My soul purpose, my personal legend is all that matters now. All my life energy, focus, effort and thought needs to be channeled and invested into it. I am longer seduced by thoughts of fulfillment in the future, nor enchanted by the reminiscent thoughts of the past. Right now, right here is all that exists. We are tricked by our egos to believe that we are separate from one another and all life on earth. We live in a fear based reality of lack, lack of something… the lack that continues to constantly escape us. We aren’t really sure what we lack but we are always thinking about “it”. Our minds race with thoughts of future gratification, or past harm or pleasure. We bring it with us into where we are right now and actually miss the everyday miracles in what we are doing, who we are with, and where we are. This “something” we lack permeates everything we do and we live constantly in a subtle turmoil. It is the prison we have locked ourselves in, been trained to participate in, trapped inside the walls of all these rules that bind us; from marriage, to “careers”, governed by money, etc. We participate, go through the motions but live somewhere else in our minds. And if we don’t, we fear we will be even more separate than we were before, alone. We yearn to merge with someone, something, the perfect partner, the perfect job, house, etc. It is all part of the illusion, someday we will be complete, fulfilled. This is a battle we all struggle to break free from, but do not realize the struggle is not “without”, it is within…
