Human After All

“This world will pass away, and my emotions with it. Why should I strive for acceptance and peace of mind?”

I don’t think I’ve ever really understood those Shai Hulud lyrics until recently. Sometimes I get all swept up in how I’m feeling about my life, about my heart, about my soul. I forget that this life has it’s limitations, and in some ways I’m trapped inside this body. The feelings I have will change, or maybe they will go away, and if I let them too, they may drive me insane thinking about what they mean, but ultimately, they’re not real. I have to remember that I’m part of something bigger. We all are.

But I like the acceptance, and I like the peace of mind to know I’m doing a good job and I’m appreciated. I guess, for right now even though I’m a spiritual being, I’m a human after all.

    I think it’s sometimes hard to live those two lives- the individual and part of something much bigger. Of course you want to feel appreciated and understood and also you have to realize that feelings are fleeting and you won’t always feel the same way. I like this reflection.
    How are you doing?

    1. Im really good. Busy as fuck and working alot You are dead on with what you said. I guess I sometimes I forget that feelings aren’t always tbe same a month later, a year later, etc. and then I’m troubled for no reason. Sometimes I wish I didn’t know what I know. Maybe the lemmings have it easier. How are you?

    I definitely wonder what it’d be like to be mindless sometimes. I’m good. Enjoying the summer. Been busy with my kids and stuff. I’m glad you’re well. 🙂 Take care.
