, but as one indivisible whole.
And personally speaking…
That’s what I try to keep in mind.
When you’re up here and looking down, the people look so small and their worries look even smaller…
Just tiny zaps of invisible energy flowing through their head.
But when you’re back down on ground level?
Everything appears to be so serious and no longer do you see how everything is connected in the video game of life.
As a result:
You become isolated and suffer.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend my limited time here so zoomed in on the thoughts running through my head that I forget about the whole.
I want to keep my head open and my heart playing the unique note that supports the whole.
Nothing less and nothing more.
Writing these words to you was my way of doing that.
Thanks for reading.
