We deal in the “what if’s”
when recognizing how fortunate we are
We convince ourselves that there’s a single point
in our own personal history that our life changed
(for the better or for the worst)
But let’s suspend the rules
Let’s offer the responsibility up to a force greater than our own.
We convince ourselves that things happen for a reason.
As intellectuals, we accept the premise of cause and effect.
…and we convince ourselves that we can take measures to prevent
…things from happening.
Be humbled. Accept that we don’t know!
Not knowing IS ignorance,
But ignorance doesn’t need to be blissful.
The bliss comes from not caring.
But the bliss can come from gaining knowledge.
The bliss can come from the release.
The release of defeat.
The release of deceit.
The release of something sweet.
The receipt of…
…the knowledge that comes from wisdom
…the wisdom that comes from an awareness
…and the awareness that what we know to
Suspend your beliefs.
Slowly close your eyes.
