“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.
