What Do We Wait For?

You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. - Steve Jobs

left naked

Here Steve's talking about everything in Life being very temporary, to the point that nothing's certain, certainly not our bodies. Therefore he suggests, go for it, do what your heart urges you to do, life's too short!

Why Haggle With God?

God is trying to sell you something

But you don't want to buy.

That is what your suffering is:

Your fantastic haggling,

Your manic screaming over price.

- Hafez

the end of suffering...

We cause most of our own suffering if not all of it. It's our way to justify being small and cowardly. Directly or indirectly we blame God for it all. But God has no part in our suffering, his hand is always extended towards us while we insist on looking away. When will we turn our head back towards God and grasp his hand to safety and peace?

When Will We Stop Running?

You can't get away from yourself by going to a boozebar. - Elbert Hubbard

can't hide

Whenever we distract ourselves we're running away from self. Distractions include booze, food, sex, TV, even reading, our phones of course, just about every action or thought activity we engage in. Agreed it's a very strict definition for 'distraction' but that's necessary if we want to get to the crux, the very center, of who we are.
