Happiness is a Distraction (Part 2)

What is the realest of emotions? Think about the time when you've felt the most pain. When you've been feeling the lowest of lows. When life seems unbearable. When you've longed for something you can't have. When you're mourning a loss.

Pain is the ultimate state of realness. You know you're alive when you feel the most pain. It's severe. It's raw. It's really living.

I'm saying this cautiously though. My intentions are not to glorify pain. I'm not saying it's a state one should seek and hold on to. It's just part of a difficult process of realizing Truth and dicovering self(lessness).

Letting go involves pain. Pain is an inevitable part of letting go.
Letting go is freedom. Pain is freedom.
Letting go is peace.

Pain is peace.

Happiness is a Distraction

Happiness is the flakiest state of being. It's the most superficial of all sentiments. It's not real. It's ego-driven and for this reason, short-lived. Happiness is also a distraction. Desiring happiness prevents us from our search for Truth - that essence, which is inside all of us. Seeking happiness distracts us from the discovery of self(lessness).

It's been a long time...shouldn't have left you

It's been so long since I've posted that I don't know if anyone is still following my blog...
I've been busy outside of cyberspace and also sort of "cheated" on blogspot with another blogspace...was testing other waters so to speak. I've even thought about leaving blogspot altogether...but can't seem to do it.

This space means a lot to me. Seriously. I can't lose the connections I've made with some amazing bloggers/writers even though I haven't been blogging like I used to before. This space has been a source of inspiration and strength during some tough times.

Anyway, please bear with me and my sporadic postings...I need to think through where I'm at with all of this.
