It’s been a while now since I’m trying to live up with an enormous heavy mental conflict.
The question started with a simple “Why”..but the answer was not that simple.
I love life, and I know a lot of people that do, although they pretend to despise it. But it’s obvious they don’t, because simply they still want the best of it, they strive for its instantaneous pleasures, they fight for its erroneous delights. And when the idea of death is spoken, they don’t warmly welcome it.
So We Love Life, we try our best to reach our aspirations and feel content. And during this journey, we cry, we fail, we fear, we get so anxious and so attached to our desires, we even become obsessed with our wants and struggle with our own demons..On the other hand, we have admitted long ago that there is a source, a source that created us from nothing, took care of us, granted us uncountable blessings, and we know that we shall return to this source again. We KNOW that! we are not doubting it..we are not giving it a second thought..we are not denying it (supposedly)..we agreed to believe in it…
And here comes the big question mark: By trusting in such a belief, logically, we should not be suffering from the disease of life attachments. I’m not saying we should hate life, but what I’m pointing at is that we should not get that much attached to it to a point that we allow feelings of eternal fear and anxiety to penetrate our hearts. We shouldn’t be forgetting that whatever we are doing today won’t last forever. We should always remember that we were born on Earth for a reason and that this Source is always there looking upon us. We are not alone. We will never be.
So How come we know, and by knowing I mean trusting and believing..how come we know this truth as a fact and still act as if we don’t know it? How come we ignore it? How come we don’t see it?
I wonder how can we reach the balance, the balance between our attachment to life and our knowing of its true reality. It’s only then when we can reach a true and deep sense of happiness and inner peace. Those cannot be reached unless we are aligned with the authenticity of life.
