Our physical condition, as humans, means accumulating continuously and even unconsciously, but still continuously, accumulating..
It might be ideas, hopes, knowledge, information, memories, experiences, thoughts, people, dreams, nonsense even our body is the accumulation of food.
Everything that comes in touch with us leaves something in us, whether we want it or not, whether we realize it or not.
So we gather and gather; so we collect and collect…
But what does it happen when we become so full of all these we collect? what does it happen when we are too full of ourselves?
I remember I used to collect posters when I was a teenager. One day, the walls in my room ended up so full that I could not put another poster on them. The era of collecting posters was over that day.
I will tell you what does not happen where there is no room left between the walls of our lives; change doesn’t happen; routine happens; life doesn’t happen; suffering happens; love and joy doesn’t happen; nonsense happens.
Life happens when you are empty, and let yourself be guided by Life.
Love happens when you are completely open, leaving behind old experiences and memories and heartbreaks.
Flying and freedom happens when you are light, and flexible, and don’t carry excessive weight on your back.
All these you accumulate, of course, can be yours, but they are not you; all these we accumulate can be ours, but they are not us..
Our perception of who we are is so much distorted that we are so much identified with what we think, what we believe, what we know, what we think we know, what we eat, what we remember, etc..
If we limit our sky to the ceiling then there will be no sun to look at in the morning and no stars and moon to look at in the night. We will only look at a limited source of light in our room (a light bulb perhaps) that gives light to our limited full of posters walls, and even that light is bound to last for a limited time.
Let’s not limit our life to things which is always something finite. Let’s go all the way, committed and true, and discover amidst of all creation the immensity of who we are. In the end, I hope we will all be led like rivers to the infinite blue Sea..
