A life of latency, of waiting, wasting and playing the wastrel, is not for us. We are here to express who we are in our essence. That’s the job. And it’s not optional. “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
“I got my eyes on the prize,” said the donkey to the carrot.
“I put a spell on you.” Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
The real search is the search for oneself. If we are serious, we will stop collecting experiences. We do not need more experiences. All we need now is to breathe from our heels.
This is the secret that time draws us away from: Nothing we can find, get, achieve or accumulate will make us happier than we are right now.
A sojourner is a person who occupies a space temporarily. We’re all sojourners.
