“What spins can stop, but what never has spun cannot know if it could.”
What we do on a daily basis is usually in the service of some sort of goal, or an end result of some kind. We hope that the things which we consider to be willy-nilly, that we must do everyday will somehow become the result we strive for, and if only we will keep doing what we think makes us feel accomplished, then that is succeeding. Although this helps lots of people keep pushing through life, I believe that repeatedly doing the actions which sustain our need for development might be helpful, but it can also lead us down a dark path of under-achievement.
The only lesson I have for today is the following:
We might feel like we waste time, or that we don’t waste enough time; or the fact that our schedules, which were originally supposed to bring us closer to our goal are now keeping us from it. I mean I know that sometimes when I decided to start or continue something in my life, it made sense for me and for my health, but now I look back and all it is doing is keeping me from my original goal. I find this somewhat saddening, but at the same time, I must rejoice, for I might not have achieved everything I would have liked, but I know in my heart, that I could tell myself that I was always trying, even if it meant utter destruction.
We bring our own peace, there is only the decision to deliver.
